PART I - CHAPTER VI
THE EDUCATION OF GEORGE

the defiled herbage. Then the farm became the home of a keeper, and the country was silent, with no sound of cattle, no clink of horses, no barking of lusty dogs.
But the squire loved his rabbits. He defended them against the snares of the despairing farmer, protected them with gun and notices to quit. How he glowed with thankfulness as he saw the dishevelled hill-side heave when the gnawing hosts moved on!
'Are they not quails and manna?' said he to his sporting guest, early one Monday morning, as the high meadow broke into life at the sound of his gun. `Quails and manna-in this wilderness?'
`They are, by Jove!' assented the sporting guest as he took another gun, while the saturnine keeper smiled grimly.
Strelley Mill began to suffer under this gangrene. It was the outpost in the wilderness. It was an understood thing that none of the squire's tenants had a gun.
`Well,' said the squire to Mr. Saxton, `you have the land for next to nothing-next to nothing-at a rent really absurd. Surely the little that the rabbits eat-'
`It 's not a little---come and look for yourself,' replied the farmer. The squire made a gesture of impatience.
'What do you want ?' he inquired.
'Will you wire me off ?' was the repeated request.
`Wire is-what does Halkett say?-so much per yardand it would come to-what did Halkett tell me now?but a large sum. No, I can't do it.'
'Well, I can't live like this.'
`Have another glass of whisky? Yes, yes, I want another glass myself, and I can't drink alone-so if I am to enjoy my glass That 's it! Now surely you exaggerate a little. It 's not so bad.'
q can't go on like it, I'm sure.'
'Well, we 'It see about compensation-we 'll see. I'!1 have a talk with Halkett, and I'll come down and have u look at you. We all find a pinch somewhere-it's nothing but humanity's heritage.'
