HARD FIGHT WITH SHARKS. Two California Fishermen Have a Thrilling Experience and Nar? row Escapes. : Gny Ames and W. A. Graham, two fishermen at Newport Beach, Ca!., had a thrilling1 experience the other day with two monster sharks while fish? ing with heavy lines fastened ashore. ?The men were cruising about the lines tin a small skiff, when they discovered that two of the lines had hooked two sharks, one fully 12 feet and the other ^ore than 20 feet long. Having no fire? arms, the men concluded to try to stun jthe monsters by rowing close to where itbay had risen to the surface and strik? ing them on the head with a heavy [club. This was done to the larger one, |but it was almost a fatal mistake for iboth fishermen. One infuriated deep? -sea monster lashed and churned the jwater about the boat, striking it sev? eral times with such force that the [fishermen expected to see it rent into [splinters. At every opportunity the !club descended upon the head of the [shark, for the fisher...

TITLES ARE REWARDS. Hen Accept Them Because They- Con JerDistinction and Individuality Upon the Possessor. Henry Labouchere, member of tlie British parliament and editor of Lon? don Truth, is moved to decry earthly honors and dignities after tins manner: "We live for a speek of time in an eternity whi*h lias no time. We have a name by which we are known as a necessary consequence of our individ? uality. But what pleasure can there be in being called in this speck of time either My Lord or Sir John by the finite worms that happen to be existing-dur? ing- our brief lives? What pleasure, too, can there be going about bedizened with ribbons like a prize cow? The cow would prefer a good meal to the rib? bons?so would I." Before pursuing this commentary any further it is safe to say Ihat Mr. La? bouchere is not insensible to distinc? tion. He -would not be an-Englishman of his class and generation if he were.

WORK OF ARMY CHAPLAINS. Tbey Have Manv and Different Ways of Reaching the Heart ot the Soldier Hoys. While military men and office-seek? ers of almost every other sort are using every effort to secure commissions in the new volunteer regiments, no large and loud clamor for the positions of chaplain have been made public. The regiments in the Philippines are not overburdened with these blackcoated officers as it is, ami it is entirely prob? able that most of the ten additional regiments will leave without them. The chaplains are appointed by the president, but their assignments are usually to posts rather than regiments, and they are a function of peace time. Dr. S. S. Turner, who is one of the ex? amining surgeons at the Chicago re? cruiting station, was talking a few days ago about the chaplains he had known in his long experience upon western posts and Indian reservations. He in? clines to the theory that an army chap? lain can do more good by example than active campaigning. lie ...

HARKET REPORTS NEW YORK STOCK MARKET. NEW YORK, Oct. 9.?The stock mar? ket early in the session showed an up? ward tendency and some degree oC strength. The steel and wire stocks were hid up hut the fact was obvious that there was no vital support of im? portance and the downward drift was renewed. By the close of the day the gains were wiped out except in a few cases. and a number of industrial stocks showed quite large losses. Steel and wire was a notable exception and rose 3 points on reports of new proper? ties acquired, most of the gain beins retained at the close. Sugar and Tobacco enjoyed their pe? riod of strength but both of them clos? ed at net losses. There was some large buying of United Slates leather but its train was not maintained.

Curiously Enough, it Won't be Generally Accepted. Ail reports to the contrary, it is eX tremely improbable that any Newport News eouneilrnen or city ofliciais will go to Washington tonight, either on their own hook or anybody's else. The facts regarding this proposed trip may not be generally known. Be it understood then, that at least ten members of the council, the mayor, city attorney and city engineer, have been invited to go to the National 'Capital tonight, all expenses to be [ aid, not one of them to spend a cent of their own or the city's money. This uniquely generous invitation was extended yesterday by Mr. chas. H. Ruth, an attorney, who dropi? d into the city some months ago and es- j tablished an office nearly opposite the i courthouse.
