Truble at Monroe School.
A report Saturday said that Miss Isaphene Gideon, who teaches the Independence school in the Goe. Malone district, had been assaulted. It is stated that the teacher had caused a son of Alex Freel to remain at school after the others were dismissed. The scholar started to leave the building and Miss Gideon forcibly detained him, which caused the lad to kake such an out cry that his mother who lives near the school, heard him and went his assistance. The mother assaulted the teacher. Miss Gideon caused her arrest, and a $25 fine was imposed.
