TWO MURDERERS AMONGTHEM.
Well Planned, Well Executed Scheme
Blood Hounds Following Tracks
Made By Them.
Yorkville, S. C (Special). There
was'a wholesale delivery of prisonersat
the county jail Sunday morning about 3
o'clock. Among the prisoners that es
caped are M. B. Beese and Dave F.
Luckie, convicted of the murder of
Chas. F. Williams, of Tunnel Hill,
Ga., and sentenced to the penitentiary
for life, but waiting.the result of an ap
peal to the Supreme Court. There
were only two white prisoners that es
caped, but in addition to these were
eleven negroes, who effected their es
cape also. These negroes are charged
with various misdemeanors,ibut none of
the crimes are Berious. ......
The escape of the prisoners was not
discovered until about 7 o'clock Monday
morning, but Sheriff Logan promptly
gave the alarm and summoned his
The manner in which the delivery
was effected shows, a great deal of
ingenuity and is undoubtedly due to
the fertile brain of M. B. Beese. When
the jail was searched it was found that
a hole large enough to admit the body
of a man had been bored from the cell
of Beese through the ceiling. Through
this hole the prisoners crawled to a
point directly over the stairway. Here
another hole was cut in the ceding and
by means of blankets the prisoners let
themselves down to the floor, and from
there to the ground by means of th
stairway was a very simple thing.
For four successive years the grand
jury has recommended that cages be
put in the jail in place of the present
insecure arrangement, but the county
commissioners have been deaf to such
appeals. No blame can be attached to
Sheriff Logan, nor were the people of
this town surprised at the delivery for
the condition of the jail was well
Blood hounds have been secured and
are now following tracks supposed to
have been made by some of the prison
ers. It is the common supposition that
Beese drove to llpck Hill in convey
ances provided for him by his friends
and there took the train for the North.
He was known to have had about $2,000
on his person.
There is a great deal of excitement
over th'e delivery and rewards will un
doubtedly be offered. On a Bible of
Luckie's left in his cell was found these
words: 'B. B. Bees, David F. Luckie,

Bride and Groom Burn Relative's
House, Then Drown Themselves.
The bodies of Miller Bipley, aged 25,
and his young wife were found in Haw
kins county, near Chattanooga, Tenn.
The couple had been missing for sev
eral days. It appears they burned the
residence of Henry Sutherland, a
brother of Mrs. Bipley last Saturday
night. From her brother's home they
went to the Holston river and drowned
themselves. A note found in Bipley's
pocket requested that the bodies be
buried in the same coffin. The cause,
of the act is supposed to have been ill
feeling between the Bipley and Suther
land families. Bipley was highly con
nected and had been in the United
States army for some time. They had
only been married ten days. Two vials
of laudanum were found near them, and
they had cut the bell rope from the
church, evidently for the purpose of
tying themselves together. Before
taking the fatal leap they piled their
outer gaiments and saddles in a church
and let their horses loose. Bipley was
a close kinsman of Col. Bipley, of
Knoxville, attorney for the Southern

able. He had often expressed a-wish
that there might not be too much lau

mentioned a desire to be told when
death was approaching. " A friend ful

stricken with a terrible pain arouni my

from then on I grew weaker urtll spring,
when from Impaired circulation and impov

set in, bloating my body fearfully. Of course
I was confined to my bed and to a -Id to my

"Several physicians were consulted but
they gave me no relief, until the last came,
whoso helped my stomach difficulty, that
after several months I was able to nit up.
Tho rheumatism, however, stubbornlv
stayed, and I was advised that my only hope
was ine not springs or Arkansas. I was
prepanng to make the Journey, when I was
recommended to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
"JJunnc my Illness. I bad taken two boxes
Of these self same plll3, but not in the way

properly, as I was no longer under a physi

my sister, Mias H. A. Shepard, at my request,
ordered six boxes of Pink Pills for me, as I
eould not leave the house and could only
hobble with the aid of crutches.
"By the time I bad flnished tne pills. I bad
given up crutches, though I was still almost
a skeleton from the ordeal through which 1
had passed. 1 am now quite fl3sby, and tho
only agent that has caused the change is Dr.

that I can only use the thumb and first An

better health than for many years. None of
my friends expected me to live, and at one
time It was feared my reason was giving
way. I do not know how to pay a suffi
ciently high tribute to Dr, Williams' medi
cine. ' It is, I believe, the grandest blood
medicine that was ever prepared.
"Now, having stated my own case, lot me
refer to my sister, Miss II. A. Shepard, who
had a scirrhous growth on her right temple.
This was terribly inflamed and spreading so
fat, that I prevailed upon her to order flvo
dol firs' worth of Dr. Williams Tink Pills,
and? test their virtue as a blood cleaner, as
the only means of arresting the rapid growth
of tho cancer. This she did, and has taken
about seven of the boxes, and is still taking
them. The sore has stopped spreading, and
appears to be healing. When she began to
take the pills she was the thinnest living be
