to the Lacrosse boy.s, who were responsible for tlie appearance of the

it should have hiren, considering the

fact   is lo be regretted. In    Mieir

iravcllod on toot io Proctor, As ho
dnt not care io risk conversation
with any one he kepi away from all

After reaching Mie shore of the

When Constable Voung arrived with

In reply to questions hv the wai
■ len and tb,- reporter, he told !>:,-
storv tersely, ami evidenth frankly,
He said:
"1 got out bv unlocking the d .-is
wiih keys I made myself. I got a

Chinese shack tlown below ibe track.
I stayed in town four davs. I got
othei clothes and blankets ami a gun

im- 1 knew where ihev were, Ai
ihe end of four days I started out
tor Proctor at night. I walked thc
whole wav. generally on lhc railway
.rack. I bad a pre My bard time.
I  didn't carry anything to cat. 1
• h.ii chickens.
"1 threw un' keys awa) in the

I    know       where   I   lefl   nu      clothes.
I haw told Mr. Young.' You (to
Mie warden) can pnsllt gi t them
"1 made a raft and rigged up a
blanket for a sail, 'i'he steamer
passed near me, and llie people ou
iHiard saw me. Alter I got lo the
otbei side l tramped again, from
I.a France down to near the Landing,
lhen I struck Inlo Creslon.
"Mr. W Ison caught mo there Sunda) lie walked up behind me. I
hail lbe gun hut  I did not  try to use
II 1 didn't want lu make bad
"I am sorry I made the break. I'd
rather pm in an extra mouth here
than live ihai fortnight ovei again.
I suppose I'll have hi stand worse
When he was told Mial in six weeks
hv would have been liberated on ticket ol leave, .(ohanscn shook his
head very sorrowfully, and remarked:     "I guess I have'made a pretty
had break."
The resl of the story was told by
the warden as lollows: "Delaney,
that's Ihe name be goes under here,
is a very clever man, ami a model
prisoner He is a Norwegian, and
can speak four dllferenl languages
He is skilled in many trades ami
generally a handy man. He was
employed here as cook. Ile never
gave any trouble. Me was always
inielligciii and obedient. Me was
allowed to go out in thc morning to
get bis own wood
"I have learned since ihat lie was
supplied from outside wnh nearly
everything he wanted, except whiskey. Me gut opium regularly, and
finally lie had to have medical attention. Then Ite asked for a heavier and warmer coat and was given
one. Me still wore the regular corduroy trousers.
"lie must bave had a good many
confederates on the outside for he
was well supplied with means to get
out, and to hub?, first, and Mhmi get
away without detection alter be was
out. We may tve able to locate some
of Mie people that helped him.
"I'm sorry thai lho impression got abroad that prison officials
were remiss in their duties. I
went to Um provincial police office
within three minutes of the discovery
of the escape, and nolilied the outside guard at once. I also gol word
to chief .larvis at once.
"I wish to say that Chief .larvis

So much is said about  lhe duties of
children ihat their rights are overlooked. Their duties are often
strictly enforced upon them, but iheir
rights Impicuidy Ignored; This Is
partly on account of Ignorance, hut
chiefly because of a lack of thought.
Most parents desire ibe highest good
of their children, and are willing to
mavc any reasonable sacrifice for
litem, but pay little attention lo
their rights, if they recognize them
as their rights at all. No one would
deny to children their right to such
support ■ and education as their parents are able lo give them, Bul
beyond this very generai admission
nol many recognize any definite obligation.
