Pranch Marquise Bequeathes $20,000
to Ba Used to Redeem Pledges
of the Poor.
Ths Marquise de Guerry has bs
tueathed nearly $20,000 to the city
of Paris for the redemption of small
objects pledged In the state pawn?
shops by the poor.
The legacy has its origin in a visit
paid one day by the marquise to the
chief depot of the Mont de Plete. as
the state pawnbroking establishment
ls called In Prance, where her atten?
tion was attracted by a silver chris?
tening set. consisting of a knife, fork
and spoon, such as is given to a child
on its baptism or first communion
Tbe set was tarnished with age and
the ticket showed lt had been ta
pawn for half a century.
The marquise was told that regu
larly for many years since 1860, whet
the little christening gift was pawned
either the father or the mother of th<
recipient had come and paid the tri
ting Interest on the pledge, doubtless
a relic of a dead child Each year tha:
man or his wife was a little older, t
tittle shabbier, a little sadder, but tha
Interest was punctually paid.
Then the man ceased his annua
visits and only the woman came, un
til she. too, failed to appear. Neithei
was ever seen again, and the llttli
christening gift remained in Its wrap
