three o'clock, it is supposed, the attendant
was under the necessity of leaving the

might again endeavor to escape, he locked
the door; on his return a few minutes
later, he was horritied at finding that the
inmate had escaped through an open win

teen feet to the crouiid. Search was in

found until daylight, when he was dis
