Co///e Dog Stands Watch 19th Day in Strange Vigil at Mine CITY. Mo. iff) —A gaunt Scotch collie dog stood watch at. an aoondoned mine today—the 19th day of its strange visit And as the dog watched, volnn- Irer workers renewed their efforts o solve the niystery-if any-of the flooded lead mine. No one knows why th<> snlmal ha.s remained at the brink of the mine shaft, near this tiny Southwestern Missouri town. Residents of the area speculate that perhaps the dog's owner met with foil! play or accidentally tumbled into the shaft.. But no one has : been reported missing. i County Prosecutor George Henry' said he was convinced something of importance will be found. I The latest effort by volunteer workers to delve into the mine Is a pumping operation. They hope to pump oiil enough wnlcr to uncover a platform that span? the shaft 125 feet below the surface. The platform presumably would stop any object lhat might have fallen into the tnine. I UIHOTUS opcralions carried on I nnrlior proved fruitless. ' The do? is a stranger in Ihe com- j mtinity. | Nearby residents and the humane society have provided Ihe collie with food and a doghouse. Earlier this week the animal col- lap.spd. A report it had been poisoned brought out Biliary poljce from nearby Joplin, Mo., but by the time police arrived at |,he shaft, the dog had revived.
