The Mitchell public schools will close the year’s work on Thursday of next week, April 25, with commencement exercises at the opera house that night. By reason of having had school on Saturdays since the holidays the term ends four or five weeks earlier than it otherwise would. This to get in a full summer’s work at farming - so much needed in these times - without the necessity of dropping out of school before the end of the term. The commencement exercises at the opera house will be free to all and everybody is invited. In addition to the parts to be taken by the members of the class there will be an address by Hon. Newton Wesley Gaines of Fremont, a speaker of much note, now a member of the Mutual Lyceum Bureau.
