A "Fish Story"
By CLARISSA MACKIE X

He bent to the otirn nnd pulled with
long, even Ktroken, every exhalation ol
his leei) breaths being marke 1 by n
little puff of blue hiiioUc. .suddenly he
looked tip nt me with twinkling eye
and Hpoke between Ills clinched teeth
"I'll bet I know what you're thinking
about, Miss Tellium," ho declared.
"Well?" I liiqulied Hkeptlcallj.
"You "waH comparing me to a pulling
donkey engine, eh?" he grinned.
I blushed and evaded the accusation
"You're not so very little, Captnln liar
nalms," I wild hastily.
"IIo, ho, ho!" ho laughed down deep
In his throat, and 1 realized that oiuc
inoro had tho captain exercised his al
most uncanny powers of telepathy.
"You shall toll mc a good story In re
turn for that, Captain Marimbas," I
said as ho brought tho boat skillfully
around to the most advantageous spot
In tho fishing ground.
"I got to think up one, then," snld he.
plumping tho anchor overboard ami
sliding his oars along tho thwarts. Illg
as ho whs, tho old captain stepped
around tho small craft as agilely as
ono of tho cats that Infested his cabin
on tho beach.
As ho arranged tho lines and baited
tho hooks I looked contentedly around
nt tho encircling bluffs, wooded to their
summits and faced with heavy yollow
sand near the pebbly beach.
"Heady!" called tho captnln lustily,
nnd I reached forward nnd took the
baited lino from his hand and tossed It
overboard. All around us were anchor

called a neighboring fisherman.
"Want any help?" sung out another.
"Uelay therol" retorted tho captain,
his grin changing to a frown as ho
yanked Into view a largo skate, which,
at tho moment of landing, snapped the
lino and disappeared beneath tho tiou
An echoing laugh ran around at the
captnln's expense, and his hearty "Ho,
ho, ho!" was tho loudest of all. While
ho prepared another lino I felt a nib
ble at my own and pulled In a wrig
gling littlo blue, which tho captain
"This Is a good tlmo to begin the
story," 1 insinuated whon wo were
comfortably settled onco more.
"Lommo see," ho mused, pushing tho
straw hat back from his head and
skillfully rulllllng his plpo with ono
hand. "Somothlng about that thcro
skatollsh I Just caught makes mo
think of Ananias Sllno's whale."
"I'm rather sorry It's an Ailanias
"Why?" Again his eyes twinkled
Ho laughed heartily. "That's an In
sinuation against Ananias Sllno, whose
nnmo Is against hint and"
"Ho certainly lives up to It, cap
"IIo, hoi Of courso 1'vo described
Ananias Slliiu to you before, and you
know ho was littlo and mean looking,
with pop eyes and n light bald head.
I mean his hair was Hghfcolor, what
thoro was of It, and, como to think of
It, It wasn't overloaded with common
sense, and ho had a most murderous
smllo and a hand that was cold and
damp llko u dead fish.
"When ho was my ilrst mato aboard
tho old Indus ho used to sit aft with
mo and toll stories, tho greatest yarns
I over did hear. I never met n man
who had so many wonderful adven
tures na did Anuulos Sllno and could
toll 'em so they sounded inoro llko
truth than fiction, cither. Well, one
night when wo was homeward bound
from Luzon wo sat out under tho
southern cross and watched tho glim
mering phosphorescent waves, and as
n littlo spicy breeze camo along on Its
way from some little south Pacific
island Ananias folded his arms and
tilted back against tho rail.
"Says ho: 'This reminds mo of the
tlmo I wns wrecked hereabouts. Want
to hear about It?'
"'Yes,' snys I. And so ho begins.
1 " 'It was ou my first voyage to sea,
nnd I Wfs a youtig fellow and every
thing wns now to mo. Wo was on
our way to China whon the ship got
a firo nnd nil hands escaped In the
boats, ull except mo. I was'
" 'I'll hot you was snooping around
tho cabin to see If tho captain bad left
any loose money behind or something
llko that,' I chipped In, but Amuilas
only gave mo ono of thorn murderous
smiles and wont on with his yarn.
" 'I wnB Btlll manning tho (Ire hose
nnd trying to pump wutor and hold
tho hoso nt tho sumo tlmo whon all of
n sudden I was nlono. Thero wasn't
n boat loft. Thero wasu't anything
oxcopt somo slush tubs, and so I put
on a life preserver and grubbed a bag
of 'biscuit and ft can of fresh water
and went overboard. Just as I got out
of danger tho ship wont down, and
thoro I was In tho south Pacific sit
ting In a big bIubIi tub with a piece of
canvas thrown over mo and not oven
a bit of plank to uso as an oar.
" 'Still It wasn't so bad, for tho sea
wns calm, and tho tub Just bobbed
nlong In nn oily kind of way, kind of
whirling around nnd around Ull I wns
dizzy. Without nothing to get no
where, I didn't know whero I might
fetch up, so while I was thinking
about It I Just went off to sleep, nnd
In tho morning when I woke up there
I was bumping gontly ngnlnst a kind
of Btcep, sandy bank, whllo pnlm trees
rustled overhead and monkeys chat
tered at mo from tho branches.
" 'Of courso I scrambled ashoro nnd
pulled tho tub up on tho beach and
took a wnlk around tho lslnnd, for
that's what It was. It was only about
fifty feet long and thirty feet wide,
nnd thero wero only flvo pnlm trees on
It and three monkeys nnd a banana
tree and ono that bore bread fruit.
Tho soil wns sandy, but kind of
spongy, or morp like rubber, but thoro
wasn't u sign of fresh wnter, except
somo Hint wns gathered In cocoanut
shells by tho monkeys. Did I say
thero was a cocoanut tree?' asked
" 'You did not mention It, but never
mind so long ns you brling It In on
time,' I says.
" 'Well,' ho scowled at me, 'how long
do you think I lived on that Island,
" 'An unlikely length of time, An
anias,' says I coolly.
" 'I'm not expecting you to bellovo
It,' says ho, getting mad. 'A man that
wasn't always a deep sen sailor, If ho
had most of his seagoing fishing down
tho bay, I guess ain't seen or heard
enough strnugo adventures to appre
ciate tho marvols of of IIo looked
arouud for tho proper word.
" 'Tho mnrvels of Invention, An
nnlas?' I nsked slyly. 'I expect there's
inoro sailors got their first knowledge
of tho sea selling codfish In a grocery
store than you, Ananias.' I've told
you Ananias used to bo n clerk in a
"Ho stared coldly at mo nnd twisted
his mouth Into another horrlblo smile.
" 'As I wns saying,' ho went on sour
ly, 'I stayed on that Island three weeks
beforo tho great upheaval camo and'
" 'Jonnh was hove up In less time
than that,' I chipped in, but ho took
no notice of me.
" 'Ono morning Just nt daybreak the
Island quivered from stem to stern,
nnd a mighty wnve rushed up and
washed completely over It. 1 would
have been drowned only I clung to the
trunk of u tree, nnd beforo another
wavo camo I Mas up tho tree among
the branches out of dnngcr. Noxt
thing I saw was tho slush tub afloat,
and in It was I lie three monkeys as
big as life, and they wero cuto enough
to take a bunch of bananas along with
'em. They bobbed out of sight astern,
and It happened so suddenly I didn't
reallzo the situation. Then It dawned
iilKin mo that Unit island wns racing
nlong through tho water nt about ton
knots! The water was washing over
her and sluicing tho sand right off.
Ono by one the palm trees went over
as tho soli disappeared, and nt last
thoro was nothing left on the Island
except tho banana tree where I was
perched, and tho heap of sand and
shells around tho roots wns growing
smaller every minute.
"'Whero tho sand had washed ofT
tho ground wns blnck and hnrd and
oily looking, and tho island rolled and
wallowed in the sea Just like n big
whale, and so I wasn't n bit surprised
when all of a sudden thero spouted
Into tho nlr a Jet of water, and I wns
certain. Every minute I wns afraid
that whale would divo and curry mo
with It to Davy Jones' locker, but then
I think It wns waiting for tho banann
tree to go. It would bo free then.
'"All at onco I henrd a shout, nnd.
looking ahead. I could seo that we wore
driving straight up on to a snndy beach
a real ono this time, cnptaln-and
men wero shouUng nnd lenplng bnck
as the whale advanced. Then there
was a mighty flop, and wo went out of
the water, tho wlialo quivered llko a
Jelly, and the bannnn tree with mo In
It went sliding oft to tho ground.
"'When I como to tho wlialo wag
dead and nil tho white men on tills
Island had patched up' u theory about
the whnlo which my story ouly sub
stantiated. Hanging from ono of his
teeth wns a short length of anchor
chain newly broken on tho lower end.
One of the links had caught In his
tooth, nnd beforo tho chain was bro
ken I suppose thero was a lot moro of
It, with, maybe, a big anchor on tho
bottom. Oh, you can sniff, cap'n, but
that anchor maybe was resting on the
summit of ii volcano or perhaps ou tho
top layer of somo Island that was In
the making. Anyway, something had
held that wlialo anchored thoro till tho
chain parted. All ho had to do was to
open his mouth and his food would
swim right In. Of courso tho wnves
washed up sand till it formed a soil,
and then birds brought seeds, and the
trees grow, and'
" 'How about those monkeys?' I ask
ed tartly, because I was mad Ann-
nlns should think 1 wns fool enough to
bellovo his yams. 'I s'poso the birds
brought them too!'
" 'Il'ni,' says Ananias, eying me
fiercely, 'I expect they was cast ashore
samo as I wasl'
" 'In u slush tub, most likely,' I said,
getting up nnd knocking out my plpo
ngnlnst the mil. 'That seemed to bo the
favorite monkey transportation line,
Ananias Sllno, and I went bolow."
Captain lJarnnbas looked down nt
tho pile of Bllvery blues that filled the
big bnsket we had brought nnd twin
kled nn eye ut me, "Most time to plpo
nil hands to dinner, I guess, Miss Tel-ham!"

Maine woodsmen, when In camp dar
ing tho winter, entertain many strange
guests blnejaya, chickadees, wood
mica and hedgehogs among them, says
a writer in tho Mow York Sun. Ono
woodsman, it appears, ou leaving camp
on a Saturday afternoon used to neg
lect, purposely, to closo tho door of his
shack in order that tho hedgehogs
might enter and clean his floor. Inas
much as tho principal constituents of
tho camp menu are pork and beans,
bacon nnd other dishes rich In fat, con
siderable grcaso is spilled upon the
floor in tho courso of n week, and a
hedgehog will risk bis neck at any
time for a bit of fat Just ns soon,
therefore, ns this particular camp was
deserted by Its occupants, tho spiny
gluttons would hasten in and begin to
piano off tho surface of tho floor with
their chisel shaped teeth, eaUng away
all the wood that held a traco of
grease. On bis roturn to camp tho
owner could Bwcep up nnd enjoy tho
comforts of a clean nonso for another
week. The only serious obJccUon to
this method of housecleanlng lay in tho
fact that it was necessary to lay a now
camp floor rather frequenUy.
A Lucky Error.
"Printers' errors aro usually nnnoy
ing, but n printer's error saved the life
of my best friend." Tho speaker wns
Cosmo Hamilton, tho English writer.
"nornce Ilamfnt is an actor, lllch
today, ho was poor and a failure up to
tho age of forty. IIIb life up to that ago
was passed in the provinces on two or
thrco quid a week. A quid, by tho way,

ter noraco Hamfat's show went up,

a letter came to blm from a London ad

from a theatrical page that Horace
