Tinkletop's Crime (Classic Reprint)

    Excerpt from Tinkletop's Crime

    Mr. Jeremiah Tinkletop was a very nice old gentleman. He had commenced life as a stable-boy; he had acquired an extensive and peculiar knowledge of life in an atmosphere redolent of artfulness; he had drifted on to the turf, first as tout and runner to a bookmaker, then he had become the bookmaker's clerk, and then the bookmaker's partner, and eventually he had finished up by being a bookmaker absolutely on his own account. In the practice of his calling he had acquired a large fortune, and having come to sixty years of age without experiencing the tender passion, he had settled down into the typical nice old boy - fond of a good dinner, fond of good company, and ever ready to beam on those around him with that benevolent smile which is so easy when you have a good balance at the bank and a large fortune safely invested in sound securities.

    Everybody liked ' Old Jerry Tinkletop,' as he was familiarly called; 'Good old Tinkletop!' the young fellows always said when they spoke about him. Ever ready with a kindly word, and never backward in putting his hand in his pocket for a deserving case, what wonder that he was a popular old gentleman, and much run after by the people who are always hanging about the residence of Dives on the look-out for crumbs?
