JAIL DELIVERY -KNOXVILLE AND FAIRFIELD SHERIFFS EACH LOSE THREE ,, MEN. l.' ?.•?,- r. -.V 1 ...I-., v:-?. TUNNEL TH110UGH WALL .HMsSSiwJWt'.i One of the Trio Was Being Held On a Serious Charge—Their Recapture Has Not Been Effected Though Bloundhnunds Are After Them. Knoxville, July 10.—(Special.)— -"Without -leaving beliinQ them any 'Waco to show which way they had gone, and without letting fall a whisper of an indication beforehand that they intended to leave their guardians in .the lurch, three prisoners who were 'being held in the Marion county jail, fiae of them on a very serious charge, tunnelled through the wall of the building yesterday- afternoon and jnade their escape. When (he sheriff learned that they had made away' they had secured a start of about five hours atad though bloodhounds were at once secured and started on the jtrail there is little hope of recapturing the fugitives. Cox Badly Wanted. One" of the prisoners, Dan is badly wanted by Sheriff L. 'ot 1 l,.Cox. Byoee. Cox was being held in jail in default of ?200 Tionds on the charge of attempt ing to commit a criminal assault upon ,an aged woman of the city. The oth -er two fugitives were being held on .minor charges and their escape does not make much difference, as does that Cox. who would probably have served-time in the penitentiary had htfi case come to trial. Jail Unguarded, 'c The jail is siutated at the edge" of the town about half a block from any house and in a rather out-of-the-way place, At one side is a deep slough where, the men could easily hide and •which they could use to make their es cape very handily. This is probably the^way they went out of the city though there is no clue to aid, the officers in retermln ing where they went after they'got away from Knoxville. Since •"Frank Baird, the alleged robber of the 'Sullivans at Hamilton was taken to the penitentiary,the jail has been unguard ed by any officer, and the men were •fortunate in being left alone all day and1 night except at meal times, when the deputy sheriff carried their meals to them. Though the jail is a compara tively new one it is rather a flimsy affair and it is probable' that the prls oners had little trouble in digging' a 't hole through the wall. y' Leave in the Afternoon The deputy sheriff carried the men's dinners to them at noon and though •lie entered the jail he noticed nothing unusual. He left the place and did not return until supper time when he found the jail empty and the Mi'ds flown. Investigation revealed a big hole in one of the side walls, showing where the prisoners had made their escape. It is presumed that they left early in the afternoon, and had had the "nolo prepared for their leave taking when the officer was at the jail. Dogs on Trail. Sheriff Bybee was notified of the jail delivery at once and he immediately secured bloodhounds and started them on the'traU. The men had secured so yinuch of a start, however, that he has 'little hope o£ securing them again. JAIL DELIVERY AT FAIRFIELD. Ottumwa Youth and Two Others Es cape from Jefferson County Jail. Fairfield, July 11. (Special) iWilliam Stoops from Ottumwa and two other youths, all of whom were in jail here on the charge of having com mitted burglary at Keosauqua, made theft escape from the Jefferson county jail some time Friday and have not as yet been re-captured.

By tins time the child's body was drawn put of shape his backbone was curved to one side and his hands and feet out of shape. His sufferings were terrible, and he was having from two to six fits a day. I was taking Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine for nervous trouble and saw it was recommended for fits, so thought would see if it would help him. All three doctors had given him up. One-naif bottle stopped the fits and his limbs straightened, and another bottle cured him. He is npw a strong, healthy boy going to school.

Hi *m •M® dis, and it is understood that the for mer was from Des Moines while the latter's home was in Keosauqua. Held For Burglary. The three prisoners have been in the Jefferson county jail for some months awaiting the action of the grand jury on their cose. They were arrested in Van Buren county on the charge of burglarizing a Keosauqua residence last spring, and upon preliminary hear ing they were held to await the action of the grand jury. As the jail at Keo sauqua was not considered safe they were brought to this city, where it was thought they could be kept se curely. Escape Cleverly Planned. The prisoners had evidently been planning their escape for some time for the place where they got through the walls shows much diligent work. They had. dug tlirojigh a brick wall with no better instruments than a piece of wood from a door and a chair leg. However, they had succeeded in concealing the work from the officers until the time came when they consid ered it safe to escape. Friday night they got through the hole and the fact that they had gone was not dis covered until the turnkey started to their cells to give them their break fast this morning. The authorities in the near-fey cities and towns were no tified but as yet nothing has been heard of the fugitives. CLAIMS RECORD. Mt. Aye Holds the State Champion ship for Golden Weddings. When an Iowa town goes after a re cord it invariably gets it. The latest is the record for golden weddings and it is claimed by Mr. Ayr. Mt. Ayr is the capital of Ringgold county and is set down as having 1,729 inhabitants. There are ten long time resident cou ples of that little city who have all passed the golden wedding date. All ten of these patriarchs couples have large families and with one exception all the children of the couples are mar ried and have children. Two of these couples are related to Ottumwa people and the sketches re lating to them will be of interest. Mr. and Mrs. David Joden are the parents of H. Joden, 1626 East Main street. The sketch relating to them, as pub lished in the Des Moines Register and Leader, is as follows: Mr. and Mrs. David Joden. "David Joden was born in Pennsyl vania July 22, 1825. Anna E. Bradley Joden was born in Ohio June 23, 1826. They were married in Summitt county, Ohio, October 28, 1845. They removed from Ohio in 1847 to South Bend, Ind. In 1867 they removed to Michigan and in 1874 removed to Missouri and from there removed to Mt. Ayr in 1885, and since this date have resided there. Mr. Joden hs been engaged in milling. There were born to this couple seven children, four of whom are living and married with an average of four chil dren each. Early in life both Mr. and Mrs. Joden united with the Methodist Episcopal church. In politics Mr. Jo den has always been a republican or whig. He cast his first vote for Zach ary Taylor for president in 1848. Mr. Joden began reading the Chica go Tribune in 1859 and has never missed an issue since. He had a per sonal acquaintance with Hon. Joseph Medill and was greatly bereaved when he learned of Mr. Medill's death. Mr. Joden is healthy and hearty and de spite his 78 years of age he works daily in his flouring mill. He is a to tal abstainer and does cot use tobacco. Mrs. Joden has been strong and hearty and has been a model housekeeper un til about six months ago when she was taken sick and was quite poorly for several months but she is recovering. This couple is contented and happy and are at peace with ths. whole world." Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Lesan. The second couple of interest to Ot tumwa people are Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Lesan. J. P. Lesan who resides in this city at 427 Ottumwa street is a brother-in-law of George W.Lesan. The sketch is as follows: "Both Geo. W. Lesan and his wife Mary M. Lesan. were born in Sebee, Maine. George W. Lesan was born February 11,1830. Mary M. Lesan was bora February 27, 1837. In early life they removed to Stark county 111. They were married March 13, 1853. In 1855 they removed to Ringoid county, where they have reside' ever Bince.They lived on a arm near here until 1894 when they took up their residence in Mt. Ayr. Seven children were born to this couple, four of whom are living and all are married. The last one married was their youngest child, Dr. C. T. Lesan of Mount Ayr, who was married 6 months ago.This aged couple have fifteen grand-children. Mr. and Mrs. Lesan are enjoying the best of health. They celebrated their golden wedding March 13 of this year. A rath er peculiar incident of this golden wed ding was the presence of seven per sons who witnessed the original mar riage fifty years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Lesan are members of the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. Lesan is a total abstainer and does not use to bacco. Mr. Lesan was- a republican for many years but drifted into the greenback .movement and later on be came a devoted follower of W. J. Bry an. The children and grand-children all reside in this county and are fre quent visiors at the old folks' home. There are in all,about one hundred and fiifty persons living in this couny nam ed Lesan, and all are related. George W. Lesan seems to, be a sort of chief among the Lesans. This couple iives contented and happy and are respect ed by all who know them." ANOTHER DIVORCE PETITION. Ninth Woman in Three Days to Desire Separation. The ninth petition for divorce in three days was filed Thursday in the office of the clerk of the district court by Attorney B. W. Scott. Eliza B. Klinger is the plaintiff and she de sires to be separated from her husband Frederick Kllngler giving the charge of desertion as the grounds for the ac tion.

ORDERS MISTAKEN Two Milwaukee Freight Trains Collide at 8 O'clock Last Evening—Engines Demolished and Seventeen Freight Cars Piled in Confused Mass. Several dead and others fatally in jured is the result of a disastrous head end collision which occurred on the Milwaukee about one and one-half miles north of South Amana last even ing at a few minutes past 8 o'clock. Joseph Dusek and George Haynes and four unknown tramps are dead. George Kissinger, A. L. Joff, Charley Bingham and E. C. Seeley are injur ed. So far as can be learned no one whose home is in Ottumwa was in jured. VV /•^'si^The Dead. JOSEPH DUSEK, Cedar Rapids,fire man on second section train No. 64. GEORGE HAYNES, Marion, brake man. FOUR UNKNOWN TRAMPS. The Injured. A. L. Joff, Marion, engineer second section, train No. 64. E.'C". Seeley, fireman on second sec tion train No. 63. George ICissenger, Cedar Rapids, en gineer second section train No. 63. Charley Bingham, brakeman. Due to Mistake. The collision is said to be due to a mistake in reading orders on the part of the crew of the north bound train. Both trains in the collision were sec ond sections and they were following Nos. 63 and 64. The second section of No. 64, north bound had orders it is said to remain on the siding at South Amana until after the passage of the second section of No. 63. The train crew on the north bound train follow ed their order as if it had been written Amana instead of South Amana and started for the next station. They had gone on about one and one-half miles beyond South Amana when they were met by the second section of No. 63 coming south. Wreck at Curve. At the point where the collision oc curred there is' a heavy grade and deep cut and in addition a curve which pre vents a view down the track for more than one or two hundred yards. No. 63 was coming down grade and it is es timated that the train must have bAi going at the rate of 45 miles an hour. No. 64 was running with a light load ancl was probably going up the grade at about 20 or 25 miles per hour. Be cause of the curve and the deep cut it it is no', believed that either of the crews were able to see the approaching train for more than five second? be fore the collision. Terrific Collision. The engines met at the most difficult point of the grade and cut and the collision was terrific. The engines were demolished and the jumping of the crews was all that saved the four men from instant death. Nearly all the cars in both trains were thrown from the track and those near the bead ends were utterly demolished and pllfed together in broken scraps along with their contents Ottumwa Wreckihg Crew. ^V Wrecking crews were dispatched at once to the scene of the disaster from Ottumwa and Cedar Rapids, and the work of clearing the track and giving aid to the injured men was begun. Dead and Injured. ,il- Joe Dusek, of Cedar Rapids, who was firing on train No. 64, was found with both legs cut off and he died be fore medical assistance could reach him. A. J. Joff, of Marion, engineer on No. 64 was injured in the left side and it is believed that he has two ribs broken. Charley Bingham, one of the head end brakemen, was terribly scalded, and there is no hope for his recovery. George Kissinger, the engineer pull ing No. 63, was scalded and crushed and it is believed that he will die. George Haynes, a brakeman is dead and it is supposed that the body is under the wreckage. The bodies of four tramps, who were stealing their way on No. 64, were found terribly mangled and cut to pieces. Enormous Loss. The loss to the Milwaukee cotnpany will be something enormous. Aside from the destruction of the two en gines and a large number of box cars there will be a total loss on many cars of merchandise and heavy dam age upon practically everything being carried on the two trains. The track was blocked and torn up for a several hundred feet. The Mil waukee passenger No. 9, due in this city at 12:18 o'clock this morning was sent around by Des Moines and ar rived over the Rock Island several hours late. The north bound passen ger was sent by the same route. NATIONAL EDITORIAL ASS'N. A. W. Lee Returns From Annual Meet ing at Omaha From Friday's Dally. A. W. Lee returned this morning from Omaha, where he has been for two days in attendance at the annual meeting of the National Editorial as sociation. This association includes in its membership edtors from all parts of the United States, there be ing present at the Omaha meeting prominent editors from Maine, Minne sota, Mississippi, Louisiana and Ala bama, Oregon and California and all the intermediate ..states. The discus sions of the meeting were instructive and helpful, and indicate that the newspaper men throughout the United States are realizing more and more the importance of good business man agement and are, indeed, recogpized as capable and successful business in. Putin MBDfiCtlva eommimitlBfl-JjUBOttnt. 1HE OTTUMWA COUBIEB No thought was more strongly brought out at this meeting or more fully commended and applauded, than the one that the- newspaper is a -business enterprise which should ask and which in fact, deserves patronaige sole ly and entirely upon the grounds of giving full value received for every dollar invested'With it. The question of party patronage and patronage along political lines is being more and more eliminated from the considera tion of the successful newspaper man. It is with him a question of dollar and cent value which he is able to fur nish his patrons in the .way of news and advertising services, far more than anything else. This does not mean that newspapers are breaking away from party lines, but that they are evincing an Independence within party lines, and a strength because of the adoption of good business methods, which is redounding to the benefit of the press throughout the country. By this progressive body of. newspaper men, no sentiment was more thorough, ly affirmed that that the successful newspaper must be controlled, by the man who runs the paper, must be con sistently conducted in the interest of the general public and must be abso lutely free from personalities and en tangling alliances of every charac ter. The reception tendered the editor ial delegates by the citizens of Omaha was most cordial and gracious. Omaha is a great city and her enormous pack ing industries and wholesale interests make her the queen of the cities locat ed on the Missouri river. ADVERTISED LETTERS.

Secretary Thomas in speaking of the unexpected find of onyx in the mine stated: "In our cut and tunnel where jve have been getting zinc only our miners unexpectedly struck a bed of onyx rock.

"AN OPERATION NECESSARY." How these words after the examination strike terror to a woman's soul, and with what regrets s'be bears them, when she considers that the operation has become necessary through her own neglect. Female derangements cannot cure themselves, and neglecting the warnings of nature only means putting it off until there is no cure.
