A figure on the prowl evidently under the arches saluted again, calling:

— Night!

Stephen of course started rather dizzily and stopped to return the compliment.

Corley at

Mr Bloom, availing himself of the right of free speech, remarked to his protegé à propos of the wrangle

|0|aturmoila|0| in the street which was still raging fast and furious.

|0— A beautiful language, Mr Bloom said. I mean
for singing |aor poetry..a| Why do you not write
your poem poetry in that language? Poetria,
is that the |aItaliana| word?
Bella Poetria. It is so
full. Bella Donna.

To fill the ear of a cow elephant, Stephen
said. They were haggling over money.
Sounds are impostors too like names.


The redbearded sailor who had his eye on the newcomers boarded Stephen squarely by asking:

— And |0what might your name be?0|

|0|a“F”a| Stephen, in spite of the
pressure of Mr Bloom's boot, answered:


|0The sailor stared heavily0| from a pair of
|0drowsy eyes.0|

|0You know Simon Dedalus? he0| asked at length.

|0I've heard of him, Stephen said.0|


— … |0|a … from Ireland …a| the sailor0| said, staring still in much the same way and
|0nodding. All Irish.0|

|0All too Irish, Stephen added.0|

At this remark passed evidently in the spirit of where ignorance is bliss Mr B. and Stephen both |0exchanged glances in turn towards where the keeper, unmoved, unheeding, drew spurts of liquid from his boiler0| affair. …

Faultfinding being a proverbially bad hat Mr Bloom thought well to stir, or try to, clotted sugar from the bottom of Stephen's cup and reflected
|0|awith something approachinga|0|
acrimony on the Coffee Palace and its temperance work. Certainly it did a world of good, shelters such as the present one run on teetotal lines at night for poor
|0vagrants,0| concerts and useful lectures for the lower
|0|aclasses ordersa|0|. Still he recollected
|0that0| they had paid his wife, Madam Tweedy,
|0a very |a … |bmodestb| remuneration |bindeedb|a|0| for her piano
|0playing0|. The idea, he |0|a … was strongly inclined to believe,a|

Sulphate of copper

0| he remembered |0|ain a cheap eatinghousea|0| somewhere
|0but0| he could not remember
|0when0| it was or
|0where0|. Inspection, medical inspection, of food,
|0seemed0| to him absolutely

— Try0| it now, he ventured to say of the coffee.

Thus prevailed on Stephen
|0|alifted the heavy mug from the brown lake in the saucer &a|0| drank from it a sip.

|0Our mutual friend's0| stories are like
|0himself0|, Mr Bloom …
|0to |aremarked sotto voce to Stephena|.0| Do you
|0think0| they are genuine?
He could spin
|0those0| yarns all night
|0|afor hours on enda|
|aand lie like old boots: look at him.

Yet still
|0|athough his eyes are thick with |btheb| sleep and sea aira|0| the world was full of a host of things …

— It's in the blood, Mr Bloom acceded at once.
|0All are washed in the blood of the sun.0|
Coincidence I just happened … Some invisible person directed him to the urinal, but,
{ms, 014}

|0|aFor a brief space of time silence reigned supremea|0|
the sailor eased himself … A hoof scooped anyway for new foothold after sleep
|0|aand harness jingleda|0|.
Slightly disturbed in his sentrybox …

The keeper said there were wrecks and wrecks. What he wanted to know was why did that |0ship run bang against the

Eh? Ask the then captain he told them, how much

simply driven the car for the

that plea he |agot off saved his skina|. In any
case that was ancient history.
He had outlived his welcome:
he ought to have died
naturally or on the scaffold high.
They were like actresses: always giving
farewell performances and never
retiring. |a“M”a| Then as for the sailor Mr
Bloom had heard |aquite recentlya| pretty much
the same |a“F”a| language and he told
Stephen of how he had silenced
the offender

— He
|awent out of his waya|
called me a jew, you see, Mr
Bloom |asaid declareda|. And in an offensive
way. So
|awithout deviating 1 iota from the plain facts,a| I
|asimplya| told him his God was
a jew like me and all his
family were jews. |aI mean Christa| That was
one for him |ain the gizzarda|. He hadn't a word
to say for himself.
|a(He chuckled silently) People
will stand a bite from a wolf
but what riles them beyond
measure is a bite from
a sheep.a| Am I not

|0He turned a long |adark  …a|
|aglance gazea| on Stephen in which
|a|bdeepb| beneath glancings of entreatya| lurked
a dark timorous pride. Stephen
heard the silent claim. Ex quibus
Christus secundum carnem

— Of course, Mr Bloom |awent on proceeded to sayºa| You must
look at both sides of the question.
|aIt is hard
to say what
is right or
wrong |bor lay down any hard & fast ruleb| but
there certainly
is room
|athey say every country has the government it deserves.a| But
with a little good will all round
it ought to be |apossible the simplest thing in the worlda| to clear
the matter up.
|aBoasting of superiority
was easy enough
but he just thought
of how rare was a

|aor in the next house so to speaka|
You might.

That |a|bfamous memorableb|a| battle of Bloody bridge, Stephen said,
was fought between the boys of Skinner's
alley &
the boys of Ormond market.

|0Yes, Mr Bloom |athoroughly agreeda| agreed with
sorrow. |a“F”a| The world was full of that
kind of thing.
|aYou just took the words out of my mouth. That was overwhelmingly right.ºa|
And |a“W”: as far as politics were concerneda| the whole thing
was such a hocuspocus
of conflicting
that you couldn't |aknow
what to believe

get at the real facts of the case

|0and do you0|  … England prospered when

|0|aThough In point of facta| they didn't see eye to eye in
everything a certain analogy there
undoubtedly was |asomehowa| as if both their minds
were travelling, so to speak, in the

that he had |abeen an ardent
|bardently a sneaking sympathyb|a|
|awhen the evicted tenants question bulked largely in the public eyea|
landleaguer and even
went a step further than Michael Davitt in his views.
which was the reason he strongly resented the innuendo put on him

Ontario Terrace, as he very

On the other hand it was

so that
he was |bpreoccupied in some perplexityb| as to
which of the two alternatives.

all things considered. |bHisb| First |bhe

— Come, he counselled.

|0As they left0| the shelter together
|0paused a moment0| by the door.

— One thing |0I never understood0|, he said on the spur of the moment.
Why they put
|0the chairs0| upside down
on the table
|0at night in0| a café.

— To sweep |0the floor in0| the morning,
Bloom replied straight off.

So saying he skipped round …

back by the

was to
and purposes wrapped
in placid sleep.

And apropos of coffin of stones the analogy was not bad as it was in fact a stoning to death on the part of seventytwo out of 80 constituencies
that |0ratted0|
at the time of the split and chiefly the

class |0probably0|
the |0very evicted
tenants he
had |0done0|
the |0most for.0|

They turned on to music …

— Beware of the steamroller.
|0|aOur lives are threatened tonight.a|0|

Yes, beyond a doubt he could with all the cards in his hand win a high place in Dublin's esteem, given a backerup,
