Tells How She Was Saved
by Taking Lydia EL Pink-
Logansport, Ind. — "My baby was
over a year old and I bloated till I was
a burden to myself.
I suffered from fe-
male trouble so I
could not stand on
my feet and I felt
like millions of
needles were prick-
ing me all over. At
last my doctor told
me that all that
would save me was
a n operation, but
this I refused. I
told my husband to get me a bottle of
Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Com-
pound and I would try it before I would
submit to any operation. He did so and
1 improved right along. I am now doing
all my work and feeling fine.
"I hope other suffering women will try
your Compound. I will recommend it
to all I know." —Mrs. Daniel D. B.

rile three men gained entrance to
the front offices by asking to see
Frank H. Rice, parole officer. They
had obtained a revolver in some way
and, immediately upon entering the
prison lobby, demanded the kevs of
the prison. Jack Martin, turnkey,
was the only prison official Ihere.
Although unarmed, he grappled with

In the warden's office were Gorfrev,
Judge Thomas and Miss Foster, the
warden's stenographer. Almost the
first shot fired from the inner office
penetrated two doors and killed
Drover on the opposite side of the
hall. He had been developing photo-
graphs and was shot through the
heart just as he emerged from the
vault. Oates was sitting In the room
where Drover was killed. A boy
rushed to the door and shouted "They
are taking the keys from the turn-
key," adding when Oates started for
the Inner door, "don't go in there:
they've got guns," "1 have, too," re-
plied Oates, and as the men, after a
struggle with the turnkey, started to
close the door leading to the inner
offices, Oates fired, but missed.
The return fire Instantly killed Mr.
Drover In the rear of the building.
Kuntz flred at Godfrey, killing him in-
stantly. Judge Thomas, who had been
sitting in the warden's office, rose and
was shot and instantly killed by Reed.
J. W. Cast eel. a prisoner, stood at
the door and notified Oates they were
coming. Oates stood in front of the
door with his gun leveled, but the
turnkey grabbed the shotgun, telling
him they had the woman in front of
them. Oates then left and ran down
the hallway to the sidedoor entrance
and met Reed almost at the door.

Kuntz had been wounded in the
fight in the inner office, by Deputy
Oates, but assisted by the others, all
three passed out the gate and lev
elled a revolver at two guards in the
elevated tower In front of the pen-
itentiary, used as an arsenal. Both
men threw up their hands, being un-
able to fire on account of the girl and
parole officer, both of whom were be-
ing held in front of the convicts, and
were forced to jump to the pavement,
leaving their guns in the tower.
The prisoners, still using the girl as
a protection, got in the buggy and
drove off across the prison farm. It
was a half-mile from the prison that
the three convicts were killed. R. J.
Ritchie, keeper of bloodhounds, mount-
ed, was the first to overtake them. An
expert cracksmen, he shot Reed in the
forehead as he looked back around the
body of Miss Foster. The shot barely
missed the girl's cheek, but was dead-
ly in its aim, and she and Reed fell
from the buggy together. Two more
shots in quick succession finished
Kuntz, who was already wounded, and
killed Lane. Ritchie was not even
Warden R. \V. Dick, with Paul H.
Jones, member of the prison board,
were out on the farm when the trouble
occurred. Deputy Warden E. M. Fry
was out in the lawn in front of the
prison. Seizing a gun from the guards
at the arsenal, he rushed to the prison
door at the first sound of shooting,
but, being warned by guards above
that the convicts themselves had
charge of the keys, with doors locked,
he ran around to the side entrance,
only to arrive after the convicts had
gone. During the time between the
going of the convicts and the arrival
of Frick from the inner entrance the
entire prison was open for all convicts
to pass out, but not another attempt
to escape was made. Several of the
convicts, in fact, assisted the officers
at critical periods.
Judge Thomas was here to confer
with a client, Frank Halkey,. charged
with murder. He was a former fed-
eral judge at Muskogee, former con-
gressman from Illinois, and a member
of the Oklahoma code Commission
which assisted in preparing the Har.
