A section of prairie-land, forty by ninety foot, over which tho rloi ds hnd ox tended until tho water stood throe or four feet deep, suddenly caved In, tho result being" tho instantaneous flooding- of n mine in which ItOO men nnd boys were at work. Inside of h:tlf an hour tho witer had extende I to alt parts of tho working-9, and to nivbt it stands within fl vo feet of the topof tho main shaft. Heventy-four human b ilng-a wero choked to d nth in the grim recesses of the mine. NO HOPE. All hope of the po-wlblo rcscuo of nny of these unhappy being's by the penlnif of a drive-way Irom an old air-shaft ln'0 tho woi k fngs was abandoned nt dusk, when the water poured Into the bist-nnrned shaft, and the work men were compelled to abandon their last des perate attempt at the solvation of their fellows. The Diamond ooal-mlno la located in the ex treme corner of Will County, the little villag-o where the miners live being; just over the line in A MIRACLE. Tho escape of the majority whs almost by a miracle. Tho country around the mines Is an almost dead-level prairie, and tho recent tremendous rains have covered tho whole country with water.

Upon the spread, ing of the rumor luro crowds of nunen, wives, with ch idrcn in arms,riiHhed toward the scenoof tho catastrophe, anxious to hear of their husbands, brothers and sons who wer.: employed In tho mines. Whon the crowd reached the main entranc of th mine they lound everything In a ststtc of tho utmost con fusion. Around the ah a ft were a crowd ot anxious men and women, eug rly rendering any assistance that was poss.blo to tho half drowned miners who appeared at tho bottom of the shaft HOW THOSE WHO ESCAPED GOT OUT. To the north could also be seen a crowd of men collected around an air-shnft, who were likewise fishing out tho almost perishing minors who bad climbed to the top and would have sunk buck exhausted upon the grout, bad it not been for the assistance of the willing hands. Women wrung their hands, as, one by one, they an x iously viewed each new face that appeared above ground, but found not tho father or son who was missing, and for whom eome fell down upon their knees and prayed. The news was upon the lips of everyone. Friends anxious for tho safety of somo lost one hurriedly paced back and forth, trying to devlsj somo means of salvatou for tho poor creatures who wero penned up never to bit rescued alive.

Thomas Pmith, one of the miners at work In the mines, gives his experience as f llows: "I went lnlv the mine about six o'clock and irrade my way at once to the w -st dip,' about one mile from tho shaft. When 1 arrived at my layout I went to work, alter making some observat'ons upon the strength of the MoT, aa it Is my imial custom to do. With mo there was working a man who"Q name I do not know. About eleven o' lock we atn our din ner, and had just b 'gun to make a new inser tion into the scam when tho vo!c of the driver, Joe Keeloy, was beard not far away calling that tho water was coining Into tho mine. 1 had boen In the mine wnon It was flooded in 180, and so I knew of the dnnger that wo must run If we Stopped to block up our coal, ns somo of tho men did, nnd so we mado for he shmt, a mile distant, nt tho too of our spo d. As yet I had seen no water and 1 was Just begin ning to th'nk I would get out safe and dry whi'ii I heard a rushing sound of moving wa ter, and In a fow seconds a wave of water about one and a half feet h'gh eamn ruhtng around us, compelling us to rot 're Itefot e It io a place not far from where we hnd started, and wh"re another side gallery led to the air-huft. Spurred on by the belief that now escape was almost Impossible, we ran us hard as we eoMld down tho crooked passage, bobbing up and down on the undulating surface of tho road wny. h -n we were nltout itW foot from tho main shaft tho water aa-aln struck ns, and quickly rose to a depth of threo feet, so hiRh, inbxd, that it was utterly imp ssiblo for us to make nny speed toward our escape. Near the air-shaft there are several pi 'ccs whore the p-is-iU'O dipped and then ros Migaiii, forming a pit between ca?-h rise of the roadway. VN h n we reached this place the water was so high that wo had to swim aer tss these holes . and In doing so wo jammed our head attain t thn mo!', and, al most fainting from exhaustion, we at list cume out at the air shaft and were h"l cd up tho stoir.s by willing hand. I forgot to say that when 1 wus nearly up to the shaft ) cu'no across tw. boys who wore swioin lng In the same d ruction 1 was going. They criod out to me to help them, fv r they wero tired out, but I knew my only hope was in a rapid m vo, nnd so I was compelled t leave them bchiuJ to pent-h." Smith was the but nvm who ever came out of the m no ali c, and he was ns happy n roan as could be found anywhere. AFFECTING SCF.NEH AND HEFtOIf! PEKllfl. , . Thomas Daily, tho cn'reman, s tid: " Whon I got to tho top a terrible scone Struck my view, nnd one thi t I shall remember for tho rcstof my life. Near the t p of the shaft had collected nearly nil of tho v.llog--of Diimond women, men and children nil intent up n finding some friend wh had gone iu o tho mine in ttio morning, and who hnd In 1 k1 to ap- e ir. One ouugla ly was espo. dally notice able on Account of the distress wh c'i she ex hibit d when a gray-balred man announ ed to her tr.e fu t that her lover had p rif-hed In an isolated corridor and would never be seen by her alive. It was only by tb most cart ful itt e it o:i on the part of fcor friends that she was kept from throwing lur e f into tho murky darkncKS of t'le p t below. Near her was a young mother w ti her new-born babe in h r arms crying wildly tho name of her husband who hud perished in the relent less flood one. hundred feet below the eanh on wblcii sho fto.xl. lhe had been mar ried only two years, und had ju-it given b'rth to ht r second child a few days before and which she now held in her arms, in spitcof the relentless cold wind that swept oer the blen'c prairie. The cries of tho feeble child would have turned a heart of stone, nnd the awful surround ngs added to the piteous effoct. I hope that 1 may never be permitted to see such a sight again." If wo wore to make a list of the heroic deeds done at tho mine yesterday, such a record woul 1 chronicl" a vast amount of vnlor and bravery. Many of tho men r'Sked their lives In endeavors to do somothing that would less en the number of tho dead, and many more ble-bo lied heroes would only have been glad to have risked their lives for tbe m n had op portunity offered. A young man Frank Onley had fought his way to the bottom of tho shaft, and, unnble to ascend the steps bad clung to the boards for a moment, und then sank back into the water, never to be seen again alive. Frank Motto carried his exhausted son through the rapid current, and saved Mm by an aimo't superhuman effort, much to the Joy of the mother, who eagerly watched tho man as he carried the inanimnte form up tbe slippery steps and placed it in hor extended nrms. One of tho saddest of tho sad oaBcs was that of a man named 1 lereon, who was standi? g near the t- p of the main shaft looking down nnd intently watching for the arrival of somo new form from below, which ho hoped would bo bis son, who had not been rescued. An arm appeared above the surface of the water, nnd then tho Ftnall features of a boy rose to the surface, and re mained for a moment, only to sink ag:iln be neath the blackened waters. A glance was enough for the father, who recognised in tho features bis youngest son. With a despairing look tho fu! her sprung into the water, and worked long and hard to find tho body, but to no avail, for it bad sunk and floated under the arched wall. Tbe father had to bo lifted out, so exhausted was be in his struggle for the child. JOLIET, ILL., February 17. It is thought by practical miners that no bodies will bo recovered for at leant a few days, and until that time many a heart that feeds upon the hope that the men are still alive will beat hopefully und will never bo satisfied until the lif. lt as bodies aro laid out at the mouth of the shaft and Identified as thoso they hoped were stilt alive. The greatest excitement still prevails, and every one has at tongue's end some new tale of woe some story of a brave and lovod rela tive, cut off from friends and homo, porlabin g in the bowels of the earth. One of th saddest features of the case Is tho fact thut most of tbe drowned raon were men of families, who were deojnding on them f or support. What a scene of devastation and destitut on tbe town of Diamond presents one can icadily conceive when ho thinks that forty-six widows aro left to tell the talo of this, one of the mot horrbHdtt-altera that has ever been recorded in this Mate. ENTIRELY UNEXPECTED. Is to in the n cent In commenting on tbe Ilr.iidwood disastei tbe Chicago Inter Ocran says: ' Had any of the miners been told on Frh dav mom. ng that th -re was a poss bll.ty of tbe earth e nking under prcssuro of watcv gathered through natural causes on the sur fuce, they would have treated auob a supposi tion with contempt Tho calamity was as clearly in the line of the unexpected as waa tbe hurricane that swept through KansaBlat y ar, and it wou'd s um that wi h tho condi tions that ex luted thero was us little ctiicacy In ai y precaution that did not contemplate aban donment of the mine. Neither owners nor e nployesaeem to have thought thi.t accumulation of water on the surfaoe meant danger to those at work so many foot below thn surface. Tbe sudden slide of Lincoln Park into tbe lake would probably create no more surprise in Chicago than did the sudden dah of a lake into the mine at Uraidwuod. It Is almost as useless to mor allze on such dtBuaters as it is to Indulge In theories In regard to what might have been done to prevent them. But after what has oc curred at Itruidwod there can be no excuse for such a horrible mishap at any other mine similarly situated. A new dangor, or a new possibility of daugor, baa boen pointed out, und precautious ng.iinst even the remotely posulbiemay be taken." A ni.izzi.itD story from tbe Northweat: man went for a bucket of water, a d sj II let! little wbLe returnluK to the houe. lie put one foot on the wet spot, and before he could take another step he was frozen to the ground. He bad to leave his boot behind and bop to the house. N. T. Bun, In the Egyptian war one Knlish bullet every hundred did damage. In the Franco German war more than thirty Germuu shots in a hundred hit the eueuiy. It la said that Gustavo Dore, who died bachelor, fell In love with Adallne l'attl once. As she disappointed bim. he never cared for another woman. A Georou man broke bis Ink tbe other, day with a sneeze. :"' ' : '' lerrfrfef r V. A. I.
