The two fishermen, in 22-foot skiffs, turned to their crew men and asked whether they had better take chances with the supposed shark. In the meantime Osborne cried but that the shark was breaking I HARRISBURG TEEEGRSIPH through his net, and begged assist ance. Immediately the other two skiffs were brought up and the nets sent over the sides. Gaff hooks and shark knives were brought quickly into play, but a sudden leap of the sea monster re vealed that, instead of a supposed shark, a horse mackerel was their prey.

But the swiftly flowing tide was too much for them, and the big fellow broke through the heavy nets. As he was about to escape, having ripped the nets beyond repair, An derson hurled his steel harpoon in to the fish's side. The mackerel immediately went to the bottom, rested a few minutes, then dashed to sea for more than nine miles. Wardell and Osborne tried to hook on and take up the trail with Anderson, but their skiffs had been damaged when the big fellow's tail ripped off part of their sides. $1.41 Anniversary Specials Children's $2.00 Black Kidskin Button Shoes, with patent leather tips, broad toes, spring heels.
