Jim Lane, the big burly prisoner,
who was taken at Bertelraann's
house on the night of the Ctb,
made a mo3t daring break for lib
erty last night between the hours
of 7 and 8 o'clock.
Lane, with several other prison
ers, has been confined in the large
room above the main entrance to
the police station. For the last
two days he has been "acting
queer," praying and moaning at in
tervals. Last night at 7 :30 a guard took
Lane toward a window in order
that he might get a little exercise.
When a few steps away from the
guard he acted as if about to jump
out of the window. This move
ment was quickly perceived, and
Lane coaxed away toward the upper
No sooner had he reached the
top of the stairs than he made a
wild leap, reaching the first land
ing, a distance of nearly fifteen
feet. Another guard was stationed
at this place, and as he stepped out
to intercept Lane the flying pris
oner slipped away, and in two
bounds was in front of the narrow
passageway that leads out of doors.
When he reached this place he
fell headlong, but, nothing daunted,
jumped up and made a break past
two guards standing in the passage
way. When he reached the receiving
room he struck bad luck. H. S.
Padgett, who was standing there
on guard, lifted his gun and feUed
the prisoner to the ground, cutting
a gash in his scalp four inches in
length, above the junction of the
occipital and parietal bones.
William O'Brien made a break
to help Padgett, but succeeded in
getting in the way of another blow
meant for Lane. -
Policemen and guards rushed
from all directions, and Lane was
subdued with the aid of a strong
pair of handcuffs and four stout
Dr. Cooper was sent for at once,
and attempted to sew up the wound
in Lane's scalp. With three men
at hia arms and shoulders and
Deputy-Marshal Brown at his
head, Lane was still able to jerk
his head in all directions, making
the operation twice as painful and
very much longer than if he had

that Lane had been praying at in
tervals throughout the day and had
just completed a long prayer half
an hour before his break for liberty.

France has coveted Madagascar since
1613, when she gained a foothold at An
oeyt but wars with the natives compelled
her to abandon the conquest. The big
African island, which la twice as long as
New York state and larger than France,
has great natural riches and is of decided
strategic Importance. In 1885 France com
pelled Madagascar to give hor a coaling
station at Dlrgo Suarez and assumed a
partial protectorate, taking caro of Mada
gascar's foreign affairs, much against her
will. Flushed with her conquest of Siam,
France has concluded that the time has
come for the conquest of more territory;
hence the expedition soon to be dispatched
under General Duchesne's leadership.
In reply to France's recent ultimatum
Queen Ranavnlona III refused Franco's
demands for more territory on the Island
and insists upon Madagascar's right to
import munitions of war. As the climate
of the lowlam is hot and deadly, and as
the Hovas, tt dominant tribe, have an
army as large &'the standing army of the
United States, well trained and equipped
with modern weapons, the little French
army of 6,000 or ,000 men will not find
the subjugation of Madagascar an easy
task. On several occasions tho natives
have routed attacking parties of French
and English, und with monthsof warning
Queen Kanavalona will doubtless havo a
warm reception ready for General Du

Lonff Marrlrri Life of Novellat Richard
Malcolm Johnston anil His Wife.
Colonel Ilk-hard Malcolm Johnston, tho
veteran lialtirr.om novelist, and his wife
recently celebrated tho fiftieth anniversary
of their wedding. Mr. Johnston was born
In Hancock county, Ga., 72 year3 ago,
and his early life was spent upon his fa
ther's great plantation, consisting of 2,500
acres. Ho was graduated from Mercer
university, Georgia, in 1841, at the very
head of his class, and then studied law, re
ceiving his sheepskin in 1843. His part-

ner in tho law business was the younger
brother of Alexander II. Stephens, and ho
practiced with success for ten years. On
Nov. 20, 1844, he married Miss Frances
Mansfield, the daughter of Connecticut
people who had moved to Georgia. John
Eton was 23 years of ago and his bride but
15. Their union was blessed by 12 chil
dren, seven of whom are living.
For four years Mr. Johnston was a pro
fessor In Georgia Stato university, and
when the war began be served as aid to
Governor Brown and was employed In or
ganizing the militia of the state. Ho re
moved to Maryland in 1867 and established
tho Penn Lucy school, which he success
fully conducted for a number of years. He
was nearly 60 years of ago before his first
stories of Georgia life were published.
These appeared In The Southern Magazine
of Baltimore in 1870 and were written for
amusement and were not paid for. They
attracted the attention of tho editor of
Harper's Magazine, however, and Mr.
Johnston was asked to contribute to that
Johnston's friend, Sidney Lanier, took
story called "Neel us Feeler's Conditions"
to ScxlbDer's Magazine and later surprised
Colonel Johnston by handing him 980, the
prioa paid for the story. Other stories and
novels followed, the scenes of many being
the town of Powelton, Ga, relied under
the same of "Dukesboro."
Colonel Johnston is a familiar figure in
Baltimore. He is a devout Catholio and
is an intimate friend of Cardinal Gibbons.
His son, Luclen Johnston, is a priest in
charge of a church in Hyattsvllle, Md.
Colonel Johnston is a careful and consci
entious writer, but, unlike most authors,
he never plans his stories before writing
them. Ho allows the plot to develop itself
at its own sweet will and devotes most of
his energy to the elaboration of quaint,
humorous characters. "I was surprised,"
he says modestly, "to find my stories con
sidered of value either in a literary or pe
cuniary wsy. I am a little surprised yet."
