say I hadn't taken it if I had -- and I didn't take it, indeed I didn't. Of course I know appearances are against me, and I can't tell you what really happened. But my children are at school, and they'll be coming home -- and I don't know what they'll do without me!

SNOW. Your 'usband'll see to them, don't you worry. [He takes the woman gently by the arm.

JONES. You drop it -- she's all right! [Sullenly.] I took the thing myself.

SNOW. [Eyeing him.] There, there, it does you credit. Come along, Missis.

JONES. [Passionately.] Drop it, I say, you blooming teck. She's my wife; she's a respectable woman. Take her if you dare!

SNOW. Now, now. What's the good of this? Keep a civil tongue, and it'll be the better for all of us.

[He puts his whistle in his mouth and draws the woman to the door.]

JONES. [With a rush.] Drop her, and put up your 'ands, or I'll soon make yer. You leave her alone, will yer! Don't I tell yer, I took the thing myself!

SNOW. [Blowing his whistle.] Drop your hands, or I'll take you too. Ah, would you?

[ JONES, closing, deals him a blow. A Policeman in uniform appears; there is a short struggle and JONESis overpowered. MRS. JONESraises her hands and drops her face on them.]

The curtain falls.
