THE UNEXPECTED

Old Kipps stood in the shop door with the banjo in his hand, breathing nosily. `The fact is, Aunt, I've 'ad a bit of luck.'
,you ain't been backin' gordless 'orses, Artie?' she asked.
`No fear.'
`It's a draw he's been in,' said old Kipps, still panting from the impact of the portmanteau, `it's a dratted draw. Jest look here, Molly. He's won this 'ere trashy banjer and throwd up his situation on the strength of it-that's what he's done. Goin' about singing. Dash and plunge. Jest the very fault poor Pheamy always 'ad. Blunder right in, and no one mustn't stop 'er!V
'You ain't thrown up your place, Artie, 'ave you?' said Mrs. Kipps.
Kipps perceived his opportunity. `I 'ave,' he said. `I've throwed it up.'
`What for?' said old Kipps.
'So's to learn the banjo!'
`Goo Lord!' said old Kipps, in horror to find himself verified.
`I'm going about playing,' said Kipps, with a giggle.
`Goin' to black my face, Aunt, and sing on the beach. I'm going to 'ave a most tremenjous lark and earn any amount of money-you see. Twenty-six fousand pounds I'm going to earn just as easy as nothing!P
'Kipps,' said Mrs. Kipps, `he's been drinking!'
They regarded their nephew across the supper table with long faces. Kipps exploded with laughter, and broke out again when his aunt shook her head very sadly at him. Then suddently he fell grave. He felt he could keep it up no longer. `It's all right, Aunt. Reely. I ain't mad, and I ain't been drinking. I been lef' money. I been left twenty-six fousand pounds.'
Pause.
`And you thrown up your place?' said old Kipps. `Yes,' said Kipps, `rather!'
`And bort this banjer, put on your best noo trousers, and come right on 'ere?'
'Well', said Mrs. Kipps, 'I never did!'
`These ain't my noo trousers, Aunt,' said Kipps, gretfully, `My noo trousers wasn't done.'
`I shouldn't ha' thought that even you could ha' been such a fool as that,' said old Kipps.
