THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL LOCAL NEWS SUNDAY, MARCH 14, 2004 - A-13 This Was News Continued from Page A-3 time, having recently come from Modoc county. The shooting of Hines was accidental, he having been one of the bystanders. It is fortunate for the shooter and the wounded that the ammunition used by Howe was a little too small for the calibre of the revolver used. The bullets were thus, as it were, spit out loosely and with comparatively little force. Howe was arrested and was admitted to bail in the sum of $1000. It is said there was a lively scrambling for cover when Howe opened fire as the bullets flew promiscuously about the room. FOOTPAD HOLDS UP TWO. On Tuesday night, somewhere about 10 o'clock, Allan Aldrich, son of C. A. Aldrich, was held up on Standley street by a footpad and robbed of thirty-five cents, all the money he had. The robber also took from the boy the keys to W. D. Carothers' cigar store, where the boy works. On reaching home young Aldrich telephoned the news back to the store and Will Carothers and nightwatchman Beattie watched the front door from the outside for some time, but the robber came not. Carothers then started home and when in the vicinity of John Taylor's residence, he was held up, presumably by the same man. On being ordered to halt he pulled a revolver and the thief, taking fright took to his heels. Carothers took a shot at him but missed in the darkness. Wednesday morning Constable Lynch arrested Walter Hendrickson on a warrant issued by Justice Crockett on complaint of Allan Aldrich. Hendrickson has been here for some time, and has been living with some other parties in a cabin on Perkins street. His preliminary examination was set for Thursday morning at 10 o'clock. About 4:20 o'clock last Sunday morning Will Hildreth was held up at the muzzle of a wicked looking revolver within two blocks of the court house square in this city and his money demanded by a footpad. Will was ordered to throw up his hands and he did so, but one hand caught the revolver. Just then the pistol was discharged, the powder burning Mr. Hildreth*s hand and the ball tearing the flesh of his palm. The robber then ran and made his escape and no clue to his identity has been discovered. motion for a re-hearing in the case of the Town of Ukiah City vs. Ukiah Water and Development Company, the damage suit on account of the fire several years ago and on Tuesday Judge White granted a motion for judgment on the pleadings. This ends the matter. TRAGIC DEATH OF W. J. WARD. One of the most horrible accidents of the year took place last Monday in the tan-bark mill at Greenwood in this county. W. J. Ward, a brother-in-law of ex- Assemblyman William Hanen, of Point Arena, was the unfortunate -victim. He was working in the mill, while the other men were away to dinner. In some way he was caught in the machinery and was whirled round and round, crushed and mangled and when discovered life was nearly extinct and he died a few minutes afterward. Both legs were broken and he was bruised and beaten in a most horrible manner. The funeral took place Wednesday, the interment being in the lower cemetery in Anderson valley. Deceased was somewhere near 50 years old and leaves a family consisting of a wife, who is a sister of Wm. Hanen, three sons and one daughter. He was an excellent citizen and his untimely and tragic death is mourned by a host of friends along the coast and in Anderson valley where his home was. THE CITY LOSES. The Supreme Court has denied the WILD FLOWERS SOUVENIRS. Pressed wild flowers are needed for Mendocino county souvenirs, which will be paid for on delivery in good order, at the rate of. $10 per thousand, in quantities of one hundred or more. The flowers must be typical flowers of Mendocino county, gathered in season, and made into well pressed specimens. They need not be mounted, but the varieties must be kept separate, with a notation of the locality, name if known and date of gathering. The early spring flowers are especially desired, and the specimens pressed and dried should be of the flower in bloom, and enough of the stem and leaves to show the plant. The success of the pressed specimens gathered for and used by the County Board of Trade has created a demand for the same kind of work in various other directions. The specimens must be delivered in good condition for mounting to J. C. Ruddock, Ukiah, and the cash will be paid upon delivery. If any information is deemed in mum in WINE LOVERS!

Wednesday it was cloudy and Wednesday night Jupiter Pluvius got to work again. The only disadvantage of the continuous rain is that it is hard on lambs, keeps the roads bad and retards farm work. The rainfall up to 8 o'clock this morning, as recorded by Dr. George McCowen for Ukiah and vicinity was 46.72 inches for the season. Deputy Sheriff Looney and D. H. Lawson came over from Boonville to Ukiah Wednesday. They report the roads in bad condition, owing to the continuous rain, and many bridges have gone out in the First district. Talk about your sports! Last week the Middletown, Lake county, boys rode thirty-three miles over mountain roads and in the storm to play football with the Lakeport team. The game was pulled off all right but neither side scored. LECTURE TONIGHT 'DARWINISM.'

The Mendelssohn Club held their meeting for March at the home of Mrs. E. B. Gibson Thursday evening with a good attendance. All the members were well rendered. The composer studied was J. Sebastian Bach. Mrs. Gibson, Miss Sara Hofman and Miss Alice Gibson gave numbers from that great musical genius. Miss Mary Poage was awarded the prize in the contest. Engstrom Continued from Page A-l of the elementary grade levels -- and worked in administration - at many schools, located in Japan, Chicago, Florida, Mexico, Los Angeles, and of course in Mendocino County, where she has been employed by the Ukiah Unified School District for 34 years. Engstrom landed her first job with the district in 1970, when she was hired to teach at Nokomis School. She did this until 1981 and then became the principal at Hopland Elementary School. After 10 years there, she decided she needed a change. "So I went through the international schools' catalog; I just opened it up and started calling schools in Mexico because I'd always wanted to learn Spanish. I'd had a little high school Spanish, but that was it. So I called Torreon, a big city in Mexico," she said, noting over a million people live there and few have ever heard of it. "I talked to the superintendent, flew to New Orleans one weekend to meet him when he was at a conference there, and I was hired," Engstrom said. She said her job as principal at an American school in Torreon was a "very, very wonderful learning experience ~ and she even learned "serviceable" Spanish while there. "I enjoyed Mexico immensely. If I was younger, I might have stayed, but I was getting close to retirement and I was on a three-year leave of absence with the district," she said. After returning from Mexico, Engstrom went to Frank Zeek School Principal Naomi Engstrom has announced that she will retire at the end of the school year. work as principal at Frank Zeek School and has been there ever since. "I think these last 10 years (at Frank Zeek) have been the highlight of my career. Frank Zeek School is a fabulous school and it's been a wonderful experience," she said. "It makes me proud to be associated with everyone here. We have no discipline problems; we have a nice beautiful school and everything is swell. I am going to go out while I'm on top," Engstrom said. Frank Zeek School was on top when it came to the 2003 Academic Performance Index scores, which were released last week. The elementary school scored higher than all other elementary schools, including charters, in the Ukiah Valley area. "I remember so fondly every group I have taught," Engstrom said, noting when she sees people in town sometimes she recognizes them as former students. For those she doesn't recognize, Engstrom said, she wishes they'd come up and tell her "I'm so and so." Hidalgo •|a:BO.
