BURIED 17 HOURS BUT UNHURT.
Miner Is Rescued Alive — He Quits Work and Later Drops Dead.
Helena, Mont., June 2.—As a result of a cave-in at the famous Hope mine at Basin Charles Collins, miner, was caught beneath many tons of depris and rescuers were more than surprised at the end of seventeen hours to find him absolutely uninjured, the timbers having protected him. So great was the fright superinduced by the awful experience, however, that Collins decided to lay off and went to Butte, where he dropped dead.
