crime Attempt Made to Rob Meat Market
An attempt was made to rob Hawley's City Market last (Friday) evening. The robbers cut a hole with a knife through the back door and turned the key. They they took the small safe out the back door, presumably to dynamite the same. Nightwatchman Chas. Thompkins was passing along on his beat and heard a noise back of the butcher shop, and threw the rays of his electric lanterns back in that direction. This frightened the robbers and they fled. Mr. Hawley says that his cash register was rifled but that there was very little money to be found in it.

There are forty-four in the eighth grade, forty-three in third, and all the other rooms but one have between thirty-seven and forty.

city Matts Breaks In Again
Two or three weeks nice, our Health Officer had another article in the Glove concerning our drinking water. This time he did not use it was "rotten", though he used language that no one could mistake as to its meaning. It is not the writer's purpose to challenge the authority of so eminent a physician as Dr. Tooker, for he evidently knows what he is talking about. I am glad the doctor had the courage - for it takes courage, after calling down he received in the hands of the Rev. Dr. Bushell - to again bring it to the attention of our good people, for we are certainly standing on the brink of a crater that may vomit forth death any minute, and there's no telling when an epidemic of typhoid may break out and blot us from the map. I can't understand, why people will continually flirt with death and take such chances and make no provision for their loved ones in this world, not themselves in the next.
The doctor did not tell us whether HE drank any of our water or not. Perhaps he don't; at least, I never saw him. Anyway, he says: "Marysville has a poor water supply, and we are now warned of it."
While the doctor seems intensely interested int he water question, why don't he wield his facile pen in other directions; which to the writer seems vastly more important than the question of good drinking water. Why don't he address himself to the Mayor and Town Council, whose business it is to see that our streets, especially our sidewalks be kept clean. Doctor, don't you know that the tuberculosis spawn daily vomited upon our walks, is more of a menace to the public health, than is our water supply? A whole lot of 'em don't believe all you say about our water; but they might agree with you on the other question. You signed yourself "Health Officer." Isn't this a part of your business? Hav'nt (sic) you seen great gobs of this spawn lying on our side-walks? Why, I never go to or from my office, that I am not obliged to wade around this filth.
Walking down Cedar Street one day between 5th and 4th streets, I twisted around half dozen such heaps and wasn't sure whether I'd come out on 4th or back again on 5th. No wonder the ladies wear "high-heeled shoes"; they've got to to get through.
The brute that will relieve himself of such filth upon the sidewalk, instead of upon the street, is a genuine 18 karat hog; whether he's "His Honor" the Mayor, the Health Officer, or a Town Councilman or just and ordinary scrub like the rest of us of the "common heard.: The man (?) who will drop upon the walk, those wads of filth which "he rolls as a sweet marsel under is tongue", is a close second to the "18 karat hog." Not a day that the writer doesn't kick off into the street more disgusting ciragette ends and cigar stubs than would fill the doctor's hat. A man (?) who is determined to be so filthy, can just as well step to the curb and relieve himself as to drop it upon the walk. If I were a member of the "Town Council, there'd be "Something doin" along that line
There's no reason why Marysville should not have clean walks
Now that some of the good ladies of Marysville have organized a "Rose and Dahlia Society" the purpose of which is to ornament and beautify the home, cultivate a spirit and disposition of cleanliness and incidentally "clean out that plaza.: :oh you plaza," could you but talk.
We hope the ladies will take up this matter of clean streets. Make Marysville a decent and safe place for decent and clean people to live. Strangers clean in their habits, notice these things.
crime TRIES TO PASS BAD CHECK
Thursday morning, a young man aged about twenty-one or two years presented a check to Cashier Colvin at the Marysville State Bank. The check was signed in what proved to be a good imitation of Claude Wright's handwriting and was for $62.00. Mr. Colvin, not knowing the young man, became suspicious and called Claude over the phone. In the meantime the young man said that in as much as he had known F. G. Merrick for a number of years, he would get him to endorse the check. Shortly after he came back to the bank with a perfect imitation of Mr. Merrick's peculiar signature. Cashier Colvin says that this nearly "got him" but Claude Wright did not remember of having written a check for the amont and he was still suspicious. He asked the young man to go with him to Merrick's office to be identified, but the fellow said that Merrick had just gone to the depot to take a train for Everett. Mr. Colvin called the depot to see if Mr. Merrick was there, and while he was in conversation with the station the young man sauntered to the door and "beat it" up the track. Marshal Pat Powers was called and caught him near Father Cord's place north of town. Upon searching him the Marshal found Claude Wright's watch, opera glasses and purse. He had entered Claude's house and stolen the articles while Claude was at the school building. At his preliminary hearing he waived examination and Judge Merrick committed him to jail to await trail at the Superior Court. Of all the brazen hardened. "Devil may care" criminals, this young man, who gave his name as Young, Edmond Romine, etc., was certainly the limit
