WHALE CAPTURE
IN TAMPA DAY
Monster of the Deep is Har
pooned and Killed By
Fishermen
The Tampa Times says Whale I
on the stariboard sir reported Chief I
Navigator John Langhoff to John
Langhoff A B from the middle seat
of his dory as she rode the crest of
a mild wave on the calm bosom of
Hilltborough bay a couple of miles
off Palmetto Beach this morning
shortly after 9 Clock
There she blows said the A B
and the dary was soon heading for
shore the captainseaman laying hard
on the oars eager to spread the glad
tidings
He reached the boacli and whis
pered the words to Commc ore Bill
Lynch The word was flashed to
Tampa Esli Knight Arthur Ousca
den Algee King Sam Honaeker W
J Bailey H L Knight Robert Keller
Captain Bacain of the Flaneur John
Langhoff a harpoon and a couple ot
Winchesters snugged aboard with an
abundance of real courage sailed out
with both engines going
They reached the inner bay in
short order and Sighted the whale
disporting himself or herself on the
calm surface of the warm water The
engines were reduced In speed and
the iFlaneur stole silently to the aside
of the leviathan who apparently an
ticipated no danger Captain Bacom
offered the harpoon to the gentlemen
but they all deferred the navigators
superior knowledge of devilfish stin
grays etc and so he stood and waited
his chance
I The first cast of the ipoon struck
i the whale at the base of the dorsal
fin and the hig black fish started for
the bottom of the bay Ht didnt have
far to go as any dredge man will tell
I
you Up it came and then the gen
tlement with the Winchesters Esli
I
end H L Knight got busy and a
plugging match ensued The whale
dove again leaving streaks of blood
behind A second time up spouting
blood and spume and then more lead
Captain Bacom let out and took In
slack with the aid of the other gen
tlemen Soon the lead had effect and
the big fish weakened
It was nearly two hours from the
time the Flaneur draw up alongside
the whale to the landing of the le
viathan at the foot of the dock close
to the Royal theater to which point
it was towed Here the fishermen
not having yard room for the over
grown monster turned it over to
Commodore Lynch
All of the actors and actresses gath
ered around the carcass together with
the entire population of Palmetto
Beach They pronounced it the real
thing but telephoned in to the Times
for the marine reporter to come out
I and tell em what species It was The
imarin reporter soon landed on the
spot and looking wise pronounced it
a ccimmon t black whale of the tropical
species It measures about 2fi feet
Ions and weighs several tons
This is the first whale that has
visited Tampa in the recollection of
the oldest InliatHtanls but whales
have been reported from Tarpon
Springs recently
The Mayor of Berlin
One of the principal requirements of
a mayor In Germany is unqualified hon
esty for In the municipal administra
tion of Germany graft in any form I
would not be tolerated To become the i
moyor of a city like Berlin the ap
plicant must have established his repu
tation for efficiency In governing other
German cities His career is carefully
scrutinized by the members of the
town council who select him for not
only must he be competent and suc
cessfully perform the duties of his high
position but still so young as likely to
remain competent for many years for
a mayor In Prussia Is elected for a
term of twelve years and if not re
elected after that period Is entitled to
n life pension of half the amount of his
salary After a service of six years
his penslpn is onefourth of his salary
and after serving twenty years two
thirds He need not necessarily be a
resident of Berlin at the time of his
appointment fact the mayor Is usu
ally chosen from the residents of other
cities
Children and Candy
Give children plenty of pure sugar
taffy and butter scotch and theyll have
little need of cod liver oil says Dr
Woods Hutchinson In Womans Homo
Companion In short sugar Is after
meat bread and butter easily our
next most Important and necessary
food You can put the matter to a
test very easily Just leave off the 1
pie pudding or other desserts at your
lunch or midday dinner Youll be as
tonished to find how quickly youll
feel empty again and how unfin
ished the meal will seem You cant
get any workingman to accept a din
ner pail without pie in it And hes
absolutely right The only thins that
can take the place of sugar here Is
beer or wine It is a significant fact
that the free lunch counters run In
connection with bars furnish every
I
imaginable thing except sweets Even
the restaurants and lunch grills at
tached to saloons or bars often refuse
to serve desserts of any sort They
know their business The more sugar
and sweets a man takes at a meal the
less alcohol he wants Conversely
nearly every drinking man will tell
you that he has lost his taste for
sweets The more candy a nation con
sumes the less alcohol
