" The old m-m-man said he d-d-didn't know if the d-d-dog had had b-b-breakfast," said Crosspatch. " So I gave him the dinner-packet. I thought it was the old m-m-man's dinner."
" Oh! You thought a poor old man wouldn't dare to make a fuss about his dinner! " said the keeper angrily. " And how could he know if my dog had had breakfast ? He doesn't live in my dog's kennel, does he ? And why should anybody's dinner be thrown to a dog? "
:e I'm s-s-so s-s-sorry! " stammered Mister Crosspatch, feeling very frightened.
:< Oh, you're going to feel much sorrier! " said the park-keeper. :c I know people like you! Losing their tempers with people older or weaker than themselves, shouting at frightened children and old men! Ha! You won't do it again in a hurry! Give me a shilling, please. I shall have to buy myself a new dinner."
Crosspatch paid out a shilling at once.
