his face aged and hardened, his cloth

stories conflicting stories of his wan

up the mystery which lias enveloped
i the strange case for nearly four years.

that she is dead would be welcome af

received handbills offering rewards for

they fled until 3 o'clock yesterday af

they never were heard of definitely.
