Tribune photo engraving nature notes by George Cline when the circus came to town this week it brought to Tipton county the first elephants that have been Here for some time. These beasts like nearly All elephants that Are in Captivity were from Asia As shown by their concave foreheads and relatively Small ears. There Are Only two species of elephants in the world the other being the african which has great lopping ears and convex foreheads bulging outward. African elephants Are rarely taken alive because their dispositions Are not Good and they do not take Well to domestication. The tusks of an elephant Are his two upper front death incisors which Are in Mously developed. They have no lower front Teeth All their other Teeth being very Large Grinders or molars. The trunk on an elephant is really his nose elongated beyond that of any other mammal. Since he cannot eat and drink As most animals do because of his tusks he must water in his trunk and squirt it into his Mouth. They Are strictly vegetarians and usually the food also is placed in the Mouth with the trunk. The trunk of an elephant is said to be the most efficient appendage possessed by any mammal. It can pick up a pin or lift a heavy log. The five elephants at the circus were All females they being More docile and More amenable to training. None of them had tusks for the reason that they had been de tucked. This was to prevent their injuring each other and then it it thought that without tusks they realize their impotency and have an inferiority Complex which prevents them from Demontra Tine. The two camels that the circus had were arabian camels one hum which Are usually called Dro medaries. They Are used mostly for Burden carrying while the two humped camels Are better for Riding. The Llamas of course were from South America. And speaking of bobcats again will say that for Many years i have had a feeling that i would someday see a Bobcat in my Woods probably because that would be a Good place for one. There was a Deer out there several years ago and Klinker and i hunted that Woods for a Mountain lion a few years Back but fortunately did t find one. A neighbor had said that he had twice seen the lion in his Woods and he was a Man who stayed sober and did not Tell lies. There Are Many tame cats in Tipton county that have gone wild. We always called these Woods cats and they Are fully As destructive to wild life As bobcats would be. Several years ago i was hauling in some Wood that had been previously Cut and stacked against a log in the Woods and As i reached Down to pick up a stick of Wood a big Woods cat went out like a Streak of lightning and scared me half to death. The last one of these that i killed was a very Large tomcat that was nearly White. He chewed the ears off an old pussycat that continued in Page 4 Mother watches husband child Burn to death by United press International a Young Mother watched helplessly today As her husband and 2-year-old daughter burned to death in a car on interstate 465 Southwest of Indianapolis.

United press International Washington up gov. William Scranton faces the ticklish task of luring National convention delegates off the Goldwater bandwagon if he is to come close to winning the gop presidential nomination. Sen. Barry Goldwater already has too Many delegates lined up to be denied the nomination unless a sizeable number can be persuaded or frightened into breaking away from him. It is this process which will be hazardous for Scranton. It would do him Little Good to upset Goldwater and win the gop nomination if in so doing he alienated most of the senator s supporters. They might then decide to sit out the election and the gop needs All the workers it can get. Move comes late Scranton admitted that the hour was late when he announced Friday that he was a candidate for the nomination.

Branigin of Lafayette Friday accepted the party s nomination for governor of Indiana. The state s labor leaders had been critical of Branigin prior to Friday s democratic state convention because he had refused to flatly Call for a repeal of the state s 2 per cent sales tax.

Dallas Sells state Al Cio president told up he wanted to talk with Roger before making a Flat endorsement of his candidacy. Sells said our Only Basic difference with Branigin has been taxes and we want to go into conversation with him on this he indicated Branigin would draw labor s Strong endorsement if he would make the sales tax and the Gross income tax Campaign issues this fall.

The labor Boss expressed pleasure with the labor supported candidates whom the democrats slated on their state ticket particularly state rep. Robert Rock of Anderson chosen As the party s lieutenant governor nominee. Brannigan said he recognized labor As a member of the democrats household in his Appeal for support from the group.
