"Not too lively! You don't want to lose this fish!" and the captain likes to take them in dead. Besides there is no ~ime limit on this game, and half the fun is playing the fish. He will start for the bottom pres- ently, and then you can pump him as hard as you like, which was just what happend. I stood behind the chair to keep him facing the fish, and oc- casionally asked him how he liked it. "Say, this beats anything I ever im- agined! How long have I been at it ?" About twenty minutes. "It didn't seem to me over five]" By this time he had gotten the tuna up when we had occasional glimpses of him. "He's a good one, son; don't hurry too much."

The Catalina Island Company has already started evening searchlight trips on the fast little mo- torship Betty O. to see the tlyingfish. It is a wonderful sight to see them leap and dart by the hundreds in the rays of the searchlights. The Company will operate a new flv- ingfish boat, the Blanche, within a few days, to take care of the summer evening trips out of Avalon, which are always so popular with the visitors. seemed to feel a good deal like what the twelve diciples must have felt in the ohl darkey preacher's description of the Miracle of the loves and fishes. Fie said it was a great miracle. "De twelve diciples sat down on de shore of de sea of Galilee, an day eat seben lhousand loaves and five thousand fishes."
