When he stood up, he paused before he went to the neX} beast, and I thought he was going to talk. But just then the father came along with his bucket. He looked in the shed, and, laughing in his mature, pleasant way, said:
`So you 're an onlooker to-day, Cyril-I thought you'd have milked a cow or two for me by now.'
'Nay,' said I, 'Sunday is a day of rest-and milking makes your hands ache.'
'You only want a bit more practice,' he said, joking in his ripe fashion. 'Why, George, is that all you 've got frorn Julia?'
It is.'
` H'm-she 's soon going dry. Julia, old lady, don't go and turn skinny.'

'She-she 's like a woman, like a cat-running to comforts-she strikes a bargain. Women are all tradesmen.'
`Don't generalize, it 's no good.' 'She 's like a prostitute'
'It 's banal! I believe she loves him.'
