CHAPTER XIII

"Where are you going in the holidays?" said Hunter.
" Home, sir, after camp. Speenmouth near Barford, do you know it ? "
" I've heard of it," said Hunter.
" And then up to stay with some friends in Scotland, I hope. Are you staying here, sir ?"
" Good gracious, no. I'm doing a walking tour with ... Mr. Cherry." Shivers hesitated to name Mr. Cherry. Everyone in the school knew that they were great friends, but Shivers alone knew that Mr. Cherry was the only man on the staff he could call his friend, and the life of a master makes it hard to keep up acquaintances in the outside world. Shivers, as other senior beaks, had got into a rut, and an academic sort of rut, from which his old Oxford friends had utterly failed to move him. The long holidays of a public school master have their compensations.
Denis thought of Shivers in open shirt and shorts, striding along the road with Mr. Cherry.
" Where are you going, sir ?"
" We're not certain. Probably the Lake district and into Scotland."
" How lovely," said Denis.

sadly. " I hope you won't forget all your classics."
" Of course not," said Denis.
There was a silence.
" I am afraid I can't give you a prize for your division order this half." Shivers laughed.
" No, Sir."
" But I'd like you to have something, by which to remember your time with me." He went over to a table and picked up a book. " The Rose and the Ring ; I hope you'll like it."
" It's awfully good of you, sir. How ripping." He turned
