How They Worked .\s soon as llie frost was out ot (lie Brotind. work began.

This niiido a |ia�aaK(�-wuy to the space nndri' the floor of llie building. A workluB space was Bradimlly sloped away from the the wall ot the Iniildiiig. the earth removed bolii.c spretid well back out of the way. when the wall of the building: wns reaclieil ilie i-enl work bi'uan. .\ hole was sunk to a depth of tour and a half feet jind plettly larye enoutli for a man to work coiiirortable In. This was on tin west .side of tlie building next to tin nurseries which take up a strip alonp the exhibition ground feu.'e next tlie lake. .-V horizontal tunnel was then started in a westerly direcrion. This was where llm real work be-Clin. Ill the dead of iil,i?lil a workiiiK party of two or throe would slip under the floor and commence operations. One man would dig and load llie earth removed into a liox on a little Bind which was drawn back liy means of a rope which had been braided out ' of all mnnnpr of .strings, ribbons, and i bits of .'loth. The earth would be carried back under the buiiding tind spread well out of tlie way. To supply Itsht for the operations were home-made candles niauufaiHured out of bits of strlni; and tallow or grease I Klolen from llie kitchen, making ;i i sort ot old fashioned dip. 1 As tile tunnel pro.uressed fiiriluM' to the west and out under the yard of the , compound wtiere the sentry walked I up and down at all lioiirs. a small hole about an Inch in diaii>eter was , drilled upwards to the surface ami I covered with a little stone to allay suspicion.

By the splendid work of the I j.pj,try's beat to allow a good chance i rayed the opportunities offered the tlremen the tire was soon under con-j escape The exit shaft however,' women of Alberia, .Mrs, S, William.^ i trot. U is understood that the loss is | was'not cjompleied until the time for gave an able inierpretaiion of "Wo-j covered by insurance. ] escape was at hand. Then came a period of waiting and getting ready for the finale which must be pulled off on a dark niglit, Pai'ks must be made ready. Prov-isions must be gathered bit by bit from the kilclien and no suspicion of the attempt must be allowed lo reach i the ciiards. Tuesday niglii was the time picked, and as il was very dark after midnight it suited the purpose very well. 'I'hroughout the niglit the prisoners were very restless. The leaders lu the plot would nnlurBlly he the first to try their bund al a getaway, and doubtless the rest of tlie camp wn.s tense with excitement to learn whether they had made good ami if there wa.s any chance for more to follow. The guarijs felt that there was some-j thing on foot but were baffled to I know what it might be. That th? , suspicion of the guards was noticed i and kept others ot the prisoners from ' attempting an escape Is shown by the fact that inside the tunnel was found the pack of a would-be fiigiiivt? who must have fancied the guards were wise and that it wasn't siife to make the break for fear a bullet might stop his iirogress. Inside the pack i were found two loaves of bread, sonu! bai:on, a bottle of coffee and some old clothes which iiiislu be usc'd for a di.sguise. Screened by Trees Once outali;!! the liole of the tunnel, well screened hy the trees of the nursery, the fugitives crawled away from the camp in a soutlieriy dlrcclion. hiding behind a row of hedge trees thicker than the rest. This '.va.'i followed for over a lumdred /;u'dH when the (lermans made a noiseless dash over the high-hoard fence surrounding the grounds into llender.soii Park, free al last. What direction was taken from lliere lui one knows. .Since the escape has been ntdsed abroad there have been reports that one or more of the men had been seen at .Magrath and at Warner, but these reports h9Ve provetl groundlesK. The .Mounted police have a good description ot the men and have hurried men out In every direction but none have yet come to liglil. .Ma.ior Hirnie who is in charge of the dotentlon camp, says the escape was niaile in a manner never thought possible, lie has frustrated plot after plol of the prisoners in Hie various camps, some of them very In-genlnuH, but this was so elaborate thdl il was never .sUKpeciiwI, Me is naturally chagrimHl that such a thing could happen and has hopoR that some of IIk^ fugllivos will yet be lh Inst,, whicli took place In the spacious hall ot the rjianiond City school.
