MISCELLANEOUS. S. P. 547. SURF SCENE ON THE PACIFIC. Price, $9.00. Approximate Length, 75 feet. This scene, taken on the Pacific Ocean, shows the angry sea far out toward the horizon, an unbroken expanse of surging billows.

Here is shown a scene on the Columbia River where they are using horses to drag in the heavy seines filled with salmon.
