Mlea Lely and her refractory niece were q»-ndlng a few early summer weeks at Bournemouth In pursuit of peace snd pleasure -a quest made nee- etoary by the Severe attack of bron chitis snd Influenza which bad laid the elder lady low throughout tbe winter. Tbe eubjrot of the younger Mina I-ely's unpremeditated attack was a curious looking parson who bad wan- dr red across tlie o|ien space In front of the buudatand In search of a vacant chair. He bad a long thin face, wore an Inverness coat of ancient date, and carried a small black leather bag. Yet be was young, and should bare taken some Interest In bto personal appear ance. / "He has eyebrows like—like tbe pause mark« In music!” tjm girl murmured, naughtily. In defense of her sweeping criticism of tbe “eloth." The older Miss I-ely breathed a slgb as the first moreeau for the afternoon was brought to a conclusion. "He can't possibly help hla •eyebrows." she said, with mild reproach In her voice. "And, Hilda, do be more careful! He might have tieard you. dear!” "But be didn't; and a ml«« Is as good as a mile, you know, aunty!" r«markml Hilda, with a little laugh. Somehow ttie younger Miss Lely felt she bad a right to n grievance Just at tills time. Her family bad lately tieen bent on coercing ber Into marriage with a clergyman who. Recording to all ac counts, seemed to have the virtues of all the ages rolled Into hla hamteome person without any of the vtcM. Hilda bad seen him. It was some family "arrangement" which the fam ily, exclusive of Hilda, hiqied would "come off" some day. Tlie Rev. Ronald Martyn's father and old Mr. I»*ly had always been tbe greatest of friends, and It seemed only natural to all con cerned, except the Infants themselves, that the son of one and the daughter pf the other should unite the families In an Indissoluble band. There were certain obstacles In the way—princi pally tiw fact that the Martyns emi grated shortly afterwards to Australia, while the Ielys stayed In the old coun try ; but they were felt to be not In surmountable Impedimenta. Ronald was due In England on a long visit to some distant relatives, and tbe meeting fraught with so much Impor tance was to take plaro aa soon as i*os- ■Iblf. But ere It took place Hilda hud been curried off to Bournemouth by her aunt, possibly ns much for her own good as for tlie old lady's health. "Clergymen," said Mias Lely the eld er, an hour later, as aunt nnd niece wended tbelr way towards tlielr favor ite teaehop In Ohl Christopher rond— “all clergymen are not alike. I presume that you are allowing your thoughts to dwell too much on Mr. Martyn." "I sni not allowing them." returned the girl, with a pretty little grimace. "They take French leave! Aunt Ellen” —»he slipped tier arm within the elder lady's with a confiding little geatur*— "»tunild yon have liked to have your future all inapi>ed out for you when you were my ageY’ Aunt Ellen did not reply, and Hilda was dlsappolntcl. "1 shall not go out again.” Miss I*ely aald, when they reached their lodg Ings. "If you want to go and hear more of (I k * hand this evening. Hilda, I will ask Mrs. Hunt to let her Mary take you!” Hilda's eyes sparkled. "I am never tires! of listening to that hand,” she said. ‘And I'd love to go. aunty I" And she went Alas, yet another clergyman caught her eye. It was an old and decrepit one this time, who seemed to tie enjoying the music so much that he went to sleep with ■ rapt expression on bls face and not a thought about falling off the end oT tbe seat A tall, falr-halred man opportte. with llmba like Herculae end the face of an adonla, strode acrons tbe grate and propped him up Just In time. Hilda, tkaaa her chair by Mrs. Hunt*» Mary, viewed the whole episode with approval. And tbe Imago of tbe hero thereof remained In ber meAiory when she laid ber bead on ber pillow that night Ho was not a clergyman, ao sbe felt she really could think of him with out harm. A day or two later tbe aceno waa ncalled to her. She and ber aunt were crossing Old Christchurch road when a motor car wblzxed round a corner with out any warning. Tbe elder Miss Lely gasped; tho younger pushed ber with all ber might out of tbe way of tbe ad vancing monster; and waa In ber turn thrust out of danger by a mighty hand. There waa a a hlxxlng •ensatlon In her ears; for one awful moment tbo street ran round, and tbe ground rose up to- »•ard tier and refuaed to stop—then sbe pulled herself together with a frantic effort, and found herself clutching a lamp poet, while someone muttered In her ear: "By Jove! That waa a close shave!" Rite looked up hastily. The hero of a few nights before was «landing over tier with an anxious expression on hla clean shaven face and In bis deep blue eyes.

'The gentleman Is to go and be thanked by Miss Lely." tbo okl »roman said, usbenng them both into the par lor. And thanked be was, though Mine Lely did not know bls name.

While at tbo same moment, in side tbe bouse, Mtoe Lely was wonder ing to herself If she bad seemed too grateful—for tbe young man waa cer tainly very handsome, and. well, glrto (Hilda especially) were so terribly un practical. There was no knowing what Hilda would Imagine! So for tbe rest of the day Miso Lely Instilled Australian and clerical thoughts into ber young niece's mind as an antidote, and Hilda wondered why any clergyman had ever been born, and why anyone bad ever taken tbe trouble to discover Australia! Ml»» leJy worshipped at St. Peter’a, and duly carried Hilda off to that par ticular place of worship the following Sunday. The Fates, however, were ■gainst ber, for they had not long taken tbelr places when the tall figure of tbe hero slipped Into a ;*ww Just opposite, and fixed bls blue eyes nearly all tbe service through Just below Hilda’s pret ty chiffon hat Tbe elder M1 m Lely prayed with tbe moot Intense vigor for tbe speedy re turn of the prospective bridegroom; and Hilda, whose thoughts certainly Rtrsyeil further than ber eyes, sat de murely by the aide of tbe austere little spinster, and deckled that certain tall figures looked equally well In gray tweed or black. He raised bls bat to the ladles as be passed them on tbe way out, and Miss Ellen, torn between a feeling of Ingrat itude and terror for consequences, smil ed at him so sweetly that be stayed hla steps.
