This is believed to be one reason why the pilot fish often swims behind sharks. It wants to eat the food which -is left over! The pilot fish is only a foot or so long. Its custom of following sharks has been observed many times, and explains the name-sailors saw the little fish in the position of a pilot to the shark! Despite the fact that it stays close to sharks, the pilot fish is seldom, il ever, eaten by the big fish. way, Greenland and Iceland, also in the north Pacific. CONVICT^ MGHTER By RUTH RAY K^NE CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN LONA WAS like an excited child as she showed Jim about the rooms she had rented for their first home. , "Isn't it perfect'.'" she asked [ when they had come to the tiny j kitchen. "It's great, girl." he agreed. "And you look swell in that apron. Sort of like--home, isn't it?" The longing in his voice touched . her. "Oh, Jim"' she said, and i clung lo him. "It's so good to be t happy." i "You are happy, then, girl?" It almost seemed as if he were reus- 1 suring himself. I "Of course, I'm happy. I'm so happy I could almost cry. Think of it! No more looking for work, no more boarding houses, no more | being lonesome . . . " I "Maybe you've jumped from i the frying pan into the fire." His i voice was teasing. "Just wait un! til you have to get up at six , i o'clock and get my breakfast. And 1 -- j cook and scrub and make beds, : and--\vhat else does a housewife ) have to do?" He paused, inquir- I ingly.

When garbage Is thrown overboard, there is a gopd supply of food for any fish which may be near. It seems that pilot fish also eat little animals known as barnacles which often gather on the bottom of a ship. Another interesting fish is the wolf fish, also called "sea-wolf" It is found neai- the coasts of Nor- ports o£ them attacking people swimming in the sea. They grow to a length of fire or six feet, and their mouths are armed with sharp, strong teeth. These teeth are used to crush the shells of oysters, crabs and other animals on which they feed. Several kinds of fish are named after birds. There are parrot fish, sea robins and sea ravens. Parrot fish have rows of small teeth which have grown together to form a kind of beak. With this ·beak" they bite off pieces of the seaweed on which they live. , The sea raven is an ugly-look| ing fish about two feet long. Tt is i fairly common off the coast of j New England and eastern Canada. j The sea robin is also small. It has a reddish brown coloring on its body which no doubt explains its name. An interesting fact about the sea robin is its custom of crawling along the bottom of the sea. There are fins under its bods', just behind 'the lower jaw. which serve as ' legs" of a sort. They not only help it move, but also dig down a little into the ooze, and lay bare small animals hiding there. (For Nature s e c t i o n of .your scrapbook.)

Watching Ji m enjoy it, Lona i pride stirred justifiably. She had ' she felt, outdone herself. "This is swell, girl," Ji ra t o)d her approvingly, as he pushed back his plate and reached for his pipe. She had it ready for him, together with the evening paper, and she made a great ado of establishing him in the easy chair in the living room while she cleared off the table. He objected at first, insisting upon helping her with the dishes, but she brushed aside his scruples. "You're spoiling me," h e told her solemnly, pulling her down on lus lap for a moment before he let her have her own way "I'm warning you." But in his kiss =he read that he was secretly delighted at her solicitude.

"We've come to make sure you're comfortable over here," the woman told her. when introductions had been completed. "If there's anything needed that's not here voure to tell me.
