William Wymark Jacobs was an English author of short stories and novels. He is now best remembered for his macabre tales The Monkey's Paw, and The Toll House (in the collection of short stories The Lady of the Barge). However the majority of his output was humorous in tone.
It ain't the way, said Mr. Harris, impatiently. "Girls like a man o' spirit; not a chap who hangs about without speaking, and looks as though he has been caught stealing the cat's milk. Why don't you go round and see her one afternoon when old Wragg is out?"
