Relief groups soon organized all over the nation. Members of the Cherokee Choctaw tribe made a donation of $710. That's the same as $100,000 in today's money. One of the groups who helped the Irish the most was the Quakers (Society of Friends). They raised money to pay for people's ship tickets to America. They also sent flour, rice, biscuits, and Indian meal to the starving Irish. #8374 Document-Based Questions 32 Teacher Created Resources, Inc. 1 get 2 sick or disabled The Great Chicago Fire and the Web of Memory.

To all in the service of the Chicago Relief and Aid Society: With donations pouring in . . . and with multitudes of sufferers . . . every tendency will be towards a generous . . . distribution of supplies. But remember that there are from six to eight months before us in which we will have to fight the hunger, cold, and nakedness of our poor. You will, therefore, see . . . that not a single dollar be expended for persons able to provide for themselves. Every carpenter or mason can now earn from $3 to $4 per day, every laborer $2, every half-grown boy $1, every woman capable of doing household work from $2 to $3 dollars per week. Clerks, and persons unaccustomed to outdoor labor, if they cannot find such employment as they have been accustomed to, must take such as is offered or leave the city. Any man, single woman, or boy, able to work, and unemployed at this time, is so from choice and not from necessity. You will, therefore, . . . give no aid to any families who are capable of earning their own support (except to supply some needed articles of clothing, bedding, or furniture which their earnings will not enable them to procure 1 , and at the same time meet their ordinary expenses of food and fuel). Our aid must be . . . for the aged, infirm 2 , widows and orphans, and to supply to families those actual necessities of life, which . . . they are unable to procure by their labor. Any failure on the part of any employee of the Society to conform to the instructions above given will be regarded as sufficient cause for his instant dismissal. O. C.

Reading Passage-Geography Oceans: What's Up Down There? You have learned that Earth has five oceans. The Pacific is the deepest and the largest, and the Atlantic is the second largest. Then, there's the Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean, which surrounds Antarctica. The smallest ocean is the Arctic. The Southern and Arctic Oceans spend a lot of the year under ice. Massive floating chunks of ice called icebergs originate in these two oceans. They float into the northern Atlantic and southern Pacific. Ships must avoid them. Running into an iceberg could sink a ship. There are streams of moving water called currents in the oceans. This water circulation is essential in moving heat around the world. Heated water flows from the equator toward the poles in the surface currents. Cold water flows toward the equator in deep, underwater currents. Beneath the ocean's waves there are mountains, deep trenches, and flat plains. We know about them because submarines and remotely operated vehicles have gone down there and photographed them. People discovered the continental shelves first. The continental shelves are huge plates of Earth. They hold both land and sea. All the land on one plate belongs to the same continent. That's why Greenland is part of the North American continent while Australia is its own continent. The water on a continental shelf is considered shallow, even though it may be 490 feet deep! The continental slopes are the edges of these shelves. The slopes may have steep sides. At the base of the slopes are the abyssal plains. These flatlands make up most of the seafloor. Formed by fine sediment deposits, they are the flattest parts of Earth's crust. In some places, the plains are broken by tall underwater mountain chains, or ridges. The largest is the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which extends 34,000 miles as it wanders through the Atlantic, Indian, south Pacific, and Arctic Oceans. Usually, the underwater mountains formed from lava spewing from deep-sea vents. A seamount is one of these mountains that rises at least 3,300 feet above the seafloor. Every moment of every day, volcanoes are erupting somewhere on the ocean floor. When a seamount gets tall enough, it bursts through the ocean's surface and is considered land. This is how all volcanic islands form, including the Hawaiian island chain. One of the most amazing parts of the undersea world is its deep trenches. They are like gigantic cracks in the ocean floor. The Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean is more than 35,700 feet (7 miles) deep- and that's starting at the ocean floor, not the surface! Not only is it the world's deepest sea trench, but it is seven times deeper than the Grand Canyon. In 1995, Japan sent a remote-controlled submarine to the base of this trench. It sent back the first photos people had ever seen. There is dangerously high water pressure that far down. It wouldn't be safe for humans to try to go there. n T lat pl there ves a e con ntine ay ha he sea e pla tlanti c, and deep- Every ount volcan ches. than he w a rem seen. o go h la re ar n en av a ac ti d -s y g an . n wo m t Reading Passage-Geography Oceans: What's Up Down There?
