LIFE AT CAPE FLITTEKI.
n&llbnt aad Salmon la Almndancs lloir In
dians Kill Seals.
Tatoosh letter in Friday Harbor
Graphic: Tho halibut fishers are
reaping a rich harvest this summer
here, and very often they come in
from a few hours' fishing with from
twenty to forty large halibut per man.
The famous Flattery banks are aboat
twelve miles northwest of our light,
and 33 I write I can see the fishing
steam schooner Qeorge H-. Chance of
Portland, Ore., lying at anchor and
loading with those flat beaubes of the
deep. The Chance unloads her cargo
at Portland, and they are immedi
ately shipped east to Kansas City,
Omaha, Chicago and other points.
This branch of industry is yet iu its
infancy, but I fancy that ere long I
will be able to-count on that same
bauk not one but scores of fine fish
The salmon have jest put in an ap
pearance here, and the" Indians are
busy trolling for them, although there
is so mnch bait around the capo now
they will not bite well for a week or
ten days at least The whales, sea
lions, sharks and hair seals are making
things lively for the salmon, and when
a whale rolls in where tho salmon are
thick, I can see the speckled beanfae3
jump two or three feet out of the
water. One Indian yesterday killed
seven seals, and the largest one would
weigh 409 pounds, if not more.
From Cape Flattery to the bend op
posite our light there aro twenty-two
caves, and the seals go in thoro to en
joy a quiet snooze, but the Indiau
glides up iu his little canoe, hits tho
poor seal a tap on tho nose, and quietly
transfers him from his shady resting
place to tho bottom of his light canoe,
and then turns his attention to seal No.
2. When the tide i3 light tho Indians
have a enrious way of hunting seals iu
these caves, which is quho curious to
seo. An -Lnaian witn a naming torcn
on liis head swim3 into tho cave ami
the seals crowd around him in wonder
at this strange visitation, when Indian
No. 2 steals up noiselessly in his canoe
and knocks them on the head with a
club made expressly for that purpose.

A French doctor has been giving

of taking a book to bed with them
