For the  first three   rounds  the fight   was  a disappointment     to  the 5,000 persons  who paid       fanc.\  prices   to  witness Hive  bout.        There  was  scarcely  six hard    blows .struck.  the  men   wrestling     from  one      end  of  the  ring  to the other     with        a  referee  powerless-   to separate them.,  It.   had- been  agreed  that  the  tefen-e  was  not   to  lay  his   hands     on ��������� thc.  inen,      but  simply     warn   them     to  step back  when they   rushed     to      ;i  clinch      Tbe repeated  warnings    hud  no   cnect  on   the   fighter*.,    and    tin-  crowd   hissed,    "roaned,     and     cried  "'fake"  and  "take     them     out        of  the   ring"'     At   the beginning   of the  .ouitli   round the  men began to fip;hi  as   thotieh   iney meant business.

At the  close  of   the  fifih   round   McCovern  went   to his  corner in distress.   -.

While the party were at  the fishery five sulphur bottom  whales wore brought in, tho largest being 95 feet long, from tin-  'huge fi-^h 110 barrels of oil was  taken and Irom tho bend, one ton  of whale bone, from the rest ol  tbe body about li\e tons of bone  of <in inferior grade was taken  out, the bone from the head itlono  was worth more than $'luO, the  oil uud the ��������� balance-of the bone i.-;  worth a large sum of money.

Ninety men are now nt vwork, and  '20 11101 e ore on their way from Victoria.  The Do'-tor, who is n most pleasant personage. to meet, gave iho  Herald representative lhe true ^lory  ubout milking whales, for sit-  inoiiths past stories about a man  having a herd of .sixty domes! i-  tuted whales 111 Newfoundland that  were milked by specially invented machinery, have been going  the 'rounds.      Each    female whalo  giving   a   barrel      of  milk,   rich in  ipialit.i. etc. The story went that  the whales wviv fed ou seaweed  and Ivcaine perfectly tamo. It. war*  'believed by thousands of readers  and Tn-. itismuller has received  hundreds of letters from scientific  men, asking for full particulars,  the richness of the milk, if it contained the. same .nourishment as  cows milk, etc. '.The .whale story  originated in      a      joke. Some  friends   knowing       he      had made  the whale species and their lmbit::  a life study,' jokingly said they believed the public would believe  anything about his knowledge of  whales and sprung this story.  To their astonishment the story v.ns  taken seriously, even by inen nui.  woman of education and wide  world knowledge. It. is of course-  without even tbe slightest foundation   of  truth.
