THE BICYCLE MANUFACTURER

`It's not you I'm thinking of, o' man; it's the system. Better you than most people. Still '
He laid both hands on the gate and repeated to himself, `Twelve 'undred a year .... Gee-whiz, Kipps! You'll be a swell !'
`I shan't,' said Kipps, with imperfect conviction. `No fear.'
`You can't 'ave money like that and not swell out. You'll soon be too big to speak to-'ow do they put it?a mere mechanic like me.'
`No fear, Siddee,' said Kipps, with conviction. `I ain't that sort.'
`Ah !' said Sid, with a sort of unwilling scepticism, 'money'll be too much for you. Besides-you're caught by a swell alreadv.'
" Ow d'yer mean?'
`That girl you're going to marry. Masterman says
'Oo's Masterman?'
`Rare good chap, I know-takes my first-floor front room. Masterman says it's always the wife pitches the key. Always. There's no social differences-till women come in.'
`Ah !' said Kipps profoundly. `You don't know.'
Sid shook his head. 'Fancy!' he reflected, `Art Kipps ! .... Twelve 'Undred a Year!'
Kipps tried to bridge that opening gulf. `Remember the Hurons, Sid?'
`Rather,' said Sid.
`Remember that wreck?'
`I can smell it now-sort of sour smell.'
Kipps was silent for a moment, with reminiscent eyes on Sid's still troubled face.
`I say, Sid, 'ow's Ann?'
`She's all right,' said Sid.
`Where is she now?'
`In a place .... Ashford.'
'Oh!'
Sid's face had became a shade sulkier than before.
`The fact is,' he said, `we don't get on very well together. I don't hold with service. We're common people, I suppose, but I don't like it. I don't see why a sister of mine should wait at other people's tables. No. Not even if they got Twelve 'Undred a Year.'
