news' This letter just came. My
brother, Dan he is coming home!"

the letter she placed before him. His
dazed brain could scarcely take in its
contents. It told-ofa partner mys
teriously disappeared, of vain search.
It told how Moffat, in order to sur
prise him had prompted the new
claim in Davis' name, and in his hot
haste Devis had not paused to ascer
tain that fact. The writer feared. that
some enenry had killed Davis, for his
own life had been attempted, but the
bullet had glanced from a bone, mere
ly stunning him. So, the headlines
Davis had seen in the newspaper had
alluded to some other crime.
Amid his relief, his joy at learn
ing that he was not a murderer, Greg
Davis sank to his knees in grateful
prayer. Then came a confession to Qj)
the amazed girl at his side.
"How you have suffered!" breathed
the gentle-hearted Alma, pitying,
and out of that pity grew love, and
when Dan Moffet came home it was
to greet a prospective brother-in-law.
