Parker was captured." quickly by Guard C. Kiesby, but Dupree got awav, and at last accounts had not been taken again. These men were breaking rock in the shed back of the jail, in the yard surrounding it. A team was about to come in with another load of stone, and Guard Kiesby stepped to the gate to open it. In this act he was so situated that while he had a good view of the workhouse door, he had none of the windows, and those windows are not barred. Taking advantage of the moment when his eyes were not on them, the two men got out and op through the window onto the shed roof, and over the high tight feDce and ran for it. The Chase. Dupree ran up Scott street. One shot was fired at him by the guard, but he kept on running." Parker ran up Ripley street, hid in a barn at the corner of Sixth and later in a cellar window of the house. There he was taken by the guard. Two close shots as he was mining up the hill caused him to take to the barn. Dupree was lost to sight in the vicinity of Scott asd Fourteenth. Xo further pursuit of him was made, as Kie-by was badly winded by the time he had got back with Parker. Illds tor Privileges.
