teachers but It was not so Intended
nor could it be very well taken that
way by any of them. 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.
