wife heard bad news. Gene had left
his address with his brother Jim, and
now, at the end of two weeks, Jim
had sent a letter in order that Gene
might know whether Hattle Brown's

about Lottie Kemple which he had

Lottie had said once that the man
who tried to "get shet" of her would

done that. He wondered what he had
to dread? After the letter's arrival,
he began to hurry down the river.
