School News

The Rolla Public Schools will open September 1st, and continue in session for eight months.  There are about six hundred children in the district about three hundred and fifty of which are usually enrolled in the schools.  The principal, Mr. Godwin, has four assistants, whose salaries range from thirty to fifty dollars.  The Principal seems to be thoroughly in earnest and if all his assistants are equals of Miss Finley, his efforts will be well seconded.
