YOUNTSVILLE SCHOOL - 1894

Source: Weekly Argus News, Jan 4, 1894 p 4

When Ripley Township began the erection of a new school house at Yountsville last summer, the good citizens of that thriving village conceived the idea of adding a second story at their own expense and dedicating the same to town hall purposes. The scheme was carried into execution and Saturday night was set aside for the dedication. The country for miles about turned out to assist in the celebration and Crawfordsville was represented by quite a number of delegates in addition to the Music Hall orchestra, which furnished music inspiration for the multitude. There was an interesting program of entertainment which opened with a fitting address of welcome by Trustee Snyder. County Superintendent Zuck gave an interesting talk on "The Growth of our School System," and was followed in turn by James Galloway, who gave all a hearty welcome and wished them a pleasant evening. More music was followed by a declamation for a case prize of $20. There were 8 speakers and all acquitted themselves with much credit but the judges thought that James M. Stubbins' rendition of "The Vagabond" entitled him to first place while "Yacob Snyder's Ride" by Fred Maxwell was accorded second. There were volunteer songs and recitals and the managers fairly outdid themselves in their endeavors to make the occasion a membeorable one. During the evening the ladies of the Methodist Church served oysters and llunch in the school room. - kbz
