Fritz HANSEN is the happiest individual in Daly City, with that new forty-dollar automobile. He has promised the Record editor a ride and the invitation is being seriously – quite seriously considered.
An unidentified man was struck by a south-bound San Mateo electric car near Holy Cross Cemetery about 10 o’clock Sunday night. He was picked up by the car crew and taken to San Mateo, where he was sent to the Red Cross Hospital. He was unconscious and there was nothing to show his identity. He was poorly dressed and was apparently a laborer or tramp.
Last Monday was the date designated for the Civil Service examination to fill the position of postmaster of Daly City, made vacant by the resignation of Mrs. Hazel C. RUSSEL. Mrs. Janet Currie CAMPBELL, Samuel CERF and William Wingo BALLENGER took the examination, either of whom would undoubtedly fill the bill and give good service to the patrons of the office.

Al Green “Took The Cake”
A.J. GREEN often demonstrates his foxyness and gets away with it, but on Tuesday evening Mrs. GREEN spoiled one of his prettiest stunts. It seems the Lady Forresters were preparing a nice feed at their hall and about dark, Al met a couple of the ladies with cakes and told them that he had been delegated to assist them, so they filled his arms with the delicious edibles and he at once started for the Civic Betterment League hall, where there was also a big feed that evening. He had not gone far however when Mrs. GREEN emerged from the door of the restaurant across the street and with the assistance of the other ladies rescued all the cakes except three nice ones which helped the Betterment League banquet very much.
Boy Dies Under Auto
With a group of school playmates, Lester BACIGALUPI, aged nine, ran into the street at Twenty-fifth and Valencia last Friday, laughing over his shoulder as he look back, and was killed. The front wheel of an auto driven by Thomas SPELLMAN, a contractor living in Colma, caught the child’s foot and the fender knocked him down.
Witnesses to the accident say SPELLMAN was driving slowly and that the boy was look backwards rather that in the direction he was going.
SPELLMAN took the lad from the street, and Mrs. SPELLMAN, the only other occupant of the car, held him while SPELLMAN hastened to St. Luke’s Hospital, near by. Dr. SANDBURY pronounced the child dead on his arrival at the hospital.
There were no bruises on the boy’s body and Dr. SANDBURY was unable to state whether he had died from shock or a broken neck. SPELLMAN was charged with manslaughter.
Carl Browne Dies
Word was received from Washington of the death there Friday of Carl BROWNE of Calistoga, Sacramento and the world at-large. He died of heart disease. BROWNE was a leader of COXEY’s army in the famous march to Washington. Later he married COXEY’s daughter.
BROWNE for 50 years was one of Californi’a most picturesque figures. He was an artist, printer, writer, publisher, a knight of the open road, a champion of the poor and the weak, a labor patriot and a lover of humanity.
For 35 years he attended the sessions of the State Legislature. Every Senator, Assemblyman, attaché and newspaperman in the last generation has had his face drawn by Carl BROWNE. In those years he brought out a daily paper “The Labor Knight.”
In 1877 BROWNE first sprang into public view by joining himself to Dennis KEARNEY, the sand-lot agitator, who was then making a great anti-Chinese stir. They were partners in a hand-print journal.
BROWNE led the first parade of the unemployed through Chicago in 1893 and then became first lieutenant in COXEY’s army to the national capitol. General COXEY’s daughter divorced him in 1910.
In 1906 BROWNE ran for Governor of California on the People’s Party ticket, making his campaign from curbstones and soap boxes.
What Our Neighbors Along the Pacific's Shore Have Been Doing, Are Doing and Will Do
Chas. McCOREY is making some very notable improvements on his house at Granada.
Mrs. Margaret HATTABAUGH of Pescadero and E. BURTOLLITO of Half Moon Bay passed away last week.

Cleaveland GRANGER formerly of Half Moon Bay and Miss Dora SHROUDER of San Francisco were married in the city Monday and left immediately for Oklahoma, where Mr. GRANGER has work in an oil field.
Rev. Father A. ANDRIANO, Mrs. Ed CAMPBELL and Phillip GONZALEZ of Half Moon Bay were called to Pescadero Wednesday where they held High Mass over the body of the late Mrs. Joseph FRISCO. Mrs. GRISCO was a native of Ireland, aged 78 years and has lived on the Coast Side since the age of 16 years.
Little Gertrude, only child of Mr and Mrs. Charles T. NYE, and who narrowly escaped a fatal scalding nearly a month ago, has convalesced sufficiently to get out into the sunshine when it arrives. The loss of a few freckles by reason of her new face, acquired through a peeling off of the skin after the burning, doesn’t worry her a bit. She says she can get some more.
It’s a Good Ad
F.R. BARRETT of the Steamer San Juan, which runs between San Francisco and Panama, was at Montara Sunday visiting Harr WAGNER. He is like Capt. JORDAN, who has command of a passenger boat running between San Francisco and Los Angeles. He paid one of the highest compliments that could be paid to any locality, in saying that the 21 street lights at Farallone was one of best advertisements that could be, as it showed that the citizens were up-to-the-minute and believes in leading the procession of progress. Mr. BARRETT stated that hundreds of passengers aboard the San Juan had asked him what place it was and reports that the lights made a fine showing from the ocean and he was trying to picture in his minds eye how 101 street lights would appear.
Salada Beach and Brighton Beach are the next places on the Coast Side, Mr. BARRETT, to have lights. Watch for them. - Comet
