DOG, APPARENTLY MAD, RUNS WILD

Considerable excitement was caused yesterday when a large black hound, apparently suffering from rabies, rushed through the lower end of Chester, snapping at everything in its path. Two valuable rabbit dogs, owned by Otto Smith, were attacked by the strange canine, and it is said that several dogs in Newell were bitten by the animal which was finally shot near the Finley Brothers’ building, as it was coming back toward Chester.

On account of the numerous dogs said to have been attacked by the mad animal, the officials have notified the local residents to tie up all dogs. There is an ordinance prohibiting canines from running at large, and will be enforced during the hot weather, especially.
