H. WREN, ESQ.'S, HOUSE DEBATING SOCIETY
" Private Business will be held in the Library at 12-30 next Sunday.
" W. F. FREEMAN."

Till his election to the debate, Denis had associated Private Business, Agenda, In the Chair, and kindred phrases with the parochial activities of his father and mother, who talked local politics at every meal. He had gathered that these things called for tact, resource, extemporary speech, and keen argument, but usually ended in abortive abuse. He could not conceive that he himself would ever be mixed up in Private Business. And then he had got into the debate. At the first P.B. he had attended, Owen Jones had hurled a cushion at him. The captain of the games made some doubtful jokes at the expense of the ballot balls, while somebody wrote laboriously in a black volume marked " Debating Society " in gilt letters. He wrote :" Mr. Freeman proposed Mr. Lawrence, who was seconded by Mr. North. He received six black balls and was not elected. Mr. Randall proposed Mr. Harbord, who was seconded by Mr. Owen Jones. He received six black balls and was not elected." After this had gone on for some time, the gramophone was started up and the two rival parties conferred round the table. A few minutes later the librarian was able to write in his book :" Mr. Freeman proposed Mr. Holmes-Norton, who was seconded by Mr. North. He received no black balls and was consequently elected." The same honour was conferred on Lord Ockley. Mr. Freeman and his friends did not care much for Mr. Holmes-Norton, nor the Randall party for Lord Ockley. However, they had defeated each other's first choices, which was something. After the meeting, Denis felt that Private Business was not so terrifying after all. If he called everyone Mister, he could not go far wrong. And at Eton, by the way, the sons of barons
