liesides the now famous new-born
baby elephant, the only one ever bred
and born in captivity, the Sells- Flo to
Circus has what you might call a
whole flock of babies with it this year.
Of course, every self-respecting show
must have a baby, but it is not often
that the visito rto the menagerie finds
as many as five little tigers, six baby
lions, three small bears, a juvenile
camel, and last but not least a babv
zebu, the first probably ever seen in a
menagerie in this country. Added to
these is a baby hi'ppotatmis, also three
baby elephants, the oldest of which is
but 17 months old. Of this won
derful collection the baby zebu will,
no doubt, attract the greater portion
of attention by reason of its rareity.
The zebus attain their gicatest de
velopment in India, but the breed is
found eastward to Japan and west
ward to the Nigre. All the sculptors
of Elephanta, which am of th highest
antiquity, represent these cattle. They
are used in many parts of India as
beasts of burden, and occasionally for
riding, being venerated by the Hin
doos, who consider it a si :i to .slaugh
