as it was to the man who, growing tired of
confinement, "opened the door and walked
out," or it may be achieved only by the sub
tlest strategy and most reckless daring If
the accused be wealthy as well as guilty his
money may avail him in tbe retention of a
clever lawyer, the packing of a jury, the
subomction of witnesses, the compounding
of the felony, or the purchase of straw bail.
Even after conviction, if all these have failed,
he need not bo without hope, for influence

will result in a suspension of sentence. There

Justice who was recaptured the other day, is
only CJ years old, but be has had a long expe
rience as a In w breaker, and particularly as
a forger. After serving a term iu prison he
went to Medina, Tenn., and married an esti
mable widow. He then removed to C'larks
ville, vlier he was preparing to open a to
Imcco factory, when a deputy sheriff arrived
and carried lniu to Huntingdon to answer to
a charge of forgery. Johnson could not give
bonds and was j:ulL Because of his per
sistent efforts to escape he was sent to Nash
ville for safe keeping, with an order from
Judge Swiggart that bo might be released on
furnishing a $2,000 bond. One morning
Sheriff Marshall, of Nashville, received by
mail a bond in the sum designated.
It was made by D. W. C. Nowlin, J. D.
Kiug and J. J. Birdsons, f Madison county,
Teuu., who hail gone beiore the county clerk
and qualified as to their solvency. The clerk
had attached his certificate, nnd the bond
wasduly'approved by the circuit court judge.

months later the Carroll county court mot,
and the startling fact became known that the
bond was a cunning piece of forgery perpe
trated by Johnson in his cell. The rascal Is a
smooth, pleasant talker, who looks like a
clergyman. He was a regular attendant at
church, where he made it a point to ingrati
ate himself with those he had marked down
In recent years, though, the escapes of
"Boss" Tweed and William J. MeGurigle have
no parallel. Both were carefully planned and
successfully executed. In the first instance
tbe fugitive was returned to custody after a
long chase. In the second a "private ar
rangement'' allowed theexile to go home, pay
a fine and resume tbe rights aud privileges of
a private citizen.
William J. McGarigla was for years a
prominent figure in Chicago political and
official circles. Beginning as a policeman, be
rose to the rank of chief of detectives, and
then became superintendent of the depart
ment. This position he resigned in order to
make a campaign as nominee for sheriff of
Cook county. Although defeated at tbe polls
he retained political power sufficient to secure
appointment to the lucrative and important
place of warden of tbe Cook County hospital.
While holding this office scandals nnd abuses
came to light which resulted first in an in
vestigation, then indictment, arrest, trial and
conviction. While under sentenco of two
years' imprisonment in tbe penitentiary at
Joliet, McOarigle made appeal to Sheriff
Matsou for a final interview with his wife.
The request was granted, and the convict
went borne in the personal custody of the
sheriff. An affecting farewell ensued, and
McOarigle retired to the bathroom, while his
wife and Mr. Matson engaged in conversa
tion. Tbe moments went by, but tbe prison
er did not return. The sheriff grew uneasy,
then suspicious, then alarmed. Bursting in
the locked door, an open window told the
story. The prisoner was gone.
Subsequent developments showed that the
escape bad been planned with the minutest
attention to detail nnd results. McOarlgle's
active part ended when be bad worked on
the sheriff's sympathies to convey him to bis
residence. " The moment the fugitive jumped
i from the bathroom window he was bustled
into a close carriage, which drove rapidly to
the lake suora, There a boat was waiting,
and by this means he was conveyed on board
a Canadian vessel, which immediately set

Issue. The Illinois supreme court passed fa

the time of his flight, a new trial was or

It is not so very long ago that still another
criminal escaped from Cook county jail, this
time through the aid of outside friends and
tbe connivance of bis cell mate. He Was
charged with a felony. Ho had already
served a term in the Illinois penitentiary,
and, if again convicted, his sentence, under
tbe provisions of the habitual criminal act,
would be twenty years' imprisonment. His
cell companion had done nothing of a serious
nature. Soon after the transfer of tbe two
from a police court to tbe county jail, a man
appeared with an order for tbe release on bail
of John Robinson, the lesser criminal The
turnkey was directed to let John Robinson
loose. He went to the cell and said as he un
locked the door : "John Robinson is wanted."
John Robinson never stirred, but Harvey

than 2 per cent, of the funds intrusted to

given them by Sheriff Flynn. At any rate
the big iron cased room in which they were

dawn. It developed that the cashier, who
was a small, muscular person, had "braced"
his way up the wide chimney to tbe roof.

kets of the bed clothes were attached, the
other iniuns were hauled up, a rope was
constructed, one end tied to the chimney, the
other thrown to the ground, and the escape
was completed. From Canada the joviul
rascals wrote liaek that they never would
have left had they not been driven out by tho
rats and lualbugs.
V. French Roth, alias Rogers, alius n
dozen other names, is one of the most pict
uresque rascals of the day. He has been a
deputy coroner of New York city, a physi
cian iu regular practice, the proprietor of
business exchanges, iuatrituouiul bureaus,
detective agencies aud other devices, started
with inteut to deceive ami defraud, without
number. Besides all these accomplishments,
he was an expert in tho manipulation of
safes. Of course his shining ability as a law
breaker made him an object of solicitude to
tho police of the various large cities. One
day, soon after the successful working of a
big confidence game, he was seen iu a west
ern city and arrested "on suspicion." He
was taken to the chief of detective's private
office for a course of questioning. Before
the '"sweating" process had ended the chief
was called from the room. He went out and
locked the door after biui. Mr. Rogers im
proved the opportunity to examine the safe.
Its door opened ill response to his delicate
manipulation. He took out a revolver, a pair
of handcuffs, a gold watch and a sheet of
postage stamps. Then he climbed from a
window, slid down a water piie, reached the
ground, stroll-il into the city ball and met a
couple of rt!rt4rs.
"Come with me," he said; "I may have an
item Tor you."
They followed him to the office of the chief
"Chief," he said cordially, but in an under
tone so as not to le overheard, "your cheap
detectives ran me iu this morning without
cause, and simply for the reason that they
think I am a bad man. I was left alone in
their room. Right under the noses of your
force I robled the safe aud escaped. Here is
what I took. Now if you want to arrest me
for a real crime here are two gentlemen of
tbe press ready to hear my story aud hold
your administration up to everlasting ridi
cule." The chief seized the plunder nnd opened
the door. "Get out," was all he said. At

A CHINAMAN'S DASH FOR L.IBKRTT.
Here is a daring attempt to secure liberty
which failed recently. The steamer Thames
had just left Singapore, and was threading
her way out through shouls and reefs when
the cry of "Man overboard" was raised. Tbe
life buoy was let go from aft and the boat at
once lowered, but the man a Cliinaman
who had jumped over was seen to be swim
ming as hard as hecould for the shore, helped
by the fast running tide. The Chinaman
was found to be a prisoner who bad been
broughton board handcuffed under the guard
of a corporal and private of the Straits police.
He had slipped out one hand and Jumped
over. It also appeared that the man had got
away from Sumatra with $10,000 and had
been caught in Singapore while trying to
change a t3 hill. When broughton board
guiu he was locked up iu tho sheep pen.

AUBCRN, N. Y., May 12. The habeas

Corbett, of Buffalo, came tip before Judge
Underwood here Saturday. The conten
tion of Kemmler's counsel in this case, Is
that the legislature can not take from a
constitutional officer sheriff a power
which he has and bestow it upon an officer
not constitutional warden of the state's
prison. In other words, that the law is
invalid in that it makes the warden the
executioner instead of the sheriff. The
case was merely stated, and submitted

- As stated a wee c ago, when ware given
the opinions of Prof . C W. Foss there
on, the importance of the issue raised by
the Bennett lav of Wisconsin, has
prompted The Nrth, the Scandinavian
American newspt per published at Min
neapolis,' to ask the opinion as to the
measure and the principles involved
therein, of a la'ge number of men in
leading positions among the Scandinavian-American
Lutherans in Wisconsin,
Illinois and elsewhere. The answers
thus far returned to tbe questions asked
continue to be mostly in favor of the law,
and fail to show any great opposition
from Swedish-Lutherans. Prof. A. W.
Williamson, of iugustana college, is
among those who have sent in their an
swers. The questions asked bim and his
responses appear below:
1. Are you in favor of compulsory
2. Do you apprive of tho Bennett law?
3. Do you find in that law any dispo
sition to unduly meddle with the civil
ami religious liberties of the citizens?
4. Does the law ptevent religious in
struction in private schools? No.
5. Is it the duty of the state to provide
for the education o' its citizens in the
English language! Yes.
0. Should fore gn-born citizens try to
perpetuate the nuional sentiments and
the language of the nations to which by
birth they belong ? No. Those foreign
born citizens must honor the country of
their ancestry, -ho become the best
American citizens, and those best per-
IHUuate its institutions fin American soil,
who seek only to introduce such institu
tions as are adapted to take root here,
and improve American institutions. They
should seek to have their children as pro
ficient and accurate in the language of
this country as those who use it exclu
sively and. so far as does not interfere
with this, seek proficiency in the language
of their ancestors as a valuable accomp
lishment. 7. If not, is it tiot the duty of foreign
born citizens to assist the state in its en
deavors to familii.rize their children with
the language of the country, and thus to
educate them into intelligent American
citizens? Yes a duty the neglect of

A GERMAN MARKET" FAIR.
the Ancient Teuloote Custom as It
Flourishes at Hanover.
This week there has been an opportunity to
tee a market fair in Hanover, which occurs
only thrice a year, and lasts but two or three
days. In fact, I am just returned from wan
dering about town in a drizzling rain, bump
ing umbrellas in the crowd of chaffering and
chattering Hanoverians, and receiving an oc
casional curse from some booth owner be
cause of the unintentional but none the less
wet stream of water which my umbrella tip
plumped down upon her cakes or candy. The
(tails and booths for tbe display of the wares
were to be found in various parte of the town,
according to the nature of the sales; thus live
stock was to lie had in one section, books in
another, "notions" in the third, and so on.
today I spent my time in the old portion
of tho city, and here the center of bustle and
interest was the ancient Market church.
From the square upon which this church
stands the lines of booths stretched op the
streets, radiating right and left from the
Market square. These booths were hastily
rigged affairs, built of boards, with their
tops cpveVed with canvas against the rain, so
that they looked like a row of Indian wig
wams, t-very conceivable article, and some
inconceivable, were to be purchased along
these rows, behind which stood men and
women crying up-their wares or doling out
small portions to the peasant buyer.
Before 4 o'clock of this rainy afternoon the
oil lamps were lighted and flared picturesque
ly in the wind. Through the middle of the
streets uuri;i the crowd of buyers, many of
them country folk, who had come in solely
for the fair. Tbey clattered over the cobble
stones iu their sabots and beat down prices
with high heart and volubility. Above rose
the gray old houses aud high over all the
venerable and nitLSMve church, under whose
walls for five centuries humanity was bought
and sold, lived and died. It was a scene for a
Dickens, and 1 sighed fur his insight and his
graphic power of description.
At some of the liooths a foreigner was es
pecially tempted to rid himself of a few pen
nies or niarks. For example, here hung by
the score those lung, porcelain bowled pipes
which are so typical of that country, and
bard by were all manner of blue earthen
ware drinking jugs, mugs and tankards.
with bibulous muttoes in German script and
metal covers that were a joy to see. In some
rases some magic sign like "Aus Italien"
was hung in front of the booth, and there
you were sure to find cheap jewelry, tawdry
aintings or bizarre house ornaments, those
behind the improvised counter being dark,
tallow and melancholy eyed, and wearing
large rings iu their oars after the manner of

ous array of knives, big and little, ranging
from the tiny nail trimmer to the long, keen
blade of the hog killer. The motley of sales
and sights only made the scene richer and a
characteristic picture of foreign street life-
lam told that the articles to be bought at
these fairs, though cheap, are shoddy and un
reliable, and are avoided by the wily citizen,
the chief profit accruing from the open

proprietors. Cor. Hartford Courant.
How to Make the Feet Look Small.
"There is everything in knowing how to
Iress the feet properly," said a lady of fash
"Sly feet are not small, yet I manage to
get credit for decidedly Cinderella-like ex
tremities. The trick is in knowing how to
dress them. See now, my foot is exactly as
long as a No. 3 shoe, and a C width. Do I
therefore wear a No. S C, as most women
would I Not a bit of it. I wear a A double
A. The longer a shoe is, the narrower it al
ways looks, of course so that's the first gain;
tnd in the second place, I can wear a shoe
that is narrower than my foot really is with
perfect comfort, because there is so much
room in the length of the shoe. It just trans
forms the undesired width into tbe desired
length, you see. Most women have an idea
that a short foot is pretty, no matter how
wide and shapeless it may be, and only a
few of those who really see the beauty of a
long, slender foot know how to secure it for
themselves. An old French bootmaker
taught me the trick years ago, and my feet
have been an inexpressible comfort to me
ever since." Chicago Herald.
Shyness of the German Woman.
Tho German woman is stereotyped, runs
in grooves, is inclined to worship crystallized
forms, authority, order, propriety and placid
commonplaces. In short, she is slightly Chi
nese. She lacks tbe courage of her convic
tions. She might be more fearless, less
conventional, have more initiative and lose
noue of her womanliness. Whether or not
courage is an essentially womanly virtue
need not le discussed here. At all events,
Bum, whatever their theories, have usually
found it rather a convenient thing to have
in the house. It seeks and induces truth,
while timidity is the mother of lies. If it is
worth while for women to be honest, it is
worth while for them to be fearless. The
noble German woman described by Tacitus
was no coward. The German professor of
today is not so fierce an object in the land
scape as his long haired warrior ancestor,
but bis modern helpmate seems far less sure
of herself and him, far less strong than was
the heroic wife in the remote days chron
icled by the Roman historian. Blanche Willis
Howard in New York Herald.
Women as Sargoons.
"No, I don't like the idea of having my log
sawed off by a girl," said a patient in one of
the largo hospitals. "I should be afraid that
she might suddenly remember that her bangs
were not becomingly arranged, and stop to
fix them in the midst of the operation."
"Not a bit of it," roplied a gray whiskered
practitioner. "I'd as lief trust a woman in a
delicate operation as a man. It's all nonsense
about a wuiuau's uncertain nerves; they're
quite as steady, and often much steadier, than
those of half the male physicians. A woman
who has bad as good a medical education as
a man is equally as well fitted to practice. In
my opinion, medicine is one of the best fields
for women, for Women prefer to employ one
of their own sex iar-'inany delicate surgical
operations which they do not care to coofide
to men. After all, it stands to reason that a
woman is better adapted to comprehend the
diseases of women, of which manyof them
have had individual experience." New York
