We learn from Mr. D.P. Myers, of Mukwonago, Wis., that last Friday about four hundred people were witnessing a school exhibition in the second story of the village school house, when the floor gave way and about half the audience were precipitated to the first floor, which also gave way and let them down in to the cellar. Strange to say, no lives were lost, though many were badly bruised, and Frederick Patterson had a leg broken. Those left above were taken down through the windows and with the aid of ropes and ladders, and those in the cellar helped up in the same way.
