the German capital, since as early as

After leaving Philadelphia, Mr. Wat

the technique of all outdoor sports,
but made a specialty of dogs and in
this line he had few peers.
Mr. Watson wrote several books on

known as a skipper alonig the Atlantic

The erew consisted on ten men.
The Captiva presented r.n attractive

A few minor details in the decorat

to Mr. Whitney. This probably will
take place Saturday. The contract price
