to proving fatal. "Whilo Arthur

very nearly drowned. Tho three

tho Bocond boy was attacked in
the same way and immediately
after Arthur Harris was Boizod
around tho right log and arm and
by the face and ear on tho right
side. Tho other boy aftor a hard
struggle of a few seconds got
away, but Harris was dragged
down to tho bottom and hold bo
ncath tho Burfaco for n full half
minuto. Happily he stopped up
on tho body of tho monster and
by almost suporhuman effort toro
Ho was almost ox-
taken from the
As soon as possible ho dressed
hiniBolf and started for town
on the .tram. His face and
oar wero terribly swollen
and .bore tho appoaronce of
having been lashed with a riding
whip. Great livid welts markod
his choek and neck. Upon reack
ingtown ho was taken to tho office
of Dr. Minor and given medical
attention. Ho is fooling all right
again this morning, although tho
wounds on both head, arm and
leg are still painful. Coming
down tho car ho said that tho suf
fering was intense, it having ovory
fooling of a bad burn.
' Such a mishap as that hero re
corded is extremely unusual, if
not altogether unprecedented, at
any of our bathing resorts either
in the harbor or on tho "Waikiki
beach. Tho jagged and high
reefs keep sharks and probably
other marine monsters nway from
tho Waikiki bathing places. It is
likely that this particular big
squid was itself surprised to en
counter human beings, and that
neither it nor any of its relatives
will pay tho shore watbrs a visit
again for many years to come.
