startled by a distant rumbling noise,
when In the twinkling of an eye,
houses began to shake, the earth rolled
and confusion generally was rampart.
People rushed from their houses in
mortal fear,' some yelled fire i others
murdeki It was a scene of the greatest
awe and confusion. This shock lasted
certainly thirty -seconds ' striking
terror to the bravest -hearts. It was
the strangest sensation imaginable.
With all the noise and -confusion, the
earth quaking under the feet, the

more serious results from each sue

everything was quiet, and the people

mainutes later there was another almost
