Killed while Blasting.
West Union Argo:—Through County Attorney Hancock we learn that Joseph Hamilton, while blasting “hardheads” on the farm of a Mr. Wittenburg, in Banks township. Saturday, was killed by a piece of flying rock. When found he was lying near the last boulder he had exploded, stone dead. The cause of his death was so apparent that it was not deemed necessary to notify the coroner.
