_MQN'DAY. SEPTEMBER 19, 1932 JILYTHEVILLE, (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Huge Whale to fie Shown Here Thrilling Battle Preceded Capture of 65 - Foot Deep Sea Mammal. Stretching his vast bulk more "'yj^lxff-nveiftol from head to titty-two tons', the, Rigamic whale capliired recently oil the California const svjll arrive here Friday. £(?pt. 23 and will be on exhibition In n succial railroad cir on a siding at Frisco Deool 3 days -Fli.-Sat.-Sua, Sept. 23-24-25. The huge animal, which came near taking ih c lives of his captors before he was conquered, lies under cose. The whale has been perfectly preserved by embalming, a process which required more than 38 barrels of fluid. When the whale was raised from the water, by means of a 90-ton crane, it was found to be such a ' fine specimen of the finback var- i iely that the piescnl transcontinental exhibition tour was decide;! upon. According to "Barnacle Bill" Darnett, a picluresiiue mariner who Is accompanying the whale, thc tour has been marked thus far by. the keenest- interest at every point visited. The mystery that Furrounds the whale's origin and habits, together with the thrilling part the creatures have played in many tales ol Ihe sea, is declared by Bamctt to have been reflected everywhere In an eager desire to actually view one of the great creatures. Barnett himself is contributing largely to the success of thc tow by the unique and exciting quality of the stories he is tellins; Ihe spectators about liis own ad- vf-nturious experiences as a whaler In his youth. This particular whale is credited with having given it s captors one of the hardest and most, dangerous - battles in the histors of whaling on the Pacific Coast, The first shot fired when he was sighted near SanClemente Island. In Southern California struck its mark, but the bomb device in the head of the weapon failed to explode. The whale thereupon started a battle" of several hours, diving repeatedly lo great depths and several times nearly causing 1 the stout harpoon rope to part. Finally he was brought into range again and a second and fata shot was sent home. Use Cotton Middles (or Turnups, Rape and Mustard Says Critz. BV J. E.
