There was quite a force of air coining out of the hole, and the men said there was no use going any farther, because there wasn't any bot tom. They concluded to fish for the rods and drill, but as soon as the rods were dropped into the hole they began to shiver in a queer way. One of the men took hold of the bar with a pair of leather gloves, and he was knocked down. Then Holly well touched the rope and got a shock, because it was wet. There seems to be a pertect natu ral storehouse of electricity.

His absence wji-s not discovered from j prison until the guard went to unlock i his cell in the morning. This was with out doubt the cleverest escape that had taken place at Joliet, and stamped Pad dock as a genius. Extraordinary efforts were made for his recapture. Large rewards were offered, and his descrip tion was cast broadcast. A year later it was discovered that Paddock had a mis tress in Chicago. A watch was set on i 1 her house for several weetcs, auu sine enough oue night Paddock put in an ap pearance. Captain Simon O Donnell, or the police department, had the place surrounded and the daring convict was again in the toils. He was taken bacK to his old quarters at the prison, where he iinallv completed his sentence, not. however, until he had tried several other schemes for escaje, but he was too closely watched to ever again succeed.
