<div>The Place where Jumbo was stolen at midnight</div>
<div>IRONVILLE 9:30 A.M.</div><div><br></div><div>Elephant passed through here at five in the morning. Some say he went east some say west, some north, some south – but all say they did not wait to notice, particularly. He killed a horse. Killed it with his trunk; from style of blow, think he struck it left-handed. From position in which horse lies, think elephant traveled northward along line Berkley Railway.</div><div><br></div>
<div>SAGE CORNERS 10:30 A.M.</div><div><br></div><div>Elephant passed through here at 8.15. All escaped from the town but a policeman. Apparently elephant did not strike at policeman, but at the lamp-post.</div><div><br></div>
<div>GLOVER'S 11:15 A.M.</div><div><br></div><div><span>Elephant passed through three-quarters of an hour ago. The anti-temperance mass-meeting was in session; he put his trunk in at a window and washed it out with water from cistern. Some swallowed it since dead; several drowned. Whole region for many miles around in terror.</span></div>
<div>HOGANSPORT 12:19 A.M.</div><div><br></div><div>Elephant passed through half an hour ago, creating wildest fright and excitement. Elephant raged around streets; two plumbers going by, killed one, other escaped.</div><div><br></div>
<div>BOLIVIA 12:50 A.M.</div><div><br></div><div>Elephant arrived here from the south and passed through toward the forest at 11.50, dispersing a funeral on the way. Citizens fired some small cannon-balls into him, and they fled. Burke is dead. Elephant turned and shadowed to the woods, making tremendous speed. Meantime, the elephant has disappeared again.</div>
<div>Baxter Center 2:15 P.M.</div><div><br></div><div>Elephant been here, plastered over with circus-bills, any broke up a revival, striking down and damaging many who were on the point of entering upon a better life. Citizens penned him up and established a guard. When Detective Brown and arrived, some time after, he entered inclosure and proceeded to identify elephant by photograph and description. All masks tallied exactly except one, which he could not see – the boil-scar under armpit. To make sure, Brown crept under to look, and was immediately brained – that is, head crushed and destroyed, though nothing issued from debris. All fled so did elephant, striking right and left with much effect. He escaped, but left bold blood-track from cannon-wounds. Rediscovery certain. He broke southward, through a dense forest.</div>
