The brick which he had removed were concealed under his bunk and the cavity in the wall, large enough for him to easily pass through, was covered with the back of one of his shirts, pasted on with soap. The hole was in a dark unfrequented corner of the jail, behind the radiator, and the cloth so nearly like the wall, it was hardly noticeable. A warrant was issued for the young man, and the sheriff started for him Monday morning. (25 May 1905)
