PRAISES SHARK
AS FOOD FISH
Bureau of Fisheries Says It Has
Been Neglected Because
Worth Is Little Known.
THIS HOW TO PREPARE IT
If It Has a Strong Odor, That Can So
Easily Rcmsdlad—Ssafarlng Folk
Hava Known of Its Valua
As Food.
Washington.—With the more fre
quent appearance of new aea foods In
onr markets, the troth of the old say
ing, There are as good fish In the
sea as have ever been caught,” Is
acquiring a.new application. This Is
especially true of a large family of
Ashes representatives of which occur
on all shores of the sea and In all
dimes—the sharks, strong, active,
gracefully shaped Ashes, varying In
length from a few Inches to fifty feet
or more, which offer a wholesome,
palstable and nutritious food, compar
ing favorably In dietary qualities with
many of the highly priced sea foods.
Many people, Indeed, have recog
nised their value and have utilized
them extensively for food. In the
countries bordering on the Mediter
ranean and In Oreat Britain. Norway
and Sweden they are well known as
valuable and nutritious foods. At
Folkestone, England, the flesh of one
of the small sharks, salted and dried.
Is marketed as “Folkestone beef." Un
til recently their'use as a food In the
United States has been limited prin
cipally to seafaring people In scattered
localities and to the Ash markets of
some of our larger cities, but with
late Interest aroused In new sea foods
they are Andlng a place In our largest
Ash-dlstributlng centers and have ap
peared on the menus of some of the
leading hotels In several cities.
Of Wide Distribution.
As already intimated, sharks are of
■ride distribution, occurring In all
seas from the equator to polar waters,
but In greatest abundance In the
tropics. Those, however, taken In the
cooler waters of the temperate zones
ire among the most desirable species
for food, and It Is from these that the
principal supply Tor the markets of
this country Is obtained.
Like the cod, aqueteague, bine fish
and other well-known Ashes, sharks
feed mainly on Ashes, crabs, mollusks
and other small forms living In the
sea. their method of foraging and cap
ture in many cases being unusual and
Interesting. The thrasher shark uses
Its whip-like tall, which Is as long as
Its body, to splash the water as It
swims round and round a school of
Ash In ever narrowing circles, crowd
ing the Ash closer and closer together
until the moment of attack.
The grayAsb, sand sharks and some
other species work In schools and do
not hesitate to attack the Ash taken
In the fishermen’s nets, the Isrger
forms tesrlng the nets and liberating
the catch.
The economic uses to which these
forms may be put are somewhat
varied. At one time large quantities

Ordinarily the wild buffalo never

The appearance of the new herd dose

No excepttpns have been allowed to

took the typhus fight herd. The
soviet emissaries were stopped at the
railway station and asked for their
Red Cross permits to travel. In an
swer they showed Esthonlan diplo
matic safe-conducts and demanded
that they be passed Immediately. A
Red Cross officer was called. He
waved away the safe-conducts without
ceremony and ordered the diplomats
to report at once for disinfection or
prepare to remain In Narva until the
lifting of the quarantine. Hot words
on the part of the Russians followed,
but the Red Cross official was
adamant.
Finally, breathing threats and pro
tests, the emissaries marched with
their luggage from the station to the
disinfecting post. Lusty hands, little
heedful of the diplomatic sacredness
of their persons, stripped them of their
dothes, scrubbed them ruthlessly, and
rolled them In blankets to await the
disinfection of their garments and
luggage. Not until every scrap of
their belongings, even to diplomatic
documents, was thoroughly delouaed,
were the peace envoys allowed to de
part, every whisker standing on end

Westsm Newspaper Union News Service.
Washington.—Participation by tha
United States in any conference of
representatives of Russia and the si
lled governments looking to a restora
tion of p<8te between Poland and the
soviet governmnt is regarded here as
Improbable, but In the absence of all
but the scnntest of official Informs
tion, most declined to dis
cuss the matter.
President Wilson is understood to
be keeping in close personal touch
with the new European crisis and the
question of American participation in
the-proposed conference will be for
his determination.
The only official information the
State Department has Is that nego
tiations are in progress regarding the
time and place of the conference be
tween the Russian and Polish repre
sentatives. No intimation had come
from the American embassy at. Lon
don or the British foreign office that
Russia has suggested a conference of
allied governments.
London. —George Tchitcherln, Rus
sian minister for foreign affairs, has
addressed n note to the allies and the
United States dealing with alleged
crimes supposed to have been com
mitted by the Poles, for which the
soviet government declares will
hold them responsible.
The- note was sent to Great Britain
at the same time ns the communica
tion which stated that the soviet gov
ernment was prepared to attend a
conference In London on the general
terms connected with peace.
The note declares the workers of
Poland are not held responsible, but
asserts that they have been misled by
the dominant class. The tone of the
note rather suggests that this matter
will be included in the armistice
terms, made with Poland.
Terre Haute, Ind.—Indiana's coal
field is partially paralyzed by an un

drivers following a similar action in
the Illinois field. Fifty mines near
Terre Haute are idle.
Pittsburg, Kan.—Returns from over
the Kansas coal fields were in con
flict. Alexander Howat, president of
the Kapsas miners’ union, said that
half of the district Is on strike, 6,000
miners being out. At operators’ head
quarters it was said that materially
fewer miners than half were idle.
The strike Is a protest against the
deduction of fines from the pay of
miners who refused to work on Sat
urdays.
Howat said that miners who were
working would dean up the mines and
quit work.

WILL HONOR EARLY PRINTER
Anniversary of Birth of Christophe
Plantin to Be Appropriately Com
memorated in August.
The four hundredth anniversary of
the birth of Christophe Plantin, the
noted French printer of the sixteenth
century, will be commemorated with
appropriate ceremonies in Antwerp
during August.- Plantin was a son of
Belgium only through adoption. He
was born somewhere in historic
Toumlne.
It was the peculiar achievement of
Plantin to bring honor and glory to
the printer’s trade in the days of Its
infancy. With a keen appreciation
of the beauties of literature, Plantin
delighted in perfecting his workman
ship In order that these beauties
might be published in the most at
tractive form possible, although his
tools were those of a common work
man. His chef-d’oeuvre was the fa
mous Bibl* a polygotta—published -in
IWHMS73 fin attempt at a scientific
revision of the text of the Old and
New Testaments. It was published in
the Greek, Hebrew, Syrian and Chal
dean languages. As a result of this
monumental work Plantin received
from King Philip of Spain the title
“prototypographus regius,” and the

BOUND TO DELIVER SPEECH
Guest at Banquet Must Have Some,
what Astonished the Rest of
the Gathering.
There was to be a banquet at an
Indianapolis church and one of the
parishioners felt sure that he would
be called on for a speech. Realizing
how poor lie was at impromptu
speeches he accordingly made ready
for this occasion by writing one and
then memorizing it.
The night of the banquet came and
after rehearsing his speech to hla
proud wife the parishioner went to
church, elated over his forethought.
The crowd assembled and gathered
around the table. And then —then the
minister called on the parishioner to
say “grace.’*
For a minute he was appalled—also
his wife. But bravely he rallied and
began to compose a grace. He gave
one sentence, hesitated and then, to
his wife’s horror, plunged into the
middle of his speech. He finished It,
too. Of course every one was amazed,
bis wife most of all, for you see ho
even used his practiced gestures.
Electrical Sterilization.
In a new report on electrical steril
ization, Professor Beattie and Lewis
of Liverpool university, concluded that
milk can be freed from disease germs
without heating above 143 degrees to
147 degrees Fahrenheit. At this low
temperature, the state of the milk la
not altered and its properties seem to
be in no way Impaired, while the elec
tric treatment greatly increases tho
time of keeping. The tests were made
with two types of apparatus, different
degrees of current and severaj qual
ities of milk.
