Bert arrived at the town where he
had left him, to learn that some rela
tive had come after Newton, had set
tled the alleged theft and had taken
Newton away with him.
fOne day, as Bert and Eva were in
their little store, in walked a visitor.
"Newton!" cried Bert in extrava
gant delight. It was his old friend,
but neatly dressed and showing signs
of sure prosperity.

"Newman and that exactly ex
presses it; new-man, see? And this is
the dear sister you told me about?"
A dear brother Newman became to
Bert soon thereafter. The wanderer
had been taken back by his grand
father, life was all before him, bright,
earnest, hopetul, and he asked Eva to
share it with him.
