gnived as a Farmer.
The Brooklyn Eagle of rwt-nt lut?
contained thlsdispatchfrom Klverhead
Mass., with reference to Swindler Las-
telle, who is unpleasantly remembered
in this city:
"It became known here toiluy Dial
t'laiule Ft. I.ascelle, (lie notorious hII-

made a bold attempt to escape from tho
prison yesterday and nearly succeeded.
"The Suffolk county fair has been in
progress here and all the farmers have
v lulled the jail. Lasrelle took from he
f.veen the wiles of his shoe a piece of
. metal, which he ground to an edge on
the walls of his cell. With this he
hacked off his luxuriant side whiskers.
leaving a stubble growth such as is
characteristic of the visiting farmers.
Having beon allowed the run of the
jnil, he went Into the riflls of other
prisoners and took such pieces of Wear
ing apparel as would help his rustle
make-up, threatening the, other prison
ers with death If they exposed him be
fore he got out.
When Jailer Hafford admitted a big
crowd of farmers, Lascelle assumed a
shambling tiflk and mingled with
them. The visitors were let out one at
a time. Hufford looked at Lascelle
sharply, and the big door was slammed
and the bolts shot into their sockets
in a hurry.
"Lascelle said he was just seeing how
far he could carry a Joke. Now he is
hackled hand and foot, and denied all
privileges of the corridors."

LADIES' BOX CALF SHOES.
Our ladies' shoes for fall and winter
ear are something new. They are
made of a new lightweight material
called "Box Calf," and we haje them

soles, so they can be worn without
rubbers if necessary. Box calf will
not wet through and is besides, good
and serviceable. These shoes are made
with the new toe, which is very com
fortable as well a stylish. We have
these shoes in lace, exra high, for
skating purposes. 'e also carry a
full line of them for misses and chil
dren, made up with the same style or

Mrs. Westpfahl and McLaughlin Could
Not Furnish Security and Were
Sent to the County Jail.
Alderman C. C. Donovan gave Mrs.
William Wesipfahl and William Mc
Loughlln a hearing last night. The
evidence proved to him that they should
be held to answer In court and he bound
them, the woman in the sum of $1,000,
and her paramour in the sum of $500,
which neither could, furnish, and they
were sent back to the county jail. Mrs.
Westpfahl is charged with bigamy and
unlawful relations. McLoughlln Is not
married and was charged only with un
John Achter, of Hazletou, her first
husband, was present and was Bworn.
He testified that they were married at
Hazleton on December 30. 1877, by Rev.
K. A. Buuer, of that place, and he pro
duced his marriage certillcate to prove
it. He said they are not divorced yet,
but the proceedings are pending and
he hojies to secure release from the tie
that binds him to her before very long.
She deserted him five ir six years ago.
William Westpfahl, husband No. 2,
was sworn. He met her at a picnic at
Mountain Lake last summer and she
was introduced as Miss Elizabeth Early
to him. Her manner captivated him
and he asked her hand In marriage. She
gave him her two hands and professed
to love him deeply. On August 12 last
they were married by Rev. Willtum A.
Nordt, pastor of Hickory Street Pres
Matters went along happily for a few
Weeks. He brought her home to reside
over his household and care for the
children of his first wife. He never
suspected but that she meant to servo
him with absolute fidelity, until a
month ago. one evening he came home
and found her gone, with $40 of his
money. When he heard she was living
with McLoughlin in Green Ridge he
had warrants sworn out for their ar
rest. In looking through her trunk he
found papers showing that she had
been married in Hazleton, and as she
always led him to believe she was sin
gle, it occurred to him after he found
out she was married to Achter that
Achter might be alive, nnd he Investi
gated. In that way the Hazleton hus
band was brought here as a witness.
Mrs. Sarah Kane, of New York street,
was sworn as a witness. With her Mc
Loughlin and the woman boarded since
the latter left Westpfahl. The witness
testified that the defendants occupied
the same room In her house and she
took it for granted that they were man
There Was a, charge against West
pfahl that he assaulted and battered
her and threatened to kill her before
she left hlui. but It was dismissed by
the alderman, there being no evidence
to sustain It. Senator J. C. vaughau
appeared as uttorney for Westpfahl.
