THE ROUSING OF MR. BRADEGAR

getting their living, and they wanted a lot, by watching like a pike to see if the other fellow couldn't be snapped up, you couldn't turn off the trick when you came home. You'd got into the way of striking as quickly, as surely, as automatically as a sidewinder. Well, they wouldn't stand for it. So here he was now with his heart to watch, and nothing else. He'd done well and, he'd hoped, as soon as he was through with getting on, he'd get liked. He'd do the things-he'd have time-that get you liked: the big, generous things with which the big, easy, famous men convince everyone, everyone who now wants to forget that they were ever small, keen, mean. They're formidable still, of course, but in such a grand way. They just go on getting their way, but with no more than an inflection of the voice-they don't have so much as to raise a finger any longer. The old proverbial success of success. But- "Where are the monuments of those who were drowned?" "Nothing succeeds like succession: nothing succeeds like surcease:" The phrase "declined" itself, as one used to say of verbs in school grammar lessons. ... He was trying to memorize the whole conjugation. There was only a little time. The clock above the desks showed that the preparation hour was nearly over. He had learned all the other irregular verbs but this silly one: "Success, succession, surcease"-How did the rest of it go? "Success, succession, surcease, decease, death, cremation"-that was it-not a very irregular verb, after all: you could tell each declension from the one before pretty well. He'd be able to remember it when called out to say it in front of the class. He looked up at the clock again. It was just going to strike the hour but, instead, it remarked in a sharper tone of voice, "Wake up!"
