Sabol, of the Rockview detail State
police, after he had broken into the
bungalow of George Hazel, on Spring
creek, and cooked himself a good
meal from provisions found in the
camp. Following his arrest he
confessed to having broken into the
Dale Summit school house, on Sat-

forcing an entrance into the Shiloh

spent the night.
“Dr.” Powers, as he gave his
name, is originally from York coun-

he drifted to Indiana county where
he drove a team in a lumber camp.
While there he was arrested and
convicted of larceny, and was sent
to the penitentiary for one to two
years. He was transferred to
Rockview and released on parole
about the middle of September, 1921.
A month later he reappeared in the
vicinity of the Rockview institution
carrying a double-barrelled shot-gun,
and authorities there jumped to the
conclusion that he was planning the
escape of some of the prisoners but

in the borough lockup. One of

a cell and during the evening Kling-

regular where he could get a drink.
The latter told him todrink out of
the tank and the man attempted to
climb up and do so. But in his ef-
fort he tore the tank loose from the
wall and broke the pipe with the
result that the water shot up in a
stream and cascaded down on his
head. Promptly he set up a howl
which aroused the entire neighbor-
hood but it was some time before a
policeman could be found and a key
secured to enter the lockup and turn
off the water. In the meantime the
wayfarer was soaked to the skin and
