Today is St. Patrick’s Day, the anniversary of the birth of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland and mentor of the emerald isle. Falling in Holy Week, the day was not observed with the usual festivities, although in the larger cities it was observed last week by holding patriotic exercises, addresses, etc. In this city the day was not forgotten, and on all sides were noticed the bits of shamrock, some of then genuine leaves from Old Ireland, while window adornments were in green and emblematical of the day. Years ago when a lodge of the Order of Hibernians was in existence here, splendid observations of the day were held, but of late years there has been no public observance here.

Teddy, the big St. Bernard belonging to H.H. Peck, the death of which was noted in Friday’s Argus was a dog with a history. He was a genuine St. Bernard, purchased as a tiny pup by the late Charles Fair while traveling in the Swiss alps about 14 years ago. He was brought to California and was the object of much attention in San Francisco, receiving many newspaper articles owing to his great pedigree and the rescue work done by his sire. Later Mr. Fair presented him to Mrs. Zoe McCaughern, then Miss Zoe Fairbanks of this city, and she in turn gave him to W.H. Van Marter from whom Mr. Peck secured him. He weighed 119 pounds and was the largest dog in this vicinity and the pet of the whole city.
