The elephant had been ailing for some time and had given his keepers a great deal of trouble. He showed a tendency to be vicious early in the spring, and in March the attendant be came afraid of him. Mr Hall then sent to New York for Captain Dabo, his old keeper, but he met with no better suc cess in handling him than others, for notwithstanding that he used great precaution, the elephant turned on him and threw him against a wall, and while he escaped with no broken bones, he was considerably bruised. The animal had always shown great offection for Mrs Frank Longbotham, better known as Mable Hall, and she had always been able to handle him with the greatest ease, and for a while she was the only one who dared go near him, but of late he seemed to have even forgotten her and it was a serious task to feed and water him as no one dared go within his reach. “Old Charley” was one of the Lochart elephants and was brought to this country from Africa by Mr Lochart about twenty years ago. Col Hall purchased the elephant from the Ringling Brothers ten years ago and since that time he has always been quiet and peaceable until now. He is thought to be about 36 years old and was worth several thousand dollars. He weighed six and a half tons or thirteen thousand pounds. His tusks are valued at SISOO, and the hide has been remov ed and will probably be mounted. Prep arations for his burial have been going on and he will be interred on the grounds as near where he died as pos sible, on account of his great weight. It will take a ten-foot trench to hold the carcass. Cambridge Mr and Mrs Burr Christianson were called to Spring Prairie last Saturday to see their son Arthur who was taken seriously ill.
