Died in Agony.

A Rome Tribune special says: A pitiful story of death by hydrophobia comes from Livingston, a village ten miles form Rome. C. F. Stephens, who was in town today, told the tale. His little daughter Florida, only three years old, is the victim of a terrible malady. About six weeks ago his little daughter was playing in the yard with a small dog, of which the child was very fond. Suddenly there was a scream and it was found that the dog had bitten the child, and the dog was afterwards killed and the wound on the child’s face healed and it was thought that all danger was over, but today she was taken suddenly sick, began foaming at the mouth and making feeble attempts to bite. In terrible agony she soon died and the Doctor pronounced the case hydrophobia.
