    FOUND WITH HUMAN BONES
    A Relic of Jose Estrada From Santa Marguerita Ranch.

SAN JOSE. Cal., April 23.— Mrs. Murphy-Colombet of this city has received a souvenir of her family, the Estradas, from the Santa Marguerita ranch. It is an old silver spoon, on the back of which is engraved:"Jose Estrada, December 19, 1777."

The relic was found by workmen engaged in digging under an old church on the ranch. The spoon was found in a box containing human bones, probably those of Jose Estrada. Mrs. Murphy-Cclombet will send the spoon to the Estrada family in Mexico.
