THE SAN ANTONIO LIGHT CONVICTED SLAYER OF FATHER, UNDER DEATH SENTENCE, SKIPS JAIL Visits Wife and Attorney Before He Seeks Safety. Wichita Falls, Tex.. Jan. 11.—Henry Toussaint, so-called “criminal extraor ■dinary,” is at large today. Through the night and at dawn officers searched for the jail-breaker, convicted of killing bis 60-year-old father. Toussaint evidently duplicated the jailer’s keys. Four doors apparently were unlocked and locked again by the jail-breaker, but no one else escaped. His cell was inspected at 9:20 last night and al 10:15 another inspection revealed the cell—but not Toussaint. The bars were soundly in position. The fugitive who was born in the slums of Washington. D. C., worked his way through high school, took a post graduate course in engineering nt Harvard, and became an officer in the United States army, according to court testimony. He visited his wife last night, and then his defense attorney, before be fled town. His wife said she told hi® to give himself up to the sheriff, but he only laughed. Luther Hoffmann, defense attorney in his 1921 trial, was next sought. The attorney was out but servants called police when excited at a lurking figure in the neighborhood, they said. Hoffmann returned, however, before the police arrived, and the attorney said he saw Toussaint coming down th" walk. “Isn't that Toussaint!” he cried, “Hope,” cried the figure, fading into the dark. Toussaint was the first white man , to receive the dentil penalty in Wichita county. He feared being dis inherited by his father and also drew the conclusion that his father instigated bis separation from his wife, who sued him for divorce, its was brought out at his trial. He is 34 years old. Nationwide interest centered about him when he leaped from the Potomae bridge at Washington, a distance of 75 feet. His hands and feet were tied. Still he returned to tbe water’s surface unmarked by injury. COOLER ON FRIDAY Temperature Will Be Around 44 and Skies to Be Cloudy. Thursday night and Friday in San Antonio will be cooler, but Meteorologist J. H.

The night will be partly eloudy which the forecast specifies partly cloudy to cloudy for Friday. The winds will be moderate to fresh and will shift from southwesterly to northwesterly. A moderate area of high barometer early Thursday off the coast of North ern California, will bring the drop in temperature here. The Pacific slope was beginning to feel its effects Thurs day. San Diego reported 46 degrees. The California winter resorts were not the only ones which blossomed with overcoats, as a departing "high" pro duced frost at Tampa and other Florida cities. Outside of these two “highs,” the country was under the influence of 9 large but not unusually energetic low pressure area Thursday morning. Cen tered over the Great Lakes region, it caused cloudiness across all the central states to the Gulf, with most of Texas included. It brought only a little scat tered precipitation, however.
