Rose Valley School Burns

The schoolhouse in Rose Valley burnt down Monday evening about five o'clock. The cause of the fire is unknown but believed to be from the stove being overheated. There was no one in the schoolhouse when it took fire and the teacher was at his boarding place which is a little over a half mile from the school. It is possible that school will be held now in the Rose Valley church. There were about thirty pupils attending the school.
