trying to rescue the entombed laborers
another slide occurred, catching the
fourth man and hilling him. He was an
Italian, who had gone to the bottom of

about to cross in a peddler's wagon, and
ssked them to give him a ride across. The

the wagon. They had not proceeded far
when one of lh boys noticed the mau ty

The boys laughed, thinking the uiau was

But in another miuute he got on his

Hundreds of horror-stricken people stood
