At the time when the shores of the
Mediterranean were iiyfe.sfed witji pi
rates some 'inhahitapts of Sft.nta Lucia
were captured by the Turks and a
heavy ransom was demanded for their
release. Some fishermen, with the aid
of the statue of the Madonua, which
they had opportunely found near tin*
seashore, succeeded In collecting the
ttiknwnt iithkefl for titf releash idf their
captured friends.
The pi Kitten were asked to bring
Ukmt prisoners and to receive their
ransom, on a certain day, which hap
pened to he the last Sunday in Au
gust. The pirates, however, fearing
Homo treachery, hut not wishing;to re
turn the prisoners, took them to the
seashore at some distance from Santa
Lucia and -having drained them haurt
and foot, -threw them into the- sea.
The people of tfunta Lucia, notwith

The worth of a pearl depends not
alone on Its size, put more particular
ly upon its shape and color. A good
pearl must Pc either round, pearl
shaped or a perfect oval. It Is be
cause1 most of the pearls found in
local waters fail to till some of these
redupeniepts that they arc not rated
as especially valuable jewels. Plica
