They were, however, subsequently captur ed a short distance from the work house by Superintendent English Akin, assisted by his brother John Akin. The negro prisoners asked the tem porary guard Roily Peyton for permis sion to go to the fire to warm. They caught him unawares as they passed and knocking him down secured his gun. They tried to gag the goard and then taking his gun they fled down the road near the home of Mrs. Jennie Akin. The guard gave the alarm and Superintendent Akin and his brother John Akin, who were close by put out after the escaping negroes. The negro Patterson, who is con sidered as quite a desperate character, showed fight. He had the gun that he had taken from the guard and threat ened to shoot, but Mr. Akin called for a double barrel shot gun and the ne gro evidently reconsidered the matter and decided to surrender, action that was imitated by his companion. In the future the guards at the work house will give these two negroes few er liberties and will keep a close watchout on them. Mr. Peyton, the guard knocked down, was on tempora ry duty, having taken the place of a guard who was sick. A RELIABLE COUGH MEDICINE Ts a valuable family friend.
