Ananias Phillips, a late resident of Ozark township, was blasting in his well and in the afternoon about four o'clock he went down into the well to examine a fuse which had failed to ignite. The damps being in the well, he died immediately and was not drawn out until the next morning although all the asistance necessary was immediately summoned to the spot.
