'One of the most thrilling and won derful sights In the world is that of the tunny fisheries of the Mediterranean sea. .The pursuit of these great and . swift fishes is not a mere tame operation of netting, "it Is a fight between man I and sea creatures such as Is duplicated nowhere except In the whale fisheries.

So deadly Is the tunny to the schools , of herring and similar j food fishes that he is called the herring bog. In our waters he Is known more gen erally as the horse mackerel. The tunny fisheries are distinctly Eu ropean, and- they are the oldest Indus try that is known In the Mediterranean sea.' To capture them men must band themselves together In lar...
