One paragraph seems to the attorney

GUARD WAS GUILTY
Some Note Tdken in a rief Visi to

A hurried visit to the Marion Farms
Hospital this morning found it In ex-
Cellent sanitary condition. The yards
were swept clean, the hospital newly
whitewashed, which made it look
clean and bright, the sheets, pillow
cases and bed clothing clean and ev-
erything, even to the kitchen present-
ed an Inviting lbok.
At present there are seven female
and 55 male prisoners and only one of
that number In bed. The others are
at work according to their strength.
We heard the story of the escape of
'the prisoners the other night and un-
questonably the guard. who Is now in
Jail, was respoaslble for the escape and
It was done by preconcerted confer-
ences. Not only were several of the
prisoners permitted to write letters In
the dining room. which in contrary to
the rules, but the guard permitted the
Myers negro to go into the kitchen
and pretend to grind coffee and clean
up, which was no part of his work. It
was through the kitchen the convicts
made their escape, cutting a hole in
th" floor. That it was a concocted
pl.n and connived at by the guard,
is show* by the fact that the escapes
had beep tampering with the bars in
the kitchen window, as the window
frames were split so as to loosen the
bars and the cracks filled In with
dough to hide the work.

There is no news from the escaped
convicts, except that one of them lost
a shoe in the swamp about 30 miles
southeast of Ocala, which Captain.
Hewitt has to present as evidence.
The convict, who was sick In bed,
saw all the maneuvers that led to the
escape, and said the guard certainly
assisted In the escape, for after the
sick man told him they had gone thru
the window, he refused to sound the
electric alarm bell, provided for a case
