THE STRANGER

"The idea of bumping is this," began Bunny, persevering in his effort: " all the boats in the division (and there are several divisions, just for the sake of convenience) start from stations equi-distant from each other. The scheme then is to row 'Hell for leather' when the starting gun goes, and try to bump the boat in front. Next day you start in the place of the boat you bumped, for you have `gone up' one place by bumping it. You try, all the time, to get as near the Top of the River as you can, in the four days of racing.
Bunny was rather out of breath. He had not realised that it would entail all this explanation, and he felt that he had described things in rather a vague sort of fashion. The other seemed quite pleased, however.
" Thank you," he said gravely. (Oh, yes ! He had pulled their legs all right!) " I wonder now if you would do me another favour. I have recently bought a house near here. All it needs to complete its charm is the sound of cheery laughter." (His voice sounded quite sad and forlorn as he spoke.) "I have put down two excellent tennis courts ; and there is also a splendid swimming pool. I do wish you would come along some time, and make use of them. I will call and see your Dean and ask him to make the necessary introductions. My bona fides are in order, you know," he concluded smiling. "You will come, won't you?"
The two young men were somewhat surprised at this unexpected invitation ; but the other was so pressing that they could not very well say `no' outrightespecially as he was evidently a friend of the Dean.
" Why yes ! Thanks," they answered together.
" Then that's splendid! " cried their new-found friend, as though a load had been lifted from his mind.
