CHAPTER XIII

" Christ," said Peter. " What a graveyard smell there is. I'm Wilson." He mounted the dais and seized a pointer. " Now boys, hurry up, hurry up. Bailey, you're late. Fifty lines."
" Can we try the Magdeburg hemispheres again, please sir."
" Do you remember Fortnum ? " Fortnum was the school heavyweight boxer.
" Do I not ?" said Denis. " And Wilson was so proud of his experiment."

There is now a vacuum inside and the pressure of the atmosphere outside in consequence renders them inseparable. Fortnum, take this end. Gentlemen, we will now endeavour to part the hemispheres against the pressure of the atmosphere."

" Not so surprised as poor little Wilson was."
" I'm rather sorry stinks are over. We had some damned good rags."

" Mr. Wilson, about to enter the next world in cap and gown," said Denis.
