THE EMPORIUM

'aven't any Capital! How's a draper's shopman to save tlp five hundred pounds even? I tell you it can't be done. You got to stick to Cribs until it's over. I tell you we're in a blessed drain-pipe, and we've got to crawl along it till we die.
The idea that fermented perpetually in the mind of Minton was to `hit the little beggar slap in the eye'-the little beggar being Mr. Shalford-'and see how his blessed System met that.'
This threat filled Kipps with splendid anticipations whenever Shalford went marking off on Minton's department. He would look at Minton and look at Shalford and decide where he would best like Shalford hit .... But for reasons known to himself Shalford never pished and tushed with Minton as he did at the harmless Carshot, and this interesting experiment upon the System was never attempted.

This was to be his life until his days should end. No adventures, no glory, no change, no freedom. Neither-though the force of that came home to him later-might he dream of effectual love and marriage. And there was a terrible something called the `swap,' or `the key of the street,' and `crib hunting,' of which the talk was scanty but sufficient. Night after night he would resolve to enlist, to run away to sea, to set fire to the warehouse, or drown himself, and morning after morning he rose up and hurried downstairs in fear of a sixpenny fine. He would compare his dismal round of servile drudgery with those windy, sunlit days at Littlestone, those windows of happiness shining ever brighter as they receded. The little figure of Ann seemed in all these windows now.
She, too, had happened on evil things. When Kipps went home for the first Christmas after he was bound,
