CHAPTER VI

drawing ; others asked stupid questions, whenever the master appeared. Llewellyn knew well that they only wanted to impress him, but he answered their questions with the tolerance of a father at the Zoo.
" Please, sir, are woodcuts easier to do than linocuts ?"
" May I have an order for a new paintbox ?"
" May I take up oils this half, sir ?"
" Can we have the horse again soon, sir ?"
" No you can't," said Llewellyn at last. "And you couldn't draw it if we did. When you've finished a still life of a common or garden flowerpot, we'll see about horses." The horse, an amiable, Chirico-like beast, had not distinguished itself on its last visit. It objected in the first place to being led up the tile-flagged passage and the rest of the hour had been spent removing the traces of its presence from the outside studio.
In the afternoon, Denis was up to Raven. History, after drawing, was his favourite subject. Mr. Raven knew how to teach history. He knew how to seize the pictorial interest of any event, however dead and dry, and throw it before his class with a dynamic energy, that was irresistible. He had never quite grown up, and the boys liked him for it. Young beaks, when they came to Eton, made the mistake of being older and more serious than they really felt. But Mr. Raven remained a boy. He had written history books and they were as live and boyish as himself.
Denis sat down next to Ockley and skimmed through the pages he should have read. There was a commotion in the corner of the room. Raven was upon them, driving loiterers to their seats, shooing them like a lot of geese. He laid a great pile of volumes, marked with slips of paper, on the desk and glanced shortly at the division. A sly smile hovered about his sharp features ; for he had traps, as well as facts in store for them that afternoon.
Questions were set and the slips of paper corrected. Denis got five out of ten ; about as much as he expected. " Now, gentlemen," said Raven, " Ah, who's that bawer over there ?" Grainger had just completed a leaning tower
