death Rhoades, Isiah
Isiah Rhoades, an old resident of this vicinity, died at the Everett Hospital on Sunday and was buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in that city on Tuesday. Mr. Rhoades leaves two sons and one daughter ..... and another daughter having preceded him to the grave. The daughter, who lives in Vancouver B. C. attended the funeral, also the sons, one of who lives in Seattle and the other who works at the Ideal mill. Mr. Rhoades was very old and had been in feeble health for sometime.
Phil Triber informs us that most of the men are ready to go to work again at Rucker's Camp, and many of them are at a loss to give a reason for quitting, as this camp has always paid higher wages than any other camp in the country, in fact for certain work they have paid 25 cents per day more than the I.W.W. scale calls for. He expects to have a fall crew by the first of next week. Pat Powers, one of the crew, says that they never had an fault to find with ...or board , but their ... was the cramped quarters in which they were compelled to sleep. They also want men hired through the union, and no special preferences. They also want some changes in the sick and accident business. We would suggest that the men put their grievances before the owners of camps, instead of allowing the I.W.W. delegates to call them out. We believe more results would obtain.
illness Daily, M. N.

Alexander Spithill: Snohomish County's Oldest Citizen
The above is a very good likeness of Mr. Spithill. He was born in Greenock, Scotland, at the mouth of the river Clyde, 15 miles from Glascow, in 1824, and left there as a sailor, when a mere boy, going to Australia, where he spent several years. He left Australia in 1848, and came to California, arriving in 1849, when the gold fever was at its highest. In 1856 he landed at Port Orchard, this state and has made the Sound country his home ever since. At that time there were only about a dozen houses where the great city of Seattle now stands. Mr. Spithill went to work in a spar camp at Utsaladdy on 9 Nov 1856. At that time Snohomish was a part of Island County, but in 1860 was made a separate county. At this time the only white settlers between Salmon Bay and Bellingham were Dr. Cherry, John Gould, Thos. Dickson, Goutrie, and others who owned a Mill at Tulalip Bay at the same site of the present mill. Mr. Spithill is well acquainted with all the old timers like Gardiner Goodrich, D. O. Pearson, W. B. Moore, Jack Irvine and others who first settled in Stillaguamish Valley. He lived in Mukilteo and other places on the Sound and came to Marysville 21 years ago and has lived here ever since. He has always been an active and industrious man and has accumulated considerable property, being engaged at the present time in clearing land for a dairy farm. The Spithill home on the corner of Beach and Eighth is one of the best in town, and Mr. Spithill is always at home to his friends. He is a man of considerable education and his stories of the early days on the Sound are very interesting. In spite of his declining years, he enjoys the best of health and can walk a mile in twenty minutes without difficulty. His present wife is the mother of nine children a number of whom are dead.

death - drowning Nightlinger, Loyd
Drowned In Quil Ceda.
Last Wednesday one of the saddest tragedies in the history of our fair city was enacted at Quil Ceda. The children of the lower grades were given a half holiday, the day being ... after the sweltering heat of the past week, and the little boys although being cautioned by the teachers, resolved to have a swim in the creek. Now who of us can blame them, as we will wager that there is not one of us who have not done the same thing time and again. The boys, a few of them who could swim, and a number who were "just learning" were having a fine time, when Loyd Nightlinger got into the deep water and although the other little fellows tried to help him, he sank for the last time. Little Harley Schumacher had hold of him at one time, but being so much smaller, he could not keep him up and bother were in danger of drowning. He finally got loose and got to shore, while poor Loyd, who was exhausted from taking water into his lungs, sank and did not come up again. The little fellows ran for help and after dragging for three hours or more, the body was finally located a few feet from where it sank. Loyd was an unusually bright boy of 13 years and was popular with the pupils and teachers alike, and his tragic death cast a dark shadow over the holiday so dear to the heart of every child. He was the youngest of five sons of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Nighlinger. The bereaved parents and brothers have the sympathy of the whole countryside. The funeral was held today Friday, at 2:00 at the family residence near the cemetery. Rev. Paul Ashby preached the sermon.
