Dogs Chew Young Colt To Death
Luverne- A vicious attack by dogs proved fatal to a three months old colt on the F. J. Schulte farm in Clinton township last week. Mr. and Mrs. Schulte discovered the dead colt when they arose in the morning. It had been badly bitten and chewed around the legs but the most severe wounds were on the throat. The colt apparently bled to death after the attack. Several nights previous, dogs made an unsuccessful attempt to get into his herd of sheep, Mr. Schulte said. Future invasions of this kind, he promised, would be met with gunfire. The viciousness of the dogs is shown by the fact that they seldom make an attack on any kind of horse.

Mrs. I. O. Tyler, of Beaver Creek, Rock county, Minn., desires to know the whereabouts of her husband, I. O. Tyler. He started for Oklahoma the last of July, in company with one George Bacon, who had been there two years ago and made some improvements, and was driven off last spring and was going back to wait for congress to act. Tyler was traveling with a team. He is a man 55 years old, about five feet nine inches tall, with gray hair, gray chin whiskers and mustache. Any one who can furnish Mrs. Tyler with any information, will confer a great favor upon her.
