Two Score of ElephantsWith
theBarnum & Bailey Circus
llli! ySw ililll
No animal is so intimately and af
fectionately associated with the circus
as the elephant and probably none is
more sagacious. With the Bnrnum &
Itailey circus which comes hero Satur
day, September 9, ore over two score
of the ponderous creatures all in charge
of Harry J. Mooncy, tho famous Aus
tralian animal trainer.
To the uninitiated the huge slate
colored beasts look' the same. But
Mooney says that there are no two
Klephants arc useful as well as orna
mental in the menagerie world. If
ever a heavy wagon gets caught in a
quagmire and the horses fail to pull it
along, the only thing necessary is to
bring along an elephant.
"Just push, don't shove," runs the
coon song. That is what the elephant
does, and the wagon bowls along as if
a small-sized cyclone had struck it.
Strong elephants can easily push two
loaded freight cars. .
'For years,"- Mr. Mooney said, in a
recent interview, ''elephants have been
the Eastern man's best friend. They
liave been jacks of all trades, working
in timber and lumber fields, taking
part in big hunts" and forming the
backbone of state and ceremonial
processions. But now, aside from oc
casional hunts, all they seem to be
iiceded for is heavy hauling and pulling
the ploughs in the agricultural dis
tricts. In tho latter case, at least, it
has been found that the elephant
hasn't his peer, anil the native won't
even exchange for liim the modern
machinery. Why might not the same
prove true on- this continent! Think
of the great wheat fields in the West
and in Canada that the giant beasts
might help to till!
'The worth of the elephant has
never been fully appreciated by the
average American, nor even those who
delve into natural history. Porhups
that accounts for tho fact that his only
value here seems to be' for show pur
poses in circuses or zoological
To tho circus visitor the menagerie
means strange animals and thrills,
popcorn and peanuts. To the circus
company it mean3 something like $750,
000. This figuro, however, is by no
means arbitrary, for tho value of wild
beasts fluctuates remarkably. Today
tho value of a rhinoceros may be $10,
000 but let a few more rhinos be hauled
from their African lairs and be put on
the European market and the value
per animal may drop 50 per cent.
Another thing that affects tho valu
ation of wild animals is the question
as to whether they are acclimated or
"green." The mortality rate among
the latter animals fresh from the jun
glo is exceedingly high. Tho wild
animal that has demonstrated the fact
that it can live in a cage, particularly a
cage that hops, Bkips and jumps over
the country with a circus, has more
than tripled its value.
The Barnuin and Bailey zoo includes
four giraffes, rarest of captives wild
' animals. Giraffes were first brought
'in Amprw-a frnni ftnntti Arinu iri 1 tf.'tll
by ("apt. Clayton for the circus of
Welch, Macumber & Weeks, of which
he was manager and afterward part
owner. They did not long survive con
finement. Only two municipal zoos in
this country now own giraffes. The
circus beasts have especially fitted
quarters, are served individual food
and are never left alone, as two keep
ers and a veterinary have them con
stantly in charge.
A chimpanzee straight from Africa
is worth $300 to $1,000. Let this same
champanzee prove by his continued ex
istence that cage life is not mortally
tedious to him and immediately his
value leaps to $2,500.
TRAIN SAFE RESISTS
Held Up Crew and Captured
Safe But Could Not Blow
Douglas, Ariz., Sept. 7. A second
posse left here at daybreak today to
reinforce the posse of Sheriff Wheeler,
now believed chasing six bandits who
held up tho Golden State Limited on
the Rock Island road near Apache,
shortly before midnight.
A switch engine and three automo
biles were used to rush 20 men under
Vt heeler to the scene. Word was re
ceived early today that Sheriff AVheeler,
a former captain of rangers, is now
pressing the robbers closely.
iraiumcn who faced the bandits' re
volvers for nearly SO minutes while
they vainly strove to shatter the ex
press safe with nitro-glycerine, declared
they believed the bandits amateurs.
The posse under Sheriff Wheeler has
been given an excellent description of
the bandits and is supplied with food
and water for several days' pursuit.
it ib Deiievea the robbers tied up an
arroyo o mountains 20 miles east,
where the forbidding nature of the
country would make pursuit very difficult.
The .fact that the robbers used six
charges of nitro-glycerine on the safe
without results seemed to confirm the
belief that the cracksmen were ama
Two men boarded the limited near
Apache station and forced the train
crew to cut off the engine and three
leading cars, the express car and two
Hnail coaches from the passenger sec
tion, men me robbers ordered the en
gineer to puil down the track three
miles to a point near a bridge where
four confederates waited. Tho train
crew was forced to line ud within 2(1
feet of a camp fire. Two masked men
with four revolvers covered them. Fnnr
bandits then tumbled the steel safe from
the express car and set to work with the
first charge of nitro-glycerine. This
attempt was a failure, as were five
others. Finally, when several cracks
men became nervous,- the crew was or
dered into a mail car and bolted in. The
bandits immediately fled eastward on
