Describing the lighter side of
school life, Ian Hay, the Scotch novel
tst, tells of a schoolmaster,who called
his boys together.
"A very unpleasant and discredit.
able thing has happened," he said.
"The municipal authorities have re.
cently erected~ a pair of extremely
ornate and expensive lampposts out
side the residence of the mayor of the

"Last Sunday evening, between
seven and eight .o'clock, they were at
tacked and wrecked, apparently by
volleys of stonle."
There was a faint but appreciative
murmur from those members of the
school to whom the news of this out
rage was now made public for the
first time. But a baleful flash from
the schoolmaster's spectacles re
stored instant silence.
"Several parties of boys." he con
tinued, "must have passed these lami)
posts on that evening, on their way
back to their respective houses after
chapel. I wish to see all boys who
In any way participated in tile out
rage in my study directly after second
school. I warn them that I shall make
a severe example of them."
His voice rose to a blare.
"I will not have the prestige and
fair fame of the school lowered in the
eyes of the town by the vulgar bar
barities of a parcel of ill-conditioned
little street boys. You may go!"
The audience rose to their feet and
began to steal silently away. But
they were puzzled. The Old Man was
no fool, as a rule. Did lie really iniag
Ine that chaps would be such mugs
as to own lip?
But before the first boy reached
the door the head spoke again.
"I may mention," lie added very
gently, "that the attack upon the-er
lampposts was witnessed by a gentle
man resident in the neighborhood, a
warm friend of the school. He was
able to i(entify one of the culprits,
whose name is in my possession. That
And quite enough, too. When the
schoolmaster visited his study after
second school lie found 17 malefactors
meekly awaiting chastisement.
But lie never divulged the name of
the boy who had been recognized, or,
for that matter. lie identity of the
warm friend of the school. I won
