imake  had  anything   but a   pleasant

and   lost  nothing of  great value, but
Mrs.  Si-iargo   says  the  sight     ui   tlic
suffering-     and   misery   of     hundreds
of  Joss  fortunate people,    was  in    itself,   horrible,     in tho   extreme.     To

street, a few blocks from .Market st
when lhe shock came. The hoiiso
was a wooden building, and with
thc fw-ept ion of thc chimneys bo
ing thrown down, escaped without
damage. The occupants were awakened by the quake and Sirs. Spargo says the shock seemed to last
��. fearful time-. She and ihe other
occupants immediately rose and
quickly dressing went lo the street,
where crowds of panic stricken people had already assembled, the majority in their night g-arments. As
soon as lhe fire started she returned to the house and throwing- ber
belonging'synto a trunk dragged the
same along- several streets to a
place of safety. She and her friends
selected   .Jefferson      Square, some
distance from her residence for a
camping ground, where with hundreds oi' others, spent two weary
nights, with only a blahket or two
for covering and enduring dreadful privations. Many people in this
��� ,uare were; very ill, suITcriqg from
juries    received by some     article
falling on them in the shock or
from sickness of one kind or another,-.and   lack of    good food.
In  the  two nights     24 babies were
