Adolph Adler in Trouble

Last Saturday night the attention of the neighbors was attracted to the Adler home near the race track by the screams of Mrs. Adler. Her father, N. J. McCumsey, the mail carrier on rural free route No. 1, was the first to arrive on the scene, and found Adler choking and otherwise abusing his wife. Grabbing the first thing handy, presumably a piece of wood, Mr. McCumsey felled him to the ground, where he lay stunned for a few moments. On coming to he knocked his father-in-law down and began to use his feet on him. Horace Bigelow here interfered and compelled Adler to desist from his avowed intention of killing Mr. McCumsey. The officers were notified and Adler was promptly locked up in jail. He was taken to Justice Knighton’s court at Diamond Springs Tuesday morning on a warrant charging him with an assault with intent to commit murder and his preliminary hearing was set for 2 o’clock Wednesday afternoon.


Pleasure Trip of Inspection

In a run up to Lake Valley this week, Under Sheriff Hand met and had quite an interview with E. J. “Lucky” Baldwin, the enterprising proprietor of Tallac House. Mr. Hand informs us that Baldwin is planning the construction, in the near future, of a hotel in connection with the Tallac that will cost no less than a million dollars. He proposes to make it one of the most attractive and charming resorts in the world. And what Lucky Baldwin undertakes he is very likely to accomplish.
