El PLOTS OF PRISONERS. HOW THE CONVICTS Hi AUBURN PRISON MANE A PLAN TO ESCAPE. Bolts and bars and walls built to re slat the teeth of time, are not always sufficient to restrain the convicts in the State prison at Auburn. Confinement seems to sharpen the wits of the prison ere, and not only - have they been, known to devise suocessftil plans to es cape, but to invent most ingenious , ap pliances and machinery. .Old attaches' .' of the prison could tell stories of the achievements of .' convicts that would - read Like fables, and yet be as true as sacred writ. Every morning the con tractor drives in through the north gate, and receiving his load of three or fonr barrels at the kitchen', drives out again. A convict several years ago, thOught he saw in the : ewill=barrel a means of escape, and he proceeded to put his idea into operation. He en veloped his head in cloths and got into a barrel of liquid swill. The gate-keep er is provided with a long iron rod, and is required . to probe or examine every load, no matter_ what it may be, that leaves the prison. When the wagon reached the gate the keeper ran the rod into the barrel in which the convict was concealed. It struck an obstruction, and he plunged it in again with con siderable force. He was amazed to see a filthy object emerge from the swill and utter amuffied cry of pain. It. did not take the keeper long, howeyer, to determine that it was n convict attempt ing to escape. Theclever plot of the prisoner created a great deal' of com ment at the time. A prisoner owe disappeared, and no trace of him could be found. The officers =searched for a week without avail. Finally, after all efforts had been given up. the keeper of the tailor shop one day instructed his men to remove the pieces of cloth, of which there was a great quantity, • from beneath the cutting-bench. The bench was entirely closed, with the ex xeption of a small aperture into , which the odds and ends were thrown, and while the pieciii were being taken out, the missing convict was unearthed. The man had been waiting for an op portunity to get outside the walls, but . lie waited one day too many it proved. He had teen fed regularly by other con • victs, who brought him food in their pockets from the mess-room. Three or four years ago, when the prison was crowded with 1,500 convicts, 'asreat many slept is a large! room in the top of the main building, kno7n as the 'old hospital' These men imagined that liberty was within their reach ) and they made -an attempt to effect j their escape. They cut their way through the wood-work to the roof, and only the tin covering remained to 'be removed. . The night was appointed for the. de livery, but when the men put their heads through the opening, they were confrented with a row of revolvers in the hands of officers. Some - oue had revealed the scheme, and the author s ities were forewarned. Had this plan been successful, the population of the prison would have been, decreased some 206. Five years ago, a convict employ ed in the tool-shop, which is no longer operated, made a bold venture. The tools were placed in boxes some 31 feet wide, and 20 inches deep. The man attached cleats and a button to one of the boards comprising i the cover in such a way that he'could shut himself- in. To conceal the deception, he drove heads of nails into the board so that it looked as if it was nailed down. The contractors had another shop in what 1 is known as 'Hackey,' in the northwes tern part of the city, whither all tools were taken before being shipped. The convict ensconced himself in his narrow, quarters, and the box was loaded on n wagon with a number of others. He , waited until he thciught the prison had been left behind, and then raised the cover to survey his surroundings. He was observed by the driver, a young luau, who gave a frightened yell and jumped from the wagon. A guard hap pew& to be in a grocery store in front of which the convict made his appear ance, and he caught a glimpse of 'the head in the box. The escaping prsoner lebognized him, and leaping from the.wagon, ran as fast as his legs would carry him. The guard followed, and, as'the fugitive would- not stop in response to repeated commands, fired a ball into his leg, which put an end to the chase. Citizens are employed in the prison shops-in numbers, and they pass in and out without any questions being asked. A convict once embraced the opportn uity that this practice affords. He se cured a pair of overalls and a blouse, and, shouldering a vise, walked past the guards. When he reached the street he threw down the vise and made for the country. Slipping out of the ranks is one of the practices of convicts as the preliminary step to an escape. - One cold Winter's morning, while it was still dark, two convicts left their places in the line. They had previous ly obtained a long piece of wire, and. attacticing a hook to one end, they, tore tip their bed-clothing, and wound it tightly about it. This - made a stiff rope, and, reaching it up, they caught . the book on the bars of the window in ~: the story above. They climbed up from window to window. until they reached the roof, from which they ex _ pected to descend to a low side wall and drop to the ground. Their absence had been discovered, however, and just as they were descending they were de tected by the officers who were looking for them. The escape of 'By' Day was planned. He feigned sickness, and was left in his cell. When the keeper shook the cell-door at night, Day did rot res pond. Instead of compelling the man to answer, as he should have done. be looked through the • grated-door, and saw a form lying in bed with a news paper over the head. He thought Day was sleeping, and supposed the paper was to prevent his being disturbed by flies. The next morning a dummy stuffed with straw was found in Day's cot, but 'By' . had disappeared. He had released himself from; his cell With a false key, and, getting noon the roof, had gone to the ground. He was after ward ree.,aptnied. The 'wheel-house' is the place where Dan Noble, Dan Kelly, and the rest of the famous gang made their egress. -It is where the' water from the Owasco River enters the prison to supply power. A convict will endure., the greatest suffering and privation to secure his liberty. A man from Jeffersdn county, crowded under a floor and hid in a pit partly filled with Water. There he lay, wet to the skin, during one freezing cold day, and at night his hopes were blasted by the appearance of officers with lanterns. One prisotier bid himself in the top of a large pigeon house, but his place of concealthent was discovered before he could scale the walls under cover of darkness. It is, necessary to watch thepen on the up. peritiere of both wings very closely. The viol. of the main building has_ sp- perently. been the most popular avenue of escape ever since the prison 'was built. From it the north wall is nanny reached by taking the rope from the flag staff, and the passage from that point to the ground is an easy one. The halyards have been frequently cut from the pole. If a prisoner is mii!ting, the officers at once proceed to the fo;of, and the chances are good. that he : will be found lying in , the gutter or behind a chimney waiting for an opportunity to descend. It would be vain to at tempt to say how many convicts Nape beenpaught on the roof, but the num bers is certainly very large. • ..If an the tools and appliances used by prisoners in attempting or accomplith ing escapes had been saved a museum might be established. How the con victs obtain these tools is a question easily answered. They make them. Instruments weighing as much as 50 pounds have been made under the very eyes of the officers, and they were none the wiser for it. If a man is employed about iron-working machinery, he will find time to manufacture jacks, jimmies, levers, bars, . keys, and other imple ments. Very often these tools are the finest specimens of work manship, and any artisan might be proud to own them as his handiwork. Complete burglars kits, have been mannlacturedin the pri'son and smug- gledimtside to do service in 'cracking' banks. Not long ago an attempt - was made by a 'long-terin man' to escape in broad daylight. He made a 'jack'.and a 'jimmy,' and with them hoped toile. ,cure bjs liberty. But for the breaking of th'e jimmy he would undonbtedly Lave 'been successful. Ho concealed his fools in his bed, and committed come offense so as to be locked in on the day that he expected to set himself free. While the gdard was in another part of the Wing, he sprung the bolt in the door of his cell with the jimmy, and stepped into the corridor. His next move as to make an attack on the bars of a w'ndow. The man set to work and I the barks began to spread, but his haste canoed the failure of his plan. A Bud den wrench caused the bolt to snap iu 'twain. , The noise attracted the guard, who 'inspected something wrong, and ran in the tlir•ection of the sound. The convict could not reach his cell quickly enough to avoid detection, and he paid the penalty of his effort -to 'beat' the prison. One generous-hearted convict' prc- . posed to liberate half the pnsonerp in the institution. He procured apiece of gas-pipl, and from it made a key to_fli the locks of the, cell doors„ had plannea,to spring the jever of his cell with a jimmy,' thus releasing hiMself, and to unlock as many doors as he could with the key before he was dis covered. Then he anticipated leading the men against the guards and fight- big his way to libertY. The key was found in the possession of the sanguine prisoner before he had an opportunity to use it. In the office of 'the Agent and Warden are two jimmies remark able for their fine construction.' ,The handles, which can be 'detached, are turned in! fanciful shape, and - to any burglar the tools would he a rare prize. Desperate means are no infrequently resorted to in attempting escape. Several times fire basbroken out in the prison, and has been found to be the work of convicts.. Thera is a fire bri gade composed of picked men, who are supposed to be trustworthy; but it has! been shown that they coLnot be lied upon. At nearly every fire inside i the walls the prisoners have cut the, hose and done everything in their powei to advance the ilamei; in the vain hope that the whole institution would burn down. Impossible stories are, told of escapes. It used to be . I related thatca desperate criminal serving a life sen tence feigned death so successfully that he was put in a coffin, the• bottom of which had previously been bored fall of holes to admit aic. The man, as the story 'went, was carried out and de livered over to friends, who carried him away to freedom. The most despised creature in the pitison is a 'squealer,' as the convicts term a prisoner'who learns of plans to escape and reveals them. If be is known to be a talebearer, he is not only ostracized by the others; but life 'is made as miseerable for him as possible. I. I.

Ozone is therm tiseptie principle of ev_ ry substance. and possesses the power to preserve animal and vegetable structures from decay. There is nothing en the fate of the earth/iota-a to deceiver spoil which OZONE, the new Pre:emotive, not preserve for all time in a perfectly fresh and palatable condition. The value of OZONE as naturalpreserver has been 'known to our abler chemists foryearkbut until now no means of producing it in a practical, inexpensive, and simple manner have been discovered. -'l, ' / • .1 Microscopic obsrvations, prove th at decay is due to septic matter. or minute germs that develop and feed upon ' animal and vegetable structures. OZONE, applied by the Prentiss method, seizes and destroys these germs at once, and thus preserves. AS our (aces in Cincinnati can be been almost every article that can be thought of preserved by this process and every visitor is wel cothe to come in, taste, Smell, take away with him,_and test in every way the merits of OZONE as a preservative. We will also preserve, free of charge, any article that is brought or sent prepaid.: - to us, and return it todbe sender, for him to keep and test. i EaCi3can be treated at a cost of less than one dollar a thousand dozen, and be kept in as ordi-' nary room sit months or more, thoroughly preserved, the yolk held in its normal condi tion, and the eggs as fresh and perfect as on the day they were treated, and will sell as strictly ~.cholce." The advantage in preserving eggs is readily meth; there are seasons when they can be bought sor &or 10 cents a dozen, and by holding them can be sold for-an advance of from one hun dred to thred hundred per cent. One man with this method can preserve 5,000 dozen a day. FRUITS may be permitted to ripen In their native cirmate, and can be transported to any_ 4 part of the world. The juice expressed from fruits can be held for an indefinite pe riod without fermentation—hence the great value of this process for producing a temperance beverage. j Milk and cider can be held perfectly sweet any length of time. . enbe kept for anindeli:ite period! in:eir natural retaining l EaifiAßLE3 tleirolvortreiti4rpgesssanihexpe • All grain, dour, meal, etc., are held In their normal condition. , . • FRESH MKAII such as beef, mutton, veal, pork, poultry, game,- fish, preserved by 4 this method, can be shipped' to Europe, subjected to atmospheric changes, and return to this country in a state of perfect preservation.• , • . • BUTTZR - AFTER BRYAZB I 2 Dead human bodies, treated before decompositicin seta in, can be held ins natural condition for weeks. without puncturing the 'skin or mutilating the body in any way.
