very mischievous. His pranks some
times brought him to disgrace at
school, but as Fred was a general
favorite he finished the term all right
and was graduated with honors.

hopes and high aspirations, and while
there made some brilliant successes;!
but. alas! there was to be a fall. He

be assured. He accordingly induced
T^jed to forge a cb6ck with his fath

his ?first act of crime.
They then went to New York,
. where their money was speedily die- 'Z-,
posed of. and Dob. seeing that Fred . _

?bowed a marked preference fo*~Fred
from the .first and soon became as
much, attached to him as he was to
months and then there was a quiet
wedding at Aftce|s home. Their
honeymoon was spent In making a
tour of the States, but alas, his hap

While stopping at one of the prin

His kind heart forgave her many

read. "Dear Fred? You know \ the
