The foot of a white man with flesh
and skin intact, and the pelvis and
right femur, bared of flesh nod banging
together by the tougher ligaments,
compose the horrifying tight that was
disclosed to a number of South Sea
Islanders on the government merva
tion as they cut open the billy of a
fourteen foot shark early thli morn
ing. The first Impulse was to throw the
monster of the sea and the contents of
Its stomach Into the cea en account of
the bad luck such a thing Is believed to
bring, but Just at the time this was de
cided on, a native, John Pool by name,
happened to be walking nlong the none
wall In the lclnlty of the South Sea
Islanders. He Immediately tuggcstcJ
noticing police headquarters and his
counsel .prevailed. As tocn os It was

Captain Parker left the officer to guard

a little later with Special VIda and I)i

were viewed anl then th telly cl the
shark was again arch'd lor toine
thtng that might lead to the Identifica
tion of the unfortunate man wbo,e
body had been tjrn ntunler by the
ravenous monsters of the deep. The
South Sea Islanders searched well, but
nothing could be found.
J. J. McDonald, who lives next to the
name of the late Emil Uhlbrecht
drowned at Makapu Point. expieteed It
as his opinion that whnt was found In
the shark's belly was undoubtedly till
that would ever be teen cl the body of
the unfortunate man. He Ltatcd lur

lingering hope that her hutbund might

John Klnlpekl, th South Sea Island
fisherman who caught the tliaik. tells
.., w.m out ln my cancc taily ,agt
eu.nng the ,ntfntloa u LaMiU,s
I a shark, if p-jBslble. I rowed to a posl
I tion ln the channel, midway betwein
the lighthouse and the rar buoy. My
hook was fisuned to a (.tout line
wound round with wire ot the placo
where a shark might easily me Its
"It was! at about 11 o'tlock that I
felt the line go through my fingers
with lightning rapidity. Foitunately
I had brought along rnoug.. nd I soon
found that the sham was weakening.
It was herd work for one man but, In
nn hour's time, during which my canoo
was pulled about In nil directions, t
found that the fish woe almott ex
hausted. A little while longer and I
had a huge shark blde my canoe.
The death blow was son delivered and
I towed my prize nthore.
"Early this morning we rut open
the shark and found what you havo
already seen. Together with It wcro
several ducks' heads. Of tourse we
could not eat the monster afUr that."
'I had n very narrow escapt last
night. vl wiy half asleep whin the
shark took the bait. The line was at
tached to th eprow of the hoji nnd
when the shirk pulled, the canoe went
under. It was with the greatoi. dllll

Tho shark Ic what the natives knor
as "mano I-a, the common species,
nnd not the regular man eating shark
known ns "Nluhl." The supposition Is
that when the body of Uhlbrecht came
to the surface. It was set upon by a
number of tliarks and torn to pieces.
1 his seemB well proven by tho fact that
the shark had only n part of the body
In Its belly. Its mouth was fully rgo
enough to take In, without tho least
trouble, tho whole body ot a large man.
It seems strange that the foot was

bared ot flesh and the bones partly dis
integrated by the pioccsscs of diges
tion, but this may be accounted for
If It Is supposed that tho sharks In
their fight oer the body, tore tho flesh
from the legs and hips.
Tho foot wns pulled off at the ankle.
All except tho toes wcro swollen. Theso
members Wtjro remarkably well pre
served nnd, the Identity of tho person
to whom they once belonged, might
easily be solved by one of his family
particularly his wife. Thero wcro Jag
ged cuts beneath, nnd on the side of Mid
foot which might hnvo been caused by
the sharp coral that Uhlbrecht traveled
over Just before he met with bis ter
rible fate Sunday, but the general
opinion Is that the cuts were mado by
the teeth, of tho shark.
When Uhlbrecht went Into tho water
he had nothing on his body but a shirt
and his shoes. Not even n part of theso
articles were found ln the belly of the
shark. They must have been torn oft
In tho fight for the body.
There Is no doubt whatever that tho
remains found were those ot n whlto
man and tho only white man who has
found death In tho sea since Saturday
was Emll Uhlbrecht.
There has been In tense excitement
In town nil day over the discovery ot
parts ot a human body In a shark and
thousands hnvo visited tho place whero
the monster wns cut open.
loiter Mrs Uhlbrecht called at the
police station nnd asked to sec th ie
mains of the body that wns fauideln
tho shark. She was Buffering Intensely
but kept up bravely. Sho ImlsttM on
seeing tho remains, Haying thai It not
allowed tn do so, her doubt i to her
husband's denth would ma.f her In
sane. Deputy Sheriff Ch'l'lngworth
tried his best to dissuade her frn'ii li!
purposo, but she remained firm.
She told the Deputy Sheriff that on
the Inside of the great toe ot tii 1 right
foot wns an Ingrown toenail over which
the flesh had grown nnil tna"'lln bard
viud skin had been pared m..iy Mr
Chllllngworth went below nn! found
just whnt the poor woman nil s.il.1
Upon hearing this Mrs. Uhlbrccrt
said: "Then, I must sec It. I will not
bo able to live If I do not."
Sheriff Drown tried to make Mrs.
Uhlbrecht ehniige her mind but she
would not nnd she was finally taken
below and allowed to see onl the foot.
With n gasp sho cried: "It Is ho, my
poor Ilmll!" She did not break down
but her sobs were more than the
strong men about her could bear and
sho was tenderly conducted above
again. Henihlng tho Deputy Sheriff's
room sh esald: "I have done m dutp
to my poor DmII. Now there are only
tho threo children nnd mjself left. Oh,
do let mo think! Let me think!"
After n lltlo tho poor distracted wo
man became calmer and announced her
