When the hook is first fixed it spins out like the log-line of a â¢ship going twelve knots. "The suddenness of the jerk with which the shark is brought up often turn.s him quite over. No sailor, however, thinks of hauling one on board merely by the rope fastened to the hook. To prevent the line breaking, the hook snapping, or the jaw being torn away, a running bowline is adopted. This noose is slipped down the rope and passed over the monster's head, and is made to join at the point of junction of the tail with the bod)' j and now the first part of the fun is held to be completed. The vanquished enemy is easily drawn uji over the taffrail, and flung on deck, to the delight of the crew." Iilven then he is sometimes a very formidable enemy. The Hesh of the shark, though sometimes eaten, is coarse and leathery. On sevei'al of the smaller is^lauds of the Spanish Main whaling stations are estjiblished. After the huge fish have been captured, they are towed Ijy the boats to one of these stations, and the blubber is stripped off and carried on shore to the boiling-house in large white blocks, where a simple apparatus is set up for "trying-out" the oil. It sometimes happens that immediately after the whale has been killed the sharks surround it in such number?, and devour the blubber with such rapacity, that if the distance be great and the currents adverse, the greater part has been eaten off before the whale can be towed ashore; and the labour of the
