A BEGGAR'S WARDROBE. A short time ago an old woman named Jane Doug- las. who resided at St. Heller's, Jersey, and who had I-iibsistecl on charity, died, leaving her landlord (Mr. I Bonn) in charge of her few effects, as she had no relatives. Mr. Bonn did not meddle with anything in the house for three weeks after the deceased was buried, when he entered the house and made an in- spection. He found only the sum of 41.10s. in money but in addition to this, there was a large quantity of wearing apparel packed up in five or six large boxes, and which had been given to the deceased by persons who had visited her, believing her to be in a state of destitution. Amongst the articles were the following: -58 silk and stuff dresses, .30 shawls, 108 night dresses, 127 chemises, 29 flannel petticoats, 48 towels, 108 pocket handkerchiefs, 84 pairs of stockings, a quantity of print for dresses, 42 ties and neckerchiefs, 60 night caps, 24 skirts, 24 aprons, and 23 dress jackets. Many of the articles were quite new. In addition to these were found the following :—Three canisters and a small chest full of tea, a keg of sugar, and a barg also containing sugar. The wearing apparel has been given by Mr. Boun to poor persons and to the ragged schools.
