In reply to a few lines that Lengthy,of

feel it our duty to make a few notes.
We suppose that if he could have found
words adequate to have thanked our
most worthy editor of the Courier-Herald
for granting us, the learned ones of
Frog l'ond, space in bis paper, which he
says we ask for, but di I not. He would
not have dared to utter them on account
of their unfitness. We, the "learned
ones of Frog Pond," may have some
book learnur but have not reached the
state that our foreheads reach almost to
the back of our head, and we don't
evade our contradictors by nearly saying
a thing is so. You still hold that there
was no exaggeration in regard to the
building referred to you, said it was to
be two stories high. Is it? Further,
that. our friend gave a very nice list of
those named on the printed program,
but as few of those were present, it was
stated thit the meeting would be wholly
informal and all present requested to
take part. Why did the superintendent
Bay that the program would be infor
mal? Because the Washington county
teachers who were on the program were
some other place instead of where they
should have been. The printed pro
grams also asked friends and patrons of
the school to be present and take part,
so he was merely making a restatement
Well, if Lengthy has never cut down a
cherry tree, he formed on important fac
tor in planting one on Arbor Day. He
also holds the truth about as sacred as
the people he has heard of.
In regard to the former notes you re
ferred to it should have read nine days
Instead of one day.
You seem very anxious to accuse us of
cutting down cherry trees.
