������There never was a woman - like
."Warj^.net Jackson,"'said t Ije Minister's
Wife to Mk- .Minister as she lu-ii-lied a
fliitT oil" hi.s coat, and saw liim oil* lo hik
���laiochial calls. "Tliere she1 pic's now,
and I'll he bound she has something
\/ ��� nice   in   that   basket   for   some   poor
creature." ' '
The  Minister put,   on   his   hat,' and
stepped mil.
"] never meet her," belaid thoughtfully, "hut Shell vve have  so few  poor
a in fun* parish."
"She mostly -j-ni's to the .South   Side,
.-inioiif^     the    teiienii'iiis,    they   say,"
responded the f^ood wife.
, Miss .Margai el, came swiftly past  the
door, holdiiiK her basket with aiiMon.s
,   care.    It might have contained a   jolh*"*
sc.-ircely   still",   or a   wavering   blanc-
man<jc, or  a   tiowl   of   chicken' bio'lh
1    ,       that   was   a   tlifle   over     full.   '  Miss
Maifjaret was a very little   woman,   in
.-. pi im  alpaca  (--own,  and   low-heeled
hoots   that   were  carefully   oiled,   not
polished.     Her   bonnet  was of   black
silk, drawn   smoothly   ovei1   a   quaint
cottage shape,  and   run  on'an   elastic
'   ,,    aiound its brim was an  antiipie   black"
lace veil, with silk flowers, vv Inch .some-
t inie.s (dmng    down   at   oir:  side, 'and
1      sometimes was run evenly on its drawstring and feli'over her little pule   f.-ic-e
like a valance.    Miss Margaret woi e   a
shawl in'wintei'and ;i black  silk   cape
in warm   weathei.    When   it  stormed
'"       she did not go out.   She never -shopped
in the neighborhood,  iind   the  impression    w;is   that   she   laid    in    supplies
wholesjile, for she   never  received   the
usual daily t-.iIN 01" butcher, grocer mid
baker.    Her neighbor.- were not of the
gossipy class, and  she   lived   nil  alone
and liniuok'sted in the queer  house  of
'        her aiicesldii-s, pi estiuiably comfortably
oil* and  desiring  ei.tiie  privacy.    The
blinds   were   never  raised   behind   the
Spotless windows, and the small timings
of sheer inn-ilin  lit transom   and   sidelights of  the   hall   doors   were  always
e.\quisitely w bite and   fresh',   and   also
., opaque.  ���
Years   ago  people  had   called   upon
her,    tint   she   never   answered    their
rings, and when tiiev asked,her to   tea
oi* dinner or , eve dug,   she   always   de-
'   cliued with a decided " Thank you. but'
.1 never i-are lo go nut." - Who lirst discovered that Miss Marg.-neL went daily
to   visit    the   pool,   and   carried   them
dainties and nourishment  of   her  own
,conking, no one seemed   to   i enieniliei*.
li was a   ti-adition   of   decades   back,
livery fine'day she'went out   vvitli   her
carelully held basket or ne.ifiy pinched
'paper bag.    People had smiled   at   her
\v hen she had said regretfully :
���-��� " Theie is a poor woman who   wants
dripping, and, >*ou know, thai is something I seldom have." . And a mother
of sons, who loved'fnll ni.'.iN and were
largely carnivorous, had said, half
jesting, "I'll give yon lots of it. When
hliall I send it over to you ?"'
Miss Margaret had at iirst demurred
primly,' but finally consented to rob the
plenteous store of the hoiise-inollier,
only on condition that she was allowed
to come for it herself. She c;uiie every
Satnrday' morning, , stejiping lightly
and daintily, and carrying in hei
basket a rare old china iio.vl, badly
chipped and cracked, bill genteel, even
in 1 uiu. Other neighbors often, laughingly, gave her little donations, a half-
used skii-t. a half-eaten loaf, a' jai* of
preserve, which she always said
quaintly was exactly wlial'so.un.1 woman
or mail or child would he so glad to
.1 re.'dive. People diumored her lil tie7
original way of dispensing her
chin itiis, and collect01 s who rang in
'vain at her door turned away wit 11 a
smile and saiil. "Miss Margaret has a
fancy to give her alms dii ectly. Well,
she's .1 good soul."    '
For twenty years at least had the
little lady in I iiesainegovv 11 and bonnetc
(so'l'ar .-is casual observance could tell)
gone out on her quiet errands of love
and mercy. Once every qu.titer she
ton!; lhe train and went across to the
, bus.neSs pai t of t he city, and 4 idled at
ji savings bank, making out a cheque
in favor of herself, and carefully
pocketing a very small roll of bills.
- The cashier was quite a n old man, and
be knew Miss .Margaret, and soinel inies
if he were not busy he would ask her
how she did. Miss Margaret, always
said, "1 am in very good health, thank
God, and thank you for asking, sir."
The cashiei, bad forgotten for how
many years be had paid Miss Margin et
hei little cheque, or1 how many times
he had asked after her health, hut he
had been comparatively a young man
when he began doing s()j ami now lie
bad Ki'iind-cliildren.
One diy���il was the day for Miss
AIargaret to pay her tnxi:���he remarked I lint her lil tie gloved hand trembled
ii-she signed hei name; iu fact, had
not Miss Margaret made out the cheque
before his eyes he would not have been
sin e it was her willing, noi- yet her
.signal 111 e. When the ledger-keeper
marked \ he cheque she had miiI quicl-
ly, "Does lli.-it auioiml. leave any
b.i l.*i nee}'" aud I he luau, glancing a I he.
Iiook, bail answered "No madam."
T 1 ii day, somehow, he did noi ask
.'I  I ei her licillh; she ,i..d her v 1 ,1 dow n
������ind took her ���small money s-ilenfly.   ,
When she went out she looked back
,-it liim ,-i moment; then hesitated, then
wont/slowly away.
The taxes were large that year.
People grumbled a good deal. Miss
Margin et heard I hem as she stood
waiting her turn to hand in her money.
The entire,icjM vve'iil in, and the clerk
,stamped the leceiptand banged down
;i few coppers change with it before
the little lady. Carefully Miss Margaiet
gathered them up and quielly stole out
of the crowd. .
���She walked home that day. There
were not ten coppei's t'o pay the tram
in her small, shaking hand. When
she reached her neat doorway, wilh
its polished brass knob and shining
side-lights, her knee-, were trembling
and her small limbs ached ft with
weariness. She unlocked thedooi, and
befoie she-��went in she looked through
her antique lace veil up and down the
street, such ii wistful, soirowful,
resolute look.' Then tin) door closed
on her small figure,,anil she wo.it.slowly along the hall iind opened her
sitting-room door.
'It'was  seveiai  davs  after'that   the
' '    *
good-natured housewife,'to whom Miss
Margaret caine for dripping every Saturday, said to the Min'islerds .wile, " I
wonder what has happened lo Miss
Margaret? She did not'come for, the
dripping for her pensioner ycsterd-iy."
The Minister's wife considered. " It
looked like rain," she-said suggestively.
1" Ves, but it blew over and wif?-, fine
before the hour she usually comes.
Have you seen her about the last, few
days:-' Maybe she's ill, and all "ali'me
too." t> '      r-
The Minister's Wife,Iooked alarmed.
Let us go and onquii e," she said quickly. So the two went from the, -.much
door to the quaint house near by, and
rang the brass holI?Iiisiily. They rang
three great peal-, and then, with some,
reluctance and fe.irol intruding, they
died iiio handle. The door s.vung0
open, a'td <with an e\c];iinatiou the
wo.nen stepped into a jieri'erlly bare
and empty hall. <
"I aoi siirejl here's soinel hing wrong,"
vyhispeied the Minister's Wife. Then
she (-idled timidly,' " Miss > Margaret,''
and was iinswered by a' faint mewing
and scratching behind tii.1-sill liig-roojii
The I wo women Inn riedlv ci o-s'ed
the hall and opened the door: a cat,
gaunt iind famished darted past (hem.
The I'diiin will empty save for,1 small
splint nicker, on vvhicn a little figiue
in a a bonnet and shawl, was limply
huddled. A few coppers lay on the
floor beside it, and a close odor made
the air of I he room heavy and queer.
"My Und." said lhe Minister's Wife,
"she is dead," and the women backed
out of the house, pell-mell.
When the poiicein.-in and the doctoi
("line in, they still ed in amazement, al
the empty room, at the pat hei iv little
form on the splint rocker, ill the
cappers on tl.e bare floor. Tlr-n they.,
closed the door mil il the coi oner came.
