tion of seeing u dark man pass out
of the front door. The man wnlkcd
with Ills head bent, and, although
Miss Ilcrtolmann thought nothing of
tho Incident nt tho time, sho Is now
sure that It must have been Harris
who passed her.
Sheriff Jarrett, wlio Is confined to
his room with tho grip, did not hear
of the cscapo till nfter 8 o'clock nt
night. Deputy Sheriff Hoso nlso was
not informed of tho affair till 8
o'clock. Ho at onco drove up to tho

that ho was seen In tho Winston
block last night. Tho wholo avail
able police forco Is out on his trail,
and It Is confidently expected that
ho will bo under lock nnd key onco

Harris has an unsavory reputnllon
nnd hns on two occasions, It Is
charged by tho police, csenped from
tho lock-up. Ho climbed tho rear
wall on his two previous attempts to
obtain llhorty, but was quickly ro
cupturcd. II has bcon wcnrlng n
bandngo over his forehead slnco tho

Miss Ilcrtolmann the man sho saw
had nn cloth around his head. The
scars on his forehead and noso aro
still plainly visible. It is thought
that ho wljl Inso tho uso of one cyo
