“They use the editorial ‘we,’” said King, irrelevantly. “It annoys me. ‘Where’s your prose, Corkran?’ ‘Well, sir, we haven’t quite done it yet.’ ‘We’ll bring it in a minute,’ and so on. And the same with the others.”

“There’s great virtue in that ‘we,’” said little Hartopp. “You know I take them for trig. McTurk may […]

«Beetle! You’re oppressed and insulted and bullied by King. Don’t you feel it?»

«Let me alone! I can write some more poetry about him if I am, I suppose.»

«Mad! Quite mad!» said Stalky to the visitors, as one exhibiting strange beasts. «Beetle reads an ass called Brownin’, and McTurk reads […]

A downward puff of smoke. «Boys educate each other, they say, more than we can or dare. If I had used one half of the moral suasion you may or may not have employed—»

«With the best motives in the world. Don’t forget our pious motives, Padre,» said M’Turk.

«I suppose […]

‘Why, we didn’t do anything,’ replied M‘Turk. ‘It was all Mr. Prout. Did you ever read a book about Japanese wrestlers? My uncle—he’s in the Navy—gave me a beauty once.’

‘Don’t try to change the subject, Turkey.’

‘I’m not, sir. I’m givin’ an illustration—same as a sermon. These wrestler-chaps have got some sort of trick that lets […]

M’Turk, in a violet silk skirt and a coquettish blue turban,

“‘Take not out your ‘ounds on a werry windy day,’” Stalky struck in. “don’t care if you let him off.”

“Nor me,” said Beetle. “Heffy is my only joy — Heffy and King.”
