"We fished mostly In the north prong of Ma - lenlca creek, for it was quite a good sized stream when the country was new and ponds stood full , of water It was a good place to fish. After I was grown up I joined seining parties along the Salamonie river. I remember one day when we started in at Mt Etna and made hauls at different holes until we reached the place about opposite where the flowing well is now located. We had soms Dsn but had not made many good hauls. The other fellows wanted to suit, but I was not quite ready. I believed that one more haul In Borne deep water down this way would be a food one, so I said: 'Boys, let's make one more draw in the next hole below, and I'll agree to take for my share whatever we happen to catch an this one. You " can divide the others among yourselves.'
