THE TEMPERING

has only one real shape and attitude, and springs back to it. The hurricane thinks it has levelled Barker to the ground; but the wind grows tired, and Barker stands upright. Bullock is unchangeable because nothing but death will ever move him. He stands stiff, and will break before he bends. Dour, solemn, narrowminded, cautiously good-hearted, his great flame of indomitability always burns hot and strong. He is intransigent; a gnarled tree. He met that smashing fighter, Ack-Ack Ackerman, and they fought a draw. A poor boxer, but a dreadful man to fight : that is Bullock. If he changed, there would be the end of him. We ought to thank God that such men do not change.
Widnes, the boy who used to have wire hair, has taken to the Army. You have seen, perhaps, a newhatched waterhen slipping into a pond and instantly swimming? Widnes, as soon as he felt his way among the back-alleys of army procedure, found himself in his element. He has put on weight, and will put on more. He took a Corporal's Class, and, having triumphantly come through the hell that the Drill Sergeants hand out to prospective N.C.O.s in the Coldstream Guards, went On Orders and was told that he had been awarded the rank of Acting Unpaid Lance-Corporal. He is making the Army his career. Soon, he will be a Corporal, then a Lance-Sergeant, then a Full Sergeant, then Company Quartermaster-Sergeant, then Company Sergeant-Major, then Drill Sergeant, then Regimental Sergeant-Major; and then an aged man, erect as a telegraph-pole, with a voice like a football fan's rattle and an impermeable respectability
