"It is not my private car," answered
"Perhaps we ought to introdnee our

of England. My friend is Lord Bere

"You noticed we looked at you as

"I thought you looked at me," she
"Going far?" Lord Bareford asked.
"About an hour farther," she said.
"How far do you go?"
"I suppose you have been doing the
West? All of the English aristocrats
do that first of all. Catch anything?"
"How lovely," she cried. "And you,
Mr. Rothschild, what did you catch?"
"A cold," he told her.

Lord Bereford choked.

"I wish you were going all the way

"Wealthy enough to do the polite
thing now and then," said Mr. Roths
child. "Yes, indeed," chimed in Lord Bere
ford, "If there is any refrerhmcnt
you . I beg your purdou!"
"Oh, I don't mind a little thing like
that," she said "The next station is
only ten minutes off. You eun get
lovely fruit there. And such roses."
"Now," said" Mr. Rothschild, "you
are the sort of young lady I like. No
stand-off nonsense about you. I should
think you'd have hundreds of ad
mirers." "Not so many," she replied demurely.
"You mean you're engaged to be
married?" he arked.
She burst out laughing.
"I should think not," she said.
"By the way," broke in Lord Bere
ford, who did not like her to be mo
nopolized like this, "you haven't told
us your name."
"Try Jones," she said.
"Miss Jones," he went on. "I "
"My Lord," she interrupted, "How
quickly you catch at a name. How
nice it sounds to say 'My Lord.' Of
course neither of you are married?"
"No," they said, together.
"You're like a chorus on the stage,"
she said. "See, we are slowing up.
This is the station I spoke of. We stop
here seven minutes."
She went out of the cart followed by
the two men-.
The woman with the children turned
to the old woman in black.
"Aint it shameful?" she said. "And
she's dressed real expensive," and
looked at her own shabby garb.
"If I had a daughter like that "
and the old woman in black talked.

The woman with the children looked I
confused ; she had said so much to the
passenger in front of her. Miss Jones
had gone to the old woman in black
and handed her the roses.
"I know you have had sorrow," she
said, gently. "Please take these." j
The old woman's eyes filled.
"My only son," she said. "I've been
out to his funeral."
"Yes, dear," Miss Jones said and
pressed her hand.
"Then she went back to take her
seat. The two men were furious.
"Are you aware, Lord Bereford said
"that you " '
"That I seteoted the very finest
roses?" she interposed. "Oh, yes. They
cost you $20, and Mr. Rothschild's fruit
was $15, 1 think. It was lovely of you."
Mr. Rothschild was glowering.
"Of course you meant the things for
me," she laughed. "Soma men think
women are such geese. One thing, I
know you'll never tell your wives.
Husht Why, John!"
She had risen as a portly gentleman
entered the car with the conductor.
"Wherein the world did you come

said. "My car was attached at the hist
"How sweet of you!" she said.
First let me introduce Lord Bereford
and Mr. Rothschild. They have been
very attentive to me."
The portly gentleman nodded stiffly.
"Come 1" he said.
She tripped down the car in front of
him. She spoke to the old woman in
black and to the women with the' chil
dren, stopping to give each child a
bright piece of money.
At the car door she looked back at
Lord Bereford and Mr. Rothschilds,
There was a twinkle in her eves which
