The Hlllhouse high school and the

meet at the Yale field Saturday, No
vember 6, to play in the semi-finals of
the championship series of the Connect
icut Interscholastic Football associa
For several years past the support
accorded high school athletics by the
people of New Haven has been exceed
ingly poor. Perhaps this has been
caused as much by the weakness of the
teams as by the lack of interest shown
Jiy the town people. This year, how
ever, there is no reason why more in
terest should not be manifested, as the
Hillhouse team is an exceptionally
strong one and, if well supported, may
be expected to make a strong fight for
the championship of the state.
Much enthusiasm has been aroused
In Hillhouse by her signal victory over
rVVaterbury high school last Saturday
and a large attendance is looked for on
November 6, as the game between Mer-
Jden high school ana the local high
(school will in all probability be the
closest fought contest and the best ex
hibition of football given in this state
by scholastic teams for many years.
The probable line-up of Hillhouse is as
follows: Left end, Benham; left tackle,
Hart; left guard, Ferris; center, Ad
ams; right guard, Kaerhle; right tackle,
Cowies; right end, Osborn or Kennedy;
quarter-back, Morris (captain); right
half-back, Noyes; left half-back, R.
Hart; full-back, Beecher. The game
trill be called at 10;3Q a. m.

hall last night the election returns were

STORIES OF ELEPHANTS.
Some of the Remarkable Things Done
Of their marvelous mathematical pre
cision and ability to count, no doubt
can exist in the mind of any one who
has over visited Mandalay, in Upper
Burmah. There large forests of teak
are cultivated by the government for
building purposes, and the squai-ed tim
bers are placed and secured one above
another till a raft is formed to float
down the Irrawaddy for conveyance to
various stations. Elephants do the
whole of this work. They convey the
enormous loge down to the water's
edge and pile them one above another,
both lengthwise and across, till a per
fect cube is formed. They show an in
telligence and Interest in their work
that seems human, as any eye-witness
can affirm whwo has watched an ele
phant at his loading, and then has seen
him move a few paces to one side, in or
der to Judge of the effects of his work.
If the appearance of the heap is not
quite symmetrical two elephants force
the logs one way or .the other with
their trunks till they get the desired re
sult, and the perfect evenness and sym
metry of the finished cube is astonish
ing. They never miscalculate the num
ber required for each cube, and never
overweight it. In 1870 a near relative of
mine was head of the Indian military
olice, and his winter circuit comprised
the Looshal country and hill tracts.
Herds of wild elephants abounded in
the district, which contained two im
The greater part of our tour was
made by water and once we were de
tained several days in the bed of a riv
er, through the insufficiency of water
for the draft of our boats. Some of
them lay high and dry, but the office
boat, which consisted of a single cabin
with large doors fore and aft, was in
the stream. My friend sat In his cabin,
absorbed in official correspondence,
while we explored the shores. Sudden
ly looking up, he was dismayed to find
a herd of about forty wild elephants,
headed by a vicious-looking leader,
gazing steadily at the boat and Its soli
tary occupant. Stout soldier as he was,
he watched the leader with considera
ble trepidation, for on his action de
pended that to be adopted by the herd.
To his immense relief, after a trumpet
or two, the leader turned disdainfully
and crossed the stream. He breathed a
sigh of relief, and had forgotten his
lucky escape In the absorption of work
when, swish! through the cabin came
dash after dash of water. On the op
posite side Btood the leader and his
herd, with well-filled trunks. One fater
the other administered the shower bath
and then retreated, leaving my friend
thoroughly ducked and very rueful over
the damp condition of his government
papers and surroundings, but thankful
for his escape from a worse fate than a
wetting. The prime minister of Nepal
and the court were at that time In
holy Hardwar in order to bathe in the
sacred Ganges, and perform their pil
grimage to the "Hur Ki Pyree," or
"steps to heaven," and for their bene
fit the elephants were made to go in
procession through the sacred town.
Can any child picture a procession of
one hundred and fifty tame elephants in
single file, headed by Bijli, and with
Naraln bringing up the rear? It was
truly a grand sight. They covered a
mile and a quarter of road, and were as
orderly as soldiers In a marching regi
ment. Through the town they marched,
each beast in its place, In no way dis
concerted by the populace or by the
screaming children, who joined in sing
ing their nursery rhymes at each turn
of the road. They think that Gune1
shin, the god of wisdom, has his exist
ence in an elehant's body, and so they
venerate the colossal beast immensely.
Their little voices, pitched at the high
est, send out the couplet:
Elephant, oh elephant, give us a hair of
Or, instead thereof, a sword of gold!
It was aquaint, queer sight! The
old town with Its mosques and mina
rets; the "sacred stairs of Vishnu,"
leading down to the blue water's edge;
the rlests on the steps in gay Bulphur
colored garments, feeding the sacred
fish, while the sacred monkeys were
swarming everywhere, swinging from
branch to branch of the trees, feeding
on the housetops and screaming and
playing. Below -marched undisturbed
the imposing procession of elephants,
all bent on obedience, and wending
their way, regardless of all distrac
tions. Mrs. Marie A. Mills in St. Nich
