THE CALLERS

§3
He let himself in with his latch-key. He went moodily into the dining-room and got out the plans to look at them. He had a vague hope that there would prove to be only ten bedrooms. But he found there were still eleven. He became aware of Ann standing over him. `Look 'ere, Artie!' said Ann.
He looked up and found her holding a number of white oblongs.
His eyebrows rose.
`It's Callers,' said Ann.
He put his plans aside slowly, and took and read the cards in silence, with a sort of solemnity. Callers ! then perhaps he wasn't to be left out of the world after all. Mrs. G. Porrett Smith; Miss Porrett Smith; Miss Mabel Porrett Smith; and two smaller cards of the Rev. G. Porrett Smith. `Lor!' he said. `Clergy!'
`There was a lady,' said Ann, `and two growed-up gels -all dressed up!'
'And 'im?'
`There wasn't no 'im.'
`Not ?' He held out the little card.
`No. There was a lady and two young ladies.' 'But-these cards! Whad they go and leave these two
little cards with the Rev. G. Smith on for? Not if'e wasn't
with 'em.'
" E wasn't with 'em.'
`Not a little chap-dodgin' about be'ind the others? And didn't come in?'
`I didn't see no gentleman with them at all,' said Ann.
'Rum V said Kipps. A half-forgotten experience came back to him. `I know,' he said, waving the reverend gentleman's card, "e give 'em the slip; that's what he'd done. Gone off while they was rapping before you let 'em in. It's a fair call any'ow.' He felt a momentary base satisfaction at his absence. `What did they talk about, Ann?'
There was a pause. `I didn't let 'em in,' said Ann.
He looked up suddenly and perceived that something unusual was the matter with Ann. Her face was flushed, her eyes were red and hard.
`Didn't let 'em in?'
