John Patterson, boss of the gi
gantic animal family that has been
formed by consolidating the most un
usual menagerie feature of America's
two most famous circuses, can spin
many a yarn regarding strange
friendships. He recalls a mean
tempered lioness who mothered a pet
kitten. friendships between ele
phants and the talented performing
dogs happen most every season. Re
cently a performinfr goose insisted
upon sharing part of as ostrich's din
ner, much to the wonder of the lat
ter and the amusement of visitors.
Now a sudden and un explainable
friendship has sprung up between
"Congo," a big orang-outang, and

"Fluff," an orphaned spaniel pup.
"Congo's" trainer took the puppy un
der his wing, and in less than a week
"Congo" had learned to feed the dog
from a milk bottle. Friendship ripen
ed and soon the orans-outang insisted
that "Fluff" share his apartment at
all hours of the day and night. When
ever the dog wishes to visit "Congo,"
he barks in a peculiar way, the
orang-outang's trainer opens the
cage door and lets "Fluff" inside.
By chance you may see the dog
and monkey playing together in the
cage when Ringling Brothers and

come early, however, for when the
trumpets sound, announcing the
opening of the gorgeous introductory
pageant, "Fluff" insists on visiting

Helps to Solve a Real Problem

washing themselves or not.
There are a thousand and one ways more useful and
helpful, which a woman can find always at hand. The

rounded laundry service and appeals to more and more
women every day.
Rugs, Curtains, Blankets, and tLomforlahles cleaned

Typhoid increases each summer
and is particularly frequent among
people who have been away on vaca
tion and have drunk water from the

take the typhoid prophylactic vac

practically all cases.
A case of typhoid fever means sev
eral weeks of sickness. Typhoid
vaccine is simple to give, easy to
take and the price hi within the
reach of all.
