Quarts of Cocaine Were Used in Re
lieving His Distress and the Tooth
Was Not Extracted Until the Brute
Was Loaded on His Car.
WednesUny'M Unlly.1
John , one of the mammoth trained
elephants of the Foropaugh-Sclls
show , was relieved of an aching mol-
; vr , six Inches across , between the
line ho waa loaded in the car nt
Omaha and unloaded in Norfolk this
morning. If the tooth could not
nave been extracted It is probable
that the mammoth beast would have
lieon driven mad and would have to
10 killed , meaning a loss of about $ S-
000 to the management of the circus.
John Is one of the original troupe of
eight elephants trained by Adam
Forepaugh , jr. , and was regarded as
so valuable 'that John Paterson , the
distinguished veterinarian and animal
surgeon of New York city , who has
performed a number of Important op
erations on the animals of the Xoo
at Central Park , was summoned to
take the case. For several weeks
John has been suffering from the
toothache and quarts of cocaine have
boon iibod lo assuage his sufferings.
An attempt was made to extract
the tooth on' the grounds in Omaha ,
but tliG.tUiilnml broke loose fiom the

cable , which served as a guy rope to
brace a heavy telephone pole , a block
onfat oC the Show grounds. The cable
was anchored to a short post , and
when the elephant struck the twisted
wire the post was torn from the
The cumbrous gallop of the beast
was abruptly stopped. He tripped
upon the wire and toppled over upon
his head and side. By the force of
his fall ho was temporarily stunned
and while he lay there , with heaving
sides and a froth of blood oozing from
his mouth , three keepers made quick
work in putting chained restraints
upon him.
He was then taken back to the
grounds and preparations made for
extracting the tooth.
The terrible trumpetings and vi
brating walls of the beast were finally
quieted after n large quantity of co
caine had been Injected Into his jaw.
As he lay upon the ground ho was
fettered securely to stakes. His
mouth was pried open with a wedge ,
which was operated upon the princi
ple of n jackacrew.
Dr. Paterson , with sleeves rolled
above his elbows and armed with a
long , slender knife , which was as
keen as a razor blade , cut deep Into

doing so ho must have struck an exposed -

The beast now heaved more terribly
and presently some of the heavy ropes
snapped asunder. With a supreme
effort the elephant rolled completely
over and regained his feet. With his
trunk curved outwitrd In the form of

another trumpeting cry and went

The circus day dawned hot and
clear , an ideal circus day at the out
set. It was early today estimated
that more people would be In Norfolk ,
this nftornoon thnn the city hns seen'
In many years.
Morning trains Into Norfolk , dou
bled In size , drew thousands of people
Into the city from the Donesteel nnd
the Long Pine lines , nnd others dur
ing the day nnd last night brought
othusands more from the west , the
Madison line , the Fremont line and
the Sioux City territory , although the
crowds from the Sioux City direction
were not so largo on account of the
appearance of the circus at thnt plnce
The nonestcel passenger train
brought seven coaches Into Norfolk ,
all packed full to the platforms , nnd
the early train from the west brought
so many people that the train could
not nccommodnto them nil In ono trip.
The coaches were completely filled
before the train reached Rattle Creek
and had to return to that town to
get those who could not bo accommo

mated thnt 100 came from Tllden , sev
enty-five from Meadow Grove and an
other 100 or 150 by train from Battle

Last night's main line Northwest
ern from the east brought many people
ple from Pllger and Stanton , who re
mained over two nights to see the
circus. "We only live once , " re
marked ono woman on the train , "and
we might as well see the circus > vhen
It comes around. "
13y 8 o'clock this morning all side
streets In Norfolk were lined for
blocks with the wagons of people
ivho had driven In early for the big
how. Livery stables did a big busi
Ituslness houses In town thnt hnd
contracts for selling provisions to the
Ircus people , did an over time busi-
less all night , manv of them hnvlnc
o work during the dark hours In
order to get ready those things which
bo circus hnd bought. Amonc the
ilg orders were for meats , broad , hay
and the like.
The busiest place in town this
morning was the show ground in the
vicinity of the breakfast tent , where
a meal for a thousand people was pre
pared out of doors in a very few min
ites. .
Norfolk hotels nnd restaurants
made extra arrangements for feeding
the multitude todny , and they found
thnt their plans were none too elab
orate . The fi o'clock trains this mornIng -
Ing pulled In with thousands of
strangers and they were all hungry ,
apparently , so that the first rush of
the day for the people serving meals
came early In the morning and there
was not much of a let up at any time
during the day. The Bonesteel
branch , the main lines from the west
and the east and the M. & O. poured
crowds Into the city , while the Union
Pacific last night was extra heavily
loaded and carried additional coach

Livery Stables So Full That Horses
are Turned Away.
The circus day crowds who came
in buggies and wagons were so large
that before noon the livery stables
were more than filled. Not only were
the stalls filled , but every available
inch of floor space was taken up with
horses that were tied to the floor.
Man at the Dining Tent Door Never
Saw a Performance Yet.
The circus Is so divided and sub
divided Into various distinct depart
ments that the man In the cook ten
knows little or nothing about the In
side of the show tent , and not hal
so much as the general public. The
ticket taker at the dining tent In the
Foropaugh-Sells show was asked In
regard to the location of the pen >

Dr. Charles A. McKim and Miss Mary
Matrau are Married Dr. William
F. Jone and Miss Martha McNIsh
are Married Kept Secret.
[ From WoilncFdnv's Dally. ]
A double wedding which came aa
i complete surprise to the friends
of the four contracting parties took
ilace in Trinity church at 8 o'clock
this morning when two Norfolk girls
of prominence became the brides of
two professional men well known
hroughout Nebraska and especially
.hroughout northern Nebraska. Miss
Mary Matrau of this city was married
to Dr. Charles A. McKIm , soon to
eave Norfolk for Lincoln , and Miss
Martha McNIsh was married to Dr.
William F. Jones , of McCook , Neb. ,
'ormerly of this place.
The marriage ceremonies were un-
innounced previously and save for '
cleverness on the part of members of
the Trinity Social guild , of which
! ioth brides are members , there might
liave been little known of the affair
until the bridal parties had left town
on noon trains. Learning , liowever ,
a few days ago of the prospective
weddings , girls of the guild had
[ ilannert to bo present at 10 o'clock
this morning , when the taking of the
vows were first scheduled. Later the
hour was changed to 8 o'clock , in or
der to defeat the purpose of the guild
members , but the shifting of the hour
merely whetted the enthusiasm of the
friends and when the two bridal par
ties arrived In carriages at the church
door soon after dawn todny , a dozen
young Indies were in nnxlous waiting.
"Now that you are here , " romnrked
one of the brides , "you might just as
well come In nnd see the execution , "
and the little crowd of friends en
tered the church to witness the two ,
The. rector , Rev. J. C. S. Wellls ,
performed the two pretty nnd im
pressive ceremonies that united the
two young couples In holy wedlock.
There were present , besides the guild
members , the immedinte family of
Miss Matrnu , her parents , Mr. and
Mrs. H. C. Matrau and her sisters ; j
and intimate friends of Miss McNIsh , ' f
Mr. nnd Mrs. John Koenigsteln. Miss ' ' f
