HISTORY OF ALPENA COUNTY

The wages paid to teachers in charge of township schools, range from $45 to $55 per month. The average attendance in the district schools is about twelve. The number of children in the three townships, between the ages of 5 and 20, according to the last census, was 249.
In the city there are four school-houses, one in the third ward; one in the second ward; one at Campbellville, and the large and handsome central building in the first ward. The central building contains several departments known as the primary, secondary, upper secondary, intermediate, grammar, and high schools. The course of education, commences with the lowest department, and requires about 10 years. The city schools are very complete, and a pupil who will apply himself"to the work before Mm, can attain a first-class education, at no expense to himself for tuition. The present superintendent is Prof. F. S. Dewey, who has been in charge of the city schools for several years. The Professor is aided by a corps of eight teachers—one male and seven female. For defraying the expenses of the schools for the coming year, the board of education has voted the sum of $6, 900. The number of school children in the city is about 1, 000. Besides the above, the catholic society has a private school attached to its organization, for the benefit of the children belonging to the society. Number of pupils 115. The central building fronts on Second street, and was built at a cost of $25, 000. It is a very handsome wooden building, in the shape of a Greek cross, each section being 34x70 feet in extent. The building is three stories in height. In the school district of Ossineke there are two school-houses.
