Photograph byCapt. A. W. Stevens BENDING AND ARCHING, THE SPOUT SEEMED TO SPEED AHEAD OF THE RAINSTORM WHICH FOLLOWED IT While Captain Stevens and Mr. Gayer hastily pictured its changing aspects, Mr. Simpich made notesand timed thespout. Itlasted seven minutes. Its lower end is obscured here by the great cloud of spray which arose where, traveling in a lateral direction while swiftly whirling, ittouched thesea. Soon after this picture was made, the spout's lower end broke loose from the sea. Growing thinner then,the twisting tube waved upward, like thegray tail of a great horse, and disappeared in the clouds.
