from tho Polk country Jull. They
were detained In tho county jail to
await tho action of tho grand jury for

peared. Their description is as follews:
Henry Simmons, aged GO years,
whl to hair, bluo eyes, light complex

about 180 pounds; Bert Simmons,
aged 30 years, six feet tall, light hair,
bluo oyes, light complexion, weight

Sheriff Plummor offers WO reward
for their capture. Tho manner of
their escape Is partly revealed and
partly conjectured. A very thin steel
saw was found and appearances left
no doubt that with this they had
sawed oil one of the bars of the steel
cage surrounding the corridor. (They
were not locked In tho steel cell.)
Through tho obenlug thus made, tho
young man crawled und found a mon
key wrench In the outer part of the
building, with which the nuts were
taken off tho bars which secure the
outside windows. Passing out, the
young man procured a fence rail, with
which ho returned and pried the bars
of the cage open sulllccut to let the
old man out.
An old man named Green, who Is
in jail for stabbing a man named
Sheldon, refused to go out with them
and says they escaped between 3 ond 4
o'clock in the morning.
It Is thought the saw was passed In
to the prisoners in some clothing by
friends on the outside.
