FERGUSON'S ACTION PECULIAR. When Charles Ferguson returned home last Tuesday after an absence of 32 years and found that his wife was still alive, but had married again, had four children and her second husband was dead, it naturally was a big surprise to him. After not seeing his wife for so long a time one would think he would take great pleasure in telling of his life and whereabouts for the past third of a century. But instead, he walked into .the house as cool as a cucumber, told who he was, ate dinner, for there were several friends visiting Mrs. Willis at the time, did not speak fifty words, and inquired where her son was. Ha Cli not stay in the house two hours. Then he took the train to Albert, a small postotiice in Wright ' township, where his son resides on a farm, and nothing has been heard of him since. One who has read the story would think he is an impostor, but nevertheless he is Charles Ferguson, who mysteriously disappeared over X2 years ago. He returns to his son, whom he left when a baby, 1 year and 9 months old. Now he finds a married man and family. The only thing that this eccentric man said was that he had acquired considerable lumber land in the state of Washington and that he never married after he left his wife. of
