    8.7 million species


    First, we don't even know how many types of animals there are in the world, let alone how many individual animals there are. Scientists have recently estimated that there are approximately 8.7 million species on Earth. They believe that 1-2 million of those species are animals.

    CIRCUS TRAIN WRECK AT CHENANGO FORKS

    The Cortland News, Friday, May 21, 1886.
    TRAIN ACCIDENT.
    Forepaugh’s Circus Train Broke in Two—One Man Dead.
    After leaving Binghamton and when near Chenango Forks last Saturday morning, in route to Cortland, the train conveying Forepaugh's Circus broke in two severely injuring several persons, and badly damaging some of the wagons belonging to the circus.
    The wrecked train was composed of an engine and about thirty large flat cars and on account of the heavy grade another engine had been detailed to help push the train up the heavy grade near Chenango Forks. After the "pusher" had been detached from the train a link broke, causing one of the cars to jump breaking down in the center and immediately several cars were piled up in an inextricable mass. Several of the canvass men were sleeping under the wagons on these cars and all were more or less injured, William Shaw, of Southbridge, Mass., and "Jack" Williams having many bones broken. The injured were taken to the Stowe House, at Binghamton, and attended to by physicians.
    Shaw died shortly after twelve o'clock Monday morning and his remains were sent to his home in Massachusetts. The others are in a fair way to recovery.
    As a consequence of the accident the circus train did not reach this place until after ten o'clock Saturday morning and before things could be straightened around it was too late for a street parade, thus disappointing an immense crowd from the out towns who had gathered to see the sights. It was after three o'clock before the large tent was erected and four [o’clock] ere the afternoon performance begun.
    On account of the short time, the performance was necessarily cut short but what was given was of the best.
