No action having been taken by the

to proceed independently with the cele- do

ON A JAUNTING CAR. of
BY AGNE F. JdmHNTO. Th
T was a June a
iº 4f' morning in wo
Cork. Miss do
Briggs and her
niece had left sai
, the rest of their ha
party at the ho- shi
tel, to recover th
from the effects
4 of a rough pas- wi
sage, and had shl
started out to ba
explore the usl
quaint old town.
The jaunting car rattled along gS
through the crooked streets, and ab
turned into a wide, smooth avenue, to]
whose hawthorn hedges were white tri
with blossoms, and whose wayside an
trees covered it with a cool, deep w
shade; then back again into the ,w
crooked streets, where a detachment th
of soldiers passed them. "Look l" to

"there are some Highlanders I" vo
A band came next, followed by ser- m,
eral carriages, while a noisy rabble of an
hooting, barefoot children and bois- re
terous men and women straggled after. to
"What is the matter?" she asked of wi
the driver, who had stopped his horse fu
to lot the procession pass. W]
"It's O'Brien, miss," he explained. he

day, and they're fearful av a riot, to

Emily, happening to look across the gi
street, saw a man, evidently a tourist,
hastily shutting up a small camera.
"Auntie," she almost gasped, "IC
actually believe that man has been
i taking a photograph of us I"
'k Miss Briggs looked quickly, but they e
of had turned a corner, and he was out of
sa ight. "Well, it can't be helped," she a
At said laughingly, but with an indignant
'3 pink flushing up into her cheeks. "It w
serves us right for making a spectacle
u of ourselves by getting on to such an
i outlandish conveyance."
i On the following day, while Miss
Briggs sat alone in the parlor of the
t Imperial Hdeel, busily engaged with
her journal, Emily entered, her hat b
awry and her face glowing. b
"Look " she cried breathlessly. t
"Here is a sketch I made this after
noon, auunti I did it in sepia. And
oh, i've had sncA an interesting ex
peri>nce 1 We all went up to Shan- b
don churchyard, and old Mr. Lamb 6
took me up in the tower to read the v
inscription on the bells. When we
came down again, you couldn't guess
who was standing in the churchyard,
by Father Prout's tomb."
Miss Briggs held the sketch off at
arm's length, surveying it critically,
and shook her head. *
"Well, it was that man who took
our picture yesterday. As soon as he
saw me, he came directly towards me.
He took off his hat with as friendly a
smile as if we had always known each
other, and said, 'Pardon me, miss, are
you not the young lady whom I saw
yesterday on a jaunting car while the d
procession was crossing the bridge?'
I was so amazed I did not know what
reto say, and he began at once to apolo
. gize and explain. He said he was out
with his camera, taking pictures of
S interesting types of Irish character,
d. and was attracted by our coachman's
face. He paid no attention to us un
la- til we were driving away. Then he
saw me, but did not notice you par
ticularly. While he was developing
the picture, that afternoon, he was al
most startled, he told me, ie your fea
tures gradually appeared on the plate.
He said: 'They bear such a striking re
semblance to one I klewyears ago.
Will you allow me to ask if the lady
mt with you was a Miss Briggs? Miss
Caroline Briggs ?'"
Emily paused to note the effect of
Sher words, and Miss Briggs looked up
Swith lively interest depicted on every
"Go on I" she demanded.
"Just then Mr. Lumb came hurry
ing up and slapped him on the back,
and said, 'Hullo, Fritzie, old boy I Is
it really you?' It must have been
S'Friszie, old boy,' for they began talk
ing about old times, and forgot my
- existence ever so long. Then Mr.
Lumb introduced him-Howe, or
Power, or some such name. He's
r stopping at our hotel, and is going to
t join our party till we reach Belfast."
S Emily paused to observe the effect.
Miss Brigge opened her month as if to
e say something, gave a little gasp and
closed it again.
"It's Frederick PowellI" she de
clared with an air of conviction. "I
know it l Yes, I knew him fifteen
Syears ago." She looked out of the
window a moment as if considering,
end then went on in her concise, mat
ter-of-faot way, "We were to have
been married then, but we had a quar
k rel and the engagement was broken off.
ce It was a good thing. We were both
h- high strung and obstinate, and never
er, could have learned to agree."
Ld Miss Briggs gave this little bit of
u personal history as unconeernedly as if
she were speaking of ttie ancient
. Greeks, and began to gather up her
- writing material Emily looked at her
curiously, wondering if there could
Shave been a spark of sentiment in such
a severely practical nature.
"He showed me the photograph,"
Ssaid Emily, as they climbed the stairs
together. "'It was bad, even for an
amateur. Only the hack ot my head

pushed the doer ,jar and entered the had
parlor, where tie party had congre- out
gated to wait for dinner. T
Dr. Frederick Powell was standing sigt
by a window in animated conversation pasi
with Emily. He scarcely noticed her oa'
aunt's entrance, so engrossed was he wer
with the fair niece. Miss Briggs had fore
been a pretty girl in her day, but the anc
photograph he- had taken, and which
was still fresh in his mind, was that dro
of a wrinkled, faded woman, careless alw
of her attire. He looked up with sur- ity
prise as she advanced toward them. thi:
The brusk independence of manner he
had expected to see had given place to Bri
a stately dignity. She was one of those
n women for whom a becoming dress air,
a does wonders. int
"I'm glad to see you I" they both mih
st said in the same breath, and shook stu
ir hands as if the most platonic of friend- pic
)-ships had always existed between kis
r them. wo
Miss Briggs was not so well pleased
' with her survey. "He's getting stout," "I
d she thought critically, "ahd a trifle to
to bald. He's not the handsome man he ral
e used to be."
Emily was charmed with Dr. Powell. col
ig She found him entertaining and agree- ply
Ld able. He praised her sketches. He ma
, told her interesting incidents of his it
te travels in many lands, and amusing
e anecdotes of his professional life. be

volved in her solitary orbit-a trifle ea

out to make a farewell visit to Blarney,

in this, net being an excellent horse- de
