killed by a siinlhir cxp'utdon.
A Round like thunder reverhrated

tons of earth and stone that lay
between the workings and the moun
tains, Riant trees quivered from the
force of the concussion, and from the
mine mouth belched forth a cloud of
flame, soot, dust and debrU, heavy .
timbers, broken mine cars and even aj
massive motor. 1
Scarcely had the detonation died
away before a throng of terrorized
women and childien rushed to the
mine mouth and Implored those there
to allow them to aid in the effort to
save some of their loved ones who
might still he alive within.
Mine Foreman Mowers, who was
near the entrance, wns blown from
his feet, but managed to crawl out
safety as also did Robert Smith a
miner. A reseuo party, organized on
the moment, rushed Into the smoking
mine and tried to rescue a miner
named Halllday who was hurled back
by the blast. They were driven back
by the deadly fumes of the after
gases and were lotnpelled to leae
him to his fate.

People who were near the mine at
the time of the explosion say Immense
clouds of soot and smoke gushed from
the mine almost simultaneously with
the detonation. On the Tug river side
four miles 'rotii the main entrance,
the smoke and names gushed from the
entry, burning the twigs and small
limbs from the trees that grew near.
The explosion was the worst that
