ESCAPE FROM GAOL.
[PflB Press Association Copyright.]
ADELAIDE, October 11. During a Salvation Army service in the gaol three desperate criminals knocked down a warder in the gaol yard, bound and gagged him, and then locked him in a cell. They then treated the prisoners in similar fashion, and afterwards, with a rope taken from the hammocks and a bucket handle, by which they fastened the rope to the wall, they scaled it. Over an hour elapsed before the gaol officials discovered what had been done to the warder. The offenders got clear away.
