School District No. 2 (Clear Creek) has a new school house which is said to be one of the very best in the county, outside of the towns. It is built of stone, and is in size 27 x 43, with 12-foot ceiling. Parks and O’Brien were the contractors, and one of the Board informs us they have done an excellent job, and on very reasonable terms.
Third street, from Main to the Court House, has been macadamized this week. It will probably be completed to the railroad in a short time.
