NAPLES. Oct. 24. — The island cf
Ischia in the Mediterranean se.a.
16 miles southwest of the clty
of Naples, has been stormswept. First
reports reaching here pave a very con
siderable loks of life from a tidal wave,
hut the latest rrports indicate that
the victims -are few.
Communication wiah the inland is
difnoult v but brief dispatches from Cas- j
amicciola state that while it is believed
some persons were killed by the col
lapse of houses, the tfody of only one
woman has been . recovered. ,
Naples Struck by Storrn^.u*—-^
Naples suffered from a furious storm
of r.ind and rain last night and all
today, the damage "amounting to mil
lions. Every section of the city bears
the marks of the gale.
Th<? suburbs wern even more seri
ously affected, several persons beinf?
killed. The surrounding country has
been devastated, great quantities of
Kraprs, vines, trees, walls and parts of
houses bping scattered in all directions.
Engulfed by Avalanche
An avalanche of stones and mud
rushed down Mount Vesuvius above the
lava line of the eruption of- 1906. It
BTvept a-U before it as far as the town
of Porti'i. It wrecked the tram line
and engulfed nearly a score of victims.
Up tr> the present there is no con
firmation of the report that Ischia suf
fered from a tidal wave or a seismic
disturbance. It was in the direct path
of the hurricane which toppled over the :
houses fn Casamiceiola and other vil
lages. After the earthquake of ISS3
tlT > s*» places were rebuilt with the very
thinnest houses, which, while admir
ably calculated to- resist earthquakes.
w*r«» unable to withstand the violence
of th«» storm of the last 24 hours.
Bodies Under Debris
. While it Js believed there are bodies
under the debris, the very flimsy nature,
of the structures r»robably permitted [
moft'flf the occupants to escape.
There is much anxiety here, however,
as many residents of Naples went to
Ischia to escape the cholera. Slgrnor
s=a<-chi. minister of public works, and
Admiral Leonard!, minister of marine, j
have arrived at Naples. They will make
an Inspection of the district and direct/
* If necessars", the work of rescue.
Warships Carry Supplies
ROME, Oct. 24.— The ministry of. the
interior t>as ordered four men-of-war
fflfej !,i;rry to I^rhia with men and Fup
vl!<r*.. Casamiceiola is 12 -miles south
x\-fst of Pozjiuolf, at the foot of Mount
Epomeoz. It was: nearly destroyed by
an earthquake in July, ISS3, when about
l.Tflf) lives were lost. It has since been
rebuilt and has a population of about
4.000. .
Steamer Regulus Lost
J?T. JOHNS. N. F-, Oct. 24.— News of
the wreck of the steamer -Re^ulus,
bound from Belle isle to Sydney with
the. loss of 19 men of the crew, was re
ceived here today. The wreck oc
curred at Shoaf bay. nine miles from

Despite the fact that money is com

aging rate^it is not enough. . ;
Let not the public get the Idea that
an effort' is being made to supply,. the
orphans with luxuries. The barest ne
cessities to make, them moderately
comfortable are all that the sisters
have any idea of purchasing now. -..
At present the children have no'as

gather'in groups in the. bare hallways
and on the echoing stairways, making
themselves busy with their little tasks
of sewing, or with their books and
At present they regardtit in the light
of something of a "lark," but with the
older ones the novelty is beginning to
wear off and there are those sad little
childish' sighs and longings for the
homely comforts they have lost.
