Roy Parker Bitten by Hunting Dog

Was Cared For by Physician and No Bad Results are Feared

Roy Parker was severely bitten by a dog belonging to George Kehm (on) Eighth Avenue north and Eighth street last evening as he was walking past the Kehm residence. The wound inflicted by the animal’s teeth was so severe that it required the attention of a physician. It is thought, however that there will be no serious results from the bit, as the dog is known to be in a healthy condition.

The police were notified of the affair and the animal was to have been killed, but on the promise of the owners to keep him muzzled, they allowed it to live. The dog is a valuable one, being a thoroughbred hunter, and Mr. Kehm did not wish to lose him.

At the time he was bitten Parker was walking in the north end of the city and was approached by the animal from behind almost without warning the dog snapping him in the fleshy part of the calf. He will be lame for some time to come from the effect of the attack.

Newsboys to the Shows

Newsboys to the Shows

Carrier Boys of Messenger go Through The “White City” Last Night.

The newsboys of the Messenger office, about twenty-two in number, were treated to a visit to Parker’s White City last evening through the courtesy of the management. The boys first “took-in” the Eruption of Vesuvius show; next the Creation show and the Novelty theatre. At the proper time they all filed into the Bagdad tent and were shown to excellent seats in the reserved section. The performance of Bagdad was hugely enjoyed by all the boys present as was quite evident from the expressions on their faces. The boys say that McCabe, the Irish comedian made the greatest “hit” with them.

On account of the storm, it was impossible to continue on their rounds after the Bagdad show was over. It is needless to say that the boys appreciated the privelege of “going to the show” and they were not snow in expressing their opinions in the loudest terms.

The heat of yesterday did not seem to effect (sic) the evening business very much. The crowd was large and as the storm did not come up until the Bagdad performance was well over, everything went along very well.
