A Japanoso Yarn,'
Fact and fancy meet each other bo
nearly in stories told of the octopus
that people who read them nrc at
one time .inclined to believe even
Victor Hugo, and other times to
disbelieve even the naturalists. Both
are interesting, however, and any
person who una had ttie privilege 01
seeing a devil fish, especially if the
one. Been happens to be a large speci
men, caii easily 'perceivo what excel
lent material it affords for a wonder
ful tale. The story, as given below,
was communicated to the "Toklo
Times" by a correspondent to whom
it was given us a specimen of En.li h
composition, by u Japanese scholar
who was a caudidate for the portion
"The author of ' Shuyukidon,'
who lived some sixty years ago, was
once travelling in Mustu, one of the
northern provinces. Walking one
day near the sen beach be heard the
bellow of a bull, and went in the
direction of the noise. He was then
witness of an extraordinary combat
between some cuttlefish and a bull.
An , enormous poulpc, witli bright
purple eyes, and tentacles six feet
lting, imd attacked the quadruped.
Throwing its arms around the body,
the monster tried to make for the
water with its captive. Meanwhile
other octdpi, in large numbers and
of great size, swarmed ou to the
shore which seemed to be alive with
their big, rouud heads. Some of
them assisting their comrade, soon
like him attacked the bull, dragging
it down to the sea. Their quarry,
however, made a brave resistance,
and succeeded in goring its first foe
in the head and belly, and shaking
itself free from its embrace. Before
it could escape, however, it was
firmly held by a still larger monster,
while others took solicitous care of
the wounded one. The unfortunate
beast's bellowing attracted a crowd
of fishermen to the spot. One of
the tcesc, stronger und braver than
his fellows, his limbs swathed in
straw bandages, and a sharp knife
in his hand, boldly rushed to the
rescue of the bull, und cut through
the tehaclea which enclosed it.
Other poulpc then attacked the
fisher, to whose aid his fellows
hastened, and a fierce fight ensued
between men and monsters, in which
the former were victorious, many of
the squids being, killed,' while the
rest escaped into the water.
"Two of the tentacles, wound
round. the bull were so heavy that
one man alone could not currythem.
One was twelve and tlje. other six
feet long; the larger --of ilie-Hwo
were subsequently boiled in sections
at different timesiu abig kettle.
Home years previous to this t battle
cattle had disappeared in a mysteri
ous way from the same shore. The
fight between the cephalopoda and
thp bull enlightened the proprietors
aHjtotljecanHoof.thcifoss," ' ,.
