SLAPS CAPTAIN OUT OF BOAT
Valiant Southampton Veterans Have
Exciting Time When They Go to
Assistance of Brothers Who

Southampton.—For the second time
in two weeks fishermen took to their
buaXs and went out after a whale.
They had him hooked, too, and if
the durn thing hadn’t up with Its tail

Appear It, there might even now be a
dead whale on the beach.
The whale was sighted by Captain
Frank Ji. White, the sea-bitten old
mariner who tends the life saving sta
tion here. .When he first saw the
whale it was about two miles off shore
and moving- out to sea with the Cooper
brothers from Water Mill.
As a matter of fact the Cooper
brothers had caught the whale. The
only trouble was that, liaving caught
it, they didn't know what to do with
it.
<lt was some time earlier in the day
that the i Cooper brothers had seen the
whale and started out In their little
motor boat to capture IL They had
with them a lance bomb gun, an in
strument highly recommended for
whale hunting. This gun U supposed

by exploiting n charge Inside it and
thereupon rendering it more or tees
hors de combat.

So the Cooper brothers went after
•the whale and had the good fortune
to die .in excellent firing position M a
moment when it saw fit to cone to
the surface to blow' the w-ater out of 1
Its nose.
“Tluir she blows I” yelled ii*e Cooper
brothers, who hud taken a correspond

bang! off went the lance bomb gun.
The lance struck the whale squarely

The farmer waited sadly for the

Nelson, Can. —Two trappers arriv

specific--have brought In a fine sample
of ore showing visible coarse gold ob

state the snow fell too early for them

waited expectantly for the dull ex
plosion which would indicate to theui
that their quarry was about to roll
over and ask to be taken home.
No such explosion happened. The
fishermen waited and waited. Ail in a
wink the whale started for somewhere.
And the Cooper brothers, having
lodged their harpoon securely' in the
whale, found themselves accompany

They tried reversing the engine In
the hope that by so doing they might

Old-time prospectors believe It must
be the vein discovered by two pros
pectors many years ago round Ku>»-
kanook way, whose very names other
than sobriquets are forgotten but It
is recalled that they took $12,000 out
of their claim in two months, and "did
it In" riotously. One of them was
killed In a gamblers’ quarrel at Kus
kanook. The other stole an Indian’s
squaw in the Crow’s Nest and fell by
right of vengeance to the red man’s
rifle. Tom Proctor, after whom the
town of Proctor Is aamed, was to have
been his partner, but himself died be
fore a deal was struck. So the whole
transaction was blotted out, and even
the source of the gold faded Into the
land of legends.
Many prospectors have searched for
scene the whale had its mind on some
thing other than additional whale hun
ters, so they were able to get up close
to it. They even circled around once,
looking for a soft spot for the lance
they intended to toss into it.
Then steadying himself in the bow
of the boat, Cap’n Edwards rose to the
best of his sixty-five years of ability
and stood posed with a iong lance in
his hand ready to end everything.
Just at this moment, however, the
whale came out of its reverie and
smacked the bow of the boat a gentle
tap with its tail. Cap’u Edwards be
ing in the bow of the boat he wns
next seen struggling tn the water and
yelling for some one to take him out.
The Cooper brothers made use •of !
the momentary resjiite to loosen their
harpoon line. And the whale went on
Its way. The whalers then devoted
their attention to rescuing Cap’n Ed
wards, and io expressing in broad
terms their desire for vengeance.

KEEP AWAY FROM THE ORIENT
Ex-Sarvice Men Are Warned That

Are Employed.
Whipple S. Hall, who traveled 10,-
000 miles to represent the department
of the Philippines at the national con

warns all ex-service men to keep away
from the Orient unless they have
enough money to taring them buck
beme again.
Discharged veterans of the Siberian
faont, many accompanied by Russian
wives as destitute as their husbands,
worked their way to the Islands as
merchant sailors and tare now in the
hands of the Legion and the auxiliary.
Many of them, penniless, worked their
way down through China in the belief
that the Orient blossomed with good
jobs. Virtually all manual labor and

Poor Man's Pride.
So many men to whom the East

expressed a preference for a certain
lodging house that be wondered what
instituted Its particular attraction.
“It makes us feel self-respecting,"
said the men, when questioned.
So far as the mission worker could
we, it was the typical cheap lodging
house, whose inducements to self-re
spect were not discernible to the or
dinary eye. So he interviewed the
manager.
“That’s easy,” replied the latter and
pointed to a sign above the desk:
