A MISER'S HOARD. There has recently passed away at Marl- borough, Wilts, an old woman, age<i eighty-five, who, though she lived a miserly life in a small eottage alone, and was generally supposed to exist^y the charity of others, left between £ 600 and £ 700. Up to the time of her death she was in receipt of an old-age pension, which she had received since the Act came into operation, and she had been the recipient of coal and grocery tickets from the vicar of the parish. When the cottage was searched, after the funeral, a con- siderable sum of money, stated to be about JE200, was found secrete<l in various parts of the beoroom, in boxes and in other places, and it had also transpired that she had E400 invested in the bank. It is stated that the old woman was eo miserly that she would sift her neigh- bours' ashes for cinders.
