LOCAL AND PERSONAL
The Soldiers' Auxiliary is now completing arrangements for a concert and play for the benefit of the Seventh Company mess fund, which will be given at the Page Theatre in the very near future. The exact date and program will be announced later.
In juvenile court Friday afternoon Judge TouVelle severely lectured John Parker, the youth who purloined the automobiles of Frank Owens and County Prosecutor Roberts recently and used them for joy rides. The court then paroled Parker into the custody of H. C. Garnett. Judge TouVelle exonerated Fred Southern, who was arrested on a similar charge, as the testimony showed that he had nothing to do with the taking of the cars and innocently took part in the joy rides, thinking each time that the car was rented by Parker.
Saturday was the best and biggest day of the season at the public market. There was a large supply of vegetables, produce and fruits, which were closed out early to the many customers. There was a big demand for red raspberries, but none were to be had and there will probably be no more this season. Last Thursday the last of the Applegate raspberries were sold in the market.
Mrs. C. H. H. Parker and daughter, Miss Charlotte, of Los Angeles, who came to this city last week to see her son Herbert depart with the Seventh company for Fort Stevens, left for home this morning. The Parkers still own a ranch east of the city where they resided for four years. They moved to Los Angeles six years ago.
Fred Sample, who has been electrician at the Sterling mine for the past four years, left this morning for Copco, where he has accepted a similar position at the plant of the California-Oregon Power company.
