WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. The sudden
and unexpected appearance in Venezuela
of General Clprlano Castro to take per
eonol command of the revolutionary
forces confronts the State department
with a grave problem. Secretary Bryan
declined today to say what would, be the
attitude of the United States toward the
presence of the unwelcome exile In the
land from which ho was banished flvo
j ears ago.
The Taft administration not only ap
proved of Castro's exile from Venezuela,
but sought by every means, although-
without success, to prevent Mm from
landing In this country last winter. Of
ficials realize that Castro's persqnu.1 ill
rectlon of the Insurrection will make the
movement far more formidable.
Tho cruiser Des Moines will leave
Brunswick, Go., Monday for Ia Gualra,
expecting to reach that port Friday,
Henry F. Tennant of the State depart
ment, who is going to Caracas to take
charge of tho legation pending the ap
pointment of a new minister, will leave
Washington tonight and will proceed to
Venezuela on tho Des Moines.

An overwhelming government army has

"Crime extends its horriblo wings over

"The crazy and ferocious Gomez bears
on his forehead the eternal mark of a

fidious smile encourage his followers to
finish the ruin of the fatherland.
"Heroic Venezuela acclaims .me again
to revindicate its rights.
"I am a slave to honor and duty and 1

"My program In regard to domestic af

John Farroll, colliery boss, are believed
to have lost their lives In on effort to
rescue tho men caught In the first ex

There was an amplo force of workmen
at the opening to push tho work of
rescue, but because of the. deadly after
damp work was necessarily slow until
tho mlno rescue car arrived from I'otts
vlllo with Its apparatus.
Because of the dull season and light
demand for anthracite coal the Heading's
mines are operated only three or four
days a week, and the Eust Brooksldo
colliery closed down Thursday for the
week. Charles Portland, a mining con
tractor of PottBVllle, was engaged In
driving a tunnel through the rock at tho
East Brookslde working. Tho opening
to tills mine is by means of a olmft. A
gangway leads from the bottom of the
shaft and the funnel Is being driven
from the gangway. It was in this tun
nel that rockmen were working. It Is
supposed that a big charge of dynamite
was exploded which probably created
fearful havoc and loss of life.

An alarm was sent to the surface and
Superintendent Lorens, Colliery Boss
Farreil, Fire Boss McGlnley and Fire

Looking Out For
the Main Chance
No matter what theorists may say
about the pursuits and pleasures ot
mankind, thero is one hard, Incontro
vertible fact that we must admit; We
are looking out for the main chance
Have you ever stopped to think what
the "main chance" Is7 It Is the op
portunity to make and to spend money
to our own greatest advantage;
It Is the greatest mistake to be
lieve a man rich because ho has a
good slied Income; he may be poorer
than the man with half the amount
A man's financial Btatus should be
judged not by what he makes, but by
the relative amounts of his Income
and his expenditures.
Have you ever thought that with
an income of two thousand a year you
may be better off at tha end of five
years than tho man with five thous
and? It la all a question of how wlseli
and how well you use what you have
that produces the ultimate result.
If you feel that you havo not been
quite as careful as you should be in
your expenditures, make a practice ot
reading TUB BHE advertisements
and you will see where many a dol
lar may be saved by buying at the
right time and place.
