Capt. George Robarge, master of the propeller S. S. CURRY, says the sea serpent is not a myth. With his own eyes, he beheld the hideous monster. It was sunset, says the captain, on his last trip down from Duluth, when near White Fish Point (Lake Superior) that the antediluvian reptile thrust its long neck above the surface some 400 yards distant from the CURRY. For fully five minutes, the submarine beast kept itself in view and amused itself by racing with the propeller.

The captain, the second mate and the watchman all saw the curious creature. They leveled the glasses upon it with interest, seasoned with a little dread. The serpent's neck was some 15 feet in length and its jaws parted a foot or more. Ever and anon its body rose above the waves and revealed a strange undulating motion. Suddenly it disappeared and was seen no more.
