JACK RANGER’S GUN CLUBOr From Schoolroom to Camp and TrailAn excerpt from the book:For a few seconds there was the sound of a confused stumbling about.Blows were struck, but they seemed to land on desks and tables.Mingled with them were the murmurs of strong French and German words,and the heavy breathing of the two teachers.Then, as the door at the farther end of the room opened, allowing light from the hall to come in, a voice asked:Whats the matter?Matter enough! I am terrible insult! exclaimed Mr. Socrat from behind a table where he was crouching.I must be apologized by alretty! muttered Mr. Garlach, in deep tones.What is this all about? demanded Dr. Mead, who had made the first inquiry. What does it mean?Ach! I vill tell you! spoke the German teacher.I will leave at once razzer zan stay where he iss! came from theFrenchman.Come to my office, said Dr, Mead. I am afraid its another of the boys pranks.The two Instructors, muttering against each other, followed the head of the academy down the corridor.Nows our chance to sneak! exclaimed Jack. Say, it was the best ever!What was in the notes that made them so mad? asked Sam.Why, the one Garlach got stated that the Germans were a race of thieves and robbers and would never be anything better. Professor Garlach, on the other hand, seemed to have written to his French friend that the latter nation was nothing but a lot of long-legged frog-eaters, who were more ladies than they were men!No wonder they went up into the air! exclaimed Bony Balmore. It was like a match to gunpowder.Lucky we could turn the lights out, commented Nat Anderson, or theyd be fighting yet.Maybe they will have a duel, suggestedJohn Smith.
