Washington Star, lime FIFTY POUND Carl Overton And Jesse Weath- erholt And Cloverport's En thusiastic Fishermen Trying To Land It In The River At The Mouth Of Gochagan Creek. OVER FORTY YEARS OLD. Cloverport's enthusiastic and diligent fishermen are casting their nets in the mouth of Goehagan creek thlsseason.A tremendous Interest has been revived in the old Blue Cat fish that has been seen there for, at least, forty years, John Allen, of Tobinsport, was at this port Saturday. He knows that this giant fish lives in Goehagan and navigates into the Ohio every day for recreation. Ten years ago Mr. Allen and one of his friends caught it on their trot line. At first they thought the line had gotten fastened around a log- until the monsterous fish stretched out by the side of their skift. Mr. Allen said just as they were cooling down their excitement over its appearance, the fish turned over and broke the hook, and line. He said, although he was disappointed in not getting it, he be lieved if they had gotten the fish into their skiit they would have had a dangerous voyage home, as it was so extraordinarily huge and mighty. This fish, says Mr. Allen, has been known and seen by fishermen over forty years. At one time, West Dent, a colored man had large hooks made by a black smith for the especial purpose of trying to capture this whale of Goehagan, but it has been learned that it will not bite at large hooks. Carl Overton and Jesse Weatherholt, are going to fish for it this summer. They landed a 44 pound blue cat on a trot line last week and were sure proud of the catch. Fishing parties are being planned now and they have a goal to work for in trying to get the 130 pound er up the river Acquiring A Motorboat One of the greatest virtues of the motorboat Is that almost anyone can own one.says George Fitch in the July Popular Mechanics Magazine. "A matorboat is not an indication of an ungovernably large income. If a man cannot alTord to buy a mahog. ny-skin-ned racer,with 200 horsepower stuffed Into a narrow thorax, he can pick up a second-hand runabout, with an old four-cylinder engine which counts one and skips two until it has run a few miles and is thoroughly hot. If this Is beyond him, he can pick up a home made boat with two cylinders, a cast iron propeller and a steering wheel made out of an old slat. If even this is too much luxury, he can beg or bor row a rowboat and install It In a mail order engine which costs $49.50, and on which he can lavish just as much care and exertion and ingenuity and hoarse, reverberating profanity as if It had cost $7,000 and were built of aluminum and vanadium steel." Mr. Fitch relates, in humorous vein, some of his own experiences with motorboats,and to Instruct the reader In the guileful art of purchasing one. The article is illustrated. Honors For Timothy Cole. Mr. Timothy Cole, whose wood-engravings have been a feature of The Century Magazine for many years, has just received the degree of Master of Arts from Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pa. In conferring the degree it was said of Mr. Cole: "His work for The Century Magazine has been a real consecration of hlgbj ability for the good of his fellows. He has translated the great masterpieces of the world into the one languaage of black and white, and he has done it with a skill and symathy which cannot be overpraised. The result of his: effort has been an understanding and an appreciation of art values by multitudes of people. There are few academic distinctions that come to workers in such a field as that of Mr. Cole, The educational value of their accomplish ment is often overlooked, Dlckinsoa, College esteems it a great privilege; to recognize Mr, Cole's hlgh-mladd. service as well as his personal worthi ness by conferring upon him a a academic honor," FSH i .X,
