Sc by dis-'acung the attention of •be one attendant who was always with me I managed to slip through the shrubbery by the side of the sani tarium I reached the high fence whirr surrounded the grounds with out being observed A moment later I was on the outside of the fence, a free man A free man yes. But with only five -enu in my pocket. I knew that any attempt to obtain more then would re sult in my capture and return, so I made up my mind to seek no help, but to trust u> my own resources. I waited to Spuyten Duyvil and mere '-■oh a car for New York. My five cents got me as far as Fourteenth street. I was now in the heart of New York without a cent and without the power of appealing to any of my friends for aid Fortunately I had a gold watch for which I had paid $200 the year be fore. It never occurred to me thcrt I might pawn it until I saw the three bails on a pawnshop at Third avenue and Fourteenth street. I entered the shop and "hocked” my watch for 513 With this money in my possession I regained confidence. I had always been able to make my own way in the a?t In fact. I had always been a money-maker Why not again? So I determined to start anew in life I would forget that I had ever been Ralph A Clarke. In the future I would be B. R. Benton. The name came to me like an inspiration. I read of my escape from The Knolls, and I even dropped into a po ’ e station to see if a general alarm bad been sec*- out for me. Finding out there was a general alarm for me ' r d chat I might be arrested at any ir treat and returned to the sanitar :m. 1 decided I had better leave New York. Practically all of the 51" I had ob tained for my watch had V -n spent or food and shelter during (hose ‘hree days. In fact I had less than TO en;.- wren I cros-ed over to Jersey on the fc-rr> and took the trolley to Trenton. At Trenton I managed ic ue: a fre er:- rraiti, which landed me at Perryvili-e. Md. There a contractor was tearing :o-ve an old railroad bridge, and I ap , iied for work as a laborer. The boss scanned me for a moment He told me frankly that he didn't think I'd do. but that, as he needed men. he'l give mo a job. So I started to work at once for S2.1jo a day. I found a cheap boarding house across the r:\cr and began my career as R. R. Senior. For four weeks I worked at this job and saved enough money to buy a ticket for R:rfcmond. Va.. where I expected to get a position at the American Loco motive Works. Succeeded in Susir.es;. I was successful in getting employ men' at tee locomotive works in Richmond, and 1 remained there until April, 19 ". By that time I had ac cumulated a nest egg from my sav ings. and I began to look around for some better way of making money. I answered an 'ad." and got a posi tion as a salesman with the Columbia Shoe company, but left its employ for a better position as a traveling sales man for Smith & Hcmenway of Ner. York. I sold safety razors for this concern a!! over the middle west and south. I gave my name as B. R. Ben ton and my heme as Richmond. While working for this concern I met a man who was traveling for the Parker Chemical company of Chicago, and through him I got a job as sales man for that concern. My headquar ters were located at Richmond, and my business brought me into contact with prominent and influential per sons there I made good commissions as a salesman and constantly added to my savings. Two years ago I deter mmec to emc-ara in business lor my self. With Dr. W. H. Parker, one of the leading physicians of Richmond: Dr. Ferguson of the state board of health, and two others I organized the Chemical Supply Company. I became its secretary and general manager, and later, upon the withdrawal of Dr. Parker, its president. As B. R. Benton I became acquaint ed with Miss Nannie Proffitt of No. 314 East Cary street. Richmond two years ago. and on March 30 of this year we were married in Washington by the Rev. E H. Swen of the Second Baptist church. So determined was I to forget that I had ever been Ralph A Clarke of Brooklyn that I did not even reveal my identity to my bride until after we were married. Then when I was induced to come to New Vork and reveal my identity it was no longer possible to keep my bride in ignorance. During the five years I lived in Richmond I saw many of my old friends, and one of them. Will Ketch am of Brooklyn, stopped me and ask ed if 1 was not Ralph Clarke. I met his eyes calmly and told him he was mistaken. Rowland J. Simes. another oid friend, was not so easily deceived. He saw me in the grill room of Strumpfs Hotel in Richmond on the 7th of last January and immediately hailed me as Clarke. I tried to throw him off. even insisting that I had nev er heard the name Clarke before, but he knew me too well and I was forced to admit my identity. We had dinner together and spent an evening talking over old times. Before he left me he was pledged to keep my secret on con dition that 1 meet him in Washington on Jan. 30. Returns to His Aged Mother. When I met him at the Raleigh ho tel on that date he pleaded with me to release him from his pledge or se crecy. He argued that it was unfair to keep my family, especially my aged mother, in ignorance of my fate. So, principally for the sake of my mother, I agreed to let it be known that Ralph A. Clarke was still alive. Simes in terested Bernard J. York, a New York lawyer, in my case He had known me in the old days in Brooklyn, and when the necessary affidavits that I was alive and sane had been prepared he had no difficulty in having the courts set aside the commitment and return the $27,737 in cash which the Hamilton Trust company was holding in trust for me. Justice Blackmar in the Supreme court. Brooklyn, signed the necessary papers on April 14. What next? I dont know. I am too well known In Richmond as B. R. Ben ton to discard that name, but of course Ralph A. Clarke is my rightful name.

Hitherto the Nationalists have con sented to accept whatever England granted as a step toward final separa tion. but the Irish leader, in indorsing the prime minister's statement of the measure of home rule to be granted, astonished his hearers by applauding the autonomy granted to South Africa by King Edward and expressing the nope mat King oeorge wouid open tee irisn par*lament ana so nasten tne day when Ireland, reconciled, would become a loyal unit of the British empire.
