The Day 200 Miners Died 100 Years Ago


    "As a stone cast into a pool creates a convulsion where it strikes and is followed by ever-widening circles until the shores are reached, so has this awful catastrophe at Scofield sent out over Utah ever-widening waves of sorrow until the borders are reached and passed. Death's winding sheet seems to envelop Scofield this morning."
