Calhoun Chronicle dated 7/19/1910.
Sunday, while all was quiet in our little city a big black dog came
romping into main street, and proceeded to "clean up" every member of the
canine family he came across After raising quite a bit of excitement
he was eagerly pursued by almost every male citizen in town, who were armed
with rakes, mops, brooms, rocks and guns, and after an exciting chase,
was killed by Charley Starcher. No one knows who the dog belonged
to, nor where he came from, but one thing sure, he was mad. He bit
dogs belonging to Dr. Pickering, Jerome Hardman and Sheridan Stump, and
maybe others. The dogs bitten were promptly killed today (Monday).
If any one knows who the dog belonged to, or where he came from, it would
be advisable to notify Mayor Stump at once, as it may be that he has bitten
some person during his rage.
