CHAPTER XIII

Taunton ignored him. " Any advance on five shillings ? Five and sixpence, did I hear you say Leighton. I accept your bid." Leighton Minor smiled sheepishly. He would have to ask for some more journey money. " Five and sixpence from Leighton Minor. Going. Going. Gone," and he smashed a clothes brush on the table. " There you are Leighton, and I congratulate you."
" Thanks, Taunton." He took the prints and departed.
" The next lot," said Taunton, " is literature, which throws unexpected light on the study of the classics." General laughter among the audience. " I will therefore offer it separately. First we have the eminent and highly esteemed Mr. Kelly." Shouts of applause. " Author of the series known as Kelly's keys to the classics. Virgil, Aeneid, Book two. Now, gentlemen, read Mr. Kelly and improve your order cards. What am I bid ?"
" Two bob," said Warburton.
" Two and six," said Featherstone.
" What, half a crown from a member of the debate ?" said Taunton. " The debate should save their half-crowns for other occasions." The lower boys laughed appreciatively.
" Three shillings," said Warburton. " Three and six," said Featherstone. " Four shillings."
" Four and six." The room was temporarily quiet. Mr. Kelly might have been an important Rembrandt.
" Any advance on four and six ?" said Taunton. There were hurried whisperings in the corner.
" Will you let me use it ?" said Warburton.
" All right, when I don't want it."
" Any advance on four and sixpence ? Going. Going. Gone to Mr. Featherstone, and if you get a distinction in trials I'm afraid I shall have to write to m'tutor about it," said Taunton.
Other works by Mr. Kelly and Dr. Giles, author of the equally famous series. Dr. Giles's classical translations were knocked down for double their value, as the booksellers
