   While Charley Strait was out hunting not long ago, a serious trouble arose. His dogs (tow in number) struck the track as he supposed of a coon, and after two or three hours rambling through the woods and over rocks treed the animal up a large oak tree near No. 4 school house Benton township. Charley ascended the tree some forty or fifty feet so behold an animal which seemed to have eyes like balls of fire. The animal jumped at him, lost its balance and fell to the ground where two dogs were. The dogs both flew on the animal. Charley came down as quick as he could and found both dogs dead and the animal tearing them to pieces. His presence was soon noticed by the animal who now fell the mangled bodies of the dogs and sprang on him. A desperate fight scene with the help of a hatchet and a large hunting knife, he succeeded in killing the animal. An investigation showed that this animal was a huge wild cat that had been a terror to the neighborhood for some time. Charley weak!
 from loss of blood came home next morning and told the sad story. His brother John went and brought the animal to his home near Cedar Grove, where it was viewed by many. The hide of this animal will be kept and stuffed where it can be seen at any time.
