HINGLING CIRCUS COMING The big event for which the youngsters and grownups have~ been impatiently waiting is draw- ing near, for on Wednesday, Aug- ust 22, Ringling Brother~ circus is to exhibl,t afternoon and even- ing in Everett. Expectancy never ran so high be,'ore and it is likely that this district will send a large delegation to feed the elephants. Unusal interest centers around the gigantic spectacle, "Cinder- ella," with which the famous showmen are this season opening their wonderful main tent pro- gram. "Cinderella" is probably the best loved of all. fairy tales and to see it produced with more than 1,000 persons, hundreds of dancing girls and glorious pa- _ geants, indeed gives promise of making "childhood's golden dreams come true." In the same great tent, ~ill come the marvel- ouscircus numbers in which 400 men and 'women performers, Scores of trained animals and a galaxy of special features are in- troduced. The majority of the acts are entirely new to America, the the Ringling Bros; having secured the pick of all European perform- era who have been obliged to seek emgagements in this country. The all-new street ~)arade will take place show day morning. \ .FRANK WAGNER DEAD /! Frank Wagner died at his home in this cityon the morning of the 10th, after an illness of over a year, from a cancerous trouble which affected the face and throat for many months before he passed away, causing him intense suf- fering, which he bore with won- derful patience. The deceased was born in Menominee, Wis., in 1859 and united in marriage to Amy P. McKagan on July 4, 1896. Three children were born to this union--Margaret, Darrold and Catherine, who with their mother mourn his loss. In June, 1903, Mr. Wagner left .the home of his young manhood and, with his family, came to Washington, and located at once in Monroe, where he had resided ever since. He was a devoted husband and a kind, generous father withal industrious and painstaking, and enjoyed the es- teem and friendship of all who knew him. He was a consistent member of the I. O. O. F. 10age, joining the order in his Wiscon- sin home over a quarter of a cen- tury ago. He was a member of the M. W. A. and Yeomen lodges for a number of years. The funeral services took place Sunday afternoon from the M. E. church. Rev. P. H. Raymond preached the funeral sermon. His remains were laid to rest in the I. 0. O. F. cemetery east oi town. Gard of Thanks- To the many friends who so kindly extended their sympathy and assistance through the ill- ness and death of our husband and father, for the beautiful floral pieces, and in an especial manner we wish tv thank the members of the I. O. O. F. lodge, Brothers Raymond, Leahy, G. Colvin, William Baldwin, Mes- dames L. P. Orr, A. Nye and S. M. Dainard. MRS.. AMY WAGNER. MARGARET WAGNER. DARROLD WAGNER. CATHERINE WAGNER. { ELMER M. KAGAN. THOMAS MORGAN HURT Thomas Morgan, of the firm of Bancroft & Morgan, road con- tractors of the Monroe-Duvall paving job, met with a very ser- ious mishap Sunday morning. While crossing the trestle be- tween the Skykomish river bridge and the bridge at the south end of the trestle, his car swerved suddenly into the guard rail and broke through, plunging to the ground ten feet below. It is somewhat of a miracle he was not killed; he escaped with two broken ribs, "a broken bone~over the right eye and, strange to say, the Ford he was driving was but slightly injured. He was picked up by Mort Bentley and brought to the hospital, and the car, which turned turtle, was also in condi- tion to be brought to town under its own power. LAZINESS ANO EXTRAVAGANCE This week we received an arti- cle from a governmental depart- ment showing the extravagance of the American people in many respects, an article too lengthly for publication in this paper. The article showed, according to our way of thihking, that people have grown not only ex- travagant but lazy. Stress was laid upon the expense the ordi- nary household bears for de- livery accomodations. The ordi- nary housewife today" seldom carries home her purchases, no matter how small they may be-- leaves them for the delivery man to look after. It is really surpris- ing what free delivery of mer- chandise, groceries, meats, etc:, are costing the people--and all because the average person is too lazy (as we see it) to carry home his purchases.--Inland Empire News.
