THIS TEACHER USED HER RULER FREELY
WINSTED, Conn. Sept. 28 — Complaint has been lodged with the school authorities of the place against a new teacher, Miss Eliza Reed, of Badford, O., who, it is said, makes pupils who put their lead pencils in their mouths stand on tip toes beside the blackboard and hold their hands up to a certain mark. If their fingers fall below the mark she cracks them with a ruler, it is asserted, and has already broken a dozen rulers. Several angry parents have taken their children from the school, whch opened last Tuesday.
