The fine roan mare of M. S. Hurt died Saturday night. A bite received from a mad dog six months ago was the cause of her death. The animal had never shown any simptoms of rabies until a few days back when she was noticed chasing the cattle and biting everything in her reach. Mr. Hurt has lost near two hundred dollars worth of property in the last few months on account of worthless dogs. - Lebanon News.
