Rosita Index 3-4-1886 For the benefit of some
people who do not seem to understand that this paper is the successor of
the Sierra Journal, we make the following statement: The Rosita Index was
established by Charles Baker in this place in 1875; was purchased in 1880
by Charles A. Johnson and the name of the paper changed to the Sierra
Journal; from 1880 to 1886 the paper under different owners retained that
name. The present owners purchased the paper after the first issue in 1886,
and returned to the name under which the paper was founded. The Index is
now in its eleventh volume and has never missed an issue.
