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.

and third and fourth grades will' be
at work In their proper quarters next
