The explosion was felt throughout the camp rocking houses and causing the inhabitants to believe that an earthquake had visited that section, and the populace, so rudely awakened, fled terror stricken from their homes. Kxeitement soon was Intense. The latest information tonight is that twenty men were In the mine and it is the general belief that all are dead. At 7 o’clock to-night a total of four bodies had been recovered, the name of only one being given. He was Frank Hobat. a miner, whose body was re covered this morning near the main entrance to the mine. Among the known dead is R J. hum icy, the fire boss, who is believed to be the only American caught In the disaster, the others being Italians and Austrians.

The mine in which the explosion oc curred is known ns the North mine. It being located north of the other mines of that camp. I*ate to r.lcht the mine had only been penetrated 200 feet through the main entrance The work of the rescue party Is most difficult.

News of the explo sion went quickly tbrutish the ramp this morning and within a few minutes the main entrance wns surrounded with frnntlc women and chlldien look ing for their husbands, brothers, fath era and sons Many of the women In their excitement attempted to nsslst the miners in gaining entrance to the mine, but they soon saw that their efforts were futile nnd then it slowly dawned upon them that all in the mine were dead.

Oil of the White Pine Tree Used Suc cessfully by Physicians in Treat ing Consumptive Patients. The Oil of the Pine Tree Is sup posed to be the balm of Scripture. It contains great medicinal properties and was regarded wltn the utmost esteem by the ancients, and to the present day is peculiarly prized by the people of the East. A noted authority on diseases of the throat and lungs, who established a camp for consumptives in the Pine Woods of Maine, says that his entire treatment consisted of fresh air, nourishing food and the Pure Virgin Oil of the White Pine Trees, mixed with Whisky and Glycerine in the fol lowing proportions: Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure). . y a oz. Glycerine 2 “ Good Whisky 8 " Used in teaspoonful doses every four hours. It is claimed the above mixture will heal and strengthen the lungs, break up a cold in twenty-four hours, and cure any cough that is curable. The ingredients can be secured from any good prescription druggist at small cost, and can be easily mixed in your own home. Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure) is put up only in half-ounce vials for dispensing Each vial is securely sealed in a round wooden case with engraved wrapper with the name—Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure), prepared only by Leach Chemical Co.. Cincinnati. O plainly printed thereon. There are many rank imitations of Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure), which are put out under various namoF. such as Con centrated Oil of Pine. Pine Pal sum. etc. Never accept these as a substitute for the Pure Virgin Oil of Plnr. as they will invariably produce nausea and never effect the desired result. Berth Was Reserved. Franklin K.

Interstate com mcrce commission will not allow it " He fired a wire back reading "By what authority do you say interstate commerce commission will not allow you to reserve a berth in a sleeping car?" The Pullman agent answered "Py the authority of a recent ruling ” Mr. Ijine was Interested by this time and he telegraphed: "I am a member of the interstate commerce commis sion and am not familiar with the rul ing. Give me a reference." And a short time afterward ho received thie telegram: "Berth reserved." Life Without Mind.

While amphibious vehicles are not in themselves a novelty, it is safe to declare the combination conveyance just built in England for an Indian maharajah as absolutely unique. The body, shaped like a boat and painted in rainbow hues in accordance with eastern ideas’of color, is hung upon a four-wheeled skeleton carriage. While intended by its owner as a state carriage, it may be used on occasions as a state boat, as the body can be unslung and converted into an electric launch. The skeleton carriage is about 15 feet long and is provided with four rubber-tired wheels. There is a seat for a driver and room for four in the boat-shaped coach. The total weight of the outfit is less than one ton.
