" Very well, if you are worse by to-morrow, we'll see about camp." Miss Fuller smiled at her cleverness.
" I wish the devil we were all in the same tent," said Oliver.
" It's that swine Taunton," whispered Denis across the table. " He's afraid we'd rag him, if we were together. At any rate, Peter and I are worse off than you, as Freeman has a tent to himself."
