People rushed out of buildings in the business district and out of their homes, under the im pression that the city had been shaken by a tremendous boiler explosion. Re ports flew thick and fast that such and such a boiler had blown up, that there had been a serious dynamite explosion, and with it the power works at Mar low, 18 miles away, had been demol ished. Investigation of all these re ports was without results. Neighboring towns telephones in, saying that they heard the explosion and felt the shock, and laboring under, the impression that Knoxville had been wiped off the map by some gigantic explosion, breathed easier when informed that no damage had been done locally. The earthquake rattled dishes and shook articles from shelves, but there was no damage. The Bhock seems to have been felt a a num ber of East Tennessee points. SUFFERED NERVOUSNESS.

Sooresby Routledge Hss Organized Body of Men Who Will Attempt to Discover Purpose of Terrace and Sculpture There. There. London. An Englishman, Mr. Sooresby Routledge, has fitted out an expedition to visit -Easter Island with the object ot throwing some light if possible on the origin of the terraces on the island (which for long years have mystified archeologlsts), and to determine If possible the purpose for which the terraces and sculptures were made. The Royal society, the British association, and the Royal Geographical society are aiding the 3i- Platform. With Stone Image. expedition, and the admiralty haa lent a naval officer for navigating services. Easter Island is one ot the strange places of earth. It Is a mere speck on the map, ot an area of about 45 square miles, and It Is set away off In the Southern Pacific ocean some 2,500 miles from the coast of South America. Except for the strange ter races, and the peculiarly carved fig ures on the island it is doubtful If it would ever be thought of again. The population Is only about one hundred natives of the Polynesian race, who subsist on the few bananaa they grow, and the sugar cane they are able to cultivate. They produce some sweet potatoes, too, and keep a few goats and some domestic fowl. 1 . Archeologically, however, the island possesses a wonderful Interest There are on the island immense platforms built of cut stones, fitted together without cement In some of the plat forms on the seaside, the walls rise as high as thirty feet, and are from 200 to 300 feet long, by about thirty feet wide. Some ot the squared atones are as much as six feet long. But more remarkable still are the stone pedestals found on the broad terraces on the land side of the platforms, on which once stood huge stone Images carved somewhat In the form of the human trunk. These Images have long since been thrown down and scat tered about. On some of the plat forms there were upwards of a dozen of these strange figures. They aver age from 14 to 16 feet In height, but one has been found that is 37 feet high. Still others are but four feet In height One statue eight feet high and weighing four tons was taken to England some years ago and Is now preserved In the British museum. Other evidences of a forgotten race are found in stone houses, nearly 200 feet long, 20 feet wide. These struc tures are built ot flat stones fitted to gether without cement. ,he walls are aooui nve wei inica ana oi bdoui ine same height .. . Inside, the walls are lined with upright slabs, on which are painted geometrical figures and representations of animals. The roofs are formed by placing slab so that each course overlaps the lower one until the opening is about five feet wide, when the remaining spaoe is covered with flat slabs reaching from one side to the other. - Archeologtsta ' have before now ought some explanation of the origin of the terraces, the strange images and the odd stone houses, but so far without sucoess. Tbe present 'Inhabi tants of the island know nothing ot their origin or their use, and the en tire subject of their existence remains a mystery. There are still some 800 statues on the Island. Mr. Routledge' oxpedltion is being specially fitted out for research work, , WOMEN WILL BETTER TOWN Fair 8x of Elmhurat Form Clvi "League and Plan Many Needed ' Reforms. Nw York.
