SCOTT, W.A. Brewer and Norris K. DAVIS, trustee. The certificates were neatly bound and carefully tied with pink ribbon. This was the work of the popular clerk, John A. HOEY.

The San Mateo County Board of Education met at the office of the County Superintendent of Schools last Saturday. Certificates were issued on credentials to several applicants. The certificates of Mary STEWART, Annie C. MULLEN and Jennie JONES were renewed for six years. Natalie HANSEN and Margaret SILVERIA were recommended to the State Board of Education as applicants for life certificates.
Stanley Smith Given Probation
Stanley Smith, who entered the DeSABLA home at Hillsborough on February 15 and stole a diamond-set cuff buttons valued at $140 from Leon DeSABLA, pleaded guilty on Wednesday and the following day the court admitted the prisoner to probation for a period of one year, during which time SMITH will have to report the first of every month to the district attorney, telling of his whereabouts and his occupation. At the end of the year the information filed against him will be dismissed. SMITH stated to Judge Buck that he was born in England 20 years ago and came to this county when 12 years old. His parents reside in Portland. Young SMITH promised to make good if given his liberty. He appeared penitent and was in tears when making his statement to the court. In response to Judge Buck as to whether or not he wanted SMITH sent to San Quentin, Leon de SABLA who was in court, replied that he did not want to send the young man to San Quentin, but thought that some slight punishment should be inflicted in order that the young man might mend his ways and become a useful citizen. Judge Buck in passing judgment severely lectured SMITH, calling his attention to the ways of evil doers and the result. SMITH, who is a handsome fellow, told the court that the reason he committed the crime was that he lost his head.
