ceny has just ended , broke jail early last evening and shook the dust
of Yalentine from his feet , The jury brought in a verdict of guilty
and just before supper the judge had given him a five year sentence.

of a water tank and the punishment for grand larceny is imprison

year and the severity of liU punishment was due to the fact that he

once before for stealing.
The escape was made by breaking a lock on a window in the jail
and sawing two of he bars through. It is evident that the bnwing
