Mail Tribune 100

Aug. 8, 1914

J.A. Rose and son Adrian of Griffin Creek, bitten by a mad dog 10days ago, left last night for Portland, where they will seek medical treatment. At the time they were bitten, they were not aware that their dog had rabies. After an examination, this was found to be the case. A week ago, six of the old dog's pups died. This aroused the suspicion of Mr. Rose, who sent one of the dead pups to the state bacteriologist, who pronounced death to be caused from rabies. Mr. Rose was bitten while feeding the mother dog, while Adrian was slightly nipped while teasing her. Neither were bitten seriously.

News of the War:

Indications that both British and French troops are hurrying to the assistance of the Belgians are given in French official dispatches today. The extent of the support is kept secret, as well as the route taken by the reinforcements.

French cavalry is said to have arrived at Liege, where masses of German troops are reported moving forward to support the strong advance guard, which was checked by the Belgians and, according to reports from Belgian sources, lost 23,000 men killed, wounded and prisoners. The German war office declares the German check not a defeat, but the result of an heroic attempt of a small German force to advance in face of difficulties.
