An Omaha Madstone.
Two anxious looking men rang

of a madstone, and believed thev

John Weir and Frank Davis, both of
Nebraska Cit and they were twoof
the three men bitten by the mail
dog that ran at large in the streets
of that city Monday. The call was
answered bv Lee L. llenbow, whose
madstone has been the Mecca for
many a pilgrim from afar.
The wounds on the hand of Mr'
Weir were deep and ugly looking
being four in number. According
tt) Mr. Weirs statement the dog met
him in the street, sprang upon him.

After repeated trials Mr. Henbow,
who has had considerable exper

there was no hydrophobia in the
wounds of the bitten men. The
wounds had been cauterized soon
after they had been inllictsd.

men from Nebraska Cit v, and they
returned to their home last evening.
The mad-stone in the possession
of Mr. Henbow is a sort of heirloom.
It was given to his great grand
father bv the Indians in Ohio 1UO
years ago ami has come down
through the family to its present
owner, it has cured several serious
cases, and hydrophobia has never
appeared in a single instance where
