"You are the most unfair man thnt

Mr. Hrooke went at finvder with en

Mr. llrooke contends that capsules filled

that they didn't know what had become

The Health Department has at last
been successful In dislodging, the squat
ters who for the last quarter of a cen
tury or morn have lived In wretched
shanties from Park and Madison ave
nues, between One Hundred and Flf
tenth street tad One Hundred and
Nineteenth streets. The shanties were
long ago condemned as a menace to
public health, and the tenants have
reielvrd repeated notices to vacate.
Having no plnce to go, and feeling a
sort of ownership to the rocks on which
their frail houses were merely hang

laist Saturday, however, they re
ceived a peremptory order from the
Hoard of Health to vacate within live

and thels morning Sergeant Cruise, of
the Health Department, sent live po

yet moved should be made to do so

Tip still lives. The most deadly poison
known to sclenc; hat failed to lay blm 'f-M
low. Man's knowledge has proved In- 'if'tB
effectual against tho innate cunnlnff ot jJ
the big pachyderm. '
At 6 o'clock this morning Dr. Hunt (9
It Kton and Allen, carrying leather bags, B
entired the elephant-house. Their ?U
knowledfro of toxicology caused them tt
be tin-led out by the Park Commit- '(
loners to superintend the admlnlstra- ',vU
tlon of the deadly drug which woa to vfl

had a little package off. cyanide o ffl
potassium, six ounces In all, sufficient to lM
kill a regiment of men. "JH
A crowd of fully one 'hundred people fM
hnd gathered around the building. 'Half 'im
of them were newspaper men, who bad ?JM
been detailed to witness tha execution. ifl
Park Commissioners Clausen, Straus ';
nnd Dell arrived shortly after, arid the VB
quintet went Into the elephant-house and H
shut the door t'ght. At CM o'clock the jM
dcors were opened, nnd those who bad itlfl
passes were allowed to enter, JH
Commissioners Hell and Straus took jM
charge of things, und soon bad a rope -".

All this time Tip stood behind his Iron- B
barred barrier and swung his trunk: yM
back and forth. Ills little eyes twin- ,?.
kled and had a knowing look. 'W
Keeper Snj-eler looked In and grinned. EH
"Whj", he's dead onto this scheme," wasj hU
his only comment.
Hnjder refused point-blank to be the JH
one to give Tip the poison, so Otto
Mopls, an old animal trainer, who had sUU
charge of Tip way back In 1581, was ap- SJ
It was fi.50 o'clock when Assistant vfll
Supt. RuniB handed Dr. Horace Allen, rflj
curator of the Museum of Natural His- e.'fll
tory, a big carrot, which he had scooped 1
out and fitted with a plug made from -Mm
another carrot. Ul
Dr. Allen took from his bag a package ?.Mt
of the poison and poured two ounces of ;
the white powder Into the hollowed-out jV
carrot. The plu- was neatly Inserted Vm
and tho svadly bolus was handed to ',!
He Takes the? Cnrrot. titM
Mopls stepped up to the bars and tjqfl
held the "arrot out to Tip with a word Mm
ot command. The great flexible trunk, ,aj
w th Its prehensile linger, stretched out ''9m
and grasped the carrot gingerly. ,Wt
Kvery one held his breath. The men ,Mu
ot science had said that the stuff would A
hardly reach Tip's stomach before be JM
would roll over dead. -f9I
Slowly and deliberately Tip curled his Mil
trunk under and lifted the carrot to his -B
capacious maw. An Instant later It hnd qwM
disappeared and the spectators waited fflj
to see the rive tons or flesh fall with a Jmt
thud and stiffen In the agonies of death. jH
Hut Tip didn't fall worth a cent. Ha '2flJ
gave the carrot a crunch between bis ''
powerful Jans and then deliberately ?A1
apat It out In several pieces. Still, the m
spectntoia thought that enough of the !Mt
deadly stuff had found Us vvav into Tip's 9
stomach to do for htm. There was, BHJ
however, no perceptible change In the wl
Ur Allen at once called for nn apple, i'fM
and Mr Hums prepared one to receive uH
another eiuantltv of the poison. Two iU
ounces more of the white powder was PMt
poured Into the hollow apple and plugged -

Mopls took It and again held out the 'iJM
Instrument of dea h for Tip's acceptance. tcHI
