At Home the Outlaws Are Highly l!t-

From the San Frnnctsco Examiner.
It Is now nearly ten. jears since tho
Greek government determined to take
strenuous im-asurei. for the suppression of
brlRiindage, which has flourished for cen.
turies in the little realm. Yet it had not
bti n possible for the government, with a
cumpnnuhely larsre sized aimy and secret
anil lnunirlnal tmllce in nt.nnlienri I h
I daring robbers and outlaws. The reason
fur this failure is partly due to the sya-
j tern Cf espionage which the brigands them.
oh is maintain in. the army und police,
but, above all, to the native shrewdntsa
an 1 diplomacy w hlcft they exercise in
thilr dealings TMth the people among
whom they reside. Strange as It may
!( m. thise men are highly respect, d nnd
Knatl feared In their own towns, nnd
1 tiny an rely upon their townsmen, jea,
tM'n upon the municipal authorities, for
protection, notwithstanding that the latter,
who are expected to arrest and punish
1 rlminals, are wcil aware of the. r nefarious
v atlon. The brigand constitute the best
ru-ioRicrs 01 tne merchants, and IBey ure
literal to the poor. As regards the city
1 fa tliers, they ax-1 not overvirluous, and
bi'bi-ry la not such a heinous oCeuae in
ijr. e'e,
N.-ither force nor strategy could tvail
against the diplomatic highwaymen. Fi
nally the K'- eminent determined to
tnlopt dtfferent tactics airainst them. It
was learned that there often reigned great
Jealousy between the different bands aod
also internal fVuds btwetn the leaders
and the men. fclo tt was thought Wisest to
set a price on the heads of the so-calh d
captains of the bare-ls. This had tho d.
blred effect. Not that the extermination
was a rapid one, but gradually during the
decade one leader afir the other has been
caught and their bands dissolved, so that
but one or two remain to this da,v.
In each case It was found that the re
ward was paid to bithtr one of the, nub
oidlnate brigands belonging lo the band
whose leader was apprthnded or to one
or two members of a lival organization.
In no case did any of the (ownsmt-n of a
brigand captain betray him. Un the con
trary, his fellow citizens put all pubslbla
obstacles In the way of government of
ficers. Thi. Interference on the part of
the townsmen may be aserlbid to the 1 "o
verbl.il conviviality of the criminals,, who
made tln-mstlves exceedingly popular with
the people among whom ttiey IItJ. Thy
nuver robbed any of their own penpk,
but conducted their operations far fiom

What Ii
r.eft of It it I'unnil
of the llrnln.
In tho Center
Tram Popular Science.
Man tend nil higher nnlmnls have two
eyes nnd two on. All mammals, birds,
reptile, nmphlbla nnd fishes have this
number of eves. Cvcn there animals which
from time immemorial have lived In ab
solutely dark much have two eyes. In
many of such animals, however, tho eyes
have been overgiown by the skin, so that
these eyes now would be usele-s for vision,
even if the ntilm.il should come from Its
subtetranenn home to the light of day. The
Mime Is true of several snecles of burrow
ing nnlmnls of the mole and mouse tribes.
Indeed, nil tho vertebrate animals have two
ecs. whether they use them or not.
Not all animals have these two eyes sym
metrically placed In the head, one on each
side. Certain ilshes which apparentl swim
on the side, such as the turbot, have both
eves on one, the dark Eido of their heads.
That this Is not due to a simple twist of
the held has been demonstrated by Profes
sor Steenthrup moro than twenty years
At times, by what Is termed arrested de
velopment, animals and even human be
ings, appear as cyclop", or having one ee
only. Hut who ever heard of a third eye
In man or beast? And et recent research
es prove thnt man and all vertebintcs seem
to posses the rudiments of a third eye.
This dl-eovery Is not only veiy interest
ing, but nlso remarktibly Instructive, since
the rudimentary third eye of man hub.
by one of the most noted philosophers of
modern days, been looked upon as being
the seat of the soul
As oigans by proper use develop in
strength and perfection, so they become
weak by lack of use. If for many genera
tions un organ should remain without
u-e, Its Mructure In time becomes Kimpler
and more Imperfect. If such a process
continues throughout ages, nn organ, by
constant disuse, will become reduced to n
nieie rudiment of what It was In the spe
cies using the same. Thus, species of
birds that only wnlk and run, but never
fly, hnve only rudimentnry wings, as the
ostrich; while In the eagle and the alba
tros tho wings are teen in a state of per
fection. Now, In cloely examining the fktills of
certain lizards, it wus found thnt near the
top of the head, under the dark, opaque
skin, and oftc.n in tho very bone, an almost
perfect eye exists, though no ray of light
ever could reach lt.
This eve shows a crystalline lens, a
retina of very complex Mructure, nnd an
optic nerve: in fact, nil the essential pints
of a perfect eye. Hut being covered by
tho opaque skin of the animal, It Is abso
lutely useless.
If this optic nerve Is traced to the brain.
It Is found to connect the eo with the so
called pineal gland of the btaln. This pin
eal gland 1, of course, but a definite por
tion of the nervous tlsue of the lire In,
Invariably located Just back and pai tiy
over tho cerebrum, and in front of tho
rounded brain mass which gcnctnllv la con
sidered to corre-pond to tho corpora quad
ricemlnn in man.
This third eye of the spotted lizard 1s
called thu pineal eye, on account of the
nerve connection of Its retina with tho
plnenl gl ind.
Now, -while In certain lizards this hlchly
developed cyo Is uceleba because it Is cov
ered by nn opaque skin, nnd In others oven
deeply bedd. d in bone. It would seem prob
able that In nn earlier stage of develop
ment this pineal e0 was not rudlmentiuv,
but In toni-taiit life. A very flight molli
fication would nceomptMi this: nutni ly, the
trans-patency of tho skin coveting the eye,
TI1I1. is exactly the condition of tho normal
i'S" In reptiles to-dny; tho !:ln covers
them but it Is transparent whero It cov
eis the eye.
In the skulls of some of the gigantic rep
tiles of the curlier ngo of this globe, pale
ontologists have long ngo found a large,
round perforation, I'lobably this wns the
socket nf the third, or pineal eve, of tho
lehthyo'nurus, the pienlo-nurus, and the lab
iinthodon. Hut 11. much moro importnnt conclusion
muKt be drawn from this discovery, name
ly, thnt In nil vertebrates, even including
man, tho tiaces of this third eye re main
to-dny. Tho p'neal eje of Hzntds being
c inuei ted with the largo pineal gland of
tho ram, it would reetn that the plnenl
glnnd Itself Is but tlm nerve center or op
tV thalmus for this third evo In nil rep
tiles and iimpblbla, tho pineal gland Is
large; fo It ts al"o In fishes.
In hlfther nnlmnls, the rerebrnm divelopt

din ed In an otherwise reapcctabli) body of
philosophy, by this position of Ihe pineal
gland, the Zirbcl druese of the (Jermans.
The great philosopher, Hestartis, spent
most of hts time during tho winter of ICO.
3t) in anatomical studies nt Amsterdam.
Here lie probably made cloko examinations
of the human brain, and was struck with
this peculiarity of tho jilin al gland. In
Ills philosophical systtm, he loc-atisl the

Hi refers to the pineal gland.

stars were still lu the bkv and the sun
was within tlireo hours of Hooding tho
