|Gives Birth to Twins in Jail.|
Born to Mr. Joe and Maggie Joe in the bastile of the city of Sedro Woolley on the morning of Tuesday, December 26, 1911 twins. Both boys as robust as a dynamite explosion. Mr. and Mrs. Joe unmindful of the delicate condition of the latter and according to established Siwash custom, were in the city to add to the holiday festivities as far as firewater and wet weather would permit, and there seems to have been an abundance of both. It was Maggie's state of inebriation and dampness that induced her arrest, rather than the more cogent reasons stated above. Maggie was given blankets, locked in the cell alone and the fire in the rotunda induced to greater heat. When Marshall Bell went into the outer room later on Maggie was at the cell door asking for a drink of water. After drinking she announced, "got a baby.: She had brought a young child to town with her and Bell thought someone had brought it in. He departed and on returning later found Maggie again standing at the cell door. She again announced "got'n other baby." Bell investigated and upon absorbing the true situation it flashed into his mind to turn in a fire alarm or call for help. He did the latter though Maggie did not need any such thing. Jap Holman came up and opened the cell door. Maggie walked out to the stove with the two kids each wrapped in one half of a city blanket. The news spread and there was a Siwash swoiree in the vestibule in a few minutes. Mr. and Mrs. Joe, each carrying a twin clad in city blanket departed (on foot) for their home near Lyman early in the forenoon of Tuesday, and no doubt gave the twins their first bath in the Skagit enroute.

| Holds Up Hobos With A Club.|
William Lashua of this city who works at the boom near the smelter, held up a couple of hobos who had broken into the boom house and stolen a few paris of socks. Will's weapon was a good club, and he must have demonstrated his ability to sue same as the hobos accompanied him to his home where he got the shotgun and then phoned to the sheriff, who came and took the marauders to jail. Fear does not seem to be one of Mr. Lashua's failings.
