HARRY K THAW ESCAPES
rFrom Matteawan Insane Asylum
?A Brilliant Coup.
Matteawan, N Y, August 17:?
Harry K Thaw, the slayer of Stanford
White, escaped from the hospital
for the criminal insane here at
,. 7:45 o'clock this morning. A dart
-v* for liberty through an open gate, a
loan intn the door of a Dowerful au
tomobile that stood quivering outside
and a flight like a rocket for the Connecticut
State line thirty miles away,
accomplished his escape.
To-night he was still at large and
the hospital authorities felt certain
^ he was outside the State. Once beB
yond its boundaries Thaw is free.
Only months, perhaps years,of litigation
can bring him back to Matteawan
and then only in one event that
he be adjudged insane in the
? ? /i l
State, to which he nas nea.
. Five confederates manned the car
in which Thaw escaped and a big
black limousine, which trailed it past
^ the asylum gate. The police have
v?4he descriptions of Thaw's confederates
and the names under which they
registered at a local hotel Friday
night and are seeking them.
The hospital authorities believed
fl^k^Jthat Thaw had fled to the shore of
Long Island Sound and boarded a
yacht waiting with steam up to rush
H to Europe.
m Harry K Thaw, whose sensational
f escape from Matteawan asylum Sunday
morning startled the country,
was captured Tuesday at a small village
just over the Canadian line from
New Hampshire. He will fight extradition.
It is thought that Thaw
will be deported fromCanadaand sent
back to New Hampshire on the
Hr ground of his being a "prohibited
person" under the Canadian immi

A STAR OF FIRST MAGNITUDE**
Is Ktngstree As a Tobacco Market
In the Opinion of a Neighbor.
lr: A * "? ??mo frnm on nW- I

scure and hardly counted tobacco
market to be a star of the first magnitude
in the tobacco world. Kingstree
did it through the co-operation
of her business men and a wise system
of advertising. The receipts
there this season have been nearly
two million pounds. Thaty means
some money to the channels of trade
in Kingstree. Kingstree does not
need that money any worse than
Florence, but Kingstree got it, and
if we want the money or the business
we must get in the fight. We need
a good lick to knock us out of our
rut; we are getting too careless entirely,
and we do not want to stay in
this condition until we see things
slipping away from us. We are too
cock-sure that Florence is going to
grow and property is going to increase
in value, but if you owe any
money on your property or in your
business you had better be waking
up and trying to see that Florence
does not fall behind and the bottom
drop out of things and you lose what
you have. Maybe you deserve to
lose it, but you do not want to, nor
do we want to see you lose it, but it
would wake you up.?Florence Timex.
