KILLED BY A SNOWSLIDE.
"wo Well-Known 1'roi.pertors at the Km
erald Mine, Colorado.
Tbllurjde, Feb. 6 A note was received
yesterday by Sam Wig from John Real,
of Ophir, to the effect that John B. Ward,
better known as Jack WTard, and Jack
Vanscoy were killed in a snowslide at the
.merald mine, in Waterfall
which the men
were workinsr. Ward and
Vanscoy left Ophir four weeks ngo for the
mine, and when leaving said they would
return to Ophir in two weeks. At the ex
piration of three weeks the men had not
returned and some uneasiness was felt in
regard to their safety.
Carried Their Cabin Away.
Several searching parties were sent out
during the past ten days, but none suc
ceeded m reaching the mine, the snow
having drifted and blocked the trail. Sat
urday another party -was sent out from
vpniranu ny strenuous exertion and un
told hardships succeeded in getting through
the snow and reaching the mine. Upon
arriving they saw at a glance what had
happened. A tremendous snowslide had
come down within the past few days and
had in its course .struck the cabin in which
Ward and Vanscoy lived and. . carried it,
with the men, several hundred yards.;
Their Bodies Lie Under the Snow.
Their bodies lie under a deep and com

old. He had been in Colorado many years

DANVILLE, Ills., Feb. 6. -The funeral of
Phocian Howard took place yesterday
afternoon at I o'clock. During his life
time Phocion often said he did not desire
to be buried in a cemetery and for his final
resting place selected a small knoll on the
east side of his forty-acre farm, three miles
southeast of Danville in the valley of Stony
creek. The knoll is close to the hiWi.v
and commands an excellent view of the
small estate and neighboring farms. It was
at this place that he hn rim) m fa t'rnit
