Christmas, mourns the loss of her love.
Volunteered to : Down First.
Deeds of heroism w hich are numerous,
cannot be recounted in detail, though they
certainly deserve it. Conspicuous, how
ever, is the act of Edward Morgau, who
was the lii-st man to inter the death hole.
Other miners volunteered to accompany,
but were urged back by him. 'It is use
less to expose an unnecessary number of
lives to sacriiice," said he. 'T w ill go dow n
and ascrtain the danger and you can fol
low if it is sufe."' Eortaunti-ly it was safe
and the volunteers have worked nobly in
the rescue of theii imprisoned brothers.

A horrible sight met the rescuing parties
as this bottom of the shaft was reached.
Here a head, there a hand or leg protruded
from the mass of fallen rock. A number
of burned lamps, caps, and dinner-pails
completed the desolation of the scene.
The bodies were removed with all possible
care: but this did not prevent an arm or a
leg, almost severed from the body, from
beingjcompletcly torn off when taken from
undt the wreckage. The force of the ex
plosion was terrific. It literally tore the
mine all to pieces. It closed up the gal
leries, tore down the barricades, which
kept the air from circulating freely
through the unused portion of the
tuine, thus cutting off. alj air from the
