GEORGE WALLACE, of Woodland Township, handed us a curiosity Tuesday in the shape of an original teacher's report for a term of school taught in sub-district No. 3, Woodland Township by J.F. BAUGHMAN, thirty-nine years ago. The term commenced March 4, l86l, and closed August 24, l86l. The text books used were McGuffy's Orthography, McGuffy's Reader, Ray's Arithmetic, and the teacher's copies for writing. The school had a total enrollment of 44, and strange to say it was evenly divided, there being 22 boys and 22 girls. The ages of the boys ranged from 6 to l4 years and the girls from 5 to l7 years. Many of the pupils of this pioneer school still reside in Decatur County and it will be interesting to them to read the following list of pupils who attended the school:

BOYS -- W.A. Evans, James R. Evans, John Grogan, Timothy Grogan, Michael Grogan, Thomas Grogan, Joseph Wallace, George Wallace, Samuel Wallace, Henry Wallace, Al Wainscot, John M. Saul, Charles T. Lilly, Patrick Griffin, Daniel Griffin, James Daughton, Joseph Daughton, W.H.W. Hickman, John Mullin, Both. Mullin, Wm. Hinds, Wm. Barrett.

GIRLS -- Catharine Wallace, Elizabeth Wallace, Anna Wallace, Julia Daughton, Elizabeth Saul, Hester Saul, Isabelle Lilly, Melvina Lilly, Mary Wainscot, Sarah Wainscot, Hannah Griffin, Mary Evans, Catharine Evans, Phebe Wainscot, Lucinda Kilbern, Susan McDaniel, Mary Jane Saul, Mary Grogan, Ellen Wallace, Zamina Trembly, Sarrilda McDaniel, Mary Wallace.
