The question of tilling the third Ward principalship made vacant by the promotion of or. Diefenbacher next occupied the Board. It developed that there Are a number of applicants the most of whom Resillez at a distance. Letters of recommendations were read As to the relative attainments of Charles f. Null of Perry county Elmer 1. Barnett and n. C. Barbehenn of York county. These three seem to be the most available candidates and upon one of them tie Choice will undoubtedly fall. Tell be prisoners two escape from jail but six prefer to remain. Montour county came very near being the scene of a wholesale jail delivery monday. As it was two of the worse prisoners confined in the county jail made their escape and Are now at Large the Story throughout is a remarkable one the part relating to the escape especially which was elected in a manner that might have been considered next to impossible. The door leading into the Cage in addition to a Stout padlock is secured by a ledge or slide an Inch wide which on the manipulation of a bar enclosed in a Box on the Wall moves out an Inch or so effectually covering the interstices Between the door and the Frame supporting it. Shortly after dinner monday mrs. Breckbill bad occasion to remove some bedding from the Cage receiving the same from one of the prisoners at the door. She is quite positive that she re locked the padlock also that she turned the lever which pushes the slide out Over the Edge of the door. It appears however that she forgot to close the door of the lever Box or to remove the key from the lock. The Box is to the left of the door and presumably out of reach of the prisoners. Last night it was found by Experiment however that a Man with a Long Arm by climbing to the top of the door of the inside could reach out Between the bars far enough to touch the door of the lever Box it shut which brought the lock with the keys within reach. Once having the Hunch of keys it was an easy matter to select the right one and unlock the Cage door the padlock being easily within reach As was also the lever which throws Back the ledge or slide. About 2 of clock the sheriffs household was aroused by an excited voice in the hallway exclaiming a mrs. Breckbill the prisoners Are getting out a the voice was that of George Crossley himself a prisoner. The sheriff being absent mrs. Breckbill hurried to the spot to find that it was Only too True. Joseph Caddy and William splain both of whom were awaiting trial for larceny had skedaddle. Caddy left a pair of worthless slippers behind and escaped in George Crossley a new shoes. The rest of the prisoners six in number were dozing in their cells when the escape was made. Upon awaking they Tnie in eds Nelv and Solnin and Fnnnk a a it door into Capo. At night the prisoners were All locked in the Cage As usual. It was a curious fact to reflect upon that Only a few hours before they might All have walked out into Freedom and yet preferred to remain behind bars. Some one expressing Surprise that they had not All taken advantage of the Opportunity to escape Crossley remarked a we were not going to miss a cinch like this. Grub Here is All right a new principal for grammar school. The school Board held a special meeting tuesday night the following members present Fischer Harpel Barber Byerly Kentei Macher Werkheiser Green and Black. The principal business on hand was the election of a teacher for the third Ward grammar school to succeed 1>. N.
