The mistake made by the Mist in not putting a date line on the article was only one which we feel called upon to explain -and even that so-called mistake -could not be taken seriously, if look ed at In the proper light. Kveiy teacher in the county knows whether on not the criticisms contained in that letter pertained to their parti cular case and if It did not then there was no harm done, for there were no names mentioned, while If it did and the shoe fit then It was a case where the article had accompli shed Its purpose. For the purpose of setting the St. Helens teachers right on the matter we have no heslti ey In saying that the article did not nor was it intended to apply to any one of them. The teachers in St. Hefens have no causo to take it to heart for . we all know that such criticisms of our teachers as were contained In that letter could not possibly appljt to them. We all know them and . their work too well for that, and while we do not attempt tp back up the assertions contained in the arti cle as applying to any other school, we will say that the columns ot the Mist are open to public discussion, and the article was dealing with a matter ot a public character so it was published. If any one has anything to say of a public nature either along those lines or In answer to the parti cular article, and will confine their arguments to the public nature and not personal, we are always ready and willing to print It.
