Three dogs reported to be mad, (hydrophobia) were killed in East Florence last Friday afternoon. On the same evening a little dog, after a fearful struggle, died in one of the rooms of the White building, where The Times is located. The latter died from poison, and it is quite likely that was the trouble with the East Florence dogs.
