Ringling Bros. Create a Sensa
tion witli the I-KK'klmrt Ele
The announcement that Lockliart's
famous eofuedy elephants have been
secured by the noted Ringling Bros,
for their World's Greatest Shows this
season, has created a sensarion through
out the United States. The Lockhart
comedy elephants are universally
acknowledged to be the most marvelou 4-
ly traiued animal actors in the world.
These elejjhant comedians distinctly de
part from the old familiar order of ele
phant performers. They are not simply
"trained animals," they are veritable
animal actors, displaying as much good
sense and judgement, as great an ap
preciation of the humor of their several
roles and as sincere a desire to please
and entertain the public as any per
former in the great exhibition. Their
work is distinctly unconventional.
They present none of the stereotyped
tricks that constant repetition has famil
iarized with the public, but give a per
formance that is at once new, startling
and unique. Imagine a troupe of ele
phants, each attired in a costume befit
ing the character it portrays, present
ing a complete comply. The statement
seems beyond belief, and yet it is abso
lutely true. Perh'ips the most amusing
comedy presented by these elephant ac
tors is ona portraying the arrest, trial,
and conviction and incarceration of an
elephant for i ntoxication. The spectacle
of the clown elephant, rolling from side
to side, apparently in the sportive stage
of intoxication, is ludicrous in the ex
treme. In the midst of his revelry, the
policeman arrives, armed cap-a-pie with
a huge official helmet and jauntily
twirlinir a club in his trunk. The of
fending elephant attempts to escape,but
the policeman is too quick for him.
The offender i< seized by the ear. march
ed away to the magistrate's office, sol
emnly tried and sentenced by an ele
phant judge sitting in his judicial dig
nity upon his judicial bench, and finally
hurried away, a condemned prisoner, to
suffer dnrance in the elephant jail. In
addition to the several comedies present
ed by the Lockhart elephant comedians,
these wonderful animal entertainers
dance, march, perforin the most diffi
cult and intricate military maneuvers,
play npon musical intruments, present
complete pantomimes, and betray num
berless other evidences of their marvel
ously educated intelligence. Although
they can give an entire performance,
these wonderful elephant actors consti
tute only one of the hundreds of superb
features only to be seen with Ringling
Bros, famous exhibition, Which comes
in all its magnificent completeness to
Bntler May 18.

Your Stationary.
It is getting to be the proper thing
for farmeis as well as merchants and
other business men to have printed sta
tionary. And we can see no reason
why they should not take their proper
place among busirn .-,s men by" adopting
business methods in as many ways as
possible. There is a combination of
business and sentiment in giving yonr
farm a name like "Valley View Place,"
"Maple Spring Farm" "Hillside." or
something of the kind, as it lend-s a cer
tain dignity and individuality to the
place, an increased sens? of pride in the
proprietorship thereof, as well as addi
tonal importance in the eyes of produce
dealers or commission merchants wich
whom you are dealing. A small invest
ment in printed stationary giving your
residence and business, such as breed
ing of throtlghbred stock, the manfa>--
tniv of dairy produce, etc., might prove
of no slight advantage to you. as well
as giving a certain degree of satisfac
tion. And when you conclude to have
some note heads and envelopes printed
