The Fair store, which was opened up in Marysville in, October 1916, by S. F. Moulton and wife, will be closed on Saturday of this week, and the stock packed up preparatory to being moved to Tacoma. Mr. Moulton has for the past four or five months been employed in the management of a stock of stationery, books, etc., for Walter Berg in Everett, and now Mr. Berg, who also has a store in Tacoma, is going into the commissary department of the army, and plans to move his Everett store to Tacoma, consolidating the stores in charge of Mr. Moulton. Therefore Mr. Moulton thinks it advisable to find a location for his variety stock in Tacoma, where he can look after it while managing the Berg stock, and later give it his entire attention. The Fair store under the Moultons' management proved a successful venture but larger fields tempted Mr. Moulton, and Marysville loses the family and the store with regret.

An alarm of fire was sounded Tuesday forenoon, but the fire was extinguished before harm was done. It was at the home of Carll Bartlett, where the stovepipe had fallen away from the opening and started to burn the partition. The hose cart arrived on the scene and soon the fire was under control. It chanced that Carll was one of the fire laddies who started with the cart and didn't know it was his own house until well on the way. It didn't take long to make the run after that. It is said that a few minutes delay would have seen the house enveloped inflames as once in the partition it would have spread rapidly.
disaster flood Mansfield Local and Personal: The Mansfield family had a rather trying experience Sunday night in attempting to return home from a trip to Seattle in their car. They found the water too deep on the Ebey Island road near Cavalero's corners, when they tried to cross at about 5:30 in the afternoon, and were later pulled out by a car from Everett, where they waited till the Owl train to get home. The Owl was over two hours late, so they arrived home at about 4 a.m. Monday. But they were not alone in their misery. More than fifty cars were lined up along the flood area, all with dead engines. Two Everett drivers pulled them out, assessing each the sum of $2.50. Talk about profiteering.
lumber iww L.L.L.L. NEW ORDER, REPLACES I.W.W.
The Loyal Legion of Loggers is a new organization that bids fair to solve the labor situation in the lumber camps. In taking the pledge of this organization the men become a part of Uncle Sam's great organization being built up for the successful prosecution of the war. In registering a man but few questions are asked, these including his name, age, place of birth and facts as to his family. A logger signing the pledge receives a membership card and a badge, the conspicuous feature of which are the letters "L.L.L.L." and an airplane in flight. The pledge has nothing to do with place of employment, wages, or hours, the signer agreeing, in substance, to use his best efforts in helping to produce needed forest products during the war.
Lieut. Dean, who has been commissioned by Col. Brice P. Disque, to further the organization of the Loyal Legion of Loggers and Lumbermen in Northwest Washington, last week signed up the men at the Florence camp, Silvana, and at the new camp of the same company being erected at Arlington. He reports good success, a very large percentage of the men taking the simple pledge of the organization.
The strike of the I.W.W.'s last week at the Ebey camps had seemingly a fortunate outcome, for the forty men who went out as the result of the discharge of two men who had been sent there from Seattle as organizers are now out of the way, and the new L.L.L.L. has practically taken their place. Since the departure of the I.W.W.'s the remaining members of the crew have shown their colors as backers of Uncle Sam by signing up to the Loyal Legion of Loggers. Capt. Hartman visited the camp and met with fine success in securing signatures to the Legion pledge. At Camp No. 2 every man signed, as did practically all other men in the employ of the company. The net result of the walkout appears to be that while the camp is temporarily short handed it is enjoying the novelty of industrial peace and is imbued with a refreshing spirt of co-operation with the government in this time of emergency.
Inasmuch as no question of wages or good treatment was involved, the incident amounted to a show down. The men who felt that this is no time for industrial slackerism remained, the others left. The loyal men remaining at their post are to be congratulated. Such men are just as valuable to the country as the soldiers at the front or the sailors on the high seas.
