TO GET OUT
Prisoners Attempt to Break Wood
An attempt to break out of the
Wood county jail was spoiled by tho
observing eye of a woman.
A Bowling Green lady accompan
ied by her husband wore passing tho
Jail when the lady observed some
thing in a window of tho jail which
did not look right and calling hor
husband's attention they watched
long enough to distinguish a man at
tho window in tho act of sawing.
An alarm was given and Deputy
Sheriff Shoecraft carefully entered
tho jail and caught the man engaged
In the act of sawing a heavy bar.
The man flulckly entered his coll,
but left behind him several saws and
an iron bar as evidence of the work
he was doing.
An inventory disclosed eight hack
saws, two saws made from case
knives, a bar of iron 2 feet long
and a quarter inch thick, also enough
rope to have let tho men down to tho
How these articles were obtained
by the prisoners is unknown, unless,
as the Sheriff supposes, they were
thrown through the window grating
into the outer corridor and pulled
into the inner corridor by the aid
of a broom.

Unsolicited by himself Frank has
several times been honored by tho
people of tho village by election to

Ho is a membor of tho Masonic

Now Mexico is of more than ordi
nary interest to tho tourist who will
allow himself tlmo to study present
conditions and future poFslbllitles,
and' at the city of Albuquerque there
la much to indicate that this section
of country is rich in historical and
agricultural Interest, and I hope to
bo pardoned for using a few facts I
gleaned from records of the city. Al
buquergue, New Mexico, is tho chief
city of the now state, and Is also the
largest and most modern city In tho
southwest and one of the oldest in
tho United States. ttB beginning is
shrouded in prehistoric times and
where tho city now stands was oaco
the center of tho most populous
Pueblo Indian district in New Mex
ico and it is estimated there were"
many thousand Pueblos living In this
district. Albuquerque disputes with
Tuseon and Santa Fe, Arizona, and
St. Augustine, Florida, the title of
being the oldest city In the United
. The city received Its christening
when It was named after Don Fran
cisco Fernandez de la Cueva Enri
qucz, Duke of Albuquerque, appoint
ed thirty-fourth viceroy of New
Spain by King Felipe V of Spain. He
took charge at Vera Cruz In 1702.
Don Francisco Cuero y Valdez, ap
pointed Governor of New Mexico by
tho Duke of Albuquerque, founded
the "villa" of Albuquerque in 170G,
calling it San Francisco de Albuquer
que in honor of tho viceroy, and the
latter ordered the name changed to
San Felipe de Albuquerque in honor
of the King of Spain. Just exactly
why the viceroy ordered this change
in name the history does not state,
but ho probably desired to touch the
King for an extra amount of sup
plies or soldiers, or had, perhaps, al
ready knocked down a few thousand
on expenso account a"nd wanted to
give his highness a little "Bull Moose
con." to smooth 4t over. Howover,
that's the way Albuquerque was
named at a time when her popula
tion consisted of thirty families.
During the past ten years thl&
beautiful city has had a rapid
growth its assessed valuation in
mi being ?3,S00,000 as against
31,900,000 ten years previous. It is
tho distributing 'center for the rich
San Pedro, Golden, Cerrlllos, Bland,
Hell Canyon and Coyote Canyon min
ing districts, and Is the central mill
ing and shipping point for immense
forests of pine, spruce and fir, the
great areas of stauding timber in the
aggregate being larger than some of
the eastern states. Tne location of
this city, at an altitude of approxi
mately 5,000 feet, with three hun
dred days of sunshine a year, with a
rarefied, absolutely pure air, makes
It an Ideal health resort and is death
to tuberculosis germs.
The Rio Grande, "Great River,'
often called the "Nile of America,"
flows through the entire length from
north to Fouth of the state of New
Mexico; over 300 miles, and la a
broad, 'shallow stream and Its waters
are said to be richer In fertilizing
silt than any other stream in Amer
ica. Its valley is from two to a doz
en miles in width and its basin in
New Mexico embraces some of the
most productive land in the world.
Tho waters of tho Rio Grande have
been used since prehistoric, Aitec
times -for the watering of the soil
and thoro is no doubt thnt In this
