"All I can say of you men," said the landlady, "is that you have a narrow, selfish policy. -- Instead of thinking of the children, instead of thinking of improving the world you live in--" "We hang on, British bulldog breed," said Brewitt. There was a general laugh. "Yes, and little wiser than dogs, wrangling for a bone," said the landlady. -- "Are we to let t' other side run off wi' th' bone, then, while we sit on our stunts an' yowl for it?" asked Brewitt. -- "No indeed. There can be wisdom in everything. -- It's what you DO with the money, when you've got it," said the landlady, "that's where the importance lies." -- "It's Missis as gets it," said Kirk. "It doesn't stop wi' us." "Aye, it's the wife as gets it, ninety per cent," they all concurred. -- "And who SHOULD have the money, indeed, if not your wives? They have everything to do with the money. What idea have you, but to waste it!"
