On the patqk of barren ground in front of an old house on Brush Street a withered ancient was feeding a bonfire with the contents of three hair trunks and a camphorwood chest. Bent and i gnarled like a lesser imp from underground, L he stirred up his little inferno with a charred,' stick and replenished the flames from time to time with packets of oloT letters and yellowed documents. : And now . his job , neared completion. He .lifted the last t packet of letters from the carophor-'V wood chest and dropped it on the t fire. Puffs of smoke billowed up like cotton wool and then the yel- low flames t look hold and the paper began to curl and blacken around . .the edges, .. ' A car careened around the corner into Brush Street, came to a jarring halt at the curb. A young man leaped out, ran up to the bonfire and snatched a burning envelope from; the top of the pile. He ground it between his bare hands to smother the flames. When he opened his hands again' there was a pinch of ashes cupped in his palm. He gazed at it and gave an exclamation of disappointment The old man looked stolidly on. OWNER PUZZLED The owner of the house came down the -steps and eyed the stranger inquiringly., "I got here as soon as I could when I heard what you were doing," the young man told him. "If Td arrived a little sooner I might h.ve saved you a small fortune." The owner looked' perplexed. "A small' fortune?" The young man indicated the pinch of ashes in his palm. This one item alone' might have been worth anywhere between 125 and $6000. It was provisional cover. They originated in Civil War days, before the Confederacy had time to isrue stamps of its own for use throughout the South. This one had "Ten Cents; Paid" written ol it and it bore the signature1 of the postmaster in some southern city." Who is this man that snatches letters out Of bonfires with the zeal ous devotion of Trelawny puljing Shelley's heart out of the flaming pyre at Viareggio? ; H s a friend of mine, to whom I sometimes refer as "that guy who . collects postage stamps." To the stamp-wise 'he is a philatelist PHILATELIC GRAPEVINE Through' the philatelic grapevine rny friend learned that the owner of the house on Brush Street was clearing out; th attic and intended to bum an accumulation of old letters that had "come with the house" when his father bought it years before. Thei house had at one time been occupied by a '.Chinese importer and the letters in the Collection consisted mainly of requests for merchandise and other business correspondence from various parts of the world. The attempt to rescue the collection from destruction was just, another of the countless little dramas that come under the general head of philately. I i.. Y When 'I ajsHe W friend now one goes about, this matter of becoming a philatelist he said: fThe best source of material is your own attic, if you have one. Old letters and documents often yield valuable material. When rare old stamps are found they should be left intact on their Covers" and an expert consulted regarding their valuation."" girnal: Patrolman , William H. Stanton's stores of his., experiences with off-beam drivers include one that might will be titled, "The Mystery of the Double-jointed Signal." A woman, oh her way down town one morning, was holding her hand .out of the tar window and was twisting and (turning it in,' a manner calculated to confuse any and all drivers. Shf kept - making this strange gesture but did not turn either to right or left Patrolman Stanton drew up alongside . and said: "What i State are you from. Madam? We have no such signal as that in California" . . U "Oh, that's no signal," tie woman replied. "I put my nail bolish on before I left home, and Tra drying it on my way to work." . . . The pay-off came when Patrolman Stanton told the story at headquarters later. "Why, I do that every, morning," one of the lady listener! said. tSo do lots of others, but I guess ltd better not mention any names." I :. ' BIDS ASKED ON 2 GIANT t NERS; s:f.

At that time it was still owned by descendants of Moses Chasei first American settler in Oak-land. Now, the home at 404 East Eighth Street is being torn down. Moses Chase's Home, Built 97 Years Ago, Gives Way for Expansion of Machinery Firm Oakland'! last material evidence of its first American settler was being obliterated today. The home which Moses Chase built 97. years ago, the .very' ground on which he stood as. he scanned surrounding fields of waving grain, backed by a forest of oak trees, will disappear from the path of industrial progress. Workmen . today started razing the old Chase home at 404 East Eighth Street) a small rear portion of which is the original cabin to which Chase planned to bring his intended . bride, Ellen-Clinton. She was a Massachusetts girl who died before the wedding ceremony, but her name will forever be kept alive in its association with a park, a district of the 'city, and innumerable business enterprises BECOMES TRUCK YARD Following razing of the structure, the knoll on which it stands will be levelled, the ground surfaced, and a truck yard will occupy the site or tne rim- frame dwelling to oe erected here. w" J ' rl Little remains of the original cabin, a one-4-oom structure 14 feet wide and 24 feet long, which Chase built from ship timbers, driftwood, and rough boards from crude mills in the redwoods along San Antonio Creek. To it, in 1856, was added what became the main section of the house, while other alterations and additions expanded, the cabin into a two-story . building of 17 rooms, during its 86-year occupancy by Chase, his son, and his grandson. The original section, after stand ing intact until 10 years ago; was cut in half and became the laundry of the home. w LUMBER -SOUND v ' ': H Workmen 1 from the Symon Brothers Wrecking Company found the redwood lumber as sound as the day the home was built, nearly a century aa They pulled out hand-wrought nails, bearing the marks of the hammers which fashioned them in some New England foundry. The nails are movf. only' a curiosity, but the . lumber will see still further service, probably in the new, home or some young war veteran.

Probably taken in - By DAVE HOPE lowed by failures in, both business and gold mining, complicated by two romantic tragedies. Yet, history re- cords him among the founders of the City of Oakland. Retiring from the sea at 31, he went into business as a ship chandler in his home town of Newbury, Mass. In 1840 he married Mary Ellen Stickney, sister of a schoolday chum, who died three weeks after giving birth to their son, George. Chase left the boy with his sister, the wife of Capt. James Allen, and turned his attention to business. He pros pered for, time, met and became engaged to Ellen Clinton, then faced financial ruin' as the advent of steam put sailing ship building in the doldrums. MINER'S FEVER The lure of the goldrush drew Chase to California in 1849, but he was one of those who found no gold in the Mother Lode. Sick with miner's fever and completely dis couraged, he sought cooling sea breezes, pitched a tent on West Oakland point, - later - moving to what U now the foot of Broadway. There he was found late in '49 by the Patten brothers, Robert, Wil- lian, and Edward who had rowed over from San Francisco to explore the Contra Costa. Association with them revived . Chase. Together they leased land from Antonio-Maria Peralta, hunted in the oak forest, fished in the streams, planted grain and potatoes, and ferried their game and produce across the Bay for sale. Chase built his cabin and . embarked on a hazardous nine-months journey around the Horn, to claim his bride. She died before his ar rival, and Chase returned to Call fornia, to be joined here by his sis ter and his young son who, in later years, was to become one of the early treasurers of Alameda County. Litigation over property titles ended in 1852 withf Chase and the Pattens agreeing' to survey a tract and establish - a - townsite. ; They named., the village Clinton, in memory of the girl who never lived to see California. ; Development of surrounding lands came swiftly with; houses and busi nes enterprises ; rapidly.. appearing along the Estuary.

Two years later Brooklyn was annexed to the City of Oakland. , NEAR RECLUSE ' Chase spent the later years of his life as a near recluse on Bay Farm Island, but he died in the family home February 17, 1891, at the age of 84. Through three generations the old home continued as the family residence, . until the death 'in 1936 of the pioneer's grandson, Albert B Chase. It, was sold by his widow to Guido Pacini, then a Pittsburs' trucking contractor, now retired and living at Santa Cruz. Antique furniture. Including articles from Chase's New England home, were sold at auction. Pacini graded an adjoining lot and erected a building for his trucking pusmess. ine oia nome was com pletely r-enovated and has since con tinued in use as a residence, most recently as the home of Pacini's daughter, Mrs. W.
