school SCHOOL ATTENDANCE 555; HIGH SCHOOL 100
The public schools opened up Tuesday morning with about the same attendance as last year, the total enrollment of Wednesday being 555, and the high school 100. There is a larger attendance from town and smaller from outside, but Supt. McMacken thinks the country will furnish its full quota later one.
A room has been set aside for the Red Cross ladies who will meet there each Tuesday and Friday as usual, and the domestic science department will work in conjunction with them, the students taking over and doing some of the Red Cross work as part of their duties.
In this connection we are asked to state that the cooking department has on hand a large supply of quart and pint cans and the public is invited to bring in their fruit and vegetables for canning free, as practice work for the students. The cans will be turned over at cost -- 4 and 3 cents each, which is less than the present price.
Plans are on foot for a night school, to begin in about a month if a sufficient number are interested. Supt. McMacken requests that all send in their names promptly so that plans may be perfected soon. If there are not enough to make it worth while the project will be dropped.
wooden cop POLICEMAN KIDNAPED (sic) AND NEARLY DROWNED
Marysville policemen lead a perilous life. At least the one that holds his beat on the corner of State and Third. Only a few weeks ago he was knocked down and literally broken to pieces, body and limb, and had not been back on the job more than two weeks when, on Sunday night last, some returning revelers from Vancouver with a tonnean full of booze, kidnaped the trusty sentinel and carried him off, dropping him in the Snohomish river on the way to Everett where he was found by a fisherman floating with the tide a derelict without a rudder. Our townsman, A. Lockert, proprietor of the fish market, brought him back in his car and restored him to the care of his superior officer, Marshal Pat Powers, who again placed him on duty. The only damage suffered was the loss of the arrow, his kidnapers evidently not desiring that he should be able to point to the place from whence they come. Moral -- nail him down.

lumber i.w.w. S. T. Asbery was called as a witness Monday at Everett on the trail of Oscar Carlson against the steamer Verona which carried the I.W.W. bunch to Everett on the fateful 5th of November last. Carlson was not an I.W.W. member but was allowed to go on the boat and was shot up pretty badly as a result. Mr. Asbery was in Seattle and tried to get on the Verona with his family but was barred, being told the boat was chartered. "Sandy" took the other boat which did not reach Everett but was turned back at Mukilteo.
