I-w I "W TUT 7" fl "TT By Charles Battcll Loomis.
. GALWAY ggr f ,w; ; I When T decided to visit Ireland, I Baid to my friends that I would do it in a hnpp'-go-lucky way, and some of them said that that was the only way to travel. Others said that tho only way io travel was to familiarize myself thoroughly with the country before starting. "Got maps and histories and guide books and time tables," Baid these lat ter. "Take a county a week and ground yourself thoroughly on its his tory, archaeology, topography, politics, customs, time of departure of trains, its hotels and 'tram routes,' and so on, county by county, read up on Ireland, and when you land there . you will bo an intelligent being, knowing all about its politics, and really more informed than the uverage nativo. If you don't have a good time there 'ou will at least havo had a good time cramming for tho trip." Nowf my gorge rose at tins program. I knew that Ireland was down-trodden, green, beautiful, sorrowful, easy to lead and hard to drive, and that she lay to tho left of Great Britain and within easy stccrngo distance of New York, with a great many dialects, all differ ent from those to be found in print, and that she had trams, "cars," rail road trains and steamboats. More than that I did not care to know until I should need to do so. I And bo I landed, care free and quite ignorant. And yet on the whole I havo fared well. I fiavo. not missed a train or a hotel or a meal or a bed or a shower, and I have found that no mat tor how' much T might havo studied the political question I would have been accounted n dunco by every one for Irish politics is so complicated that they frankly laugh at a foreignor over un derstanding it. But happy-go-lucky may bo carricu too far, as my efforts to roach Watcrford provod. In the first place, used to American travel, I supposed that if I bought through to Watcrford from Dublin, with Blopovor, or "journey breaking," privi leges, I would save money. So I bought a through' tickot, asked for permission to stop at a little way station, received it, and then found to my dismay after reaching there that I could go no fur ther than Wexford thnt night, and that my ticket became waste paper on tho stroko of 12. But little daunted, how ever, I passed tho night at Wexford, and roflcctcd as I looked at tho statue of tho "mon of 98" how different might havo beon our own history if our "boys of '76" had been unsuccessful in throwing off the British yoke or the Irish boys had been successful in throw ing off thoir yoko. Either event would have altered tho printing in our his tory books. Tho 'bus took mo down to catch the train, and in a happy-go-'lucky frame of mind once more I pur chased a second ticket to Watcrford, and in a minute or two the train doors II The fate of the 1 1 breakfast is decided I I by the quality of I I the Coffee.

The foolish penny -whistle shrieked, the train pulled out, and I mado the stations wo passed tally with my time table, and nil went merry as a mar riage bell until just before wo reached Watcrford. My journey was made interesting by the attention paid mo by two travelers who had come supplied with supper and drinks. Wc entered into amicable con versation, and at Inst one produced a bottle, lie was a nieok little man, and thoro had been six or seven girls to soo him off. lie was taking tho Fishguard routo to England, but from tho palaver they made over him you might havo supposed he was going to Abyssinin. When he pulled out his oottle tho other man, who was very sclf-asscrtivo, said with scorn: 'Tut it upl You'll ncod it all night long. Put it up!" "Sure, I want a drink," said tho meek little man. "Drink nut of mine," said the other, aud brought from out a wicker baskot a pint bottle of whisky. Both of thorn : took long pulls at it, and then tho aa sertive man looked at mo in a friendly I way and said: "Drink, you." j "Thanks," said I, having an old j fashioned preference for individual j bottles, "but I haven't had dinner, so "Drink. I have suppor enough for five. ' ' Tic had been feeding his two boys on the supper, thick slices of coarso but tered bread, with thicker slices of cold bacon laid gracofully on it, and I did not think I needed any, I look the bottle, surreptitiously wiped it with tho palm of u travel stained handj and took enough to show him that T did not dis dain it (although I really did), and then he opened his basket and spread before my gazo this nigli to a flitch of bacon on homc-mndo bread but such a homo! I thanked him profusolv and said to him that I was dieting and that was why I had had no supper. (Oh, liar! But it saved mo from eating just thou, and as I saw that tho two were going to keep tho bottlo moving round 1 mado a pillow out of my typewriter and raincoat and went to (anything but) sleep. Thoy thought I was asleep, howovcr, and got vory gay and noisy over tho flask, which was empty in no time. But I must say that tho whisky had littlo effect on them. A man can drink an nmount of whisky in Ireland ' (when it 's in a clean glass) that would make him obnoxious at home. After a while I was roused from my assumed sleep by the inspector of tick ets, to whom I showed mine, reading "Wexford to Watcrford,''" with a calm ness born of sleeping suspicion. The inspector was not at all pleased at my cho.ieo of tickets. lie was perfectly amiable, but ho said considering I had elected to travel on hjs road, I might havo bought a ticket for the same road, whereas 1 was using a ticket that was porfocly good on the parallel Toad, but was waste paper on this. "I'll have to ask you to pay your fare." 1 saw that it was not ho who had mado tho mistake (being very keen in such matters), and so I forgave him and asked him how much I should have to pay.- It proved to be just what I had paid the day before, and that day three shillings to Walerford, arid for the third time I paid it. lie told mo that if I would mail my ticket, bought in Wex ford, to Dublin, with the receipt that ho would give mo, I would got my money rofundod that the rival roads used the same stations -and that tho trains started at about the same time. I gave him a gold pioco, which ho coulil not change. "Wait a minute, sir," said ho, "aud I'll get 3'ou change" I was perfectly willing to wait for my seven shillings, but I regretted that tho wholo traihlond had to wait also. Heads popped out of all three classes of compartmonts, heads of workmen and ordinary peoplo out of tho third class windows, heads of ordinary peoplo out of the second class windows, and heads of snobs out of tho first claBS windows, and various were the questions asked to what had happened to delay the train. 2sTo one seemed to know except the peonlc in my carriage, and they did net tell. I had a connection to make at Watcr ford, und I did wish the train would start, but I also wanted my seven shill ings, and so I was torn by conflicting emotions. Up and down tho tickot in spector flitted, looking foj change. J. doubt not that tho ongino driver rolled n cigarette, and my assertive friend having finished his own bottlo, began i on that of his meek littlo friend, At last tho inspector uppoarod with my receipt and my change, and tho train moved away without whistle or bell to announce its departure, and I had bought my tickot to Watcrford.

Ono of the oarlicst of such organizations, if not tho earliest, was the Brothorhood of St. Andrew in tho Episcopal church. This organization, liko thoso in other ROBERT H. GAUDDSTER, bodies, undortook from the outset a specific work, that of drawing other mon into tho churches. Its members pledge themselves to work along defi nite lines of prayer and service, and in the twenty odd years that tho Brother hood has been organized it has grown to a present membership of nearly fif tcen thousand men.

He, rose with a scream of rage and rushed at his opponont, but the mate's tompor, which had suffered badly through his treat ment of tho last few days, was up, and ho sent him heavily down again. "There's a littlo 'dark dingy hole for ward," said tho mato, after waiting some time for him to rise again, "just the placo for you to go aud think over your sins in. If I sec you come out of it until wo get to Loudon I'll hurt you. Now clear." Tho other cleared, and, careful At tho head of this army of Epis copal men is the prosidcut of the Broth erhood Council, Robort Hallowcll Gar diner, of Gardiner, Maine. Mr. Gardi nor was chosen us leader thrco years ago, and was re-elected for tho third timo a few days ago at tho Brotherhood convention hold in Washington, D. C. Mr. Gardiner is a natural worker. Bo fore ho was chosen to lead the men of his church in his present position ho had been activo in the Brotherhood work, especially aa chairman of its col lege committee Ho had served as pres ident of the Boston local council and khad been a charter member of sev eral parish chapters of tho Brotherhood. But his activities in tho Episcolal chnrch havo not been limited by the Brothorhood of St. Andrew, for ho has boon treasurer of tho Episcopal city mission of BoBlon and of tho board of Diocesan missions, vice-president of tho Church club and a deputy to tho gen eral convention. Mr. Gardiner inherited his church manship. His family has boon a promi nent ono in Episcopal affairs in Now England over since its early members camo over from England in 1G35. Tho r resent Robert H. Gardiner is ono of ho few men in America who have in their control a "Living," in thc( sense in which that term is familiar in tho Church off England. Ono of his anccs- tors acquired a largo tract of land in Maino, at Gardiner, and on his death. entailed tho property, making provision that the estate should pay an annual stipend to the rector of tho Episcopal church at Gardiner, provided that tho member of the Gardiner family then occupying tho estate should name the rector. The present Robert H. Gardiner is a son of John William Tudor Gardiner, who was an officer in tho regular Unit ed States army, and was born at Fort Tejqn, California, when his father was stationed thoro. Ho succeeded to tho Gardiner cstato in 1886, on tho death of an uncle. lie was graduated from Harvard in 187G, and after preaching for a time in Do Vcnux college and in tho famous Roxbury Latin school, es tablished himself as a lawyer in Bos ton.

"What!" said the mate, stuttering, "put Ins put his arm round your waist like ' ' His courago suddenly forsook him. "Liko what?" inquired tho girl, with superb innocence. "Like that," said the mate, manfully- "That'll do," said Miss Cringle soft ly, "that'll do.
