ROCKAWAY BEACH, Aug. 8.-Rock-away
Beach Un't Blow. Not a bit of It.
On the contrary but that's another
jitory. as Kipling says, and relates to
the overflow from Coney Island.
No little Jim Crow watering place
up the Sound can take the shine on
Itockaway when It comes to flsh stories.
If the occasion demands, the residents
of this enterprising burg can produce
half a dozen descendants In a direct
line from the immortal Izaak, the great
est of all fishermen.
After the thrilling experience of Capt.
B. L. Dunbar, of Hammell's Station,
Itockaway Beach, yesterday, the fisher
men of City Island, with their miser
able, shrunken, 160-pound shark, can
hide their diminished heads In shame
nnd sorrow. The City Island folks
have yet to learn that the man who tells
the last flsh story always has the best
of the argument. Capt. Dunbar's shark
weighed 300 elastic pounds that Is,
pounds susceptible of being stretched to
meet all emergencies In the line of com
petition. The captain and his sunburnt partner,
Joe Wild, started out early yesterday
morning In a sloop yacht for Sandy

thlngelse the briny deep might cough
up. The captain and Joe "spliced the
malnbrace" once more for luck and sut
down, after the fashion of fishermen,
to await developments.
Developments, or his twin brother, was
right on hand. There was a tug at the
line that very nearly capstred the yacht.
Capt. Dunbar grabbed It, but his strength
was not equal to the task of pulling It
"Joe," he yelled, "I'm fast to a whale,
Joe jumped to his assistance, and
together they managed after a hard
struggle to bring "the whale" to the
surface. When Capt. Dunbar saw the
shovel snout and long flat head he knew
he had a shark; but for fear of fright
ening his companion he said nothing. I
The llsh made a dash at the boat. The I
captain, with great presence of mind,
drew his Hheath knife and when the
flsh got within reaching distance he
plunged the blade Into the monster's
head, just abaft his left eyebrow. Of
course, this particular shark had an
eyebrows probably two. The flsh was
"horse-de-ka-bah," so Joe Bald, In a few
minutes and was hauled on board.
To make assurance doubly sure, an old
rusty Ashing spear was struck Into his
anatomy from various points of the
compass by Joe and then was made
fat,t to a Hue, thrown overboard and
towed fifteen miles to port.
The Itockaway scales, which weigh
light, registered 300 pounds when the
shark was placed on them.

she gave her head an angry tosei and In

believes she Is simply fighting for her

of most respectable households.
But Mrs. Sallade does not regard the
undertaking as extremely dlfllcult. She
knows as much of law as some lawers,
and this morning announced that the
owners of houses used for Improper pur
poses will be Indicted,
This statement was made wltliouto.ua!

"It simply shows that the proprietor
wus on his guard, and I am surprised
that Cupt. Sehmlttherger should have
expected, If he really did so expect, to
get evidence at that time."
After the Arlington and Airs. Pond's
house are closed, Airs, Sallade expects ,
to turn her attention to three houses
further up the street. When these, are i

Farmer Cunningham and His

WOODBltlDdK, N. J., Aug. 8.-Slmon
Cunningham, an eccentric furmer, bus
of late gained much iiotorlety by Ills
persistent search for a wife. The
climax wus reached last night when
Cunningham got off the 11 o'clock truln
und proudly ambled down the platform
with a bride on his arm. He hail been
marrNd In Perth Amboy a few hours
He supposed that he hud successfully
kept his marriage a seciet, and was dis
agreeably surprNcd when hu found the
fife and drum corpn ut the railroad sta
tion to escort him mid his bride home.
The lite und drum corps Is composed
of the smart young men of Woodbrldge.
They have been keeping tabs on Parmer
Cunningham ever since he went to New
Yotk a short time ago und culled at a
police station und asked the Sergeant
In charge If he could not tell him where
he could find a good wife. The Sergeant
told Cumilnghum that the New York
police did not keep a matrimonial bureau,
and dlscouruged nt his poor luck In New
York, CiinnliiKhuui came back to Jersey
and continued his hunt for a life part
ner. The young men of Woodbrldge got
word of his siiccest, und alsj the fact
that he had been married In Petth Am
boy. As the bridal couple hove in sight a
mighty cheer went up from the drum
corps, which cnused Parmer Cunningham
tu scowl and his bride to blush und look
timid. A little procession then formed,
which attracted great attention nil along
the road to tin; Cunningham homestead.
The life und drum coipn miirched close
ly behind the brldul pair, and the bride
groom was nn Imposing figure In the
procession. He curried n grip and an
umbrella In one bund, und clung sturdily
to his bride with the other.
It was midnight when the Cunningham
farmhouse was reached, and (be neigh
bors did not know what to malic of the
unusual noise at that unseemly hour.
Parmer Cunningham found the front
gale securely fustened with wire. He was
now thoroughly enraged, ami as he
leaped over the fence the members of the
drum corps cheered, discharged firearms,
beat the drums und blew their fires.
In u few minutes Cunningham emerged
rrom the rear of the house with an axe,
with which he soon removed the wire
from the gate und then charged on the
drum corps nnd the crowd, causing them
to scatter In every direction.
Fnrmer Cunningham und his bride then
entered the house nnd tho serenaders
