THE LITTLE SHOP

explained, he wore a newspaper tactically adjusted during the transaction, and really it didn't hurt him at all.... And Mrs. Pornick put her head out of the shop door suddenly and threatened Kipps as he passed.

'Cavendish Academy,' the school that had won the limited choice of Kipps' vanished mother, was established in a battered private house in the part pf Hastings remotest from the sea; it was called an Academy for Young Gentlemen, and many of the young gentlemen had parents in `India' and other unverifiable places. Others were the sons of credulous widows, anxious, as Kipps' mother had been, to get something a little `superior' to a board school education as cheaply as possible, and others, again, were sent to demonstrate the dignity of their parents and guardians. And of course there were boys from France.
Its `principal' was a lean, long creature of indifferent digestion and temper, who proclaimed himself on a giltlettered board in his front area, George GardenWoodrow, F.S.Sc., letters indicating that he had paid certain guineas for a bogus diploma. A bleak, white-washed outhouse constituted his schoolroom, and the scholastic quality of its carved and worn desks and forms was enhanced by a slippery blackboard and two large, yellow, out-of-date maps-one of Africa and the other of Wiltshire-that he had picked up cheap at a sale. There were other maps and globes in his study, where he interviewed inquiring parents, but these his pupils never saw. And in a glass cupboard in the passage were several shillingsworth of test-tubes and chemicals, a tripod, a glass retort, and a damaged Bunsen burner, manifesting that the `Scientific laboratory' mentioned in the prospectus was no idle boast.
This prospectus, which was in dignified but incorrect English, laid particular stress on the sound preparation for a commercial career given in the Academy, but the army, navy, and civil service were glanced at in an ambiguous sentence. There was something vague in the prospectus about 'examinational successes'-though Woodrow, of course, disapproved of 'cram'-and a declaration that the curriculum included `art,' `modern foreign languages,'
