Coast railway, midway between Santa
Ynox and Santa Marin, in the long,
narrow valley of tho Los Alamos, IS
miles from the coast. It has about 300
population. The Los Alamos valley Is
from one-halt to one mllo wido. Its
population is about 800. There are no
brick buildings in the littlo village,
and tho damago thus far it limited to
tho ruin of platter, the collapse of
chimneys, tho breaking of crockery anil
glassware, tho falling of tho nails of
tho Presbyterian church and two store
buildings and tho demolishing of an old
adobe building which was seriously
damaged by tho first quake. Tho dam
ace will not exceed 110,000 in tho
opinion of conservative residents of the
place. There is not a chimney loft
standing in tho town. Ono residence
was moved four Inches and split in
oppoelto corners. Not a building
escaped some Injury, and it is consid

There was a scries of light vibrations
during the day, which culminated in
quito a severe shock at 7:30 P. M.
1-rut her shocks are anticipated. The
most severe shock of tho entire scries
occurred at 1 :20 this morning, when
the hits were shaken and twisted to
their foundations and tho valley trem
bled and rolled like the surface of the
ocean. Grc.it Insures were run in tho
earth, hills appeared in level valleys,
springs of water opened up in places
that htd been dry, m d tho general to
nography of tho valley was greatly
changed in many respects..
The disturbance had no general direc
tion, but was what is known as a
"twister." It was preceded by a
rumbling like that of distant thunder,
which increased until tho earth began
to rock and twist and the hills began
to tremble. With the first warning of
the sound of the approaching disaster
the terror-stricken peoplo rushed into
the streets and sought places of safety
in vacant lots and fields, while many
hastened toward tho neighboring hills.
The first vibrations were similar to the
preceding disturbances in direction and
effect, but they were immediately fol
lowed by the most terrific shock ever
experienced in this section of the state.
The earth tiemhled and rolled and
twisted until it was impossible to stand
erect, and the terror-stricken peoplo
crouched together in the darkness, fear
ful that the earth beneath them misfit
open and swallow them up.

tation was requested to remind the
