lin's was always for a ij.'i limit at first,
with tiio understanding that along to
ward morning, after a couplo of hours
of warming up, anybody could gupgest
the removal of (ho limit if ho wanted
to. 'The way Conkling and Sheridan
bluffed each otkir (hat night was a cau

luck altogether as tm element in their
gocdnaturid play against each other,
and us both of them caught fine hands
occasionally when engaged in this tug
of war of blufiing neither of them could
get an exact lino cu the other, and it
was belter than a play to study their
faces tit tho i-how downs. Conkling was
having all (ho success during (lie latter

time after time, Conkling would show

the first mess himself, and after it had
gone around and none of the three of us i
could open it Sheridan (-pi m d it him

traction that beat tha big giraffe, The
people wcro just carried away with
him. There wasn't anything about him
but what interested them, even tho
slightest little things. On clear days,
whim we wero where wo could do it and
tho sun was right for us, wo used to get
the giraffe out in front of the entrance
or tho main tent and hsvo him stand
thero like a great sentry. People m,.i d to
stop and look up at him, and then tlio
first thing you know somebody 'd dis
cover his shudder. Anybody d cast a
long shudder at that hour of the day, of
course, but thogiraflo's shaddi t reached
11s far as you could sec. And as soon as
ouu mail begun to look at ic -10 others
did, and then you'd sea 'cm. I've seen
1,000 people at a tinio.line up long that
shudder and jus.t stand along the edge
of it down past tho main tent and tho
sideshow tents, just standing there
lookin at it. Tho giraJTywas gr.at, but
his shudder fairly staggered 'cm. And
there they'd stand (ill tho sen drnppi d
down under tho edge of (he earth, and
tho iirst thing they know there wasn't
any shadder. Then they'd stare at each
other for a minute, and thi u all bunch
up together again and look at tbugiruiTo
till wo took him in.
"We used to have a lino on tho pro
gramme saying that at 3 o'clock and at
!J o'clock tho great giraffe would hand
around ice wati r. That's where the sou
venirs come in. Wo used to give away
the glasses tho water was in. Tho glass;, s
wero marked, 'Souvenir of tho Crcat
Giraffe,' and whoever got 'cm could
keep 'em. Tho seats in our circus wero
divided into four sections. We used to
give away four dozen tumblers at every
performance, ono in each section. Win n
tlie time come, wo'd march the giraffe
around tho edge of tho ring, and in
front of each section his keeper would
Hand lnm a wiro holder holding a do:a n
glasses, which lie would take by tho
handle in his mouth. Tall as he was, ho
could reach easy to tlio bighi:t back

to grab for those glasses. Itseinisas

"At one evening entertainment whe'i

a man sitting ou the fourth tier from

"Courso ye don't sco no dawg," said
Tommy, ceasing his gymnastics under
