Zink was arrested at Fourteenth and St.
Louis avenue. Thursday evening, about 4
o'clock. He is a coal wagon driver and
his zeal to heto an unfortunate driver to
extricate a wagon, which bad become stalled
at that pont, wan the cause of his arrest.
According to the police report, he was
too otllcious about a matter in which ho
was not concerned, and persisted in giving
orders and making himself generally ob
noxious. In Fpite of the fact that Patrol
man Harry V. Wilson warned him several
times to go along and mind his own busi
ness. An argument resulted betwsen the police
man and Zink. and the result was that the
officer hustled Zink over to a patrol bot

good joke on the officer, and, wishing to
poice more fun at the guardian of tho peace,
spat on the sidewalk, at the same time ex
claiming: "There; place that charge agaln.it

SHERIFF PREVENTED ESCAPE.
Discovered Two Prisoners Making
Saws in Maccn Jail.
Macon, Mo, March 6. If Sheriff Gllstrap
had not stepped Into the City Jail when he
did last night the chances are two desperate
prisoners would not have shown up for
breakfast to-daj. One of them is a man
under sentence of death.
Gllstrap found the man on the floor mak
ing saws of a case knife a-nd an old bar
low. J. M. Robertson, the man to b exe
cuted, was holding the case knife on the
cell floor, while Tom Waller, alias "Slcr
tj"." was holding the sharp edge of the bar
low against the other knife and pounding It
with a poker.
They had about completed the work of
making two verj- good saws of the kntver.
Ine prisoners refused to surrender them,
and they were taken by force. Their pur
pose was to saw- oft two bars on the door
hinges, and their tools were adequate to
do the work if they had been afforded the
