BROKE JAIL SECONDTIME
Cont inui'd from page one
feet, made out of a piece of bed clo
thing tied together. As the jail room
of the building is on the ground floor
the deputy was unable to figure eti.t
whai such a rope could be used feir
unless the prisoner hud been plui ning
on a solitaire neck-tic party. He was
relieved of the articles which were an
nexed to the junk pile.
Morris sweet hours of freedom
were decidedly limited as it wus not
twenty-four hours until he was again
captured ami landed in jail. After
breaking out about nine o'clock Thurs
day night he started on foot in the
direction of Union. Beaching the
Goos farm a short distance south of
this city, he crawled into a hay mow
and slept unMl day break, when he
again set forth on his jaunt. Shortly
after the noon hour he stopped at the
Claud Everett place a mile or two
northeast of Union and asked for a
drink. He was at once recognized by
Everett who talked to him and assail
ed him with several questions as to
what he was doing in that Vicinity.
Morris replied that he had been set
fre'C and that he was "hoofing" it back
home; however, his actions were a
little peculiar and to get the straight
of t ings, Everett entered the house
to phone the Union a ithorilies. While
he was talking the boy started to
leave the place nnel when Everettc
finished unel ste pe'd out on the porch,
he was nearly beyond hailing dis
tance. Paying no attention to E ver-
ett's calls, the lad went on out of
sight. A short while later, Constable
Barton and a party arrived on the
scene. They soon located their man
on the banks of the river but before
they could reach him he hael disappear
ed. Following him along the bank
a few minute's later they again sighted
him ami cornered him in a narrow
place bet we'd! a deep elruw and the
river. He was piled into the constable
rig anil the party heailed feir this city
tei once meire lodge the youthful jail
breaker in the confines of the beautiful
ami Hiibntantuil structure.
H'e wonder who's breaking out now.
In the meantime, the sheriff had
bee n summoned ami he was on his way
to Union when he met the Union
parties and rctruncd withs them.
At the jail the boy was locked up
in the county cage, the only place in
t1 e building which can be even hinted
as being secure, where the thermome
ter registers 9S most of the time and
where it is just about as light during
the night as it is during the elay.
He was taken to Kearney Monday
and plari'd' in thei reform school.
The- authorities consider it a pe
culiar thing that the boy would re
turn after each jail break to his old
stumping ground, where was known
by every one und his identity wus sure
to leak out. What skill the boy held
in jail-breaking he lacked in eluding
the office'is. Jail breaking iitthis
locality is not a punishable offense
but the boy's double dash for liberty
will not add any feathers to his bed
at the reform school. As the jail
keeper saiel: "Morris battereel up
ihcjail worse than any other prisoner
hail ever done." He was onto his
job when it came to gaining freedom
but he met his Waterloo when he tried
to retain it. .
As the old saying reaels, 'Tis an
ill . wind that blows no one geioel".
The escape of the lad the scconeel tim
may jar a little dust from the thought
garrets ofthc commissioners ami make
them realize the condition of the dis
reputable old shack. It is getting to
be an outrage on the county citizens,
who know that all the burglars, crooks
etc., in their locality arc being ullowenl
to run at large, for placing a prisoner
in the Cass county jail is like putting
a fly in a chicken coop; it holds them
as long as they are content with the
cooking, but when they decide to
leave, they have no more trouble in
getting on their way than an
aristocrat does in cranking his machine.
From the information gleaned by the
News-Hearald from many prominent
citizens of the locality, it is found thut
practically every one is in favor of a
new building. If the, gooel people eif
the county want a new jail, why can't
they have one'? The continued com
motion that is being stirred up here
by the freepie'tit deliveries and attempt
ed jail bkreas, is giving the state the
impression that Cass county full
of eh'sperate one who arc taking the
law 'in their own hands and gaining
their fre-edeiin whenever they care to.
Does the county deserve to hold such
n reputation? Has the body, whiclij
holds such matte rs in hand, been in
noculated with the sleeping sickness
germ to such an extent that its mem
bers are going to slumber through a
time when their action on the matter
is needed to such an extent? They
are supposed to have the interests
of the people of the countv at heart.
They do not have to be told tho sen

TWO BOYS HERE ON
LONG RIVER TRIP
Paddling In Canoe From Source
Of River to Their Home
at Kansas City.
Two nut brown youths paddled down
the current of tho Missouri Monday
piorning in a light canoe, presenting,
by their sun tanned complexions anel
their skillful handling of their little
craft, the appearance of a pair of red
skins, such as plied the waters of tho
sri'aiu two score years ago. When
opposite Plattsmouth, they tied up
their boat and came into the city to
take in the sights before resuming
The young men were Will Guinotto
and Eel ward Curtiss, two Kansas
City boys, who are exceptionally
strong in the wnter speirls, beoing mem
bers of the Kansas City Yacht club
and Puddle and Camp club. As their '
actiems showed, they had won several
honorcs for skillful canoe work. Sev
eral months ago the boys hit on tho
novel idea'of taking a long trip in their
favorite craft and accordingly they
made preparations for their outing.
Sipping ' their. canoe, a frail looking
oat measuring 17 feet in length and
52 inches in width, with a small tent
aid about 100 pounds of bag-ge,
to Great Falls, Mont., ihr boys rro-'
ceex'cd to the point by rail. This place
is some fifty mi'cs from the headwuter
of the Misouri. They launched the
boat on the long journey the second
of May and every day since then they
have been paeldlingdown stream at tho
rate of about seventy-five miles a
At Arrow Rapiels, the boys had"
their most interesting experience with
ti e canoe. At that place the river
t Millies heavily over treacherous rap
ids, but these the boys shot without
a single mishap and without shipping
more than a few hat fulls of water.
They have not met with a single ac
cident on their trip, although it. has
not all been a continual round of pleas
ure and clear sailing. They remained
in Omnha over Sunday, pitching their,
tent under the approach of, the Douglas
street bridge. They broke camp and
Monday morning, arriving here at
ten twenty, making a remarkably
quick trip as the winds and, bends
of the river measure many miles be
tween here ami the metropolis. After
eating dinner in the city, the pair
set out again, anxious to make their
destination before the Fourth of July.
In all, their boat has covered about
2,000 miles since ii touched water
on May 2.
