J. H. Sargent returned on Sunday last from a fishing trip up near Drummond. While there he stopped at the Rust-Owen palace lumber camp of the North Wisconsin woods, an old friend of his, W. R. Murphy, chief cook of same. The shanty is located three miles east of Drummond and is 36 x 100, the walls being covered with neat wall paper ornamented thoughout pictures of all kinds and sizes, flowers and everything to make it look attractive. A fine garden is also connected with the place. "Old Hank" performed the astonishing feat of eating 100 speckled trout in 100 consecutive minutes before his appetite allowed him to rest.
