Work has begun on the new school house at Midway. J. P. Graham of Durant has the contract. The price is $11,527.
School will continue in the old building until the new one is completed.
The new building will be of brick and modern in every respect, making this one of the best country schools in the county.
H. B. Reunsaville is superintendent of this school. Lush Brown, S. E. Whisenhunt, and W. H. Paddock compose the school board. Miss Stella Owens is one of the teachers.
Midway is five miles southwest of Caddo near the Fish Hatchery.
Boggy Bridge Burned
Investigation by county and highway officials has failed to reveal the origin of the fire that destroyed the bridge spanning Clear Boggy, on the Jefferson Highway, north of Caney Saturday, it was announced Sunday.
The bridge was about 300 feet long, and probably will have to be replaced with new material as all the timbers and steel beams are damaged to such an extent that it is not thought they can be utilized for repairs.
