THE NEW CONDITIONS

`Well, it's all different. Every bit of it. I'll tell you. You remember what you said about a butterfly. You got confused, you know-Old Meth. Kept calling the beetle a butterfly, and that set me off. I've made it quite different. Quite different. Instead of Popplewaddle-thundering good farce-name that, you know, for all that it came from a Visitors' List-instead of Popplewaddle getting a beetle down his neck and rushing about, I've made him a collector-collects butterflies, and this one you know's a rare one. Comes in at window, centre!' Chitterlow began to illustrate with appropriate gestures. `Pop rushes about after it. Forgets he mustn't let on he's in the house. After that Tells'em.Rarebutterfly,worth lots ofmoney. Some are, you know. Every one's on to it after that. Butterfly can't get out of the room; every time it comes out to have a try, rush, and scurry. Well, I've worked on that. Only '
He came very close to Kipps. He held up one hand horizontally and tapped it in a striking and confidential manner with the fingers of the other. `Something else,' he said. `That's given me a Real Ibsenish Touch-like the Wild Duck. You know that woman-I've made her lighter -and she sees it. When they're chasing the butterfly the third time, she's on! She looks. "That's me!" she says. Bif! Pestered Butterfly. She's the Pestered Butterfly. It's legitimate. Much more legitimate than the Wild Duckwhere there isn't a duck !
`Knock 'em! The very title ought to knock 'em. I've been working like a horse at it .... You'll have a goldmine in that quarter share, Kipps .... I don't mind. It's suited me to sell it, and suited you to buy. Bif!'
Chitterlow interrupted his discourse to ask, `You haven't any brandy in the house, have you? Not to drink, you know. But I want just an eggcupful to pull me steady. My liver's a bit queer .... It doesn't matter if you haven't. Not a bit. I'm like that. Yes, whisky'll do. Better!'
Kipps hesitated for a moment, then turned and fumbled in the cupboard of his sideboard. Presently he disinterred a bottle of whisky and placed it on the table. Then he put out first one bottle of soda-water, and, after the hesitation of a moment, another. Chitterlow picked up the bottle and read the label. `Good old Methuselah,' he said. Kipps handed him the corkscrew, and then his hand fluttered up to his mouth. `I'll have to ring now,' he said, `to get glasses.'
