fireman's funeral

Above, Joseph H. Maulhard becomes the first firefighter to be buried in the Firemen's Relief Assn. plot at Inglewood Park Cemetery. Unfortunately, I can't find any information about whether his death was related to his job or some other cause. Below, hurt feelings and distress at Magnolia Avenue Christian Church after Sunday school teacher Charles O. Goodwin, a wealthy bachelor, banishes some young women for planning a party where there was to be dancing! And let's not even talking about the "kissing games" ... The Times gleefully reports the Hearst papers' latest efforts to clear three newsmen accused of stealing Great White Fleet photographs from a San Diego studio and publishing them in the Los Angeles Examiner. There are lots of stories about "the Hearstlings" doing things like this, but it's nice to see it confirmed in print.
