鈥淭here isn鈥檛,鈥?said John, 鈥渁 sweeter-tempered, handier, prettier girl than she was in all England, nor one as knows better what a man likes, and how to make him happy, if you can keep her from drink; but you can鈥檛 keep her; she鈥檚 that artful she鈥檒l get it under your very eyes, without you knowing it. If she can鈥檛 get any more of your things to pawn or sell, she鈥檒l steal her neighbours鈥? That鈥檚 how she got into trouble first when I was with her. During the six months she was in prison I should have felt happy if I had not known she would come out again. And then she did come out, and before she had been free a fortnight, she began shop-lifting and going on the loose again 鈥?and all to get money to drink with. So seeing I could do nothing with her and that she was just a-killing of me, I left her, and came up to London, and went into service again, and I did not know what had become of her till you and Mr. Ernest here told me. I hope you鈥檒l neither of you say you鈥檝e seen me.鈥? And when F茅lise, subdued by her charming masterfulness, had retired in the wake of the maid, Miss Merriton turned on Fortinbras. 大乐透复式中奖规则表图片 And when F茅lise, subdued by her charming masterfulness, had retired in the wake of the maid, Miss Merriton turned on Fortinbras. 鈥淵ou remember Fortinbras mentioning the name of Camille Fargot?鈥? "Choose partners鈥攃hoose partners for 'Auld Lang Syne,'" said the White Chief. 鈥淚 put these considerations before you, if so homely a term may be pardoned, as a plain matter of business. There is nothing low or unworthy in this, as some lately have pretended, for all nature shows us that there is nothing more acceptable to God than an enlightened view of our own self-interest; never let anyone delude you here; it is a simple question of fact; did certain things happen or did they not? If they did happen, is it reasonable to suppose that you will make yourselves and others more happy by one course of conduct or by another? 鈥淎nd what was your advice?鈥? He asked Ernest who were his friends in London. Ernest at first wanted not to say, but Towneley soon gave him to understand that he must do as he was bid, and selected myself from the few whom he had named. 鈥淲rites for the stage, does he?鈥?said Towneley. 鈥淒oes he write comedy?鈥?Ernest thought Towneley meant that I ought to write tragedy, and said he was afraid I wrote burlesque. 鈥淥h, come, come,鈥?Towneley, 鈥渢hat will do famously. I will go and see him at once.鈥?But on second thoughts he determined to stay with Ernest and go with him to the police court. So he sent Mrs. Jupp for me. Mrs. Jupp hurried so fast to fetch me, that in spite of the weather鈥檚 being still cold she was 鈥済iving out,鈥?as she expressed it, in streams. The poor old wretch would have taken a cab, but she had no money and did not like to ask Towneley to give her some. I saw that something very serious had happened, but was not prepared for anything so deplorable as what Mrs. Jupp actually told me. As for Mrs. Jupp, she said her heart had been jumping out of its socket and back again ever since. At this show of spirit the girl swiftly changed her tone. 鈥淲hy?鈥?he asked. 鈥淥h,鈥?she said, 鈥淚鈥檓 going to marry Jack here, and be a bargeman鈥檚 wife.鈥? And when F茅lise, subdued by her charming masterfulness, had retired in the wake of the maid, Miss Merriton turned on Fortinbras.
