First Question Put to Fishermen H. L. Plato and Nelson Plpyert -yore Cleveland visitors Tuesday. John Schmauch and G. R. Mitchell returned to Amherat Tueaday morn- Ing after apendlng aeveral daya In the "wilds-- ef Canada on a fishing trip. And from all Indications it waa a real fishing trip although aeveral Amherat bualneaa men are still in doubt sbout It The two noted fishermen blew Into town shortly before neon, all sunburned and rather fatigued, but their face* lighted up when they got out their spoils, or at laaat part of their spoils, and ahowed them around. They opened the hack of the Slwer and took out two largo lunge, each measuring about two foot In length and aeveral ovcralced black baas. They euro were pretty flah, but It waa all spelled when somebody said, "Where SM yeu buy them V "That's juat what I thought yeu guys would aay," aald John. So he wasn't disappointed at all in his conception that there were some who did not believe him. Just then Roy butted in snd told the whols story of how hard they wsrs to catch and how much trouble they had in getting them and alao that they had cought lota more, him of which were twice aa big, but didn't have room to bring them home—anyway, it surs was a nice string of flsh. When questioned further about their other experiences they said that they ware searched sbout ten times before leaving Canada for the states, meaning, of course, thst thsy were ssarched for firearm* and NOTHING else. Soma one tried to take off ths radiator cap but h* waa stopped In the act. Someone elae wanted to look and aas If there ware two c-mp«rt> msnta In ths gasoline tsnk but he, too, wa* unsuccessful. Some fellows sre awful inquiaitive, anyway. Getting back to the "fish" part, it was some trip, only Roy don't know whether hs wants to do it again. Hs saya that It isn't much fun riding up snd down a Isks all morning and all afternoon in ths hot sun, dragging a little pole with aome atring and a hook fastened to it, snd waiting for some poor flsh to con.* and bite IL Of course, John, on the other, hand ia willing to go again tomorrow. It'a great sport If you don't weaken. ..Well, they are back, and have accomplished what they went out to do, and it ia supposed they will go on selling Porda just the same as if they had never caught a Sah, or never went to Canada. ■iiV:i-.lli«i!Wli_PViiV,Wli»W GET A SEASON TICKET j FOR THE CHAUTAUQUA FOR $1.00 One years subscription to the News-Times, plus one dollar ($1), gets one adult Chautauqua season ticket.
