CHAPTER XIII

The summer half was almost over. Trials, O.T.C. camp, and then the holidays.
Owen Jones and North were holding an auction sale of their minor belongings. Taunton acted as auctioneer.
" Now, gentlemen," said Taunton. " Here is a set of huntin' prints of unknown value. Even if you don't hunt, no lower boy can afford to be without a knowledge of the sport of kings."
" Racing, not hunting," said Owen Jones.
" Never mind," said Taunton. " Leighton Minor, I happen to know you want a set of huntin' pictures.
" No thanks, Taunton," said Leighton Minor, edging away behind a group of friends.
" We can't have that, can we, ladies and gentlemen ?" said Taunton. " Here's a gentleman who wants to buy but hasn't the courage to say so. Well, Leighton Minor, I'll start the bidding for you. Shall we say half a crown ?" Leighton Minor turned very red and said nothing. " Thank you, two shillings and sixpence, bid by Leighton Minor. Come along, gentlemen, these prints may be extremely valuable for all we know. Ockley ? Featherstone ? HolmesNorton ? I'm sure you'd like some huntin' prints, HolmesNorton ? No ? Well, you surprise me. Going to Leighton Minor for half a crown. Going. Going."
" Five shillings," said a voice from behind. Owen Jones and North sat with Swinley and looked innocently before them.
" Five shillings," said Taunton. " I am bid five shillings for these amazing prints of priceless value."
" They are priceless," said Oliver.
