This is Daisy, Dixie and Myrtle appearing on the race track at some Punkin 'Fair. Probably presented by Mr. and Mrs. Vernon "Slim" Walker. This act was sold to Russell Bros. Circus in 1941.

The Cole & Walters elephants always were kept at the Kelly-Miller winters down the road. Here we see "Ringling Jess", "Gollmar Daisy" and "Wm. P. Hall Mabel" in rehearsal with the KM elephants in the background.

Another elephant had chewed the end of her tail off and she used the remaining part like a black-jack. You had to be careful cleaning up behind her.
