went far beyond that. We next made

been able to figure out if it was the

Big Devilfish a Victim of the Colonel's
Love of Sport, Either on
Sea or Land.
The fame of the late Col. Theodore
Roosevelt as a big-game hunter Is well
known, but he was equally as adept at
killing big fish of the sea, according to
Russell J. Coles, noted big-flsh killer.
Attracted by one of Coles articles
about killing the devilfish, the colonel
appealed to him for Instruction In the
art. After taking several land lessons,
using a rpear with which he saw an
African kill a lion, he finally became
expert, and Mr. Coles formed a party
to hunt the devilfish off the coast of
Florida, in Punta Gorda, March 25,
1917. There the colonel killed his first
devilfish, hitting the huge creature,
which weighed many tons, Just two
Inches from the spot indicated on a
drawing by Coles, and driving the
6pear two feet four inches through the
heaviest and boniest structure of the
fish. The colonel was standing on the
cab of a small boat traveling nine miles
an hour, and the fish was coming to toward
ward toward the boat at the rate of 15 or 18
miles an hour, swimming about four
or six feet under water. Had the
colonel missed his aim the fish would
have been able, with one of its side
fins, to upset the boat and drown the
fishermen. An hour after his first
catch the colonel killed a second devil devilfish,
fish, devilfish, which was the second largest
devilfish ever killed. Mr. Coles Is a
scientist who has hunted devilfish for
more than 20 years.
