The figures denote the days of the month on which one or more shocks were felt. Those with an asterisk affixed were described as smart. The remainder were only slight tremours, and no doubt escaped record at most stations, there being no instrumental means employed for their detection. This table is therefore not reliable so far as indicating the geographical distribution of the shocks.
