How Lost! How Regained
It is one of those tales that illustrate
v.o motinum this rruel ace. The
pirate had long been the scourge of the
honest Venetian traders. Sometimes
they would disguise themselves as mer
chantmen trading peacefully to Candia
for wine, and then throwing off their
disguises, would prey upon all around
them. Mo mercy wan enown in iun
fearful contests. Between the sea rob
liers and the merchants there was a
lasting and deadly hostility. It was to
the pirate class that the Columbi be-
longed, and of all tne corsairs oi me
day they were the most renowned. The
elder Columbus had apparently lain in
wait in vain for tne ncn neei mai aueu
pparlv to the north. ' But he had a son,
known as Columbus Junior, who fol
lowed the same profession ana wnose
true name was Nicolo Griego, or Nich
olas the Greek. He at last succeeded in
the project which his father had so long
essayed in vain. The prize was a temp v

The corsairs, or columbi, approacnea

to have set Columbus' ship on fire. The
flames consumed both vessels. The only

person she had become so left nanaea
that she could neither cut, sew nor write

to do all these things with her left.
Her right hand was just about as useful

one day last week at the Tule ranch in
the pineries. The lion had crawled into
a pig pen through a small hole, and after
feasting on two shoats was too big to
get out through the hole. Thus he was
an easy prey to the doctor, who gave
him a hypodermic injection of birdshot

A Great Famine Predicted.
A prophet in Athens, Ga., predicts
that the crop yield this year throughout
this country will be the largest ever
known, but that beginning with 1893,
and for two years thereafter, there will
be the greatest famine the world has
ever known. During that time rain
shall cease to fall, and the streams of
the country will all dry up, vegetation
will no longer exist, and all animals
will surely die. At the beginning of the
famine the land will be infested with all
sorts of ve-min, and the living will suf
fer untold tortures.
