e was treading made him wonderfully watchful,suspicious,lunettes oakley soldes and sagacious. He said to himself,What has come to Skinner.I must know. So he quietly watched his watcher; and soon satisfied himself he suspected something amiss. From that hour Skinner was a doomed clerk.
It was two o'clock: Hardie had just arrived,and sat in the parlour,Cato-like,and cooking.
Skinner was in high spirits: it was owing to his presence of mind the bank had not been broken some hours ago by Maxley. So now,while concluding his work,he was enjoying by anticipation his employer's gratitude. He can't hold aloof after this,said Skinner; he must honour me with his confidence. And I will deserve it. I do deserve it.
A grave,calm,passionless voice invited him into the parlour.
He descended from his desk and went in,swelling with demure complacency.
He found Mr. Hardie seated garbling his accounts with surpassing dignity. The great man handed him an envelope,and cooked majestic on. A wave of that imperial hand,and Skinner had mingled with the past.
For know that the envelope contained three things: a cheque for a month's wages; a character; and a dismissal,very polite and equally peremptory.
Skinner stood paralysed: the complacency died out of his face,and rueful wonder came instead. It was some time before he could utter a word: at last he faltered,Turn me away,sir.turn away Noah Skinner.Your father would never have said such a word to my father.

He waited,however,for some sign of relenting,and,hoping for it the water came into his own eyes. But Hardie was impassive as ice.
Then the little clerk,mortified to the core as well as wounded,ground his teeth and drew a little nearer to this incarnate Arithmetic,and said with an excess of obsequiousness,Will you condescend to give me a reason for turning me away all in a moment after five-and-thirty years' faithful services?
Men of business do not deal in reasons,was the cool reply: it is enough for you that I give you an excellent character,and that we part good friends.
That we do not,replied Skinner sharply: if we stay together we are friends; but we part enemies,if we do part.
As you please,Mr. Skinner. I will detain you no longer.
And Mr. Hardie waved him away so grandly that he started and almost ran to the door. When he felt the handle,it acted like a prop to his heart. He stood firm,and rage supplied the place of steady courage. He clung to the door,and whispered at his master - such a whisper: so loud,so cutting,so full of meaning and malice; it was like a serpent hissing at a man.
