**HELD UP -- The Castroville ‘Enterprise’ of Saturday the 10th inst says:
“As Sid ESPINOSA was coming to town last Saturday evening about dark, 2 men sprang up from the shadow of the fence near the grade at the foot of Preston street and ordered him to throw up his hands. A pistol was thrust in his face by the larger of the 2 men while the other rifled his pockets. They secured but $1.50 for their trouble. ESPONOSA is unable to identify the robbers any more than that one was a rather tall man wearing a full beard, while the other was a short, chunky fellow.”
**MYSTERIOUS SHOOTING -- The Watsonville ‘Register’ of Monday says:
“Sunday afternoon about 5 o’clock, Patrick FARREL, accompanied by another man whose name we did not learn, started on foot from Pajaro in the direction of Castroville, traveling on the railroad track. When about 4 miles from Pajaro and while walking leisurely along, 2 men were seen by FARREL to rise up in front of them and fire a charge from a shotgun. FARREL received the contents of the gun in the thigh, arms and hands. In turning around he saw his companion fall, FARREL then ran to Pajaro and notified Constable RILEY, who took the wounded man to the office of Dr. RODGERS, where the wounds were attended to, which were found to be quite serious. The officer accompanied by the doctor and several others, then left for the scene of the shooting and began to search for the man who was seen to fall, but he could not be found. Monday morning Constable RILEY, accompanied by Judge SMITH of Pajaro, again went to the scene of the shooting, but were unable to find out anything further.”
The officers do not take much stock in FARREL’s story of the shooting. He is a tramp and they think it likely that he received the contents of a shotgun while prowling around some farmer’s hen roost.
