KNIGHT-ERRANTRY A LA MODE

His meditations were interrupted by Allerton.
" Marrable, eyes front ! And fill up your glass. Hang it, drink fair !"
Hughie turned and regarded his guest. The greater part of a magnum of vitriolic champagne had disappeared down that gentleman's throat. His eye had brightened, and now twinkled facetiously as he surveyed first Hughie and then the girl at the piano.
" Une petite piece de tout droit-eh, what?" h remarked.
Hughie, beginning to understand why his companion was now swabbing decks instead of ruling ancestral acres, nodded shortly.
Allerton noticed his host's momentary distance of manner, and leaned across the table with an air of contrition.
" I'm afraid," he said apologetically, "that I'm getting most infernally full. You see how it is with me, don't you? I'm that sort of bloke. Always have been, from a nipper. Thas-that's why I'm here. It's a pity. And the worst of it is," he added, in a sudden burst of candour, "that I'm going to get much fuller. It's a long time since I tasted this." He touched his glass. "It isn't served out on the Orinoco. Do you-ermind ? "
Hughie, with a queer felling of compassion, smiled reassuringly, and ordered another bottle. If Allerton was about to get drunk, he should get drunk like a gentleman for once in a way.
