A man named Moore was bitten some time last fall by a cur, supposed to be mad, but, in reality, suffering from the complaint known as the mad itch. Moore, who lives about a mile and a half from Indianapolis, became very uneasy, went to Terre Haute, and had Mrs. Taylor’s mad stone applied. He was discharged after one or two applications; but the fear of hydrophobia so preyed upon his mind that he had no rest. Last Friday he died, exhibiting a singular state of nervous disorganization for some time prior to his death. The Benton Tribune, Oxford, Indiana. January 16, 1866.
