T IE hot wave of the past sum
mer which caused much suffer
ing and many deaths all over
the country has had many sim
ilar and it would seem even
more disastrous predecssors, and in
delving into the records of the past
the somewhat surprising fact is dis
closed that the old world has suffered
much more than the new.
In the years 1303-4 the Rhine, Loire
and Seine rivers went dry. The heat
in several of the French provinces in
1705 was equal to that of a glass fur
nace. Meat could be prepared for the
table by merely exposing it to the
sun. No person dared to venture out
of his house between the hour of noon
and 4 p. m.
In the year 1718 many shops had to
close all over Europe. Not a drop of
rain fell for four months. In 1773 the
thermometer rose to 118 degrees. In
1778 the heat in Bologna was so in
tense that scores of people were
stifled.
In July, 1793, the heat again became
intolerable. Vegetables were burned
up and fruit dried on the trees. The
furniture and woodwork in dwelling
houses cracked and split and meat be
came tainted is an hour. The French
revolution was then at the height of
its bloody carnival, and many super
stitious persons thought that the wave
of heat following this mighty upheaval
was the curse of God.
In 1800 Spain was visited by a swel
tering temperature. Madrid and other
cities were deserted and the streets
became silent.
Another disastrous hot wave swept
over Europe in 1851. In the Champs
do Mars, Paris, during a military re
view, soldiers by the score fell vic
tims to sunstroke, and at Aldershot,
England, men dropped dead while at
drill, compelling the officers to sus
pend the exercises.
In This Country.
The summer of 1853 was exception
ally hot in many parts of this country
and in New York the thermometer
ranged for seven days from 95 to 98
degrees. In one week 214 persons
died of sunstroke in the metropolis.
The year 1854 was hot and dry and
the heat seemed to concentrate in the
southwest. In Missouri from June 17
to the following year not a drop of
rain fell. In 1872 New York experi
enced a torrid visitation of fearful
intensity. On July 4, 155 cases of
sunstroke occurred and of these 72
proved fatal. The principal thorough
fares were like fields of battle. Men
fell by the score and ambulances were
in constant requisition. Dumb beasts
lay down by the wayside and panted
their lives away. Sleep for two or
three of the hottest nights was well
nigh impossible, and in the tenement
districts women and children were
found dead on the roofs, to which they
had clambered in the hope of getting
a breath of cool air. The scenes in
the morgue were appalling, Dozens of
bodies were on the stone slabs, under
the splashing water, awaitifg the rec
ognition of friends or relatives.
The next serious visitation took
place in 1877, and about July 9 began
to make its power felt throughout the
middle and southern states, as well as
New York. In Washington the heat
was particularly oppressive. The car
rails became so expanded by the ac
tion of the sun,as to rise up in curved
lines, drawing the bolts. In one in
stance the rails burst away from the
bolts and left the track entirely. The
thermometer marked 104 degrees.
The jummer of 1879 will long be re
memb red for its torrid atmosphere.
The situation will be better under
stood from the following record: Nor
Wich, Conn., June 2, 100 degrees; New
York, June 23, 98 degrees; Charleston,
July 11, 101; on the same date St.
Louis, 100; Knoxville, Tenn., July 13,
103; Charleston, July 14, 111 (16
deaths); Detroit, July 16, 102; New
York, July 17, 101.
Thought the End Had Come.
In 1881 it is said the heat through.
out the United States was the great'
est on record, the thermometer in
many places registering .105 degrees
in the shade. In England the mer
cury ranged from 90 to 101 degrees,
and in Paris 93 degrees. The heat
continued with brief intermission
through July and August into Septem
ber. In Richmond the thermometer
registered 105 degrees; in Washing.
ton 104; in Baltimore,, Wilmington,
Philadelphia, Rochester hnd elsewhere
from 99 to 100; yet on September 7
snow fell in Deadwood, S. D., to the
depth of five inches, and at Bald
mountain the snow was two feet deep.
During the month of September the
thermometer in places registered as
high as 106 degrees and great forest
fires broke out and raged in different
parts of the country. On September 7
a day of darkness broke over the
country, being worse over the New
England states, and the superstitious
were badly frightened. The Connecti
cut legislature, in a belief that the
end of the world was approaching, ad
journed. A strange greenish-yellow
pall overspread the heavens, and so
darkened the light of the sun that
lamps and gas were lighted, schools
and factories closed, and multitudes
of the ignorant and superstitious be
lieved that the day of judgment had
come.
Everything looked changed and un
natural. The faces of the people on
the street were ghastly, the gas jets
in the stores, instead of showing yel
low, were as white and clear as elec
tric lights, and thousands of the sect
known as the Second Adventists gath
ered in their places of worship and
confidently awaited the appearance of
the Lord. The dark day was more
wonderful in the country. The leaves
and withering foliage assumed a most
singular tint of green, changing like
that of grass to a brownish hue;
fowls went to roost, and the animal
creation must have been greatly mys
tified by a phenomenon such as they
had never before witnessed.
A curious feature of this luminous
haze was that it cast no shadow. It
was as light under the trees as away
from them, the whole unnatural ap
pearance of things most likely being
due to the immense forest fires, which
were raging in many parts of the
country.
Other Hot Visitations.
The months of June and July, 1882,
were notably oppressive. On the 13th
of July 88 children in New York city
died from the effects of the heat. Car
horses fell in their traces; drivers
dropped from their seats on trucks
and wagons. Broadway was like a
great transparent flame of fire. Busi
ness was partially suspended and
many workshops were closed. The
crowded parts of New York on the
east and west sides were filled with
families mourning thel! dead, and un
dertakers went their busy rounds as
if an epidemic prevailed( Seven hun
dred and seventy-nine little ones died
during this period from diseases super.
Induced by the heat.
The month of August, 1896, was
very hot and for a period of five days
the thermometer ranged from 98 to
100 degrees. Hundreds died of aun.
stroke. The year 1900 was also P
scorcher. For three days in May,
three in June, 15 in July, 17 in August
and four in September-a total of 42
days-the thermometer ranged from
90 degrees upward, and in places went
above the 100 mark.
