After a little expert fencing Mr. Brown suc ceeded iu downing the irritated brute. He ran the prongs of his weapon through the clog and pinion ed it to the ground. Seizing an ax he literally cut the worthless dog in to shreds, thus putting out of existence a dangerous, snarling cur. However, Mr. Brown did not escape injury; for after the dog had snapped its last snap, he realized that the canine had lacerated both thumbs, the sharp teeth having pen etrated the gloves which he wore at the time. The wounds were cau terized an<l Mr. Brown does not fear any after effects as regards hydro phobia, etc. Oak farm.
