burrowed the money and i had to return

"Mrs. Groves, wife of the magistrate,

dreadfully worried and she
afraid it would throw him Into brain

borrowed it.
"Ho informed me that he had paid him
the money at t he magistrate's office, aud

had great confidence in Mr. Groves and
did not think anything like that would
happen. He told me that I should not lose
a cent, and said: Til bet $1 I will have
to pay tlie bond over again. It was a
very foolish trick for me to do to give
him the money. 1 bold Groves's receipt
for tlie $800 1 gave him.' That is all I
kuow about it. I hold the bond, and of
