ONE MONSTER CUCUMBER ! The Barre Patriot states that Mr. Wm. Cowee, of West Brookfield, has now growing in his garden a cucumber four feet in length, minus one inch. He has another of the same species, which is about three feet long. This statement is made upon the authority of a gentleman who has measured those vegetable monsters.
