accident child Jones, child Local and Personal: The two-year-old child of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Jones was seriously burned Saturday by falling into a tub of hot water. One arm and should was badly scalded. The father, who is employed in Seattle, came up, but returned Monday evening.
death Kemery, Sallie Ann Obituary: Mrs. Sallie Ann Kemery died at her home in Sunnyside Thursday, June 6, of bronchitis at the age of 73 years. She was born in the South, but came to this section of the country over twenty years ago, living for some years at Shoultes and the last ten years at Sunnyside. The funeral was held Sunday at 2 p.m., at the Marysville Undertaking parlors. Rev. J. W. Boynton of Tacoma, pastor of the Seventh Day Adventist church, officiating. Interment was held in the Odd Fellows Cemetery.
The town council met in special Monday evening for the purpose of placing on passage an ordinance to curb idleness and the holding of unlawful meetings, or distributing literature of a seditious nature, or any act in any way detrimental to the best interests of the government in its prosecution of the war.
The meeting was called to order by Mayor Mansfield, and there were present Councilmen Thompson and Stormo. Councilman Logan Smith having resigned. Mayor Mansfield appointed to his place. J. James. Aldermen Hilton and Lackey were absent.
A prepared ordinance as above described was given first reading by Town Clerk Santry and discussed. All agreed on the necessity of such an ordinance, feeling that as other towns are passing such ordinances we might, if we failed to have such an ordinance in force, become the hotbed for idles and for meetings of a disloyal character.
The ordinance will probably be passed at the first regular meeting in July.
The motorcycle contracted for a year ago and used by Town Marshal Powers with the idea of gathering in fines from speeders on the highway, has been sold for a sum somewhat less that the original contract price, and the city agrees to pay the difference to Fred Whistler of the Marysville Garage, who sold the city the machine and who has awaited patiently for payment. In this deal the town has been rather the loser, as no fines were collected. There seemed to be a hitch in the law. The wooden policeman was a source of revenue to the city, fines of upward to $100 having been paid in for cutting the corner short at too high a rate of speed.
marriage Smith, Logan C. and Gottschalk, Gladys Smith-Gottschalk
Logan C. Smith and Miss Gladys Gottschalk were married in Seattle Saturday at the home of Rev. Richard Bushell. Logan's brother Silas being present at the ceremony.

Smith, all members of the family being present except one daughter, Mrs. F. K. Berry, of Vancouver, B. C., who was detained on account of sickness in the family.

He has already taken possession
Petitions are in circulation asking the town council to make provisions for moving the town hall from its present location of Front street to the City Park. This has been talked of frequently, but so far nothing has been done. Now is a good time to act, as the erection of the flag pole and the concentration of business on State street, also the advantage of having our city building located on the Pacific Highway furnish the best of reasons for making the change. No objections should be made provided a way can be found to meet the expense.
