THE HOUSING PROBLEM

'It's-it's a decent size, o' course.'
Kipps took a flirting look at the drawing and went to the window.
`Look at the cleanin'. Free servants 'il be lost in that louse, Artie.'
'We must lave servants,' said Kipps.
Ann looked despondently at her future residence.
`We got to keep up our position any'ow,' said Kipps, turning towards her. `It stands to reason, Ann, we got a position. Very well! I can't lave you scrubbin' floors. You got to lave a servant, and you got to manage a'ouse. You wouldn't lave me ashamed '
Ann opened her lips and did not speak.
`What?' asked Kipps.
`Nothing,' said Ann, `only I did want it to be a little louse, Artie. I wanted it to be a 'andy little louse, jest for us.'
Kipps' face was suddenly flushed and obstinate. He took up the curiously smelling tracings again. `I'm not agoing to be looked down upon,' he said. `It's not only Uncle I'm thinking of!'
Ann stared at him.
Kipps went on. `I won't lave that young Walshingham Pr instance, sneering and sniffing at me. Making out as if we was all wrong. I see 'im yesterday .... Nor Coote neether. I'm as good-we're as good-whatever's 'appened.'

He looked up and saw Ann's eyes bright with tears. For a moment the two stared at one another.
`We'll lave the big 'ouse,' said Ann, with a gulp. `I didn't think of that, Artie.'
Her aspect was fierce and resolute, and she struggled with emotion. `We'll lave the big 'ouse,' she repeated. `They shan't say I dragged you down wiv me-none of them shan't say that. I've thought--- I've always been afraid of that.'
Kipps looked again at the plan, and suddenly the grand house had become very grand indeed. He blew.
`No, Artie. None of them shan't say that,' and, with something blind in her motions, Ann tried to turn the plan round to her ....
