Supervisor and Mrs. James T. Casey’s Daughters, Elise to John F. Barrett;
Margy to Robt. D. Savage
Last Tuesday forenoon, St. Anne’s church, Colma, was the scene of a splendid double wedding, in which the charming and accomplished daughters of Supervisor and Mrs. James T. CASEY plighted their faith forever and forever under the beautiful Catholic ceremony, with Rev. Father James A. COOPER officiating.
Miss Elsie became the bride of John Francis BARRETT and Miss Margy became the bride of Robert Daniel SAVAGE, both gentlemen are of the highest standing. Mr. BARRETT is a successful contractor in San Francisco and Mr. SAVAGE a wealthy farmer of Half Moon Bay.
St. Anne’s church was never more beautifully decorated. The main setting was green composed of palms, ferns and ivy and here and there were sweet orange blossoms and other flowers, just enough to make the little church a bower of beauty, with the sacred altar as the center of splendor. The brides were married in their traveling suits.
St. Ann’s church was filled to overflowing with friends, mostly of Colma of course, but many very prominent people were present from all over the county, every locality being well represented owing to the extensive acquaintance of the contracting parties. It was truly a wedding where the most profound good wishes reigned supreme and ever incident was that of joy.
After the ceremony a reception was given at the Casey home and an elegant wedding breakfast served, after being blessed by that grand Reverend Father, James A. COOPER, whose sublime personality always commands respect and admiration from everybody.
Mr and Mrs BARRETT will pass their honeymoon motoring through Southern California and Mr and Mrs. SAVAGE will tour the United States, including Washington and all other prominent cities.
Deputy Recorder to be Bride
Miss Minnie GOULD, deputy in the Recorder’s office has resigned her position and her place has been filled by the appointment of Miss Georgiana GRAY Burlingame. Miss GOULD is to be united in marriage to Harry T. ASHFORD, a former Stanford student but now an engineer for the Pacific Gas and Electric Company and is located at San Francisco.
Former Resident Dead
George F. KELLEY (as printed), a photographer of San Francisco and father of Edith KELLY, formerly of Redwood City but now a teacher in the High School of San Mateo, dropped dead, presumably of heart failure, while riding from San Francisco to Oakland on a Southern Pacific train. KELLY, who was about 60 years of age, had just left the home of his son, W.G. KELLY, 1627 Sonoma street, Berkeley, and carried a suit-case containing presents which he had received. His son is a traveling accountant in the employ of the Southern Pacific company. The dead man was a pioneer of the State and is survived by four children. He often visited here. – Democrat
New Deputy Tax Collector
Frank GRIFFIN, a graduate of the commercial department of the local high school, and one of the bright pupils of the class of 1912, has been appointed chief deputy in the tax collector’s office in place of Miss Elna ALLEN, who recently resigned. Owing to the vast amount of work in the office, Mr. McSWEENEY preferred the assistance of a young man instead of a woman. Besides, Mr. GRIFFIN is an expert stenographer and typewriter.
What Our Neighbors Along the Pacific's Shore Have Been Doing, Are Doing and Will Do
Mrs. MORTON is entertaining her sister, Mrs. HILTON, who has just arrived from New York City
Gertrude NYE, the bright, vivacious six-year old daughter of Mr and Mrs Charles NYE of Moss Beach, met with a distressing accident on the evening of the last day of 1913. In hurrying, child like, to put away her slippers, she ran against a pan of scalding water that her father had just lifted from the stove, dashing the merciless fluid on her face and shoulders. Her father immediately grasped her and, thrusting her under a hydrant, tore her clothes from her and applied sweet oil liberally, assisted by Mrs. NYE. The quick treatment probably saved her life or permanent disfigurement. It is regarded as miraculous that none of the water entered the eyes or ears. The little sufferer is getting along nicely – Coast Side Comet
J.C. and Claude LITTLEPAGE gave a house party from Friday to Monday at their beach bungalows, and the weather being ideal a most enjoyable time was had. Among the guests were Willis HALL, Leo V. BELDEN, Miss Frieda HILBERT, Miss Louise HEWES, Misses Mildred and Dorothy SHIRLEY. A climb to the top of Montara Mountain (directly back of Marine View – elevation 2300 feet) was made by the party Sunday morning, after which a dip in the ocean was enjoyed by all. A swimming race between Messrs. BELDEN, HALL, and LITTLEPAGE was won by the former. Mr. BELDEN is one of the crack swimmers of the Olympic Club and is an expert with the Austrian Crawl stroke used by Duke Khanamaku, the world’s champion. Mr. BELDEN considers the cove at Marine View idea for swimming on account of the calm water.
On the Rocks
Near the shores of eternity, a physical and financial wreck, in a room now far from Redwood City depot, lies one whose kindly face is not unfamiliar to many San Mateans and residents of Redwood. All who know him will be loath to realize that reference is made to “Cap” PRICE< for he was ever of a sunny, romancing nature, though it harmed no one, and led all to think he was prepared to meet any emergency. Yet he is there, without a penny, dashed hither and thither by an exhausted vitality, the ominous anguish of Time’s breakers ever signaling his fate.
Unless the many who know him respond, he will soon be compelled to go to the poor house to pass the few days that will mark his stay here. We believe he has enough friends to avert this humiliation.
Pete THORSEN of San Mateo or George STACORD of Redwood will accept contributions for his aid.
