in money and some. $190 in deposit
slips from Bob Amon, a 8yrian, who

There are four cells in the .third
story of the jail where the men were
confined, opening into a passage-way
where the stove was located. Dur
ing the cold nights Sheriff Buford
had been permitting the three white
prisoners to occupy the passage-way
in order to keep wan. One of the
four cells was .used as a plunder and
toilet room. This was looked so that
the prisoners tould not gain access
to it. The men on Thursday night
prized a- steel bar from the toilet
and opened the loeked .door, gaining
access into this room, 'through the
rear 'wall of which they managedI to
gain access to a rear passage,- and
they then made their- escape from a
second-%tory wiindow in the rear of
the jail by tying their blankets to
gether and in this way letting them
selves down to the- ground.
Sheriff Buford says that under for
mer sheriffs escapes have been made
through the rear walls of all the four
white cells which opened into -the
passage-waj he had allowed the
prisoners to occupy, and that the
ells -are very insecure. He says that
he hfs repeatedly tried to have'"the

Sheriff Buford is making strenuous
