up all hope when I read of ao many
people helng cured by Plant Juice. I
Immediately purrhaaed a hattla. I
hava been treated by many phyel-

without the slightest benefit. hot I
can candidly aay that tha flrat half

phenomenal waa It that 1 did not hava

"Thompaon had been drinking pret-

tarted In again that morning" Mr.
Gordon aald. "Ha talked about a
great many thlnga and aeemed to have
a large fund of coin. I wondered
what hla line of buslneaa waa and
"Ha waited for a long time before
he anawered and then he aald: 'My

wait before the can were ready and

Howard Harnum the attendant un-
dar arreat la a man of excellent repu-
tation. Hla cloee friend are strong
In their belief that he did not aid in
Thaw' escape. He la about S7 years
old and for twenty years haa been
employed at the hospital wher he waa
looked upon aa one of thn most trust-
worthy men In the Institution.
Barnum had not been particularly
friendly with Thaw. In fact he ap-
peared to dlallke him. He told friends
on more than one occaalon "Thaw
makea trouble for u and keeps the
place In a turmoil."
Km-upe Not Kapmtmt.
Thaw'a escape waa aided by the
fact that he haa constantly declared
thai he would not accept freedom un-
less It came by legal proves. The
hospital authorltlea aa a reault had
given him Hbertlea which other prta-
onera did not enjoy. He waa regarded
aa a "truaty" for some time. The

Jury which sent him here acquitted
him of the murder of Stanford Whlto
on the grounds that caused hi Incur"
ceratlnn in the hoapltal for the crim-
inal Inaane that of Insanity. Hence
he rould not be brought back to New
York on the murder charge. Ha could
