Hans PARKER, James CHRISTOPHERSON, Loren GREGG and James BELLOWS returned Monday afternoon from a week's fishing trip on the Mississippi, near Lansing, where they had a splendid time and found fishing at its best and no mosquitos on tap to bite the nightmare. They say they behaved real nicely during their absence, because a German minister and two sons were camped on the same island with them. It was the first time the boys were ever in camp with a preacher and they had to resort to various schemes to keep the minister from hearing the flow of oratory when a ten pounder would slip off the hook and get back in the creek. Whenever an accident of that kind happened to PARKER he would have BELLOWS duck him under water, while every time GREGG lost one Hans would hammer on a tin pan for half an hour to call the fish back again.
