Found this old newspaper clipping that fell out of a family letter from the 30's (I think). I don't want to keep it, but feel that someone might be interested in it. Pasted below, don't know what paper it is from, but probably one from Lewiston-Clarkston area:

"DEARY MAN BURIED UNDER HAYSTACK

John Adcox Threatened With Being Smothered When Stack Topples on Him Feeding Cattle.

Deary, Nov. 29. -- John Adcox was buried alive in a haystack Friday evening. About 6:30 he had gone with a lantern to the barn to feed his stock. While digging out hay from the stack he was suddenly buried as it toppled over. Noting his long absence from the house, Mrs. Adcox started to the barn carrying a gasoline lamp, but fell and broke the lamp. She hurried into the house and telephoned for help.
Leo Beyer and Albert Pierce were the first to arrive, but without forks they were almost helpless. Others arrived and, after digging down with their hands, they finally released the buried man, who was not seriously injured. "
