1916 New Jersey Shark Attacks During an 11-day period during a 1916 heatwave, five people were attacked by sharks along the coast of New Jersey. Only one victim survived. These well chronicled events inspired Peter Benchley's famous novel Jaws. The first attack occurred on Saturday, July 1 at Beach Haven, a resort town off New Jersey's southern coast. Charles Epting Vansant, 25, of Philadelphia was vacationing at the Engleside Hotel. Before dinner, Vansant decided to take a quick swim in the Atlantic. Shortly after entering the water, Vansant began shouting. He was rescued by lifeguard Alexander Ott who pulled the bleeding Vansant from the water. Vansant's left thigh had been stripped of its flesh. He bled to death on the hotel manager's desk. The second attack occurred 45 miles north of Beach Haven at the resort town of Spring Lake, New Jersey. The victim was Charles Bruder, 27, a hotel bellhop. Bruder was killed on Thursday, July 6, 1916, while swimming 130 yards from shore. A shark bit him in the abdomen and severed his legs. Lifeguards Chris Anderson and George White pulled Bruder into their canoe but he bled to death before they reached the shore. The next two attacks occurred on Wednesday, July 12. They shockingly took place in fresh water in Matawan Creek near the town of Matawan, 30 miles north of Spring Lake and 16 miles inland! Around 2 p.m. some local boys, including Lester Stillwell, 11, were playing in the creek at an area called the Wyckoff Dock. A dorsal fin appeared and the boys realized it was a shark. Before Stillwell could leave the creek, the shark pulled him underwater. Stillwell's friends ran to town for help. Several men, including local businessman Watson Stanley Fisher, 24, came to investigate. Fisher jumped into the creek to find Stillwell's body, but he too was attacked by the shark in front of several horrified witnesses. Fisher was pulled from the creek without recovering Stillwell's body. His right thigh was severely injured and he bled to death at Monmouth Memorial Hospital in Long Branch. Stillwell's body was recovered 150 feet upstream from the Wyckoff Dock on July 14. The fifth and final victim, Joseph Dunn, 14, of New York City was attacked a half mile from the Wyckoff Dock nearly 30 minutes after the attacks on Stillwell and Fisher. The shark bit his left leg, but Dunn was rescued by his brother and a friend after a vicious tug-of-war with the shark. Dunn was taken to Saint Peter's University Hospital in New Brunswick. Dunn lost his leg, but otherwise recovered. There is some debate whether just one shark was responsible for all five attacks. However, there were no further attacks after a shark, that was found to have human bones in its stomach, was killed. What prompted the rash of attacks in 1916? One grisly theory is that Atlantic sharks had grown accustomed to feeding on humans after German submarine attacks.

LHOP - The Talking Machine Last Four Minutes Here is the final four minutes of one of my favorite episodes of Little House on the Prairie. Titled "The Talking Machine," it's from 1976. Here's the plot: Mean Nellie Oleson and Laura are both smitten with older classmate Jason, a science buff. Nellie acquires a Thomas Edison-style talking machine. One day she tricks Laura into talking about how she feels about Jason. All the while the talking machine is recording Laura's voice. Nellie "demonstrates" the machine in front of the class by playing Laura's conversation. Laura is humiliated and runs off. The next day she reluctantly returns to school unsure of how Jason will react to her. Here's the feel-good climax.

LHOP - Centennial Finale Here's another favorite clip from Little House on the Prairie. It's the final six minutes of an episode titled Centennial. Here's the plot: As America's centennial approaches in 1876, few adults in Walnut Grove are in the mood to celebrate. They have just been informed of a tax hike made necessary to build an improved road system. Furthermore, newly arrived immigrants from Tsarist Russia, Yuli Pyatakoff and his family, are being evicted from their farm because they cannot pay the back taxes accrued by the previous owner. Everyone is grumpy about taxes and the government--until Yuli tells them how good they've got it.

LHOP - The Pride of Walnut Grove The concluding six minutes of The Pride of Walnut Grove--a terrific episode of Little House on the Prairie. Here's the plot: Mary does so well on a math exam that she qualifies to enter the state mathematics contest in Minneapolis. The Ingalls family has just $2 to their name, so it looks like Mary's trip to the big city is off. However, the school board votes to foot the bill for Mary and Caroline to make the trip. Since the town is paying her expenses, Mary feels especially pressured to win. This scene opens with another girl named Mary finishing first and Mary Ingalls placing a very respectable second--but the latter feels she's let Walnut Grove down by being runner-up.

Little House on the Prairie Set Today The Big Sky Ranch was where the classic NBC series Little House on the Prairie was shot during it nine-year run (1974 to 1983). The wooden buildings no longer exist. (One of the conditions for LHOP to use the venue stated that the buildings used in the show had to be dismantled once the series ended.) Here's what the ranch looks like today--along with what it looked like when the show was in production.
