"Some people have pianos for ornament,
but nobody h'iSts up a pianner with a

said, when she appeared, "but I have a

Perhaps she couldn't help it. Perhape

the money, or what it would buy, that
would have purchased more fashionable
attire. But this thought never occurred
to the two men, or rather males, who in
a half insolent and wholly sneering way
made side remarks about their fellow
passenger's appearance, and said it was
plain to be seen that "she was no lady."
Presently an old man with a heavy
basket boarded the car. The big, ro

had brought a blush to the shabbily
dressed woman's cheek never stirred.
