CHAPTER V

The chapel bell was tolling. It clanged impatiently as if anxious to get on with the real business of Sunday morning. The echo of the bell could never quite die before a new clang picked it up and hurried it further towards the hour of eleven.
On the top passage of Wren's, Denis heard the bell and ran along to Ockley's room. Where the devil had he put his topper yesterday ? Through Ockley's window the clanging came faster now and more confused. Single peals could scarcely be heard in the crescendo of din. It was the last minute before the bell ceased ringing and he suddenly saw his top-hat lying, where it had rolled, under a chair. Denis jumped down the stairs two or three at a time and raced across the street, brushing his hat on the sleeve of his arm. As he reached the top of the chapel steps the bell gave a few sharp peals and died away. The organ grumbled mightily. He shoved his way down the pew to his new place, and the marker ticked his name. The end boy in each pew had a small book with the names printed inside. He wrote the absentees' names on a slip, and during the service a boy walked gravely down the gangways, collected the slips and handed them to the master on duty, who checked them from his vantage point in the stalls. There was little use in shielding an absentee by not marking him out, as the master counted the boys in the pew and compared them with the printed list.
As the quick notes of the bell died away a group of boys had sprung to life in the ante chapel. The sixth form " ram " was about to make its entrance. In double file the twenty top boys in the school fell into slow step and advanced up the aisle. Ten of them were scholars and branched off to
