HAPPY DAYS, SCHOOL HOUSE BURNED DOWN
But Vacation is Short Lived-School To Be Held in Private House In Washington
When the pupils of district No. 5. Washington twp. got up Sunday morning
they heard the cheering news that their school house had burned down early
in the morning, the fire having started by an unknown cause. The
schoolhouse and contents were a total loss.
No one saw the fire except a farm hand on a nearby farm. He got up about 5
o'clock and noticed the glowing embers. Going over there he saw that there
was no use in spreading an alarm.
District No. 5 had good luck with its insurance. A few months ago when A.
F. Kilker was elected secretary he noticed there was no insurance, so eh
went and asked for the board's permission to take out $500 on the building
and $150 on the contents, which is now practically pure velvet.
A new school house will be built as soon as possible.
In the meantime school will be held in the Henry Harms home.

In spite of the storm last Sunday a fine attendance was shown in all
departments and splendid results obtained. We are hoping to establish new
records this week.
Next Sunday is Thanksgiving Sunday. What a tremendous pull at the human
heart results when we think of God's mercies toward us. Surely the most
unfortunate of us can find many things for which to be thankful. So we
invited you to a special Thanksgiving service of consecration and
dedication, of genuine Christian praise. The pastor's subject will be "Our
Thanksgiving Obligation." An opportunity will be given to unite with the
church at this service.
In the evening a service of evangelism commencing at 7:30.
There will be baptismal services the last Sunday of the month, and those
desiring to unite with the church should do so this Sunday if possible.
