Protection from Rabies.
"Avoid strange dogs, but if
approached by a dog dripping
saliva from his jaws stand per
fectly still, since rabid dogs do
not notice still objects," says Dr.
B. T. Simms, veterinarian at the
Oregon Agricultural College.
"Animals bitten by rabid dogs
should either be killed or given
the pasteur treatment If dogs
are bitten by other dogs suspect
ed of being rabid. They should
be closely confined and watched
for sixty days. Sick cata, espec
ially those having fits, should be
avoided. Every person bitten
by rabid dogs should take the
pasteur treatment, which can be
had in nearly every hospital. If
the dog is suspected of being
rabid, shut it up and watch it
closely for symptoms, which will
develop in six to ten days. The
wound made by a suspected dog
should be cauterized at once with
nitric acid or carbolic acid. The
suspected dog should not be killed
until its infection is proved or
disproved. If rabid its head
should be packed in ice and sent
to the State Board of Health ut
The several celebrations throu
ghout the county on the 4th were
a success in every particular.
In Burns there was a larger
crowd than had been expected
and those present enjoyed the
program in its entirety. There
were horse races at the fair
grounds on Friday afternoon, also
an auto race that proved quite
The forenoon exercises at Tona
wama were of a character that
appealed to those who attended.
The parade didn't come up to
former efforts of the kind as there
were but few decorated autos in
line. The committee offered very
liberal prizes for decorated cars
but the auto owners were too
busy or lazy. The parade was
quite interesting, especially one
float drawn by two burros that
represented a Ford car and in
which three pretty little girls
were placed. It attracted much
attention. The band music was
proved very amusing if not ex
citing, although there were a few
good plays. The married men
were up against it in the first
inning as their pitcher proved an
easy mark for the boys who bat
ted him all- over the pasture but
they got Hans Nelson and he
turned the tables on the boys
and had he been able to finish in
the box it is quite evident the
score would have been kept down
to a very respectable figure, but
as he gave out the single fellows
again made several runs the final
footings being 16 to 15 in favor
of the married men.
The sports on the street at 7
o'clock were spoke of as the best
ever pulled of in Burns. The
committee had arranged for a
large number of contests but the
ball game kept the crowd at the
grounds until such a late hour
that the street sports had to be
postponed until after the supper
hour, thus it was too late to give

M. A. Biggs acted as president
of the day and presided at the
exercises at the hall. Rev.
Iauree of the Baptist church
offered an invocation, the orches
tra of little violin players under
the leadership of Mrs. Dodge
was a pleasing feature and the
chorus choir rendered two Na
tional airs. The oration by Rev.
Dr. Benson was one of the finest
heard in this city for many years.
He did not follow the usual style
of such occasions but gave a most
inspiring talk on present condi
tions, giving credit to those who
deserve it without any partisan
color and in fact made a most
favorable impression upon the
large audience that listened to
him. At the conclusion of the
oration Capt. A. W. Gowan, who
acted as marshal and lead the
parade, proposed three cheers
which were given by all present.
The base ball game in the after
noon became tiresome before the
nine innings were completed. It

that he was too fat.
