When one Hpeaks of dangerous fish the first that come to mind are the uhurk nnd the oetopUH. But neither of these IH really formidable to fishermen. The Hhark never attacks u boat and the octopus very rarely. A much worse creature than Hther Hhark or octopus Is the devilfish -a largo ray thnL Is common In the warm •waters of the Atlantic. This llsh grows to a weight of a ton and a half nnd, besides formidable teeth, Is armed with a horrible barbed and poisoned Kplko In the (all. H has often been known to attack boats. A lishlng party In a launch succeeded In harpooning one of these llsh In the bay known an Aransns Pass, Texas. The brute towed them eighteen miles out to Ben and very nearly upset the launch. It was twenty-live feet long and weighed ;!,OUU pounds. A very nasty customer Is the green inoray of Itermuda. This rather resembles a conger eel, but Is green 111 color mid Hiiviige beyond any llsh that swims. An Kngllsh marine ollieer, llsli- Ing off llermiida a year or two ago, hooked a large specimen and began to pull It In. Ills negro boalman, his eyes staring with fright, begged him s\ lldly to cut the line. The ollieer at lirst refused, but when he HIIW the llsh turn on itself ami with a crunch of saw edged teeth bite a large piece out of Its own body he came to the conclusion that U was not a nice thing to have In a small boat. The swordlish Is a dangerous creature. Swordllsh are caught for the sake of their oil ami flesh, especially along the Atlantic coast of the United Sillies. They are harpooned lu the name manner in which whales used to be killed. i.Miiet enough until attacked, the swordlish then seems to g" ravine mad and lights \\ilh unmatched ferocity.- London An.-.'.s er>.
