disease influenza Much Sickness in City, But Many Improving Much Sickness in City, But Many Improving
The Globe has made no effort to record all the cases of influenza during the past few weeks, chiefly because we do not like to see too many "sick items" in the paper at the same time. However, there is little else to record these days, and this week's paper contains more than usual of this class of news. He are satisfied that conditions are much the same in other localities, and it will be noticed that many of the sick are recovering so there is yet time for the most of us to enjoy a merry Christmas which should be coming to us as a result of the ending of the great war.
disease influenza Local and Personal: The "flu" seems to be more general than ever, in Marysville as well as elsewhere. The school attendance is about 35 per cent short, there being about 120 students detained at home. It seems best to continue the schools and let those who can get the benefit.

On Saturday last, at about 1 p.m. there was a curious accident on the Pacific Highway which resulted in the complete destruction of a Dodge auto by fire. The car was coming from Seattle, with four occupants, and when coming down the grade to cross Allen creek just east of this city the sudden drop caused the driver to lose control of the steering gear and the car ran thru the railing on the north side. It instantly caught fire, and was entirely enveloped in flames in a few seconds. The occupants, three men and a women, got out without serious injury, and had to stand by and see the flames consume practically everything but the engine and steel framework. The car belonged to O. J. Piette of Seattle, and the party were apparently starting on a tour, as they had a camping outfit strapped on which was also destroyed
The car was afterwards brought in to the Marysville Auto Co.'s garage, and is certainly a sorry looking wreck.

The people of Marysville and vicinity were deeply shocked on hearing of the death from pneumonia of Harley J. McMacken, Superintendent of the Marysville Consolidated High School for the past four and one-half years. On Tuesday of last week Mr. McMacken came down with an attack of the influenza, and fearing it would be followed by pneumonia he arranged for a room at the Everett hospital and was taken there almost immediately. Having suffered before from pneumonia he felt that it would go hard with him and he told friends here that he had little confidence in being able to stand another attack of pneumonia. By the next day the dread disease attacked him and by Saturday, although everything possible was done, even to the transfusion of blood from two different persons, he became unconscious and passed away Sunday afternoon between 2 and 3 o'clock.
The remains were taken to Challacombe's Undertaking room in Everett, and funeral services were held there Tuesday afternoon at 2:30. Rev. Randall of the M. E. church officiating. The remains will be held there for a week or more until Mrs. McMacken can settle up her affairs here and accompany them to the old home in Michigan, where they will be buried at Mount Pleasant, Michigan, with the father and mother.
Harley J. McMacken was born in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, May 7, 1887. He graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School and the State Normal at that place and after teaching school for three years took a degree of B. A. at the Stat University at Ann Arbor.
He was married on Jan. 11, 1908 to Miss June Dyke, and came West in 1911, taking a class in Physics in the Everett High School. In 1913 he took charge of the Marysville Consolidated High school, and filled the position with credit until his last illness.
Besides his devoted wife he leaves three bright children, Lois aged 20 years. Mary Catherine, aged 8, and Harley, Jr., aged 4. He is survived by four brothers and one sister, Iva, Mark and Howard, of Mt. Pleasant, Mich., Joseph of Spokane, Wash., and Clifford, of Toledo, Ohio. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, and carried life insurance in a liberal amount.
The following appreciation of his services to the community and his sterling character has been written by Steve Saunders, president of the school board, whose close contact with the deceased enables him to speak with intimate knowledge:
"In the death of Superintendent McMacken, the Marysville schools have sustained, an irreparable loss; the whole community loses a tireless worker and booster, and many people throughout Snohomish County will miss the cherry, big-hearted "Prof" they knew and liked so well.
"Coming to Marysville when school affairs were in their formative stage, he quickly adapted himself to the work of building up a better and stronger school system. That he was highly successful is attested in may ways. He was especially capable in developing system in his school work, and from the standpoint of the school board he was prized because he never failed to carry through the work given him. Of his many activities such as the Lyceum Course: Red Cross work; boys and girls clubs; school fairs; school athletics, and other semi-educational work, only those comparatively close to him knew of the time and energy he cheerfully devoted thereto. He could always do a little More."
