two weeks' outing at Enders lake , with
some wonderful stories of the fish
catches at that place. They went
down there with appetites that they
thought could not be appeased. They
thought that they could eat about four
big messes of fish each day for every
day of the two weeks. They kept up
that gait for about four days when the
bones began to stick out all over them.
Then they let up a bit. They finally
got so that one meal a day of fish
would do , and ham and eggs tasted
better. But they continued to fish.
Furse would go down to the lake and
flsh until he had caught fifty or sixty
fine big bass. Then he would carry
them up to the camp and exhibit them ,
and then he would take them back
and dump them into the lake. This
he repeated day by day until even that
sport palled on his amusement bump
and , tired out with the good fishing , ho
came home and gladly took up the
dally grind of the business world.
