A 1Miser's Last Wish.
A Greek died in the small town of
Caracal, having always lived on the
alms of his compatriots. Before dying
he made his wife swear that she would
bury him in the dirty old overcoat which
he wore every (ay. The poor woman
had to ask the Greeks of Caracal to helpl
her to provide the costs of the funieral
A good hearted Gret-k went to see her in
her affliction, and pointing to the body
said he would give her a better coat to
bury the nman in. Then site told himn of
the dead man's last wish. The Greek.
whose suspicions were awakened, told
her that she should certainly not part
with the lbody before she had well exam

particular reason for the request. The
widow unpicked the lining of the over
coat and f ound "5,.(00 francs in bank
