crime McClafflin,
It is reported that about eighty young men from town and elsewhere indulged in an old fashioned brawl on the street last Saturday night at a late hour. It is a safe bet that that nothing of the kind would have happened if nightwatchman McClafflin had been on the job. Mack has only one arm, but the boys have a wholesome respect for him and when he says. "Quite" they always know he means business. Personally, we think Mack should be put back on the job.

Crushed to Death By Falling Tree.
Last Monday, while working at the Rucker Bros. logging camp near Getchell, John Nicholls, aged 46 years, met death by having a large tree fall on him. He must have died instantly as his chest was badly broken in and all of the ribs on the left side were broken. The left arm and leg were also badly fractured. It is not know just how the accident happened and Nicholls was not missed until noon when the men gathered for dinner. A search was made and he was finally found.

letter to editor Kilby, Clara
Local and Personal - Dear Mr. Bellows. Dear Sir: Will you kindly correct a mistake in this Glove for last week which stated that I intended to leave for Sedro Woolley Sunday to see All Audis and take him to Burlington. Now Mr. Bellows, Al and I are the best of friends that's all, but I don't thank that friendship justifies me to run around the country and look for him or take him around. Al has a mother, sister, and brother in Burlington, one sister in Seattle and a brother in Three Lakes who think enough of him to take care of him when he is sick. I haven't hired out as a chaperon for men, to look after them or take them home. I don't want you to feel sore at this but as a white woman it places me in a compromising position and I don't like it. I don't care how you word it but I want it plainly understood to my friends and others that I didn't go to Sedro Woolley Sunday and had no such intention and I want this impression corrected. Trusting you as a gentleman to do this for me, the favor of which I will appreciate I remain... Yours respectfully, Mrs. Clara Kilby... (Editor added) Ed... The local to which Mrs. Kilby refers was sent in a letter to the Globe and as we did not understand the situation, we published it. We do not know positively who is the author of the same, but would suggest that the person use a little more discretion in the future. We believe in the proverb: "Judge not lest ye be Judged."

Local and Personal - Levi Nutter, of Sunnyside, had a narrow escape last Saturday afternoon, while pulling stumps. The choker slipped and struck him on the side of the face making an ugly cut. N. K. Pelky, a neighbor, hustled him into his rig and brought him to Dr. Munn's office in a hurry. It is thought he will not be badly disfigured by the accident.
death Stephens, Wm.
Dad Stephens Passes to Long Rest.
Death is caused by Apoplexy after His Long Illness. The entire community was shocked last Friday to learn that Mr. Wm. Stephens had suffered a stroke of apoploxy while at work in his garden just after he was getting about after the long illness he had undergone since early December. His condition was very low and the doctors had little hope of recovery. He was unconscious most of the time and passed away Tuesday evening shortly before his son. L. L. arrived back from Oregon. All the other children were gathered at the bedside. Mr. Stephens was ... years of age and died on the eve of his wife's 63rd birthday which fell on Wednesday. He was born in Iowa in 1844 and at the age of eight made the trip to the Willamette valley in Oregon with his parents by ox-team. There he grew to manhood and was married near Oakland OR in 1867 to Miss Rosa Jane Annesley who had been his most faithful and loving wife and the mother of his family of sterling sons and daughters and who now, with the children is left to mourn his loss. The children are Sen. E. Milton Stephens, Elmer M. Stephens, L. L. Stephens, Ela Malone, D. F. Stephens, Milly Douglas and Mrs. Volney Shrum. In 1882 the family moved to Marysville, this county, Mr. Stephens, who had been operating a flour mill in Oregon for many years, coming up first and later sending the eldest son, E. Milton, to decide upon a location. They found a farm at Marysville, that suited them, and the family became residents of Snohomish county. Here the young men grew to manhood and got interested in the shingle business and moved up to Monroe 15 years ago and found the lumber mill business now known as the Wagner-Wilson Co. The parents followed in 1904 and since that time the deceased and his worthy wife have been prominently identified with the civic, social and Masonic life of the community. Mr. Stephens was an ardent mason and quickly brought about the organization of the lodges of the Masonic order and Eastern Star. He was the first master of the Monroe. He served as a councilman for several years and would have been elected mayor had been willing to serve. Mr. Stephens, or "Dad" Stephens as he was familiarly know, will long be the object of regret in Monroe. His was a character of absolutely simple faith and stern but kindly justice, that made him a marked citizen of any community. What he considered his duty he did without prejudice or fear. He was straight forward, sincere and kindly and deeply-interested in the affairs of all those he liked. He was highly regarded and loved in Monroe. Funeral services for the deceased were held Friday morning in Odd Fellows hall conducted by the masons and interment took place at Everett, George Stephens and wife and Robert Stephens, brother of Mr. Stephens, arrived from Oregon to be present at the funeral. The funeral was conducted with high Masonic honor according to the ritual of the grand lodge. Grand Lodge Master E. S. Prescott arrived to conduct the services.
fire Mutual Mill
The Mutual Mill Which Narrowly Escaped Destruction By Fire on Thursday.
About 11 o'clock last Thursday the blow pipe of the boiler at the Mutual Mill burst, and in a second the mill was filled with fire and steam. Plenty of water and prompt action on the part of the crew is all that saved the plant from destruction. There was nobody injured, but most of the men were badly frightened. The damage was soon repaired and the mill was started again this (Friday) afternoon.
history - grange
Granges in this Neighborhood.
Near Marysville there are several hustling, bustling, live-wire granges that are growing and doing a wonderful work among the farmers that constitute their membership. Tulalip grange meets at the Sunnyside schoolhouse and ministers to the fraternal wants of a group of farmers who live upon ranches ranging from this city to Cavaliero's corner. Kellogg Marsh Grange meets in Union Hall, about two miles and a half northeast of this city. It is one of the finest and most progressive granges in the country. The mast of the count grange. Mr. T. D. Davies, is one of the leading members of Kellogg Marsh grange. He is a man of strong character, intelligence, wide reading and earnest devotion to his calling. His hospitable home at Union Hall is a model of neatness and modern convenience and contains a library and collection of miscellaneous books, monographs and magazine files that institutes the constant quest of its owner for useful information. Mrs. Davies is lecturer of the local grange. Miss Nielson, a cousin of Mrs. Davies adds greatly to the interest in this grange by her genius as a violinist. C. H. Quast is the master of Kellogg Marsh grange. He is also the builder in that section and the highways up in the direction testify to his efficiency and the "rustle" he evidently gets on when he is either after the money to make the work go or actually doing the work. He has certainly done some fine stretches of road construction. Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Hayes are both members of the official staff in the county grange. Mr. Hayes is one of the really earnest workers who can always be counted on as safe on the best interests of the order. Earnest, in speech, ready to debate, strong in his convictions and logical in argument, he is a pillar of strength in the fraternity. Mrs. Hayes is the peer of her husband. Formerly for many years a school teacher, she acquired the habit of impromptu speaking and a readiness in debate far beyond the average of her sex. Some of her views seem peculiar to her fellow grangers. but she none the less earnest in their advocacy on that account. Although probably ninety percent of the membership in this county favor woman's suffrage, Mrs. Hayes unhesitatingly opposed it and unconsciously furnished the best possible arguments in favor of that measure by the very strength of a plucky fight she, a woman, was able to put up in support of her convictions.
