Excerpt from Italy's Great Horror of Earthquake and Tidal Wave: Terrible Devastation and Heart-Rending Scenes; Immense Loss of Life and Hundred Millions of Property Destroyed; The Most Appalling Disaster of Modern Times

That is the stupendous story of the great earthquakes and tidal waves that devastated Southern Italy and Sicily in the closing days of 1908.

It is the terrible climax of a series of convulsions of nature that began six years before, when Mont Pelee with one foul breath, blotted out lives on Martinique.

Then came San Francisco, with a property loss and suffering heretofore unequalled.

Valparaiso and Santiago, Chile, next were swept by the avenging hand of nature.
Kingston, Jamaica, was scourged till it almost ceased to exist.

Flame or tidal wave in each contributed to swell the terrible total of destruction.

But Italy's devastation was far greater than any of these, Tidal waves followed close upon the most terrific earth shocks man ever had been called upon to suffer. Flame added to the horror and pestilence stalked over the shattered ruins and took its added grim toll of death from the serried ranks of the mind wrecked and nerve-shattered survivors of the earlier horrors.
