The demented animal was frothing at the mouth, with bulg ing eyes that could have been rubbed off with sticks, and had almost reached the two men, when they observed its peculiar actions. Had the dog not been staggering, both would grobablyhave been bitten, but Mr. Hafner managed to climb up on a barn roof, while West ran to the house and secured a gun with which the animal was Bhot. The dog approached from Chastain Addition and may have bitten other dogs or animals before noticed. There is no doubt but that the dog had the rabies and such animals as may have been bitten should be looked after until the danger period is passed. DIED AT BEAUMONT. J. R.

For now she rides on air-shod wheels, in skirts too short by half; no lambkin shares her airy flight, but you can see her calf. But who is there that can complain, or cry in woe, “Alas!” So long as Mary’s calf’s alright, the lamb can go to grass.
