FOUR THOUSAND PEOPLE
PERISH BY AN EARTH
Terrible Calamity at an Italian
NAPLES, July 30.— Professor Pal-;
mieri, Director of the Meteorologk' 1 j
Observatory on Mount Vesuvius, 1
states that the disaster on the Island
of Ischia, on Saturday night, was not ,
due to an earthquake, but to a subsi
dence of the ground. The scenes here
occasioned by the accident were heart
rending. The hospitals are crowde.l
with wounded survivors ; and the dead
houses are filled with the dead bodies
of the victims. The bodies of several
Neapolitan ladies have been recovered
from the ruins. Ten houses remain
standing at Casamicciola. Cries for
help can be heard coming irom the
ruins. Sappers are hfcrd at work en
deavoring to rescue persons still alive.
Boats from the island filled with dead
bodies are arriving hero constantly.
Many women and children were
among the victims. Fifty wooden huts
will be built immediately for the ac
commodation of the survivors. The
muncipal authorities at Naples are
sending relief to the island and doing
all in their power to alleviate the dis
tress of the people. Most of the corp
ses recovered were so discolored by
dirt that even after they had been
washed they were unrecognizable.
All the members of the police force
at Casamicciola were killed. A boat
has arrived at Naples containing the
bodies of twenty-four infants. A few
persons were taken from the ruins aliye
last evening. Eight hundred more
troops went to the scene of the disaster
last night. It is now stated that the
number of persons killed was 2,000 and
the number of wounded 1,000.
TIIIRTY PEOPLE ENTOMBED.
Survivors say thirty-seyen persons
were entombed in a room in Hotel
I'iccalo Sentinella. Couut Sergardi,
after three hours' exhausting labor,
rescued eleven persons, but failed to
accomplish tho principal object of his
efforts, the saving of his sister. The
play at the theatre on Saturday night
was a burlesque, which opened with
scenes representing an earthquoke.
FOUR THOUSAND PERISH.
It is stated ascertain that four thou
sand persons perished on the Island of
Ischia on Saturday night. The stench
fromthedead bodiesof human beinirsand
animals is almost unbearable. Several
men aud women were rescued from the
ruins on Monday morning. Many
more might have been saved if a larger
force of rescuers had been available
earlier. Many persons who were heard
groaning during the night were dead
before they could be reached, and car
ried to places of safety.
The Roman newspapers appeared to
day with mourning borders. Many of
the people injured in Ischin will be
cripples for life.
The dead a Forio number three hu -
dred, at Laccoamino five hundred, at
Fontanaserrora two hundred. Twen
ty-four children perished in Mesericor
AID FOR THE SUFFERERS.
The King and Queen of Italy sub
scribed 100,000 lire, aud the Pope 25,000
lirefor the relief of sufferers.
ONE THOUSAND LIVES BAVEI).
Two thousand soldiers digging in
the ruins saved 1,000 liyes up to mid
day Sunday, aud exhumed twenty-four
persons alive on Monday.
SCENE OF THE CATASTROPHE.
The inhabitants of Casamicciola are
principally peasants, who cultivate the
grape. The town has nearly five thou
sand inhabitants, and is also much
patronized by tourists and invalids,
who go there to 1 .ko tho waters. Its
baths are largely frequented by suf
ferers with lung disorders and skin dis
eases, and there is always a throng of
visitors at the hotels Hellevue and La
(Iran Sentinella. In tho days of the
Roman Umpire the baths were in high
repute, and their fame has descended
to modern times. In the summer time
invalids from all countries take the
boats from Naples, which run several
times a day, and land at a little har
bor distant about a mile from tho town
and thence proceed on donkey back to
A FAVORITE RESORT.
Tho town is the smallest one on tho
island of Ischia, but it is tho favorite
retort. Fiore, the largest town, has a
population of 8,000. Then comes
Ischia with 6,100 aud Casamicciola
with between four and five thousand.
The view from tho mountain is
especially fine. The scenery is pictur
esque, rocky crags and streamlets and
hillsides covered with vines adding to
the natural beauty of the place. The
blue waters of the Gulf of Naples, wilh
fishing boats darting hero and there,
wash the shore of tho island; and in
the distance may ho seen the mainland,
dotted with whitewashed villas and
surrounded by groves and vineyards.
Ischia is certainly of volcanic origin.
Its coasts are steep and rocky. Near
its centre is the volcana Kpornco, 2,500
feet above the sea. There are also
twelve smaller volcanoes. Tho inter
vening valleys are of extraordinary
fertility, producing corn, wine aud
Iruits in abundance. The Castle of
Ischia stands 011 a high isolated rock of
volcanic tufa and ashes.
THE LAST EARTHQUAKE.
In March, 1881, Casamicciola was
partially destroyed by an earthquake.
The shock lasted seven seconds. It
was accompanied by a uoiso like s
terrancan thunder. Then came the
crash of falling houses, mingling with
the shrieks of victims. Mothers were
found with infants still clinging to their
hrcastu. At the Villa Caoimetti two
girls, who were playing on a door-step,
were struck dead by the falling archi
trave. Two hundred houses were
thrown dowu and many others were
1 damaged and made uninhabitable. The
loss of life was not nearly so large as
on this occasion, but more than a hun
dred men, women and children perish
ed. About three hundred people were
The panic spread through the whole
island. Steamers were sent from
Naples with physicians, nurses and
medical supplies. A detachment of
military also was ordered to the spot
and did admirable .:rvice. The popu
lation tied in terror to the surrounding
country and along the sea coast.
It was first supposed the disaster w as
connected with the partial eruption of
A'esuvius, which occurred two days be
fore. But Professor Palmieri stated
that siesmographic instruments gave
no indications, whence he was inclined
to think that the catastrophe was due
to some local phenomenon, possibly to
a sudden sinking ot the ground through
subterranean cc rosion, caused by con
tinued working of mineral waters.
Shortly before the [6rst shock of the
earthquake mineral springs were ob
served to be in a state of ebullition.
TIE EARTHQUAKE OF 1828.
Another earthquake occurred at Casa
micciola in February, 1828. A 9 the
morning broke Vesuvius sent forth
smoke, flame and stones, but the springs
in the Campagna gave no indications,
as they usually do, before an eruption.
Their temperature remained unchang
ed, although seven hours previously
slight quakings occurred at several
places in the Kingdom of Naples.
Suddenly, at fifteen minutes after 10 A.
M., three loud explosions wero heard on
the coasts of Casamicciola as if they
came from beneath upward, or from the
interior of the Eporneo volcano out
ward. In three seconds a fatal un
dulatory shock came, laying a part of
the town in ruins and killing a number
OTHER FAMOUS EARTHQUAKES.
Casamicciola is in one of the two
great earthquake zones, the other dis
trict being the western portion of South
America. In no century since the
earliest recorded history has Southern
Italy and Sicily escaped sutiering from
frequent and severe earthquakes. In
Sicily, in 1 (>93, (<O,OOO people perished
in one rthquake. During the reign
of Tiberius, 16 A. I)., 120,000 people
lost their lives in one day in conse
quence of an earthquake. The earth
quake attended with the most serious
results in the destruction of human life
was that of 536, when 250,000 human
beings perished, according o Gibbon's
figures. Andoch, which had previous
ly been destroyed at least twice, and
several other Syrian cities, were com
pletely destroyed, and the shock ex
tended into Italy, where great damage
to life and property resulted. In 63
Herculaneum and Pompeii wero de
stroyed by an earthquake, this being

The most famous earthquake of his
tory was that at Lisbon, Nov. 1, 1755,
when 40,000 people were buried alive
and 30,000 more were killed. Calabria,
Me ssini, and a number of smaller vil
lages were destroyed February 5, 1783,
and some 100,000 lives were lost. In

awful one, The curtain hud just risen
when a tremendous shock wan felt. A
fearful roar followed, and the ground
rocked like a sea in aHtorm. A great
cry of terror arose among the audience
who were thrown into a Leap and u
large number were buried beneath the
timbers of the building, which fell upon
them. Two more shocks occurred.
All who could rushnd outside the thea
ter, und hundreds clambered into the
trees in the vicinity for safety. Most of
the people, however, eseapod to the
shore, where bonfires were lighted as
signals of distress. Hundreds of half
nuked men and women, wild with ter
ror und xrief, ran to und fro oinong
the ruins with torches during the night
searching for missing friends.

BURIAL OF THE DEAD.
Burials of the victims of the earth
quake continued throughout the day.
Two hundred and eighty bodies were
buried at Casamicciola, ninety atL&cco
and twenty-nine at Forio. The latest
estimate places the number of deaths at
between four and five thousand. As it
would be impossible to recover and
bury all the bodies, Genala, Minister of
Public Works, has ordered that in view
of the horrible exhalatious from the de
composing remains uurecovered the
corp&es be left where they lie and liquid
lime be poured over the ruins made by
the earthquake. Casamicciola will
thus be converted into a vast cemetery.
VESUVIUS IN ERUPTION.
Mount Vesuvius is in a state of
eruption. Lava is descending from
the crater in the direction of the town
of Torre-Del-Greco, at the southwest
foot of the mountain. The inhabitants
are fleeing to places of safety.
HUNTING THE'R FRIENDS.
The latest advices from Casamicciola
say a number of English and Ameri
cans arrived there in search of friends
and relatives, supposed victims of the
calamity. An American lady reports
her aunt missing, and it is feared she is
buried in the ruins. One family was
rescued after being thirty-six hours en
tombed. Of a Swiss family named
Pascil, numbering eight, only one
daughter survives. She states she
heard her father groaning several hours
before she herself was rescued. The
Syndic states that 1,000 are dead at
Lacco, 1,000 at Eario, and 2,500 at
Casamicciola. The total of deaths is
placed at 5.000. The damage to prop
erty is two million lire. Shocks of
earthquake were felt at Wiesbaden.
Fift3en hundred tons chloride of lime
were used at Casamicciola during the
day for deodorizing purposes, hut the
steuch in the upper town is still un
bearable. Water gushed violently out
of a spring again to-day. It was al
most boiling hot. A slight shock was
felt on Monday night. Two guards
were killed. The military prevent the

A Horso Choked by a Snake.
From the Klmira Advertiser.
Superintendent Lyon, of the Barclay
Coal Mines, was in the city on Wed
nesday, and told an A<hu;rlift;r reporter
tho follovviog snake story, the authen
ticity of which, he said, could be vouch
ed for by several reliable citizens : "Qn
Tuesday last a boy was engaged in
plowing ou the farm of M man named
Wilkinson, between Greenwood and
Monroeton, in Bradford county, when
he saw an enormous black snake lying
stretched along on the ground near the
fence. Frightened by tho reptile tho
boy dropped the line and started on a
run for the house. Reinforced here by
several members of the family he went
back, when one of the horses was found
lying on the ground with the python
tightly coiled about his neck. The
snake was dispatched, when it was
found that, the horse was dead, his life
having been choked out by the snake.
Col. Ingersoll avoids stating his
belief as to the existence of God. He

After 33 years in this living tomb he
wrote in his bible the following: In the
bible the word Lord is found 1,853
times, the word Jehova 5,845 times,
and the word "reverend" but once, and
that in the 9th verse of the CXlth
Psalm. The Bth verse of the CXVIIth
Psalm is the middle verse of the bible.
The 9th verse of Yllth chapter of
Esther is the longest verse; 35th verse,
Xlth chapter of St. John is the short
est. In the CVIIth Psalm four verses
are alike, the Bth, 15th, 21st and 31st.
Each verse of the CXXXVIth Psalm
ends alike. No names or words with
more than six syllables are found iu
the bible. The XXXYIth chapter of
Isaiah and XlXth chapter of 2d Kings
are alike. The word "girl" occurs but
once in the bible, and that in the 3d
verse and Illd chapter of Joel. There
are found in both books of the bible 3,-
556,483 letters, 773,693 words, 31,373
verses, 1,189 chapters and 66 books.
The XX Ylth chapter of the Acts of
the Apostles is the finest chapter to
read. The most beautiful chapter in
the bible is the XXIIId Psalm. The
four most inspiring promises are John
XlYth chapter and 2d verse, John
Ylth chapter and 37th verse, St. Mat
thew Xlth chapter and 38th verse, and
XXXYIIth Psalm, 4th verse. The
Ist verse of LXth chapter of Isaiah is
the one for the new convert. All who
flatter themselves with vain boastings
of their perfectness should learn the
Ylth chapter Matthew.
Learn a Trade.
