Not Quite Hanged

Grand Forks, D.T., Jan 29.—A jail delivery took place here about 12 o'clock last night. A prisoner who was confined there, and whose time had expired, had arranged to be on hand with a team. A wrench was constructed of hard wood, and nuts which held the staples were taken off . They were two wheat thieves, one horse thief, and one pickpocket. The sheriff had gone to New York. No clue to the fugitives has yet been discovered.
