MTOIIIIAHT. 1 Kit Clarke, noted angler, who has fished with l'rceldetits, su j parti joung nticl feeling nbout 40 scars olil. Invited , a Run reporter j'estcrday to accompany i him on one of IiIh dully wnlks. J "Meet me," said tho youtlifut angler, "at the Hrooklyn Public. Library. I.ln-1 den nvemin liraneli, nt 2 o'clock, nmt If you arrive Hist gel a liook iinil learn something about fishing ; If I nrrlvc first I'll get a bonk and learn something bout fishing, too." 1 Mr. Clarke lived In the Klalbitsh nee tlon of llrooklyn, where an a young man he hot rabbits. For yearn ho ban spent I three months of tho twelve In the out of ' doors, ha made It a practice of walking . dally, and at reaching the four score i mile pout be 1 merely pleasantly fatigued after a two, three, four or flel mile walk fin bin Inclination leads blm. Ilecenlly be walked fifteen miles In a ' day. ' The walk he. liken bext, because of j iti Interesting associations, Ik from Mill I Creek, Klatbutdi, over to Kort Hamilton, five miles from where he gets off the Klatbush avenuo car line. No one who seea the straight tlguie frequently on Clarendon road, Kings Highway or on the llergen Heach or Cannrsle road would think of calling Mr. Clarke old. He enjoys smoking, and casually re marked In reply to n query If he had a certain limit that he smoked usually from twelve to fifteen cigars a day. Yet he la no crank on health and has no fads. He says the natural condition of man Is to be In robust health. It Is un- natural to be sick, "and the man who dies before he Is 70," he adds, "kills himself." Mr. Clarke ls a just a plain, common aense man who keeps abreast of what Is going on In the big world, nshes a little, I plays a game of draw poker occasion-' ally and reads much, books, magazines and newspaers. In fact, although he owns an early and many other editions of liaak Walton and has a roomful of hooks on angling, one of his pet hobbles Is to haunt old book stores and pick up , books on angling that he cares for. , Mkes to Write for "The Son," To recall the names of fishermen lie has fished with Is to call the roll of fa mous angle of the other days, only one of whom Is now living. Charles Hal lock, founder of Forest ami stream, now living In Washington, D. C. He fished with (.rover Cleveland many a tlm n Iluzzards Hay. nnd among, his other angling Intimates wire Thud dens Norrls, Seth flreen. Fred Mather. William C Harris, (ieorge W. Sear ("Nessmuk"). Alvah Dunning, Charles P. Murphy (not of Fourteenth street, but tho maker of the first splp bamboo rod), Amos J. dimming, Wallaco llu gene Blackford. Hashford Dean and others, , Some of these anglers left books fori the present generation to enjoy. Mr. Clarke himself Is the author of two, The Practical AngUr" nnd "Where the Trout Hide." One of them he wrote be cause he h id to stay Indoors one Janu ary recovering from pneunionlt'. He Is averse to writing any more bonks, al- though he litis serapbooks tilled with his Writings.

Mr. Clarke liken weakllshlng In Flat luiids Hay because It is near his home nnd he can make a day's trip out of It, Willi Uiuls Ithead, artist and author, writer of half a ilnen bonks, including "Amor nn Trout Stream Insects," "The Hook T Fish mid Fishing," ho goes In ronson to catch n few fish and make a day of it. Incidentally that brings up Mill I'ond, Flatl.imls. lying bc'ween the Sheipshead Hay .Speedway and the old town of Flat binds. This body of water looks like a beautiful Inland bike. Its sloping sandy shores being as clean as when the llrlt Ish In August, Kit!, crossed from Stnten Inland to (Sravosend and moved acros Klatlunds to Finthush nnd compelled Gen. Washington'!! troops to relie.it, a number of skirmishes, taking place across the land where Mr. Clarke led Tint Sun reporter yesterday. Mill I'ond washes the shores of Will turn C. Whitney's old Sheepshead Hay estate that Included the famous Shccps bead Hay racetrack and .Inlm l.ott's farm. When the Hrltlsh arrived at Flat lands they built a mill to grind their Hour, which Is still standing to-day pie. aerved by the Whitney estate. This mill Is so hltunted that the water-power droe the wheels both on the finod tbie nnd nn tho ebb, for the water una dammed, per milting Its use an needed, Thousands of weaktlxh ami striped huss still come Into theso waters, which are really a fisherman's paradise. Tills preserve Is not fished now. except by Mr. Clarke, a vrlvilegc be has enjoyed for more than a iiurtir of a century. It might hae betn open to anglers t'Mlay If the fishermen themselves hail not abused tho privilege. At one time anglers were so thick on tho long bridge across the Mill i'ond that they stood shoulder to shoulder on both sides and then overflowed thu banks- on Whltnej's place and on l.ott's. These fishermen carried their lunch eons and strewed papeis and bottles over the front lawns. They withdrew the privilege For ears and yenrs night nnd day watchmen have been employed to see that anglers do not angle there, Everywhere are signs, "Fishing I'rn lilblted." To give added authority, both Whitney nnd l.ott hail an ordinance passed ful bidding fishing. "Hy Older of the Horough 1'iesldent." Mr. Clailio angles fm weakfish with a four oiime rod and kills his llh, too. What a splendid fishing gitniml the Mill I'ond Is may be gathered fioin Mr. Claike's i-ominetit thai in season "there aru enough weaklMi In Hie pnm! m fied half uf Oren'er Sew Voik."

This 355 poutrl awnrrifHi the gatnest flh fouiul In this habitat of game flah was only beaten by llts.'o II. Johnstone's fish, ecven pounds heavier. This year Mr. lt.iscl.cn heaviest snordtlsh weighed 3t'i pounds, which won third prize for the luivret tlsh of the season, Du.vtln I'.irtiutn edging hint nut of second place with n swordllsli of 322 pounds, Mr. Hoschen brought tn gaff thin sea son eeven swonlflsh weighing 230, 2t'.i. 2fi3, 272. 271. 2Sn ami 316 pounds, lie tlshes exclusively for swordflsh. or broad bills, ns they tire termed lit Cutnlllia. Previously to Mr. Ho.s.'heti's caiiture of swordflsh on rod nml reel the spearflsh was classified as fwordflsh. The dis tinction has now been nindc clear. Thcte Is only one true swordflsh, the gladlus. Just how the spearflsh could be colled a swordllsh l difficult to answer because the llsh life quite different. The bill of the bro.nlblll swoirlfU.lt Is so broad that It Is known as the bro.ulblll. It Is 3'j feet long when the species in irnwn nnd Is tlat ami wide, and nt the base has a width of from t to 7 Inches, terml patlng at a point : n)so the meat I." en tirely different. The s.iearllsh, on the contrnrj'. has a round spear about l'j Inches thick, H Inches long and looks exactlv like the sailor's nmrllnsplke, from which It re ceives 'Its name The swordflsh Is one of the most diffi cult to take on rod and reel. It uses Its MW-ord. three and a lull' feet long, to kill nther fishes like the albacore, bar racuda, sk.pjacl: and small tuna. All these llsh are used for bilt for the vnr,dflsh, Including the red grouper, or rock end. Sometimes the dainty little smelt. s Inches long. s preferred. Sometimes Mr. Hnsehen angles for swordflsh with a twenty-live pound alba core for bait. ( nprlelons n Human Itelna'. Swordfl'h are like human belng 'n their caprlciouness and In their appetite. Sometimes when their stomachs un filled nnlhlng will tempt them but a tun smelt. Just as a man or woman might only be tempted at the end of a meal with a demi-tasse. Swordfish are whimsical and freakish not only In their appetites, but they have as many moods as a big trout that will turn with disdain and sl.rp Its tall at a fly that the angler fels sure will bo tempting. This jear Mr. Hoscben caught s,.ven of the seventeen swordllsh taken, and unilountedly lUl'l will gn down In the angling history of the Chan nel Islands ns the b.g swonllish jear. for the swordflsh, like other tlshes, will be plentiful one jear anil practleallv absent the next. Iliindie.ls were seen this season, vet seventeen Is it large number for those taken by .muling. Hlg sw-nrrtfleh only interest Mr. t'.nschen That is the reason why he lias no photographs .if his big llsh this jcai none of them was a recrd breaker all of them weie below the weight of the previous tecord tlsh of tho club, his 3.'..". pounder .Tl -y were merely brought In ami weighed on the Tuna Club's scales.

Mr. Itnschcn fought the fish ail d.iv long: Hi" hours lengthened Into night, and the trade winds bad blown up Into a small stmin. The tlsh had fought for a distance nf tweiilj-slx miles when it rolled on the leader under the ho it Just as the boatman pi actu ally had the tlsh In li's hands. Thus Mr. ISoschen Inst it and at the Fhtne time prnbably lost tne title to the lecoid llsh of Aineri.ii, for If the llsh had gone to 7in pounds I inline it would have beaten the iiconl llsh on rod and reel. . D. Mitchell's tuna, taken In Nova Scotia viateis, weighing Tin pounds. Incidentally, both men are waini Irlemls Another tlsh fougli Mr. Ho'chen for seven hours, another four hours and a half ami several for four hours.
