Robley D. Evans, commanding the

twenty-two persons were buried under
thousands of tous of clay and quick- *

overwhelmed the northeastern part of t

Rockland street, for a distance of five i

upon which it stood. This for years '

$200,000 worth of clay was dumped
iuto their pits. (
The whole town is built on a huge r
clay-hank, and the principal industry
of the place is brickmaking. The top 1
layer of ground is sand about thirty J
feet deep. Tlsen comes a stratum of j
fairly soft clay, such as is used for
brickmaking. This is about? forty feet
thick. Beneath this is a soft, blue s
sand mixed with clay, of the consistency
of mortar and about thirty feet
For years the brickmakers had been j
digging away at the clay bank below
Rockland street in such a manner, that
they had practically undermined that ^
part of the village above.
The lowest stratum of soft clay and
sand slid out, and the tons of clay and
sand above settled straight down. At jj
the same time the so;'t mass of clay c
and sand lowest down rose up like a fc
great geyser, and, falling, Bettled over i
the entombed part of the village. S
A great fissure was seen in the ground
at the end of Rockland street at 4 j,

was settling. Some persons ]eft their J

parts, about fifteen minutes apart, accounts
for the fact that the lives lost
are not counted in hundreds. ?
Now a dozen houses, from which the
tenants have fled, are standing on the
brink of the abrupt declivity into
which they will sink with other slides
which are bound to come. For three
blocks around the danger zone houses
have been deserted. The ground is
honeycombed with great Assures, and

There was a consultation among the 1
people living at the edge of the bank.

was the kitchen, where roots and k
herbs were steeped on the stove,
gradually filling a gross of bottles.
Then came the question of selling
it, for always before they had given
it away freely. They hired a job
printer to run off some pamphlets
setting forth the merits of the medicine,
now called Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and these were
distributed by the Pinkham sons in
Boston, New York, and Brooklyn.
The wonderful curative properties of
the medicine were, to a great extent,
self-advertising, for whoever used it
recommended it to others, and th4 demand
gradually increased. ,
In 1877, by combined efforts the family
had saved enough money to commence
newspaper advertising and from
that time the growth and success of
the enterprise were assured, until today
