A Lively Voyage.
Special by The U-iitkd Press.
New York, Oct. 20. A story is in
circulation here to-day of the strange
and startling experience of the steam
ship Umuria on her trip to this port.

strange experience, but it is thought
that the Umbria was caught in a
small waterspout, generated during
