WHALE BOAT CATCHES SHARK
Marine Monster, Weighing Approxl
mately Eight Tons, Harpooned
Off Vancouver Coast.
Whilo securing the OCMO lor whales
one of the littlo iteotnefl working
from the Kyucitiot station landed a
thirty foot ?hark.
The "wo'f of the : e t" Is claimed to
be one of the largest ever loon In
northern waters and weighed Spproil
mntely eight tons.
The whaling steamer had been
searching vainly for whnles for sev?
eral dayi and the lookout had grown
tired Of scanning the surface of the
ocean. He was suddenly aroused to
action by observing the dorsal fin of
% monster shark cutting tho water
about lN't> yardl on tho port bow. As
the big shirks yield consiflerable oil, I
the ship's oflJet rs decided to try for
this one in view of the lack of whales.
Running to with!.; thirty yards of
the shark with tho boat, the gunner
fired the harpoon from the gun and
struck the monster at the Brat shot.
After a terrific fight to hold the strug- 1
gling sea animal it was hauled aboard ,
and cut tip. the steamer resuming her
search for the larger mammals.
Officers of the Tees declare that the
shark was the largest they had ever 1
seen. It was of the species common
to the Pacific coast, but not quite so !
far north.?Vancouver Sun.
EVER SEE A STOUT POSTMAN?
In London, for Instance, Carriers
Walk Over Sixteen Miles Carry?
ing Forty Pounds.
Ha9 it ever struck you why a stout
postman is such a rarity? Tho ques?
tion is worth attaution.
A postman who In a busy London
residential district walks from four?
teen to sixteen miles a day, starts out
in the morning with malls weighing
something like eighty pounds. As
his letters end packages are distrib?
uted, the weight of his bag. of course,
grows less, so that the average weight
he carries Jurlng hi* trip is forty
pounds. A pint of water weight a
pound. A 10-quart pail weighs about
twenty pounds, and the average
weight the postman carries Is equal
to two of these. If you want to know
why postmen are thin, try a I'-mile
walk with a 10-quart pail of water in
The drive.* of a brewery wagon, on
the other hand, is usually fat The
reason is that he sits on the sc: t of
his dray most of the day. and often
consumes large quantities of liquid.
Policemen, too. often grow fat
through itandlAf about on their beats.

Gold Prcduftion Nearlng Maximum.
From the present outlook in the
gold mining industry of the world
gold production will have reached its
maximum within the next twelve
months, and it is possible that 1911
will show a positive decrease, saya
H C. Hoover in a recent article. Con?
tinuing with a rorlew of the various'
countries in respect to their future
gold production, Mr. Hoover say^:
