(From a Staff Correspondent.) Lincoln, March 24. (Special.) The appearance of mad dogs in several parts of the state before the usual time has caused the state department of health to issue a bulletin calling attention to the condition. It offers the following instructions and infor mation regarding the disease: 1. The treatment is entirely of a preventive nature. There is no hope after the disease begins to maifest itself. 2. The department is very crowded with work, still each examination re quires the greater part of a day, there fore we cannot make very many. 3. The people of the state are striv ing to conserve, food and we cannot see where anything is to be gained by feeding the enormous number of worthless dogs. 4. The cost of the preventive treat ment is considerable. 5. This disease has been reported around Lincoln and we have heard of several dogs having been killed in Lincoln because of suspected rabies. It has been reported that a mad dog outside of Omaha bit several animals and caused other damage. We would therefore ask the people of the state, particularly in cities around which this disease has already shown itself, that they destroy worth less dogs.
