he studied with such diligence that in
1137, at the age of 37. he was elected
abbot. Pope Engenius III., that bril

Ini 1134 he was elected pope against

formal congratulations of Henry II.

The Rural Routes.
The postoffice department has issued
n statement to correct an impression
that prevails, especially in the west,
that many of the rural routes are to
be discontinued. The story was that
all routes that do not handle 3,000
pieces of mail a month ami supply 100
families' will be cut off.
The announcement says it is not
the purpose of the department to dis
turb routes already established, un
less they are manifestly unnecessary.
There are now on file in the. depart
ment petitions for more routes that
will supply more than 100 families
than can be established with the pres
ent appropriation. This being the
case, the department does not feel it
wise, equitable or just to establish a
route supplying less than 100 fami
lies to the exclusion of routes that
will supply more than 10O families,
the greatest good to the greatest
number being the fundamental prin
ciple upon which rural free delivery
is being established.
As long as all of the routes that
are asked for cannot be established
because of the lack of sufficient mon
ey, the routes that will supply the
greater number of families should
certainly have preference.

DAILY SHORT STORY
The Tiger of the Sea.
In the year "1S70 r shipped aboard
the English brig Ruby for a voyage
from London to Ceylon, calling ut the
Island of Mauritius, off the east coast
of Madagascar. From London to the
island not a single shark was sighted.
Thirty miles off thd island, as the voy
age was resumed, a shark. Judged to
be twenty feet long, suddenly appeared
on the port quarter not over tifteen
feet from the side of the vessel.
We tempted him with all kinds of
bait, but he refused everything. First
we gave Lim a piece of pork on n hook.
He paid no attention to it. We chang
ed to beef, then to chicken, but be
would touch neither.
It was noon next day before we tried
the shark again, but we had no better
luck. He simply Ignored the bait. The
men began to whisper about accident
and death, and the captain brought
up a blunderbuss loaded with slugs and
took a fair shot at the fellow. He was
only about h foot below the surface,
and the heavy charge struck him at
the base of the dorsal fin and nearly
tore it away. The shark made a sud
den rush, but only for a few feet. The
smoke had not yet blown away when
he resumed his old position. Ills start
was one of surprise instead of pain.
He had learned caution, however, and
he sank down unlil he bad two feet of
water over 1dm. Some of the men
dropped objects over the Irw with a
great splashing, but the shark paid no
attention to the noise.
For nine long days and nights he
kept the place where we had first seen
him, and during this time we had two
or three squalls and two days of heavy
weather. So long ns a man leaned
over the rail to watch him he kept his
wicked eyes fastened on that man, and
when any one was aloft and laying
out on a yard the brute's Jaws could
be seen working as if he had the taste
of a sailor on his tongue. He might
have followed us to the end of the voy
age but for a curious incident.
On the morning of the ninth day we
approached a large swordflsh sleeping
on the dancing waves. We were with
in a hundred feet of him when the
creaking of the yards or the voices of
the men disturbed him and he came
tearing down on the port side and ran
right over the shark and away out of
sight. If the shark was not struck he
was at least badly frightened, for he
made off and we did not set eyes on
While the American bark Rocket,
from New York to Santos, was lying
becalmed on the equator, a shark twenty-four
feet long suddenly appeared
on her starboard side amidships and
only a few yards away. He lay head
and tall with the ship, and the car
penter got his length to an inch by
measurements along the rail. The
spread of the monster's Jaws was such
that he could easily have taken a Hour
barrel into his mouth. '
There was no shark hook aboard,
but the captain, being willing to divert
the crew, gave them leave to throw
over a lot of iork which had become
unfit for eating. There were four full
barrels of this pork, and It was fed out
piece by piece to that shark till the
last pouni was gone. It was so stated
by officers and men, and there Is no
reason to doubt their veracity.
When the pork was finished, a piece
of beef was thrown over the port rail,
and the shark dived under the ship
and seized it. How much longer he
would have gone on eating no one
could say, as there was no more to
give hini. He seemed to be as raven
ous for the last piece as for the first.
How one shark could hold all that
meat and another go eight day with
out eating a thing Is yet another ques
tion for discussion.
While" off the southeast coast of
Java in the New Bedford whaler
Joshua Lee we one day came upon n
native craft floating on her beam ends.
She had a crew of six men aboard,
but they were frightened and helpless.
The craft had no cargo in her and had
taken considerable water through her
single hatchway, which had been left
We sent a boat and cut away her
masts and righted her, and then a
strange discovery was made. There
was three feet of water In her hold,
and dashing about in the water was a
shark fourteen feet long. He had come
aboard with a sea, and instead of being
left on deck had gone down the hatch
way. The natives abandoned the wreck
for the whaler, and three weeks later
she was drifted ashore on the Sandal
wood island with the shark still alive
and rushing about, although he had
had nothing to eat and the water was
On that same cruise the whaler ran
Into the port of Barung. Java, to make
repairs. Some fishermen had caught
a shark nine feet long In their nets, and
he had been lying on the beach three
hours when I saw him. Some of our
men went to the ship and got a' pork
barrel, knocked out both heads and
slipped the shell over the shark and
drove It down to his bulge. He was
then rolled Into the water, and the tide
floated hini out. In a quarter of an
hour he was swimming about and
headed for the open sea.
Sixteen days later, when 220 miles to
the south, that selfsame shark came
alongside. There could be no doubt of
his identity because he still wore his
wooden Jacket. The barrel had shrunk
to him so tightly that no effort of his
could remove It. It must have bother
ed htm about keeping under water, but
it did not seem to affect him otherwise.
In the course of a year wo heard of
him no less than five times. He went
up as far as the strait of Sunda, came
back to Barung, ran over to the coast
of Australia and when last reported
was to the south of the Coco Islands,
