HAD A TURTLE TO TOW HIM.
PUylhlnj tf i Ut Who Llvaai by
' th Sa.-
"Well, ehnJren." aild Uncle Hiram,
"you all' kndvr about pony carts am!
coat 'wasont and -wagont hauled by
docs but did any of you over hear of
a . boy being l ulled around by a biff
"No? I sues not; bur I did once: la
fact 1 knew tbe boy, and the turtle
used o pull bio. around '.) right, only
Instead of pulling him n a wagon, it
ud to pull bim around in a boat.
"ThisJjoy'a bome was on the torea
of a bay. His father win a IsUerman.
wbo owned boats and ncti and hired
fisherman and made a business of Dsn
Ir.g. and so the boy was brought up,
.as you might nay, rn the water. H
had lived and played about it all his
life, and when he got to be about 12
years old his father had made for him
and gare to him a boat for his own
"It was a nice DtUe. light skiff,
about 12 feet long and not drawing
much water, a boat that a boy of his
age wbo waa tflroog and hardy a be
was, could pull, yery handily; and he
used to bare St fun in it.
"The fishermen used to set thejr
nets at dffferent times of year for dif
ferent .nsh. You know, some fish
come on the coast at one season and
some at another; but still at all times
they'd catch some variety of fish, and
sometimes they'd catch fish that they
didn't want at all, like sharks.
"Big sharks would follow the Isbos
Into the nets, to get some to eat, and
tet caught themselves. And then, they
would make a lot of trouble for the
fishermen. They'd tear tbe nets all to
pieces trying to get out, and so let all
the ftshes out; and so the fishermen
would lose all the fishes they'd caugbt
and have to go to the expense ot fixing
tip their nets besides. The fishermen
never like to catch sharks.
"And then sometimes they used to
get turtles In their nets, various kinds
of sea turtles. Including loggerheads
The loggerhead turtles you know,
grow to be very big; some yery big
ones weigh as much as a tKoiuand
l.ounds, tremendous big turtles, and
then they come smaller; but the log
gerhead Is a big turtle anyway, and
tbey used to get some pretty big ones
in their nets.
'And one day when they'd got one
that the boy's father thought would do
be gave it to him for a horse a kind
of a sea horse, wasn't it? for his
. "This loggerhead bad a sbel about
two feet and a half long, and then
Its head and its tall stuck put at the
ends beyond this, so that altogether
It was about three feet and a half long.
It weighed something between ISO and
200 pounds; so you see It was about as
big as a marble-topped table and it
weighed about as much as a man. A
powerful turtle; and it could tow that
"The boy'a father rigged It up for
him all right. He bored a small hole
through the 'back end of the turtle's
upper shell where It was the best place
Tor It, and where It wouldn't hurt the
turtle, and through this hole he drew
one end of a smalt stout line, and when
he'd get It through he made a knot
on that end so the line wouldn't draw
but again through the hole when the
turtle began to pull on it; and then
he put tho turtle tack into the water
and gave the free end of the line, the
felns, as you might call It, to the bo)
in bis boat. And then he says to the
"'Now don't let him tow yoa out to
sea, and when he sounds give him line,
and then let the turtle go. -
"What he meant by 'when ne
sounds' was, when the turtle sounded
the depths of the water; when he went
down to the bottom; for you see the
water In this bay was In some places
as much as twenty-eight feet deep and
If the the boy had only a short line
on the turtle and the turtle had sound
ed in deep water and the boy bad hung
on to the line, the weight ot the turtle
might have upset the boat and
thrown the boy Into the water. Dut the
fr.ther knew the boy and had confi
dence In him and knew ue would un
derstand, and do as he told him:
'Don't let him tow you out to sea and
when he sounds give him line,' a-d
then turned the turtle loose, and the
boy gave him a little slack at first so
as not to bring blm up too suddenly,
anu then he held on gentiy but firmly
and then off they started with the
boy sitting In the boat and the turtle
"And then the turtle took the boy all
round the bay, trying of course, to
get away. That string didn't hurt lilin
but the turtle didn't just like It.. But
It couldn't shake it off, and stf, when
ever It wfnt It toed the boat after It
Tltb the boy In the boat.
"Sometimes the turtle would sounJ
riid then the boy would pay out line.
And after the turtle bad got down to
tbe bottom the boy would let him rest
for a while, and (ben when he nnt.t
Mm to draw the boat again he would
pj;i on the line a little, softly, and the
untie would come tip and start going
attain, drawing the boat around.
"One time the turtle got going as If
he ws going out of the by. and then
tbe boy sot ml? to cut tb Use, but
the turtle got tired after a while and
stopped to rest, floating eq the top of
tbe water. And '.hen ttie boy reached
tbe end of tbe shell where the line
v made fa.-;t to hlra and got hold of
tbe turtle and turned him around In
the water and headed him Inshore and
started him up again. '
'And after that a number of times
tbe boy turned the turtle around like
that when be was going in some direc
tion he dirtu't Taut him to, but he was
always careful not to get near the tur
tle's bead, for the tertle can dart Its
bead out to a considerable distance
abend and' on either side.
"Turtle, have very sharp and pow
erful Jaws and a great loggerhead
could bile a man's hand off, and a tur
tie the sle the boy bad could have bit
ten off blJ finger and I don't know but
It couid his hand. If you ever have a
turtle, as this boy did, to row your
boat, you want to ktep away from its
head, as In fact you do from all turtle's
"Well, this boy didn't have any pan
to, keep the turtle In, and I don't know
as he'd have wanted to keep bim any
way, 'cause his father was liable to
catch him another one any time. So
after he'd beca towed around U he
wanted to that day, he pulled up near
the turtle and cut the line close to the
shell end let him go. That little end
ot the line that was left In the hole in
tbe shell would soon work out and
leave the turtle entirely free.
"And sure enough, that same season
tbe boys father caujht another logger
head that was about tbe right size for
a seahorse to tow the boy's boat, and
he rigged it up In Jus the same way,
and once more the boy wes towed all
around tbe bay. sitting In his boat
with the turtle -pulling him.
"Now. then," raid Undo Hiram,
glancing benevolently around upon the
circle, "there was something different
You've all seen plenty of goat and dog
wagons, but how many of you ever
saw a boy riding In a boat, with a tur
tle pulling him?"
And they all said they had never
even heard of such a thing till their
uncle told them. New York Sun.
Art in Chicago.
It Is estimated that there are now
more than 7.000 art students In Chlja
go. The Art Institute of Chicago In
1901 has enrolled more than 2,500 pu
plls, and in the Academy of Fine Arts
and a dozen leser schools, studios and
private classes there are nearly 5,000
students who are devoting their ef
forts to the pictorial and plastic arts,
No other city In the world haa mi
art muBeum so well attended as that
ot.the Art Institute of Chicago. Al
ready in 1904 more than halt a million
visitors have inspected Its pictures,
sculptures and exhibitions, of curios,
and based upon last year's total of vis
itors nearly a million persons will
have visited its galleries before the
close of this year.
The galleries of the Institute have
teen enriched by donations from pri
vate citizens of Chicago as no other
art Institute in America has bceu n
rlched. There are few notable private
collections In Chicago that can com
