Til — IIH W. Third St. Wood River Store at Corner of Ferguson *nd Wood River Ave. Dial 4-1523 JKRSKYV1I.LE. — Elmer, the coon, is an interesting example of just how intelligent a pet coon may be. Elmer is owned by Edward Heard of East Carpenter Street and is being used at the moment for training coon dops. Beard operates a blacksmith shop near his home, and Elmer, a i times, is tnken from his quarters in a shed at the rear of the shop and permitted the range of the vicinity. Elmer follows Beard about with all the actions of a dog. He will climb a tree at Beard's command and when told to "come down, Elmer, let's go," will come tumbling down the tree. Beard obtained Elmer early last spring when he found him in a Jersey woodland. The young coon had met with some unexplainable accident, and had a broken leg. Beard brought the coon to his shop and set the leg and made a splint and taped it to keep the fracture in place. The bond knitted and in a few weeks Elmer was about his business as well as a young coon might be. Elmer has an inclination, however, to stray from the straight and narrow path of coon behavior. When a lighted cigarette is discarded in the presence of El mer, .he will make a quick move to pick up the cigarette. "I've been warned by several of my friends," stated Beard Monday afternoon, "that Elmer will be come a cigarette chain smoker if I'm not careful of him."
