SERPENTS MAY EXIST.



Members of Fish Commission Says

Stories May Be True.



Washington, March 11. – C. H. Townsend,

a member of the United States Fish

Commission, at a lecture last night spoke

at some length of the fabulous sea

Serpents.

In prehistoric times, he said, many sea

monsters existed and, though they are

supposedly extinct, he thinks it is not

unlikely that at great depths some may still

remain.  Occasionally, one might rise to

the surface and the stories of sighted

sea-serpents, may therefore not all be

without foundation in fact.
