DESPERATE FIGHT WITH A WOLF. The Daily News Odessa correspondent writes I saw this morning at the Odessa Bacteriological Hos- pital five peasants, just arrived from the district of Ismail, all of whom bad been bitten by a mad wolf. Among them was one apparently possessed of con- siderable bodily strength. He told me that a few days ago, in the grey of the early morning, he was in his little farmyard when something sprang on his back and off again. He turned instantly to find himself face to face with a large and angrv-look- ing wolf, crouching to spring again. The animal's head and jaws were bespattered with foam. It was evidently rabid, and, although instantly appre- hending this, the brave old man rushed Upon his assailant, thrust his left hand into the animal's mouth and seized its tongue, while with his right hand he endeavoured to strangle the brute A terrible struggle followed. The wolf's fangg met through the man's band, and held it like a vice. After nearly ten minutes' struggle the chances were going against the old man, who was suffering excru- ciating torture from the mangled tendons of his left arm. He now threw himself bodily upon the wolf, still struggling desperately, and for the first time called for assistance. Several neighbours harried to the spot and despatched the wolf, whose jaws never relaxed even in death. A file was brought and the wolf's lower jaw removed. The old man's left hand is in a dreadfully lacerated condition, but he is more or less torn all over the body. He informed me with a smile that it was the first time a sneaking dos of a wolf had proved a match for him, but he was not so young as he used to be, and had somehow lost the old grip. During the last twelve months 519 parsons have been treated at the Odessa BacterioWiVni 0tafion here on the Pasteur system. The patients have come from all parts of Russia, as well as from Ron mania, Servia, and Bulgaria." -ttoumania,
