Charles Edwin Burdette, brother of "Bob" Burdette, the hum orist, has been vindicated after thirty years, of any blame in connec tion with the disappearance of 2-jW from a registered letter package sent out by the Peoria postofflce, of which he was registry clerk. The mystery which has been a cloud on Burdette'a life in Peoria, his home town, and which turned many of his old friends against htm. was solved by an accident. The $3500 disappeared after II was put In 'twelve registered letters by John Oomstock. The evidence was all against young Burdette, and as the first Investigation had been made Comstock demanded that Gen, D. W, Magee, veteran of the civil war and pout njas tor at Feoria, who died last O L JT CLOTHE S,.-f , SXfiQ BBS2S52 year, immediately discharge the reg istry clerk. Comstock carried the matter to Washington and an inspector came down from Chicago to make a full re port. He' recommended that Burdette be discharged, but the postmaster re fused to discharge him, and Burdette continued as registry clerk. Burdette was working to get money to study for the ministry. A few years after the Comstock money was missed he left the postofflce and went to Brown university, then to Newton academy and when he was ordained as a minis ter was assigned as a missionary to Assam, India. He now has a pastor ate at Springfield, Mass. All this time he prayed that in some way the mystery of the missing inoney might be cleared up for his own vindication. Into the postal repair shop at San Francisco a few weeks ago an old battel ed sack was sen t to be patched. It was a veteran and to repair it meant practically to make a new sacli The first man to Inspect the sack decided it needed a new bottom, and with a knife he ripped the leather bottom. There he saw above it a big manlla envelope, caught by the corne which served ' practically as a false bottom. He opened the envelope and found It to contain the twelve missing Corn- stock letters and $3,&00 which had be-m wandering about the country for thirty years. When the finding of the money was reported to the; Peoria postofflce, friends telegraphed to Mr. nurdette that the cloud hanging over him so long had been dispelled.
