Peekskill Has a Mysterious Fish A strange story of a mysterious fish on good authority from that usually unimaginable locality, Ver- plank's Point, near Peekskill, is to the effect that the creature came ashore alive, died or was killed there and was surgically operated upon by boys who used stones for operat­ ing instruments and found much in­ teresting matter in its inner columns. From the description given, the fish was four feet long by two feet at its greatest width, had a tail more like that of a dog than of a fish and a mouth thirteen inches wide, cap­ able of opening it to a height of twelve inches. Inside the mouth were double rows of teeth, some of which wore an inch and some an inch nnd a half in length. Upon cutting the monster open the boys found in its stomach six round nose sturgeons And one sucker. A<ZP<] nnd experienced fishermen, who ex iiiiiticil the strange, piscato­ rial find, were unable t o tell to what i lass or tribe it belonged The Evidence in the Case. ^ years use ii e\ ulence—Millions of consumers is evidence—sales made by 16,000 agents is i valence You buy 4 gallons L & M I'IUIU 3 gallons Fure l.inseed oil | at 60c J mix ihem and make 7 gallons best paint ready for n^e cost only Si 20 per gahau—done in two min­ utes \J M Paint agents.
