Twenty miles to the south of Venice, down the narrow Lido lagoon, Chioggia j is a miniature of the island city, but wore medieval, less changed by time, ! and therefore more picturesque. The trip to Chioggia In a gondola fives one the best possible view of the Venetian lagoons. Out upon the open water you get a splendid impression of the luminous immensity of the Italian landscape. The water stretches away blue gray to a low, dim mainland, and beyond that the Italian Alps seem to float in the air. Now and again you pass a bit of an island town with its narrow arched streets and old stone walls, and fishing boats with gaudy sails loiter by like lazy, bright-winged insects. Chioggia is but another of these lit tle towns with a long canal running through it where the fishing boats are gathered in thousands, while in the doorways along the narrow streets sit quaintly costumed women, making lace and mending sails. The most striking thing about the Venetian fishing boats is the brilliance and variety of the de Signs upon their sails. Moons and crescents and stars and all sorts of other emblems are scet !n the gaudiest colors. These are to the fisher folk like the coats of arms and emblems of heraldry and are hereditary- in the va rious families. They also serve the ? very practical purpose of letting the good wife know her husband's boat at : a distance, so that she can get his sup- ' per read?.. Chioggia is a city famous in the an nals of Venice. In the fourteenth cen- ' tury when Venice and Genoa, then free | Italian cities, were at war. the navy of: Venice had been defeated, and the Ge- j iiOans at Chioggfa awaited her sur render Thereupon the people of Ven ice were aroused to a pitch of fury such as never had been seen before. The ri? h came and poured their gold in 'he churches for defense until the floors w*re covered, and the poor of- | fered themselves for soldiers. Forty old and outworn galleys were hauled out and repaired and manned. A lead-j er named Pacini, who had been thrown into prison for suffering defeat, was brought out and carried to the fleet on rhe shoulders of the people He sailed to Chioggia in the dead of night. The Genoan fleet lay within the little land oc*ed harbor. Then Pacini, anticipat ing the glory of Hobson bv a few cen turies, sunk two of his galleys in the mouth of the harbor and held the whole Genoese fleet a prisoner. He waited until reinforcements came from \ enlce and then the Genoese fleet was destroyed and the supremacy of Ven ice established. U. S.
