A WEEK AT ST. MARTINS.
A Place Where Any One Can
Have a Good Time.
Well, after our gator hunt we
returned to the house and enjoyed
a good square meal, and then, after
a pleasant evening chat, retired
again to our bed.
Friday morning was a beautiful
morning. With the cool breeze
from the gulf blowing briskly, one
could walk out enjoying himself
hugely.
With our fishing tackle and
nlentv of bait we repaired to the
dock and proceeded to get ac-
quainted with the finny tribe.
The ,first fish we hung we
thought was a whale from theway
our pole bent and the line whizzed
through the water like a sky-rocket.
We halloaed and pulled for some
time before we knew what we had
hung. When we got him close to
the bank we saw his mouth was
underneath and he had teeth, and
then we were certain we had a
whale or some other sort of a sea
animal. But we were soon told
it was a shark, and then you can
imagine how we shuddered, not
knowing but that he was a man
eater (tor you know we came from
Missouri, and there are no sharks
there). But we got him ashore all
right, and I tell you we enjoyed
fishing that morning.
In the afternoon we were taken
to the timber and shown a 'gator's
nest, which contained something
over one hundred and fifty eggs,
and while there we thought, now,
if all those eggs should hatch at
once, what would become of us ?
However, we got back to the
house all right, and spent the
evening in -fishing and talking and
boat riding.
Saturday morning we went fish-
incr ncrnin fnr a litttf whilf fnr vmi I
n
arc well aware a newspaper man
never gets tired getting hold of
things that are good to eat.
About 10 o'clock we were taken
by DuPree, one of those good
natured boys who knows how to
entertain people and make them
enjoy themselves, in a skiff and
shown around over the different
islands, introduced to neighbors
and made to enjoy a general good
time. He procured a beautiful
sail boat, "Sharpy," of the Piatt
boys, their own being a little out
of repair, and gave us a delightful
sail around over the bay and up ,
the river to the house. !
After supper we were taken in a
skiff some distance down St. Mar
tin's River, where we surrounded
a school of mullet with a net and j Piant System, is at the Monte
made a splendid haul. This was ; zuma.
our first experience of this sort,
and it was quite a treat.
Sunday was another beautiful
day, and a day on those islands
when neighbors meet and have a
good time.
Mr. Walter Burt and sister, Miss
Beulah,had been escorted fromHo
mosassa to the residence of Mr.
Wheeler in a skiff on Saturday
night by Fred, and were there to
enjoy the day, while Mrs. Briggs
and family, Miss Clara Pratt and
Prof. Walker and wife were sruests
in the evening and spent a few
pleasant hours.
The dinner prepared by Mrs.
Wheeler and her beautiful daugh
ter, Miss Ada, was fit for a queen,
and all ate and were filled.
At three o'clock we all got into
a boat, thirteen in number, and
went to Sunday-school, to learn
something of the one who had
given us strength to enjoy this
life, and the songs that were sung,
the lesson and the talk by the su
perintendent were all very inter
esting. Monday and a portion of Tues
day were spent pleasantly, Masters
Charlie and Oscar making things
pleasant for our little boy, Mrs.
Wheeler ana miss aa making it
pleasant for pur wife, while Mr.
Wheeler, DuPree and Fred kept
us awake and enjoying ourselves.
In fact, our trip, fishing, bathing,
boating, and breathing in the
balmy breezes as they came sweep
ing over the salt water of the gulf,
was one of the most pleasant we
have ever spent.
Any one wanting to take a little
vacation from the worries of busi
ness cannot do better than go to
St. Martin's River.
