Mr. N. M. Puaoy wns choaon chnir-

The Prisoners Break th <
'Boose and Escape.
A Crook \Vuntod Badly Gains HI
Oftlcor Uarhyto on opening th
dpor of the calabooso Tuesday night
to put in a vagrant lodger , was sur
prised to lind that the birds suppose
to bo there caged had flown. An ox
animation showed that the exit 1m
( boon made through the rear dooi
which opens upon a yard enclosed b
u board fence surmounted by barbe
wire. Some outsider had risked tea :
ing his clothes by climbing over th
fence , and with u monkey wrench hu
taken off the nut of tlio bolt whic
holds the bar fastening the door , This
bolt boitu taken off , all the prisoners
hnd to do was to pull the bolt out ,
loosen the bar and swing open the
door leading to Iho outside world ,
The monkey wrench was found in the
yard , the unknown liberator having
loft it thuio after it hnd nerved his
his purpose. There was also loft a
torn coat , which wan recognized as belonging -
longing to a barber who has been
lately locked up there for drunken
ness.Tho barber and his torn coat were
sout out of jail the dny before , and
the coat having thus mysteriously re
appeared led the ofllcors to suspect
that the barber was the outside friend
who thus released the prisoners.
It further appeared that the coat
and hat of ono fellow , who was lying
drunk in the cnlibooso , had boon
stolen , loading to the conclusion that
the barber wli-j hnd before insisted on
Iho oflicera giving him a now coat to
replace the ono torn by thorn in ar
resting him , hnd como back determin
ed to got a bolter coat , oven if hu had
to break into jail nnd steal ono.
There was only ono important pris
oner who thus olfected nn escape , and
he is supposed to bu along-sought nnd
much wanted one. Ho was arrested
hero three or four days ago on a de
scription and photograph , baing want
ed in Huv > . < r. l places for crookuuwork ,
and suppimud to belong to a gang of
thieves. IIo was noticed in this city ,
acted suspiciously , found to answer the
description , wan arrested , and gave so
very unsatisfuotuiy accounts of him
self that it was determined to hold
him hero nnd investigate further.
Ho hud several aliases , ono being Al
Morris , another Kennedy , and the
names of Frank Wood , Fltckhouso
nnd Taylor wuro also used by him on
different occasions. IIo was wanted
tit Clinton for malicious mischief , at
Dos Moines for larceny , and at Onulia
for breaking into freight cars. The
chief of police has telegraphed to these
places , and holding the bin ! in the
meantime. Omaha promised to
send over for the young man , but do-
laycd doing so , and word camu from
the other places to hold the man and
they would aeo to him. If any of
thorn had como promptly , they would
hnvo had the man , but delays are
dangerous , and this ono gave him time
to perfect an escape. The ofllcors will
now have the delightful task of catch
ing him again , which will bo no easy
t.ialc , as the follow has doubtless put a
goodly distarico between himself and
the places that once know him. It is
thought that the barber who so kindly
helped him to his freedom belonged
to the same gang , nnd has gone with
him. Ono of the prisoners , who also
escaped , was in for being drunk , but
ho returned this morning , paid his
fine , gathered up what effects had
boon taken from his packets when ar
rested , and went forth square with
justice. IIo was a resident of the
city , nnd had no object in skipping
earo to bo relieved from further con
finement until morning.

So heron have an Iowa village an

the prosperous burgers on the utix
line , The large amount of froig
handled to and from this station BI
now buildings erected this season ai
to , bo built this spring and sumin
tell , in nn uncertain niiy , that the
town is rapidly growing. A now
brick union school building , coating
80,000 or $8,000 , is ntarly ready for
occupation , nnd in a ciodit to the pen-
plo nml nn honor to Iho school board
as well nn tlio school system of the

built a large building in which to
store the farm implements they offer
for sale. Thty are practical farmers ,
and propose to keep the best of o full
line of such articles , including the
improved grass seeds , probably the
largest stook of farm muchincry in
this section , and also maintain a
branch oflico at Northboro , Among
the novelties they have inttoducod , is
Iho Cnsady riding plow , which they
have kept in "closo confinement"
since its arrival , hoping to got up
a trial plowing match , and
a wager of n new lint that it will not
require ICSH draft than n walking
plow , for the boys need ono or two
now lints. Wo notice nlso a now
building for John Julford's now store ,
and some now firms taking a trial of

So far this vilbgo has worshipped in
