Thirty-seven years ago James Vermillion sent his son George to the pasture for the cows. A few days since George returned to his father's house at Lower Hill, Ill., minus the cows, but possessed of title deeds to a large cattle ranch in Colorado. The son had been dead to his parents all these years, and, though he went away a youth in his teens, he returned a gray and grizzled man of mature years. The fatted calf was killed and there was great rejoicing over the son that was lost but is found.
