When I returned lo the offlre the agent bad already been Informed of Hooper'a atrnnge dlaappearanre. The route agent waa there making urgent Inquiries, and waa Informed about the package In the aafe. He questioned me about Hooper' demeanor that morning, and 1 told him that I bad noticed nothing unuaual In hi man ner. The nest day the morning paper gave a full account 0f Hooper' tnys terloua dtsjnnpearanc. but not one word about the money. It proved a flrat-rate senssilon, however, without the latter feature For three day the aubjeet waa the theme for goaalp. The company denied that he had taken any money.

It la the wolf of the ocean, nnd two or three killer will attack n iperm whale, and mutilate and kilt the huge alli um I. Mr. lli'Ilnn, In hla nurmtlvo of a whaling vayngo, "Tho Crulio of the Cachalot," describes n light footworn n sperm whole and threo killers which he mw off tho Island of Formosa. A largo bowhond roeo nonr tho ship, who seemed IndlfTeront to hi proxim ity. Three killers worv attacking him. One leaped high In the nlr and de scended uM)u the whale's broad hack with n cmh. Agnln nud npiiln the killer leaped nnd fell, n If lo heat tho whale Into iiibmlMlou by n suoceaslnn i f heavy blows. Tho sea around boiled like a, caldron. The worried whale lifted lu huge head out of the foaming water. On cither lde n killer hung to hla lips, evident ly trying to drag tils mouth open. At last the InresMnt, heavy blows of the leaping kilter oxhausted the great whale, nnd thre three killers, joining forces, dragged open his cavernous mouth, Into which they entered ami devoured his tongue. As soon ns they had finished tliolr feast tboy swam away, loavlng the whale, helpless and dying, n prey to tho whalemen. On another occasion Mr. llullen Haw a combat between n bull sperm whale nnd two klllors. aided by n huge sword fish. The two killers hung on the whale's llonks. trying to divert his nt tonttnn from the awordllsh's attack. This terrlblo foe. elxtoon feet long, launched hlmsoir, like n torpedo, nt the most vulnerable part of the whale, whore the hoart Is enclatod by the neck. The whale, Indifferent to the killers, kept his oyos on tho long fish and received tho shock on his bead, solid as it block of thirty tons of In dlr ;ibbar. Tbe blow glanced, and the awordftsh rolled over the top of tho black head The whale turned rapidly over, settled In tbe water, caught tbe swordfl.h In IU jaws, crunched hlw. and swallowed the two halves. Then reversing his bulk, he brandished his tall aloft, brought It down on one of the killers, and ho became tbe "killed." The sur vivor lied, pursued by an nvnlaitehe of living, furious Hash.
