ATTACKED AND KILLED BY HOGS.

Atlantic, Ia., Jan. 9. - It was reported here last night that a man named FRED FOULK was attacked and killed by hogs yesterday in the heavy timber, about 15 miles northeast of Atlantic.
FOULK was hunting rabbits, and accidentally wounded one of the hogs, whose cries attracted several other animals, and they all attacked him and chewed him to death. The hogs had escaped from farmers living in that locality and were virtually wild. The surroundings betoken a hard fight.
