`It 'as,' said Kipps. He made no further remark to the old gentleman for a space, but looked with a little less certitude at the house....
`I got ' he said, and stopped.
`It's no good telling you if you don't believe,' he said.
The old gentleman, after a struggle with himself, decided not to have a fit. `Try that game on with me,' he panted. `Give you in charge.'
`What game?'
`Wasn't born yesterday,' said the old gentleman, and blew. `Besides,' he added, `look at you!'
`I know you,' said the old gentleman, and coughed shortly and nodded to the horizon, and coughed again.
Kipps looked dubiously from the house to the old gentleman and back to the house. Their conversation, he gathered, was over.

He looked over his shoulder as if in appeal to the old gentleman, then turned and went his way. The old gentleman was so evidently past all reason !
He hung for a moment some distance along the parade, as though some invisible string was pulling him back. When he could no longer see the house from the pavement he went out into the road. Then with an effort he snapped the string.

It really was all right.
He replaced the coins with grave precaution, and went his way with a sudden briskness. It was all right-he had it now-he was a rich man at large. He went up a street and round a corner and along another street, and started towards the Pavilion, and changed his mind and came round back, resolved to go straight to the Emporium and tell them all.
He was aware of some one crossing a road far off ahead of him, some one curiously relevant to his present extraor
