WHAT KIND OF STUFF DO THEY DRINK?
Capt. Goldsmith of the Wabash steamer Morley reports that while his vessel was lying under Long Point last Wednesday during the heavy weather, he discovered about 1,000 feet from the vessel what at first appeared to be a portion of the wreck of some vessel, but by examining it with a strong glass he discovered that it had life and was moving up the lake at five miles per hour. Its head, which was about the size of a common barrel, was well raised out of the water. About where it was joined to the body were two arms or wings, which would measure about five feet across. Its tail, or tails, as it appeared to have two, were stirring the water at a great rate. Its whole body was of a terra cotta color. Steward Brown also examined it with a glass and makes a similar statement. Capt. Goldsmith discovered a serpent of the same sort near Fighting Island in June, 1860, when master of the schooner Nevermore. - [Cleveland Herald.
