Duel With a Shark.
It seems that a 8ihly named the
"Southern Trader," from l.ivepool,
with a cargo of coal, had Just dis
charged her freight at a port of the
iarbadoes, when the crew who had
been engaged in the dirty ,work, re.
solved upon a bath, and accordingly
ventured into the sea.
The coral shores o1 larbadoes abound
in sharika, and the flrst unite of the ship
who remained on board, espied one of
these monsters mtakiug toward the men
before they had been ten minutes in the
water, and instantly gave the alarm.
The sailors hastened toward the boat.
which the mate had sent to them. and
all succeeded in getting safely on board
excepting one foremost; hand-he was
the last of his companions to reach the
boat. Just as he was about to lay his
hands upon the gun wales the shark
seized him in his capacious jaws and
litterally bit him in two, instantly
swallowing a portion of the body and
the lower limbs.
The upper part of the body was taken
on board, but of course life became ex
The crew in the boat were almost
crazy with excitement and horror.
There was one among them, however,
who said nothing, but gazed first. at the
remembered body and then at the spot
where the shark's black dorsal In
showed above the surface of the water.
It was the chum of the poor victim,
they had been constant friends for
many years, and the bitterness of Ils
feeling made him for the moment liite
In the meantime the insat.lable shark
was swimming hither and thither
through the blood-stained water in
search of the remainder of his prey.
The rest of the crew were only too
thankful to be safe in the boat, but not
so with John IiQdge, the dead man's
chum, who was seen to hasten on board
the ship, where he entered the cook's
gallery and having secured a long
sharp butcher's knife, made his way
back to the boat now along side.
"Look ye, messmates," said he cool
ly. "I'll kill that, devil, or he shall eat
Saying whih lie took the large knife
between his teeth and leaped fearlessly
into the sea. It was all done aso quick
ly that no one could have interfered
had they been so disposed, but all look
ed at each other in silent amazement at,
'Thue moment that the lItrepid sea
uan struck the water, the shark saw
him and made for the spot. Both were
equally eager, the one forl hIs prey, the
other for vengeance. The monster was
soon beside his enemy and quickly
turned half upon his back, after the
manner of his tribe, to seize Ilim la his
terrible jaws. But John Ilodge was
self-possessed, and at that instant dove
beneath the shark, at the same time
thrusting his long knife deep Into his
belly causing the water to be dyed all
about them with his blood. lie man

wounds before lie again eanme to the
surface. The enraged flisl bec'anue con

buuteha0r knife. Th'le shark retired for
a moment. out of' the bloody circle that
no0w surr'ounded thiemu, followed in gal
lant style by the sailor.
Sooni the tIsh turned and camne at
hhn:u again. The men in the boat and
on the 8ship held their very breaths in
the intensit,y of their excitemeant, at tile
strange duel between mana and lish.
Tlhe whole scene thus far had scarcely
o(cupied three minutes of time, and tihe
mnen were too much coinfutsed to at
t.empit to assist thecir dar'ing comrade.
As we have said, the sea-maonster had
turned, and was augaini miaking toward(
t,he sailor', but, the hat ter~ so far f'rom

Catching lons Hunkers.
This fish, although poor eating, on
account of its many bones, Is of great
economic value, because of its use as a
fertilizer for the fields, and also for
the quantity of oil extracted from it. It
is found in immense quantities from
the Carolinas to Maine, and receives a
different name in almost each State. It
varies in length from eight to fourteen
inches, and in weight from ten to twen
ty ounces. Striking the Southern
coast in April, It reaches Montauk in
the beginning of May, and spawns soon
after coming in shore, in this respect
closely res^mbling its cousin, the her
ring. TIes' fish swarm in countless
shoals everywhere on our Atlantic
coast, and fishermen have testified to
having sailed for forty miles in slgnt of
one vast body of menhaden. E0very
bay and river mouth is filled with theu
each summer, and they are captured
with the greatest ease. Swimming at
the surface and exposing above water
the dorsal liII, as does the shark,
the schools are discernible at a great
distance. They are the prey of blue
tish, sharks and other voracious fish, as
well as sea fowl. Many men and ves
iels are engaged In the menhaden fish
ery, and, lin addition to sailing crafts
ieveral steamers are now following this
trade. The tish are dipped out of sea,
loveral barrelasfulI at a time, bya pecu
liarly cornstrueted net, and when land
ed, are boIled in large pots, the oil be
ing extractedi and the residue used as
manure. The oil is largely used by
tanners, as it, fIlls the pores of leather,
neutralizinlt the excess of alkali, and
leavIng the skin pliable and soft. It is
also largely used in the manufacture of
soap, and forms a chea) and excellent
substitute for linseed oil in painting
where coarse work is wanted. It is
used also, we regret to say, in adultor
ting more costly oils. In addition to
its various trade values the menhaden
is used largely as bait, espelally for
eel-pots and blue fish. It is remarka
ble how the seas are stored with food
for man's use, and how constant and
regular the supply is, but there is a
nossibilhty of overdoing the catch, or of
Iriving away by careless and filthy
iabits the su)plie' which nature has
furnished us. The veteran fisherman
iotht Green, recommends highly the
>ronised entforcement by the Canadian
Jovernment, witlin the three-mile
Limit, of a penalty against throwing
Ash garbage overboard. Fish are par
ic,llar. A small portion of decompos
ng matter dropped into an aquarium
vill cause tllei to remove as far as
)ossible from the source of annoyance.
L'Ie loss of our i-shoro fisheries on the

tscrihed to over-lishing and throwing
