AiHenturr* of a Slav«* Girl Only Sittnn Y«nm Ohl. i F ruin the Kiui«a< City Times.I fc I was born at Nashville, Tenu, " said Matti * Young, "and. though I ant mi ni 1* to count or to reckon time, I think 1 must be about 16 years old. When I v. s Noniethii g more than a year old I was stolen by liobiuson's circus. They made a dancing girl of me, and I got so J w :s tv good performer. Wo weut to (' dm fin tll.v. and after I laid been with t ein air u" seven years, I should think, J its put up for aale on the block at i I va tv* 1 1 on ry < « rannison, who ow . s .( !••«• plantation about eight miles trn n Ifavaua, bought me, and 1 went tt* his place a- his slave. They have no jn. iv on their slaves in Cuba, and I v tVi ii'i d lil t* a brute. When I first went Piere I vas branded on the back with eighteen names, and as often as the «cars would dim T was branded again. The name« were Spanish, and include , the name of my master and his slav« «. "I was made to plow like a horse. Thev w>ul l hitch three women in har ne s*. and make us drag the plow along on of us carrying a regular bit in the mouth! The food they gave us con listeil of oats, dogs, and grasshoppers, a.t 1 they made us pick tobacco worms a d eat't'ioin i.to. We were sometimes w ..ipped as often as three times a day, a .d we never knew what Sunday was. -Two mouths ago, while I was at the I .ca . of inv master, one of tin* little •cm got mail and declared I had i. r. Ti ev yvouldn't hear any in g l s id, a d told me the Queen laid o d r» »1 my throat to lie eut. I l. ( »1 f r tune to pray, and they gave m. . il. the *;»*vt morning. In Cuba o ir go i is a big snake we eall Sarah, a id we pray t»* P for mercy. I believed I would*he killed, for I had heard ot staves having their throats cut, and I 1 ad been struck on the head yvitli knives before. So that evening I pla .m d to run away. I got a life-pre servur from a ship where 1 wn* sent to carry coal. When night came 1 put the life-pn server avouud me, climbed over the yvall, and jumped into the ocean. 1 yvas a good swimmer ami wasu't afraid. But the Cuban . soldiers beard me splashing in the water and they begau firing at me. The first ball struck me in the thigh, the next hit my foot, and before they quit shooting they hit me •even times. My arms were not hurt, though, and 1 kept on swimming. Finally I reached an island, and I *Wyed there fire weeks, living on whatever I could. My wounds hurt me terribly, but as they hurt me worst* ou laud than in the salt water I kept my bfe-proserver on, anil swam along the shore of the island most of the time. At the end of five weeks a ship eamo along lxiund for Galveston, and I yvas taken aboard. When we reached Galveston 1 yvas put in the hands of some colored church people, ami. as I had heard that my mother lived in Nashville, 1 was sent there. At Nash ville 1 found that my mother had gone, they said, to Kansas City, ayid so I got elp to come here." CYCLONIC OUTBURSTS.

It is true that man ma mar a » limate as yvell as mend one. H disluri s the rain all by uuduly cut ting »town the forests, thereby produ cing a t» mations of drought and flood. B* t in other instances the cultivation of i soil appears to ameliorate the -tdi a ; • and Nature grows more kindly aft n :*it fulfills his mission to "sub di c tii<* earth." We seem on tlie \» rge of learning liow to dis ant! 1 e so ; <jf its fury. It is one of the str i igest - yve ni ght say the oldest — »I s over os of modem times that the eve .ted wave which seams irresistible in it U n-»* loses all it terror and much of its i o,Y. r yvheu e: countering a film of oil. Wüi'ii the storm threatens to me yv lui the ship the skipper lias me cly to fetch up his oil can, and, though the yyiml «•ontinues to howl and shriek through the rigging, the waves ave powere s und r the oleaginous film. It is too much to exf ect that the wild wind' »rill ever be subject to hu man contre; alter thi fash ion, except by some long-ismfinui'd occult process un conseio :.*-lv cairieil out. It would be n strange result, and yet it seems apos sibility, that man will be stifle to meet tlie storm more successfully at son than on land. More probably, as popu lation in these Slates become more dense, and the consequent danger of di-ast«*r is increased, men will adopt a nn*»l<' of bniiiliug suited to the necessi ties »*f the cas.*, as the Swiss have done in the ease of the i*y ahuiche. There is, ho we* er, a favorable element in the problem, even if mat ers should not improve.
