iiii. Editoh Caiiio Bi-'li.ktin: A recent
number of your paper contains an article
on "I'lio Whipping Post in Schools," in
which 1 1 1 j 1 1 -1 1 co is done Mr, Parsons,
formerly of your city, now n teacher nnd
superintendent ot public chooh of
Evaiiiville. The urilcle says ".Mr. Par
sons llogged one ot his puplM so severely
that paralysis ensued, and It .is doubt
ful If the boy ever regained the tio of
'J'hc truth of the mater Ktho boy wa
crippled before tho whipping, which ban
uolhlii to do with hU parulysl. The
only marks visible were on his ear, which
was somewhat swollen and black and
blue, nnd a scratch on the crippled hand,
neither ot which seemed to bs very se
vere. While them are some who blame Mr.
Par-oii- for his severity, the majority ol
our people fully Ju-tlfy him In all he did.
'llie.-chool board examined the whole
matter carefully and iin inlmou-ly sus
tained him in tbeexercNe of uei-di'd m.d
wholesome discipline. The jury before
whom the matter was tried lor two days',
acquitted him. to the 'atl-factlou of every
one who took tho trouble to become ac
quainted with the facts.
This explanation I due to Mr. Par-
on. as welt as to the the excellent
school board of this city. Yours truly,
