T'his fine building, standing as it does high above the neighboring houses, caught the full strength of the Wednesday storm. When the glasses of the attic window broke, the wind lifted the roof, which, loosened, was then blown entirely from the building. In the rttie was kept many valuable and necessary things not in daily use. These went with the roof. The Annex faired better; some slates and tiling were taken off,. but the damage was r-omparatively slight. The total to bolth buildings has been estimated at $.7500O. The loss by the rains which followed the storm is in furniture pit tures, casts, etc., much of which has been paid for by the patrons directly contributing through lawn parties. etc. Many trees were uprooted, but the Iveoaks and hackberries still stand. irepair to the Annex has begun, and it is expected that the Kindergarten and third and fourth grades will' be at work In their proper quarters next week, Monday, 31st. The strong, fine walls and rooms of the main building will be attended to next The date is not at present an nounced.
