New Yokk, May 12. Tip, the big man
killing elephant, gave the park commis
sioners and favored medical men a great
deal of anxiety and finally baffled them in
their attempt to kill him. W4en, a few
days ago, the conclusion was reached that
the gigantic pachyderm was incorrigible

were discussed. ""he conclusion was
reached to killed bim'with poison, and
cyanide of potassntn was selected as the
most likely drug to do its work quickly
and painlessly. Tip was deprived of food
for twenty-four hours. At 6 a. in. Tark

A few minutes later Urs. Washington.
Allen a:id Spitzka joined them. Tip was
meanwhile swaying restlessly around in
his cage, and swinging his enormous
trunk viciously. Tom, the trick elephant,
and Juno, who occupied the adjoining
cacc were driven out to the open space be
hind the elephant house and chained there
so they would not be disturbed or fright
ened by the exected trumpeting of Tip
w hen he would get his "pill." Otto Mops,
who had been for years au animal traiuer,
both in Germany and this country,
walked up to the cage aud handed Tip a
rosy colored apple which had a big dose of
cyanide of potassium bidden within its
surface. The big fellow nibbled at it a
moment with his trunk, aud finally put it
iu bis capacious mouth. Hut when be
crunched it bstweeu his teeth, he evident
ly felt that there was something wrong
with the taste and spat it out.

Mops theu tried hinr with a carrot,
which lie similarly drugged, but Tip re
fused to taste it, as he did another apple
aud carrot which were passed to him
afterwards. Keeper Mop then gave Tip
a piece of brcal containing about two
ounces of the deadly drug, but thut big
fellow, after munching it slowly a couple
of times, threw it also on the floor. Tip
undoubtedly had his misgivings about the
dainty morsels which were being fed to
him, but the doctors said that be had cer

to kill a dozen horses. The drug did not
seem to have very much effect ou him un

violent motions of his bead, body and

seemed to be getting weak. This lasted
only a short time, however, aud then Tip
