Key Weet soon felt th effect of th
new competition and veesel after vessel
was withdrawn from the fishery, or els
old to th Greek, until no the Key
West fleet numbers lea than one-half
what It did In IV. It was soon discov
ered that the Oreek. dlvcfs, Instead of
going out Into th deep water which
were Inaccessible to the hooker, preferred
to frequent the shallow waters worked
by th hookers, where the sponge were
more easily and more safely secured than
In the greater depth.
Finding It Impossible to secure effec
tive state legislation owing to the con
flicting, at that time. Interest of Tarpon
Spring- and Key West, and appeal waa
made to congress, which enacted a law
In 1906 prohibiting the landing In this
country after May 1, 1907, of sponges taken
by means of diving In less than fifty feet
of water, while sponges taken In a greater
depth had to be secured between October
and May 1. This law has been of very
little benefit to th natlv spongers, as
but weak and Ineffectual efforts have been
made to enforce it.
The people of Key Weat have fought
against diving from th beginning and
hav threatened to burn the first diving
vessel which comes there. Last year a
rumor spread that a diving vessel was
working- on the key grounds In the upper
part of Monro county. An expedition
wa hastily got up, but when It swooped
down upon the susptclou vessel the lat
ter turned out to be a mackerel fisher
man from Miirrl , Nelh iruk nor

riaals - V.l.n I ajjk-a- la,,r.
Those resldenst of this town whf fa
vored . and helped In the Introduction
of the Oreek methods cf diving In Its early
days soon had their eyes opened to the
effect of the coming of the Greeks. It Is
charged against the latter that thev
spend as little money as possible, buying
only the bare necessaries of life, while
eagerly bent upon exploiting to the ut
most the state's valuable sponge bids
that they give as little as possible In re
turn for what they get. and that they
are ready to decamp as soon ss these
resnurcea are exhausted. It I probable
that the' coming session of the legist
tur will witness the enactment of laws
directed against the Oreeks.
In sponging the regular suit used hy
diver the world over I employed. The
pump 1 placed In an open boat, which
towed along to the ground by the
schooner on which th crew live. ITpon
arrival at the ground the diving crew
goes aboard the diving boat, while the
captain, cook and cleaner remain aboard
the schooner and manoeuver tt so as
not to be far away at any time.
In the diving crew are two divers, one
of whom works during the morning, whll
the other operates In the afternoon. When
ready th diver Is encased In his suit
and drop overboard by means of a small
ladder on the side and Is carried to the
bottom by the weights hanging from his
back and attached to his feet. v
Upon arrival at the bottom he walks
around .tearing loose from It fastenings
any sponge which strikes hi fancy and
placing It In a net bag attached to hi waist.
When he has a bagful or feels the need
of resting b signal to th crew, who
pull hire up and aboard the boat, where
ha rests for a short while. When
goes down again. '
Owing to th fact that they operate
much shoaler water than In th Mediter
ranean th mortality among the diver
has been exceedingly slight. None ha
fallen a victim to that dreaded dfsease
paralysis. Thla la caused by diver go
ing so deep that th men at th pumps
are unable to pump enough air to expand
the suit so that It can withstand the pres
sure of the water. The diving suit
squcese the legs and body, producing
sort of paralysis that Is not always recog
nised by the diver until he reaches the
surface; and IS exposed to th air.
Divers Battle trader Water.
There 1 keen rivalry as to which shall
secure th choice specimens. A a reault
fight bet neen rival divers occasionally
occur at th bottom. In November, 1907,
two diver fought for nearly an hour at a
depth of flfty-aeven feet for th posses
sion of a vary large sponge and inflicted
upon each other severe bruises with their
pong hook befor their comrade at
the aurface discovered what was the mat
ter and separated them , by pulling them
tncontentlnently to the surface, where they
were, of course, ' helpless to harm each
The Oreeks have Introduced their own
peculiar style of diving boat and many
of these bear names which look odd to th
observer. The name Agea Tress (Holy
Trinity) Is very popular, while Katlngo, St.
Oeorg. St. Geo, Panagea, Elpi Ladas,
Athena, Evangellatra, Texarhis, Kmhpnh
and Kphth are fairly common. The Oreek
lettering Is sometime empolyed.
In hooking, on the schooner' arrival at
th grounds, the dingy are run overboard
and two men enter each. Only one man,
the cook, is left aboard th vessel, and he
maneuvers It so as to be nsar the boats,
o that they may easily deliver on board
aoage Bed Pretty Plctare. '
One man on each dingy Is called the
hooker, while the other is known as the
culler. The sculler Is In the stern, whence
ha maneuvers It with a long oar, according
to the directions of the hooker, who Is up
in the bow. When the hooker is ready for
work ha slings the water glaas bail over
his head, lean over the gunwale snd plac
ing the water glass on the surface of th
water, bottom down, he Inserts his head

The bottom on which the sponge grow
presents a very beautiful appearance when
looked at through a sponge glass, being
covered with a species of very tall
rest nor and snort moss, red. brown or
white, and a th boat is slowly sculled
along It presents a kaleldescopio appear-
nee, whk-h frequently bring forth crie
of admiration from even the aponger.
Sponge ar usually found In from twlv
to fifty feet of water.
When a good sponge appear In light

boat to be sent In ths desired direction
Th hooksr plunge th hook Into the
water, and aa soon as he Is within reach
he skillfully insert th hook under th
sponge, d-stsvehes it and bring t to tb
surface, where It ia pulled off the hook
and placed In th bottom of th dingy,
Car must be ta,n that th apong does
not work off th hook, as then it would
be lost and become what tbe spongers
call a rolling John, l
Th hooker must hav experience, as h
is compelled to distinguish between the
different varieties of sponge at whatever
depth h may be working and must not
be deceived by worthies loggerheads

specimens, but ar so poor that when
brought to the surfa-ss they fall apart Of

to run off and the animal die.

which ha a strong ammonlacal scent.
When a load had been secured or near th
nd of the week, they sre taken to th
kraals, which are enclosures of wattled
takes sbotit ten or twelve feet square,
built ckse to shore In water from two to
four feet In depth. Most of th kraal are
located close to Anclote, on th eoaat sev
eral mile from here.
After remaining In the kraals for about
week In order to allow the animal mat
ter to decay they are taken out and beaten
while wet with a shrrt wooden peddle to
drive out the decomposed matter. They
ar then queexed In order to drive out
the water and th remaining animal mat
ter and are then sprung on a piece of
coarse string about five feet In length.
Sponges of a different grade are never put
on tha same string and the stringer also
endeavors to have sponges of a similar
site in the same bunch.
Th diving boat clean their sponges on
board the vessel, thus obviating tha expense
The dangers of the fishery Is greatest In
the fall, when the hurrican season Is on.' A
hurrtcan may swoop down upon th fleet
and spread death and destruction. In Oc
tober, 1906, a hurrican swept through the
key and about twelv vessels, nearly all
of which were spongers. - were destroyed In
the neighborhood of Knights Key. One
vessel waa carried nearly a mil In US tha
Interior of one of the key.
All sponges are sold either at Tarpon
Springs or Key West, by far the greater
part being sold here, and the method Al
lowed In disposing of them I probably
unique and hase been followed almost from
the Inception of the business.
The Sponge Rxcbang.
On the Anclota river, about twenty min
utes' walk from the heart of this town, la
the Sponge exchange, a long, low building
with a yard surrounded by a high board
fence. Th building I divided into com
partment in which the sponges are stored
until the sale days, on Tuesdays and Fri
days of seen week.
On the mornlnn of tha sale th sponges
are taken out Into the yard and arranged
In piles, each grade being kept separata.
The buyers, who represent the Isrgs
wholesale firms dealing In such articles,
are permitted to look over the bunches at
any time before or during the ssle. but are
not allowed to weigh them. When tha
hour of sale arrives th auctioneer take
hi place besld the first pile and ask for

the auctioneer, who lay It face down In
the palm of hi hand. There Is no con- '
tlnuous competition as in a regular auction,
a each man Is allowed only one bid.
When all the bids are in the auctioneer
reverses them snd reads off th amount.
The highest bid takes the pile, and th
auctlonser hands tha slip back to tha suc
cessful bidder, who writes his nama and
the data on It and then offers it to th
