The stores were all open and brightly lighted and it made a brilliant and lively scene. The band has greatly improved and the harmony is fuller and better than ever before. Next Saturday’s concert will be rendered on Kentucky Street.

F.A. Fresler who is traveling this month in the interest of the Petaluma Incubator Co. arrived home with a splendid specimen of horned toad, which he picked up several days ago in the streets of Kerman. He has the reptile quite tame and carries it about with him. It is a splendid specimen. He has a string tied around the neck of Mr. Toad so he can trace it when it buries itself in the sand. The freak is on exhibition in the Chamber of Commerce office.
