Cupid in the Court House
Two of the busiest county offices are those of District Attorney SWART and Surveyor NEUMAN, yet Cupid appears to have designs that will undoubtedly disarrange the tranquil smoothness with which they glide. Now, readers, this is a secret and you must not tell. The Honeybee – Miss Beatrice Fox, the very efficient and popular stenographer in the District Attorney'’ office, has captivated the heart of Neuman’s valuable deputy, C.L. DIMMITT, and there will be a wedding before many moons.
Every day some of my friends ask me why I am not going to be a candidate again for Sheriff at the next primary election. It seems that some parties are circulating reports that I am not in the race. I am in the race, and will be a candidate next fall. I thank my friends for their past support, and hope my conduct of the office will merit their support in the future.
Very truly
J.H. MANSFIELD, Sheriff San Mateo County
