THE EMPORIUM

emerging in the shop again among a litter of toys and ,17at are called `fancy articles,' Shalford withdrew a hand from beneath his coat-tails to indicate an overhead change carrier. He entered into elaborate calculations to show how many minutes in one year were saved thereby, and lost himself among the figures. `Seven turns eight seven nine-was it? Or seven eight nine? Now, now! Why, when I was a boy your age I c'd do a sum like that as soon as hear it. We'll soon get y'r into better shape than that. Make you Fishent. Well, y'r must take my word it comes to pounds and pounds saved in the year-pounds and pounds. System ! System everywhere. Fishency.' He went on murmuring Fishency and System at intervals for some time. They passed into a yard, and Mr. Shalford waved his hand to his three delivery vans, all striped green and yellow-' uniform-green, yell'r -System.' All over the premises were pinned absurd little cards, `This door locked after 7.30. By order, Edwin Shalford,' and the like.
Mr. Shalford always wrote `By Order,' though it conveyed no earthly meaning to him. He was one of those people who collect technicalities upon them as the Reduvius bug collects dirt. He was the sort of man who is not only ignorant but absolutely incapable of English. When he wanted to say he had a sixpenny-ha'penny longcloth to sell, he put it thus to startled customers: `Can DO you one six half, if y'like.' He always omitted pronouns and articles and so forth; it seemed to him the very essence of the efficiently business-like. His only preposition was `as' or the compound `as per.' He abbreviated every word he could; he would have considered himself the laughing-stock of Wood Street if he had chanced to spell socks in any way but `sox.' But, on the other hand, if he saved words here he wasted them there; he never acknowledged an order that was not an esteemed favour, nor sent a pattern without begging to submit it. He never stipulated for so many months' credit, but bought in November `as Jan.' It was not only words he abbreviated in his London communications. In paying his wholesalers his `System' admitted of a constant error in the discount of a penny or twopence, and it `facilitated business,' he alleged, to ignore odd pence in the cheques he wrote. His ledger clerk was so struck with the beauty of this part of the System that he
