VOLUME II.
EARTHQUAKE ECHOES.
From the Argonaut.
"What's tliat?"
"I don't know. It looks as if the rooi
were fulling in."
Thus said my companion and myself.
We were driving in a buggy down Broad
way, Oiiklund, and were looking at a
building then called the "Wilcox Btiild
mfi." It was the morning of October 21
18US.
I said, wo were looking at this
building. Anew story had just been
added to i, and we were speculating as
to the falely of milking such additions to
buildings whose walls wore only desig
nated for structures of lesser height. It
was five minutes to eight o'clock. We
had pulled up, and were looking curi
onsly at the new Htory when my com
panion made the remark:
"What's that?"
It did indeed look as if the roof were
falling in. The walls budged out, the
roof seemed to sink, the building moved
sligiitlv, and then recovered its perpen
diculur. We were botn so amazed that
we could only stare in open-mouthed
wonder.
At this moment I noticed that the
horse was acting queeriy. He did not
look as if lie were guing to run away,
but simply as if somethingextraordiuary
were puzzling his equine bruin. 1 fan
cied there might be something wrong
with the harness, and giving t'ie lines
lo my companion, jumped out to jee.
As my feet ttruck the ground 1 thought
for a moment tnat 1 must be mad. The
earth rocked beneath me it rocked
with such violence that I could Hardly
stand. I 8' ized the shaft, partly to
steady myself, and partly to get to the
horse's head, for ho was giving such
signs of agitation that I feared he might
runaway.
As I got to the horse's head, there
was a dull, rumbling roar, and it cloud
of dust lose up »nd down the street.
Then there was crashing, jingling
sound, ai:d 1 saw man) window-fronts
upon Broadway falling into the street.
Following them cume an avalanche of
bricks and monar from falling chimneys
and lire-walls. And last of al! came a
dense mass of people Irom the shops
and houses. Your human does not move
asquicklvas inanimate objects during
an earthquake. When lie does, he
sometimes regrets it, far if he arrives at
the same time as the falling bricks and
mortar, he wishes he hadn't—unless, of
course, he bo a good Christi n, whose
salvation is all fixed and his good deeds
chalked up, in which case, of course, a
nions joy should pervade his breast.
All that I have related took but a
few seconds. And in about a minute after
the shock began Broadway was filled
with runaway teams of every descrip
tion.
There wai at. that time an open square,
or vacant lot, on Broadway, containing
nothing but trees. I remember notic
ing these trees, and being struck, even
then, at their absurd appearance. (One
thinks quickly during an earthquake.)
As the waves of the earth-ppasm rolled
along, the trees ruse ami fell, inclining
lirst to one side, then to the oilier, bob
bing and bowing in a ludicrous fashion.
Those who were on this Bute of the
bay that morning may think this de
scription of the shock exaggerated. But
when they consider that the local cen
tre of the earthquake of 'US was evident
ly at Kan Leandro, thev will see that
they are mistaken. Over there some
buildings were entirely demolished,
others twisted upon their foundations,
and fissures and cracks opened in the
earth many rods in length. Si-arcely a
chimney was Ie it standing in Oakland or
Alameda.
A curious phase of the earthquake
was the Uelief on the part of the Oak
landerethatSan Francisco wasdestroyed.
A thick haze hung over the bay. It
was impossible to see any of the spires
and towers of San Francisco. The tele
graph wires were down the draw
nridge over San Antonio Creek was
thrown out of gear oy the shock the
train (there was but one then) was
punned up on the other side of tho es
tuary. The only way of reaching the
city was by freight-boat which they rnn
on tho ereek. To this repaired the
anxious Oaklanders and we still more
anxious Sail Franciscans.
On the little pier at the foot or Broad
way was a crowd of Beveral hundred
men. It was divided into
little groups, in the centre of each
of which was an excited man, telling
where he was and what he did at the
time ol the shock. He was perpetually
being intetrupted by other excited men,
who wanted to tell what they did and
where they were. Every man in every
group was engaged in moving his arms
wind-mill-wiae. to illustrate how the
earth had quivered. In moments ofex
citeinent the Anglo-Saxon race becomes
as gesficulative as the Latin.
One man in particular I remember.
He was one of those
r-mall
men with im­
mense fuaiiau voices—one who could
outroar any ono else, and by virtue of
his superior lung power had succeeded
in telling his personal experience over
any number of times. As soon as he
hud finished it, he began again.
It may be necessary to remark here
that all through the morning of the 21st
there were continuous shocks. People
had their nerves completely unhinged
by the first shock, and the gentle yet
ominous oscillations of mother earth
kept them permanently so. I will further
remark (apparently without coherence)
that there was an immense heapofcoul
piled up on the edge of the pier.
The little man witn the big voice was
still talking. His oration ran thus:
'•You see, we had jist got up from
breakfast when that there.first shock
come. My wife she started to run. I
says to her, 'Now, Jemima,' says I,
'whatever is tho use of runnin." But
she wouldn't listen to nuthin', so I jist
grabbed her and held her till it was
over. And what do you think?—when
that shock come to an end. Jemima she
fainted and I was list as cool as I am
now."
"D'ip—drip—drip—drip!"
The cual was falling into the water
over the edge of the pier. Kvery one
nirjied—the slightest noise was ominous.
"Drip—drip—drip—drip!i'lash!Dash!
Spalsti!"
Tie pier was rocking to and fro—fir3t
gently, then with vigor then with a
vicious thump which meant m'schief.
There was a sudden absqaatulation "to
dry land. The crowd resolved itself
into an immense and swiftly moving
ian tho apox pointing towurd the shore.
The ape* was our friend, the little man
with ilits big voice.
At tliit) point many of tho Oakland ere
lost their interest in San Francisco.
They could not he iu-ain induced to go
unon the pier. They contented them
selves with vaguely remarking that they
"would wait and see," and with whoop
ing up others who seemed disinclined
to go.
At last the boat made her appearance.
I think it was the old ferry-boat Louise,
long since disappeared from these wa
ters—under that name, at least. It was
not a very large crowd that boarded her.
There was a goud deal o' talk ubout tidal
waves and things, and tho people looked
upon us very much, I fancy, as the
Spaniards did on Columbus when he set
out upon his voyage into unknown seas.
Most of us, as I have said, were San
Franciscans On the boat, I remember
was Michael Reese. Michael was
drenched with woe. lie feared that
where San Franciseo had reared lier
fair tower-crowned liill-tops to the Bkv,
there was nothing but ashes, dust, and
desolation—hence pecuniary damage to
Michael Reese. He was a large, adipose
greasy mass of sufferinc, He -ven
wept. Tears ran down his fat cheeks,
and mingled with the imperfectly re
moved remnants of his breakfast.
A group stood around him, attempt
to comfort him. I do not fancy they
felt anything but contempt for him, vei
they respected his millions. And thii
blubbering millionaire was being cod
dled likeu blubbering school-boy.
"Ach Goti!" sighed Michael, blowing
his nose with a large red bandanna
Handkerchief, "ich bin ruined! All
dose years vat I shtraggle vas trown avay.
Who couid dell nodding aboud an erd
kvake, I like to know? Dot is not lik
a lire. Dose insurance gompanies dey
will not pay me noddings. Lieber Gotl!
Berhaps dose insurance gompanies vos
gone up, too."
And a fresh burst of tears came to tho
relief of the over-burdened million
aire.
John W. Dwinelle approached, and
satirically comforted the weeping Dives.
"Do nut, be so cast down, Mr. Reese,"
said he. "Things are not so bad, I iin
iig'ne, as they aie represented. We
shall presently be in sight of the city,
and I think we shall see it standing. Ah,
excuse me, Mr. Reese—you had eggs for
breakfast, I fancy."
And he indicated to tha weeper a
laree mass of eirg-velk uDon his star
board jaw, partially mixed wih tears.
Michael scrapjd it off and resumed his
weeping.
But soon we came where the fog-veil
was not so thick, and the top of the
shot-tower was seen piercing tfie haze.
I remember that some enthusiastic spir
its gave three cheers for the safety of
the citv And as we gradualv ap
proached the pier, it was seen that the
city wis apparently all there. We did
not learn until later that the shock had
been lighter on the San Francisco side
than on the other.
We hastened up the streets, looking
tor damaged houses, ruined walls, and
corpses. We did nut see as many as we
had expected. Coming up Clay "street
however, near ^ansome, there was a
frightened hoy who, surrounded by a
crowd of people, was pointing at a mass
of blood and brains on the sidewalk.
IlisjVws were working convulsively, but
no sound came from them. A bystander
told mo that the boy had witnessed the
death of the man who formerly used
the brains, and that the suht so horri
fied him that he had remained in that
condition ever since the shock—a mat
te-of a couple of hours. The man, it
seems, had run out of the building
when the first shock caine, and had got
io the sidewalk just in time to catch the
lulling fire-wall upon the top of his head.
I do not propose to weary iny read
ers with an account of the earthquake.
It is ancient history. But these tilings
came into my head the other morning,
when I was awakened at one o'clock by.
the familiar vibrating, twisting, grinding,
mo'ion—tho creaking of the groaning
bricks, the ominous rtimhlo of the shud
dering metal roof. I said to myself:
"The most severe shock since '68."
And, so saving, these recollections came
to me, and I jolted them down.
But I will indulge myself in telling one
or two anecdotes which I recall. There
was a gentleman here from the east at
the time, wh«t had been sigh in* for an
earthquake. I have met many like
him, by the way, but I never saw any
of them who wanted to feel two. 1 do
not refer to temblors, but to good stiff
shocks. No one who has ever felt one
wants to leel another.
This pilgrim, then had been yearning
for an earthquake. Fortunately lor
him, it came before lie went awav. He
went away as soon as he could get away,
I may add. He was living in Brenhain
l'lace, and was awaKcned"by the shock,
lie knew what it was. No man needs
an introduction to an earthquake. He
fled through the door. He nearly took
it with- him. He was clad onlv in a
short night-shirt, but despite that fact
he went into tho centre of the Pluza.
and there he remained. He could not
be induced to re-enter the house. Fi
nally, he hired a small boy to go and
get his clothes, and dressed himself be
fore the populace.
I.ater in the dav he ventured out of
the Plaza, and, accompanied by Tommy
Newcoinbe, went to Barry & Patten's to
get ii drink. The barkeeper mixed the
drinks and pln ed tham upon the coun
ter. Newcoinbe pushed his back, re
questing the barkeeper to take the ice
out. The other did the same. It was
half past ten o'clock. There is a
slight jingle of glasses, then a crash,
and the bar leaned forward
and courteuied to the two friends in tho
most fuuiiliar fashion. The barkeeper
was almost buried in a vitreous nva
lanche. The eastern man kDew, with
out ooing told, that this was another
earthquake. He made fir tho street
He sot there before anybody else in the
house. This despite the fact that he
lacked experience. These Kaqtern men
are very quick to learn about some
things—particularly earthefuakes. He
reached the street with such impetuosity
that he was on the other side before he
knew it. There was a building there be
longing to Sam Brannan, the top of
which was crowned with two long stones,
meeting like a V. One of these fell with
the second shock, just as our Eastern
friend reached the sidewalk. The stone
enmo shooting down like a conical pro
jectde, struck the flagged sidewalk,made
a clean hole and disappeared in the
depths below. The hole was about six
ntiiesaway Irom the Eastern man. He
nearly fell into itt
He took the next steamer for home.
When this shock took place, 1 hap
pened to be in the Odd Fellows' Bank,
then on Montgomery street, opposite
where the Safe Deposit building now is.
A g'oup of us were talking over the lirst
shock. I remarked that 1 hail not leen
in a bull ling when the first shock came,
but that, hail 1 been, I would have re
mained. I luither said that I considered
running trom a building as highly danger
ous, instancing the unfortunate man
who was killed on Clay Street as a case
in point. All agreed with me. Ono in
particular—a friend named Maillot—re
marked:
"Youare perfectly right. The man
who would run out of a building during
an earthquake shock is a d—d fool."
The words were scarcely out of h:s
mouth when the half past ten o'clock
shock came. I do not remember very
distinctly how I got there, but in about
tnreu seconds 1 lound myself in the
middle of the street. I have no recol
lection of coming down stairs. Strange
to say all the other fellows were there
too. M«illot looked at me, and re
marked, with grim humor:
"1.thought you never ran from an
earl h(|uake."
"I never do."
"But you ran then."
"No. I didn't run. I flew."
So I did. And I very much fear I
mav again.
Passing- Events.
A citizen of Memphis, who died re
cently, had two policies of insurance on
his life which his fami could not find.
One night a friend of the deceased had
a dream in which he saw the lost poli
cies. On waking he went lor the do
cuments and found them.
London Truth heirs that the queen
has issued a private memorandum en
joining the occupants of a certain royal
palace to a correction and reformation
of manners. Recent events have brought
to her knowledge the fact that, in one 1
her palaces, gambling is regularly going
on to an almost incredible extent. En
ormous sums are won and lost. The ar

Sundays and other days directed to be
kept holy.

400 feet wide. An wngineer proposes
seven spans of 300 feet each, one to bi
drawn. The piers are to be creosoted
piles, driven in clusters, and heavily
capped and cased with iron. The depth
of water will be no obstacle, as the piles
can be spliced. The estimated cost is
$18,000,000.
Men who were weighing a bale ol
cotton in Dallas, Tex., a few days ago,
noticed that it was warmer than tho at
mosphere. An examination proved
that the center of the bale was on fire,
and when it was opened the smoldering
cotton burst into flames. There are two
theories as to the origin of the fire, spon
taneous comhus ion and a spark from
the gin, finding about equal support in
local opinion.

The London News tells a good ptory ol
two well-known Americans who were
accustomed to visit Europe in May, and
had competed with each other for the
best berths in the Germanic or Britan

in succession, thought he would be all
right in 18S1. Accordingly in March last
he wr te, engaging tho captain's room
and three of the best state rooms for the
first voyage of the Germanic. Flushed
with the certai ty of triumph, he in
cautiously mentioned the circumstance
to a friend. Pleased with this stroke oi

A Woman Author Who Was Al
most General itiiruside's Wife.
Mrs. Clark, the author of "A Modern
Hagar," married a prominent Southern
lawyer before the war. He has since
died, and ehe has come into a small pat
rimony recently by the death of an ec
centric relative in New Orleans. She was
once engaged to be married to Gen.
Burnside and iictually appeared before
the altar with him. The thought struck
her, as she says, before she uttered the
irrevocable words that she was making
a
mistake So in a few wordB she made
known her conclusions to the expectant
groom and the waiting minister, and re

gracefully aspos

They only met once ofler fhat. It was
during the war. Mrs. Clark was commis
sioned to carry important dispatches to
Jefferson Davis. To do this she had to
pass the Union lines. She baked a n

patches in them.

manded to be breught before him. He
recognized her. She said she was going
to Mobile, and asked for a pass and a
discharge. He onlv hesitated a moment
and then wrote one out in silence and
handed it to her. "Does that contain
yeur lunch?" he asked pointing to a
small bahket ich she carried in her
hand. "Yes." "Let me see it." She
opened the basket, displaying the bis
cuits. "Will you try one,General? they
are pretty hard." The General refused
to taste the proffered dainty, and or
dered a good dinner to b' served for
her, and then put her on the cars him
self.
The dispatches were so important
that she received the thanks of the Con
fedracy for her service, and was lionized
through the south, where she served in

Signs of an Open Winter as Re
vealed by an Agree! Indianian.
Prom tie Terre Haute Express.
"What kind of a winter are we going
to have uncle?" asked an express re
porter of an old squirrel hunter and
mink trapper who makes his home in
the hills across the river.
"I kinder calculate that we will have
a rather mild winter all the indications
point to tuch."
"What signs do you go by uncle?"
"I have a good many signs, and I
never knew one of them to' fail yet.
When I sav we are going to have a mild
winter, you can depend on it. Haven't
1 lived in this country for forty years,
and haven't I watched the winters right
along, and eughten't I be able to tell?
"Are tho corn husks thin this year?"
"You butttr rekon they are. There
arc only two or three layers of them,
and they are as th.n as calico. Why,
the corn is till dry enough now to go
through a snow without injury. The
one or two frosts we have had have
tucked all the sap out of it."
"Are there any other indications be
sides the corn husks?"
"You better believe there are. Now,
when the sun crossed the line the wind
blew from the southeast. That indicates
a mild winter every time. If it had
blown from the north you could have
been prepared to hear the wind blow
great guns."
'"Is that all?"
"Not by a long ways. I could tell you
enough to fill a book. My dog holed
a ground hog the other day. I had
nothing to do, so I set to work and dug
the animal out. He dida'i have a leaf
or a twig in his hole: hadn't nothing in
the shape of a nest.
"Isn't it too early for ground hogs to
make their nests?"
"Now I see how little you know about
a ground hog. A ground hog has bis
hole dug, or has picked out his hole, by
the first of September. If it's going to
be a cold winter he has it tilled with
leaves by this tin'e."
"Is there any thing else?"
"Yes The coons havn't commenced
to gnaw the corn. That is a splendid
sign. And another sign, and a sign that
never fails, the woodneckers haven't
commenced to drum. Now if this was
going to be a cold winter ai! the old
dead trees -uld be covered with red
heads pecking away ata bole in which

"Isn't it too early tor that yet?"
"Not a bit. They should have their

The best located
town in Southern
Dakota, being situ
ated near the cen
ter of Brule County,
in the midst of the
best farming and
stock country in
the world. The
proof of which has
been fully demon
strated in the mag
nificent crops of the
past few years.
KIMBALL
Is located on the Main Line of
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul Railroad, 48 miles west of
Mitchell and 22 miles east ot
Chamberlain. It has a fine pub
lic school building, good church
es, a first-class postoffi.ee-, two
banks, two srood hotels, one
large grain elevator and mate
rial on the ground for another,
three lumber yards, all tarrying
immense stocks several black
smith shops, good livery stables,
and stores representing all
branches of trade. Still the
country demands more and to
live men great inducements are
offered to invest in this
Beautiful Town
The Brule County Agricul
tural Fair Grounds adjoin the
townsite and is one of the best
fair grounds in the Territory,
with a good half-mile track.
THE TOWN IS BOOMING
And now is the time to invest.
D. WARNER,
Proprietor of the original town
site, has platted and laid, out
three additions, all adjoining,
with a continuation of slreets
and alleys. Part nt which are
in acre lots, so as to enable till
classes to be suited in procuring
a residence lot. The most de
sirable blocks on Main Street
are still for sale to those Mho
desire to engage in business, and
great inducements are offered
to that class of men.
The climate in this part of
Dakota is everything to be
desired and is fully as mild
as that of Ohio, Indiana and Il
linois, with, perhaps, a less num
ber of cloudy days. The rain
fall is abundant and always
conies when most needed. The
water is free from any alkali
taste and as pure as any found
in any of the Eastern States. In
short, the country, climate and
social advantages make this one
of the best, it not the very best,
county in Dakota for the emi
