The figures denote the days of the month on which one or more shocks were felt. Those with an asterisk were sharp, and those with a dagger severe. The remainder were only slight tremors, and no doubt escaped notice at most stations, there being no instrumental means employed for their detection. These tables are therefore not reliable so far as-indicating the geographical distribution of the shocks.
