George Davis, a three-year old boy, was bitten by a dog owned by Robert Donnellen of Lowell, Mass., at Hampton Beach a few days ago. A party of bathers were trying to make the dog go into the ocean and he, evidently not finding the water to his satisfaction, bit the boy in the leg. Dr. A. S. Mangurian of Manchester, who was spending his vacation at the Beach, was called and he treated the boy, preventing hydrophobia. Master Davis makes his home with his grandmother in Derry.

Recently Thomas L. Perkins had as a dinner guest Capt. Howard, U.S. Navy, the man who fired the first shot in the battle of Manilla. At the table Capt. Howard told the following interesting story. During the battle a six-inch shell hit his ship and exploded in a room about twice the size of Mr. Perkins' dining room, where twelve men were serving one of our guns, and did not hit a single person. It seems almost impossible for a shell to explode in a room of that size, containing twelve men, and not hit one, but such is the fact.
