crouched In a corner of the steel-walled
elephant house at the Bronx Zoo this
morning and tried with his fleeting wits
to match, the wits oX Ounda, the fifteen,
year-old bull elephant, gone mad with
the heat und cunnjngly trying with
tusks and trunk to murder the man.
Thuman won out over a terrible
death,' but only through iho heroism of
Dick Richard?, another elephant keep
er, who rlskel hU own life under the
Hailing trunk and lunging feet of the
enraged elephant to drag Thuman away
front his peril and thrust him to safety
through the bars of the enclosure.
Thuman Is now lying In Fordham Hos
pital, slashed and oruled and In a pre
Gjinda has borne the reputation of
being a bad elephant for the past two
years of his six-year stay In the ele
phant house at the park. Since l&Ot
Thuman lias been tho only man who
could read any sign of afectlon In his
wicked Uttlo red eyes and the single
privileged person who could go with Im
punity within range of Gunda's trunk.
At o'clook this morning Thuman
opened the door between Gunda's night
quarters In the elephant houio and .the
yard outside and drove tho elephant out
Into the yard, so that he could clean out
Gunda's quarters. Ho had hardly begun
to work when the light streaming
through the open door was suddenly shut
off and Thuman turned around to see
the elephant, standing with trunk raised.
In the doopvay.
Gunda charged snd Thuman tried to
reach the door leading out to the alley
way where visitors stand and look
through the heavy bars into the ele
phant's slet-plng room. He was not
quick enough. Gunda lashed him with
his trunk so viciously that Thuman was
hurled Into a corner.
He had the presence of mind to draw
h'.s body In as close to the wall as
possible, while the mad elephant stood
before him, lunging at him with his
At the nrst lunge one of the tusks
drove Its way through Thuman's left
thigh, missing the bone and penetrating
the flesh from side to side. Ounda tried
again to gore the keeper but the steel
walls forming the corner where the
keeper lay prevented his reaching Thu
man with his weapons. One broke off a
foot from the tip when the elephant
made a wild stab at the keeper.
Thuman was screaming for help nil
the time the enraged beait was striking
at him with his trunk and trying to
kick him by forward blows of his Im
mense feet. Finally Dick Itlchards
heard Thuman's cries and ran Into the
elephant house from the lnclosure out
side. He seized a pitchfork and Jumped
through the door into the compart
ment where the angry elephant was
lashing about. Uy prodding the beast's
flanks ho managed to divert nls atten
tion from Thuman, who was now nearly
unconscious. Then he raced to the
corner, gathered Thuman In his arms
and fought his way about the Iron
room, keeping the elephant at buy with
his fork, until bis buck wait against the
The bars are a little more than a

While the number of points marie by
the American 'athletes In the Olympic
games increased nt a siitlnfnctory rate,
to-day, thc- nlr In full of rumors of
Irritation, protosts and International
quarreling, not unmixed with dlsap
polntment, because the American
giants, who were relied upon to win
the discus throwing, were not up to
Tho causes for American gratified
tlon were set down ok follows:
Americans won all the points In tne
(Inula of the 110-metre hurdles.
An American won the first place In
the running, broad Jump; unknown
and unheralded, he nearly equalled
the world's record of O'Connor? which
has stood for thirty-two vears.
In qualifying for moro than the
lion's share of places In the 40-metre
'run. the Otympl) record, was broken
twice within a few minutes by Amer
icans. The causes of peevishness and wrath
The failure of Rose and McDonald
to win points in the discuss throw
ing; tho contest was won by a Finn
with legs like fence poit.
The disqualification of Young of
Ronton In the tOO-metro finals, under
circumstances like the disqualificat

The strike of the sailors or the
American headquarter ship Finland,
who' have refused to man the launch
es between shore and tho ship.
The Americans who qunllflcri for the
finals of the 400-mctres were Reidpath,
of Syracuse; Llndberg, of Chicago;
and Hart, of Michigan. Against them
Is only llraun, of Germany, who got In
by Young's disqualification.
AMERICANS CLEAN UP IN 110
METRE HURDLE RACE.
Albert 8. Qutteraon of the University
of Vermont came within a fraction of
an Inch of equalling the world's r:ord
for the running broad Jump maJe by
O'Connor In ISH). O'Connor actuully
Jumped 26 feet 1 inch, but there wis a
slight incline in the ground and the rcc
ord was fixed at 21 feet 1H4 Inches. Out
terson to-day made 7 metres 60 centi
metres, or a trifle over "t feet 11 Inches.
The big Jump was made at his very first
try and word at once (lashed over the
stands that andther Olympic record had
been signally surpassed. Rrlnker of
Canada and Aberg of Sweden were sec
ond and third, a foot or more losers.
Frederick W. Kelly of the University
of Southern California at Los Angeles
won the 110-metre hurdles In 15 1.10 sec
onds. Jnmes Wendell of the New York
Atheltic Club was second and Martin W.
Hawkins of the Multnomah Athletic.
Club was third.
The eliminations for the 3,000-metre

trig five runners, of which tho first three
score, gave a pretty spectacle! In a race
between Kohlemalncn, the fleet Finn,
and Klvlat of the Irish-American Ath

hung to the Finn's heels for seven laps,
but In the last, Kohlemalnen ran away
from him. ilerna, Tabor and Beott fol
lowed Klvlat, ahead of the rest of the
Finns, winning the heat for AmTica.
Germany won the second heat from
Sweden. The Swedes made no effort to
win, giving an exhibition of running
shoulder to shoulder In fust time. The
HrltUli team had a walkover In the last
heat. South Africa, Russia, Italy and
France withdrew their teams.
