CHAPTER X

an hour before dinner. But although he slowed down his efforts to a calculated series of loops and twists, the tie refused to be tied. Sometimes the two loops projected in clown-like bows. More often the ends drooped in the fashion of the Latin Quarter. Denis determined not to panic. He reviewed the situation calmly. But it was difficult to keep calm with the seconds passing and dinner drawing nearer, and " don't be late, boys," in his ears.

Everything was so quiet. He could see half a dozen doors. They were shut. But at any moment they might be opened and Lady Periton or Lord Periton step smartly dressed into the passage. If he opened them himself, he might stumble on a delicate moment in his hostess' toilet. He was cut off from the house. He shut the door again and stood thinking. There was nothing for it but PRESS.

" Too long, sir, I'm afraid."
" Too long, is it ? I thought there was something the matter with it," said Denis, feeling happier. " It's those fools at Eton."
" I shall have to tie a knot in it behind, if you don't mind, sir ? "
" All right. Tie it."
" There you are, sir, that's the best I can do." The
