Circuit Court to Decide Fate of Mrs. Moore's Bulldog

Carrollton - One of the cases before the circuit court which convenes next week will be that of the city of Carrollton against Mrs. William d. Moore appeal.

Mrs. Moore is the possessor of a large white bulldog with very pugnacious characteristics.  He was pronounced "vicious" in a magistrate's court here last fall and the owners were to pay a fine of $50 or to kill the dog.

The case was immediately appealed and "Jim's" trial for life will be finally decided by the circuit judge.
