The dance that was given at Needy

in regard to the facts in the case and
not oblige a county paper to publish
things that strain the truth even to the

part in the discussion at Tualalin,
March 30, and no doubt enjoyed it as
well as the bountiful dinner prepared
by the good people of that place. If he
will investigate the matter, he will
find that the paper read by the writer

It appears as if our article in regard to
the Washington county institute held at
Tualatin on March 30th, somewhat of
fended the Stafford people because it in
termingled their teacher's name in a
report that brings discredit to the pro
fession. Now if their teacher did not
want discredit brought to the profession
Bhe should haye attended the Clackamas
county institute held at Mt. Pleasant on
the same date, where she had been given
a topic for discussion, instead of going
the opposite direction and deserting the
work that was assigned her. This is
not the first time Bhe has disappointed
the Clackamas county teachers and she
is a Washington county teacher, too.
Now the writer's estimation of the in
stitute is about as much over estimated
as be over estimated the building which
the Staff oid merchant was eoing to
build. He said it was to be two stories
high and 40x40. Now if my eyesight
doesn't deceive me, and I don't think it
does, the building is one story and
12x14. Quite a contrast, isn't it? VVe
count the truth sacred and say nothing
but what we can prove. We said that
those who were over to the institute re
port that there would not have been
much of an institute if it had not been
for the Clackamas county delegation, ex
cepting the dinner. Here are the fig
ures; judge for yourself. Those on the
program were Harry E. Coleman, Mrs.
M. O. Saltus, John Holman, Helen J.
Ewing, L. H. Vincent, J). II. Mosher,
Laura Thompson, Chas. Hanson and H.
A.Bali. Those who were present and
carried out their part of the program
were H. A. Ball, C. S. ; L. H. Vincent,
Chas. Hanson and D. H. Mosher. The
latter three were from Clackamas. An.
other erroneous statement was the one
in reference to the little piece that the
fourth had taken a fortnight to memor
ize, ' The institute was not given out in
this country only a day previous to its
occurrence and he , did not memorize
what he had to say. The reason the
correspondent jumped onto us so rough
shod is, I suppose, because he is a great
friend of the school-mam.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
Sweet Briar Lodge.
Please allow me through the medium
of the Courier-Herald to express my
thanks and appreciati in of the kind
friends and neighbors of Maple Lane,
who so pleasantly surprised us Saturday
evening, April 13th, 1Z
Since my first arrival in this neigh
borhood, the people seem to have vied
with each other iu vheir efforts to make
me, feel at home in their midst, and the
fraternal feelings engendered thereby
went a long ways toward reconciling me
to my enforced bachelorhood of over
five months duration, c msed by the lon;
absence o' the good wife who was sick
in the east.
After the arrival of my family and
through the long sickness of tho good
wife, the neighbors simply redoubled
their exertions in our behalf, and it is
simply unpardonable thoughtlessness
on my part that has caused this long
dil.iy in making public acknowledge
ment of my gratitude and confessing my
indebtedness to them for b11 their kind- -t.ess
to me and mine.
But such events as the one above men
tioned make one feel ten years younger,
and also that life is well woith the can
dle, they art' the mile-stones alon the
pathway of lite and our only regret at
sU'-h times is tint
"N'ae man can tether tima or tide,"
"As b'es flee hmie wi' loadso' treasure,
The minutes wing'd their way wi' pleas
and before we lealiz-the fact it is lima
to say farewell, and alter a mcst enjoy
able evening the good people took their
departure, not however uutil the good
man of the house was induced by the
blandishments of the ycung ladies to
make frantic and futila en teavors to
trip the light fantastic," which gave
the young people cause for much merri
trent, and earned for h raself a curtain
lecture on his foolishness. St:U, I like
tbe lassies "Gude forgive' mel" and
we all wish them God speed.
Again, my kind friends, accept my
thanks ; come again and God bless each
and every one of yon, old and youne, is
my earnest prayer.
