death McRae, Donald Obituary: Donald McRae, sr., died at the Soldiers' Home at Port Orchard early Sunday morning at the age of 80 years.

Interment will be in Odd Fellows Cemetery
While the floods have not touched Marysville because it is above the high water line, we are seriously cut off from communication with the outside world, the worst feature being that no mail has been dispatched or received from Saturday night until today, eastern mails being cut off at Monroe and Index by bridges going out. The Coast line was still open until Saturday night, when the short section of bridge across Union slough just north of the main span of the Great Northern over the Snohomish river north of Everett became shaky, the swift current loosening the piles till the track bent two or three feet out of line, and the whole structure seemed likely to go.
Construction crews were at work by Monday, but as new piles had to be driven and the water has not gone down much the work has been slow.
There were slides along Chuckanut Mountain, south of Bellingham, which will cause still greater delays, so that through trains on the Coast line cannot be expected for some time.
The only communication with Everett has been by walking the G.N. railroad bridge to Delta, or by boat from Cavalero's corner to the Everett Avenue bridge. The Everett papers have been brought over and met by Petersen's stage at that point, also some passengers have braved the waters and made the trip over Cavalero's cabbage patches.
Speaking of the cause of the flood, the persistent warm rains and winds beginning with the day after Christmas are responsible, and there is probably less snow on the mountains now than at this time in many years. What snow has fallen in November and December has gone off and probably much more with it, so that unless an unusual amount of snow comes later the passes will be open very early next spring.
While our temperature has been from 55 to 60 degrees every day for over a week, the middle west and east has had from 15 to 40 degrees below zero, with coal short in various places. Between floods and blizzards, we believe the former is preferable.
marriage Neuhse, Dorothy and Martin, Neil Stimson's Crossing: Miss Dorothy Neuhse of Seattle and Mr. Neil Martin of Everett were married in Seattle Monday evening. Neil is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Martin of Everett, who lived many years in this vicinity. They have the best wishes of their many friends here.

Snellstrom have just received word of the marriage of their son Orrin to Miss Minnie Carlisle of Walton, Oregon, on Dec. 8th. The ceremony was performed at the home of the bride's parents. They will make their home at Walton, Oregon

(cont.) Later -- A passenger and mail train was run yesterday (Thursday) from Everett: to the damaged section of the bridge, but the tracks began to settle, and the crew was obliged to give up and return to the city. Repair work was resumed and another attempt will be made to cross today
Government managed railroads are having their first trial, and the result is that he have no mail for six days. Under the railroad's own management, previous to the government's taking them over three weeks ago, the railroad company was obliged under contract to deliver mail within 24 hours under severe penalties. And they found a way. Now it's up to the government and the government seems a long way off
Beginning with the first train it is the plan to send a mail train through to Mount Vernon every day at 1 p.m. return at 5:56 p.m. until the road is opened to Bellingham, when through service can be resumed.
