THE EAOTQtTAKES. Details of the Effect Produced in Various Sections, The recent earthquake shocks were expe- rienced in a large part of the country lying east of the Mississippi Elver. The reports show that the shocks were felt from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes and west- ward from the Atlantic Coast. The full for. e of the earthquake fell upon the country southwest of New York, and it was there that the greatest damage was done. In New York city the shock wa3 a comparatively mild one and it wa< noticed principally in tall buildings. As nearly as the testimony of persons who noticed the sensation can be reconciled, the sensation hv>ted t from fifteen seconds to nearly a full minute. The chief contrast with the earthquake shock of ltjfcli was the absence of noise. Aftertbat it was remarked thatthe waves did not move in a positive direction. Those who noted the occurrence described the sensation vs akin to a rooking motion— such as would bemadeby an,idle boat on a rippling surface of water or by a hammock gently swung. Two very perceptible shocks, moving from west t j east, and each of them lasting for about two se-'onds, were felt in various places in Brooklyn, N. Y. The first occurred about 9:45 o'clock and the second, which was much more violent, about 10:17 o'clock. The shock was distinctly felt in parts of New Jersey. At Plainfield it occurred at It-Sli o'clock and lasted about two minutes. The citizens were much alarmed. In Newark the shock was felt about !):30 o'clock, and was most perceptible in the large factories, which were shaken violently. At SI: 60 P. M. a large part of the population of Washington, I), 0. was startled by a dis- tinct earthquake shock. The disturbance was felt with differing violence in dill'erent parts of the city. At Albaugh's Opera House, where .a performance of \The Mascot\ was in progress, the first tremor arrested the actors on the stage, and as the building swayed gently to and fro the audience arose in alarm and rushe .1 for the doors. People in the gallery felt the motion distinctly, were greatly excited, and fled precipitately. The theatre audience was profoundly dis- turbed, several ladies fainting, and half the audience leaving and refusing to return. The Washington Monument, abjut the safety of which in the event of an earth- quake there has always been some concern, appears to stand as firmly as ever. The streets were dotted with people all discussing the effect of the phenomenon. ITor an hour or so the people of Richmond, Va;, were thrown into a state of excitement never before witnessed since the memo- rable Sunday night of April 3,1865, when the city was evacuated by the Con- federate forces. This excitement was occa- ,siohed by a- distinct shoclcof earthquake, quickly followed by, an alarm sounded by ithe.fire(bolls, calling the milWsry to <v>'-'-~ ix ble; At8:30o?c , )^.».-.-.rVT9SSeo6ible:quiv- . •ring of. the earth- was f el t'there, irisduieparts of the city shaking, houses about-the heads . of 'their uccu%ants in such *a way a> to cause t t e greatest-alarm to the inmates. At the penitent'ary the thick was j-robably greater than anywhere el-e in the town. The convicts, who are always locked in their cells at -1 o'clock in the afternoon, became so alarmel at the unusual phenomenon that the oftl'-ers for awhilr feared that a general panic would fol- low. The men in their excitement and frenzy beat upon the doors-of their cells, and insjstod upon being liberated. J'earingthata genoi al attempt might be made to oscape-ari. alarm of fire was sounded by the officers, quickly followed by a call for the military. Tho call was promptly jespond'ed to by the First Virginia Begiment and other local military. The Curney Suard, a colored military company, was the first to reach the scene of. excitement. In less than an hour the prison was surroundeI by probably 10,- 000 anxious spectators. The excitement about the prison- was almost uuparallelod. The shrieks of the male and female prison- ers were heard for a quarter of a mile. Tho arrival . of the military and police on the ground soon quieted the excited prisoners, and in a.sbort time all of the con- victs were returned to their cells and com- parative quiet reigned. Two prisoners es- caped from the building, but were flredat by the officers and speedily made to surrender. Gov.Leeassoon as ha was advisad of the condition of things jumped into his buggy and drove to the scene of disorder. The earth- quake caused gorieral consternation, princi- pally among ladies. Some people in the npper part of the city ran outmto.the streets in their night clothes. As soon as the true condition of affairs was learned excitement quickly subsided. In other Virginia cities—Norfolk, Danville, Lyn-hburg—and in Charleston, W. Va., V-icksburg, Miss;, Mobile. Ala., and Mont- gomery, Ala.,the shock was felt more or less severely. At fialoigh, N. C, the shock continued nearly six minutes. Buildings rocked, walls cracked, floors broke loose from their sup- port^ chimneys fell, and lamps were over- turned. The motion of the earth was very decided: The streets rapidly filled with peo- E le, screams of frightened persons could be eard. Reports show that shocks were felt all over the State. At Wilmington they wore very severe andcamo near wrecking several buildines. At Charlotte, N. C., several chimneys were demolished and the greatest excitement pre- vailed. Crowds gathered in the streets, and for half an hour there was much confusion »nd fear on the part of the people. Throe shocks were ielt, the first being tho most serious. In Atlanta, Ga, auundulatory movement like the preliminary tremors in an explosion took place at 9 p. jr. The houses wefo at once emptied, and theflOjOOO people of At- lanta were on tho street* anxiously seeking the cause of the disturbances. Three successive shocks rockol the city vio- lently, throwing chimneys to the ground, smashing artidiKwithin. the houses, and shattering tho windows; Several public meetings were in progress, but the buildings wore at once vacated. Tho electric fire alarms were disturbed, and every fire company in the city was out, tho horses plunging madly through the crowds on the streets. The scene in the negro quarters was especially weird. The colored people, unlike the whites, who remained standing, fell upon their knee.? and wept and pleaded for mercy. The preachers wont among them declaring that tho day was at hand when men must regent of their sins. In several cuses they organized love feasts and-sang and danced, declaring that they, were ready. Throughout Tenn sseo the shocks were very distinct, many people in the cities hur- rying from their houses uuder the impression they were-about .to tumble over. Reports of similar experiences to the fore- going come from Chicago, Cincinnati, De- troit, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Milwaukee and other Western cit'ea In the Eastern cities the shocks were notso perceptible as in the South. Shocks were ro- S orted from Albany, New Haven?. Spring- old, Mass., Philadelphia, Pittsburg and other cities, but in most cases they were rather slight. Persons in upper stories at New Haven were made seasick by the vi- brations. In Pittsburg dishes were thrown from shelves, clocks stopped, and the occu- pants of houses rushed out screaming with terror. ^^^^^^^^ THE NATIONAL GAME. FOUR of the Louisvilles have made°over 100 base hits. THE new grand stand of the Philadelphia Club will cost $30,000. Icf New England they ring chestnut bells on batsmen who strike out TUN pitchers have been under contract with the Washington Club. THE Detroits are fast attaining the name of being the worst of kickers. RICHABDSON, of the Detroits, has twice this season made two home runs in one game - AfcMOST half the games between St. Louis and Pittsburg have been shut outs on one side or the other. THE American Association now has two doctors in its ranks, viz., Drs. Al Bushong and J. Lee Richmond. KIBEPE, the young Washington pit.her, gives promise of being a strong rival of Keefe, the New York pitcher. THE demand for good pitchers is greater th's season than ever before, and a first-class , one can command a big salary. ITOHOAN M-DRPjay, of the Boston Blues, is declared to be dSing better work than any otlier New England League camber, • H WES, -the Washington's .heavybattef, has made nine hoiiis runs this oeasomnvliicu iamow than, any other in tho country too* occomplislie.dr . PrrTSiiimn will make;the most moneytals year in the American Association. New York, ds-usital,, will top the League clubs in this particular. AXSOIY, Benny, Rowe and Hardio Richard- sou are the only Leaguers who have mado two bOme runs in one game. Richardson has performsd the feat twice. ANSON, of the Chicagos, has the largest batting total for a single Leaguo game this season—viz.: five bits with a total of twol vo bases in four times a t bat. No League pitcher has yet suceoadod this season in disposing of an opposing toam without a hit.and but one American Associa- tion pitcher—Atkisson—has accomplished the feat. THE second oaso piny of Buffalo's colorotl lad, Grant, is described as wonderful. Some of his stops and catches are said to bo pho- nomonal, and withal ho plays a stoady game, keeping his good work up day by day. THE Detroit club fined Pitohor Gotzoln $300 for insolence and profanity uddrossod to Captain Hanlon, who had consurod him for listless playing. This makes a total of $100 assessed against Ciotzciu in tho lost month in the shape of (lues. THE Bostons made an oiler of $10,000 for the roleaso of flvo St. Louis pluyor3,nnd wore offered tho wholo team for *15,000, provided they would al-o give a bond to run tho nino the wholo of the season. Five thousnud dol- lars ware offered for Glasscoolt and Myers. THE Eastern League Clubs will nover con- sent to tho Western Clubs playing Sunday games just because it may benefit one or two clubs. President Day, of the. New York Club, and Prosidoui Spalding, of tho Chi- cago Club, say that no Sunday games will be played by Loaguo clubs as long as they have anything to say.

The scenery was grand to a degree far beyond our mos't sanguine ex- pectations. Four strong oarsmen soon brought us t o jjlao Rock and as we gazed in silent wonder at its rugged' sides, reaching nearly half a mile above us, for the first time did I realize the immensity of such a spectacle. Beyond Llao Rock w e found a beauti- ful little bay, and beyond this a larger one, probably one mile long by a quarter of a mile deep. Here we found a narrow beach of small gravel running almost tho entire length of th e bay, while further out in th e lake th e bottom is composed of sand. As this point has not only never been named, but probably wns never before visited b y human beings, we decided to christen it Clcetwood Bay. Passing o n our journey it was soon seen that the cliffs on tho north side are not so high as those to the south. In several places it appeared that good trails could easily bo rnudo to tho -water's edge, over which a person might ride, and in one placo without <iny_ grading whatever, a good pack train could des- cend with comparative ease. ' About two o'clock a thunder shower ennio suddenly upon us, just as two beautiful grottoes cumo in viow. Into one of those tho bout wns run, whoro we wero cntiroly beyond tho touch of rain. It proved to bo about thirty feet doop and ton foot wide, with an iirched-roof probably eight feet above tho water, while tho rocky bottom could be .dis- tinctly soon itan foot below the surface. So perfect was its form that i t almost yscomed the bund of mini had hewn it frons itho noiid rook. Beyond it towers an imniouso idll'IF, very high, with broken, ruggod sides, piotun'sque and sublime, which I insist on naming Dutton Cliff, in honor of -Captain Dutton, who has done and is doing eo much to make Crater Lake justly famous. Immediately north of Dutton Cliff the elements have worn the sides of the mountain, leaving n hard substance, resem- bling tho Mansard roof of a cottage, while in one placo tall rod chimneys stand aloft, making, all in all, such a scene that Cot- tage Rock could scarcely bo improved ou for A name. Lying between the points abovo roforred to a break in the walls was found that is almost perpendicular, but certainly docs not exceed 400 feet in height. This is by far the lowest point in th e walls. Just at the foot of Kutton Olill nn island was discovered 200 feei wide by 40() feet long, and over 100 to tho top of tho rocks that stand upon it Hko groat chimneys or towers, giving to it an appearance like th e castles of old. Wo did not land, bu t an appropriate name would be Onstlo Island. Crator Lake hai again risen to the oc- casion, as accurate tests will prove be- yond all question that but few bodies ol water in tho world equal it i n depth, ex- cept the ocean, and none whatever of ar. equal size, while in the western hemis- phere it will stand absolutely unrivaled. Heretofore Tahoe has been considered the deepest lake in America, being 1,640 feet. Only preliminary soundings have been made as yet, and the figures obtained are subject to slight change. The deep- est water found so far is 1,955 feet,. being - 315 more than Tahoe.— Portland Oregonian. Artists of all sorts are abundantly represented in Paris.

Can Consumption bo Curort* We have so often leon fatal results follow the declaration that it can be cured, that we have uneonsojousiy settlod down in the belief thatthis disease must necessarily provo fatal* It is true that occasionally a community lias witnessed an Isolated cass of what may ap- propriately be termed gpontaneous recovery, but to what combination of favorable circum- stances this remit was duo none have hitherto been found able to determine. We have now the gratifying fact to announce that the process by which nature affleots this wonderful change is. no longer a, mystery to the medical profession, and that the ehanges brought about in tho systom uuder favorable oiroumstances by intrinsic causes may be made as cortalnly and more expeditiously by the use of the proper remedy. In other words, naturo is imitated and assisted. Tuberculous matter is nothing more or leas than' nourishment imperfeotly organized. Now, if we can procure the organization of tills food matorial so that through the process of eleotlve affinity it may take its place in the system, we can ourotho disease. This is just what Piso's Cure for Consumption does. It ar- rcifts at once the progress of the disease, by preventing the further supply of tuberoulous matter, for while the system is under its influ- ence all nourishment is organized and assimi- lated. It thus controls cougli, expectoration, nlght-swoats, beotio fever, and all other char- acteristic symptoms of Consumption. Many physicians are now using this medi- -oine, and all write.tbat it comes.fully up to-its recommendations and makes Consumption one of the! diseases they can readily cure. 'I'iie forming stage of a.disease is always the most auspicious for treatment. Tiiis fnot should induce persons to resort to the use of Kso's Cure when the cougli io first noticed, whotlier it has a consumptive diathesis for its cause or not. for this remedy cures all kinds of coughs with unequaled facility and. prompt- ness. In coughs from a simple cold, two or three doses of tho medicine have been found sufficient toromoveithe trouble.. So in.all.dis- eases of the throat and lungs, with symptoms, simulating those of Consumption, Piso's -Cure is-the only infallible remedy.
