i THOUSANDS AKE KILLED.
Kuchnn Visited for tho Second Time
by a Torxlflc Earthquake.
On January 20 tho London Timos
had a despatch from Toliorau, tho I
capital of Persia, stating that tho !
1 town of Kuchau, in tho province of
Khurasan, which was doalroyod by
an onrthnuako fourtcon mouths ago j
and which was subsequently rebuilt,
was again destroyed by an oarth
nuako shock on Thursday last.
Tlioro was as on tho previous occa-I
sion groat loss of life. One hundred
women who wore in a bathhouse
wore crushed to death by tho falling
building. The weather was intensely
cold and this increased the sufferings '
of tho survivors whoso houses woro '
Four distinct shocks worn felt at
! Meshed within three days. Xono of
I these shocks, however, woro of stilll
, cieut strength to do any damage.
Kuchan lies at the foot of tho Shah
i Jahau Kuh, a mountain 11,000 foot
' In height. Tho town, which is about
eight miles northwest of Meshed, is
8300 feet abovo sea level. It is, or
was, an important place, being on
tho route to Shirvau.
Tho population prior to tho oarth-
quako of 181)3, which destroyed ovory
I houso in tho placo, was botweou 20,-
1 000 and 25,000. The otlicial report
' of tho disaster places tho number of
porsous killed at 12,000. Fitty thou
sand head of cattle have perished in
tho valley at tho head of which
Kuchan is situated. From Novem
ber 7th to 27th tlioro woro 127 dis
tinct shocks. It was tho first shock
that destroyed tho town.
On November 17, 1803, Kuchau
and Meshod, towns in Northern Per
sia, woro destroyed by an earthquake
and thousands of the inhabitants
perished. Kuchau had a population
of from 20,000 to 2.",,000. Tho shock
of tho earthquake opened up great
crovicos in tho oarth, through which
tho water llowed in torrents, causing
tho Alrok river to overflow its banks.
The fertile region surrounding the
city was inundated aud largo gar
doun and extensive vineyards woro
swept out of existence.
Tho people of Kuchau had no
chance to savo anything. Tho
largest houses in town, including
tho residonco of tho Governor, were
topplod over, crushing hundreds of
people to death. Many parsons woro
carried away by tho flood that flow
ed down tiie valley. A short time
aftor tho disturbance tho entire
water supply of Kuchau disap
peared. Moshod, tho city which was de
stroyed by tho same disturbance,
had a population of 00,000. It was
famous as tho site of tho mausoleum
of Imam Itcza, one of tho most mag
nificent in Persia.
THEY COME HOME.
Au Oflicor of tho Philadelphia Ho
joicos ut Beinf; in Parndlso.
"Dr. Wiuslow, Fleot SnrRoon, is
one of the hnppioflt oilicers of tliu
HaKsliip IMiilaoolphia over his re
turn to Honolulu. Ho told a 15um.k
tin man with glee last night that
his wife and two children would be
here by tho Alameda. He said it
made him feel like coming homo
when the ship was ordered to Hono
lulu, aud he felt aud said to friends
that there woro moro people in Ho
nolulu who would receive hi in hon
estly aud truly than there would in
ids own town. "And Mrs. Winslow,"
you may say iu your paper, "said she
was glad to come back to Honolulu
for the sake of putting tho children
in Punahou school. Thank CSod we
come homo aud this is home."
On being asked tho cause of t fin
long passage or tho llng.ship, IJr.
Winslow replied Mint tliu vessel had
beeu Ave months, since coming out
of the dry dock, in still water (it
Mare Island Navy Yard, and her
hull had bocome encrusted with
barnacles. As tho orders were to
proceed to Honolulu witu all haste,
tho Admiral could uot detain tho
ship to be docked for cleaning.
When she left San Francisco the sky
was dull and leaden and lowery. At
first she passed through a belt of
comparatively smooth water, aud
thou struck a terribly rough boll.
In all tho doctor's thirty-two years'
experjoiico iu tho navy ho had novor
experienced more boisterous Boas.
The waves were sixty feet high and
they broke over tho bows of the
Philadelphia with great fury. For
21 hours tho Philadelphia labored
iu this bolt, ami was not long across
it buforo she encountered another
almost equally rough.
It was hoped that tho Philadel
phia would reach Honolulu before
the Oceaniu Steamship Company's
S. S. Australia, but tho Australia
had a double advantage iu making
her superior passage. She had come
off tho dry dock with a clean hull on
Saturday, loaded on Suuday ami
sailed at 10 o'clock Monday. She
did not find the stormy belt so
broad or so boisterous as had the
Philadelphia. Dr. Winslow had
equipped himself with a prodigious
lot of lato newspapers for his friouds,
in anticipation of bringing the latest
news, but now ho would throw them

Hood's Sarsapurilla. Abovo all it

Six years of actual uso in exterior

tliu burning heat of tho Arizona Des

practically shown that Lucol always
outwears Linseed Oil under tho same

Break up lij lbs. pasto whilo lead

Spread tho paints on similar dark
surfaces for comparison. Tho Lucol
paint spreads its far as and covers
much better than tho Linseed paint.
To got equally good covering with the
Linseed paint you have to use 2 lbs.
of white lead to one pint of Linseed
Oil. This means a having of j lb. of
