Attempted Jailbreak

Beach — While attempting to mine coal from an old well on section 4-12-60, southwest of Beach, Albert Popil lost his life, being overcome with gas. The well was about fifty feet deep and as soon as he went down he was overcome.

He cried for help, but was not able to assist himself enough to be drawn out by his hired man, who was at the top of the well. It was about two hours before he could be taken out, and with much difficulty.
