The "Mad Dog Scare' whjcl) exist,
ed for a phort time in the village last,
week, and the opinions expressed foy
a number of persons as to^ what*
should be done under the clrcum»
stances to the dog, makes it an op
portune time for the Board of Health,
to give some advice to the public on:
1st." To prevent all trouble 'from
"mad dogs'," the best way would be
to compel the owners of dogs run
ning on the streets or at large, to
muzzle them, under penalty of pound
and fine, or slaughter on sight.
2nd. If a dog is found running at
large, acting strangely and suspected'
of being "mad," if possible catch and
confine him in a comfortable. place,
where he can be watched for a few
days when the character of the dis
ease will be developed if he has any.
Some riiay thiiik this a strange way
of treating an animal supposed to
be "mad," but the reason is this: The
probabilities are altogether against
the dog being "mad," but if he is, a
few days will tell the stoiy." Sup
pose a person1 is bitten by such a .dog
and the dog is killed. The person
always, or at least for a long time
in worry of his life, fearing that H.v
drophybia will develop in his system
and nothing can or will quiet him or
•make him feel safe. On the other
hand if the dog is kept alive and
watched, and in a large number of
cases is found to be only sick and
haruslass, you can imagine the relief
o, clie person bitteif, when he can be
assured that he is safe from all dan
eroue results of the bite, or if the an
imal is found to be mad, then the
perso» is no worse off than if the an
imal had been killed but can at once
take advantage.of "Pasteur's treat
ment," the only way of relief from
In the future, the Board of Health
trusts that there will be at least an
attempt to capture a suspected mad
dog", especially if he is known to
have bitten anyone, rather than at
once set up the cry of "shoot him'
"shoot him" "he is mad!" "A' word
to the wise" ought to be sufficient

EDITOR- ADVANCE: I notice in an
issue of your paper under date of Ju
ly 4th a communication from M. E
Foley in which the burden of his
"tale of woe" seems to be, that at the
time my horses were killed in July
1892. I made a false affidavit ~as to
the cause of their death.
While I|am aware that any public
communication over his signature
will be given little credence, especial
ly in communities where he and his
business methods are known, yet
desire to say a few words, in expla
On July 14th, 1892, we had a' very
bad wind and rain
storm. At that time
I had my live stock insured in the St,
Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co
During the storm two of my horses
were killed by being Blown into' a
barb wire fefice, as I believed then
and stfll believe. While I did not
actually see them blown into the
fence, all the circumstances plainly
indicated that'such was the case,
immediately afterwards notified the
company at St. Paul of my loss.
After waiting some time and receiv
response, I notified Mr. Foley,
their agent at Adrian, and on Aug
ust 9th, 1892 he came to my place to
adjust, and he did adjust my loss.
At that time I made my statement
to him in substance as I have made
it here, and that horrible affidavit
for" the execution of whieh Foley
would have me languish in a felon's
cell, simply contained a true state
ment as I believe, of the manner and
cause, of the death of those two hor
ses Mr. Foley, was satisfied' with
the proof-at the time as is evidenced
"the fact that he adjusted my loss
at $200, but afterwards, for reasons
only known to the Good Lord* and
Foley, backed square out of his ad
ustmeht. it remains in that condi
tion today and I have never received
one cent for my loss.
Mi'." Foley also says that when he
came to my place to investigate the
loss, that .I told him-the horses had
been buried. I never told him any
thing'of the kind but on the other
hand* told him they had not been
buried and asked him to'go with me
and See them and lie replied that it
wa^ not necessary. The-, horses, in
fact, have never been buried and
their bones lay bleaching on the
prairie today as a monument to. the
honesty and integrity-, of M. E. Foley•
One very peculiar thing about the
whole transaction was that he did

In Your Line,
True as Steel.
Some years ago in a Wisconsin
town, a certain merchant obtained
judgment against a farmer and de
sired the prestige to issue execution,
but stated that he supposed it would
be futile to levy inasmuch as the:
judgment debtor was a brother of
the sheriff. The* justice replied,
"Never you mind our sheriff wUl do
his duty." The writ was made out
and handed to the sheriff. Toward
evening the sheriff arrived in town
driving three cows, which he had lev
ied upon out of his brother's estate,
after all attempts at averting the un
unpleasant duty had failed. Bqt it
was noticed a tear trickled down the
hardy features of the sheriff as he
put the cows up for the night. The
next morning the brother came to
town and redeemed his property,
having concluded that "discretion
was the better part of valor." Upon
examination of the return on the writ
it was found that the sheriff's fees
and mileage had been waived—a sav
ing of about $10.00.
The sheriff had gone nearly 40
.miles and saved his brother consid
erable rftoney but he did his duty.
