THE UNEXPECTED

`I saw a nold gent, Uncle-perfect gentleman. And 'e told me all about it. Mos' respectable 'e was. Said 'is name was Watson and Bean-leastways 'e was Bean. Said it was lef' me'-Kipps suddenly dived into his breast pocket- `by my Grandfather '
The old people started.
Old Kipps uttered an exclamation and wheeled round towards the mantelshelf, above which the daguerrotype of his lost younger sister smiled its fading smile upon the world.
'Waddy, 'is name was,' said Kipps, with his hand stilldeep in his pocket. `It was 'is son was my father '
'Waddy!' said old Kipps.
'Waddy!' said Mrs. Kipps.
`She'd never say,' said old Kipps.
There was a long silence.
Kipps fumbled with a letter, a crumpled advertisement and three banknotes. He hesitated between these items.
`Why! That young chap what was arsting questions-' said old Kipps, and regarded his wife with an eye of amazement.
`Must 'ave been,' said Mrs. Kipps.
`Must 'ave been,' said old Kipps.
`James,' said Mrs. Kipps, in an awe-stricken voice. `After all-perhaps-- it's true!'
" Ow much did you say? 'asked old Kipps. "Ow much did you say 'e'd lef' you, me b'y?'
It was thrilling, though not quite in the way Kipps had expected. He answered almost meekly across the meagre suPPer-things, with his documentary evidence in his hand,
'Twelve 'undred pounds. Proximately, he said. Twelve 'undred pounds a year. 'E made 'is will jest before 'e died -not mor'n a month ago. When 'e was dying, 'e seemed to change like, Mr. Bean said. 'E'd never forgiven 'is son, never-not till then. 'Is son 'ad died in Australia, years atld years ago, and then 'e 'adn't forgiven 'im. You know 's son what was my father. But jest when 'e was ill and one seemed to get worried like, and longing for some pr ~,°f 's own. And 'e told Mr. Bean it was 'im that had prevented them marrying. So 'e thought. That's 'ow it all come about
