I Queer Nature Story Told
Golden Gate Park
H By SERGEANT P. H. McGEE
(Head of Mounted Police in Qoldei
H "Gate Par it, San Prancieco, who ha
I been friend and atudent of animale fo
40 years.)
Father Hans, the paternal old on
H horned elk, who has for the past fet
H months maintained his protectorat
over oar large buffalo herd at Uoldet
I Gate Park, Is beginning to feel himeel
H slipping from his proud and unique po
sit ton. I 03X1 uPO hlo omkHInn nr\n>
Imencing to fade and he Is gettlni
ready to retire temporarily.
(Handing there on top of the hlgl
hill In the center of the buffalo pad
dock, one eye cocked at the three buff
alo bulls grazing off in the corner, th
other watching closely every move o
the buffalo cows, be seems to h
studying a safety-first campaign, whei
hiaTlynaetic is overthrown. For Han
is now shedding his one remainini
horn for the season and will soon b
at the mercy of Woodrow Wilson, th
giant buffalo bull and rival to leader
ahlp whose harem he stole severs
months ago and who awaits bis re
vengo.
1 don't know whether It's love o
terror, but for several months now
Hans has had that herd of buffal
kow-towing to him like a bunch o
servants. It is very unusual to flm
animals associating together like thai
but here It's been a case of maklm
the best of the situation for the buff
afe. They haven't had much choic
anout it.
Woodrow Wilson was always tn
tighter of the herd until Hans hov
into sight. Hans had evidently bee
quite a fighter back In his owujvoodf
and he Immediately challenged Wood
row to a finish battle for the leader
ship.
The tight was staged up on the to
of the hill in a large open space
Large buffalo and little bdffalo a
gathered to witness the tilt for sover
ofgnty. Round and round the hill the
fought, sometimes onthe top of th
hill, often scattering the encirclin
? watchers as they charged and counte
charged to; the little valley below.
After several hours, Hans emerge
the victor, a much weakened and scar
reA elk, with one of his magniflcen
hyfni broken off near the head. The
r . it)r several days he followed Woodrrn
' around like a tame dog. We a
Ihought it the ebsequious fawning c
ivC a conquered beast.
But not at all. He was Just puttln
;he fear of elks into that buffalo. H

? was telling him to look out?that he
ti was on the watch and that when hit
t, lost horn grew again he would prod
5 the stuffing out of Woodrow and all
' his friends. And that in the meantime
Woodrow would better toe the
line.
e And up until now not a buffalo has
n darod dispute Han's authority. Ho
i. herds the cows Into one corner, the
.' bulls into another and then takes up his
. position in the center of the paddock
at the pinnacle of the hill. Not a buffI,
alo crosses that dead line. The least
i, move by Woodrow or his mates and
ii Hans is right arter them.
But now Hans Is beginning to sense
y the Inevitable. He foels his horn slipo
nlnp anri is treating liiq rharcpo with
g more gentleness. But I'm afraid when
ir the remaining horn falls off. we'll have
to move him away to save him from
d Woodrow and his vengeance.
