CHITTERLOW

matches!' he said; and Kipps had an impression of a passage in the transitory pink flare and the bicyclist disappearing into a farther room. Kipps was so much interested by these things that for the time he forgot his injuries altogether.
An interval, and Kipps was dazzled by a pink-shaded kerosene lamp. `You go in,' said the red-haired man, `and I'll bring in the bike,' and for a moment Kipps was alone in the lamp-lit room. He took in rather vaguely the shabby ensemble of the little apartment, the round table covered with a torn, red, glass-stained cover on which the lamp stood, a mottled looking-glass over the fireplace reflecting this, a disused gas-bracket, an extinct fire, a number of dusty postcards and memoranda stuck round the glass, a dusty, crowded paper-rack on the mantel with a number of cabinet photographs, a table littered with papers and cigarette ash, and a siphon of soda-water. Then the cyclist reappeared, and Kipps saw his blue-shaved, rather animated face, and bright, reddish-brown eyes for the first time. He was a man, perhaps, ten years older than Kipps, but his beardless face made them in a way contemporary.
`You behaved all right about that policeman, anyhow,' he repeated as he came forward.
`I don't see 'ow else I could 'ave done,' said Kipps, quite modestly. The cyclist scanned his guest for the first time, and decided upon hospitable details.
`We'd better let that mud dry a bit before we brush it. Whisky there is, good old Methuselah, Canadian Rye; and there's some brandy that's all right. Which'll you have?'
`I dunno,' said Kipps, taken by surprise; and then seeing no other course but acceptance, `Well, whisky, then.'
'Right you are, old boy; and if you'll take my advice you'll take it neat. I may not be a particular judge of this sort of thing, but I do know old Methuselah pretty well. Old Methuselah-four stars. That's me! Good old Harry Ghitterlow, and good old Methuselah. Leave 'em together. Bif! He's gone!'
He laughed loudly, looked about him, hesitated, and retired, leaving Kipps in possession of the room, and free to make a more precise examination of its contents.
