What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Over 100 FiM.ple Diuwiti-d off Golden Gate Sain Francisco, Feb. 22—A pilot’s afc- t tempt to briBg is during1 a thick fog the big pacific mail steamer Rio do Janeiro early this morning led to the wreck of the vessel on Fort Point Lodge, outside the Golden Gats, and the loss of 128 persons out of a total of 206 os board. The explanation of the terrible Iqsa of life is that the vessel sank in 15 minutes after she struck, carrying down most of the small boats which still hung on the davits. The officers showed great cool ness and the passengers behaved well un til the bow begau to sink suddenly. When it was seen that the vessel was on the point of sinking there was a wild panic. Men and women ran screaming to the boats, only to find them not low ered. Over ono hundrod Chinese were huddled together below, simply dazed with terror. Many jumped overboard and were carried down by the suction of the steamer. All about was thick darkness which probably prevented many from eB- ( caping. The most prominent passenger of the steamer was Rouusville Wildman, United States consul at Honlcong, who was ac companied by his wife and two children. All were drowned. ’Ihe ship was in com mand of Pilot Frederick Jordan when she struck. He was rescued. Oapt. Wil liam Ward went down with his vessel. Reports as to his fate differ. ¡Some 'say that he remained on the bridge until^ the last, directing the lowering of the boats, while others claim that when he Baw that further efforts were useless ho went into 'his cabin,.loplpid the door-and presumab ly committed suicide, as he had threat ened to do if he over had a wreck. The fate of Consul General Wildman aud his fnmily was settled by Mrs. West, who saw them all, except, one ehild, in a email boat alongside the steamjr. Just ae the -vessel sank a mast fell cutting in two the boatin which the Whdmans were aud sinking it. As the Wildmans were not seen afterward they doubtless sank with the vessel. .Black Kyii For Join lists. Gov.

The experiments showed that tho blood of'monkeys, in respect to albumen, was next in natural affinity to tiie blood of man. The test was based on the employ ment of hemolysina and praccipitine. The discovery will be of immense service in the detection and investigation of crime. It will bo of intense interest also to scientists of the Darwinian school as it will tend strongly to sustain their theory of the descent of man from lower orders, presumably from some family of the man-like apes. .... and..,..
