S. T. Smith Has Narrow Escape
While coming home from the fire Tuesday morning, S. T. Smith had the misfortune to fall through a hole in the high platform at the Big Mill, hurting his arm and cutting his face quite badly. It was very dark at that time and he walked right into the hole falling down into an elevator lined with jagged pieces of sheet iron. To look at the place in the day time, one would think it impossible to fall into such a place without being seriously injured.
born Oliver, baby daughter
Local and Personal - Born to Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Oliver, of Tacoma, about two weeks ago, a daughter. It is "Grandpa" Munn now.
fire
Fire Breaks Out At the Big Mill
Tuesday morning at about four o'clock, the Big Mill was found to be on fire and the alarm was quickly spread by the ringing of the fire bell and blowing of the mill whistles. In a short time a large crowd had gathered and the pump at the Mutual Mill was soon throwing water on the flames. The fact that there was no breeze stirring at the time, and the rapid work of the Mutual men is all that saved the big plant from destruction. The damage was very slight, not being over $200. The fire started under the mill at the end next to the river and it seems a mystery that how it started. The night being so still it is improbable that sparks from the other mills could have set it. It is thought that a Knight of the Brakebeam had been making that spot his headquarters for the night and carelessly left a match burning. The Marysville Manufacturing Co., owners of the mill, have had bad luck of late. Five shingle machines were burned in a car at the Sumner Iron Works in Everett. They were loaded and ready to be shipped the next day. As the mill has been planned expressly for this make of machine, it will probably be some time before they will be able to start.

death - drowning Leen, Michael
Insane Patient Drowns in Lake
The body of Michael Leen, inmate of Fort Stellacoom Insane hospital, was discovered in a small lagoon near the asylum, April 15th. Leen had been missing since Sunday. Only the back protruded above the surface of the water, and the position of the body indicated that Leen had waded out into the lake to a depth of about two feet, squatted down until his head was submerged, and drowned himself.. The man was admitted last month from Snohomish county suffering from insane delusions. His condition was not considered serious and he was allowed the freedom of the grounds. When he was missed Sunday, according to Dr. A. P. Calhoun, Superintendent, it was believed after a search was made that Leen had escaped and started home.
trip Matts, Gold and Leslie
Local and Personal - After bidding their hosts of friends "Good Bye". Golda and Leslie Matts departed Wednesday on the 9:30 am train for Wisconsin. At Seattle they took passage on the celebrated "Columbian" over the Milwaukee. They go by way of Portage WI, where they stay over night, taking the train next morning for Madison where they change for a half hour's run on the C &N-W to Verona where their uncle John lives. Their uncle is a prosperous farmer and Leslie expects to become an expert tiller of the soil, and when he returns to the Sound again, will be able to analyze the sod and tell the formers in this section "how to grow three blades of grass where one grew before." He took his baseball and mitt with him for he intends to give those "badgers" a few lessons in the art of fine baseball playing. Golda will be there in time to attend the wedding of a near relative, will visit the celebrated Dells of Wisconsin, the capital city of four lakes, and big city of Chicago and other places of interest, and return in the Fall. Mr. Matts went with the children as far as Seattle and hints that when parting time came the "kid" got "cold feet" and wanted to come back with his father to Marysville. All that Mr. Matts has left now is "ol' Tom," that scarred veteran of many hard fought battles. They will endeavor to hold things down at least until Golda returns.
