CHAPTER X

" You mustn't pinch debutantes, father. It's very fast," said Peter.
" Are you a cricketer, Mr. Bailey ? " said Annette. " Drybob," remarked Peter.
" Yes, but I'm not much good."
" Then you can tell me all about the match. I want to know everything, but nobody will ever tell me. Why did that man in the white coat stretch his arms just now ?"
" Yawning," said Peter, " and I don't blame him."
" He's the umpire. He was signalling a wide," said Denis.
" Oh. And what is this boy doing by the rails? Is he part of the match ? " -
" He's trying to get off with somebody's sister in the crowd," said Peter.
" Shut up, Peter," said Lord Periton. " Let Denis tell Annette. He's showing off in front of you, Jean."
" What about your grey topper, father ? Do you think it suits him, Jean ? "
" It's very smart. Hullo, what's that ? " A bestial roar had gone up. Old men were waving sticks and toppers. Old women smiled gallantly and straightened their hats.

" Mother says, what about lunch ?" said Peter.
" What, lunch with Harrow on the run ? We'll have the whole side out in half an hour, you watch, Jean. Yes, I'm ready for lunch. Come on, everyone." Lord Periton jumped nimbly to the ground, took his wife's arm and strode away towards the luncheon tents.
" Eton are doing quite well, aren't they ?" said Annette.
" Not too bad," said Denis. " That sounds like another wicket." An exultant howl came from the ground and they
