City and General. [excerpt]
A Pine River correspondent of the Dauphin Press writes:
For the second time within a month a sea serpent has been seen by fishermen on Lake Winnipegosis. It is described as about a foot in diameter and from 20 to 25 feet in length. It skims along with its head about two feet above water and frequently disappears under the surface for several seconds at a time. The strange creature has been observed with 300 yards of the shore, and the [Natives] are terror-stricken as a marine monster of similar appearance was seen on the lake several years ago.
