he was permitted to view the promised land
In the great growth of the Lutheran church

Frank Zeigler, the boy sentenced by
Judge Adams to the reforir school at
Pontiac for larceny, caused Sheriff Gor
don a deal of trouble m conveying him
toward his destination and finally took
advantage of the sheriff's kindness and
confidence and escaped from him. Sheriff
Gordon, it will be remembered, started
Friday morning with Geo. Brooks, sen
tenced to three years ia Joliet peniten
tiary for forgery, and the boy.Ziigler, or
dered committed to the reform school.
Oa reaching O'.tawa the sheriff sent his
deputy, James Winans, on to Joliet with
Rogers, while he remained with the boy
who was to be taken to Pontiac. The
sheriff was very kind to the boy and the
depraved yourg villain showed evidence
of appreciation of the sheriff's disposition
toward him. Mr. Gordon therefore had
no anticipation of the boy abusing his
confidence when he stepped up to the
ticket office to purchase a ticket, and was
accordingly surprised on turning around
to nd his youthful prisoner missing. A
hurried search was at once made, the
authorities notified, but the boy had es
caped . The sheriff returned to Rock Isl
and Saturday night, and has since learned
that the boy reached here Saturday morn
ing and has since been in hiding in the
Kail read KarUet.
The express companies here have not
had the liveliest sort of business for sev
eral weeks, since the holiday rush, but
sow it is beginning to come again, and
tbev are feeling better over it.
