The rest Is toi pitiful to dwell upon.
Cummings, once a trusted clerk in the

a boy of nineteen. Omimings bad
spent bis, the lion's share of the money

had borne the burden. Cnmmings left
the etlice with the promise of a small
stipend. It was thought better to keep
him from harm lest he betray the
boy he had led into error.
