THE LITTLE SHOP

'I give her a lot of start,' said Kipps apologetically. `It wasn't a proper race.' And so the subject was dismissed. But Kipps was distrait for some seconds perhaps, and the mischief had begun in him.

§ 4
They proceeded to the question of how two accomplished Hurons might most satisfactorily spend the morning. Manifestly their line lay straight along the lane to the sea. `There's a new wreck,' said Sid, `and my!-don't it stink ust!'
`Stink?'
`Fair make you sick. It's rotten wheat.'
They fell to talking of wrecks, and so came to ironclads and wars and such-like manly matters. Half-way to the wreck Kipps made a casual, irrelevant remark.
`Your sister ain't a bad sort,' he said off-handedly.
`I clout her a lot,' said Sidney modestly; and, after a pause, the talk reverted to more suitable topics.
The new wreck was full of rotting grain, and stank abominably, even as Sid had said. This was excellent. They had it all to themselves. They took possession of it in force, at Sid's suggestion, and had speedily to defend it against enormous numbers of imaginary `natives,' who were at last driven off by loud shouts of bang bang, and vigorous thrusting and shoving of sticks. Then, also at Sid's direction, they sailed with it into the midst of a combined French, German, and Russian fleet, demolishing the combination unassisted, and having descended to the beach, clambered up the side and cut out their own vessel in brilliant style; they underwent a magnificent shipwreck (with vocalised thunder) and floated 'waterlogged'-so Sid insisted-upon an exhausted sea.
These things drove Ann out of mind for a time. But at last, as they drifted without food or water upon a stagnant ocean, haggard-eyed, chins between their hands, looking in vain for a sail, she came to mind again abruptly.
`It's rather nice 'aving sisters,' remarked one perishing mariner.
Sid turned round and regarded him thoughtfully.
`Not it!' he said.
`No?,
