Editors Democrat:—You ask me to
write some -thing for theforthcoming
special edition of your excellent- paper,
and suggest Some reminiscences of Uncle
Lyman Richardson's Harford school.
Originally it was called Franklin Acad
emy, but later this-'name was dropped
for the • more, pretentious: one named
above. - . .
Commencing with the fall term of tssl
spent some three years there, which
were among the most pleasant years of
my life: Uncle Lyman, as the student:
attectionatelv called hiM, ; was a faithful
instructor, looking after the mom: a .
well as the intellectual, tultMe of s
pupils. His occasional evening l''ectu:es
opened wide avenues of thoUght aid
Atirred in us ambitions, which undoubt,
edly did much. in shaping many a future
career. His course of lectures on the
'--Crusaders was,: : peculiarly instructive.
While describing those terrible 3 - ears,
Which lengthened into centuries, a .d
learnedly-explaining - the motives of t
er the Hermit and other leaders wt.°
were instrumental in throwing such e vast
hordes into the Orient in wave after
wave of slaughter, in order to rescue the,
Holy sepulehre from the lilOslemi- he
drew lessons of instruction from each
event and showed the final outcome to
on the whole, beneficial. - Mutual ac
-quaintance and commercial intercourse
softened asperities, - - and pointed, al
though- feebly, to the . .final" outcome of
all progress—human brotherhOod. •
• Then, there were our secret societies—
mathean—the latter composed entirely.
of ladies; the two former ee..tirely of
gents, for the sexes were not allowed to
visit each - other except on•sp:cial occa
sions; this rule was steadily enforced.
The.Eps. and Attphics. were of course,
in friendly nvalfy, each striving to ey
eel the other, especially at the public e
hibition. At 'tne close of each fall ai
winter term these societies took the.:
turns in these exhibitions; when origini
songs,,speeches ancl — coloquies': wes
publicy given. Then, at the close
the summer term in early July, bot
united ilia general exhibition, assistet
by the Philomatheans. The late Justice
- McCollum was always a leader in these
public functions, writing songs ar
"color - mice' for his society, the Amphics
"The Enthusiast and Misanthrope'
given. at one of his society's exhibitions
was a play 'worthy .of preservation ar
a wider audience. -Then, at a genes
exhibition he gave - "The Maine.Liqw
Laws" and -at another "The Kansa:
"Uncle Tom's -Cabin" was dramatis

great prestige, and swelled our heads

Those were halcyon days, for life was
new and flowr:y fields stretched out
