The Schools Will Not Close

     In answer to the question whether the schools will be closed on account of the death of President McKinley, Superintendent Emerson says that in view of the decision of those in charge of the arrangements to have no public ceremony and to remove the remains from Buffalo on Monday morning at 7 o’clock, he does not consider it wise to close the schools, and they will consequently be open as usual on Monday.
     The principals and teachers are requested by the Superintendent to explain the significance of the sad event to their pupils and to impress upon their minds its obvious lessons.
