Marshal Powers picked up a pair of runaway boys Wednesday who had been out with a stolen Ford car for a week. The boys, each about fifteen years old, one wearing knee pants, lived in Mount Vernon. Their names were Harry Keike and Arthur Macearhan. They came to Marysville Tuesday and stayed over night at the Marysville Hotel, leaving for Everett next morning without paying their bill. Later in the morning they came back and Marshal Powers picked them up and held them until a depute sheriff came from Mount Vernon to take them home. They told different stories as to where they had been. The car belonged to a farmer near Mount Vernon named Taylor. The boys had been much of the time in Bellingham, and evidently passed through Mount Vernon of the way ere. Their whereabouts were disclosed when a chum whom they endeavored to induce to accompany them from Mount Vernon Tuesday told about it.

birth Rathvon, granddaughter "Local and Personal: Mr. H. A. Rathvon went to Seattle Sunday to see the new baby at his son Haldy's. He returned Monday with Mrs Rathvon who had been there for a week. They report the new grand-daughter as fat and 'sassy'
On Tuesday of last week Marshal P. A. Powers placed under arrest Steve Saunders and cited him to appear before Police Magistrate Karl R. Gilmer, the charge being crossing the cement sidewalk on Third street onto his own property with his automobile. The case was brought to trial Saturday morning and continued till 1 p.m., when after a short session a fine of $5.00 and costs was assessed against Saunders, who acted as his own lawyer. He at once appealed the case. Mr. Saunders plea was that the alley entrance on Beach street was so difficult to negotiate and hard on tires on account of the heavy surfacing of loose gravel that he was practically obliged to use Third street; that the crossing suffered no injury, and that a dozen or twenty others were using similar crossings without half the necessity. It seems that the council at a recent meeting decided on enforcing the ordinance and this is brought on as a sort of test case. The validity of the ordinance together with the merits of the case may be tried later before the judge of the Superior court at Everett.
death Clough, Margaret Local and Personal: Mrs. F. H. Plont was called to Bellingham Sunday on account of the death of her little granddaughter, Margaret Clough, three years old. Mrs. Plont left Monday on the "Owl", returning Tuesday

During a business trip to Anacortes the Globe editor was privileged to visit the new shipyards now being established on Guemes Island, on the opposite shore of Guemes channel. This is one of the most ideal sites for a shipbuilding plant possible to find on the Puget Sound, and that means anywhere in the world. The land slopes properly for hundreds of yards along the shore, and the water attains good depth at once so that launching presents no difficulties.
Large permanent buildings with great steam engines and motors and all sorts of heavy steel and wood working machinery are being installed. Platforms and tracks are now being laid on which immense traveling cranes will run to shift timbers and materials into place on the hulls of the ships under construction
Already four keels have been laid and part of a fifth, with preparations for the sixth. These keels are 281 feet and 6 inches long. The stern posts are the most interesting sight, being 30x36 inches and 32 feet long, cut from perfectly clear and sound fir logs. A hole about six inches in diameter is being bored through each one with a hand auger for the insertion of the propeller shaft.
Six wooden ships are to be built as soon as possible, to be followed by others as fast as these are launched. The hulls will be finished in Anacortes and they will be towed to Olympia where machinery will be installed.
As a result of this shipbuilding industry added to lumber and fishing business of Anacortes, the city seems to be starting on a career of exceptional prosperity. The small run of sockeye salmon this season was disappointing, but the people seem already to have forgotten and the business men have a distinct feeling of optimism which is reflected in their bearing, and in the fact that empty storerooms are becoming scarce and everybody is hustling and no loafers in sight.
The following, a little late, but nevertheless of interest to many Marysville people was sent us by interested friends of the happy couple. It was published in the Mount Vernon Herald of the 11th last
The marriage of Miss Ruth S. Boughter and Louis M. Matson, both of Mt. Vernon was solemnized in Seattle Monday, October 8th, by the Rev. M. A. Matthews of the First Presbyterian church. Friends of the couple had anticipated the forthcoming nuptials, but even at that, the couple quietly stole away to Seattle where the knot was tied. Mrs. Matson is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James G. Boughter. She has been connected with the local telephone office for the past eight years. Mr. Matson is well and favorably known here, having been connected with the local electric company for some time. He came here from his home in Marysville. The newly weds are spending a few weeks in Seattle on their honeymoon. They will return to Mt. Vernon and be at home, temporarily, with Mr. and Mrs. Boughter on Lawrence street, after Nov. 4th.
Mr. Matson will be remembered as former owner of the Grand theatre of this city, having made his home here for the past twelve years. He is now located at Mr. Vernon, being the Skagit county representative for the Willard Storage Battery Co.
