"No, Indeed, not I. It is not I that have been
making mischief," Mid Collins, with such a mys

pushed him aside, aad ran first up the stairs, two
steps at a time.

As anon as the boys were dlsmlseed to their
rooms, Collins called a meeting of the principal

They ail agreed in indignation against Dr.
Wise, and sympathy with Ljon. Lyon bad so
long been looked up to as the chief ornament and

membered other alight circumstances, which
made them more sure than ever that they had

"it Is an odd thing, though," said Stanley,
"that Lyon should be so very sure that Urey is
innocent ao lire, that he had rather be suspect
ed himself than bring a charge against him. It's
an odd thing."
" It's what I call a generous thing, now,"
Mid Wilson ; " I like Lyon all the better for It."
