A JHXjr woman related how sho had struggled
in privation, finding tho utmost dilllculty in

come to tho conclusion that death was bettor
than life. Sho resolved to commit suicide,
when it occurred to her that If sho took her
life her Uxly would bo ignonilnlously hurried
to a xiuior burial. This took a keen hold of
her woman's vanity, nnd tho prospect was
ono by no menus to bo endured, Sho there
fore set herself, with determined toll and
patient thrift, to necumuluto mouoy enough
to defray tho oxiwuso of decent burial. When
