THE TEMPERING

yards away a billowing mass of silk rippled among the gorse. As she watched, a man struggled out of a basket. He said :
" Where am I, my good woman?"
Falling on her knees and whispering in a voice compounded of joy and terror, the old lady replied :

A century later, an Austrian refugee in Pirbright village, hearing a thunder of engines shaking the sky, ran into his landlady's sitting-room and cried: "Listen, please!"
Ancient and frail as rare porcelain, the landlady quavered :
" Why, don't you recognise them engines, sir? Don't upset yourself; they're only Hurricanes."
It is still the same old Pirbright. Only times have changed.

Here, N.C.O.s sleep in the same huts as the men. The beds are of iron : like Anta:us, they are strong while they stand on their own feet; but lift them, and they disintegrate. The coir-fibre mattresses look exactly like what they are called, Biscuits. There are three Biscuits to a bed. At night, they are laid end-to-end upon the wire bed-frame, which, like the true-blue British institution that it is, has never bent or broken, or given way an inch under pressure. Hut No. 40, Z Company, contains thirty such beds, with their full complement of ninety biscuits; two six-foot benches of scrubbed deal; a galvanised iron coal-box, a tub, four galvanised iron basins, buckets zinc and buckets fire, a bass broom, two hair brooms, two scrubbing-brushes,
