SPRECKELS, Vice President and Treasurer The Man Who Tried to Be Avenged on Napoleon | He Tackled a Big Job When He Took the "Mona Lisa"—And jj the Precedents Were All Against Him Leonardo de Vinci's "Mona Lisa," the most famous painting in the world, has been found again: this time, it is declared, the gen uine painting, which was stolen from the Louvre in Paris in 1911, has been recovered in Florence and will be returned to the French government. The public has become skeptical of stories concerning this famous and mysterious painting, but for purposes of meditation we may consider that the real masterpiece has been ieturned, and listen for a moment to the explanation of the thief: "I was ashamed," he said, "that for more than a century no Ital ian has thought of avenging the spoilation committed by Frenchmen under Napoleon, when they carried off Italian museums and gal leries, pictures, s...

White Hopes Will Be Public Nuisances So Long as the Public Pays to See Them NEWS WRITTEN BY LEADING EXPERTS' Slattery's Spikes SOME of the fans are of the opinion that wrangling over weights and the division of purses hefore ring matches 3tc made gener ally lead to good results and help boost the game along. But they are wrong. The game does not want that sort of boosting; in fact, the lighters make their mistakes when they start to shout and quarrel and squabble and announce how much money they have and how much they must get before they will fight. It's not at all in line with the policy of good, clean sport; and if they keep on as they are going at the present time, evil results are soon to follow. • * * BOXING is a good, honest, clean sport when it is properly con ducted as it is right here in San Francisco and throughout Cali fornia.

This includes only deciduous fruits—cherries, apricote, peaches, plums, pears, grapes and mis cellaneous fruits of the trees that shed their leaves. The citrus shipments are not included, neither are the canned goods, nor dried, nor other agricultural products of the state.
