The building which .was completed during the suminer is one of the Jriost pretentious.and in every way satisfactory of i any country school building in Allen county. It is graceful in its ajchitcc- tural lines so that it presents i handsome outside appearance while within It has a school room capable of accommodating seventy pupils, a kitchenette for use wher community parties are tb be given a dressing room for women and another for men, and a suitable entry hall.. It has a good Bizet/ stage equipped with three or foui api^ro'priate curtains and is vteV furilished not only with daslu for the pupils and teacher but with- p good piano. There is -a basemen' under half the building for a heating plant The whole stmctarr cost only'$4500 which certainly U cheap enough considering all that the people got for their money.
