PROBABLE HYDROPHOBIA --- Herbert CODDINGTON, of Flushing, was bitten by a
spitz dog about 2 weeks ago, and for a week has been confined to his bed.
The leg which was bitten began to swell. Yesterday he became so violent
that several neighbors were called in to help take care of him, and 4 men
were needed to hold him in bed.
MISSING FROM HIS HOME.--- Charles W. BUDINGTON of Canoe Place, is missing
from his home. He was arrested for selling liquor to a minor, and was to
have been tried on Monday last, but he secured so adjournment from Justice
GRIFFIN. Immediately two complaints for violation of the Excise law were
made before Justice LUDLOW at Bridgehampton, and it is thought that
BUDINGTON has gone to escape being sent to jail.

Central Railroad track, at Island Trees, near Hicksville at 5 o'clock
yesterday afternoon. The body was that of a man about 28 years of age, 5
feet inches high, with light hair and imperial, and sandy completion, A
pistol lay on the ground by the man's leg. There was blood on the face and
a wound in the mouth through which the bullet had passed and lodged in the
brain. An examination of the clothing by the Coroner revealed a number of
cards bearing the name of Ernest RIENSCH. In the coat pocket was found a
certificate showing that the deceased was an active member of this 9th
Regiment, 2d Battery, Schleswig Leil Artillery, of the German Army.
