!. Simply Lost his Nerve.
Why did John FPairey leave home
in this mysterious wvay? Hie does not
know. lie simply 'says lhe got rattled.
He nowv tells that when he worked
on his trial balance in Septnimber that
first it was $100 out. Hie reported this
to President Moss, b)ut extiected to
get it straightened out promptly.
Then, he figured and the more lhe
figured the worse it got until it round
ea up $10,000. lie could not find
the trouble, lie 'worked until his
head wa's dizzy and then thought how
he could get away. He wvent to New
York without telling any one a word
of his tronbles. As ho got on th
train for Chicago he mailed thre
letters telling of his troibles and as
suring all of his honesty.
That wa.s the first any one knew o
his leaving Orangebt4rg' for mon
thal brief rest. The matter create<
i sensation, but throughout the week
of spetiltion and excitement thor
was ne10ve1r it sugestionl that Joh1
l0airey ha1d stolen a cent from th
Edisto Hank. If lie really had want
ed to take anything he could hav
taken. the $28,000 in cash that wa
inl the bank vaults and applied th
time lock and as cashier he migh
have used the balances in Philadel
phiia and New York, but such a thinj
never entered his mind. His sola
thought was to get away and not t<
b)e recognized. Ie says he simpl:
became rattled and could think o:
nothing more than the unbalance(
books and the folks lie left behind.
