Stanley Browne Protests Against a Correspondence Item
Editor Review - I saw in the Milford Jottings last week a serious reflection upon several parties of high standing among us and wish to enter a protest against such correspondence. I am certain that in the rush of business and preparation for your big Christmas edition the following item was overlooked or you would never have permitted its publication. It reads as follows: " School has begun in Otter Creek No. 7. Oh, there is nothing like having a school even if one has to buy it." Now I do not know who the writer is, I will not even try to guess who he or possibly she may be for fear I might be led to think envy had inspired it. I do know that it is an insult to N. P. Larson, who is the director, to accuse him of using his little office for illicit gain and when one knows who has been accused of selling a school the charge falls of its own weight, as we are all to well acquainted with "Peter " to countenance such stuff, but no more preposterous is the charge against Larson than when it is known that the same squib accuses George Jordan of buying a school for his daughter Jennie, who is the teacher. Such silly charge against such people as N. P. Larson and George Jordan and against a steady, competent and most estimable young lady and teacher as Miss Jordon, do not deserve notice, but I make this wholly disinterested protest in the name of right and common decency.
The Review greatly regrets that any gentleman took the item mentioned as personal to himself or others. Of course it is not the intention of the Review to publish anything discreditable to such well known and reputable people as Mr. Larson or Jordan and his daughter. We are not at present advised as to what our correspondent meant by this item and it is quite possible that no evil was meant by it. The Review never intentionally injures any man.
*A rather peculiar incident. About two moths ago Irwin Christianson was awakened early in the morning by a commotion among his chickens. His dog rushed out and immediately he heard a shot. The dog came back apparently in distress and upon examination it was found that the ball had gone clear through his body just back of the heart. The dog seemed to get all right however but last Sunday afternoon when playing about he suddenly fell down and died from what is supposed to be the effects of the wound. Pete is looking with blood in his eye for the man who fired the shot.
