There is no country of the world that has yet to feel the death dealing influence or suffer the devastating effects of the earthquake. Its tolls in death have been millions of souls, the financial loss it has wrought is incalculable. Long before the birth of Christ, history records, there were great up heavals in which cities were utterly demolished and thousands upon thousands killed. Antioch, the capi tal of Syria, probably has been the worst individual sufferer from earth quakes, for four visitations have as many times wrecked the city and slaughtered hosts of its inhabitants. In the last and most terrible of these 250,000 lives were lost. There are but three other disas ters of record waere the fatalities have been anywhere as great as this last one at Antioch. This occurred in Jeddo, Japan, at Pekin and in Sic ily. At Jeddo two hundred thousand persons are said to have perished, and one hundred thousand each at Pekin and Sicily. Some of the great earthquake dis asters, with the number of fatalities are given in the following table: Date. Place. Dead. 1456 Naples 40,000 1531 Lisbon 30,000 1626 Naples 70,000 1667 Schamaki 80,000 1693 Sicily 100,000 1703 Jeddo 200,000 1716 Algiers 20,000 1731 Pekin 100,000 1754 Grand Cairo 40,000 1755 Lisbon 50,000 1755 Kaschum, Persia ... 40,000 1783 Messina and other towns of Sicily and Italy over thrown ...Many thousand 1797 Central America.... 40.000 1812 Venezuela 20,000 1822 Aleppo .. 20,000 1867 Peru and Ecuador.. 23,000 1888 Island of Krakotoa.. 60,000 1893 Persia 12,000 1896 Japan 35,000 1902 St Pierre. Martinique 25.000 1905 Northern India 19,000 In the United States the greatest earthquake was that of 1906 in Cal ifornia, when a great portion of ihe city of San Francisco was burned. The loss of life in this earthquake has been variously estimated from 500 to 1.000 and the financial lose at nearly a billion dollars. Orange Kance. Whiles of three eggs, one nil powdered sugar.
