The board of supervisors have appointed T. J. Fisher constable for Coronado township. The Coronado Foundry and Machine-Company have recently made bids and estimates on considerable work, including a government quarantine station. With a well equipped plant and a deserved reputation for first class work, the company is in a position to successfully compete with any similar firm on the Pacific coast.

School closed last week. Miss Agnes Polhamus was the only graduate in the high school, and is the first to receive a diploma from the Coronado high school.

E. C. Dyer, formerly manager of Hotel del Coronado, is manager of the “Family Dormitory,” a large World’s Fair hotel in Chicago.

J. Y. Jackson, manager of the Coronado Mineral Water Company, has returned from an extended business trip throughout the northwest.

Mrs. J. D. Sprockets and family arrived at Hotel del Coronado last Sunday and will spend the summer here.

Miss Belle Stewart celebrated her birthday anniversary on June third. This charming young lady was the recipient of many remembrances.

Ladies of Coronado. To save you the trouble and expense of sending to San Francisco, I have bought a complete line of Mrs. Nettie Harrison’s world-famed toilet articles. Every lady can positively have health and beauty by using them. T. J. Fisher, druggist, Hotel del Coronado.

The Coronado Railroad Company has ordered in the east, 26 freight cars, presumably for use in hauling dirt and rock to be used for paving on Orange avenue, also for the construction of the jetty. [...] On Monday night the Coronado Board of Trustees awarded the contract for paving and sidewalking Orange avenue, and we have the assurance that work will begin inside of three weeks. No more sensible move to gain population could be made than that of street improvement. People are not fond of gathering wood with the soles of their shoes by walking over plank sidewalks, nor do they relish wading through dust and weeds. On the contrary they will put up with other inconveniences and live elsewhere rather than reside even in so attractive a place as Coronado when they have to suffer from the many unpleasant features of poor sidewalks. The completion of the proposed improvement will greatly enhance the value of property along the avenue and ultimately lead to many more fine residences on the property benefited. The deed has been filed which conveys about eighteen acres to the United States government for approaches to the Zuninga jetty. The consideration named is $710,000. The jetty will be extended about 1500 feet from the Coronado shore and will be made of rock, the purpose being to concentrate the ‘Waters in the channel and cause the tide by its contracted force to constantly deepen the passage to the bay.
