NO FOOD FOR SEVEN DAYS


THE HORRIBLE SUFFERINGS OF A LEBANON COUNTY MAN.


While Hunting on the Mountain He Falls Into a Deserted Mine 130 Feet Deep, and Lays There Seven Days Before Being Rescued—Still Alive but Life Despaired of.

READING, Sept. 8.—While Clayton Klink, aged 19, a resident of Lebanon County, was hunting on the mountains one week ago he fell into a deserted mine 130 feet deep, terribly crushing both feet and sustaining other serious injuries. His friends scoured the mountain, but failed to find him until last night, when he was hoisted to the surface. He was still alive, but was unconscious and almost dead, having lain in torture at the bottom of the cold, damp mine with nothing to eat for seven days. If his life can be saved it is probable that both legs will have to be amputated.
