The Death of Jumbo the Elephant ....

Did you know ..... P.T. Barnum's prize elephant Jumbo was killed September 15, 1885, crossing railroad tracks in St. Thomas, Ontario. The collision derailed the train, and 150 people were required to haul the elephant's body up an embankment.

Jumbo's death was a great loss to Barnum's show, but the loss was somewhat mitigated when both the taxidermied hide of the beast and its skeleton were exhibited together.

Vital statistics: height 11.5 feet, weight 6.5 tons, age 24

I guess it all comes down to money ....

That says something exceedingly impressive thither the fettle of the ethical life: that it is based on a conviction in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a sparkler, something rather feeble, but whose extremely special attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
