A Live Torpedo


All quiet in the water, not a fish to be seen. And suddenly a striped fish flashes up as though it were a Torpedo. It has gone for a piece of food. As soon as it catches sight of something to eat, it bursts forward as though it has been fired from a catapult, in a little jerk, and advances in similar jerks until it gets to the food. But when it is full it swims quietly among the water-weeds, only its fins fluttering.
