Mr. J. STAYAN, an aged messenger between here and San Francisco, died suddenly at the Red Cross Hospital Saturday morning. He failed to recover from an operation for bowel trouble.

Used Bad Language
P. LACAZE, proprietor of the Burlingame French Laundry, was on trial before Justice Elfving Tuesday on a charge proffered by Mrs. MORSER of using insulting language to her. It appears that the laundryman claimed the lady owed him money for washing and Mrs. MORSER countered with the charge that LACZE lost some of her clothes sent to the wash and refused to pay until they were returned.
LACAZE was persistent and dunned the lady on the street. She was equally firm in her refusal. LACAZE lost his temper and used language that would not look well in print. Hence the suit. The result was the conviction of the defendant and a fine of $10, which was promptly paid. LACAZE was represented by Attorney McCURDY and Mrs. MORSER was her own attorney.
