Sea Monsters' Duel to the Death Wit
nessed by Fishermen Off South
Carolina Coast.
A combat between sharks is a rare
Bight, but a battle to the finish was
witnessed In the sea off the South
Carolina coast by MOM fishermen. A
commotion in the water first attract
ed attention to the >]•■■'■ The two
monster fish were attacking each oth
er with the utmost fury ; and as the
struggle took place at the surface of
the water, the anglers had an excel
lent view of it. The sharks fought,
not with their teeth, but with their
long, powerful tails. They dashed fu
riously at each other, darting this way
and that, each lashing at the other
with his tall. At no time did the spec
tators we blood in the water, but the
blows that were struck were evidently
hard enough to do fatal damage, for
after a while one of the combatants
began to show signs of distress. It
gradually weakened and presently
turned sideways on the surface and
then over on Its back. In which po
sition it floated, apparently dead.
The men In the boat were about to
attach a rape to the carcass when
suddenly there was a mighty swirl
In the water, and the other shark
came swiftly to the surface, seized
the defeated fee In his Jaws and
carried him down out of sight.
HORSES BRAVE UNDER FIRE
Animals Displayed Remarkable Cool
ness Even When Subjected to the
Enemy's Heaviest Barrage.
Tlie noble horse Is ii very calm ani
mal under stormy or dangerous cir
cumstances. A 'remarkable example
of the coolness displayed by horses
amid the din of war was shown at
the front in Frame, and the soldiers
who had the opportunity to personally
observe the attitude of the faithful
horse while under shell-fire can realise
what an Indispensable role was played
In the World war by our Rood old do
mestic friends, Joseph R. Schadel
writes in Our Dumb Animals.
While serving on the front In France
I was more than once astonished and
Impressed by the actions of horse*
when the shell- begau to burst iinil the
deadly gns spread Its fatal wings over
the field of battle. One Dlghi near
Chateau-Thierry, a heavy barrage be
pan to fall in our vicinity, and the
horses, which were also open to the
danger, did not scatter or run. In
stead, three of them, following the
example of the soldiers, lay down
promptly and waited until the shelling
was over. Only one of them was killed.
and that poor fellow had remained
standing.
Another time, while moving along
a road that was under enemy observa
tion, the shells started to burst on
both sides of our column. Hut the
good old horses plodded on; the great
est bravery was shown, and. fortun
ately, none was lost. In time, I hope,
there will be more space allotted in
history to the excellent part which
horses played in the late war. Only
the highest praise would be their just
dues.

PUBLICITY AS CRIME CHECK
Sociologist Says the Newspapers Make
Life Hard for Criminals of
Every Description.
"Blame the newspapers for mnkine
the role of the criminal harder today :
than it was twenty or thirty years
ago," said M. C. Elmer of the sociolo
gy department, University of Minneso
ta, according to the Minneapolis News.
"The swindler of h few years lack
had a downy feather bed to li<' on
compared to followers of his footsteps
today," he continued. "In those days,
the same (rang would work a Ikln tame
In one town a week, and then move
to the next stop and do the Bane thing
the following week. Not now, how
ever. The newspaper is the barrier.
If a clever swindle is worked In Mex
ico or Honolulu the news i* on the
wires at once, and the whole world
knows it in a couple of boors, and the
little game is killed."
Contrary to general opinion, crime
is not any greater in proportion to
population today than twenty years
ago, according to Mr. Elmer. It is
1 Just that the number of criminal! hii^
increased with the growth of popula
tion, he said.
Mr. Elmer exploded another popular
fancy when he said that he believe!)
that criminals are not any holder
today than in years past.
"It is the newspapers again," he said
"'The big jobs are given wide publicity
and seem larger in the public mind
than those of the past. But it isn't
so. The James boys, the Youngers,
and the Paltons had just its much
i nerve and put over jobs In their days
just as Iti^r as anything you read about
in the papers toda; "
