under.Indictment for assaulting two little
girls at Searsboro last winter , made a bold
attempt to escape last night , but was stopped
by the heroic work of Mrs. Blnegar , wife
of the sheriff of Powcshlck county. With a
largo stove poker , which he secured In some
mysterious manner , ho succeeded In making
n hole through the wall of his cell. Sheriff
Blnegar was away from the house during
the evening and his wife , hearing a otrango
noise , went to Investigate. As she opened
the door leading to the cells , Desmond
Jumped at the open door. Mrs. Blnegar wan
too quick for him and slammed the door
shut and locked It on the outside. She then
secured n largo club and ran around the
building to glvo the alarm. Noticing the
strange hole she stopped. Just then Des
mond's head appeared through the hole and
he would have made good his escape , but ,
she called to htm to halt. She told htm
she would kill htm If ho did not go back ,
and raised the club to put her threat Into
execution. Desmond weakened and drew
himself back into his cell. Mrs. Blnegar
saw two men In a buggy nearby , who dis
appeared when she gave the alarm. The
dirt had been dug away and part of the
hole In the wall made from the outside ,
which leads to the conclusion that the men
were assisting Desmond to escape. A clew
has been found to the strangers and the
sheriff and posse are now after them.
