          The Herald, published at Fresno, California, Tuesday, February 28th, contains the following two articles, one being the notice of the wedding of  John Yarling, son of  Mr. and Mrs. John Yarling, of this city, and the other speaking editorially of  Newman Levinson, who became the owner of the Herald March 1st.
          The editorial reference to Mr. Levinson was as follows:
          "After this evening's issue of the Herald the paper will pass into the management of the strong and the capable hands of Mr. N. J. Levinson.  Mr. Levinson has been connetced[sic] with the press of this state and of Oregon for a great number of years, and it is safe to assume that under his guidance the Herald will become a popular and powerful newspaper.  His wide knowledge of National and coast affairs will make the Herald strong editorially and as he is endowed with the rare gift of getting news there is not the slightest doubt that Fresno will soon be proud of the Herald."

           The burglars who went through  Joseph Levinson's residence Sunday night spent the balance of the night in  A. W. Floyd's stable, just back of his house across the street from Mr. Levinson's, where they used some robes for covers and slept in peace.  When they went away they left the pair of pants and shoes belonging to  Max Glass, who boards at Mr. Levinson's and an old coat belonging to one of them.  The coat was a man's one, and the owner is either a boy or a very small man.
