John Stephens Goes to Pasteur Hospital
John Stevens, son of George Stevens of Millburn is taking treatment at the Pasteur institute in Chicago.
A few days ago a cow suffering from hydrophobia created quite a little excitement and although John was not injured by the animal he decided to take no chance.
The cow belonged to a man named Hartleb, who resides on the Leo Fenlon farm in the neighborhood of the Warren cemetery, and when she began to cough and choke it was not even dreamed that she might be suffering from hydrophobia, but it was thought she was choking from something she had attempted to swallow. In an attempt to relieve her John pushed his hand into the animal's mouth and throat. Later the real trouble was discovered and as John had an open wound on his arm he decided that prompt treatment was advisable.
