STORY OF A WANDERER.
Rufus Meachan Goes Out into the
World and is Lost to His People.
A week or two ago the Record
printed an article about the disappear
ance of Minter Burns, how his father
and others tried to learn of his where
abouts’and of the report of his death
at Norfolk. Now we print another
story this week of the return home
of another wanderer, although Min
ter Burns has not yet returned home
his people kn<#v where he is.
Thirteen years ago Rufus Meacham
whose home then was in Baldwin
township, near the Orange county
line, made up his mind to go out in
to the world and make his fortune, as
the quiet life of a farmer boy was
too slow for him.
For six years his parents kept track
of him, then his letters ceased and his
whereabouts became unknown. In
fact he was given up as dead. Wed
nesday of last week Rufus returned
home to his aged mother, who is 83
years old, (his father, John Meach
am, having died about the first of last
January,) who had not heard a word
from her boy in seven years, and it
is possible she never would have heard
again from him if it had not been an

A few weeks ago John and" Solo
mon Lambe, of Siler City, went to
Florida and while there they visit
ed Tampa. On the street one day
they met Meacham and recognized
him. Rufus did not tarry long with
the two Chathamites and seemed in a
hurry to get away from them. On
their return home they, knowing the
Meacham family, reported to them
about seeing Rufus in Tampa.
I Rufus’ brother, at the old home
'place living with and taking care of
'his aged mother, wrote to Rufus and
I begged him to come hoifte, that his
! mother was old and f eeble and wanted
ito see him before she passed out. We
suppose Rufus could not stay away
any longer and decided to go back to
the old farm. So he took a midnight
train out of Tampa and came back
to Chatham county. When he arriv
ed at home his mother did not recog
nize him for some time, but after she
did there was one happy woman.
Rufus tells many wonderful stories
of his travels, the different countries
and peoples he has seen and the many
narrow escapes he has had. But he
is back home now and he says he is
going to stay with his mother until
