A terrible accident occurred to Warren Wright while digging a well at
James Hickman's house, on Wease Ridge Saturday evening. A blast had
been put in the well and Mr. Wright was lighting the fuse. It became
lit before he noticed it and he was warned to run, but the warning came
too late. He was struck in the head and face with stones, and his
jaw bone was broken. Dr. Dye dressed the wound, and he is getting
along as well as could be expected. Mr. Hickman was also badly hurt
by a rock striking him in the head.
