    “Shallow Lake Man Expects Fortune from Fur Freaks”

    Now Has Eight Black and White Mink -- Refuses $5,000 for One

    Shallow Lake, Dec. 10--Percy Noble, Shallow Lake fur rancher, declined to comment on a report that he recently refused $5,000 for eight freak fur-bearing animals developed from the pedigreed mink stock on his farm during the past year.

    “I wouldn’t be surprised if they turned out to be worth considerably more than that.” Noble stated. “They are the only animals of their kind in the world, according to the statements of several noted authorities. No one has seen anything like them and I just don’t care to sell them at any price.”


    “I’m convinced they’re worth a fortune. You won’t see them in coats for awhile, but when you do they’ll be millionaire wraps.”
