i 'ronr Granid Prairie doines the tale
of the capture of a strange and'-a'
known animat. Francois- Dronet, last
Montday morning while looking affdr
stock saw ati animal aboiut the size of a
lhrge dog following the cattle. On ap- -
proaching it started to runa and he gave e
chase and after driving it near his house c
succeeded in lassoing it. No one who has
seen the animal has bieen able to prop- r
erly class it among the-known beasts.
It is described as being about the size
of a large dog, with'fur resembling very
much that of a wild: cat, th ' shape of
the head: is' Very' much' like that of a
hog, having short tusks, but the ears
are small and pointed, the legs are
slender and cleaned' limbed like those
of a deer, while the' hoofs are not like e
those of the deer but split like a hog's.
It has a very short tail like a rabbit
and'runsmwith'a series of leaps, andgets' e
over ground rapidly. Captivity does
not appear to render it vicious and it is
evident from a stout ring in its nose a
that the animal has been partially
tamed. It is very fond of green corn.

ebgineer of the-Southern Pacific Rail
road, arrived id towd.f Having r'ade a
preliminary inspection6bf the roUfe from
here' to New Iberia.
At a meeting of'tlhe itizend held that'
evid&ing the genttebhi tated thl they
had every reason, to believe that if the,
people of Abbeville would secure the :
right of way, depot grounds and levy a
5mnill tax for ten years the Southern
Pacific would build a branch here. It

An exchange says, a little over a year
_ago four young men in Casey county,
' Ky., were' bittel r by a rabid dog. Two'
fof the mnen were named Hofley; the
j others were a Mr. Cook and a Mr.
r Dever. One of- th'e .ifbfley brothers l
and Dever triad the virtue of a mad
stone` and so far are all right. The
other Hofley and Cook had no faith in
the remedy, refasi to have anything
Sto do with the mad-stone. The othrj
morning the two latter were seized wtlith
frightful con'Vulsions,.. and it took b.e
liss than"eight men to hold eacir' one
of the suffering men. . They had every
symptom of hydrophobia, . even the pe
cul.ar haik of the dog. Death kindly
relieved their sufferings. Thee sakl af

the' neighboelbbdd' and pebpleh c'ame
