Friday, July 21,1916. THE FORT WAYNE SENTINEL.' h : \ Many Species of the Fish Noteworthy Because of Their Size. Washington, July 21.--The tr?gic depredations of man-eating sharks along the Atlantic seaboard lend an especially timely interest to a communication from Dr. Hugh Jf. Smith, the foremost American authority on fishes, addressed to the National Geographic society and released today as a bulletin. "When giant fishes are mentioned most people will at once think of tho shark, among which, indeed, are found the largest fish now existing," writes Mr. Smith. "Of the many species of sharks noteworthy on account of their fi/c there are about half a dozen which an- prominent. These differ much in their disposition, some being as harmless a? doves and others the incarnation of fc- ro-iij. "The sleeper shark (Sommiewj micro- cephalos). whose scientific name fits it so admirably, appears to have developed its body at the expense of its brain, for it is a sluggish, stupid glutton, about six times as long as an average man At home in the Arctic regions it sometimes makes visits as far south as Cape Cod, th.p British Isles and Oregon. It is most often observed lying quietly on the surface, apparently dozing and easily approached, but at times, when hungry, it rouses itself and fiercely attacks whales, biting huge pieces out of ll.eir sides and tails, and when feeding on the carcass of a whale which has been killed by hunters it U so voracious that it permits spears and knhes to be thrust into it without seeming to take any notice. "One of the most prodigious and i cr- haps the most formidable of sharks is the'man eater' (Carcharodon carcharias). It roams thiough all temperate and tropical seas and everywhere is an object of dread. Its maximum length is 40 ieci and its teeth aie three inches long. While there are few authentic instances of sharks attacking human beings {prior to the recent tragedies), there have undoubtedly been many cases where sharks pimply swallowed people who had fallen overboard, just as they would swallow tiny other food. How easy it would be for a man-eater to devour a person whole m?y be judged from the finding of an entiie hundted-ponnd sea-lion In the stomach of a 30-foot shark on tlto California roast. A certain man-pater 30 1 -2 feet long had jaw s 20 inches w ide, Inside measure, and teeth 2 1 - 2 inches long. This may have been the 'great lish' of tlfe scripture narrative, and it is possible that at that time much larger man-eaters existed than are now known, V Especially Now Watch the baking powder. Great efforts are being made to substitute an alum baking powder for the old reliable Royal. You do not want to use alum baking powders. Doctors and chemists will tell you that they add unwholesome qualities to the food. "Be sure you get Known the world over as "the best baking powder*" Royal is made from cream of tartar which is derived from grapes. - It contains no alum or detrimental ingredients. Royal leavens the food perfectly and adds to its tastefulness and wholesomeness. ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO.

The phosphate beds of South Carolina yield very large fossil teeth of a shark which was related to the man- eater of the present day, judging from the comparative size of these teeth. Prof. Goode thought that sharks 70 or SO feet long must have been common. "Many years ago a Norwegian bishop in a learned paper hi ought to the attention of the scientific and theological worlds a shark which he attempted to prove must have been the 'great fish' that swallowed Jonah. This was the basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus). known also as the elephant or bone shark, which is an inhabitant of the The Store for Better Values "The Reason" Behind the Clothes This store is run by its customers; what they want we must provide; only as our stock reflects their preferences do we succeed. ,The reason this is Fort-Wayne's Foremost -Clothes Shop selling High-Grade Suits at M At Never Higher Never Lower Is because our customers wear them!

"Down the Street, But --It Pays to polar seas, but occasionally strays as far south as Vhginia and California, and in foimer years was not lare in the United States and British coasts. Ihe species has the habit at times of collecting in schools at the suifaco and basking in the sun with its back partly out of water. It reaches a maximum length of 50 feet and is exceeded in sue by only three or four animals extant. Provided w i t h small teeth, it feeds on fishes and floating crustaceans, and is not of a ferocious disposition. It is dangerous only by virtue of its great bulk and when attacked its powerful tail easily demolishes boats. In former years the basking shark was hunted for its oil on the coast of Norway and Ireland: it was also harpooned on the s'mre of Massachusetts in the early part of the last century, and as many as 13 barrels of oil were sometimes obtained from the liver of one shark. There aic many records of basking shaiks 25 to 38 feet long from the. coast of New- York, Massachusetts and Maine, but the species has not been common in our waters in recent years. "The largest of all fishes, the largest of all cold-blooded animals, and the largest of all existing animals, with tho exception of a few species of whales, is the whale shark (Rhineodon typicm). originally described from Good Hope but now known from India, Japan, South America, Panama, California, and various other spots. The species is stated to attain a length of 70 feet and is known to exceed 50 feet. Notwithstanding its immense sire, however, it is harmless to man unless attacked, and feeds on the small creatures for which its teeth are adapted. Years ago it was reported that the sperm-whale fishermen Gov. Capper, of Kansas, celebrates his )irthda each year by acting as host to .he children of Topeka, Kas , at mo\ie shows.

Mexico, July' 20.--Senorita Oralia Salinas y Carran/a has gone to Monterey to forget a certain gringo. She is a niece of First Chief Carranza, and he is Sherwood Moe, son of a wealthy resident of (iary, Ind., and brother of the pretty senorita's college chum nt Notre Dame. A few days ago Sejiorita Oralia danced with glee and road to her brother Alberto's wife this telegram: "Will be in Piedras Negras in July. "SHERWOOD." A few days later Senora Alberto Salinas y Carranra read this headline in La Democrata of Piedras Negras: "EL PRESIDENTE WILSON YA HA LLAMADO LOS SOLDADOS DE LOS EKTADOS!" "President Wilson has called out the state militia," remarked the senora to the senorita. "Pues! Didn't you tell me your Senor Moe was a member of the state militia?'' "Yes," said Senorita Oralia : "yes." And then a -'thought struck her, and her eyes flashed. the' way he's ^coming to Piedras Negras!" she e-xclaimed. "Well he will be luckj if he reaches Piedras Negras--and he won't meet me!" So this will explain to Mr. Moe why he ia persona non grata just now witl the senorita--although he didn't expeci to be called out and really he didn't mean it that way at all. "Just think!" said Senorita Oralia to hfr sister-in-law, "he might come hen to shoot down Alberto--my brother-your husband; the TIretell! 'Will be in Piedras Negras in July.' Well, I'll jus bet he won't!" Alberto, the brother, is chief of the Mexican army aviation corps and a graduate of St. John's Military ncad emy, near Syracuse, N. Y. This is not the only international ro raanoe threatened by the possibility o war. All through the border states an families that wUl be split if war comes-brothers serving in the Texas or New Mexico national guard while anotlie brother's sympathy is with Mexico. Am many are the Mexican girls in the Unite- States torn by love for their native law and for some tall "Yanqui" in the bor der states' militia who may be callec upon at any time to shoot down theii kinsmen.
