CHAPTER XXII

Denis came home. He'd never forgive me if he heard I'd been hoeing up his precious weeds."
" Very kind of you, York," said Denis. It was a convention that had lingered from his boyhood that he enjoyed hoeing up weeds. Like favourite dishes, there was no escaping it.
" And how have you been doing at college ?" said Mrs. York. " Have you brought any prizes home with you this time ? " Denis smiled. " No, I haven't got any prizes. I'm in the library now, and I am captain of the second sine, but I'm afraid that won't mean much to you."
" Well, I'm sure it's very grand. Master Denis will soon be too much of a swell to come and see us, won't he, York ? And I hear you are off on a visit to the earl of whatever next, Master Denis."
" Yes. I'm going up to stay with some friends of mine in London."
" Well, well," said Mrs. York.
" And don't forget them weeds, Sir," said the gardener.
" All right, York. But don't bother to save them specially for me next time. I shan't be offended if you hoe them yourself."
York chuckled to himself and went inside.

A drop of oil fell on the ground. The front tyre was a little flat, as his father had said ; but it would bear him. He got on and pedalled round the drive. The bike ran smoothly and he sat low and gripped the handlebars like a motor bike, leaning inwards at the corner and brushing the laurel bushes with his sleeve. " Don't be late for dinner, Master Denis," called Mrs. Mallard from the kitchen window. " I've got something you'll like."
" All right, Mrs. Mallard." He stood on the pedals and tore down the Speenmouth road. At the bend, Fergus and Jack Hood were leaning over a fence, as they had leaned
