-BAY CENTER, Wash., Doc. 6.
Your welcome letter has Just been
received. Well, the weather Is the
principle thing down this way this
fall. Evory day is a record Dresner.
Hard to tell what will come next.
In fnct, I am actually ashamed of the
weather. A few days ago I was the
onlv one of the crew that would ven
ture out to pick on the -bed across the
channel and to give you an idea of
the kind of weather stunts wo have
been having will rolnte: this at
ternoon there was a crane setting
on the flats a hundred yards or more
away, and I noticed him making
queer motions and then I observed
what he was up to. The wind was
blowing so hard that he could not
stand on the lop of tho ground, so he
worked one leg and then the other
up and down until his body was
within two or three Inches of the
ground. When he got well "sot"
I mude a sneak to windward and
went down on him dead before It.
Talk about a commotion! He flop
ped his wings, squaked did his best
to get his legs out of the sand, hut
no use, his legs were too deep. Now
Just as I was going to grab him by
the neck ono of those twisters hit
me from behind. I went flat on my
lace, and about tills time Mr. Crane
raised his wings and the twister
caught him and away we went be
fore it. But I noticed he seemed to
be minus his legs and 1 looked and
behold, the wind had pulled him
right off his legs and there they
were sticking In tho sand. I linve
them here now to prove the story.
Another, during the 70 hour gale of
last week one of the Oystervllle
launches went adrift and all there
was left waB the nam 'and the ex
haust hole In the side of the boat.
We have them tied up under tho hill.
