Is it possible to pierce the veil of death ana establish coTcmcnicatlon between separate i planes of existence? Are dreams ! authentic warnings?

A foreman, who descended tbe shaft Monday night to negotiate a relief, was also beld below. Heavy police guards surrounded the shaft but communications ceased at 10 p. nx. The 2OO miners had sone down tbe shaft unsuspectingly, bat when they left tbe elevator at the l.OOO-foot level the rebellions group suddenly rushed them, barricaded the galleries, and cut the power lines. The group which trapped the other minors is sharing the fate of its prisoners. Authorities said most of the miners were Poles and that, therefore, they were more or less In sympathy with earh other. They said It was perfectly possible for the men to escape by ladders and that hunger might force such an escape. asks that women attending come with, an escort. The unusual of tbe show taking place at midnight (for the mystic performance will be preceded by a picture), is sucla that excitable persons may need special care, therefore there • <lren do not attend this show, and will be a physician in attendance.
