Coast Guards reported, is missing, but midway in the trunk, bones of what might have been frog-like feet protrude. In the center of the skull is a round hole Old-timers believed the skeleton that of the famous Provlncctown "sea serpent" of 1886 Boatswain Addison Ormsby, commander of the Wood End Coast Guard station, would not subscribe to this theory, but said "We have never seen anything like it before. I don't think it could have been a whale or a blaekflsh The head must have been something like a crocodile's" Captain George Bickers, retired commander of the Coast Guard station, thought it might ha\c been an overgrown conger eel, but no conge" longer than 10 feet ever has been reported here. W C Shroeder, curator of Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology, though he had not seen It, believed It was the skeleton of a blaekflsh The "sea serpent" of 1886 was reported by George Washington Ready, then town crier. "I was walking along the bearch at Herring Cove \\hen I saw a monster 300 feet long, colored like a rainbow, and with sharp, bony scales like the teeth of a mowing machine," Ready sau at the time "It scorched a path over the dunes, cutting down with Its huge tall trees a foot in diameter, and then disappeared in pasture pond. As it slid in, the water gradually receded until the pond was drained completely. Only a great hole remained in the center of the pond bed "I rrn to town to get a 250-fathom sounding line, but I couldn't reach the bottom of the hole That was the last seen of the serpent" Ready, who said his first two Weeps at Verdict Prisoner Asserls He Was Abused By Morganza Officers UNIONTOWk, Jan 20--Rex Perrine, Fnlrchancc, charged with larceny, told the court he had been subjected to considerable abuse at the hands of an officer \\hlle Incarcerated at Morganza for a previous crime 'I never had a chance in that place They began riding me as soon as I got there They accused me oi :aklnK 50 cents Every time I told .hem I didn t do it an officer knocked me down," Perrine told the court en bane when arraigned on a charge o£ larceny of a car belonging to tolman Kushan and stealing the battery as well as several other thelts The court ordered Perrine returned o the county jail pending a trial at the March term oi court Mrs Anna Scjtellaro, holding her three-year-old son, Joseph, broke Into tears when her husband was found guilty of the fatal (tabbing of Harry Barck, 74-j car-old poor- master of Hobokcn, N.
