He all but col- lapsed as he was carried home to his mother. The digging'of the qhaft through 78 feet of earth and limestone took three days and nights. Clary had been entombed 72 hours The rescuers during the last few hours had to work at topmost speed as the ground through which the shaft was being sunk cracked open and threatened every instant to cave in, burying them as well as making the rescue of Clary practically im Clary was none the worse tor his experience. When the rescuers announced late yesterday that the drill hole five inches in diameter, had pene- trated the drifts, a shout went up Trom the two hundred who and gath- ered about the mouth of the mine But the noise was followed by the stillness of death when the workers signaled for quiet that the man if alive, might be heard. "Hello, there! Hello, a man shouted down the narrow shaft. Several seconds elapsed. Then came a feeble answering "hello." Food and drink in a small can were immediately passed down to Clary. After the lapse o'f a few minutes Clary cried up the tube: j "Water about three feet deep in I some places in drift. I am on high place, and. it may not reach me il you hurry..
