There Is no chance that any will bo

tho terrific force of the explosion

will not lie possible for rescuers to
reach the bottom of tho shaft for forty-eight
Tho disaster is pethnps tho worst,
in the number of killed, in the history
of this state. Most of tho men were
Americans and many or them wens
married nnd had largo ramllies. There
were a dozen or more colored men and
about twenty aliens among tho vic

About two hours after tho explosion
three men wcro lowered Into tho mlno
In an improvised bucket. Before be

to the mine by several large Tans, but
the mechanism was damaged and tho
fans weie idle several hours. Tho
fans hnve started again nnd If tho
men were not nil killed it may ho
they will have air enough to survive
until the rescuers reach them.
The Stuart mine bus only one open

Bodies of Miners Killed In Prussian
Saarbruecken, Rhenish Prussia, Jan.
30. An official report places the num
ber of dead in the Reden mine explo

been brought out. Escaping gas from

tihowed that the lire was diminishing.
General Mannger von Vclsen, with
180 men, started Into tho mlno to res

machinery began to bring bodies rap
Mljr to the surface.
Storiea told by some of the rescued
iwiners show a number of hairbreadth
escapes. One mnn said:
"Wo were resting for breakfast,

Tho disaster would have been much
greater but for the fact that threo

SOLDIERS ON TRIAL FOR MURDER
Prosecution Finishes Case Against
Lieut. Drury and Private Dowd.
Pittsburg, Jan. 20. Testimony to
show that William Crowiey, after ho
had cried out: "I'll give up, don't
shoot, lellow," was shot by Private
John Dowd on orders from Lieutenant
Ralph Drury of tho United States
army, was given at the trial of there
two men for murder. The case is re
garded as the most important of its
kind that has been tried in a decade.
Tho commonwealth Is prosecuting,
whiio tho government la defending,
tho soldiers. Some sensational testi
mony for the prosecution, met by
equally surprising hints as to the line
oT defense to be followed, was brought
out In the cross-examination of wit
nesses. The iiuostion nt issue concerns tho
right of a United States soldier to kill
another man outside of federal prop
erty who is suspected of having com
mitted a crime within govornment
property. A jury was procured and
just before adjournment of court tho
prosecution finished its case.
The defense, ns outlined to tho jury,
sets up that tho theft or copper from
the arsenal hy Crowloy would bo
proved, that witnesses for the prose
cution contradicted themselves, that
the fatal shot was fired after repeated
warnings to halt, thnt Crowley would
have escaped had lie not been shot
when he was and that finally this will

BEECHER'S ONLY POEM.
The Verses Wcro Always Kept Sacred
by Mrs. Beecher.
It was related ly -Mrs. Henry Wnnl
P.eecher that (hiring their courtship Mr.
Heccher once "dropped Into poetry"
and wrote a few lines of verse teeming
with affection for his sweetheart. But
the verges were always kept sacred by
Mr.s. Beecher, and nothing could win i
them from her. One day Mr. nnd Mrs
Beecher were In the office of Robert
Bonner, the publisher.
"Why doift you write a poem, Beech
or'!" said Mr. Bonner.
"He did once," said Mrs. Beecher.
"Recite It for me, won't you, Mrs.
But the eyes of the great preacher
were riveted on his wife, and she knew
that he meant silence.
"Come." said Mr. Bonner, "I'll give
you ?.",u00 if you will recite that poem
to me," addressing Mrs. Beecher.
"Why, It run" quickly said Mrs.
"Hunice!" simply aid Mr. Beecher.
And, although Robert Bonner after
ward ofl'ero 1 to double the sum first
offered, he never got the poem from
Mrs. Beeclur. It had been hidden
away by Mr.-?. P.eecher nnd cherished
as one of the dearest treasure-! her
husband left her.
"Antique Peixi.m rugs," said the rug
salesman, "'ire dyed with vegetable
dyes; the new ones are dyed with ani
line dyes. There's u great difference.
Vcvtnblo dyes are fifty or sixty times
moiv expensive than anilines, and they
give a color that Is literally Imperish
able, n color that keeps growing richer
and richer' till the rug falls to pieces.
Anilines, made out of coal tar, look
well enough at first, but they fade.
When a vegetable red or blue would be
at its best an aniline red or blue would
be nearly white. We civilized people
harmed the Chinese by introducing our
cheap opium among them, nnd now we
have equally harmed the Persian rug
by Introducing our cheap anilines
among the rug weavers."
Tho Hydrophobia Monaco.
Since hydrophobia l.s transmitted by
inoculation and its virus resides in the
saliva of Its victim, the only absolute
safeguard Is to keep dogs muzzled
when at large. A muzzle Is a nuisance
no doubt and In the immense ma
jority of cases needless, for almost
fnvnrlubly the mischief maker Is tho
slra.v cur, belonging to no one In par
ticular and coming from nobody knows
where. But It seems impracticable to
frame an effective regulation for the
protection of the public from such Ir
responsible and dangerous creatures
without making It applicable to all
dogs. New York Tribune.
Limit of Economy.
"I don't mind a young man econo
mizing when he is out with mo." sighed
tho girl, "but It seems to me that when
he takes you In a penny In tin; slot ma
chine parlor, drops n penny In u slot
nnd hands you one of the ear things
while ho takes the other the limit hns
just about been reached. Of course you
can hear tho opera almost as well with
one ear, but how does It look?" New
The lady was making some remarks
about the kind or clothes some other
ladles at church had 011.
"Tho lluest garment a woman can
wear," said her husband, "Is tho man
tle of charity."
"Yes," she snapped, "and It's about
the ouly one some husbands want their
wives to wear."

Snnrhnitck, Rhenish Prussia, Jan.
29. A firedamp explosion occurred

Seventy-seven bodies lmvo been
brought out and llfty-slx corpses arc
known to bo tinder uround. Only fifty

of these tho doctors say at least thlr-ty-llvo
will die, as thoy are frightfully
injured thiougn Having been nttrieu ' a
against tho walls of tho galleries by ! J
the force of the explosion.
An official report says the number
of dead cannot exceed 100.
Immediately after tho explosion rcs-
CM0 workot-d were hurried from nil tho
adjacent mines and boldly entered the
Reden hhnft In great numbers. The
work of rescue hns been greatly ham-
pored by tho poisonous gases resulting
from the explosion nnd by a fierce lire
Hint broke out Immediately nfter
wards. This caused errorts at rescue
to bo suspended and tho workers had
to be oidered out of the mine.
After all tho rescuers had. reached
daylight, according to ouo version, a
second terrific detonation was heard
uudoi ground. Hut, according to an
other report, many of the rescuers
were still below when tho second ox-
plosion occurred, nnd it is estimated
that the casualty list from the two ex
plosions reaches a total of 300.
It is regarded as certain that tho
lowest levels of tho mines are com
pletely wrecked, nnd tho inspectors
are deliberating upon further mens-
ures to got control of tho lire. The i
managers aro discussing the advisabll
ity of flooding those levels as tho only
means of extinguishing tho flames. It
Is believed thnt all the men who weie ,
in the lower levels assuredly arc '
dead. It will take a full week to en
ter and explore tho mine.

Explosion in West Virginia Mine Re
sult of Criminal Negligence.
Weston, W. Va., Jan. 28. District
Mine inspector Barton took charge of
tho situation at the mine or tho Penn
sylvania Consolidated Coal company
and a searching investigation Is being
made into the cause of the explosion
which killed twelve men Saturday. A
coroner'b jury devoted tho day to In
vestigating the nffalr. The testimony
Indicates criminal negligence on the
part of a miner. Several kegs or pow
der were left at the bottom of tho
Miaft, 100 feet below the surrece, and
it is thought tho powder must have
been ignited from a cigar or ashes in
the pipe of one or tho thirty minors
who wore being enrried up in tho cage
when the explosion occurred.
