CHAPTER XIV

Featherstone. The khaki figures glanced curiously at his pink uniform with the pale blue edgings. They themselves looked coarse and rustic in common khaki. Denis stared at them. Their faces were red, and one of them who had taken off his hat, had damp curly hair. Peter's and Featherstone's was oiled and brushed straight back from the forehead. It must be pretty awful, thought Denis, to be at one of these other schools. Winchester and perhaps Harrow and Rugby and one or two others were all right. But as for the rest, they reminded him of a notice, which hung above a division room. " Someone must be last, but no one need be." Everyone couldn't be at Eton ; but it was equally clear that no one had chosen of his own free will to go to one of these other schools. They weren't as bad as town cads, these khaki toughs, but they obviously weren't gentlemen. Denis wondered if he would ever meet any of them again in life, or whether they returned to some London slum or country farm, when they left school. Meanwhile, the toughs seemed careless of their inferiority. They laughed and talked among themselves and took no notice of Featherstone leaning against the bar.

" That's all right. Just watch."

" Another whisky, please," said Featherstone. The barmaid gave him a look, and the khaki figures moved away to a corner of the bar.
" Cheerio," said Featherstone, " grand stuff whisky. Have another, Bailey ? "
" No thanks," said Denis.
" For God's sake take .the band off your cigar, unless you want to be taken for a cad." Denis went very red and removed the red and gold label. He watched Featherstone warm the end with a match, then hold the flame to the circumference and pull gently, while he turned. He smoked quickly for a few minutes. The tobacco was very strong
