Terre Haute
- Miss R. Mayor's school closed in District #2 a few days since. The average attendance was only 2 less than the entire number of pupils on the roll, and three, John Bryan, Laura and Milton Walker, aged respectively 11, 9 and 7 were not absent a day during the 4 month term-of the muddiest roads ever known in the country. But Miss Mayor has the tact to keep up the interest of her school and bring out the little fellows, if reaching the schoolhouse was a possibility.
