AyroM, mid from my long acquaintance frith him as a workman, do not liosltuto to commend him as ovory way capable of meeting tho expectation of my form or patrons. 11. F. MEEK. Sept. ) A horrible and fiendish crime was committed on Sand Ripple, just over the Henry line in this county, Sunday night. A party of thicc men, named Harrison Washburn (alias Staples), Jim Estis, and Isaiah Onan went to the house of a man by the name of Elisha Curtis, took him fjrom his bed, whipped and beat him brutally, and while one of tlicm stood guard over him the other two ravished his wife and daughter repeatedly until their brutish passions were gratified. The daughter, who was only 13 years of age, ran to the house of a neighbor by the name of Oliver Curry, broke open his door and claimed his protection, but the miserable scoundrels followed her, compelled Curry to put her out of his house, nnd within twenty feet of his door tore the clothes from her person and accomplished their hellish designs. They then look Curtis to the creek and after beating and making him pray for twenty minutes turned him loose. After leaving they returned and asked the parties if they knew them, nnd threatened if a word was said about their actions they would return and kill them. They claimed to be detectives from Indiana who had come to that section to look after evil doers, and were at the house for about three hours, and although several families live in the immediate vicinity there was not a fire-arm owned by any of them and not a finger could be lifted against them. They remained in the neighborhood for several days, and up to Thursday night were believed to be at the house of one John Thurman, and Deputy Sheriff Tobin took out a posse of men yesterday morning to assist the Constable in the 13ald Knob precinct in arresting them. Every effort should be made to secure their arrest as hanging is much too good for them. Convicts Bsoape. Thursday afternoon, about five o'clock, just as the hell rang at the Penitentiary to call the prisoners to supper, a party of live or six convicts ran through the hemp hackling room and threw a ladder which they had made by bolting two 12 foot planks together at the end and screwing a number of cleats upon them, up ngaiiiit the rear wall, and rjuick as it touched the wall four white men, viz: Joseph Ward, sent trom Johnson county for life lor murder; Robert Daniels, from Todd cotintv for life for murder; W. T. Grant, from Anderson county for twenty-one years for tn urder, and James Berry, from Knox county for murder, ran up it and let themselves down on the outside by means of n small rope. The guards on the walls opened tire upon them immediately and in their haste to get over two-or three ol them attempted to go down the rope nt the same time when it broke with them, and in the tall Daniels hurt his back so badly that he could not move after striking the ground, ami Berry broke his ankle and could only run as far iib the rear of the Colored Public School Building before he wns compelled to fit down and give up Ward and Grant got down all right and ran rapidly up the bottom. When about three hundred yards off tha former was shot through the head and killed instantly by some one with a rille, but Grant 'kept on and made good his escape, though closely followed by City Marshal Horgan and Mr. George Triplett, one of the gtturds, up the hill towards the Georgetown pike, until they were completely broken down, Ik-was last seen going out in the direction ot the Glens Creek pike. Miss Virie McClain of Henderson, Ky., who won the hearts of all who came in contact with her during her recent visit to Frankfort, has accepted an important position in the choir of one of the leading churches ol Denver, Colorado, and her friends here will he gratified, though not surprised, to learn that she is already becoming a favorite, both in koc'uU and musical circles in that city, as is evidenced by notices ol the press. The following notice of her singing at the Denver Exposition in to a toast is clipped from llic Rocky Mountain News: Misa McClain sung, in a most effective maimer, Millard's "Waiting" hi response to this toast to her old Keiitni'k home. Her enunciation is diMinct. and her clear ami thoroughly cultivated voice is of great conipnsn and flexibility and is especially pleasing in the high notes. She sings with much feeling nnd explosion and will certainly become a favorite with tho inusio loving people of Denver. In response to long and nearly applnue she sung that laniiliar and touchine liallnd, "Old Folks at Home," in a way that delighted all those who heard her. Another crop of weddings are about ripe. The ladies should not forget that the fall opening takes place at the Arcade next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
