HIGH SCHOOL DESTROYED BY BLAZE.

Calumet, Mich., Jan. 8. -- Fire destroyed the Washington High School today, although everything was done to save it.

The fire broke out in the chemical laboratory on the third floor and seemed to spread very quickly over the entire building.

The building was valued at $150,000. This is partly covered by a $100,000 insurance.
