It is a record that is in the highest

frl-oiicrs In the Seott County Jh1I Make
There have been several attempts
made by the prisoners in the Seott
county tail of late to cseane. East
night at 11:30 Jailor Martens w as
awakened by a grating noise that he
had a big hunt in locating. He
looked the buildinir over from ton to
bottom. He at last located the sound
in a room in the third story. Mak
ing an examination of the floor he
found a hole about three inches long
and an inch wide had been duo-
through from l.elow. The cell under
neath was occunieil bv Allen and
Eastman, the Marengo burglars sent
there for safe keeping, and w ho had
just finished dieting on bread ami
water as a constitutional remedy for
being in the last jail delivery.
The police were notified and when
the cell was opened the fellows were
lotinii covered from head to toot with
plaster, w hile the lloor was littered
with bricks. Thev had stripped up
tlieir blankets aiif havino- tied their
mattress into a roll hail used it for a
stop ladder with which to reach the
ceiling. With some tool, probably
pieces of steel taken from tiie shanks
of their shoes, they had uariied a
hole through the archway largo
enough tor a man to crawl through.
An inch pine board was all that re
mained between them and the com
parative liberty of the top storv of
the building: from which t he y could
easily have reached the roof. Es
cape from t here would have been easy.
Are Hard On.'s.
The two fellows are about IS and
" years old. bright looking and
tough as they make 'em. Thev were
very anxious to have sonic new shirts
yesterday, probably with which to
celebrate -their expected freedom.
They were handcuffed together and
put into another cell, from which
everything hail been taken. As thev
have given more trouble than all the
other prisoners put together they
will probably lie fastened to balls anil

have been nine churches built, dedi

came into the district. The founda

been laid and the churches will be

$1,300 on missionary collections and
a corresponding advance on all other

Last evening at 0:30 the dark an

Kose Shoemaker. She was taken last
Wednesday to the hospital suffering
with typhoid fever. She was the
wife of Peter Shoemaker and resided
at 313. Fifth avenue. She was 25
years old and besides her bereaved
husband she leaves two children.
The remains were taken charge of by
Uundertaker Charles K. Wheelan,
from whose parlors the funeral will
occur at 8 a. m. on Thursday.
Opening of the Tout Inionv in the Will Con
The introduction of the testimony
in the Sinnet will case was com
menced in the circuit court yester
day afternoon. The first evidence
was that introduced by the defense in
the probate record of the count v
court, showing the admission to pro
bate of the contested will. The de
fense then rested for the present,
when the complainants began the sub
mission of testimony. . The gen
eral drift of the evidence so far ad
duced was to show that from the time

paralysis on Nov. 10. lHS.-, until his
death, Dec. 21. and including the
time the will was made Not 2." he
was of unsound mind. Numerous
witnesses were introduced to show
that during this interval he failed to
recognize his family and best friends
and was the most of the time in a
continual stupor. Chief of the wit

The Chicago Record t f today has
the following special from Atchison.
Kansas, w hich w ill be read w ith more
or less interest, locally speaking:
There is a east' pending in the dis
trict court of Atchison county enti
tled Laura Fulton against the city
of Atchison." an action for 5.o o
damages on account of personal inju
ry sustained by falling through a
sidewalk. The case has been contin
ued several times, ostensibly on the
ground of the absence of witnesses,
but in fact because City Attorney
Gilbcrt threatened to have Mrs. Ful
ton arrested for bigamy if she ap
peared for trial.
The bigamous charges against Mrs.
Fulton grew out of her hasty mar
riage to J. Smith of Bock Island. 111..
April 4. 1!2. in less than a week af
ter having been granted a divorce
from John B. Fulton. Under the
Kansas laws a divorce docs not be
come absolute for six months after
the decree has been entered. Mrs.
Fulton did not understand tl.e law
when she married Smith, but no ac
tion was ever taken against her.
Mrs. Fulton has since resided in
Bock Island with Smith, who is her
third husband. A new city attorney
has been elected and he has pretti
ed not to prosecute the woman and
she will appear for trial next week.
Cell Heir to fe.WOOO
Mrs. Fulton is the somewhat cele
brated Atchinson heiress to o5.ooo
in London. England, on condition
that she live in wedlock with an
honorable man for one year within
seven years of the death of he first,
husband's uncle, who made the will.
The uncle died in January. ls-!7.
The seven years will not have ex
pired for three months, but Mrs.
Fulton has complied with the
provisions of the will unless her
marriage with Smith shmld
be declared void. Mrs. Ful
ton w as formerly Miss Laura True of
Atchison. 'She married Horace H.
HalYenden of London, who died in a
little while, leaving his widow heir
ess to his uncle's estate. She mar-
ried Fulton, an Atchison railroad j
man. in ls;)o. but they only lived to-;
gether three months. Her next ven-j
ture was with Smith. B. P. Wago
