Relatives and friends who once lived there had gone, or disowned hitm as worthless, and a fail ure. But the old weekly, with its neighborhood gossip of marriages, deaths, births, crops and sickness, brought him back again to memories of the old home town. Some day, the little weekly may draw him home. He will make a new start, and tfhe days of his wand ering Will be past.
