    Your questioned sentence is just small portion of "Appointment in Samarra" by Sommerset Maugham. Let me copy the portion it came from as follows:

    DEATH SPEAKS: There once was a merchant inBagdad who sent his servant to market to buy provisions. In a little while, theservant went back to him, white as a ghost and trembling, and said, “Master,just now I was jostled by a woman in the crowd. When I turned to look upon her, I saw that it was Death that had jostled me.She looked at me and made a threatening gesture.

    As you can see whoever copy, he or she didn't copy the sentence correctly. Hence, it doesn't make sense as far as the context is concerned. The above curtailed portion shall give you a better idea what the original sentence means.
