The sad intelligence of the death of D.G. Rorick was received from San Bernardino yesterday. Mr. Rorick who was conductor of the San Jacinto train, left his post of duty just a week ago yesterday, and in company with his wife went to Arrowhead to recuperate, being in ill-health. He seemed threated with pneumonia, but word has been received that he died at about 5 o’clock yesterday morning of neuralgia of the brain. Mr. Rorick was of a genial disposition and kindly heart, and it seems almost incredible that one who appeared so strong and well but a week ago should be thus suddenly stricken down. Mr. Rorick has been connected with the San Jacinto run for a great many years. He leaves a wife to mourn his untimely taking off. The funeral will take place in San Bernardino.
