Harry Rumney had to kill his dog Monday. It seemed that the same dog that bit Ed Poole's cows followed Mr. Rumney to Odessa, about two weeks ago, and bit his dog while there, and about four days ago his dog showed symptoms of madness. The brothers Rumney chained him up for four days, but as he got worse and more dangerous they had to shoot him. It was a very valuable dog Harry brought with him from Minnesota.
