A CHniSTMAS L.V3 IN IRELAND.
Cliristiutui ovo in tho mountains o"
Ballyeoltann, in tlio Coutity Curie, Ito
land. A blazintt tmf fire on tho hearth-
Btonc. In tho chimney corner sat Daniel
Donovan, 70 years old, who could talk
nothing but Gaelic. Ho was twisting a
littlo wooden wheel which connected by
n. passage under tho hearthstone wilh
tho middle of the firo, whici flickered
and flared as the current of air swept
through. Next to tho old man sat
Biddy, aged 20, with her hair brushed
smoothly back from her forehead and
tied in,n Roman knot at tjio back of hot
head. Closo to Biddy sat Mary, who had
novcr seen n black man or a Chinaman.
- Sandwiched between Mrs. Donovan
and Mary sat tho American visitor. The
okl woman was smoking and crooning,
and a littlo grandchild with checks like
ripe peadhes stood with her golden head
resting on her grandmother's lmeo.
Tho firelight danced and gleamed over
tho' littlo gioup ns tho December wind
camo down tho wide mouthed chimney.
The scene was ro suggestivo of peace
and rest that for fiftcan nrinutea no one
spoko. Then JIi'3. Donovan t.aid:
"And mebbo fio Yankee gintloman "11
sing u u son '?'
He would indeed lwvo been an tin
giateful follow who should refine audi
a request t'.nT circumstances at onet) 1
so homely und so hospitable. And in
that grateful ai.uo3)hero ho telt botno of
tho old tiim i wcoincss come into his
voice as ho sang of the harp that oueo
tho soul of music shed in Turn's halls,
and told in '''" - tho stoiy of how two
eyes of Irish blue looked up at Pat Mnl
loy. And us bo sang a look of rapt won
der and admiration camo into tho face of
his homely listeners. He forgot that his
audience was a few Irish peasants, aud
standing upright ho clasped the back of
his chair and poured out into the lowly
thatched cottage that wonderful aria by
Moligue, "Pour Out Thy Heart Beforo
.the Lord." Ho hud sung it beforo in a
massive Vatliedml accompanied by it
great organ, and had heard tho tones of
his voice go ringing down the echoing
nave, but never had ho felt tho sweet
ness aud beauty of it as on that Christ
mas evo in tho lowly little cabin iu tho
mountains. And when ho had finished
the aria and resumed his seat, Mrs. Dono
"Mebbe the gintlenian will sing us a
song about koine I"
Almost beforo ho knew it tho visitor
had begun, "Do They Miss Me ntHome?"
Ho reached tho third lino, "To know at
tins moment somo loved ono wero Bay
ing, 'I wish ho wcro hero,' " when ho be
gan to choke. Tho memory of his own
home in far off America camo to liiin.
What was tho baby doing? Did the
children havo tko usual Christmas
tree? Was everybody in good health?
Was any ono wishing for tho absent
one? And beforo tho lines wero out of
his mouth he went all to pieces like a
ship on tho rocks. Ho was a strong
man who prided himself on his cynicism
and materialism. Ho could not remem
ber tho timo when his eyes had been wet
before. But sitting there upon a chair
with ti seat made of straw ropo, und sur
rounded by us bimple and ingenuous peo
ple os tho sun ever shone upon, ho placed
his hands oyer his face, and tho tears
ran through his fingers and fell upon tho
hearthbtono. An awestruck silence lell
upon tho littlo group, broken by tho
moaning of tho wind in the chimney.
Mrs. Donovan, her face shining with
sympathy, gently tapped tho stranger
on tho whoulder nnd whispered in his
"If yo wero to take a cup o' tho Congo
tea yo'd feel botther, sir!"
no took tho 'Congo" and felt better.
Then ho went outsido, and looking up at
tho stara wondered why it was necessary
for hin to go 0,000 miles uwny from
homo in order o innko n fool of himself.
