A Troubled One.
It is said that the expression "There
is a skeleton in every closet" arose
from the following incident: A young
Italian student, finding he was dying,
fearing to break the news to his moth
er, adopted the following device: He
informed her that he was ill and that
it had been foretold he would not re
cover until he had worn a shirt made
by a woman who had no tpuble. The
widow soon discovered it was no easy
task to find such a person, but at length
was referred to a lady who seemed
surrounded with every comfort and
happiness and possessed a husband
.who seemed devoted to her. The wid
ow made known her request and for
an answer was shown a closet where a
skeleton hung suspended fr;m a beam.
She was told it was the reoftus Of the
lady's former lover, who from motives
of jealousy had been slain by her hus
band, and that he compelled her to vis
it It every dny. The widow concluded
that no one was without trouble, that
"there Is a skeleton in every closet,"
and became reconciled to the approach
