INTERESTING LOCAL ITEMS.
There is consternation in South Blairsville among the employees of the
Columbia Plate Glass Company over a monster believed to be in the swamp
north of the factory. Many stories are being told about him. Those who
seem to have seen the monster say he is fifteen feet long, six inches in
diameter in the center with a broad flat head and horns nearly a foot long.
The noise of his hissing “sounds like a locomotive blowing off steam.”
Thanks to Jerome Clark.
