the Opium-Pipe Fish is a fearsome creature from the puget sound . It is found only at Smith cove. Whenever a steamer from the orient ties up at the dock large schools of these fish can be seen splashing about, as if in keen expectancy. They wait for the opium that is thrown overboard when the customs officials get too close on the trail of would-be smugglers. The opium-pipe fish live almost entirely on opium. When hurried, they eat it. Otherwise, they hold it in their mouths until they find a nice sunny beach, where they can smoke it at leisure midst pleasant dreams.
