Ferocious “lions” turn out to be dogs

Toledo, Ohio – The “ferocious man-eating lions” that have been terrorizing the natives in the vicinity of Mt. Victory are two Airedale dogs, according to Louis Scherer, keeper of the Toledo Zoo, who returned after spending a day in the woods of Hardin County. He declared that the trail of the “beasts” ended when two Airedale dogs were found concealed in a thicket.

New depot

Oneonta needs a new depot. This matter was taken up some years ago and the war was made an excuse for delay, and we are still using a building that is far from satisfactory to the traveling public and those who have business with the L&N. The location of the station is bad – between two railroad tracks where a person is always in danger going to and from the trains. The people of Oneonta are entitled to better accommodations and should demand it.
