a biographer, "would make a good

the fact remains that he was certainly
an enormous man. It Is recorded of
him that he was very generous and

GIB, THE ELEPHANT.
How Bamum Once Changed His Mind
About What Hs Wanted.
When Mr. Bailey bended the old firm
of Uulley, Ilutcblnsou & Cooper, their
chief attraction was "Gib, the elephaut
with two trunks." Gib was a wonder,
the whole country was crazy to see
uiiu, and everywhere the Uulley,
Hutchinson & Cooper show spread its
tents they were crowded to their limit.
1'hlueuif T. llaruuui did not like the
tremendous success bis rivals were
having, railing lu his secretary, be
said la a thoughtful und puzzled way:
"Dan, did you ever see that Gib?"
"No; I never did see him," replied
"lias he really got two trunks?' ask
ed Mr. Bamum In a speculative man
ner. "Can't say for sure, but tbey keep on
saying be has good and loud."
"Dan," said Mr. Barnunr slowly,
"we've got to have that elephant"
And be reached for a telegraph blank
and sent the following message to Bai
ley. Hutchinson & Cooper:
Witt Rive you flO.000 for Gib, the ele
phant with two trunks.
P. T. BARNUM.
The next towns the Bailey. Hutchin
son & Cooper show visited were pla
carded up nnd down their streets wltb
posters reproducing Mr. Bnmum's tele
gram with photographic accuracy aud
under It this line:
"That's how much P. T. Barn urn
tbluks of the famous Gib, the only ele
phaut In the world with two trunks."
When Mr. Bnrnnm heard of It, he
meditated awhile In silence aud then
"Dan, It's not the elephant we want;
It's that man Bailey."
And thus was the 'great partnership
of Bamum & Bailey formed.
