KANGAROO PUT TO DEATH
Zoo Officials Pitied tho Poor Old
Drucs Concealed in a Cornucopia,
Died In un Erect l'n.sturo.
Tbe oldest kangaroo at lhe Zoo was put
to death officially jesterday afternoon by
Mr. Joseph Palmer, taxldcrcJst of tha
National Muicuni. This unfortunate exile
from Australia has of late excited the sym

extreme old age the began to pice for her
native land, she giew sick, her hair began
to turn very grey and tlijn, aud uthern-Ue
she piescuted a pitiable spectacle.
It occurred to tbe officers of tbe museum
that this lonesome kangaroo that was not a
thing of beauty aud could not he a Joy for
ever, ought to be hastened Into the hea en of
bcr kind and kindred.
Her taking off was performed In a most
singular manner, one which is Infinitely
superior to electrocution, hanging, or
drowning. The official executioner ot this
pet kangaroo of the nation used chloroform
and it is rejioricd that the poor exile died
with the fumes ot death in her lungs and a
smile of gratitude on her elongated face.
Tbe process was as Ingenious as it was
efrejtive. The assistants of the taxidermist
entered tbe cage of the superannuated kan
garoo. They had in Uieir hands oneot these
cornucopia bags, which the kangaroo sup
IKiscd to be a bag of bon bons. She rose to
the occasion, sat on her tall, and extended

went up against a sponge saturated with

forgot everything but her native land.
She embraced tho bag with her little
arms and tried to embrace the nearest ex

very rapidly, she only had time to back
up against the grating, hold out her arms
