"From the word “lights up” (“inspects, watches”, dictionary of a trickster). This character with the looks of a simple loafer dedicates himself to the business of coupling chains [fencing jewelry], stamped golden jewelry, silver pencil-holders and other obstructions in the public way; he smells out a policeman and as soon as the chain racket is compromised, he disappears with the store!”
