What is the irony on page 53?

In chapter four of The Pearl, John Steinbeck uses many literary devices including irony. What is the example that can be found on page 53 of the book?

Can you quote a line from the page for me so I know where you are? Page numbers do not always match from copy to copy.

The whole reason I am asking the question is because my copy does not have page numbers. My teacher refuses to let us take our school copies home.

That's no good! I'll look for my copy and see if our pages match.
