Mrs. DORN, wife of Superior Judge N.A. DORN. Their daughter, Miss Mabel
DORN, who is attending school at Santa Clara, sent her mother the following
neat tribute in verse on the happy occasion:
TO MY DEAR MAMMA:
As the stars peep out in their beauty,
In the vast, blue dome above,
And I hear no longer sweet song birds
Warbling their lays of love,
A vision of home comes oer me,
And, at once, I think of thee,
And my heart is gratefully weaving
A wish for the days to be.
For tomorrow, my own dear Mamma,
We honor the day of they birth,
The day on which thou wert given
To brighten for us this earth.
And I pray that thy days may be sweetened,
And gladdened wherere thou mayst roam;
That thy life may be long and happy,
O, warm loving heart of our home!
Mayst thou have but few cares and trials,
In the years that must yet be trod,
And each hour bear a burden of gladness
To thee, from the hand of God.
As each rose we find set amidst thorns
Pours forth still its sweetness, I pray
O, Rose of our hearts and our household,
Oer our cares breathe loves balsam for aye.
**Brief Mention --
-One of the Index force had the pleasure last week of sampling some
excellent peaches raised on the farm of Mr. Pleasant THOMPSON in Pine
cañon, near King City. Mr. THOMPSON has one of the nicest and best kept
little orchards in the county.
**Broke His Arm -- Wm. ROGERS, of the Toro, attended Admission Day
celebration in Salinas, and on returning home in the evening, was thrown
from his horse, sustaining a fracture of the right forearm and an extensive
wound of the scalp. Dr. RICHMOND fixed him up and he is now doing as well
as could be expected.

-While one of the skin game sharpers were at work in the circus grounds
Monday, and Mr. CLARK of Pacific Grove stood near by, one of the cappers
asked Mr. CLARK to draw a card, which called for $5, which amount the man
running the game threw down upon the table with the remark, see what you
have won. Mr. CLARK immediately picked up the money and pocketed it, when
the dealer endeavored to take it away from him. In the tussel Mr. CLARK was
cut in the hand by a lance ring on the dealers finger. Mr. CLARK swore out
a warrant for the latter, but when the officers went to Salinas, the dealer
and pals were not with the circus.
-Constable E.E. TRINE, of Pacific Grove, captured a Chinese girl on Monday
night last after a hard chase. She belonged to the Halcyon gang, who were
captured by Constable WOLTER a few days since. When first heard of she was
hid away in a Chinese shell store at Pescadero, but was carried away from
there in a boat across Carmel Bay to Point Lobos, where she was caught by
the officer. A warrant was soon sworn out before Justice MICHAELIS against
the girl for vagrancy, but on Wednesday evening she was turned over to the
United States authorities, Deputy Inspector J. McINTOSH having been sent
down from San Francisco to take her in charge. The Chinese here were very
much excited over the matter and tried to prevent the girl from going, as
she was valued at $2000, and different companies tried to get her in their

his wifes health, and on that account he will probably move back to the
-George HOMMELL, of Soledad, met with a painful accident last Monday at the
Gonzales Hotel in this city. He is a strong, healthy young man, with
muscles well developed, and as a test of his strength and skill lifted a
10-gallon keg of beer above his head without bending his arms. While
holding the keg he became unbalanced, causing a fracture of the right arm
just above the elbow. Dr. GORDON set the broken member and the victim of
the unfortunate accident is doing as well as could possibly be expected.
-T.J. FIELD and Francis DOWD, of Monterey, 2 enterprising land-owners, have
already employed a surveyor and civil engineer to make a preliminary survey
of the country with a view of diverting the water of the Salinas river and
utilizing the same for irrigation purposes. From what we have been informed
the opinion of the civil engineer employed by these gentlemen is to the
effect that the irrigation of the Salinas valley is quite practicable and
that there is sufficient water in the river for that purpose. It is the
intention of the promoters of the scheme to tap the Salinas about 5 miles
south of Soledad at a point close to the foothills, thus insuring
irrigation to a large area of land, which includes the upland as well as
