"Dutch" is a nickname for wife among the costermongers of England, and is fraught with much endearment and the fullest appreciation of a woman considered the equal of any lady in the land. This particular "Dutch" and her husband are an old costermonger couple whose hearts are in the right place, and, like many of their kind, are greater than their judgments. If this be a fault at all, it is on the right side of the recorded virtues, which is strongly shown in the helping hand which they extend to Clive Huntley, a penniless artist whom the old costermonger finds in need of food and shelter. Mrs. Bill Hawkins, with her kindly and motherly attention, nurses the man back to health and strength. Her services win the gratitude of their guest. It can be plainly seen that Clive Huntley is a man bred far above the environments by which he is now surrounded, but never has he come under kindlier influences or more generous hospitality. By the death of a cousin Clive inherits a large estate, the announcement of which is gratefully received by him, and rejoiced in by Mr. and Mrs. Bill Hawkins. The young artist is soon placed in possession of the necessary papers and funds to enable him to leave the home of his friends and take charge of his fortune. The parting between the old couple and Clive is most affectionate and sincere. Some weeks later Bill Hawkins and his "Old Dutch" are approached by two scheming promoters with a get-rich-quick proposition, and the old couple are induced to invest their all in a wild-cat mining company, which, six months later, they find has gone the way of all such enterprises. Ruin stares them in the face. The bailiffs come to serve dispossess papers upon them, and take away their meager furnishings. What we have hoped for happens: Clive Huntley appears again upon the scene, stops the proceedings of the minions of the law by giving them a check for the full amount of their judgment, and Clive, now Sir Clive Huntley makes his presence known to his old friends and substantially acknowledges their beneficence to him by relieving them of all further anxiety as to their future livelihood: and the "bread cast upon the waters returns to them, after many days, ten-fold."
