On New Years day, while visiting friends in this city Mr and Mrs Jess SHEPHERD of Sunny Side lost their neat little bungalow by fire.
James BURNET of Los Olivos avenue is making a substantial improvement next to his own residence, in the way of an attractive cottage for a friend of his. A few more such buildings would do much to beautify our city.
Between the first and middle of December the Record stated that our postmistress, Mrs. Hazel C. RUSSEL, would soon resign, which the lady denied. It is now a definite fact that the Record was correct and the postal authorities are arranging for a civil service examination to fill the place.
The marsh near Redwood City last Saturday was the scene of a bad accident, in which Harold STEVENS, while hunting had three fingers of his right hand shot off.
He returned to Redwood City at once where the ugly wound was carefully dressed, but it was deemed best to take the boy to the Children’s hospital in San Francisco, which was done by Joe NASH and he will remain there for treatment until entirely well.
Young Harold STEVENS is a very bright boy and was a page of State Senate when the last Legislature convened. SO perfect was the satisfaction given, that Harold was presented with a beautiful gold watch upon which was engraved “Presented to Harold Stevens by the State Senate of California, 1912-1913.”
Changes Business Headquarters
The E.B. and A.L. STONE Company has filed a notice in the clerk’s office to the effect that the corporation has changed its place of business from Oakland to San Francisco. The usual notice was published in Alameda county and the Superior Court granted the petition. In the articles of incorporation, Oakland was named as the principal place of business.
Confidence in Supervisor BROWN
Supervisor WILLIAM BROWN has always proved himself a courteous and attentive presiding officer of the Board of Supervisors, both in his relations to his fellow members and the public who have business dealings with the board. It is greatly to his credit to note that he is so much a gentleman as not to lose his temper even though unjustly and grossly assailed as was the case at Monday’s meeting of the board. Mr. BROWN has spend his whole lie in San Mateo county and there is not one that doubts his honesty and integrity. Not an act of his since he became a member of the Board of Supervisors can looked upon with suspicion. It would take stronger evidence to impeach his character – much stronger than can ever be offered by Edward LIVERNASH of Belmont – Redwood City Democrat.
Three Passengers Painfully Hurt and Locomotives Smashed Up
Three persons were injured and two big locomotives on the Ocean Shore Railroad were badly wrecked in a head-on collision of an inbound passenger train and outgoing work train shortly before noon Tuesday. The crash came between Onondaga and Palmetto stations.

C.A. RASCO of Salada Beach, severe lacerations of the face and scalp, bruises about the body.
M. FLANNERY of San Bruno avenue, concussions of the hip, lacerations about the body.
John M. LEMOS, a laborer, lacerations of the scalp.
Immediately after the crash the injured men were rushed to the Central Emergency Hospital in the city for treatment.
RASCO and FLANNERY were passengers on the train, bound from Half Moon Bay to San Francisco. LEMOS is employed by the railroad and was riding on the engine of the work train.

Livernash Bobs Up
The inflammatory de NIVERNAIS, born LIVERNASH, long quenched, blazed out like a beacon light down the peninsula the other day. A belated capitalist now, with property to be enhanced by good roads, he demands that the highway down the peninsula be built on the east side of the railroad track. Colonel LOVELAND, John A. BRITTON, George HOLBERTON and hundreds of other public spirited citizens have long been agitating in favor of a road on the west side, not to improve anybody’s property, but to avoid a crossing. They obtained rights of way in the neighborhood of Redwood City to ensure the building of a straight road on one side of the railroad. But now comes the inflammatory de NIVERNAIS or LIVERNASH in a terrible fury, and with his bad manners, charging that the Southern Pacific is behind the project and accusing a citizen of Redwood City of having been seduced by the octopus. It used to be a terrible thing to have LIVERNASH point the finger of accusation at you, but that was when he was a salaried agent, of a powerful newspaper and a professional agitator for organized labor. When he moved into nobility by changing his name he lost his vogue and the virulence of his venom. – Town Talk
