The Kiu.ar of Tory Island is a hc
whishcred, unconveniional individual,
and very prehistoric, .but he has re
sisted the E.'itish Empire successfully
for mar.y years, and his people have a
line disregard for everything English.

The Tory Islanders are chiefly fisher
men. A Sligo steamer calls once a
week to bear away their catch. There
no cats and no rats on Tory Island.
Nor are there any policemen or pawn
shops. Rut the Islanders have n pub
lic house, or hotel.
Accorcing to tradition, the island was
once inhabited by a race of giants.
One of 1 lie giants erected a tower on
the island, which stands to-day in a
fair state of preservation. It is built
of undressed bowlders, with walls four
feet thick at the base.
Tourists seldom visit Tory Island ow
ing to the unconventional actions of the
natives. The latter resent intrusion
from the outside wor.d. A favorite
trick of the fishermen is to run along
side a steamer or sailing vessel and
ask the lookout, to heave them a rope.
When a rope Is thrown the fisherman
hauls in as much of it as he can and
then cuts the line. In this way the
fishing fleet is kept supplied with rope
at a minimum cost. The Tory Island
ers arc evidently a healthy race, for
there is no doctor on the Island.
