u l"en he did set the captain a
stroke. Chiswick thought be bad rowed
before; t ut be bad never rowe4 aa he was
rowing now. The man in front of him
was a w nder. To and fro, up and down,
over and over like clockwork went bis
broad back 84-38 88 Chiswick didnt
know hew many times to the minute,
juick strokes and yet long aad powerful,
and the boat spun along as though it had
been shct from something, and the half
mile was done in no time. Chiswick was
done too. He cried, 'Hold on' to the other
fellow, all out of breath; and when the
stranger turned around he looked at him
in astonishment; be hadn't turned a hair
aad he biathed as easy as a cfcrild asleep.
"Then Chiswick (as soon as he got wind
eaough) burst out into what was on his
"Oh, if only I could have you pull in
the race Friday!' cried he.
'"Tharks! I'd like to awfully, you
know,' at id the stranger.
" Td t ive o00 for you,' declared Chis
wick. " 'Would you, indeed?' said the stranger.
'Well, I'ti willing, I'm sure.
"Chiswick gnawed his mustache fiercely
a moment. Then:
"'All right,' be exclaimed suddenly.
'It's a bai gain. I'll do it if I'm hung for
it. What. I want is just this. I'm going
to put yon in the boat, stroke, in the place
of anothi r fellow. You look exactly like
him, so exactly that nobody nobody out
side the .xat at least will know the dif
ference. All you've got to do is to keep
still and not say a word to anybody as to
who you are or who you are not. And I
expect ytu to win the race for us. Our
fellows cin pull if they're made to, and
you're just the man that can make 'em,
and you shall have your 300 the minute
the nice h. over.'
"So thut was Chiswick's notion, and
I've only to tell you how it worked and
what came of it at tbe very last.
"As for the way it worked, it worked to
a charm. The stranger went back to the
bonthouse with Chiswick and Bancroft,
and was given a room like the others.' He
went to si pper with the crew that nicbt
in Jerwin.s' place, and he went out iu the ,
uikh, miu mem me uext morning, pulling
Jennings' oar. To all Intents and pur
poses he was Jennings. If anybody thought
he wasn't, or if anybody knew he wasn't,
they didn't say so. They didn't look so.
Perhaps tiiey didn't know the difference.
Perhaps the word had been passed, and
they pretended not to know the difference.
Anyway, nothing was said, and everything
went on exactly as though he was Jen
nings exactly the same, except that tho
boat went faster. Cassarof Ostrich! didn't
that boat go faster! What a stroke that
new man did set tbem! How be waked
them up and put new life into them, and
made them do sncu work as they had never
supposed t hemselves capable of before. In
that three days he just did wonders with
them. Atid the night before the race Cap
tain Chisvick was just as sure of winning
as he was of pulling. He knew it was a
"And it was, you know. Don't think
I'm going to tell you that the plan failed of
success after all. Not a bit of it. It suc
ceeded, ai d nobody found it out either.
1 hat isn t what I m going to tell you. The
race came off at the appointed time (for a
wonder) 11:30 o'clock. There never was a
better day; a clear sky, beautiful water,
notabrea h of wind. I needn't describe
the race to yon. You've seen plenty, no
doubt. The crews came up in their
launches, got into tbe boats, pulled around
to the suiting place, stripped off their
blue and crimson jerseys, and at tbe word
off they went. There was the usual yell
ing and cheering and steam whistling and
booting, bit the boats were quickly out of
that, and the thing settled down into a test
of speed a id pluck and endurance between
the two as to which should reach the other
end of tie course first. But bless you,
there wasn't any doubt from the very first
in our boa- we didn't take the lead at
first. We didn't want to. We simply
wanted to bang close on the stern of the
boat for the first two miles or so. And we
had no tit able in doing that. Indeed the
other crew didn't work over hard those
first two miles either; but that suited us
all right. If they wanted to take it easy
tbe first hi. If of the race we were willing.
Tbe last mile was the part where we meant
to put in our work.
It was a wonderful spurt when it did
come. Al. at once, just past tbe third
mile stakti, they quickened their stroke,
considerin f that the time had come at last
to leave un behind them; and all at once
then our fellows quickened their stroke,
too, and j ist didn't let tbem do it. That
itroke oar of ours he looked in the cox
swain's eye and saw, without a word being
laid, what was going on; and the next
minute downweut his head almost into
the little st eerer's lap. And then at it they
went, eiglt men like one, working like
beavers. 1 leavers! Working like insane
men. They had to work. There wasn't
any get ou; of it or slack up to It or any
thing else. There was that big fellow
down at t le bottom of the row, working
back and forth with that long, quick,
tremendous stroke; and the next man had
to work with him, and the next with him,
tnd so on. And tbe boat started up as
though she had had an engine in her some
where; they were alongside the other crew
before yoo knew it, alongside and then
ahead, and then one length you could see
between 'em two three four five and
sben yon bated to count 'em, you telt so
Aad for th other fellows, and that's the
iray the ra x was won."
The young Harvard fellow ended his
itory rather abruptly and looked at his
three auditors, who had followed his nar
rative breithless, from start to finish.
"Wasn't that quite a scheme?" he asked,
with an air of pride.
"I should think so," answered one of tbe
two young Yale fellows soberly. He evi
dently did not approve the "scheme,"
though he did not say so.
"But how did tbey keep It quietf" asked
the second young Yale fellow. "I should
have thouj ht it would have been sure to
get out. I'idn't the stroke oar tbe pro
fessional, 1 suppose be was didn't he tell
"Not a b t of it," replied the young Har-
rard fellow. "Indeed, that's a part of the
itory, and rather the best part of it, too,
about him. He wasn't a professional at
11. Don't thikk it. Chiswick, as soou
after the roe a3 possible, got him into a
private rosm at tbe quarters, and tbe
treasurer t.f the University Boat club and
two or three pther fellows with him, aud
here tbe treasurer counted out 500 in
greenbacks and handed it to the stranger.
He was sti 11 a stranger; they didn't even
know his name. They asked him for that
" "I've w ritteo out a receipt here,' the
treasurer Kaid to him. 'If you will just
put your n ime to i:.'
'The stmuger took tbe money and the
'""'This,' suid he, looking at the roll of
hills in an odd sort of way. 'you wish to
pay me for pulling iu the race, as I under
"'Yes.' Slid the treasurer stiffly. I sup
soae that b- the plain truth of it. We don't
want it known, though, and we expect yon
to keep stiU about ii. I've put that In the
" 'Oh, you don't want me to mention It?
Very well; I won't, of course, if you'd pre
fer not; though" I've done nothing, I'm
sure, that I'm ashamed of.'
"The. treasurer bit bis lip. Will you
please sign that paper?' said he.
"The stranger sat down to the table and
drew an inkstand toward him. Then he
looked up again with a quizzical air.
" 'Upon my word, gentlemen, you have a
queer way of doing these things over here.
I've pulled a good many races I was stroke
oar in the Oxford boat in the last two races
with Cambridge but I don't think I was
offered pay for it before.'
"You may be sure that when he said that
that he bad been stroke oar of an Oxford
crew those fellows there pricked up their
ears and looked at him. And all at once it
dawned upon them that he was a very
gentlemanly appearing fellow. .Not that
he appeared any different or looked any
different. He had appeared well enough
all through, very much for that matter, as
Jennings himself would have appeared.
But they had, up to this moment, carried
the idea that he was a professional or some
thing very near that.
" 'However,' the stranger went on, 'I'll
sign it of course.'
"He dipped bis pen in the ink and then,
after a moment's more hesitation, signed
his name to the paper a very long name,
as the t reasurer, standing by, could see.
Then he got up and handed the receipt to
the latter. He handed him something else
with it the roll of bills.
'"You'll permit me to hand you this,'
said he, 'as a small contribution to your
college boating fund. I'm very much in
terested in rowing (indeed I came over here
almost on purpose to see your race, and I
think I've seen it very satisfactorily), and
I'm always glad to help the thing along.'
"Then he stepped to tbe door. There he
" 'Gentlemen, I bid you good day; and I
wish you success in a hundred coming
"He made a very grand bow as he
backed out of the room; and somehow or
other there wasn't a man of those left be
hind that didn't at the moment feel cheap.
"Billings, the treasurer, looked after him
until the door closed, and then he looked
at the receipt. His. eyes seemed to grow
big as they dwelt on it.
" 'What is it; Billings?' cried the others.
'What's his name? Read it up.'
"Then Billings read the name from tbe
paner 'George Frederick Allan Hervey
Walmer.' And be read a card that was
there with it, 'Lord Apsley, Brevoort
" 'By jove!' exclaimed he, the man's an
" 'Sure as you're saying it, he is,' cried
Buffington, one of the fellows. 'It's Lord
Apsley. I saw by the papers only yester
day that he was over here,'
" 'Well, upon my word,' declared Chis
wick. 'This is a joke on us. We've more
reasons than one for keeping the matter
quiet. They'd laugh us out of college if
they didn't kick us out, if this thing were
The young Harvard fellow paused again
This time he was through. The other
young fellow not either' of the young
Yale fellows, but tbe third young fellow
rose from his seat. The train was just
"I believe I change here," said he, "Al
low tome observe before I go, though,
that if what you've told us is a sample of
the way you do things at Harvard, then I
don't think you'd best say much to us
Princeton fellows about tbe men we play
on our football team." Then he was gone.
The two young Yale fellows looked sur
prised. "I didn't know that was a Princeton
man," one of them said.
"I did," declared the young Harvard
fellow. "I knew it all the time. I caught
sight of a Princeton freshman pin under
his coat. It was he I was telling t hat story
to. It wasn't true, you know. We don't
do things that way at Harvard. Don't
you believe itl But I just made that story
up reeled it off out of my own bead, yon
know for his special benefit. He is pleased
to death to get hold of such a thing; and
he'll take it back to college with him, and
they'll have a big talk over it, and it'll get
into the ew York papers, and It'll be all
over tbe country what wicked fellows we
Harvard men are." Charles Remington
