Individual account or by state appropria?

legislature, of Arkansas appropriated $lo,

state at Atlanta.
An Interesting concession was also made
Jost week to a party from the Rosebud In?

0?EI0U3 CASE OF RABIES.
Death of . Han Who Etiler] but tVas
Not Bitten by a Mad Dog.
There was an exciting experience with a
mad dog on tho form of .1. M. Fall, nine
miles cast of Albia, la., recently.
A largu dog broke into the stock pens
?tld bit ten head of steers, B0 head of hogs
ami two line horses. A hired man on tho
placo, Kreil Frey, procured a gun and went
out to kill the dog. When young Fred en?
tered tho pen. the brute mado a rush for
him;but, quickly Btepplngout and closing
tho pate. Prey placed the lUUZZlo of tin'
gun through ihu fence and shot tho il>^'
Two house cn!s were observed licking
tho blood of tbo dead dog, and within Jl
bours they died with the rabies. A few
days later young Prey attended church
With Fnll's family, and during tho serx
ices was taken violently sick, ami before
he could be taken home was a raving mil
nine. So violent was the young man ti nt
it required two strong men to hold bim
until n physician could bo summoned, lie
frothed at the mouth, went into the wild
est paroxysms at the sight of water and
Tittered shrieks and cries that resembled
the bark and snarl of u dog.
Thu phrj-iciuns pronounced ihu young
man suffering from an aggravated ea.su of
[hydrophobiaand beyond human help. The
next day be died in agony. The young
xnan was not bitten by the dog, was not
oven touched by the mail bruto, and the
attending physicians pronounced it the
Strangest COSS thai has ever come Under
their observation.?si. Louis Globe-Demo
A retrifled Dug.
A petrllied dog was washed out of ti e
bank of a stream on the Step Hock road.
South Norwalk, Conn., after ouo of the
xecent storms. In appearance it in of a
dark gray color and very bard. In life it
must have been an enormously lnrgu ani?
mal and is a species not recognizable by
any who have .seen it, but it is thought to
have been of the kind living with tho na?
tive occupants of that section prior to ROl
tlement by tbo whites. Hits of petrified
wood havo frequently been found in thai
Vicinity. Tho pet rilled dog has been placed
on the piazza of Mr. Torrouce's house and
looks lifelike.?Waterbury American.
