VOGLER of the old reliable Vista Grande Bakery and Grocery, is making an extensive improvement in his baking department. He can’t expect to improve the quality of his products, for they are at the top notch now, but will increase his facilities so that he can produce more, so as to meet the rapidly growing demands.
Last Tuesday, a party consisting of Judge Ellis C. JOHNSON, F.A. SMACK, G. SEILLEY, G.F. WILDE and Stephen SPONDER visited Redwood City in SMACK’s machine and appeared before Judge BUCK for the naturalization of the three latter gentlemen, SMACK and JOHNSON being the witnesses. They passed their rigid examination in fine shape and with intelligence that insures good, progressive citizenship.
About 4:30 Monday afternoon fire started in the paint shop of Victor ROSENBAUM on Los Angeles avenue and the flames spread so rapidly that the shop was entirely destroyed, notwithstanding the fire ladies responded promptly and did fine work. In saving the shoe shop of Abel AFIBISH, one side of which caught fire and was burning briskly, the fireman deserve particular praise for their promptness. ROSENBAUM’s insurance could not be learned, but AFIBISH had a policy for $800, so his partial loss is covered.

DANMANN and three detectives were sent out to make arrests. Permission to search for suspects was refused and the officers guarded the place until dark when they phoned to the sheriff’s office in Redwood City. Upon Mansfield’s arrival, an entrance was effected and C.C. SMITH was found hiding in a chicken house. He was taken into custody and turned over to the city officer. (Comet)

On leaving his liquor store for the evening he went to his apartments in the same building where he was met by charming wife and about forty friends from Daly City, Colma and San Francisco and their greetings were so profound that Mr. VIRENO was overcome with sincere emotion. After music, singing and dancing, the party partook of an elegant midnight dinner to which all did ample justice. It was a very enjoyable affair.
