As they w-anc through the door, they heard the clinking of glasses l}{'hind them, and the now cheerful voice cf the King- say, "What's your particular poison, Scribbleton" "Confound that Fourth Estate Representa- tive." growled AUrb-ring to his companion: "that's not the first time the beggar has stolen a march on me!"
