Marysville has at last met with its first loss on the battlefields of France in the death of Charles M. Black of Sunnyside, who died of wounds on Aug. 30th, the news of which was received only last Monday by his parents and brothers and sisters here and in Everett.
He was 22 years old on April 7 and had been in the service almost a year. His frequent letters home and to friends told of active service in the trenches. He suffered many hardships cheerfully and it was at the end of a period of 20 days in the trenches that he was taken out in a condition from which he was unable to recover. He had stayed by a comrade who had been shot at his side when he was himself severely wounded and had been awarded several medals for his bravery. He is survived by his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Black of Sunnyside, five brothers, and three sisters. Berry black of the firm of Black and King, of Everett, has entered the service recently, and is now at Camp Fremont, California
Marysville like Seattle and Camp Lewis, must be "in style all the while.: Wednesday morning, the health officer, Dr. C. E. Mumn, decided that schools and public meetings should close, and Mayor Mansfield ordered it done as a precaution against the spread of the new and fashionable Spanish influenza. While there were few cases here, the fact that the disease has appeared is sufficient reason for taking this action with the hope that there may be no serious outbreak, and that it may pass over in a short time. Many activities have been affected the school along with the school fair which was all set for Thursday and Friday of this week, which will be carried out just as soon as the quarantine is lifted. Supt. McMacken states that when the schools are ready to resume the bell will be run at 5 p.m. the evening before.
The moving picture house has had to cancel all engagements until further notice, and the plans for a Columbus Day celebration for Saturday evening, Oct. 12 also disappears from the list of events.
