- Messrs. Saxon & Blood exhibited in this city last Friday and Saturday, a pair of elk, a buffalo, a deer, a beaver, prairie dogs, prairie chickens, wild geese, and a swift. They captured these animals while they resided in Greeley county, Nebraska, and are just starting out on a long journey with them, intending to pass through Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and thence to Warren county, New York, the former home of Mr. Saxon.
