A FISH STORY. - The following curious story is told by the captain of the propeller Missouri, which left several weeks since on her way to Lake Superior. On her way between this port and Milwaukee, the vessel sprang a leak, and the pumps were put to work. When near Milwaukee, however, it was noticed that the leak was stopped, and when the vessel had gone into dry dock at the latter place, it was found that a "bullhead" had been sucked into the aperture tail first, and had completely closed it up. The story sounds fishy, but is vouched for. - Chicago Tribune
