Among the Australian sports shark
fighting affords much fun, when tho
sharks aro not tooVinierou.s or big. In
that case the fish have all tho fun to
themselves. An Englishman tells of a
shark which kept him and n friend busy
for nearly all day supplying him with
hooks and sinkers, lie would get on
tho lino and permit himself to be drawn
close up to the rock whereon the men
were fishing. Then biting off the'hook,
swim slowly past to and fro with a
sion off the eyes.
After having swallowed several hooks
and sinkers he bit at a large hook chain- :
cil to a stout line, and was drawn half ,
on tho rock. But a wave slewing . him
around and putting the. lino across his
jaw, ho bit it off and escaped.
Even then he returned and carried off ;
two more largo hooks attached to brass
wire. Wheu tho fishermen left the rock,
he was swimming up and down, anxious
for more hooks ttnd sinkers.

them figures in a story which illustrates'.'

while tho other one stood ready to spear
him with the butt-end of a sapling. '
Every now and then tho "tiger" would
rise, open-mouthed, after the foot, and
then the sjiearstnan would hit ldm. Tho
Englishman who tells tho story was
looking on and wasratherdisgustedtkat
there was no sport, as neither party got
Tho strangest thing about this risky
lishing was that the fellow whose naked
foot was the bait, had been lamed by a
tiger-shark. Ho had caught a wabuo
gong, and after killing it proceeded to
insult it Whilo kicking it on the noso,
the jaws openod just iu time to admit
his foot and then snapped shut. The '
man was lamed for life.
