After chasing several persons, he entered the room of Solomon Davis on the second floor, No. 1225 North Tenth street, and attacked him.

They have a colored prisoner in the Howard county jail who is equal to the celebrated Davenport brothers. He is handcuffed and chained every night, but upon opening the jail door in the morning he is found walking around, free of chains and bracelets. The Fayette folks are afraid he will walk off with the jail some night, and they don't know what to do about it.
