A desperate attempt to escape was made by three prisoners confined in the Florence county, Wis., jail last week, but owing to the bravery of Deputy Sheriff Keyes, the effort proved only partially successful. Thos. Gallagher was shot and killed by the officer, while Frank Burke and Joseph Wylie managed to get away.
