warniu Indeed, iho people of Kltu

thev have been visited. This statement
amf the rimes' which led to tho destruc
tion of the village may ha brieily ev
nlniiied. Tor voars tiait the inhaUt inta
of the Sci'tif Valley have found in tho
extensive alatn nuarries of the Tschin-
(felalp or riuttiitiberjf ono of their chief
Honrccs of revenue. As has already
been stated, the bersr or mountain in
question rides to a height of leveral
Ihoiitand feet just behind what was the
village. It is composed, as thu event
has proved, of a loose, senly material.
ciceediiijily liable to crack and (,'ive

and trenehijoas motmtaiti .lio quarrn
mep et KliirVis;V!i frtiTiter yeara with
out any regard u the laws of science,
or the simplest principles of engineer
ing. Recently they have been more
cautions, but their caution came too
late. In a word, thev cut away the
foundations of the mountain, and at
la.st, as a natural conseiiouce, it has
fallen upon them. That hero waa
some danger of a land-slid from the
I'latU-tibetir his Ioiisj been known i.i
Kltu. Within tho past three or four
mouths slight falls of atoni and mud
have been of frequent occurrence after
heavy rains, yet the people never for a
moment thought of leaving the beauti
ful home to which they were so much uU
taohed, nndeven experts who examined
the mountain senui to have had no idea
of the full extent of the danger to which
they were exposed. !5o, in fancied
security and entire Ignorance of the
awful fate which waa in store for them,
thev lived on.
Meanwhile, the almost unparalleled
rains of summer were slowly but sure
ly completing the work which had been
begun by the thoughtless or ignorant
quarryinea scores of years ajro. Tho
end came on tho evening of Sunday,
September 11 in the "Saints Caieu
!ar,M current in some parts of Swit
zerland, marked "The i'ay of Felix,
Miii:t of luck and happiness." During
the early part of that day, the people
of Elm went about thoir usual vocations
in the usual wav and without any antic
ipation of the terrible calamity which
was so near at hand. Tho little church
was well attended, hearty dinner were
eaten, and afterward, tut was the cus
tom, most of the people, old and
young, walked through the meadows
or upon the mountain side.
At flvi. 1
o clock iu tho evening, while many of j
them were still out in the ticids, some '
one was heard crying: "Look at the !
i'ialtenherg the l'lattetiherg!" Those ;
who followed thu direction and who:
are still alive, say that for a moment it
seemed to them as if every peak above ,
the slate tpiarry was lu motion; then ;
there came a rumbling noise, like far-'
oil" thunder, and in a moment they were j
blinded by clouds of dust. When thoy
could see again they found that agreat !
slice of earlh and stono had td'pped '
down from the Tschiugelalp, burying 1
good land. Men and women were i
line nouses ami covermir acres of
tit the same time seen striiL'!rlii!r
among the ruins, nnd from nil hide
friends', neighbors and relatives hur
ried to their aid.' Unhappily, they hur
ried alo to a terrible death. Even
whilo they were engaged in tneir work
of love the mountain above them
moved again. This time the Hound of
thunder was not far distant, but only ;
too near at nana. Hie pine trees on
tho grassy Mlopes were seen to sink! A '
great cloud of dut and .steam covered j
the whole valley, thousands of ton of ,
stone were liuried through tho air. An :
all-overpowering wnid-presstiro carried I
evert thing beloto it ; there was a hot-!
rible cra-h, a Hound of madly-rushing
torrents; and till waa still. Then the
dust and smoke cleared away, the sun
shone in a cloudless sky, u'ml it wa.s '
Been that, as far as the v.e could reach. !
the once-blooming Sernf Valley was'
covered Willi from fortv to 01m lum. '
dred nnd sixty feet of black stone,
moraine, dirt and slime. Koity dwell-I
lligliouscM, I be best in the village, to
gether with dozens of (.tables and out
building, were buried fur oifl of sight, 1
torn to pieces by the air-pressure, i
strewn broadcast over the moraine. '
One hti'idi'cdjind eleven of the people ',
of Elm were swallowed up ' J'' ii- i

icars nud a mother with two children I
were taken o.tt badly injured, but
alive. Every oilier human being over- 1
taken iu the path of the av.ulaucho was
forever buried out of human sight,
i i let-a lump of torn nnd blooding '
flesh, masses of pnlp without shape or I
form, were tak out- Tho other rest j
in a g'.uve so tlcnii aud Htron that 110 1

fettit. and who are known to have
Joked with each oilier in regard to tho
old siiporatiHoii uhout thirteen at a ta
li' u, were swallowed up as they sat.
On a lonely hi lside, out of tho way of
danger, an old man and woman lived
with their only son. After thu lir.-t
flide of the mountain the father anu .11

who hurried to tho lw'.p oltlnurf.il hers,
mother who would have aaved
their children, lovers who strove to afif
their brides, were together buried in
the awful moraine. It I feared ithat
muny of those who tinve been left be
hind will sharo the fnte of the poor
creature who, mourning a husband and
a son. has gone mod with sorrow.
The extent of the land-slip Is alnio't
beyond belief. To pive anything like
an aic t:ate Idea of it Is no easy task.
It Is no way to be compared to the (ioiden
nlip of lstiii. when, as it will to re
membered. 4-7 people lout their lives.
In tho latter case the mountains slid
down and covered the village. At Elm
a treat mass of the I'lattenberg, a mas
1.500 feet wide, at least 2,000 feet high
above the valley, and. according to the
engineer, from sixty to loO feet deep,
fell over upon the village, its farms,
gardens and meadow. Tons of rock
were dashed entirely across thu valley,
and now rest rpiietfr :MM) and 400 feet
high it Mm IhehilUide. The air-protire
was'so great that houses were lilted up

already stated, the masses of stone and
earth which hav fallen are everywhere
piled up to a height of very many leet.
At least oiio acres are coveted in this
way. The Kivcr Sernf ha made for
itself a new channel through the debris,
and has Hooded and ruined much of the
laud below land which was not direct
ly hit ruled by tho avalanche of tone.
So, in one way or another, the wh'jie
valley has been Injured beyond all hope
of repair. The loss iu property wul
reach not less than '.'.fXtO.tnio francs;
at the lowest estimate HM people have
lost their lives. The Stale Engineers,
fearing further land slides, have for
bidden those who have escaped to re
turn to tho houses which rema n stand
ing, and in consequence mow than 800
men, women and children who, but a
few days ago were prosperous and well-to-do,
are now almost without a roof to
cover them. -A'm, Huiitrlawt) Cor.
