Yocum of South Danville while crossing the River Bridge yesterday morning met with a great scare caused by what was probably a a log. The Story As told a news reporter by the husband of the woman is substantially As follows mrs.

Yocum who ran in the direction of South Dan Vil be hut snapping right and left he trotted Oil toward this end of the Bridge. Whether the dog was mad or not might of course admit of some doubt hut that mrs. Yocum had cause for alarm is beyond question. Her experience has caused uneasiness not Only in South Danville where the residents have occasion to Cross the Bridge almost daily but also on this Side of the River where it seems the dog has taken Refuge. Mrs. Yocum As is natural owing to her fright is Able to give no More than a general description of the dog which might apply to a bundled other canines.
