Ring For Jeeves

The problem of disposing of his beautiful, stately, but interminably damp home, is becoming quite a headache for William, ninth Earl of Rowcester.

    "Sir?"

    "Captain Biggar won three thousand quid on the Oaks." "Indeed, sir? A consummation devoutly to be wished."' "Yes," said the Captain sombrely.. Three thousand pounds I won, and the bookie did a bolt." Rory stared. "No!"

    "I assure you."

    "Skipped by the light of the moon?" "Exactly."

    Rory was overcome.

    "I never heard anything so monstrous. Did you ever hear anything so monstrous, Jeeves? Wasn't that the frozen limit, Bill?"

    Bill seemed to come out of a trance.

    "Sorry, Rory, I'm afraid I was thinking of s
