PART I - CHAPTER IV
THE FATHER


astride on the platform of the roundabouts, and slop,',,,, backwards, his mouth distended with a row of fingers, he whistled astonishingly to the coarse row of the organ, and his whistling sounded clear, like the flight of a wild goose high over the chimney-tops, as he was carried round and round. A little fat man with an ugly swelling on his chest stood screaming from a filthy booth to a crowd of urchins, bidding them challenge a big, stolid young man who stood with folded arms, his fists pushing out his biceps. On being asked if he would undertake any of these prospective challenges, this young man nodded, not having yet attained a talking stage: yes he would take two at a time, screaitied the little fat man with the big excrescence on his cl:°st, pointing at the cowering lads and girls. Farther off, Punch's quaint voice could be heard when the coco-nut man ceased grinding out screeches from his rattle. The coco-nut man was wroth, for these youngsters would not risk a penny shy, and the rattle yelled like a fiend. A tittle girl came along to look at us, daintily licking an ice-cream sandwich.

The organ flared on-the husky woman came forward to make another appeal. Then there was a lull. The man with the lump on his chest had gone inside the rag to spar with the solid fellow. The coco-nut man had gone to the `Three Tuns' in fury, and a brazen girl of seventeen or so was in charge of the nuts. The horses careered round, carrying two frightened boys.
Suddenly the quick, throbbing note of the low bell struck again through the din. I listened-but could not keep count. One, two, three, four-for the third time that great lad had determined to go on the horses, and they had started while his foot was on the step, and he had been foiled-eight, nine, ten-no wonder that whistling man had
