FINDS AMBERGRIS WORTH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS A piece of ambergris weighing four pounds, and valued at $70 per ounce, was found Monday by Major Mott of the fishing launch Mabel F. Here is the Major's story: "We were tuna fishing this morning when I saw a whale acting very peculiarly on the surface of the water. I took dowrl the fishing kite and approached the scene of the disturbance. At first I thought that the whale was fighting a battle with another sea monster which was attacking it from underneath. Af- ter the flurries had subsided I saw a substance floating on the water where the whale had sounded. Picking it up, I found it was a piece "of ambergris weighing four pounds. "The price of ambergris is $70 per ounce." So, Major Mott, although he did not land a ttma on July 21, had a "good day !" \ TROOP NO.
