A colt was mardfened on- a newly

around Prospect Park for several days.
It attacked Beveral children and dogs,
but in most cases was beaten oft. Hol
er Fredrickson, of 117 Seymour, was
bitten while protecting a younger child
from an attack. Gertrude Everts of 79
Clarence avenue and Frank Lee. a lad
of 12, living at St. Anthony Park were
bitten by a cat presumably the same
one which attacked Holger. It is be
lieved that the cat has bitten .several
dogs as she wandered about- in itnat
neighborhood for at least three days be
fore being killed by boys.
Dr. Corbett says that Minneapolis ap-
ent, ana heartily wishes that the dogs
in the city could be exterminated.
There is considerable alarm in the .citv
over mad dog scares, w&ieh are of al
most daily occurrence and the poue
have been urged by several citizens, .to
take some extreme measures to rid the
city of the danger. Alltne aatfcorlty
the police have at present is to pick up
the unlicensed dogs and take them to
the pound where they are Killed tf not
claimed by the ownera and licenses
paid. Only about 2Qp have been killed,
while about 4,000 have b.een licensed.
As the latter are permitted to run at
large, the health officials feel they may
become a source of danger at any time.
It has ben represented to the board
of charities and corrections that the
parents of the Fredrickson boy have not
the means to send him to Chicago, and
if this proves to be the ease, Superin
tendent W. P. Barton will supply the
railway transportation, which, is as far
as he is allowed to go.

Judge Dickinson granted the village
council, thru its counsel, John Land, a

The village of Deephaven asks a per

days. The street railway company will
also contend that the trolley is a rail
road. Breaches of faith are alleged on
both sides and each asserts that it has
the law wholly on its side.
An official of the street railway com
pany asserted today that he was not
worrying because of the trouble with
the village and that if any serious
trouble should grow out of the dispute
the line might be abandoned altogether

During the sale no remodeling of the store can progress. There-
fore it has been arranged for the contractors to take charge August 1.
In this connection it may be stated that a store like Hoffman's Tog-
gery shop, dealing in tne HHHXBST GRADES OF GENTLEMEN'S
FURNISHING GOODS, must BUT IN ADVANCE, as goods must be
manufactured. Last fall purchases were made for this summer and
next fall. One bill of goods, amount $47,000, was for AUGUST
FIRST DELIVERY. These goods were in course of completion at
the factory, and Mr. Hoffman, realizing that his remodeli ng must be-
gin August 1st, hai been able to secure the DELIVERY OF THE
GOODS JULY FIRST. At that time they can be disposed of, and
owing to the inconveniences occasioned by the fire, THE MANUFAC-
TURERS HAVE CONSENTED TO PERMIT THESE GOODS TOv
BE SOLD AT COST PRICES, PLUS THE EXPENSE TO MR. HOFF-
MAN, WHICH WILL BE ABOUT 10 PER CENT.
A store, such as Hoffman's Toggery Shop, deals only in the HIGH-
EST CLASS of furnishing goods, such as Stetson shoes, Roelofs' hats,
Youmans' hats and imported fine woolens. On all these lines of special-
ties, CONTROLLED BY THE MANUFACTURERS, are prices that
are standard and MADE BY THE MAKERS OF THE GOODS. Here
again the manufacturer has been liberal to Mr. Hoffman and agreed
to permit him to sell all these lines at cost prices, plus 10 per cent for
the expense of turning them over to customers.Act n.
