From Jail in This City Must Have
Been Swallowed by the Earth.
Most Likely Chance of Recapture
Is Futile.
Xo trace of the eight prisoners
who escaped from the county jail in
this city has ever been discovered,
and Sheriff Anderson has concluded
that each and every one of the eight
is gone for good.
It. is probable that no other jail
delivery of such large proportions in
the state was ever so successful as
the one in question. At other times
there have been jail deliveries, but
some of the escaped convicts have
always been recaptured. Very sel
dom has every one bef-n caught, but
it has always happened that some
trace of the men has been found.
Where the eight men who escaped
from jail last month went or where
they are now is not known. And the
strangest part of the whole affair is
that Sheriff Anderson has not re
ceived one word of encouragement
from any of the officers in this or
surrounding counties. The men have
disappeared as completely as if the
ground had swallowed them up.
Sheriff Anderson fcr many weeks
thought it probable that he would
get Tom
gloan, the man arrested at
Ferney last summer for shooting a
man in a saloon. Sloan had a sweet
heart near Ferney, and the sheriff
knew this. Accordingly he ordered a
deputy at Ferney to watch the place
where the girl lived to see if Sloan
appeared. The deputy is supposed to
have done this, and if he has, his
efforts have been of no avail, for Mr.
Sloan has not been apprehended.

congratulated on securing such a
good attraction.
