Saturday, 21 SEPTEMBER 1878

BORN - Near Antioch, September 15, 1878, to the wife of H. KNIGHT, a son.

The musical concert given at the Congregational Church last Saturday evening in aid of the yellow fever sufferers was reasonably well attended, though the house was not filled as might have been expected on an occasion which appealed to the public sympathy for contributions to suffering humanity. As many of our citizens had made liberal donations by subscription, no doubt it somewhat lessened the gross receipts of the concert, which were $52.50. Professor ZIFFERER brought with him an array of musical talent from Martinez, aided by Miss Viola POMEROY and Miss Addie FORCEADE of San Francisco. Miss POMEROY was heartily encored and repeatedly responded to the plaudits of the audience. Miss ROWLEY, Miss May TYLER, Miss Mamie BRYANT and Miss Carrie ANDERSON, each manifested great skill and careful training as pianists. Adelin and Rachel RHINE, of Clayton, gave wonderful evidence of musical skill in playing piano duets and solos. Miss Annie RYAN gave a vocal solo, “Waiting,” and was heartily applauded. Miss Addie JOHNSON of Pacheco, gave a select reading, which was well received. Professor ZIFFERER has resided in Martinez over 2 years succeeding in educating the citizens of that to a higher appreciation of musical culture. His pupils reflect the careful training received and his own efforts are proof that he is master of his profession.
