How He Humiliated the Champion Sport
of a Proud Michigan Town.
‘‘Talking about sports,” said a Goth­
amite to a Daily Kuiu man a few days
ago, “reminds me of an experience I
once had.' It occurred in Michigan,
and it happened several years ago. but
the boys haven't got through talking
about it yet. There was a great rivalry
between the town in which 1 resided and
one a few miles distant in all lines of
sport. In the athletic line I was con­
sidered the best, and so whenever any
running, jumping or wrestling event
was to come off 1 was tlie one to make
the trial against all comers. 1 had no
trouble iu defeating my opponents in a
majority of the events, and as a conse­
quence the sports o£ tin- neighboring
town lost heavily. It worried them
more than a little, and in order to get
even witli us they put up a job on us in
the following manner: While a man
who bad lost the most money by my
successes, a supporter of mine and my­
self were lounging about the only re­
sort in tlie town, a load of hay was
driven up in front of the plac e. A long,
lank specimen of humanity, dressed iu
a blue-cheeked shirt, overalls tucked in
his boots, and wearing on his head a
straw hat minus a crown, slid off tho
load and entered the store. Die new­
comer pretended to have a severe pain
in the region of his stomach, and sought
a remedv as au excuse to get into the
place. When lie came in Dan, the man
who had lost money by betting against
me. was handling a pair of thirteen-
pouud dumb-bells, which attracted the
attention of ttie farmer. Dan asked
him if he knew what they were, mid lie
sai l no. He was told they were used in
jumping, when the granger volunteered
the information that tie could beat his
paw jumpin’. Dan at once ottered to
bet the drinks that the farmer couldn't
beat any one < f tho three in
tho room. Hayseed objected, sav­
ing he didn't have lint ten vents. He
was forced into the trial, however;
despite his protests that if lie lost his
paw would lick lrm. mid in the contest
was beaten two feet by the poorest
jumper. Then he began to cry. Dan
wouldn’t let up on him mid asked him
if he could do any thing else in the way
of athletics. Through li s fear- he re­
plied that he could run when Dan of­
fered to bet twenty dollars against the
load of hay. which the farmer held at
the same price, that he couldn’t beat me
running one hundred and fifty yards.
Just then a liveryman came in and,
after giving us all a blowing-up for
abusing a green farmer boy, gave the
price asked tor the hay to the granger,
and went out. Dan snatched the money
out of his hand and told him that he’d
got to run, whether he wanted to or
not, and finally coaxed him to do so.
The report that a match had been made
spread through the usually quiet st reel
like wildfire, and it was not many min­
utes before several men from the ad­
joining town were eagerly taking all
the bets they could get, and they wa re
many, for my friends rallied around me,
and after a glance at the Hayseed read­
ily offered odds of four to one on my
success. The distance was measured ofl,
but when I went to the starting point
Hayseed was nowhere to be seen. Fi­
nally I discovered him sitting in a cor­
ner of a field some distance away, and
on getting to him found him blubbering
away at the loss of his money. Sud­
denly he checked himself, and, looking
up, asked if we would have a scratch
start. A greenhorn never would have
asked such a question, and then I knew
Dan had run in a ringer on us. While
I was thus thinking the farmer slipped
ofl’his suit of blue and displayed a beau­
tiful racing suit. We ran. and I was
beaten easily fifteen feet. The alleged
farmer I found out was McFaul, a noted
runner from Canada, who had been im-

“The day I shot my first elephant,”
i said an old British Indian, “willalways
be a red letter day in my sporting calen­
dar. It was in the Island of Ceylon,
that pearl of the Indian Ocean, lying at
the foot of the great peninsula of Hin­
dustan, tlie Lanka of tlie ancientsand
the Serendib of the days of Solomon
the Wise, ami sacred in the eyes of all
good Buddhists, for is it not there
where the tooth of the great god lies
upon the golden lotos leaf? Ceylon is
the paradise of sportsmon, tho beau
ideal of a perfect hunting country. All
kinds of game abound in the low coun­
try and the vast forests of tlie interior
of the island, from the lowly and wary
til ing snipe to the lordly elephant.
True, there are no tigers as in India,
Imt they have an equivalent in tlie
stealthy anil fierce cheetah, which, in
strength and cunning very nearly, if it
does not quite, approach tiie ‘Royal
“On the day in question Iliad started,
in company with a friend, from Trin-
comalee, tlie British naval station of
the island and perhaps the finest har­
bor in the world, and after driving
some forty miles into tho interior we
left tlie ‘bandy’ and made tracks into
the jungle. IVe were both armed witli
express rifles, which in my opinion
are. hy.fart'ie best weapons for elephant
shooting, and we were in hopes that
ere long we would come on the trail of
the ‘ani,’ nor were we disappointed,
for shortly our attention was drawn by
tlie native guides to the young bamboos
on tlie side of the path, which bore un­
mistakable signs that an elephant had
been feeding there,' Soon we came on
further evidence of his presence, and
on we wont, our eyes on the ground,
toiling through the jungle after tho ele­
phant. And, oh, the heat! And, oh,
the thirst! Every now and then we
had to halt and wipe the perspiration
from our brows, and send a native
•shinning’ up a cocoanut tree for one
of the young nuts, from which we
eagerly drank the milk. We were
hours toiling after that brute and
thought we would never como up to
him. At last the trail led right into a
sorf of oasis of pallia, or grass land, in
tho middle of which there was an
island of jungle. The trail went straight
into this,
so we
woro sure
that we had Sir Jumbo at last. My
friend Jack P. went round to one side
while 1 remained on the other, and
then we sent beaters in at each end to
drive tho elephant out. Suddenly I
heard a crackling of brushwood, then
a loud trumpet, and Jack’s voice
shouting that the elephant had turned
and was coming my wav. I remember
well wishing devoutly tiiat he had gone
in any other direction, but I liad not
much time for thinking, as in a minute
or so out came the huge brute. He
was a ‘rogue’ and a big one to boot. A
“rogue’ is an elephant that lias been
driven from the herd for some miscon-
luet or other, and lie is generally
‘mini,’ wandering about tlie country
alone and doing all the damage he can.
His hand is against every man and
every man’s hand is against him. A
‘rogue’ elephant is the only kind you
can shoot, as the elephants in herds are
very strictly preserved by tlie Ceylon
Government. Well, when this gentle­
man came out of the jungle he gazed
about him for a second or two, and
then, catching sight of me, raised his
trunk and gave a trumpet that would
have made tlie angel Gabriel green
with envy, and then charged right at
me. Now conies the difficult part of
elephant shooting. There is ontv one
vulnerable spot on a Ceylon elephant,
and that is a small oval spot, in
size only a few inches, just above
the trunk. You might fire a battery
of gatlings at any other spotand failto
bring him down, and once I counted
eighteen bullet marks in an elephant's
skull w' killed, and not one of which
had probably given him more than a
alight headache. When an elephant
charges he raises his trunk so that it
protects this vital spot, and trumpets
shrilly, hoping by this means, no doubt,
to scare the hunter. When lie is with­
in ten paces he lowers his trunx and at
the same time brings hhihead down,
after the manner of a bull when charg­
ing. Now is the time to fire. It is an
anxious moment, and for one who was
but a ‘Griffin’ at the game it was any
tiling but pleasant. There was no
friendiv tree near, and there was but
little chance of escape through the jun­
gle if 1 missed, as it would require a
knit for me to cut through tho thick
undergrowth, while the elephant could
go through it like nack-thread. On
came the elephant, the ground almost
slinking henealn nis ponderous ireau.
Would lie never lower that trunk? 1
stood with my rifle at the ‘present’ as
motionless as a statue, and, just as he
seemed to be right on me, down went
the trunk. Crack! went my rifle, aud
I had to spring back a pace or two to
prevent tlie huge beast from coming
right on top of me as he fell stone dead
at my feet. The reaction was
great., my highly strung nerves
giving way when the elephant
came down as if cut witli a knife, ami
the rille fell from my shaking hands.
I have learned better manners since.
Soon Jack came up and we had a regu­
lar war dance round the carcass. The
‘nigger’ was seut up the nearest cocoa-
nut and we quaffed a beaker to tne
pleasant passage of Jumbo’s soul to the
elephants’ heaven. Shooting au ele­
phant in a herd and shooting a rogue
elephant are two very different things.
In the first place, as I have said, you
are not allowed to shoot . a elephant in
a herd under a penalty of two hundred
and fifty dollars, the Government using
all they can catch for the Public Works
Department. This is as it should be,
for, before the law was established,
there was wholesale slaughter among
tlie noble beasts. It was nothing lint
•pot’ hunting, as the hunter would lie
iu wait where tlie herd went to water
and then pick them off at his leisure,
and, as Cey Ion elephants have no tusks
it was done in mere wantonness.
Major Rogers, of tlie Ceylon Rifles,
was a famous elephant shot in his day,
and lie was credited with having slain
with his own gun over twelve hundred
elephants. This 1 believe to be a well
authenticated fact. He once made a
bet that he would kill two elephants
with one shot. The way he did it was
to shoot the mother when tlie youn
elephant was suckling her, and the
mother falling on her young one
crushed it to death
“Elephants are caught in what are
known as kraals. They are, caught
either for use in the Public Works De­
partment, for service ia the native
temples, or for sale to some European
menagerie. When a kraal is to be
formed word is sent to the native head­
man of the village near where the
kraal is to be built, and he, in his turn,
sends out hundreds of beaters. When
the herd to be operated on is located
the beaters form a semi-circle and begin
driving the animal slowly toward the
kraal. At night they build watch tires,
and between them the native patrol,
armed with white wands, which are
quite sufficient to keep the elephants
from breaking through. They gradu­
ally work them up toward the kraal,
which is an open space in the jungle
with some stout trees growing within
it. It is surrounded by a strong stock­
ade arid has onlvva narrow entrahce.
Into this the herd is driven. The herd
is generally led by an old bull elephant,
and before any attempt to capture an
elephant is made this old gentleman
must be shot. When the Duke of Edin­
burgh visited the island a kraal was
gotten up for his especial benefit, and
H. R. II. entered the kraal to shoot the
bull, but ho missed and the bull very
nearly did away with young Guelph.
In fact he was right on him when a
timely shot, fired by a native sitting
up a tree and armed witli an old
Hint musket, brought the bull’s
career to an end. The bull got rid of,
the next thing to do is to send in two
tame elephants, witli their mahouts,
who single out the elephant to be capt­
ured, The tamo ones then ‘scuddie’
up, one on each side, and profess great
friendship for their wild companion,
gradually pressing him or her closer and
closer until they have him fast. Then a
native slips in underneath and quickly
makes ropes fast to the wild one’s legs,
and lie is dragged by the tame ele­
phants to the nearest tree, where, after
being thrown to the ground, lie is se­
curely bound and left there to starve
for two or three days. He is then quite
tame, and when lie rises up ho fj no
longer monarch of the forest but ele­
phant No. 999 of the Public Works De­
partment, or the great Jumbo of a trav­
eling circus.
“The sagacity of elephants is pro­
verbial, but few who have not person­
ally witnessed it can imagine how use­
ful they are to man in such places a«
Ceylon. Without their aid it would
have been impossible for tho Govern­
ment to have covered the island, as it
has done, with a splendid network of
roads and railways. In some places it
would have been impossible to have
transported machinery, and without
hoisting machinery the great blocks of
stone used in the foundations and but­
tresses of bridges could not hare been
moved—but here the elephant came
into play, and I have seen the
noble beast at work on tile
roads, moving a great block of
stone into position
, and standing
back and eyeing it, and then giving it
a gentle push, now on one side and now
on the other, until the stone was

rectly placed. An officer of tile de-
partnient told me that the most sa­
gacious tiling he ever knew an ele
pliant to do was on one occasion whim
they were unloading some steel piping
from a railway truck. The elephant’s
task was to carry the piping from be­
side the truck to a little farther up the
track. This lie did hv seizing the.
piping with his trunk. But it so hap­
pened that tlie piping had been oiled in
order to prevent it rusting, so that when
the elephant caught hold it slipped
from his grasp. Ho thought for a mo­
ment, and then his elephantine mind
solved the problem. Near the track
was a heap of sand; the animal kicked
the piping over to this with his foot,
and then rolled the piping backward
and forward in the sand. The oil made
the sand adhere, after which the elc-
pliant took th" piping up and marched
triumnhantlv off with it. Could a
unman being reason better? No won­
der the Government objects to such an
intelligent animal being indiscriminate­
ly slaughtered.
“Elephants are also in griait demand
in Ceylon for service in the Buddhist
temples. Every temple has at least
half a dozen attached to it, and in some
of the larger temples, such as the one
in Kandy, where the sacred tooth of
Buddha isdeposited, they have as many
as fifty. The largest num' er of ele­
phants I ever saw together was when
the Prince of Wales visited Kandy to
view Buddha’s tooth. They had a
grand procession, or Perahera. in which
over four hundred elephants took part.
It was a weird sight. It took place at
night and the rain came down in tor­
rents. Every elephant had an accom­
panying guard of about a dozen devil­
dancers, hideously painted, who danced
round waving torches and giving utter­
ance to the most unearthly snrieks,
while the Prince, arrayed in a gorgeous
uniform and surrounded by a brilliant
staff, stood on a balcony of the old
palace of the Kings o-f Kandy and
watched the antics of his mother’s ‘chil­
dren.’”— Chicago Herald.
