THE SORBIE SffifE HORROR. IROXTVOOD, Mich., Sept. SO.—All Thursday evening and all night long the 2,000 miners employed in the Norrie iron mine took turns at working in the relief party seeking to rescue the eleven jnen buried in No. S shaft by a fall .of ground Thursday morning.

Late in the evening signals were given by the relief party and answered by the entombed men by pounding on the iron pillar which, extends from the surface to the chambers where the men are imprisoned, so it is certain some of them were alive at that time. The scenes about the mouth of No. S shaft have been most harrowing.
