Contributions of Money Still Tour ing la From New York Sensational Scenes. Charlsstok, 8. O., September 4 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. last mom's SHOCK has greatly iaipiired conilionce.

The Charlestoniaa sets great f tore by tbe hooee in which he was born, witb all of its assocat onr. Today an Episcopalidn larty, whose husband is certainly rulnea by tbe cataat'ophe, said, "I could read it all if St. Michae s hed been spared. My grand parents were ho h baptized and married there, and witbin its walls I, to, was marritd." Tbis feeling for old St. Michaels is qu te general, even among these who are not Episcopa liaup. The old building was a pait of tbe family trad tions of the State, and as such was claimed by everybody.

If an eqirnoC'ii' gala of usual eeve'ity should strike the c'ly before consider able repir cas be made, nearly every home in the city would be blown down. The gale comes sometimes as late 88 tbe fl ret week in October, but last year it camn in the laH week in August. Ic will tbua be seen that tbe city is In imminent danger at any moment.

Dr. Rice participated in tbe Democratic Convention all day, voting his delegation for or againet every man and measure brougut be fore it By it be was appointed a del ega'e t tbe nominate Coagreeeional Couvention at Brownbville.and elected a member of c ur county Democratic Executive Committee. As Dr. T. J. Rice has bolted that convention snd thereby rcdla'ed its ait on, he has no business on tbe Executive Com mittee, and is not entitled to. a seat in the Brownsville convention.

A TOUKQ ITO-AX ABDUCTED BI AHACKMAIf And Kept for Several Days at a Hew ark, 5. Hotel-A Remark able Story. &iw York, September 2. A special diepetch from Newark, N.

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 Sneeoe 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.

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.

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.

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 ually. 1 hr.d a severe pain in my bream. After taking six bottles of S. S.
