Several year» ago I found myself—a
it ranger in a strange place—obliged to
cuange help tiecause of the poor health of
niy valued, valuable and well proven Esther
Many candidates for tbe place appeared, but
It seemed that my choice lay, if not between
evila, at least tietween undesirables. There
seemed to be the fewest outs m a short stat-
ured, soft voiced colored girL She proved a
fairly good cook and laundress, of docile
temper, willing to labor and to learn, but
almost wholly uutrained. lx?tt motherless at
an early age, like T'opsy she had “growed,”
picking up bite of household skill as she
drifted from one home to another. In this
way she had gathered enough wisdom to se­
cure food, shelter and clothing, but remained
a very child in the management of her own
affairs. Her wardrotie was of the scantiest.
Une or two little bundles comprised the whole
of it. VV hile there was a dearth of underwear,
print dresses and good, warm wraps, a poor,
old silk skirt, bought of some former mis­
tress, made an important item of her outfit.
As the days passed, revealing more fully
her utter destitution, my heart sank within
me, for 1 read in it uot poverty so much as
shit tiessness. Then came the reflection:
"Bessie is not responsible for all of thisl
How could she know what to do if uo one

query "What are you going to do about
it# If you turn her away from her sit­
uation because she is poorly equipped for
I tbe battle of life, where will she go# Who
will teach her What will tbe end be#” For
answer 1 saw this waif a trial to one mistress
after another; brief seasons of wage earning
alternating with dependenc*e on frieuds as
poor as herself, the thin, blasted ears of idle­
ness ever devouring the full ears of her
plenty 1 saw her the mistress of some poor
but, and surrounded by a rapidly multiplying
group of little Beesies, who would be sent
forth later, unkempt and untutored, to be
i tbe disgust and despair of another generation
of housekeepers. And then# Well, the pic­

doors, and I believe he meant me to do it.
bo, doing as to tbe lx»rd and for one of
bis little ones, and remembering that my
daughter might have been homeless and in
need of mothering, 1 began my work. There
was little difficulty in winning Bessie’s con
tidence sufficiently to make counsel as to her
wardrobe kindly received It was easy to
sug.tost the need of new working gowns and
aprons when the suggestion took the form of
an offer of help as: "Bessie, if you like to
get you a new print dress, 1 will stitch the
seams for you. ” Moreover, she soon found
that tbat was not all, there sure to be help­
ful hints as to cutting and planning. Then,
when she came to that bete noir, the button
holes, patient, repea ted lessons helped her to
fashion tidy slits, as unlike as possible the
ugly ellipses that had done duty in the past.
¡Sometimes, returning from "down town,”
1 would say: “Bessie, 1 saw such and such
goods of very, very pretty pattern, at low
prices, you would find this a good time to
buy.” Often the response would be: "1
guess 1 will have some. Would you please
get it for me. you gee such pretty things.”
And so the wardrobe grew, until, in addi­
tion to the working gear and underwear,
there was a pretty jersey jacket, a heavy
cloak, a woolen shawl, and a well made black
cashmere dress. This latter was a source of
special pride as being "my Boston dress,” so
called because it was purchased at the Hub
by special commission. As possessions in­
creased, so did her self resjxjct. Tbe poor
girl had evidently fancied that good and
abundant clothes were set a|>art for an order
of beings quite remote from her, and with
whom she could uot expect to have anything
in common.
Uf course there were some drawbacks and
discouragements. Sometimes a lew dollars
would be ex pended foolishly for articles more
showy than pretty, durable or suitable, or
some nice, pretty garment would be worn
wheu about rough and dirty work, to the
great detriment of tbe garment and the dis­
heartening of the mistress. Sometimes good
materials would be "witched” distressingly
Again, the seams would be long and numer­
ous. and the button holes would need atten­
tion when more pleasant occupations were
inviting pursuit But there was a reward
and good cheer in seeing a tidy handmaiden
and in listening to the delighted exclamation:
"I didn’t think 1 could ever have anything
like this!”
By and by. another way to partial release

“Two skilled detectives agree in the
theory that the disease known as klep­
tomania does not exist. ‘When a rich
woman steals fifty dollars worth ol
goods she has kleptomania,’ said one
of them, 'and when a poor woman
steals fifty cents’ worth of bread to
feed her starving children she is a
thief. Show me a pauper with a real
bad attack of kleptomania,' and I will
believe that there is such »disease, for.
if there is. why should not the poor be
as susceptible to it as the rich? My
impression at present is that people

in my experience of many years have
any goods been returned or paid for by
the friends of people afflicted with this
imaginary malady; it is only when dis­
covered stealing that they and all their
friends call them kleptomaniacs. When
a woman comes in here and buys a
new bonnet and walks off bold with it
