ALABAMA MINE HORROR.
About 15o Union Miners Entombed
Birmingham. Ala.. Feb. 20.-By an
explosion in the Virginia mines about
:8 miles southwest of Birmingham at
4 o'clock this afternoon between iio
and 135 -union miners are entombed
and it is believed that the entire num
ber suffered death. Scores of vigor
ous rescurers are at work digging in
to the mine to relieve their friends
and comrades on the inside.
The explosion is beleved to have
been caused by an accumulation of
dust. It is' also believed that as the
entire quota has probably been killed
the details of the cause of the disaster
will never be known.
Birmingham, Ala., Feb. 21.-Of
the i6o miners of Virginia City, who
entered the mines yesterday after
r.oon, only fifty bodies have been re
covered so far. As time grows, not
withstanding the efforts on the part
of the rescurers to reach the entomb
ed men. the recovery already of fifty
dead bodies, precludes any idea that
life may still remain among the un
fortunates. With the first ominous
-rumble of the coming catastrope, by
common impulse every one in the vil
lage rushed to the mouth of the main
slope, fear struggling against hope
-for the safety of loved ones. The
scenes at the mines this afternoon
were the most gruesome and harrow
ing that have ever been witnessed in
-the mining section of Aalabama.
The corpses were frightfully man
gled and disfigured and identfication
is almost impossible. Many of the
-bodies are so bruised, twisted and dis
colored that Wgroes cannot be told
from white men.
All day long at the mouth of the
mine were waiting and moaning wo
men and children, whose relatives
were among the unfortunates. One
hundred families and three hundred
children are left destitute and with
out means of support.

in many cases have been gathered to

Public is Aroused.
The public is aroused to a knowledge
of the curative merits of that great
medicinal tonic, Electric Bitters, for
sick stomach, liver and kidneys. Mary
H. Walters, of 546 St Clair Avenue,
Columbus, 0., writes. "For several
months, I was given up to die. I had
fever and ague, my -nerves were
wrecked; I could not s1ep, and my
stomach was so weak, from useless
doctor's drugs, that I could not eat.
Soon after beginning to take Electric
Bitters, I obtained relief, and in a
short time I was entirely cured."

A Spelling Rule.
At a school inspection some ot the
boys found a difficulty in the correct
placing of the letters "i" and "e" in
such words as "believe." "receive,"
etc.. when the inspector said blandly.
"My boy. I will give you an infallible
rule, one I invariably use myselt."
The inspection continued: "It is
simply this, Write the "i" and "e" ex
actly alike and put the dot in the
middle over them."
This distressing ailment results from
a disordered condition of the stomach.
All that is needed to effect a cure is a
dose or two of Chamberlain's Stomach
and Liver Tablets. In fact, the attack
may be warded off, or greatly lessened
in severity, by taking a dose of these
Tablets as soon as the frst symptom of
an attack appears. Sold by Smith Dru

All Leaked Out.
"Of course," said the husband, who
made a specialty of manufacturmg
exceuses, "the truth is bound to leak

He writes: "At the age of 11 months,
our little girl was in declining health,
with serious Throat Trouble, and two
physicians gave her up. We were al
most in despair, when we resolved to

bottle gave relief; after taking four
bottles she was cured, and is now in

Startling But True.
People the world over were horrified
on learning of the burning of a Chicago
theater in which nearly six hnndred
people lost their lives, yet more than
five times this nnmber or over 3,000
people died from pneumonia in Chicago
during the same year, with scarcely a
passing notice. Every one of these
ca-es of pneumonia resulted from a
cold and could have been prevented by
the timely use of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. A great many who had every
reason to fear pneumonia have warded
it off by the prompt use of this remedy.
The following is an instance of this
sort: "Too much cannot be said in
favor of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
and especially for colds and infiuenza.
I know that it cured my daughter,
Laura, of a severe cold, and I believe
saved her life when she was threatened
with pneumonia." W. D. WILcOX,
