One That Swallowed Whole a Shark
Fifteen Feet Long.
Frank i Hullcn. the noted -writer of
sea tales, in one of his lectures said
that in New Zealand he once saw a
whale opened and there were found
in its stomach a number of fish which
must simply have swum down its
throat, and among them was a shark
fifteen feet long and nine feet round.
The huge Greenland whale was de
scribed. Mr. Hullcn asked his au
dience to imagine a monster of 250
tons and told how such a one was
taken on a voyage in which he took
part, enough whalebone being taken
out of his head to pay a good dividend
on the voyage. For sis months in the
year this particular kind of whale,
which was the most helpless of all.
led a life of alarums and excursions,
for he was always being chased.
A third kind of whale, the hump
backed whale, was shown In a picture
jumping from the water, and Mr. Bul
len explained that this was no indi
cation of joy in life. They were, in
fact, if not driven out of their minds,
certainly driven out of the water by
parasites adhering to their bodies.
This particular whale was greatly de
voted to its young, and if a man hap
pened to kill a calf he needed all his
ingenuity to escape from the mother.
On one occasion fifty-two boats went
after whales in thp bay of California
and by accident a calf was killed. In
one hour the parent destroyed fifty of
the fifty-two boats, killing a number
of men, and then sailed out to sea
without a scratch.
"In the English county of Wiltshire,'
aid a customs official, "the natives
are called moonrakers.' There's a
Wiltshire story, over a century old,
about some rustics who were found
one night raking away in a pond at
the reflection of the moon, which they
took for a cheese.
That's a very good story, a very
funny skit on the men of Wiltshire,
but ask a Wiltshire man about it and
with a contented chuckle he will say:
"Oh, yes, people tell as how they
give the uame o' moonrakers' to us
Wiltshire pecple bekase a passel o'
stoopids one night tried to rake the
shadder o' the moon out o' the brook,
takin it for a thin cheese. But that's
the wrong cud o' the story. It's alto
gether the wrong end. Them chaps
as was doitf this was smugglers and
they was lishin' up some kegs o bran
dy and only pretended to rake out a
cheese. The policeman as axed 'cm
what they was about had a good laugh
at 'em. but. by Harry! they had a
better laugh at him when they got
home with the stuff."'
A Death Lure.
According to tradition. Kenith. the
legendary kin;: of Scotland, was al
lured to his death in a most novel man
ner. Kenith had slain a son and broth
er of Fennella. who to be avenged or
dered Wiltus. a famous silvcrsuiitli. to
construct a death dealing statue of sil
ver. In its right hand the statue held
a basin and in the left hand an apple
of pure gold, both set with diamonds
and other precious stones. To touch
the apple was to defy death. It being
so arranged that any one guilty of
such vandalism would be Immediately
riddled by pols-oned arrows shot from
openings in the body of the statue.
Kenith was invited to inspect the won
der, and. as Fennella had hoped, lie
tried to pluck the precious imitation
fruit When his hand touched the ap
ple he was wounded by the arrows and
died where he fell.

Grenada Was Bought Cheap.
The i-dand or ('reuada. the I'rit
fsh West Indies, was bought by the
Freiu-h from the Caribs by a solemn
treaty in the middle of the seventeenth
century . and the price paid was two
bottles of rum. Esau's mess of pot

comparison. The Caribs soon regret

"Very well." he said soothingly.
Then he opened the door, and from the
kitchen there drifted in the smell of

"Your nurse." said the doctor.
Half an hour later he persuaded her

"Soaked that popped corn in it." said
he. "flives it an entirely different
