SHARKS TAKEN OFF NEW YORK
Their Capture Said to Have Been a
Regular Thing Prior to and
During Year 1815.
A shark nowadays even on the most
exposed beaches of New York and the
metropolitan area is a rarity and a
curiosity, but there was a time when
these fish used to be caught off Cath
arine slip, says the New York Sun.
This was about 1815, when the fishing
smacks and fish cars used to unload
and load off this wharf In the East
river and the dead fish thrown out into
the water used to attract the sharks.
An old man, Sam Way, a porter in
the old Catharine market, earned a
reputation as a master shark catcher.
"Shark around the slip," was the
cry that was raised when a shark was
sighted off the pier and then Sam
would drop his broom and put out his
chain hook and soon would have the
giant fish struggling on the'dock. He
Is said to have hauled In as many as
seven In one day, some of them four
teen feet long.
Devoe, the historian, tells an Inci
dent which is passed on herewith with
"One day Sam hooked a big one and
he climbed Into a skiff which lay tied
to the end of the slip the shark took
to pulling and broke loose the skiff
with Sam in, and away he went down
the river at race-horse speed, nearly
as far as Red Hook before he tired
or Sam could hold him up. He,
however, mastered him and brought
him back, and Sam after that con
cluded not to be run away with again.
So he stuck to the raft or dock when
he fished for 'shark* thereafter."
Snakes Run Prom Garlic.
In traveling through the swamps of
