" At 6 o'clock this morning Drs. Hunt-
it gton and Allen, carrjlns leather bags,
entered the elephant house. Their
knowledge of toxicology caused them to
be singled out by the Park Commis
sioners to superintend the administra
tion of the deadly drugs which was to
make of Tip a good elephant. They
brought a little package of cyanide of
potassium, six ounces In all, sutllclent to
kill a regiment of men.
" A crowd of fully one hundred people
had gathered around the building. Half
of them were newspaper men, who had
been detailed to witness the execution
II Park Commissioners Clausen, Straus
tfH end Bell arrived shortly ufter, and the
'fl quintet went Into the elephant-houso and
I shut the door tight. A,1 c3 o'clock the
STB dcors were opened, and those who had

Commissioners Dell and Straus took
charge of things, and soon had a rope
stretched across the wide asphalt pave
ment In front of Tip's cage.
Viui Tip Suspicion.
t, 'AH this time Tip stood behind his Iron-
barred barrier and swung his trunk
back andf orth His little eyes twin
kled and had a knowing look.
Keeper Snyder looked In and grinned.
"Why. he's dead onto thlo BChemo," was
his only comment.
it Snyder refused point-blank to be the
cii one to give Tip the poison, so Otto
&H Mopls, an old animal trainer, who had
charge of Tip way back In 1831, was up
,,. pointed executioner.
ill It was G50 o'clock when Assistant
Bupt. Burns handed Dr. Horace Allen,
curator of the Museum of Natural His
tory, a big carrot, which he had scooped
TT. out and fitted with a plug made from
" another carrot
MDr. Allen took from his bag a package
of the poison and poured two ounces of
the white powder Into the hollowed-out
carrot The plug was neatly Inserted
and the deadly bolus was handrd to
He Tnken the Cur rot.
Jk, Mopls stepped up to the bars and
held the carroa out to Tip with a word
of command The great llexlble trunk,
with Its prehensll linger, stretched out
and grasped the carrot gingerly
stai Every one Held his breath. The men
L of science had said that the stuff would
1 Ml hardly reach Tip's stomach before he
. would roll oer dead
fTt Slowly and deliberately Tip curled his
trunk under and lifted the carrot to his
in capacious maw. An Instant later It had
disappeared and the spectators waited
i to see the iHp tons of flesh fall with a
1 thud and stiffen In the agonies of death.
I But Tip didn't fall worth a cent He
f. rave the carrot n crunch between his
powerful Jaws and then deliberately
pat it out In seernl pieces Still, the
spectators thought that enough of the
deadly stuff had found Its nav Into Tip's
, stomach to do for him There was,
alt however, no perceptive change In the
nag elephant's demeanor.
i Or Allen at once called for an apple,
s and Mr. Burns prepared one to recele
' another qiiniUlr tif the poison Two
1 ounces more of the white ponder was
w pourel Into the hollow apple and plugged

he began to rally and seemed more like
At 9 o'clock he did not appear to be

Dr. Allen, however, Insisted that the

told: , ',
' Ah. that's not necessnry Just tell .
the Justice that Furrell's dead." V
Justice Tulntor looked surprised. Then a
he fumed, but he didn't comment on ,
the Superintendent's breach of duty. i
Tho Justice told Masterson. who was ;
accompanied b) l.avv)er K M. Friend, M
that Farrell was dead, and that he i

A guest, who had twice called on i&
Farrell during the day, shaved the dying S
