the cauKc of too disasters many of them
arc as absolute mysteries today as when
tney happened,

Ogolvio, and after she cleared .Sandy Hook
light she was never hoard from again.

A most extraordinary aeeident was tc.at
wliich happened to thc oorvct Mononga-
hcla nt.Smla Cruz In 1807.
Wmi. at ar.ohor in the harbor a fromen-
dotis tidal wave lifted her upon its orost
and  omried   her clean ovor tho  town of
Frodorlchslndt and back again withou
injuring thu town or the lout to nny gn .1
extent.   The receding wave laud.'d her 1
tho beach instead of in too deep water
tiie harbor, and  it cost our governi.ie;
(100.nun to  Hunt   her again.      Fully  U.
strange wus Co Into of tho aloop-of-wai
Walerec    sho was anchored iu 'ho harbor
��f ..riua, Peru, in  1868, when a huge tidal  wave swept  inland and flooded  the
���v ho'.o clly.    The wave ourried  the sloop
several   miles  Inland and finally landed
hor in the midst of a tropical forest.   It
was Impossible to relon. .> her from such a
peculiar position, and the government sold
her "or a nominal  sum.    The purchasers
turned fho vessel into a hotel, and tlio remains of lhat once formidable war-ve sol
loom up in the tropical forest.today as a
monument to the power of tiddi waves.
Among other cases of disaster which'me
all. iliulc.l to the violence of tho waves or
weather I hore la none more Interesting
thun ths* of the strango.fate of -the Sara-
'toga. When she-sailed from Philadelphia
in Ootohar,'1780, under tbo command Of
Captain James Young, there was no flnor
or handsomer war ve6sol afloat. That
she was as formidable ns she was attractive was soon demonstrated in a practic*,*
way. After cruising around a short tinu,
she captured three British vessels In succession, and then, with her prizes, sho
started to return to Philadelphia, but tiff
the Delaware capos she encountered tt
Drill, h ship ol thu line. As the Saratoga
Carried only 18 guns and the Intrepid was
a 71 gun ship, Captain Young considered
It safer to run away. Tlie enemy did not
chase her far. but returned to.protoct. avf&
recapture tlio British prizes. .Tho Saratoga sailed away In tho very'teeth ofst
storm, and she was never heard from
again Did sho fouv.de;-ut sea in the
