Allen Emerson Surrenders
Allen Emerson, who was sen
tenced to serve a life sentence in
the bpiiiteritiary'; for killing
Thomas F. Drake on August 11,
1906, and who escaped from the
Anderson county jail at an early
hour on the morning of August
1, e1't, rtiiiied' to Anderson
Sundy, just five months after
his escape, surrendered to the
sheil'ff, afili is idv 1h~t.9 4pen i
tentiary at Columbia..
In the account he gave ot his
escape from jail, he completely
exoppates Sheriff Green or
Jdaor Cochran of anyconniv
antee or assistanice"
In' his story he said:
-iTt 'was an-ehsy matter for
me to unlock that door with this
key which I made. The plumb
ers were 'heie Workihg on the
sewerage system and when one
of thelm put 'down a )1ece of sol
der and turned his back, I
grabber.d it. .tas. out of that
piece of solder that I carVed this
key. .'It took Me about fopr aid
a half hours.. to eut..it'oit with
my.yodkewt ktfv:..Jo not know
.whether this key will 6pen this
door now or not.' It opened it
the- night; I.:t away. I have
been carrying it arIound in m y
pocket evei since arnd 'it may be
twisted or a'little 'crooked'now.''
While he "was saying 'this he
was fitting the itation' key in
the big lock - and wvith a twist
of the wrist the bolt of the lock
flew back and the door swung
Emerson . gave as his reasons
for returning as follows:
"I read In -the papers several
stories about my delivery. I
sa'w Sheriff Green and Jailer.
Cochran were somewhat ceni
sured and the.,.people, seemed
to blame -them for my escape.
I want to say right now that in
my- opinion a million dollars
would not move either. Mr.
Cochran or Sheriff Green. Both
of them are honest men and It
never entered my head that a
bribe would secure my escape.
Those gentlemen should not be
blamed for my escape for they
wvere not responsible. As soon
as I road in the papers that the
people blamed them I made up
my mind to return and to suir
render and then tell how I did
Ldid noi want innocent mor
to sifter for what.

Horses in Burning Stables.
El. JOURNAL: I have noticed
repeated alecotmits -if -horses -and
mules.heing btirral to death on
account of the owneris not being
able to lead them out of a burn
ing stable, arid have found ouA,
by asking, that very few people
know that if they will blindfold
the horse it wvill come out with
out the least trouble, Wrap
something around its head and
eyes so it cannot see the light
and it wvill walk right out.
You would be surprised, -if
you -vere to ask, to find how
few people know this valuable
fact. L. KATE CARPENTER.
