crime robbery Wade, Arthur F. 2000 Hatching Eggs Stolen from A. F. Wade
Arthur F. Wade, the chicken man two miles north of Marysville, was robbed of 170 dozen eggs ready for hatching some time Monday night. According to Wade, they must have been taken in an auto truck by some one who knew the premises.
Mr. Wade has made the following statement to the newspapers in the hope that the thieves might be apprehended:
"About 1:00 or 2:00 am. Tuesday morning we were awakened by the dog barking and in just a little we heard a truck start out in the road just below the house a bit. It made considerable noise for a little as if it was not starting right, and then, the growling stopped and we thought it had got to going right and had gone on. The Airedale kept on barking but we thought it was all because he had been someone working with his car. After quite a while the truck started up and this time went, apparently to the south. It made too much noise for anything but a truck.
" In fthe morning we found that our egg house had been robbed of several large baskets of eggs one case nearly full and two empty egg cases, in all about 170 dozen. It appeared that the smaller baskets had been emptied into the cases and several market baskets that held about 18 dozen and one willow basket that held about 35 dozen and one round basket made of oak strips were taken along as the case would not hold all. The market baskets are new looking while the willow basket was old and dirty and had seen lonts of use. The oak basket was old and weather worn but had not been used much.
"From the appearance of things the man or men knew just where to go. All the tracks that were made in the soft dirt so they could be seen plainly looked to be the same shape shoe and all measured between 11 and 11 a/2 inches long.
While the market value of the eggs are little over $60.00 it is a much greater loss to us as we were going to put them in the incubators Tuesday to fill chick orders for May 23d delivery. While it is considerable loss to us it will be a disappointment to a good many others who were expecting chicks. The eggs were all white shelled except about 4 dozen which were brown."
It has later been learned that on the same night D. G. Darling was also robbed of three cases of eggs. At about 1:00 a.m. Mr. Darling got up to look after incubator fires and heard an auto truck leaving the neighborhood. His appearance probably scared the thieves away, and no doubt went on the Wade place and made their big haul.
death Kerr, Lelia Frances Eleven-Year-Old Girl Crushed Under Wagon
Friday afternoon this community was shocked to hear of an auto accident which proved fatal to an eleven-year-old girl, Lelia Frances Kerr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Kerr, living north of town on a ranch. The accident occurred shortly before 4 o'clock. Two wagonloads of shingles hauled by a team of horses, the second attached and trailing behind the other, were going north this side of the Deu Pree place when they passed an auto. Frances, with another girl had been riding on the tongue of the trailer, but were walking in the middle of the road when the auto approached. Frances evidently to get out of the way of the machine, started to get on the tongue again, but the rack struck her head and knocked her down and the wagon passed over her body. The driver of the auto came back and picked her up and carried her into town, where Dr. Thompson examined her injuries and had her sent on to the Everett Hospital, where she lived till 8:20 o'clock, being conscious and not in much pain until she passed away.
Lelia Frances Kerr was born in Everett March 19, 1906, being 11 years, 1 month and 9 days old at the time of her death. Besides her father and mother she leaves six brothers and one sister.
The funeral occurred at the Baptist church at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Rev. R. L. Cunningham officiating. There were many beautiful floral offerings by schoolmates and others. The pall bearers were Evelyn and Hilda Hansen and Ione and Leone Asbery.

law A Warning to Bicycle Rider
The Town Council at its last meeting seriously considered passing an ordinance making severer penalties for riding bicycles on sidewalks and prohibiting certain walks which are now free to bicycles.
We are asked to state that arrests will be made under the present ordinance if certain boys are not careful. The speed limit allowed on walks is only five miles an hour -- a good, fast walk -- and anyone casing an accident while riding faster could be fined very heavily.
Failure to heed this warning will result in some arrests and the passing of a more stringent ordinance prohibiting certain walks to bicycle riders
of interest: Marysville Shows Many New Residences
More building has been going on in Marysville during the late winter months than for many years. Seven dwelling houses and one store building have been built or are in process of erection.
A resume of the building operations would include the 9-room house of Ed Murphy, as on Cedar and Fourth, which was fully described some weeks since in the Globe, and which was occupied about two weeks. ago.
Dr. H. D. Young's 5-room bungalow on 4th and Alder was finished by Emory Apple and the Dr. and wife moved in last week.
A 4 room house was recently been completed by James O'Neil on upper Fourth street.
A 4-room house at Beach and Ninth streets has just been completed under contract by John Geddes for J. Rice, and the family are moving in this week.
A 5-room house is under way for W. E. Adams, the restaurant man, on upper Cedar street, by Arthur C. Buttke.
One of the finest residences in town will be the 9-room house for Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Tompkins at Third and Ash, the work being in charge of John Geddes. It is rapidly nearing the completion, and will be ready for occupancy soon.
County Commissioner C. H. Quast has plans made and the lumber ordered for a fine new 9-room house to be built on his place just east of the Stimson tracks on Third street. This will be an added attraction on the east side.
The new store room for the Farmer's Supply store is the latest addition to our business houses.
Photographer M. E. Carpenter has just begun the erection of a small building for his gallery a few doors east of Mansfield's drug store on Third street.
Repairs and painting up might be noted here and there, and plans are on foot for more along the same line
It might be worthy of mention that the Globe office had a new front put in by C. W. Thompson the house mover, who found time this week between showers to paint it up in proper colors. A cloth awning will be added immediately in anticipation of a little sunlight.

crime ESCAPED FORGER FROM KING CO. JAIL PICKED UP HERE
Marshal Powers had the good fortune to pick up an escaped convict Wednesday who was wanted at Seattle to finish a jail term for first degree forgery. The man was George Benson, who had been convicted last fall of forgery and escaped from the King county jail on Dec. 14th.
Not long after his escape he came up this way and had some checks printed at the Globe office on the Alaska Junk company, and later on the Snohomish Logging company and the Port Blakely Mill company about a month apart. He passed checks on the logging company at Monroe, Snohomish and Everett and on the Port Blakely Mill company at North Yakima late in March. Shortly after this detectives learned of his trips to this locality and when the proprietor of the Globe office learned that the checks he had been printing were being used for forgery he agreed to call an officer in case the young forger appeared for another order of checks. About a month ago the office received a few sheets of bankers' safety paper from Seattle my mail from J. Thompson, which was the name he used, with instructions to hold till he called. Since then a watch has been kept, but days and weeks passed until it was thought the bird had flown. He was heard of in California only a few days ago, but disappeared, and Wednesday morning he came into the Globe office with a new lot of paper and copy for a check on a different company
The order was taken and he was to call at 5 o'clock for the checks. The marshal was called at once by phone and within half an hour the man was hand-cuffed and taken to the town jail. Within another two hours Deputy Sheriffs Scott Malone and Frank Brewer were here in an auto from Seattle and took the jail-breaker back to King county to serve out his sentence and doubtless answer to these later crimes.
Marshal Powers informs us that the fellow seemed relieved and stated that he had felt for some time that he would soon be caught again, and he was quite willing to go back and serve his sentence so he could get out as soon as possible and go to work. He evidently intends to plead guilty to his last crimes, in which he had taken pains to avoid the form which would convict him of first degree forgery. In one case he signed a different first name for the cashier, and in another the company name was worded wrong, so there was no such company.
There will be differences of opinion as to our action in turning the malefactor over to the authorities. Most printers figure that it is not their affair what a man wants to do with work he orders, any more than it is the business of a hardware dealer to inquire of one who purchases a firearm what he will use it for. However, when we learned that the checks he had printed had been used to defraud innocent persons, it certainly was our duty to do what we could to place the malefactor where he could not rob others in the same way.
