As we go to press, we have just heard one of the saddest things that has occurred here in years. Mr. Chas. Beaman, who had been up to Blaine yesterday, in getting off the train - the 8 o'clock Flyer - last night, slipped and was caught under the wheels of the moving train. Both limbs were taken off just below the knees and there is very little hopes of his recovery. He lay beside the track two hours before he was finally found. The doctor was sent for and after making him as comfortable as possible he was hurried to the General Hospital in Everett. This morning, he is resting as easily as can be expected.

Miss Minnie Margaret Smith passed away last Friday at 2:30 pm at the home of her parents. Mr. and Mrs. Peter Smith on Cedar Street at the age of at the age of 15 (?) years 11 months. The death of this very estimable young girl resulted from a two months illness of Diabetes, that dread disease so rarely curable, especially in one so young, and was peculiarly sad. Gifted with so many rare qualities with a loving disposition, a very bright, if not a brilliant future was predicted for her, had not our Heavenly Father seen fit to call her to his own. for the past year and a half she has been a faithful and trusted employee of the Globe and was ever willing to do her share of the work in a neat, business like manner. The funeral occurred on Monday at the Catholic church, a Requiem High Mass being sung by Rev. Father Saidon, of Everett. The burial, at the Catholic cemetery, was under the direction of Undertaker Schaefer. The large attendance of relatives and friends attested to the high esteem in which she was held by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Besides her parents, she leaves of brothers, Joseph, George, Carl, Harold, and Theodore; and of sisters: Gertrude and Ellen to mourn her loss. May she rest in peace.

Burglars Enter Marysville Bank
Some time Wednesday night or Thursday morning, burglars entered the Marysville State Bank, by prying off the lock of the back door, and blew a hole with nitro glycerine through the brick wall of the vault right into the safety deposit boxes. The hole was large enough for a medium size man to crawl through and the burglars either by accident or by keen sense of judgment of distance, managed to blow a hole right through one of the deposit boxes, which was about 18 inches square. It was rather a neat job; and believed to be the work of an artist in this line. It is not known just what was taken, but among other things were a diamond ring, some valuable silverware and a number of gold nuggets. There were over $600 worth of stamps in one box, and bonds and warants inanother, yet none of these were disturbed. The thieves evidently did not care to take any more chances than were necessary. Sheriff McRae, Deputy Sheriff McDonald, and Marshal Powers are all at work on the case, but as yet no clew (sic) has been found.
