The fire w'as hotter today than it has been at any time. The chances are, it was said today, that no one could enter the mine for a week.

During the taking of the test, pa thetic appeals from the unfortunate women of Cherry for the shaft to bo opened forced the officials to turn their heads. MOORE IS PAROLED.
