Denison, Tex., Feb. 11.—A horse
affected with rabies creating no little
excitement this morning in northwest
Denison. The animal was the prop-
erty of L. Dickinson, a groceryman
residing at 820 West Sears street. It
had been sick several days, but the
character of the disease was not
known. Early this irxornuw it acted
very strangely and was turned out of
the stable into the barn lot. Later in
the day it was deemed advisable to
fasten it up in the bam. Just before
noon a great noise was heard out at
the lot by the Dickinson family, as
well as by all the neighbors,

After breaking out of the barn and
jumping over a division fence it rushed
into the rear of the residence on the
adjoining lot, and another wild scene
followed. "1 he house is occupied by
Mr. and Mrs. Will Bailey, and the lat-
ter was in the kitchen preparing din-
ner. Her small child was sitting in
an armchair, and a hot fire was in the
stove whv_n the infuriated animal
plunged in. The lady grabbed her
baby and' sprang into an adjoining
room just in time to escape instant
T he hot stove was kicked or knocked
over and broken into dozens of pieces,
scattering the fire all over the room.
The dining-room table, on which were
a quantity of dishes and cooking uten-
sils, was literally wrecked. By this
time a large crowd had gathered, and

I find on examination that the fees

will average more than $7-5° per case.
During the year there were about eight
hundred paying cases. At an average
of $7 50 per case this would make the
fees alone for the year $6000. Add
to this the salaries the officers get now
in addition to fees, and $1.00 per case
fines, the amount paid city officials,
outside of street hands, will amount to
$10,020. Now under the fee system
the mayor’s court only places in the
city treasury about $1000 to $1200
per annum from fines, while the pres-
ent salaries paid city officials outside
of the fees, and street hands, amount to
