Wrote She Had Changed
Her Boarding Place
Mrs. A. L. Larkin, former resident of
Portland and Corvallis, who escaped
from the state asylum for the insiine
Saturday night by picking the lock of a
window with a hairpin, was almost cap
tured this morning. When she depart
ed from the asylum she left a note say
ing that she had gone "for a walk"
and would return Sunday at 4 p. m.
she failed to return.
It now appears that soon after leav
ing the asylum she secured employment
at the Depit motel. Last night she ap
peared at the Southern Pacific depot
and filed a telegram to J. R. Leach at
Portland. The message said, "Please
send me SlO. I have changed my board
ing place. I went out by the win
dow." It was signed "Altha Lairkin."
she was recognized by the operator
at tho depot, and he notified the hos
pital authorities, who dispatched two
employes to the Depot hotel to bring
her back to the institution. When they
reached the hotel the woman was not
there. She is still at large.

raising story to a bald-headed man.
