It seems strange, but at the same time there is a general interest in Nell Owyn, not alone in tnis country, but also in Europe, and since Miss Crossman first produced "Mistress Nell" in Denver last Spring, there has been two plays in which Nell Gwyn figured presented in London showing that in the English capital the fact is recognized that Hen rietta Crossman has a great success in her new play in America.

Armstrong Co.. last ( Saturday. Mrs. Wm. Flick, and her son i and daughter, were overcome by black- j ! damp, in a coal mine, and died shortly: j 1 and John Wilson, a miner, was not ex- , pected to live. The story of the death of the three members is a peculiar one. j Early in the morning John Flick went j into the mine. He was to have returned at noon. The family waited dinner on i him for some time, and then thinking 1 that he had forgotten the time of day, sent Nellie into the mine to ask him to come home for dinner. Nellie had gone into the mine but a short distance when she was overcome by blackdamp. The frmily waited some time for the son and daughter to return, and then fearing that something had happened to the son and daughter. Mrs. Flick started in search qf her two children. Sometime elapsed and she did not return when 1 the alarm was given. Miners flocked ( to the mine from all around, and volun-, teers were easily found to enter and j search for the lost members of the j family. John Wilson, who belonged to j the rescuing party, was overcome by the j deadly blackdamp, and is in a serious j condition. The 1 todies of the three members of the Flick family were re- j moved from the mine, and taken to i their home. The bodies were found only a short distance apart, all having been overcome by the blackdamp. IsELJGMAN, ✓ 416 W. Jefferson St., * MERCHANT*TAILOR; v'/ Full kine of Foreign and Domestic Suitings.
