A paragraph in the Washtenaw Evening Times, of Saturday last, conveys the impression that the high school lawn K not receiving the care that it should have. This incited the Argus reporter to stroU up there and look at it. The west side is in very good condition, but would be improved by a more industi'ioua use of the lawn mower. So also on the south side, which is also in fairly good condition. But the east front cannot receive even this modifled commendation, having a soinewhat neglected.appearance. This may be partly accouñted for by the f act that that portion of the lawn was principally used for the laying down of building materials during the construction of the magniticent addition on the north side of the old building, and the grass has not yet recovered its pristine strength, or indeed reappeared at all in many places, though mauy weeds have, which unfortunately add to the unkempt appearance of that part of the lawn. The conclusión is inevitable that that portion of the grounds should have been properly prepared for seeding after its use as a dumping ground for building materials, and then freely sown with grass-seed. That this has not been done, may not, however, be the fault of the jahitor. But it should be attended to at once, by somebody.
