| THREE FIRES IN AN HOUR |
Sparks set Fire to Three Houses Last Tuesday - Quickly Put out with Little Damage
Three blazes within one hour is probably the record for fires in Marysville, and this happened this week. Last Tuesday forenoon about eleven o'clock fire was discovered on the roof of Mrs. Morgan's building on Front street, directly west of W. S. Guy's livery barn. The quick response of the fire department checked the fire so that practically no damage was caused to the building and very little to the contents, the only damage to them being a little wetting to some of the articles upstairs. The house is occupied by James Rowley.
Within an hour another alarm was turned in, and this time there was a blaze on the roof of Louis Swanson's billiard hall, the second within two weeks. The fire was quickly put out.
Before the fire department had left the premises a blaze was discovered on the roof of the building formerly occupied by the Eagle Bar, which was quickly extinguished.
There was no damage worth mentioning in any of the cases. The first was probably caused by a defective chimney or sparks from the chimney falling on the moss covered roof. In the last two cases the cause was probably sparks from the mill across the street.

|of interest|| Sunday Closing |
Shall the stores be open in Marysville on Sundays? We believe that this question was definitely decided some time past, and the merchants then agreed to close their places of business on that day. Everybody ought to have a day in the week all to himself, the storekeeper with the rest.
A little observation will convince any one that goods are being sold Sundays. This is a matter in which all ought to act together. It is not fair to expect anybody to close up that day if some are selling goods and perhaps thus drawing customers from some other merchants.
We are confident that the people of this community wish to have Sunday observed by the storekeepers. Groceries won't spoil so quickly but what they can be purchased on Saturday. Why not ask your merchant about this thing and ask him to cooperate with the rest in bringing all into line for the observance of Sunday.
|school|| Truant Officer to the Parents |
To the parents of the school children of Marysville and whomsoever it may concern: Your humble servant would say in regard to the duties as truant officer that it often becomes necessary to inform one of his or her duty. Having visited a good many homes in the past few months, and having heard all manner of excuses in regard to sending the child to school, would say that it is very well as far as it goes: but what I wish to impress on your minds is, that it is not necessary to inform me what I should do, what the school should do, what the directors should do, what the Town Council should do, and in fact, what the town in general should do. What I wish in performing my duty is to receive the same courtesy from the parent as I have endeavored to give. Your Humble Servant. S. P. Mapes.
