I 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 creatures." 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 dealing with a crossly deceitful creature. ml t e i 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 exhibition was: "Lissy, apportl" "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 : "'Lissy, apportl' "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," BIG ENTRY FOR PENN MEET.

MAYOR IS VERY MAD Continued from page.1 the books," continued the mayor, "then it is my duty to eec that it is Htiictly enforced." "Vull it be enforced so far as the churches are concerned?" he was asked "Clergymen work for pay on Sun day don't they" he answered, "so do many choir singers, as well as most of .the organiHts. In other words, under the strict interji-ctation of the ordinance they break tho law every Sunday of their lives." "Then there are the street car em ployees, drug clerks, cigar salesmen, ana several other small businesses If it is against the law for theatres and moving picture shows to be open on the Sabbath, then my idea of the law is that it is wrong for everyone else, regardless of his kind of worjt, to be employed", on that say. I am here here to enforce all laws and I am going to do it." Mr. Billard was elected mayor of Topcka April 5. The churchmen of the kansnB capitol made a fight on him on the ground that he did not believe in God. Kansas City Star. WILLIAM GREW COMPANY PRESENTS A COMEDY Light Farce Last Nlgtit Spices Up List ol Company'sWeekly Productions. (From Saturday's Dally) the Parmele last cveninir the At 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 Mr. Bennett. 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 Theater to play in that city during the Nebraska Banker's Convention they will not appear in their usual day next week, but will be in Plattsmouth Wednesday night. They will put on a good southern play, "The sweet est girl iu Dixie." 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 nicely today. W. E. Morgan and County Clerk Morgan returned on an early train this morning from Omaha. Clerk of Court Robertson and wife spent the day in Omaha. Articles ol Incorporation.

Remarkable Theory. 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 Ohio river. 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' hole. Lcsl'o s.
