Harrisburg, Ill, Oct, 4. A large mad dog passed through this city last evening, snapping everything in its way. Passing the little child of Post-master Reynolds on the sidewalk, it tore nearly al the clothes off the girl, but fortunately did not bite her. Samul Hines's little girl and a small negro boy were each bitten on the arm. Others were snapped at. A dozen or more dogs were bitten and a colt belonging to Edward Etricklin was bitten. City Marshal Keorner killed the dog and the mayor has issued a proclamation requiring all dogs to be muzzled. The children are to be taken to Chicago to have the mad stone applied.
