Warden Dick Would Have the Walls
Topped With Charged Wire.
Oklahoma City, March 30. Escape
of two prisoners from the state pen
itentiary during a storm the other
night, ly scaling the prison walls,
demonstrates, according to Wardeii
R. V. Dick, who is here, the neces
sity of a fire addiUon to the enclos
ure. Before leaving the penitentiary
tho men cut off the lights, scaled the
wall and dropped themselves on tho
outside, a distance of twenty-five
feet. In a flash of lightning the es
capers were revealed to a guard,
who fired, without effect. One of the
men was hurt in dropping, lie crawl
ed to the penitentiary gate and asked
to be taken in, but tho other, a life
termer, kept going, and the warden's
last report was that dogs were on
The penitentiary management has
asked the legislature for an appropri
ation to top the wall with a wira
fence, about eight feet in height, the
upper edge of which would be bent
inward. This would give an obstruc
tion of about thirty feet in the air,
and, while prisoners might scale the
concrete work, they would be met by
the wire carrying a high electrical
voltage. It would be Impossible for
a human being to touch the wire
and get away with it. The moment
he came in contact with the elec
trical current ho would be hurled
from the parapet.
Efficacy of an electrically charged
fence was shown before the peniten
tiary building was erected. Then
convicts were housed in wooden
shacks on the penitentiary site, and
the Immediate prison grounds were
enclosed by a high wire fence, through
which was pouring electric current.
One prisoner in an effort to top the
enclosure was thrown forty feet to
the rear. lint one plan to thwart the
wire was ever discovered by tho
management, and had it been suc
cessful there might have bon a.
wholesale delivery of the prison pop
ulation. One or two of the more ob
streperous inmates schemed to fife
the wooden shacks, presuming that
rather than see them cremated the
guards would unlock the doors. The
general rush to the wire fence was
ro follow, and by use of boards tho
prisoners hoped to walk to freedom.
Discovery of the plan resulted In tho
leaders being extra watched, so the
test was never Imposed.
If Warden Dick's idea is met with
an appropriation, escape from the
prison by tho over-the-wall routs
would be next to impossible, for,
should the electric current bo turned
off, as was done the other night, no
man could start to get over the wire's
fangs, bending Inward, without detec
tion, if ho could get over at all.

DOCTORING OF DOLLY
By MAUDE J. PERKINS.
"I have almost danced the soles off
my slippers," said Dolly, looking down
at the bits of white satin glittering
with fragile Jeweled clasps.
"You don't seem to consider that
yod are wearing yourself out at the
same time. You can get other slip
pers, but it will be an entirely differ
ent matter to get health if you once
lose what you have."
"Don't preach, Phil! Forget for a
little while that you are a doctor. You
want me to keep what you call my
beauty simply because you like to
look at pretty faces."
The young surgeon smiled. "Put it
any way you like. I want you to be
well and strong."
"Why?" asked Dolly daringly. "It
seems to me it would bo to your ad
vantage to bave me ill for a long time.
Of course you know that I would bo
"I don't need patients. I have more
work now than I can do."
"Then I Buppose I am to under
stand, Phil," Dolly said coldly, "that
even if I am 111, you don't care for
my case. I'll try to remember and
warn mother not to call you."
"Why, Dolly, you know better than
"Is this your dance, Mr. Stafford?"
Dolly rose to meet tho tall young
man who had come up to them where
they sat in a little alcove screened
with palms and tropical things.
"See you at supper! Remember!"
Thil called as she glided away across
the smooth floor.
"Perhaps," she answered evasively
over the tall young man's shoulder.
Phil stood watching her until she
was lost 4n the maze of dancers.
Somebody slapped him on the back.
He turned to face Jim Cowan's laugh
ing eyes. Jim was one of the older
men of the crowd, a pleasure loving
bachelor whose millions had made
him the target for designing mothers
for many seasons.
"Don't singe your wings about that
bright particular candle any more,
my good looking moth," he drawled in
his indolent way, "for she is sched
uled to light up my gloomy establish
ment. Pretty, Isn't she?"
"All the girls look pretty tonight,"
answered Phil, feigning Ignorance.
"Just which one are you honoring by
"What a question! Dolly Carroll is
the most beautiful woman on the floor,
absolutely flawless like a perfect
"You are enthusiastic. Congratula
tions if they are in order," said Phil,
his hand extended cordially.
For all his assumed indifference,
Phil had been profoundly stirred.
Dolly Jim Cowan's wife! Alone, he
paced a deserted room, his cigaT held
idly in his fingers. He had so little
to offer her and she had bo much that
he had not dared ask her to go with
him out to that far country lying be
yond the commercialism of the mar
ket places where women exchanged
their hearts for gold. Love he had In
abundance and youth and strength,
but what were they, pitted against
millions of dollars?
"Dr. Brandon?" A servant in the
doorway spoke to him.
"Yes. What is it?"
"There has been an accident, sir.
They want you. Miss Carroll is hurt."
"Where is she?"
"In the ballroom, sir."
"Get my medicine bag in car 15429."
The women grouped about the limp
little figure in white drew back when
the young surgeon bent over and
picked Dolly up In his arms.
"Clear out one of the dresslng
100ms," he Eaid quietly to the agitated
hostess. "I want to examine here."
Dolly was only stunned and pres
ently opened her eyes very wide like
a child who wakes In a strange room.
"What's the matter? Oh, my shoul
"You'll be all right In a day or two."
Phil held a glass of water to her lips.
"The balcony gave way In the ball
room and one of the props fell, strik
ing your shoulder. No bones broken,
though. I've sent for your wraps to
take you home. You'll want Jim
Cowan, won't you?"
Phil's face was very white and set
Dolly looked at him curiously. "Why
In the world would I want Mr. Cowan
now?" she asked.
"If you are to marry him he has a
right to go with us."
"Marry him? Something must have
struck you the wrong way, too, Phil.
What do you mean by his right to go
"I understand that you are prom
ised to him."
Dolly made a wry face. "Take me
home, Phil. Mr. Cowan has been teas
ing me about you, too."
Once in the big limousine, Dolly
found It very comfortable to drop her
head on Phil's shoulder and to feel
his arm protectingly around her.
"You you just had to take care of
m tonight, didn't you, Phil?" she
questioned, woman like and woman
He was quiet for so long that she
ventured another question.
"What are you thinking about.
"I was Just thinking," he began,
turning his eyes resolutely from the
fair young face so near his own to
look out at the snow falling eoftly
through the night. "I was Just think
ing," he repeated, "how wonderful it
would be to have the right to take
care of you always, Dolly."
A little hand slipped out of the vel
vet and laces and touching his face
lightly turned it back to her own
"Do you love me?"
Colorado Springs, March 31. A
highway that will connect Pike's Peak
with the fertile fields of Oklahoma
is the ambitious project that has been
launched by Oklahoma and Colorado
good roads enthusiasts.
Oklahoma with its aroused Interest
In good roads, and Colorado, with its
convict labor system, have been much
in evidence in t lie good roads move
ment and development of the last few
years, and the proposal to Joiti togeth
er these two commonwealths with a
substantial highway is logical and
its inception has been simultaneous
in the two state, nnd tho plan is
taking definite form. Already con
sidpra&le correspondence has passed
between various commercial organi
zations in Oklahoma and the Colorado
Springs Chamber of Commerce, which
has taken the Initiative insofar r.s
Colorado is concerned.
Plans are now being considered for
an automobile trip from Colorado
Springs to Oklahoma probably In May
of this year. This has not been def
initely decided but tho Colorado
Springs Chamber of Commerce is
collecting rt.ad dita to enable it to
get a clear idea of the most feasible
roads and to decide whether such a
tour is feasible. The rotile will nut
be determined upon until road data
has been received from various com
munities in Oklahoma. .
Kvcry summer many Oklahomans
visit the Pikes Peak Region making
tho trip by attto. It is tho plan of
the Colorado Springs people not only
to return the visit, but to demon
strate to Colorado the won
derful opportunities Oklahoma has t.3
In connection with tho proposed
tour, if carried out, it is probable
that a meeting or meetings will !?
