THE ELEPHANT TURNED.
A Bit of TreecHery ana Badly Bat
tered Train in
Carl Ilagcnbcck, the eminent
owner, exhibitor and trainer of
Wild animals, had muny adventures.
in his half century of exjerience. j
Some of them are described in p. '
book entitled "Beasts and Men."
On more than one occasion an ele
phant came uncomfortably near
putting an end to Mr. Hagonbcck'a
career. (Jne of the worst accidents
happened at the end of the sixties.
About that time he purchased a
menagerie at Trieste, which includ
ed among the other beasts a fe
male elephant which stood about
eight feet high. It seemed to be a
thoroughly good tempered animal,
its only fault being that it occa
sionally had the sulks "a not un
common characteristic)," comments
Mr. Ilagcnbcck, "in all feminine
He soon made friends with the
elephant, which he named Lissy,
ana he never passed its stall with
out giving it a handful of food. Ho
was therefore, he believed, justified
in thinking ho had quite won its
heart, and as it never showed any
signs of violence it did not occur
to Mr. Ilagcnbcck that ho might be

me eicpiiant was learning a
trick in which it had to swing its
keeper into the air with its trunk
and then slowly set him upon the
ground again. The word of com'
mand which was given to the beast
when it had to perform this simple
"One day," to continue in Mr.
Hagenbeck's own words, "I found
Lissy alone in lcr stable, the keep
er being absent. It must have been
a devil that made mo feel a desire
to be raised on high by her, after
tho manner of her affectionate
treatment of her keeper. I stroked
and fed her and then, taking hold
of her trunk, called out the word
of command :
"Then followed ono of tho most
vilely treacherous acts of which I
have ever heard. Lissy began to
obey the order, but I soon felt that
she was bent on mischief, for the
embrace of her trunk was unpleas
antly vigorous, and I soared high
into the air.
"But I was not quietly deposited
once more upon my feet.
"Instead of this Lissy dashed me
violently against tho wooden bar
rier in front of her stall, and I
went flying over into tho menag
erie. "I lay almost senseless upon the
ground until the old keeper, Phi
lippe, appeared to help me home.
"Fortunately no bones were
broken, but I was terribly battered
and bruised and for weeks could
only hobble about with great pain,"

WILLIAM GREW COMPANY
PRESENTS A COMEDY
Light Farce Last Nlgtit Spices Up
List ol Company'sWeekly
(From Saturday's Dally)
the Parmele last cveninir the
Grew Company put on a laughable
comedy farce that created a good many
side-splitters. The play itself was
hardly more than a conglomeration
of laugh, but the parts were very well
played and the result was a pleasing
one to the well filled house. The play
was entitled "The strange adventures
of Miss Brown." The scene was laid in
England at a strict girls seminary,
where a lover of one of the girls, dis
guised as a student in the school, had
many trying experiences before he
safely managed to pull off their elope
ment from the building. The leading
characters in the play were English
officers and the ladies were students
in Miss llomney's Academy in Glou
chester. William Grew in his double part
of Captain Courtenay and Miss Brown
kept the audience in a continual round
of laughter with his masculine way
under the feminine garb. His work
in both parts was very good.
Mcharry as Major O'Gallaghcr kept
up his standing with the audience as
one of tho favorites of the first water.
ti:.. i : . v. i i
ma ai uug was nnc aim ms easy manner
before the foot lights always make
a hit with the people.
Miss Pet tea in the role of Angelina
Bright well took especially well.' She
seems to fit into her varied parts from
week to week as though she were
raised for that particular character.
Miss llowman as Mrs. OGallagher
and Miss Bomney appeared in the
most pleasing part she has been in
lor mouths. "Boby Endcrs as the
music master took well with audience
and played out his part of the German
musician very capably. Scrccant
Tanner of Scotland Yard presented by
Mr. Bennett was a comical specimen
of humanity of. the Sherlock Holmes
type. The part of Mr. Hibbcrtson. a
stern guardian of the ward of chancery
in the school, was nicely played bv
Toward the close of the play, the
dinner set that was to be given away
was raffled off by Mr. Grew, the draw
ing being done by Chief Amick's (laugh
tcr. The lucky holder of the drawn
No. loO lias not shown up today to
claim his prize:
On account of a previous engagement
the company has made with the Ncligh

Wednesday night. They will put
on a good southern play, "The sweet

Broke Ills Arm.
C. C. Despain had the misfortune
to receive a bad fall yesterday about
noon which resulted in a broken arm
slightly above the wrist. Mr. Des
pain was walking along Sixth street
and in attempting to dodge a team,
while crossing to the opposite side,
he slipped and fell, striking his left
hand heavily on the ground. On ex
amination it was found that one of
the bones near the wrist was quite
badly shattered. The injured mem
ber was bound up at a physician's
office and the gentleman proceeded
to his home where he is getting along

A Monument That Was Reared t?
A queer looking monument
stands in the city park at Hamil
ton, O. A globe, hollowed at each
pole and marked with the lines of
geographical measurement?, id
mounted upon a marble plinth. It
was erected by Americus Symmes
in memory of his father," John
Clcvcs Symmes, a short time before
the civil war. The elder Symmes
was the author of the remarkable
"Theory of Concentric Spheres,
Demonstrating That tho Earth fa
Hollow, Habitable Within and
Widely Open at tho roles." He
was a nephew of the first landlord
of the country that runs along the
Symmes first announced his "dis
covery at ht. Louis in 1818. In a
well written brochure he asked for
"100 brave companions, well equip
ped, to start 'from Siberia in the
fall with reindeer and sleighs on
the ice of the frozen sea. I engage
we find a warm and new land
6tocked with thrifty vegetables and
animals if not men on reaching one
degree north of the latitude of 8?
degrees. Wc will return the fol
lowing spring." In 1822, after
delivering a series of lectures,
Symmes requested congress for a
subvention in order to equip an ex
pedition. The senate unanimously
rejected his appeal, as did tho gen
eral assembly ot Uhio two years
later. Ono of his converts, Jere
miah N. Reynolds, with the co-operation
of Rush and Southard, both
members of President John Quiucy
Adams' cabinet, and Dr. Watson, a
rich resident of New York city, fit
ted out the ship Annawan in 1828
and set sail in October for tho
warm nnd fertile cavity they believ
ed to exist at the south pole. When
they arrived at a latitude, of 82 de
grees south the incorrectness of
Symmes' theory was impressed
upon them. But before they re
turned the author had died in tho
spring of 1829, fully believing that
his calculations were correct.
John Cleves Symmes was never
nearer to tho north polo than
southern Canada, where he fought
ns a soldier in the war of 1812. Ilia
geography of the polar regions ex
isted only in his imagination. His
arguments were so plausible and his
pleas so ingenious that thousands
of men firmly believed in "Symmes'
