The Aw and Courier today publishes
the following in regard to the recent
earthquakes: There can be no doubt
that the recent wrthquakea had their
origin in I he islands of the Mediterra
nean and in Greece and Italy. On
Angmt 2'.th waa reported the occur
rence ot a destructive earthquake
throughout Greece and Italy: that
there had been two eruptions of Ve
suvius, and that the volcano waa still
eiy ac ive. Thee eruptions gave
vent to the internal commotion which
bad produced the quakinfrof the earth
in that vicinitr, but the shccks being
communica'ed to the earth have trav
eled in var'ous directions, in pome
with mora violence than in otheis, rs
they were felt the name day through
out l',gyp but doing little daniao.
The shocks B' em to have extf mlrd
westward with more rapidity and vol
ume than in any other direction, the
vibrations cl the partic'ea of
the earth's surface being tram -mitted
under the aea at
the rats of about 109 milfs an hour,
occupying about aeventv-two hr-urs tu
traveling a dutsncs of CSliO miles be
fore reaching the wes:ern shores f
the Atlant'c, traveling, rs it did,
aim og'. due weft. One of the first
poinis on the plioro line which it
could reach was the coast ol South
Caralina, but ioa restbat it wai felt
aloog the entire ccast ss far as Bston,
and spread ic osa the cootinent with
diruiuMiing fmce aathe variou, more
aolid and rocky portions of the sur
face retarded tbe .vibrations, uot'l it
seems to bsvs been almost entirely
stopped by friction in the Northwest
ern Elates. The rewon why the
ahrcks were mora v o'eat In the vi
cinity of Charleston and Buutmervl la
is there is more of a soft, yielding na
ture in the sopeifk'ial uppir stra'a
which conducted tbe vibrations, and
the forward movement of tbe earib
waves meeting with leas resistance
than from the hud substinces far her
in tbe interior were more rapid
and jerky, and (hook the
surface with more violence. Tbe pres
ence of tbe innumerable fitsurea ob
servable in the city and country as far
as Bummervllle aod bryond is ac
counted for by tbis same aoft material
ieldiog rapidly to the prcs nre of the
earth waves which pushed np tbe
tbin cru t and squeezed out, ai it were,
the water and eaud subject to tbe
Itretsare. The blue sand and the yel
ow sand thus ejected are found in the
upper stra'a, and that it came f on
. near tbe surface la proven by the fact
that no mirl is fonnd In it and that it
begin l a' Iron s'xty-five to ninety ft et
below the surh.ee and extendi to near
Jy 1100 feet deep. To show s'.lll more
conclusive' that tbe wave motions
wore confined to a very limited depth
beneath tbe snr'aoe, it is only neces
sary to state that none tf tbe shallow,
or 400 ftet artesian walls are at all af
fected, nor is there any change no ice
able in the How or quality of
the water from tbe two doep aiteslaa
wells, as would have bosu tbe ewe
if the cause of tbe eartbqutke had
been local or deep rested. This state
ment of the cominun'catioa ot land
waves to enormous dis ances is fully
verified by the observations ef pre
vious eaithqnakf s tince end even bo
fore tbe Christian era. Tbe absence
of a tidal wava prv conclusively
that the came of the disturbance wai
coc lined to tbe land, and the jerky
motion rommonicated to verst-ls as
reported by their officers wai (aimed
by tbe verticil v brations intermediate
between tbe aold forward ttanFin s
and tbe slower backward joiks.

A TOUKQ ITO-AX ABDUCTED BI
And Kept for Several Days at a Hew
ark, 5. Hotel-A Remark
&iw York, September 2. A special
diepetch from Newark, N. J., tells tbe
following remarkable srory: Several
weeks ago a beautiful Southern woman,
accompanied by he r brother, artived
in tbis city and took rooms at tbe
Ho'el Bristol. Tbe sis'er was abont
25 yars old, a decided brunette, and
a pe-fect type of womanly beauty.
Tbe brother was well dieseed and gen
tlemanly in bis manner. Tbey came
from Savannah, Ga., to sell a piece of
property in Arlington, which they
jointly owned. The eale was made
and tbe b .-other and sister received
$20,000 and divided tbe money, each
taking one-half, and In place cf back
ing tbe funds they kept tbem in their
trunks. The day fullowirg the sale
the eiet?r told her brother tbat she
was going to Uacket etown on a visit.
Tbe brother agreed to rem Ma at tbe
hotel until rhe returned. The young
woman BDOnt a day in the country
and reached Newark (bout sundown.
She wanted a hack to take ber to her
hotel. She met a hacknwn named
Henry Breed tint and entered his
hack. She displayed a well filled
pocket book at tbe time and paid her
fere before entering tbe vehicle-. She
did not reach tbe Bristol Ho'el that
night. From ell that tan be learned
CHL0ROF0EMED HER, ,
tr.oz her to a Newark hotel and kept
her there several days until tbe land
lord ie'Ognised him and sent him
about bis businees. The fellow bad
been spendirg money very freely, the
smallest bill be exhibited being a
twenty. Capt. Donovan, the lai diotd
of the Neaark bete', bad just dis
covered who tbe man was when
tbe girl's brother entered the hotel,
and mutual exp'auatiocs followed.
'1 he two men immediately rushed
up stairs to the room occupied by
Sueedn and bis al.'eged w fa. Ti e
sight that met their eyes was s artbng.
Ou tbe bed was tbe almost nude b dy
of the insensible woman. The bro her
at once knew bis sitter atd could hard
ly govern bs rage. The ut fortunate
Woman wes nnder a physician's care
at tbe ho'el for three days aft.-r the ex
posure; then she was strong enough to
be removed. Bef oie the It ft ehe told,
ss well as she could, tbe whole etory.
She described ber trip to Hsckeits
town and ber return to Newark. She
engaged Sneede to t ke her to tbe
hotel, and paid him in edvaoce. She
was exhausted, and after getting ioto
the hack aeked Nre. ds to boy her a
glaess 1 1 wine. She draok the wine,
and all tbat she remembers at te r that
is the hack etoppir g snd pu'tinj a col
ored man on the box and taking a seat
beside ber. Sie drank tbe w ne and
wa qiite confident that a locg ride
followed, but she became to sleepy
tbat she was
CBulVIGUS TJ kVBBTTniSQ.
She next rea'is-sd tbat shs was lying
on a bed, and that some one as p j -ing
ber with drinks. She ats nothing
for dys, and was tortured witb a
bnrnitg tbiret. It was several days
before the 'ady recovered her rea oa.
Her pocket book was found under her
P'llow, and the money wes jubt $170
short. The woman raid ehe remember
ed, in a vague sort of way, giving eome
man money at various time, but she
does not .remember receiving any
change. Whenever a drink was offer
ed she was asked f r mmey, and she
mechanically took a bill from her
wallet without looking at it or know
ing lbs denomination. Tbe third r'ay
alter finding his slater the brother took
ber away and they s'arted to
gether for Savannah. Sne. ds this
morning trembiirg'y admitted tin
truth of the stoiy. He will be
wathd an il tbe return of the
brother frim Savannah, when he will
doubtlo-s be a-reBtsd. The tames of
the woman snd ths brother ere at
FTeesnt withhe d by the authorities,
t seems that Sneedo sent the, wom
an's satchel to F. W. Munn's livery
stable, at No. 74 Chestnut s'reet. This
ta'chel cou'aired tbe money received
in thi sale ot the Arling'on property.
Serde did net know tbat a', tbe time.
Toe satchel was restored to the
brother thrcurh Caor. Donovan. It

'Tried in the Crucitle.
Abont twenty years ago I discovered a little toro oa mjr check, and the doctora pro
nonnced It cancer. I have tried a number of physicians, bnt without receiving any perma
nent benefit. Among the nimbor were one or two ppecinllats. The medicine tney applied
was like fire to the sore, causing intense pain. I saw a statement in tho papera telling what
S. 8. S. had done for others similarly afflicted. I procured some at once. Before ( had used
the second bonk tho nclgtbora could notice tbat my cancer waa healing up. Hy general
health had been baa foi tvaor three years 1 baa a hacking cougn ana ppit b!oct contin

me and 1 grew etouter than I bail been for Btjvcrul years. My cancer liae healed over all but
a little spot about the size of a hnir dime, and it Ia rupidly disappearing, i would advise
every one with cancer to givo ti. S. t. a fuir trial.
