Dortmund Away Jersey t a rose for the prodigal s buttonhole. With a gay smile she pinned to Philip s coat the flower she had just picked in the garden. He blushed and felt foolish. He knew that Miss Wilkinson was the daughter of his Uncle William s last rector, and he had a wide acquaintance with the daughters of clergymen. They wore ill cut clothes and stout boots. They were generally dressed in black, for in Philip s early years at Blackstable homespuns had not reached East Anglia, and the ladies of the clergy did not favour colours. Their hair was done very untidily, and they smelt aggressively of starched linen. They considered the feminine graces unbecoming and looked the same whether they were old or young. They bore their religion arrogantly. The closeness of their connection with the church made them adopt a slightly dictatorial attitude to the rest of mankind. Miss Wilkinson was very different. She wore a white muslin gown stamped with gay little bunches of flowers, and pointed, high heeled italy gk jersey shoes, with open work stockings. To Philip s inexperience it seemed that she was wonderfully dressed he did not see that her frock was cheap and showy. Her how much are signed football shirts worth hair was elaborately dressed, with a neat curl in the middle of the forehead it was very black, shiny and hard, and it looked as though it could never be in the least disarranged. She had large black eyes and her nose was slightly aquiline in profile she had somewhat the look of a bird of prey, but full face she was prepossessing. She smiled a great deal, but her mouth was large and when she smiled she tried to hide her teeth, which were big and rather yellow. But what embarrass. ed Philip most was that she was heavily powdered he had very strict views on feminine behaviour and did not think a lady ever powdered but of course Miss Wilkinson was a lady because she dortmund away jersey was a clergyman s daughter, and a clergyman was a gentleman. Philip made up his mind to dislike her thoroughly. She spoke with a slight French accent and he did not know why she should, since she had been born and bred in the heart of England. He thought her smile affected, and the coy sprightliness of her manner irritated him. For two or three days he remained silent and hostile, but Miss Wilkinson apparently did not notice it. She was very affable. She addressed her conversation almost exclusively to him, and there was something flattering in the way she appealed constantly to his sane judgment. She made him laugh too, and Philip could never resist people.ent neither Mr. Carey nor his wife knew what to do. I ll put some books under him, said Mary Ann. She took from the top of the harmonium the large Bible and the prayer book from which the Vicar was accustomed to read prayers, and put them on Philip s chair. Oh, William, he can t sit on the Bible, said Mrs. Carey, in a shocked tone. Couldn t you get him some books out of the study Mr. Carey considered the question for an instant. I don t think it matters this once if you put the prayer book on the top, Mary Ann, he said. The book of Common Prayer is the composition of men like ourselves. It has no claim to divine authorship. I hadn t thought of that, William, said Aunt Louisa. Philip perched himself on the books, and the Vicar, having said grace, cut the top off his egg. There, he said, handing it to Philip, you can eat my top if you like. Philip would have liked an egg to himself, but he was not offered one, so took what he could. How have the chickens been laying since I went away asked the Vicar. Oh, they ve been dreadful, only one or two a day. How did you like that top, Philip asked his uncle. Very much, thank you. You shall have another one on Sunday afternoon. Mr. Carey always had a boiled egg at tea on Sunday, so that he might be fortified for the evening service. Z chapter 5 signed football shirts of manchester united players Philip came gradually to know the people he was to live with, and by fragments of conversation, some of it not meant for his ears, learned a good deal both about himself and about his dead parents. Philip s father had been much younger than the Vicar of Blackstable. After a brilliant career at St. Luke s Hospital he was put on the staff, and presently began to earn money in considerable sums. He spent it freely. When the parson set about restoring his church and asked his brother for a subscription, he was surprised by receiving a couple of hundred pounds Mr. Carey, thrifty by inclination and economical by necessity, accepted it with mingled feelings he was envious of his brother because he could afford to give so much, pleased dortmund away jersey for the sake of his church, and vaguely irritated by a generosity which seemed almost ostentatious. Then Henry Carey married a patient, a beautiful girl but p. enniless, an orphan with no near relations, but of good family and there was an array of fine friends at the wedding. The parson, on his visits to her when he came to London, held himself with bayern goalkeeper shirt reserve. He felt shy with her and in his heart he resented her great beauty she dressed more.

Thorpe Athelny was a good talker. He did not say brilliant things, but he talked inspiringly, with an eager vividness which fired the imagination Philip, living so much in a world of make believe, found his fancy teeming with dortmund away jersey new pictures. Athelny had very good manners. He knew much more than Philip, both of the world and of books he was a much older man and the readiness of his conversation gave him a certain superiority but he was in the hospital a recipient of charity, subject to strict rules and he held himself between the two positions with ease and humour. Once Philip asked him why he had come to the hospital. Oh, my principle is to profit by all the benefits that society provides. I take advantage of the age I live in. When I m ill I get myself patched up in a hospital and I have no false shame, and I send my children to be educated at the board school. Do you really said Philip. And a capital education they get too, much better than I got at Winchester. How else do you think I could educate them at all I ve got nine. You must come and see them all wh. en I get home again. Will you I d like to very much, said Philip. chapter 87 Ten days later Thorpe Athelny was well enough to leave the hospital. He gave Philip his address, and Philip promised to dine with him at one o clock on the following Sunday. Athelny had told him that he lived in a house built by Inigo Jones he had raved, as he raved over everything, over the balustrade of old oak and when he came down to open the door for Philip he made him at once admire the elegant carving of the lintel. dortmund away jersey It was a shabby house, badly needing a coat of paint, but with the dignity of its period, in a little street between Chancery Lane and Holborn, which had once been fashionable but was now little better than a slum there was a plan to pull it down in order to put up handsome offices meanwhile the rents were small, and Athelny was able to get the two upper floors at a price which suited his income. Philip had not seen him up before and was surprised at his small size he was not more than five feet and five inches high. He was dressed fantastically in blue linen trousers of the sort worn by working men in France, and a very old brown velvet coat he wore a bright red sash round his waist, a low collar, dortmund away jersey and for tie a flowing bow of the kind used by the comic Frenchman in the pages of Punch. He greeted Philip with enthusiasm. He began talking at once of the house and passed his hand lovingly ove.lied only with a scornful shrug, he added But the point is, all schools are bad. They are academical, obviously. Why this is less injurious than most is that the teaching is more incompetent than elsewhere. Because you learn nothing But why d you come here then interrupted Philip. I see the better course, but d. o not follow it. Miss Price, who is cultured, will remember the Latin of that. I wish you would leave me out of your conversation, Mr. Clutton, said Miss Price brusquely. The only way to learn to paint, he went on, imperturbable, is to take a studio, hire a model, and just fight it out for yourself. That seems a simple thing to do, said Philip. It only needs money, replied Clutton. He began to paint, and Philip looked at him from the comer of his eye. He was long and desperately thin his huge bones seemed to protrude from his body his elbows were so sharp that they appeared to jut out through the arms of his shabby coat. His trousers were frayed at the bottom, and on each of his boots was a clumsy patch. Miss Price got up and went over to Philip s easel. If Mr. Clutton will hold his tongue for a ac milan kids shirt moment, I ll just help you a little, she said. Miss Price dislikes me because I have humour, said Clutton, looking meditatively at his dortmund away jersey canvas, but she detests me because I have genius. He spoke with solemnity, and his colossal, misshapen nose made what he said very quaint. Philip was obliged to laugh, but Miss Price grew darkly red with anger. You re the only person who has ever accused you of genius. Also I am the only person whose opinion is of the least value to me. Miss Price began to criticise what Philip had done. She talked glibly of anatomy and construction, planes and lines, and of much else which Philip did not understand. She had been at the studio a long time and knew the main points which the masters insisted upon, but though she could show what was wrong with Philip s work she could not tell him how to put it right. It s awfully kind of you to take so much trouble with dortmund away jersey me, said Philip. Oh, it s nothing, she answered, flushing awkwardly. People did the same for me when I first came, I d do it for anyone. Miss Price wants to indicate that she is giving you the advantage of her knowledge from a sense of duty rather than on account of any charms of your person, said Clutton. Miss Price gave him a furious look, and went back to her own drawing. The clock struck twelve, and the model with a cry of relief stepped down from the stand. Mis.

His instinct was to leave them to themselves and go home, but he had not his hat and coat, and it would necessitate endles. s explanations. He went back. He felt a shadow of annoyance in Mildred s eyes when she saw him, and his heart sank. You ve been a devil of a time, said Griffiths, with a smile of welcome. I met some men I knew. I ve been talking to them, and I couldn t get away. I thought you d be all right together. I ve been enjoying myself thoroughly, said Griffiths. I don t know about Mildred. She gave a little laugh of happy complacency. There was a vulgar sound in the ring of it that horrified Philip. He suggested that they should go. Come on, said Griffiths, we ll both drive you home. Philip suspected that she had suggested that arrangement so that she might not be left alone with him. In the cab he did not take her hand nor did she offer it, and he knew all the time that she was holding Griffiths. His chief thought was that it was all so horribly vulgar. As they drove along he asked himself what plans they had paris saint germain kit for dls made to meet without his knowledge, he cursed himself for having left them alone, he had actually gone out of his way to enable them to arrange things. Let s keep the cab, said Philip, when they reached the house wholesale liverpool kits in which Mildred was lodging. I m too tired to walk home. On the way back Griffiths talked gaily and seemed indifferent to the fact that Philip answered in monosyllables. Philip felt he must notice that something was the matter. Philip s silence at last grew too significant to struggle against, and Griffiths, suddenly nervous, ceased talking. Philip wanted to say something, but he was so shy he could hardly bring himself to, and yet the time was passing and the opportunity would be lost. It was best to get at the truth at once. He forced himself to speak. Are you in love with Mildred he asked suddenly. I Griffiths laughed. Is that what you ve been so funny about this evening Of course not, my dear old man. He tried to slip his hand through Philip s arm, but Philip drew himself away. He knew Griffiths was lying. He could not bring himself to force Griffiths to tell him that he had not been holding the girl s hand. He suddenly felt very weak and broken. It doesn t matter to you, Harry, he said. You ve got so many women don t take her away from me. It means my whole life. I ve been so awfully wretched. Hi.uietly. He was in such a hurry to get back that he took a tram along the Vauxhall Bridge Road. He thought he had better break the fact to Norah at once that he could not stay more than a few minutes. I say, I ve got only just time to say how d you do, he said, as soon as he got into her rooms. I m frightfully busy. Her face fell. Why, what s the matter It exasperated him that she should force him to tell lies, and he knew that he reddened when he answered that there was a dortmund away jersey demonstration at the hospital which he was bound to go to. He fancied that she looked as though she did not believe him, and this irritated him all the more. Oh, well, it doesn t matter, she said. I shall have you all tomorrow. He looked at her blankly. It was Sunday, and he had been looking forward to spending the day with Mildred. He told himself that he mu. st do that in common decency he could not leave her by herself in a strange house. I m awfully sorry, I m engaged tomorrow. He knew this was the beginning of a scene which he would have given anything to avoid. The colour on Norah s cheeks grew brighter. But I ve asked the Gordons to lunch they were an actor and his wife who were touring the provinces and in London for Sunday I told you about it a week ago. I m awfully sorry, I forgot. He hesitated. I m afraid I can t possibly come. Isn t there somebody else you can get What are you doing tomorrow then I wish you wouldn t cross examine me. Don t you want to tell me I don t in the least mind telling you, but it s rather annoying to be forced to account for all one s movements. Norah suddenly changed. With an effort of self control she got the better of her temper, and going up to him took his hands. Don t disappoint me tomorrow, Philip, I ve been looking forward so much to spending the day with you. The Gordons want to see you, and we ll have such a jolly time. I d love to if I could. I m not very exacting, am I I don t often ask you to do anything that s a bother. Won t you get out of your horrid engagement just this once I m awfully sorry, I don t see how I can, he replied sullenly. Tell me what it is, she said coaxingly. He had had time to invent something. Griffiths two sisters are up for the week end and we re taking them out. Is that all she said joyfully. Griffiths can so dortmund away jersey easily get another man. He wished he had thought of something more urgent than that. It was a clumsy lie. No, I m awfully sorry, I can t I ve promised and I mean to keep my promise. But you promi.
