The Condemned Prisoner Again Tries
to Take His Life. A New
and Novel Route!
Fines Brock who languishes
behind tho bars in tho Tom Green
county jail condemned to
die on tho scaffold made a
third unsuccessful attempt last
Wednesday afternoon to relieve
the jailer of the task that awaits
him in the event tho vordict of
tho jury in tho caso is affirmed by
tho higher courts.
About a week ago Brock used
Iub blanket with which to con-
struct a rope to hang himself
but failed in tho attempt and at
night of tho same day made a
second effort this timo eating
a part of tho glass globo of an in-
candescent light. Ho succeeded
in swallowing the glass but for-
tunately possessed good digestive
organs and survived tho attompt
with but little incovonience.
It iB customary for tho prison-
ers ot tho jail to undress during
tho heat of tho day a priyilogo
accorded by tho jailer in his de-
sire to promote their comfort and
Wednesday afternoon about 5
o'clock Mr. Henry Itunyon wont
up stairs to notify the prisoners
to dreBS and proparo for the ar-
rival of the Salvation Army which
was expected in a short timo to
conduct religious services in the
jail. On reaching tho coll ho
found Brock making the third at-
tempt to take his lifo. This timo
ho adopted a now p'an of proceed-
uro and had pressed into service
an article of clothing peculiarly
adapted bo as to make possiblo its
ubo and when discovered had one
leg of his underwear tied abovo
wob standing on an iron lover used
in fastening tho door and engag-
ed in tvinK tho other leg of tho
garment around his neck. Young
Mr. llunyon immediately notineti
his lather and tno prisoner was

fect hifa prearranged ulans.

understand that he has become i
reconciled and expressed himself
Thursday as feeling much better!
and possessed with a desire to livo

published report that the Inter-
national and Groat Northern Iiob
under consideration tho proposi-
tion to extend its Georgetown
branch north from that place to
Florence in the northern part of
Williamson county a distanco of
about twenty miles was read horo
with much interest. It is tho
opinion that the proposed exten-
sion would not stop at Floronco
but would bo continued north-
ward to a connection with tho
San Angolo branch of tho Gulf
Colorado and Santa Fo.
It is said that tho Iternational
and Great Northern haB for some
time contemplated securing a di-
rect outlet to tho north west and
it is not improbable that tho ex-
tension of tlio Georgetown branch
is to servo for this purpose. It
has been suggested that tho ex-
tension would open up a splendid
torrltory if built northward to a
connection with tho Fort Worth
and Denver at Vernon or Quanoh.
