In 1911 and 1912 David and his sister, Ida, went to Mt. Morris, Illinois, to attend the academy there.  However, on Jan. 15, 1912, "Old Sandstone," the main building, burned down.  This must have been the dorrmatory also, as it was said that David lost all his clothes and other belongings in the fire.
