A Ride from these there may be other
English-speaking miners among the un
fortunates. Thirty Polanders and Huns
were entombed, end it is thought that the
total number of bodies in the mine will
reach 100. The men were at work nron-
ping up the roof when the fall occurred.
The alarm was immediately Riven by the
ringing of the fire bells, and rescuers were
put to work without delay. Up to this
writing not a single body has been found.
More than two thirds of the victims were
married men and leave families. Lansan.
who was inside superintendent of the
mine, was also acting mayor of the town,
and J. H. Linott was a ward councilman.
Attempted ta Stop a flqnii
About two weeks ago the surveyors re
ported to General Superintendent Law that
the mine was "squeezing," and that unless
steps were immediately taken to timber it
a cave-In or fall might be looked for.
Superintendent Law lost no time, but at
once put a number or tinibermen at work
to brace the falling roof. The "squeeze"
continued, howerer, and Saturday the
situation became alarming. In the after
noon a slight fall occurred, and the men
who were at work had to retreat before it
A consultation of mine officials was then
held and it was decided that heroic meas
ures would have to be resorted to If henry
damages to the mine were to be prevented.
Inside Superintendent Langan gave in
structions that the most experienced min
ers should bo secured, and that the party
would go down the mine at 7 o'clock.
Haw tk Honor Probably Owearraa,
Expert timbermcn put in an appearance
at that hour and were soon lowered into
the workings. . They made their way to
Rod Ash vein, 1,800 feet down the slope.
The work of propping proceeded rapidly
until 11 o'clock, when another fall occur
red. It made a low, rumbling, noise and
the flying cool and debris drove the men
back. Then the "squeeze" ceased again,
and the men thought it was safe to resume
work. They labored on until S:ao o'clock,
when so it is presumed the roof fell in
without warning, making a tremendous
crash. It is supposed, however, that the
men were not all together, but some near
the slope, and these probablv ran un tha
incline wnen tne lau occurred.
Bare P...lbmt That Krata.
The falling rock and coal filled up the
lope ana tne adjoining gangways, com
pletely shutting off aU avenues of es
cape. It was at first supposed that the
men might have escaped being caught in
the fall, and that they were imprisoned
behind the debris, but the facts that are
known would go to disprove this. It
is still possible, however, that living men
may still be behind the fall, although it is
extremely improbable. Kven if they es
caped being crushed by the falling roof
the possibility of their being alive for any
length of time in a gaseous mine is re
mote. KKSCTK WORK QUICKLY BEGTOt.

The alarm was first given by Water Car
rier John Sheridan. He with William
Rechard and Thomas Gill were the only
ones to escape of the whole party who en
tered the mips. Ho was on his way up
the slope to get some fresh water for the
men, and when about 100 feet from tho
foot of the shaft was knocked down by th
conouMkm. He was badly cut and bruised
by flying coal and rock. The concuaslon
was so great that it was beard for miles
round. The foundations of nearly every
building In Pittston were shaken, and
window, and door, rattled. In the houses
near to the mine persons were thrown
from their beds. The first thought was
that a great earthquake had occurred and

Many People Surprised. Many Incredulous, but Hun
dreds Availing Themselves of It
The Offer is to be Carried Oat to the Very Letter, and All
who Apply before July 6 will Receire Medicines
and Treatment Absolutely Free without
Money and Without Price.
The announcement made in the
daily paper of this city daring the
last week that DRS. YORK A CRAW
FORD would until July 6, treat all
patients who came to them free,
made a singular not to say notable
It ta safe to say that no announce
ment ever made in the columns of
any newspaper was ever received
with such decided astonishment by
'It cannot be true." some said.
"there most be some mistake about
it. These gentlemen certainly do
not mean that they are going to treat
every one free and furnish them
medicine. Why, the bank of Entr-
iana couia not stana sacn expense.
m s a m. . a .
It was almost amusinsr to listen to
the questions that were pat to these
"I cannot understand." one patient
said. "Do you positively mean that
you will treat me and give me medi
cine ana not charge a cent? Why
should you do it? What do you do
'It seems too good to be true."
said another. "I don't know why
you should make this offer, but I
am very glad to avail myself of it.
Doctor," said another, "is there
not some trick about it? I cannot
for the life of me understand why
you are willing to give away yoar
services and medicine without re
ceiving anything for them."
And so through the crowds of vis
ltors ran the same current of incred
ulity and astonishment. Not a dol
lar was received from anyone. Nor
was any agreement made to take
money at any future time.
There need be no occasion for mis
understanding or misinterpreting
this oner. It meant just what it
says, that all patients applying for
treatment before July 6th are to be
treated and furnished with medicines
for two weeks . absolutely without
DRS. YORK AND CRAWFORD do
not make this offer for benevolent or
charitable purposes. It is entirely
a matter of business with them. It
is their method of introducing them
selves and their work to the readingj
No one. whether rich or poor, need
have the slightest hesitancy of avail
ing themselves of this opportunity.
These physicians make certain.
clear and distinct claims as to their
superior skill as specialists, and they
offer the publio this opportunity of
tasting the merit of these claims.
That is all there is about it.

at first produced only the annoyance
of the constant dripping from the
nose into the throat, characteristic
of this malady, seemed as it became
chronic, to effect the memory so that.
at last, i oouia not speak or preach
without notes or manuscript.
