St. Louis Sea Serpent

ST. LOUIS SEES A SEA SERPENT


St. Louis at last has a sea serpent story!

It - the serpent - made its appearance in

the river des Peres, near Franklin bridge

Forest Park.


The ugly head appeared suddenly above

the peaceful and conventionel stream

which has boasted nothing more vicious or

terrible than crawfish.


When the witnesses had recovered from

their fright they pelted the head with stones

and sticks. It winked its eye stoically

not to say philosophically, and calmly

ducked beneath the water and was seen

no more.



Some there were prosaic enough to say

it was a crocodile or alligator but others

insisted it was a really, truly seashore,

summer resort sea serpent.



Anyhow, an alligator or a crocodile has

as little business in the River des Peres

as a sea serpent.—St. Louis Republic.
