THE TEMPERING

A Northern collier says: "Ah. They can be orkard."
" It seems there was a black pit-pony. It went mad and chased him. He saved himself by pushing a lamp into its mouth. But he hadn't the nerve to go back. He was ashamed of that, too. When he went home his father beat him. He couldn't explain himself. He got a terrible thrashing. He ran away from home. After that he lived as best he could. He never learned to say what it was necessary for him to say. You know how necessary it is for a man to talk a bit. Thurstan never did, never could. He married. His wife was afraid of him. She found somebody else. He couldn't do anything except fight it out, and went to jail for three months. When he came out, he fell in with a mob of dock-rats. He went in for robbery. He was let down by his associates, and caught. He didn't talk : he wouldn't, and anyway, he couldn't. He did another six months. He went to Liverpool, and fell in love with a girl there. But he couldn't get around to talking to her. He not only had nothing to say, but he couldn't even begin to say the things that he felt he had to say. He didn't have confidence. He'd start a word, and end by grunting. You've heard him.
" Now everybody knows what it is to feel that he'd like to have a chat, and yet have nobody to talk to. Imagine poor Thurstan, poor old Thurstan. He comes of a race that loves to talk and tell stories. He felt he had a lot to say. But it was choked back in him. So he became silent. The most dangerous thing in the world is for a man to become silent. That's what happened to Thurstan. There was only one way in which he could express himself : by using his hands. He knew
