Dr. Calvin S. White Refuses
to Shoot "Mad" Dog.
Poor tittle Terrier Kound Tethered
by Heavy Rope in Boiling; Sua
When Guardian of Health Answer
(CpHERE is a mad, dog out here
X which is terrorizing the coun
try," was the information which came
over the telephone Friday to Dr. Cal
vin S. White in a woman's voice. The
voice further informed the physician
that the police had been notified an
hour previously but that no member of
the force had made his appearance. Fur
ther remarks relative to the efficiency
of the police bureau followed.
After Dr. White had learned that the
mad dog was on College street, between
Eleventh and Twelfth, he procured a
revolver and, borrowing an automobile
from a friend, drove in search of the
rabid canine. After some inquiry he
found the lair of tho animal, and, with
his gatling gun ready, approached
where it was hidden behind a fence.
The shot, however, which was to send
the bloodthirsty animal into eternity
was never fired. Dr. AVhite found a
dog of the terrier breed lying tethered
by a huge rope about as thick as a
man's thumb. The dog was about a
foot long and was far from being the
huge, infuriated creature which his in
formant had led the guardian of the
public health of expect.
"The dog was panting as a result
of the hot sun in which he was tied
and this probably had led to the belief
that be was mad," said Dr. White.
