Herr WAGNER, managing editor of the Western Journal of Education, a prominent Coast Sider, did his first journalistic work on an old Mechanics Fair Daily.
Rev. Father A. ANDRIANO of Half Moon Bay was in San Francisco the early part of the week transacting church business.
C.D. SMITH is about to give his cottage at Half Moon Bay a coat of new paint. – Comet. So much more thoughtful than to use old paint.

Raising Fancy Birds as a Diversion Costly to Mussel Rock Man
When J.E. BARNES of Mussel Rock went into poultry raising as a diversion he took the work up so competently that before he, himself, was aware, he had very finely stocked poultry yards. He raises turkeys, chickens and ducks.
Many a favored guest sat down to a chicken dinner prepared by the skillful hand which directs the culinary department of the Mussel Rock establishment. Not an effeminate hand, for Mr. BARNES has not yet surrendered command of the citadel, no matter how strong the contending forces have been.
The main trouble about the chicken dinners is that it was discovered the Mussel Rock poultry feeds were not confined to the Mussel Rock table. One by one those fine fowls disappeared from their familiar haunts and them they went in flock, and the climax came when a fine prize turkey gobbler was found missing.
If the looters of the roost had let well enough alone – but here is where that laggard, Justice, begins her work. In some way the Ocean Shore Railroad chanced to see these poultry fanciers, then Constable "Duck" SULLIVAN found the bird in a refrigerator in Daly City. The last we heard of the offenders they were before Judge Ellis C. JOHNSON, who gave the fellow 60 days, with a suspension of sentence to enable him to leave town before 6 o’clock that evening. – Coast Side Comet
George E. DUNN, editor of the Coast Side Comet, has taken on added glory in the new role of life saver. Last Sunday while Mrs. Albert J. EVANS of San Francisco, who was spending a vacation in Moss Beach, was enjoying a dip in the surf, she was attacked by an octopus which fastened its tentacles about her and almost made away with her into deep water. Editor DUNN and Wm. GROSSKURTH, proprietor of the Marine View hotel, rushed to the rescue of Mrs. EVANS and, after a fierce struggle with the monster, succeeded in effecting a rescue, but not until all three persons were almost exhausted.
