To the Ktlitor of the BKK : By a mis
understanding in my allldavit , pub
lished in the paper * , concerning the
punishment of my child at school , the
name of Miss Buchdl appears. This
ought not to bo , as she had nothing
whatever to do with the punishment ,
and I do not want to do her any injus
tice , she being wholly blameless and in
no way concerned in the cuhO. I should
not have made the aflldavit had I sup
posed it was to bo made public. The
alUdaylt was secured with the under

Couxcir , BLUKKS , Dec. . To the
Editor of the BKK : Please allow mo a
few lines in your valuable paper in jus
tice to the public. I have time anil
again warned the public about weighing
on the so-called city scales that have no
authority and pay no license to the city ,
and have not for the past live or fa
years. For proof , I refer the public to
the city clerk's books. Thcro is a sys
tem of short weights that protects the
boiler and not the buyer , by weighing
on scales not authorised by the city. I
am powerless to protect the confjiimor ,
as I get no protection from the council.
When I was elected to the olHee of city
welghmtifctor , I made a proposition to
the council , that it they would give mo
an ordinance that would protect the
public , I would nut a deputy in the
upper and 0110 in tno lower part of the
city , if npccfrsarv , to accommodate the
public weighing. The council failed to
give mo this authority therobv the city
receiving no .revenue from" private

, and the public ix system of
short woitf his as my books will show , by
parlies Who have weighed on private
scales , and re-wolghcd on city scales ,
It was only yesterday 1 discovered a
mistake of o90 jKHinds on ono load to a
leading firm , and in many ether in
stances , discrepances too palpable to beef
of daily occurrence that prove conclu
sively a system of short weights over
which the city weighmaster has no con
trol by testing private scales or other
wise. Yours respectfully ,

Mr. Lawson , ono of the board of edu
cation , scemq to dilTcr somewhat in
opinion from other members of the
board. He does not favor corporal pun
ishment in the schools under any cir
cumstances. He believes that the teach
ers should have authority to send a re
fractory punil home. Suspension from
school privileges should lake the plaeo
of brute force. He docs not , therefore ,
endorse the use of the three foot slick.

ilicd for his grip , as ho was ready to

Waste of Tissue Without Ilcpnlr.
Vigor begins to decline when dyspep

ease , prolonged through neglect , en
tails grievous loss of llesh and serious
waste of muscular tissue. To invigor

stomach is rcauirc.d. There is none
comparable to Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ers , since it institutes , and if con-
.inued , perpetuates a repair of the tis
sues , which may have declined in bulk ,
vigor and elastic-ally in consequence of
non-assimilation of the food. No time
should bo lost in beginning the rcpaira-
Ave woe-ess , nor should ! there be any
delay in removing those ailments of
frequent occuronee , which contribute
to and foster an enfeebled "condition of
