II W mi Klpliiit' TtbiiU, and She Htruek K.i-lli'Uf Within Raaab, (I nun ilm (ten r'rmielsoo Examiner. One small rat caused more damag in five mlnutet in tlie bl circus tent at Central Park yemerday morning than a doien men could repair in twenty four hour. The rut ran up the trunk of jm, the big female elephant, and ghe did the reat. JuhC how h happened no one aeemi to krtow.'but when the flrat wild yell wns riven, and the duet had settled, a score or more oC frlghened employee found two animal cagee upset, and their bars bent and twisted, the canvas of the menagerie tent sagging to the ground in the place where the poles had been knocked out, and a path of ruin leading to where the big doors that close the Eighth street entrance had been burst open and smashed into kin dling wood. Jess was gone, where she had gone or what she was doing no one knew. The fact that she was loose in the streets of a big city was sufficient pro vocation for the wildest conjectures, for an elephant without a master can do more damage In a given time than a dozen runaway locomotives. At the first sound of the commotion one of the animal trainers, ueorge Knight, groped his way out of the big tent and was Just In time to see Jess demolish the doors and disappear into the street. He followed, running, and was joined at the entrance by Manager William Sells, who had been eating his supper In a restaurant across the street. They gave chase to the elephant, which had taken the center of the street and was going toward Howard street at a lively gait, waving her trunk high In the air and trumpeting loudly at every stride. By a great burBt of speed Mr. Sells and Knight overtook Jess as she was crossing Mission street, but she paid no more attention to their frantio orders of "Down! Down, Jess! than If they had not been in existence At Howard street she turned west, maintaining the same swinging pace, and with the two men still hanging on, one on either side. Both men have had considerable experience with elephants and neither could understand why Jess kept her trunk high In the air and why all her actions indicated pain and fright, not anger. The explanation came later. On up Howard street she rattled, the fragment of the broken chain by which she had been tethered jingling merrily over the cobbles. Occasionally a be lated wayfarer would come in view, but when he beheld the big bulk forg ing toward him and heard the shrill trumpetlngs he would disappear over the nearest fence, to be seen no more. Just about Tenth street Jess turned into a blind alley in which were stand ing a lot of wagons belonging to a con tractor. These she overturned as fast as she came to them. At the end of the alley is a watering trough, and into this Jess plunged her trunk. Half its contents were drawn up and then squirted out against the eaves of an ad joining house. The brute evidently gained no relief from this operation, for she overturned the trough and started for the street again, pushing aside Mr. Sells and his companion, who were still trying to get control of her. Out Howard street again the chase led, but when Eleventh street was reached Jess stopped short and began to beat her trunk on the stones of the street. Knight approached, and after great difficulty he coaxed the elephant to allow him to examine her trunk. He found something resembling a slate pencil in size and shape protruding about an inch from the hollow end of the member. Thinking this might be the cause of the trouble he took a firm hold of it, gave a stiff Jerk, and out came a rat. The little animal that had caused so much trouble was not yet dead, but nearly so, and when Jess saw it she gave every evidence of satisfaction that an elephant can give. She was com manded to kneel down, and while she was contentedly masticating a dozen loaves of fresh bread that had been brought from a neighboring baker's shop she permitted the attendants who had come up with ropes to hobble her. She was afterward led back to her quarters without the least trouble, and when the children from the orphan asylums fed her peanuts in the after noon she looked the mildest-mannered elephant that ever wrecked a tent. "During all my experience in the show business," said Mr. Sells, "I have never seen or heard of a like occur rence. Jess has always been a good' natured animal, and has never devel oped any vicious traits; She follows her Burmese trainer, 'Elephant Bill,' around like a dog, and any of the ani mal men can handle her. "I suppose the rat ran in her trunk while she was asleep. An elephant sleeps with its trunk lying straight out along the ground, and I suppose when the rat ran in she contracted the mus cles of her trunk and held him fast. Her trainer always sleeps with her, but he was away last night, and when she failed to find him she became '"panic Etricken. If hs had been there she would have at once indicated to him vhat the trouble was an-i he would have relieved her. As it was we were extremely lortunato in securing her be fore more damage was done." Inference. From the Chioago Daily Tribune. "I am glad to be able to say, chil dren," remarked the benignant old gentleman who was addressing the Waif's Mission Sunday School, "that 1 never swore an oath in my life. I never drank a &rop,&t any kind of in toxicating liquor. I never took a chew of. tobaco, never had a cigar in my mouth, never smoked a pipe, never went to a theater, and never saw the inside of a circus tent." He stopped a moment to take breath and a boy in the front seat spoke up: "I guess you must 'a' come to town on the last load, didn't ye?" T11EY ABB BOVNCER8.
