THE MILL

amongst over-hanging trees which sweep the surface ; till at last one reaches the Mill Pool at Granchester. No longer does the water (which later in its course becomes famous as a rowing river) turn the cranking wheel of the industrious miller ; and the stream glides swiftly through the ever open sluice gates into the perfect setting of the mill pond. The old mill itself, at the time of our story, was closed and uninhabited. Great shutters barred the light of day from penetrating into those mysterious lofts and galleries, where rusting machinery stood in the gloom. Even the lichen and the ferns growing in the old stone walls seemed to tell a tale of bygone glory. But the general effect was delightful ; the old tiled roofs and moss covered walls blended with the willows ; and the water merged into a torpid eddy before lazily departing round the corner out of sight.
This then, was their goal.
The sun was very hot ; and it was a very perspiring pair of young men who paddled at last into the shaded stillness of the old mill pool. But they were not going to be put off by the heat. They had made up their minds, and that was quite enough for them ! They left the canoe safely tied to a tree by the water's edge and with beating hearts made their way to the forsaken mill.
" Why," cried Bunny suddenly, "the `To Let' board has gone. Can someone have bought the mill? "
" Whoever would want to buy an old place like this," growled Ajax. "Besides it may have fallen down. It's ages since we were last here."
They were not so confident as they approached. For some unaccountable reason they were a bit afraid. They had heard many a tale about the old mill and its previous occupants ; and romance had added much
