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 | Many Reasons M that over 52,000 Durant Cars were sold and delivered last year lies in the fact that the M] car employs all the liner elements in motor transportation, abundant power when you ;Kj| need it, flexibility, beauty and convenience make the Durant the really fine motor car it M is.

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 the end. !
