CHIK0, THE GIANT GORILLA.
Will Be Seen Here with the Baruum &
Chlko, ihe giant gorilla In the Bar
nutn & Bailey show, which copies to
Scranton next Thursday, is a high
liver. He feeds on the finest tropical
fruits, milk, rice, fresh egge aud port
wine, and he demands frequent
meals and makes his demands known
n an imperious maimer which shows
that be expects to be obeyed. When
hungry or thirsty, Chiko taps ou the
glass of his ca ;e with his big forefing
er, nnd as soon ns the keeper opens the
door ho claps wiiu bis big bands twice
for souiethiug to eat, nnd onco for 11
drink To see him eat 11 raw
egg is a comical sight. Taking
it in his two gMat hands, be-
side which n veteran base ball
player's look like an infant's, he bronks
tho shell at one end, carefully picks
nway enough to get at the contents,
iud then Hin-ks it ont. As sonu as the
shell is empty ho holds it out to be tilled
with wino to Wain down the, morsel.
Tho other Uy in llarrishurg a mis-
chi iVOni young Malay in tbe ethnolog
ical congress got hold somewhere of a
hiiia dummy egg, such us is used tin
ier Hitting hens and smuggled it into
the tout He manured to make the
ntlro heterogeneous collcctiou of po-
ple understand that ho was about to
per PCI rata a bnge joke, and when the
keeper's buck was turned he handed it
to Chiko. The big gorilla took it and
tried to crack tho end against th,. tmrs
of his cage, and persls'eutly picked at
it with his lingers for ihe tpaooof live
minutes. Ills luatillity to multo an
opening seemed to puzzle him and after
another intffeOtUtl attempt be took it
it into bis teeth. 1 he experience was
anything out pleasant, for ho Imut-
Httely dropped it, bopptd to the back
slJ of the cage and nursed his law
with both handl Then ho got ill id; it
bad. apparently begun to dawn upon
him that lie had ben tricked ('tier
ing a shrill cry he jumped npon the bit
of china nitu alt fours nnd Htttinpied
to crush it. The round thing to ik a
lurch lldtwite and in the melee tripped
him and ho oaine down on his hauuehee.
The assembly of curious types out
side were in a roar, and their hilarity
attracted Cbiko't attention He rs
giudsd them intently for a few in on
ills ami llieu loall appearances r--
sunn d bis attack on the egg The Bit
ohievous Malay imd got into the front
row to secure a full view of Ids suc
cessful practical joke, nnd Chiko got
bit eye on him. Suddenly raising him
self to his full height he began lo chat
ter rapidly and angrily, and hurled the
egg full at the convuUed Malay The
attack was unexpected, and the young
fellow got a blow In the r lis that don
bled him up. Then he was mud and
was in tho act of throwing back at the
animal when the ntteudunt returned
and put a stop to the riot.
Since this Incident the Singhalese,
Asmuris, Australians and all the rtrt
of the 800 ethnological spuciiueus have
had a very wholesome respect for
