NOTED HORSE THIEF BREAKS JAIL
AND IS NOW AT LARGE
T H Griffith, who was on February 8th arrested at Piedmont by E B Kinney, B&O special officer and turned over to the Taylor county authorities, a few days ago, broke jail and is at large yet. The special charge against Griffith in the case is horse stealing. He, as is claimed, about a year ago stole a horse from A Boylen of Taylor county. Later he was arrested, and while in charge of A Boylen and his brother L D Boylen, over night, in Preston county where he had been captured, while the guards were asleep at night, though handcuffed, took two watches and other things from their persons and escaped, and remained free until taken over by Kinney. On the 28th of February he escaped from the jail at Grafton by sawing the bars to his cell and took three other prisoners with him when he left the bastille. Griffith is a powerful man, being 6ft 8 in in height, weighing 247 pounds, and well developed and is 34 years old. He is said to be an all around bad man, having three wives, one in Grafton, one in Oakland and one of unknown address. A reward of $100 is posted against him in Randolph county, and he is charged with the theft of a diamond ring valued at $300, and a warrant and reward has been issued at Grafton for his arrest. He was at one time a brakeman on both the third and fourth divisions of the B&O railroad, and spent some time in Keyser.
At one of the boarding houses in Keyser this morning there was a lateness with breakfast all because the cook was missing. After investigating, it was learned that a young man was seen to drive away with the girl some time about the middle of the night. She had been married before and there was some fear that the husband would pursue, thus the hurry. Her washing was still on the line and she simply rolled it up in a half dry condition, thinking that they would drive so fast that it would dry on the way. No one seems to know what direction the pair went, but it is supposed that the young man knows where he is going with what he got.

Monday night the Masonic Fraternity of Cumberland tendered to Mr and Mrs Thomas Footer a big reception on occasion of the 47th anniversary of their marriage. Mr Footer is one of Cumberland's most honored and progressive citizens. He interests himself in every progressive matter, taking the lead in every industrial movement, and individually he has established the biggest industry in the way of a drying and cleaning establishment in the world. Misses Margaret and Joretha Liller of Keyser took an active part. The Cumberland news of the 18th says: "The address of Captain Hammond was followed by a pleasing entertainment by Miss Liller of Keyser, W Va, assisted by her sister, Miss Margaret. Miss Liller delighted the audience with her clever character impersonations, especially those on children, and she was heartily applauded."
