New School House Nearly Finished.
Murray's new school house is al
most completed, and it is the present
plan to open school in the new rooms
next Monday morning. The new
school building is certainly a valua
ble addition to Murray, and will be
pointed to with great pride by all her
people. It will be a joy for the young
folks and a pleasure to the older
ones. The building committee which
was composed of the three directors
W. C. Boedeker, Dr. C II. Cilmore
and C. D. Spangler w ith the addition
of (). A. Davis ami John Edmunds,
certainly deserve a great ileal of cred
it for the manner in which the erec
tion of the new building has been
looked after. Theie i.s no doubt that
the taxpayers have saved money by
their close attention to the work, and
in the selection of the contractor. The
building complete with heating plant
will cost in the neighborhood of .-?.", "00,
and is certainly cheap- for structure
and the workmanship received. There
will be amide room to accommodate
the schools for future ears, as there
are live large rooms, well ventilated,
ar.d excellent light, three of which
will be used at the present, with two
in reserve for increased enrollment.
The holies of the vicinity are ar
ranging for a dedication service and
dinner on next Friday, November 13.
A n excellent program is being pr e
pared and a dinner will be served by
them, the proceeds of which will go
to a fund for the purchasing of school
equipment. At H:3 a. m. Miss Lath
rop will deliver an address, which will
be followed by others. There are
sports of various kinds, including a
bail game on the program for the
young people. It will be a gala day
for Murray and Murray people, and
evrybody in this locality should be
in attendance. Come, aid bring your
families and stay all day.
The new books will be purchased
The library will be open Wednes
