Patronize Our Advertisers Serious Fracas on lhe Public Streel Robert Crossman is under bonds in the sum of $500 to ap pear in court to answer to the charge of assault with a deadly weapon on account of taking a cleaver as a weapon to a man whom he claims was following him about looking for trouble last Friday morning. Crossman claims that the mn, Jack Pryor, who had been working as black- smith's assistant out at High Rock, accosted trim on Lewis street and struck him and then followed him around the corner. When in front of the Elweli mar- ket Crossmau rushed in and picked up a cleaver and rushing out again struck Pryor over the head with it cutting a severe gash from which he bled pro- fusely but not injuring him so severely as to prevent his being about on the streets afterwards. L. M. Sanders saw the mixup on Lewis street. The trouble was witnessed by a number of people in the vicin- ity at the time and caused grea excitemev.t. I was a sequel to the arrest of Crossman earlier in the morning and his being fined $25 and costs for beating a log- ger. named Wm. O'Donnell, be cause he found him at the Wash ington hotel with his (Cross- man's) pipe in his pocket. It seems teat Pryor apparently took up the fight in O'DonnelFs behalf. Crossman had a bearing before Justice Talhnan in the afternoon and entered a plea of not guilt. On account of the illneas of Mr. Tallman the case may go straight to the Superior court. , t A Good Corner on Main Street Monroe m the 1 r Business Section "  , $10,000 j Quite a sum of money, isn't it?--and yet there are several corners that couId not be toucheff for [ this figure. .. There are some that you could not buy for double this amount. A few years ago these same lots were bought for a few dollars each; the price was so small and the terms so easy that almost any boy or girl could pay for one of them out of their savings. TODAY One of these pieces of property would sell for enough to buy you an automobile and still leave you money sufficient to keep you in comfort for the balance of your life. Just think! The original investment was but a few dollars. LISTEN--There is a time to Buy and there is a time to Sell The time to buy is when you can buy for a few dollars The time to sell is when you can sell for many dollars. There is a brand new town just 12 miles up the Snoqualmie Valley. we came very near letting it slip. ttowever, we are going to have an official christening pretty soon and you can then see the name at the head of thin space. | Here is a ch',nce to buy property at "the buying time"---it costs but a few dollars to come in on ?'' m the ground floor Don't you think you ought to keep this in mind? This is a smart lively little'place, this very minute we know it is going to jump ahead rapidly--if you look it Over you will low it yourself. LISTEN! In a few years you will hear the ever familiar, "I could have. traded the old,._bay t mare for that double corner where the big hotel stands," Let us tell you something of this sprightly young town.

Wallon Wins Game for Snohomish Snohomish won a game fi'om the locals Sunday that they had no business getting away wilh and which would -have resulted entirely differently hed Farmer been m as good form as he was in the two precious games. :No pitcher can keep up a steady gait when every game played depends on his work and their is no reason for the Monroe fans to roast George. In stead they ought to encourage h:m and stick by him steadily tbrou,h every game. The game rag rgally won and lost fr(,m the pitcher's box as the results show. Monroe go 7 hi's to Snohomish 9. Farmer fanned 3 and passed 5 while:Walton fan- ned 13 and passed' none. ":NUff said The boys could't find Walton, an old time Snohomish pitcher, who was in splendid shape, so good that Boggens gould not hold him in. Th3 only real star play and biggest excitment occurred in he ninth, when Walton hit to Hunter at deep center. Johnnie successfully cornering the fly and making a splendid throw home, cutting off Northrup at the plate. When Mmroe wen in obatSnohomish had a lead of 6 runs which xas cut down by two runs after Farmer and Peat" sall went out. CaJ:p started things by a hit to right, stealing= second and getting home on a hit by Allenand a fumble. Pow nail hit safe to center scoring Allen, but. was qumkly caughl trying to Steal a base. For th, first time in he game the fans look a hand and did some real rooting that would have won the game at an earher stage. We need rooters as well as ball play ers and it's time the fans go busy and organized a little. The game started off with a rush in the first inning w!:mu Snohomi: h scored two. when Farmer passed .the fi!ist man up, Whi'ing, who walk, ed i6bn SU] man's two-bagger.

Pownall followed with a clean twobagger which brought young Ptarsall in. That was all the scoring Monroe did till the last inning but Snohomish ran m sex more runs.
