Tanner and Erwin Girl Plan
Escape Which Fails by
The mystery surrounding the disap
pearance of Willard K. Tanner from
the penitentiary September 29 was
cleared up with a vengeance at about
5 o'clock yesterday morning, anil the1
judgment of Superintendent Minto, who I
has contended that it was impossible '
for Tanner to have escaped from the'
ins itutiou, has been found good. 1
yesterday morning Tanner, aecom-'
pnnied by Hazel Erwin, who was con-i
victed with him for the murder of Roy I
Wallace in a Cortland rooming house
in 11112, entered the room in the wo-
H man's ward of the prison occupied by;

Hough this morning to be a young
American, to be an American of chnr-j

Dr. Hough also struck a popular key
with the students when he said in re

"Because," answered the other man,
I look out for the pennies."
, He worked so hard for his money
lie said that lie could not bear to
waste a cent of it. The saving of
even the penny made him (eel a free
man that if anything happened to
him he would neither have to beg
nor go to a charity institution.
Careful saving or thrift is one of
the best habits to form. Perhaps the
best because so many other good
habits and good traits follow in its
train. Once acquired it becomes a
permanent trait. It gives such a
feeling of security and independence.
The pennies added to maks dollars.
A man may work ever so fiard and
receive a good salary, bts unless
he saves the pennies he will not get
