FEMALE OPIUM FIEND.
"Lady Madge's” Romantic History and
■ Her Life in a Garret.
From the Baltimore Herald.
A tall, thick-set man, clad in tho familiar
blue -oat and brass buttons of a Baltimore
policeman, stood on the corner of Eutaw
and Baltimore streets last Sunday night. It
lacked but a fovv minutes of midnight. That
busy, bustling thoroughfare, Baltimore
street, was practically deserted. Here and
there one would meet, with a belated citizen
on his way home, while the restful silence
of the sleeping city was broken at irregular
intervals by the rumbling of some slow
moving hack or cab.
The official guardian of public life and
property is not a bad sort of a follow after
you have penetrated t'ue outer crust of
official dignity and self-esteem, and this par
ticular representative of “one of the finest,"
as he leisurely surveyed tho passers-by
under the pale glare of the electric light,
appeared to be delighted when his lonely ,
vigil was interrupted by a newspaper man’s
stereotyped salutation: “Is there anything
“Nothing in particular,” replied the offi
ce:- as he drew hack from his rather con
spicuous position into the dark shadows of a
convenient doorway, “There's nothing,”
he continued, “save that the poor devils of
opium fiends seem to be on the rampage to
night. I have counted no less than twenty
during the last ten minutes.”
“Opium fiends, indeed! Mostly rum
soaked bums, are they not }” said the Sun
day Herald reporter.
WORK FOR TEMPERANCE REFORMERS.
“Nothing of t’a • sort. Why, here on my
beat it’s mostly women, and let me tell you
that the majority of them don’t even know
tho taste of rum. It seems strange to me
why these temperance people don’t take a
brief vacation in their fight against King
Whisky and try to crush out this infernal
opium habit. Even you reporters, who are
always poking about for items, haven’t the
faintest idea of what the opium fiends really
are. Whisky and beer! Why, man, they
are nothing compared with the fool drug
used by the poor devils who are slaves to
the opium habit.”
The policeman had by this time waxed
eloquent over his subject, and when the
newpaper man asked him to show him
where he could find one of the so-called
fiends he chuckled at what he termed an
absurd question. The reporter and the
policeman had been chatting for some time,
w-hen the former was somewhat startled by
receiving a gruff order to “Keep quiet,”
from the usually pleasant-voiced officer.
“Here comes ’Lady Madge,’ now.” point
ing to the dark figure of a woman that was
moving swiftly up Baltimore street. “We
call her Laxly Madge.” softly whispered the
officer. “You see the poor thing was once
a ‘swell’ and associated with the ‘big bugs,’
and in spite of her present plight all the
varnish of her former position is not rubbed
The woman by this time had arrived at
the corner, halted for a moment beneath
the glaring light of the electric lamp, and
then, to the dismay of the officer, advanced
toward him. The gentleman in blue stepped
from under the doorway.
“What is it to-night, and why ain’t you
home?” excl. imed the officer in a voice that
was kind despite the offorts of the owner to
make it harsh and stern.
“Oh! sir, that man Pete, you remember
him, snatched my parcel fi-om me down on
Charles street a moment ago, and I will die
for the want of it to-night.” sobbed the
‘‘lady,” her slight form trembling violently.
She would - have fallen had it not been for
‘ the officer’s strong arm, which closed
around her just in the nick of time.
“Pete is a cowardly brute, but hadn’t yob
better try to do without it to-night,
Madge?” replied the minion of the law, who
apparently had forgotten his official dignity
and the chance of the Sergeant making an
unwelcome appearance on the scene.
“No, no; I cannot, and you know I'm
telling you the truth!” cried the poor un
fortunate, shivering in the chilly night air.
With a feeling of half pity, half curiosity,
the newspaper man volunteered to assist the
“lady” home, and, if positively necessa y,
give her money with which to purchase
more of the di-ug. Strangely eager as was
Madge to be put in possession of the seduc
tive drug, it was not until after the officer
had vouched for his good character tha.
the woman consonted to accept of the offer.
“What must Ido for you? Why are you,
a stranger, so willing to befriend me?” she
said, casting upon the newspaper man a
searching glance from a pair of glittering
“Be easy, Madge,” interrupted the blue
coated officer. You see he’s one of those
newspaper reporters, and all he wants of
you is for you to allow him to go home
w ith you and li-teri to your story. He is
merely in search of an item.”
“My story!” exclaimed the doubting
Madge. “And what possible interest can
the story of my wretched existence be to
“I don’t know, but he does want it,” was
the officer’s vague reply, “and you see you
will be getting the stuff, and you really must
hurry anyway, because it’s high time you
Finally, after another parley, in which the
newspaper man took a solemn oath to pub
lish no names, Madge at last consented to
allow him to escort her home, and on condi
tion of his furnishing the necessary opium
to give him the history of her life. The
gruff, but kind-hearted officer, wrafft the
remnants of what had once been a thin
black shawl more closely round the ema
ciated shoulders of the “lady.” who nccepted
the little attention with the "air of a duchess,
and after bidding the policeman “good
night’ she started up Eutaw street, accom
panied by her volunteer escort.
Nothing of a startling nature occurred to
the “opium fiend” and her companion
during their nocturnal tramp through the
silent and deserted streets of West Balti
more. Several times the latter attempted
to engage Madge in conversation, hut she
evidently desired to be undisturbed in her
meditations, answering questions in mono
syllables, and so, silently, the reporter
allowed liis strange companion to cut out
the pace and tako her own course until at
last she halted before the dingy shop of a
druggist who puts up strange smelling
prescriptions and compounds darkly sus
picious decoctions at all hours of the day.
Hand ng his companion a silver quarter,
the newspaper man bade her enter and pur
chase the drug.
THE PRECIOUS DRUG.
Without a word she took the coin, entered
tho shop, spoke to the sleepy night clerk,
who retired to tho mysterious back room to
be found in all well-appointed apothecary
shops, and presently re appeared with a.
small chunk of a dark-brownish mass, which
he deftly wrapped up in a bit of pinkish
paper, handed the parcel to Madge on pay
ment, and then with a muttered “good
night" tossed t he silver coin into the money
drawer and returned to his well-padded easy
chair, which was concealed by a show-case
crowded with a varied assortment of fancy
Madge thrust the precious parcel in the
pocket of her gown and started out for her
home. A brisk 10 minutes’ walk, during
which she seemingly doubled on her previous
trail, anil the “flona" halted before a tum
ble down bouse situated on a quiet side
street that lies but a few squares from the
“Western Folioe station. The half-visible
surroundings of Madge’s place of residence
did not look particularly inviting, but as she
appeared to be perfectly familiar with the
place tho reporter made no comment as she
led tho way up the creaking stairs, flight
after flight, until at last she stood on the
narrow binding of the fourth floor, and
before her was the door that opened into the
den of the “opium fiend.”
It was pitch dark and the woman fumbled
about for the key-hole, but after a brief de
lay tho door swung back and she bade her
companion enter the room. He struck a
match and the two. after considerable diffi
culty, managed to light a stumpy bit of
tallow caudle, which Madge had fished out
of tho debris of odds and ends lying on tho
mantel. She placed the flickering candle on
what appeared to be a poor apology for a
table, and commanded her escort, in lhconic
tones, to sit down and make himself com
fortable. Seating himself upon the iedge of
the only window, the reporter took a care
ful glance of the wretched surroundings.
Imagine a cheerless garret, say 8 by 10
feet, with unpiastered walls and the slanting
ceiling pierced here and there by gaping
holes through which the wind whistled un
comfortably. The only window.was seem
ingly a hopeless combination of broken
glass, crumbling putty and rattling sash.
The wretched room contained but little fur
A careful inventory of the contents of the
den revealed an aged pine table minus one
leg, a straw mattress that had seen its best
days, an empty packing-box, a pile of
empty soda bottles, two or three bat
tered tin plates, au earthen tea-cup, and last,
but by no means least interesting, a well
While the reporter had been looking about
him Madge had removed her fragment of a
shawl, and what it is charitable to suppose
had once been a respectable straw bonnet.
She might have passed as “a horrible ex
amDle” for any ambitious temperance orator
without the slightest making up for the
part. As she stood revealed in the dim
light by the tallow candle, clad in a pic
turesquely ragged gown, her head of dullish
black hair caught up in a bosely tied knot,
and her pale, pinched face almost without
expression, she made a living picture of
wretchedness and despair that was fasci
“Not what one might designate as strictly
comfortable quarters, are they ?” queried the
slave to the drug, as with trembling fingers
she unwrapped the paper from about the
sticky mass of opium gum which she had
purchased at the drug store. “Now ” she
continued, “you see nothing in me but a
hopeless wreck of what was once a woman.
Wait a few moments and you will face
As she concluded this rather dramatic
speech she began to eat the gum with the
air of a connoisseur. The change in the
woman’s appearance was startling. Slowly
a roseate blush spread over her sallow
cheeks, the great black eyes grew brilliant
in then - wndness and tne sluggish blood
rushed through her veins at lightning speed.
Madge seemed to be carried to another
sphere. Animated and smiling she seated
herself on the edge of her miserable couch,
and then announced her willingness to be
“Tell me your story in your own way,”
said her visitor.
“It’s a long story,” began Madge, still
nibbling at her lump of gun, “but I’ll be as
brief as possible. lam but 30 years old, al
though any one to see me as I now am would
think me much older. There was nothing
remarkable about mv childhood. I was born
here in Baltimore. My father was well-to
do financially, and I, being the only child,
had all the comforts that money could pro
cure. I was educated at a boarding school
just out of Philadelphia, where my parents
removed to soon after the beginning of my
career at school. I graduated with the cus
tomary honors, and made my debut in soci
ety on my eighteenth birthday. The two
years that followed were crowded with
pleasure. Then misfortune came. My
father died, and my mother followed him
in six mouths’ time. My property was in
trusted to an ambitious uncle, who, after
sinking both his own and my fortune in an
unlucky speculation, blew out his brains.
LAUDANUM —MORPHIA —OPIUM.
“The ioss of relatives and fortune nearly
drove me mad, and I succumbed to a severe
attack of what the physician called nervous
prostration. To ease my sufferings they in
mistaken kindness gave me laudanum. This
was followed by the insidious morphia, and
at last opium itself. Before my illness I
was a strong young woman in 'body and
mind. When, after my two months’
wrestle with disease, I arose from my sick
bed I was nothing but a wreck; aye, more
than that, I was a confirmed opium fiend.
I fully realized my awful position, and
struggled hard to break myself of tho habit,
but found it useless. Sick at heart, I gath
ered together what was left from the wreck
and came to Baltimore, where f have since
remained and will probably die.
“This is my story,” concluded Madge.
“There is nothing sensational about it, being
simply one out of many thousand similar
cases. I don’t ask for aid, or do not want
to be visited by the curious, heartless mob.
AU I ask is to be left alone until death
comes to my relief. You have promised me
that you would not betray my secret. You
do not know my name, and will proba ly
never see me again. I thank you for your
kindness in giving me this opium, and—
and—l am very, very sleepy now.”
A LAST GLANCE.
That was all. Scarcely had she uttered
the closing words when, with a satisfied
sigh, she sank down on the mattress and
closed her eyes, falling to sleep at once.
The candle gave a flicker and was out,
but the gray dawu of early morning stole
through the window and the numerous rents
in the roof, and shed a ghastly light on the
“opium fiend,” as she lay upon the mattress
with a bit of the brown glim still tightly
clutched in her hand. A smite played about
the corners of her purplish bps. Pleasant
dreams, evidently. The reporter laid the
ragged shawl over Madge, stuffed a newspa
per in one of the largest of the holes in the
roof, and with a last glance at the sleeping
“opium fiend,” left the wretched garret and
groped his way down the aged stairway.
How Should She Have Been Dealt
From, the Hartford Couran t.
New York, Nov. 23.—An incident, by
the way, occurred at a theatre recently in
the presence of your correspondent that is
rather characteristic of a certain class of
the denizens of this great city. It was at
the performance of a certain exceedingly
popular play, and from gallery to pit every
place was taken, the aisles were thronged
so that passage was impossible, and the only
free space was the st ps, which by law are
prohibited to be used as seats. In the midst
of the performance a rather pretty blondish
woman, with a faded air, worked her way
through the crowd, and walking the length
of the orchestra chairs, seated herself on
the lowest step, that of the front row of
balcony chairs. An usher soon fought his
way to her requesting her to rise, explaining
that it was against the law to permit any
one to occupy that place. The woman said
something in a low voice that so startlod
the box opener that he at once went away,
with a pale face and flashing eyes. In a few
moments he returned, accompanied by some
one of the management, and they renewed
the conversation. At last the woman rose
half way up from the step and related
what she (It afterward proved) had been
saying to them since she was first requested
to move: “If you say one won! to me about
getting up from here I wifi cry ‘Fire,’ and
then tne play will end and all these people
be crushed to death. ” Of course, there was
nothing to do about it but let her stay. She
held the lives of hundreds of people in her
hands. If she had been sized and taken
out she would have cried fire till they could
gag her. When the two mon left nor she
settled herself comfortably on tho step, and
for the rest of the play seemed absorbed in
