Maun Damage Done Bat No One Was
An explosion of gas occurred In the
Mt. Lookout mine at Wyoming about
11.30 o'clock yesterday. The explosion
was In the south side of the mine near
what is known as Rapson's tunnel. A
large volume of gas had accumulated
in a chamber In which a miner was at
work and having a naked lamp, he set
it off. The explosion was something
terrilic and has made a wreck out of
that part of the mine. The miner es
caped Injury, as did others working
near the scene of the accident. The
force of the explosion was felt 3,000 feet
away. The timber and brattice work
were badly shattered and it was neces
sary to begin the work of repair at
Mine Foreman William Thomas und
his assistant, John McUraw. have a
gang of men at work repairing the
damaged parts, and timber Is being sent
down the mine as fust as it can be
done. It Is thought that it will take
some days to repair the damage. It
seems miraculous that all of the min
ers working in that part of the mine
escaped being burned. Soon after the
explosion considerable excitement pre
vailed, the miners getting to the sur
face as quickly as possible.

President Isaac Lewis of Sab'ma, Ohio,
: U highly respected all through that
! scctiou. lie has lived in Clinton Co.
! 7S years, and hus been president of
thc'Subiua Bank 20 years, lie gladly
testifies to the merit of Hood's Sarsa-
pnrilln, nud what he says is worthy
attention. Ail brain workers find
Hood's SursntJitrilla peculiarly adapted
to their needs. It mukes pure, rich,
red blood, and from this comes nerve,
mental, bodily and digestive strength.
"I am glad to say that Hood's Earsapa-
I rilln is a very good medicine, especially
h a blood purifier. It has done me good
many times. For several yean I Buffered
greatly with pains of
in one eye and about my temples, es
pecially at night when I had been having
a hard day of physical and mental labor.
I took many remedies, but found help only
in Hood's Sareaparilla which cured me of
rheumatism, neuralgia . and headache.
Hood's Sarsaparllla has proved itself true
friend. I also take Hood's Pills to keep
my bowels regular, and like the pills
very much." Isaac Lewis, Sablna, Ohio.
