THE EMPORIUM

social ideal. Afterwards the ladies exchanged `words' upon Sabbatical grounds. In this way was the toga airilis bestowed on Kipps, and he became recognised as a suitable object for that Platonic Eros whose blunted darts devastate even the very highest class establishments. In this way, too, did that pervading ambition of the British young man to be, if not a`gentleman,' at least mistakably like one, take root in his heart.
He took to these new interests with a quite natural and personal zest. He became initiated into the mysteries of `flirting' and-at a slightly later stage and with some leading hints from Pearce, who was of a communicative disposition in these matters of the milder forms of `spooning.' Very soon he was engaged. Before two years were out he had been engaged six times, and was beginning to be rather a desperate fellow, so far as he could make out. Desperate, but quite gentlemanly, be it understood, and without let or hindrance to the fact that he was in four brief lessons `prepared' by a distant-mannered and gloomy young curate, and `confirmed' a member of the Established Church.
The engagements in drapery establishments do not necessarily involve a subsequent marriage. They are essentially more refined, less coarsely practical, and altogether less binding than the engagements of the vulgar rich. These young ladies do not like not to be engaged, it is so unnatural, and Mr. Kipps was as easy to get engaged to as one could wish. There are, from the young lady's point of view, many conveniences in being engaged. You get an escort for Church and walks, and so forth. It is not quite the thing to walk abroad with a`feller', much more to `spoon' with him, when he is neither one's fiance nor an adopted brother; it is considered either a little fast or else as savouring of the 'walking-out' habits of the servant girls. Now, such is the sweetness of human charity, that the shop young lady in England has just the same horror of doing anything that savours of the servant girl as the lady journalist, let us say, has of anything savouring of the shop-girl or the really quite nice young lady has ofanything savouring of any sort of girl who has gone down into the economic battlefield to earn herself a living .... But the very deepest of these affairs was still among the shallow Places of love, at best it was paddling where it is decreed
