went on their way In life, thrifty and
kind to tho Hior, and doing good whon
In tho morning Paul would goudeld
to Ilia work, while Dame Iturhnrer would
remain ut homo to do whatever house
hold tasks needed attention and after
ward to Hplii smooth thrutuUof flux with
her dixttilt, to bo wild in the market of
the town or to be woven into cloth from
which alio made clothing foi lierxulf and
her huuhniid, or, what qulto as often
liaiHnud, foray mo poor and unfortunulo
Dame Ilarbarer was always kind to tho
beggars who caino her wuy. They aeem
ed to her ho unfortunate in not huvlng a
homo that h!io could not help giving
them nt least food and now and then an
article of clothing, and hIiu wuh itlmiwt
always (mllentoven when their re(Uohts,
as KomclimcH loiiieued, took almoHt the
form of command.
"Tho (Hor creatures know no better,"
she would say. "They have nothing;
not even .0110 enough to know how to
bo grateful; but that does not matter. I
do not help them lii-caumj they bcfi
prettily, but because they need."
Hut once upon a time I hero came a
beggur who tried tho patience of Danic
liarliarer quite beyond even her endur
ance. It was one afternoon when it was
almost time for her husband to return
from the II, hi, ami liarbarer was hasten
ing to get bis evening meal ready for
him. She hud liccu to the town to sell
some thread, ami had been detained, so
that she had not time on her return to
kiko a wheateu cake for his Rupier, in
olio had liileiuled. She hud only a very
little broad in the Ionise, and when a
beggar cuiuoaliiiigand rather impudently
demanded a bit of bread and cheese she
was loth to give it to him.
The la-ggnr was by no means a prepos
sessing looking individual. His dress wan
all of red, alt hough il was bo faded ami
weather beaten, no tattered nnil torn that
It waa bard to tell what it looked like in
Its I icst days. The remains of a red
cock's feather was stuck jauntily in his
cap and jagged ends of faded red rllilsin
fastened his doublet. Long black hall
dangled in tangled locks over his fore
head, mid, with his hhngi'V black eye
brows, half bid his piercing eyes. Ills
Hose was sharp and thin, and there wits
to his nostrils a strange curve which
made Ids face one not at all prcpos-icHS-lug.
Add to all this that he was lame
of one fool and that he hud something
of a hump iH-tweeii bis slioiililcrs, and lie
was not nt all the sort of man 0110 would
wish to meet on a lonely Mad.
I lame Ilarbarer heaved a sigh as she
li Hiked ut him. and hesitated, while the
st ranee red lU'ilru leered at her In 11 man
ner that sent a cold chill down her spina.
She did not w ish to share tho little bread
there was for rani's hiiikt with this
fantastic looking creature, hut she was
toocliiirilahle to turn him away without
a morsel. So she made the lieggnr sit
down ii)kiii the diHirslcp, and then alio
brought him it Hindi piece of bread and
a big pieco of cliii'se, hoping that the
size of the one would make up for the
enmllncss of the other.
Tho red U'ggar fell to eating with tho
npHtlto of a board of locusts and us If
he had eaten nothing for a month, and
it waa hardly the twinkling of an eye lie
fore be bad Ibiished thebitof bread com
pletely. "l'lease, mist reus," lie wild lieseechlng
ly, "please, mistress, could you not give
1110 just a little wee bit of bread to eat
with tho rest of my cheese?"
The dame, although this was exactly
what she ilid not wish to do, cut him a
slice of bread and gavo It to him with
the licst grace she could manage.
Tho ragged r.iscul fell to eating even
faster than before, mid almost licforo
alio bad laid down the bread knife he
hud iiinde 1111 end to his cheese.
"Dense, kind mistress," he wild more
humbly than before, "(dense, kind mis
tresa, couldn't you give mo a morsel uf
choose to go with my bread?"
This also was I Mine llarharcr fain to
do and hungrily ns the fire devouring a
field of riH grain did tho vnrlet make
way Willi Ids bread.
"l'lease, gotsl, kind inUri M," he said,
"please, good, kind mistress, could you
not give me a very little, wee morsel of
bread to eat with my cheese?"
And to cut short a story which though
It would lie long In tho telling was not
long ill the doing, tho red is'ggnr would
contrive llrnt to make nn end to his bread
and then to luuku an end to his cheese,
begging with over increasing Inslstance
formnroof one nnd then of tho other,
until lie had managed to beg from Datno
Ilarbarer every morsel of breud them
waa in the house, mid the hour of tho
good man's return already striking, And
when nil was goiio the Impudent and un
grateful red varlet threw buck Ida hair
from his deep set and piercing eye) and
laughed In her face,
"Many thanks, sweet mistress," lie
said saucily. "If the good man scold
for look of Ids Btiiicr, teach him the way
I get mine, and It may serve hitn in
good atead if ho will but take to the
highway and seek out some soul as char
itable as Ida wife."
Then it was that for almost tho only
time in her lifo Dumo Iturhnrer lost her
"Oct you gone!" alio cried angrily. "Ia
it not enough that you havo eaten all tho
good man 'a supper when he tolled all
day and you huve been asleep, it is liko
ly, In tho Bun ber.ldo soma havstack, but
in return you must stay, and flout me
for my silly good nnturo, A pretty re
turn, grsxl sooth, for tho fond I have given
youl Get you gone while I can still keen
my honest bunds off your hiity carcass,"
The vagabond scrambled up from hie
teat upon the doorstep, and stood look
ing Into her angry fuce with nn unploat
"May I not come In nnd warm myself
by the lire first?" he asked saucily.
"Come In and warm yourself 1" echoed
the dame angrily. "Let your supper
warm you, boggart"
And with that the pushed him off of
the atop Into tho sandy walk.
"May you be colder tho more you put
on," suid tho red beggar as Datuo Bar
barer closed her cottage door upon him
with a push not very geutlo.
The duino did not heed him or Ida
words, hut set to work with nil spued to
got something ready for her husband's
"Shivery shakeryl" said Dame Bar
barer to Goodman Puul whou hocaine,
"I am very cold."
"Put more clothes on," ho answered.
So ha gave her his coat, and she put
thutontind her thickest cloak, and her
hood and a pair of mittens, and two
pairs of stockings.
"Shivery shakervt Shukery shivery!"
cried the old woman; "I am colder than

So she (ut on a veil ami her husband's

of earrings and a walking stick.
' "Shivery shakery! Shukery shivery!
I shiver and shako!" she cried. "I urn
colder than before."
"Put tnoru clothes on," said her hus
band. So she put 011 a blanket and a bosom
pin, and a nucklaou that alio had not
worn since she was a young girl, and a
collar and her husband's watch chain.
"Shivery shakeryl Shukery shivery!
I shiver and shake! I shake and shiver!"
she cried. "I am colder than ever."
"Put more clothes on," once more said
her husband. "Here, take my thick

It was well nigh a year that this state
of tilings continued, and one day just as
the sun was near setting, and tha dame
wus every moment exiectiug her hus

The (Hior old creature wus bent well nigh

was not straight, a hump standing out
where her shoulders were stooped over.
Tile old woman, indeed, was so bent over
that it wus not possible to aeo her face,
and It was only by her dress that one
could have known her again.
But it was thin dross which mailo Dame
Ilarbarer stare; for It was all of faded
red, tattered nnd stained and weather
beaten, mid patched hero and there, but
despite the fact that it was thu dress of
a woman nnd not of a man, there wus
something alsjut it that brought the red
beggar of tho year licfore up so vividly
