We are informed that several children have been taken out of school
at this place on account of the vile talk used by some of the coarser children
about the play grounds and on the way home. This is a terrible state
of affairs, and it is too bad that the proper ones cannot catch the culprits
at this practice and wear out one armful of hickory switches on them, and
put them on bread and water for a good long period. Each parent should
call his boy or girl to a strict accounting, and try to remedy the evil.
