THE 8BMIN0LE NEWS
25 PFRISH IN
THERE WAS 100 MEN IN THE
MINE AT TIME OF
MANY ARE STILL MISSING
8ome of The Men in The Mine Es-
caped by Climbing Ropes and
Cables 250 Feet to The
Oates, Pa.—All hope for the miners
Iniuprisoned by an explosion in the
Oules mine of the II. C. Prick Coke
company, was abandoned when rescue
ciews came across seven bodies in
the workings affected by the blast.
18 bodies had previously been brought
to the surface. Checking the work-
men believed to have been in the
mine, officials said the men still un-
accounted for had probably perished.
One statement by a company offi-
cial said about 100 miners were at
work at the time of the explosion, but
that some had escaped by use of
ropes and cables by which they
clambered up the 2511-foot shaft.
The entrance to the mine is a pic-
ture of horror. At the base of the
shaft are the bodies of the live dead
Dead Not Identified.
They have not been identified. The
bodies of some of the victims are
charred so badly that they probably
never will be identified.
Sam Drown, former Boston Braves
catcher, directed the rescue work.
His wife is aiding him. Drown is su
perintendent of the mine. State
troopers were dispatched to the mine
to aid in the rescue and preserve or-
der. The mine in which the explo-
sion occured is the largest of the six-
ty-three mines of the company.
Following the report that an ex-
plosion had occured in the mine,
men, women and children gathered at
the mouth of the shaft awaiting news
of their relatives who were in the
mine when the explosion took place.
The explosion occured in a section
so far back in the workings that its
force was spent before it could reach
the bottom of the 680-foot shaft.
The alarm was sent toto the village
and all day shift mines immediately
turned out in rescue squads. Even
the women joined but were not per-
mitted to go into the shaft.

Washington, D. C.—Dank of the
corn belt, it was charged at the de-
partment of agriculture, have discrim-
inated against growers of live stock
using funds advanced by the war fi-
nance corporation, for agricultural
purposes to liquidate debts of the fed-
eral reserve board instead.
Many livestock growers, Secretary
Wallace had been informed, were in
need of livestock to which to feed the
surplus corn crops, and upon applying
to the banks for loans, had been re-
fused. Large sumB already had been
advanced to the corn belt by the war
finance corporation, it was said, but
there was unmistakable eveidence
now, it was added, that much of this
had not found ite way to the farmers,
for whose relief it was advanced.
Interest rates charged to fafmers
in many parts of the country have
been “outrageous and wholly unjusti-
fied,” Secretary Wallace asserted,
pointing to reports reaching him
■which included one of 10 per cent with
an additional 16 percent to the agent
making the loan. Others were re-
ported as 7 to 10 percent for five years
and 8 percent for ten years.

THIN FRML PEOPLE
SHOULD ME TANLAC
Hundreds of Men and Women All Over America
Appear To Be Physical Wrecks Simply Be-
cause Their Systems Are Starving
There are hundreds of thin, run-down, nervous men and women
all over the United States who should be strong, sturdy and
vigorous, with rich, red blood tingling through their veins and
feeling brimful of life and energy, if they would only profit by the
experience of others all over the United States and Canada, and
assist nature to digest the food they eat, by simply taking Tanlac.
Millions of people have not only
been relieved of the most obstinate
forms of dyspepsia ami Indigestion by
Tanlac after other remedies have
failed, but large numbers of them
have reported n remarkable and rapid
increase in weight and a return to nor-
mal health and strength by its uije.
In fact, so phenomenal have been
the gains in weight by thin, frail peo-
ple through the use of Tanlac that
this remarkable preparation Is now
being proclaimed everywhere ns the
World’s Greatest Tonic.
The food people eat does them ab-
solutely no good unless they digest it
properly. When you suffer from in-
digestion and other forms of stomach
trouble, the food does you harm In-
stead of good, because food which Is
not digested stays in the stomach and
ferments, causing pains, swelling, gas
on stomach, shortness of breath, bad
taste in the month, dizziness and
many other disagreeable symptoms.
If this condition is permitted to run
on for an indefinite period the entire
system becomes saturated with poi-
sons, the patient becomes thin anil
pale und in time various complications
are apt to result.
Tunluc is a powerful reconstructive
tonic and quickly overcomes this con-
dition by aiding nature to eliminate
tlie impurities from the system in a
natural way and enable tlie vital or-
gnns to properly perform their func-
tions. That is why it is called Na-
In fact, there Is not a single por-
tion of the fiody that is not benefited
by the helpful action of Tanlac, which
begins its work by stimulating the di-
gestive nnd assimilative organs, there-
by enriching the blood nnd invigorat-
ing tlie entire system. Next, it en-
nbles the weak, worn-out stomach to
thoroughly digest its food nnd convert
the nourishing elements Into bone,
blood nnd muscle. The result Is you
feel strong, sturdy nnd well with the
proper amount of flesh, as Nature In-
tended. Sold by nil good druggists.
