FLOTSAM AND JETSAM

"He's back from the office. Don't think it's funny if I don't speak to you. If he thought I liked having you here he'd turn you out tomorrow."
She said these words in a whisper and slipped back into the house. Skelton was startled. It was a strange house he had come into in a strange manner. He went into the overcrowded sitting-room and there found his host. He had been worried by the evident poverty of the establishment and he felt that the Granges could ill afford even the small expense he must be putting them to. But he had already formed the impression that Grange was a quick-tempered, susceptible man and he did not know how he would take an offer to help. He made up his mind to risk it.
" Look here," he said to him, "it looks as though I might have to inflict myself on you for several days, I'd be so much more comfortable if you'd let me pay for my board and lodging."
" Oh, that's all right, your lodging costs nothing, the house belongs to the mortgagees, and your board doesn't come to much."
" Well, there are drinks anyway and I've had to come down on your stores of tobacco and cigarettes."
" It's not more than once a year that anyone comes up here, and then it's only the D.O. or someone like that-besides, when one's as broke as I am nothing matters much."
" Well, then, will you take my camp equipment? I shan't be wanting it any more, and if you'd like one of my guns, I'd be only too glad to leave it with you."
Grange hesitated. There was a glimmer of cupidity in those small, cunning eyes of his.
" If you'd let me have one of your guns you'd pay for your board and lodging over and over again." "That's settled then."
They began to talk over the whisky and sparkler with which, following the Eastern habit, they celebrated the setting of the sun. Discovering that they both played chess they had a game.
