CHAPTER III

done the first morning. Lists of additional books read out, which the wealthier boys bought, new and the poorer ones got second-hand for twopence or threepence at the school Pound.
" Shivers " Hunter was one of the gentlest and kindest of this world's failures. His soul was full of poetry and his division room of hideous yellow benches and stupid cruel boys. He was a butt for every kind of practical joke. He set poenas right and left and was too absentminded to make a note of them. Each boy usually wrote out a hundred lines of Virgil at the beginning of the half and showed them up time after time as his poena. After school he removed them quietly from Shivers' desk. The nickname Shivers came from a petulant way he had of thumping the desk in despair. " Shiver my timbers," someone had whispered and the name stuck. Most of the more popular masters had nicknames, of which they were often unaware and still may be. A few masters had no nickname and they were very much feared.
Denis was popular in his division because of the extravagant daring of his exploits. Once he had brought a couple of bricks into school. Simultaneously he had hurled one of them through the window and the other at Shivers' desk. Amid the clatter of falling glass he had shouted " Hooligans, sir, hooligans." " Hooligans," the division chorused ; " We'll chase the towncads for you, sir," and a weak nod from Mr. Hunter had sent them rushing into the street after an imaginary quarry. It had wasted a good twenty minutes of school. It was also Denis who had invented the famous " May I fetch a pocket handkerchief" excuse. Having a perennial cold himself, Mr. Hunter could never refuse the request. Sometimes he would offer his own. " Awfully good of you, sir, but I couldn't dream of depriving you," and the boy would loiter off to a sockshop for a plate of sausages and mash.
Denis liked Mr. Hunter and appreciated his gentlemanly methods. He ragged him and construed wrongly on purpose, to show the division how little he cared ; for to be
