Corpse Seen in Shark's Jaws ADELAIDE, Sunday. About 12.30 p.m. on Friday people on the beach near 'Port Germein saw a shark about 15 feat long rise full length out of the water with a fully-clothed corpse in its jaws. After shaking the body viciously the shark dis appeared. Some minutes later it reappeared with the body still in its mouth. Captain Karl Victor Karlsson, of the Finnish barque Penang, went to the spot in a rowing boat and fired several re volver shots at the shark, which was not seen again. The body was recovered, and identified as that of Lars Rasmussen (21), able seaman. The body of Axel Harry Lindquist (21), ship's car penter, was found washed ashore to-day. Both men were members of the crew of the Penang, and were returning to the ship at about 2.15 a.m. on February 2 with ten others from a dance on shore, when their 12-foot dinghy cap sized in rough sea. Their com panions were saved. .----------------------------------------
