LAKE DRYING UP.
Budapest.—The biggest lake in
Hungary, Lake'' Balaton,, covering
about 360 square miles, would appear
slowly to be drying up. In .somei.
places, the water has receded a-mile'
from the old shore line within' a few
.years and the shrinking continues.
No one can. give an explanatidh,
particularly as there "has been plenty
of rain recently. Geologists say that
volcanic changes in the bed of the
lake are responsible.

when crews of diggers resumed today
their task of reaching the spot walled

where 47 workers Irr the Argonaut

for twelve days..
It seemed' yesterday that the res
cuers would release only corpses. An
official of the company had expressed
the belief that all the entombed
miners were dead and every evidence
apparently pointed to that. Yet, late
last nigh't came the astonishing an

demonstrated that the men all were
alive. Argonaut officials said they
were preparing a formal' statement
declaring it their opinion that none
of the miners had perished. The of
ficials backed up their assertion with
the offer of a reward' of $5,000 to the
first crew' reaching the miners.
A delicate instrument, it was ex
plained, had been lowered into the
fiery and gaseous shaft through which
the men had gone. It had recorded
no gases indicating the presence of
a single dead body. ,-**•
Moreover,, it. was reported to show
that noxious gases had not penetrated
