JOHN RUSKIN

can't let you stay till they come; they'd be the death of me."
" Dear me," said the old gentleman, "I'm very sorry ta hear that. How long may I stay?"
" Only till the mutton's done, sir," replied Gluck; "and it's very brown."
Then the old gentleman walked into the kitchen and sat himself down on the hob, with the top of his cap accommodated up the chimney, for it was a great deal too high for the roof.
"You'll soon dry there, sir," said Gluck; and sat down again to turn the mutton. But the old gentleman did not dry there, but went on drip, drip, dripping among the cinders, and the fire fizzed, and sputtered, and began to look very black and uncomfortable. Never was such a cloak; every fold in it ran like a gutter.
" I beg pardon, sir," said Gluck at length, after watching for a quarter of an hour the water spreading in long, quicksilver-like streams over the floor; "may I take your cloak?"
" No, thank you," said the old gentleman.
"Your cap, sir?"
" I am all right, thank you," said the old gentlemah, rather gruffly.
" But-sir-I'm very sorry," said Gluck, hesitatingly; "but-really, sir-you're-putting the fire out."
"It'll take longer to do the mutton, then," replied his visitor, dryly.
Gluck was very much puzzled by the behavior of his guest; it was such a strange mixture of coolness and humility. He turned away at the string meditatively for another five minutes.
" That mutton looks very nice," said the old gentleman at length. "Can't you give me a little bit?"
" Impossible, sir," said Gluck.
