His recollection of the date when
he began is very distinct, for when he
came to Moline to start work he trav
eled from Muscatine to Davenport on
a train that bore a number of sol
diers who were returning from the
war. lieing then very young he took
close notice of these men who were
just from the scene of the great con
llict. The train was delayed by an
accident en-route and he remembers
marveling at the facility with which
the soldiers demolished a rail fence
besjde the track, built fires and pre
pared a frugal army repast.

THE BIQ SHOW COMING.
RlncUnjr Brother Exhibit the Rarest Col
lection of AnlmaU In the World.
The announcement that Ringling
Brothers vyorld's greatest shows will
exhibit in Rock Island Tuesday, July
7, is one that will be hailed with de
light by every man, woman and child
iu this city and tle surrounding coun
try. "All the world loves a circus,"
and this is especially true of the one
owned by Ringling Brothers, which
is transported from city to city in
five splendidly equipped trains
double-length cars in all which are
equal in size and carrying capacity
to 170 ordinary cars. The Ringling
Brothers, scrupulously honest In their
various systems of advertising, have
long made the unchallenged claim of
possessing the biggest, best and most
entertaining collection of high class
novelty features and rare wild ani
mals in all the world. This is especi
ally true of the mammoth menagerie,
which contains, by actual count, 108
cages, lairs, dens and tanks of beast,
fowl and aquatic species from every
jungle, plain and ocean on the face of
mother earth. Prominent among the
hundreds of perfect zoological speci
mens in this unrivaled department
are two beautiful giraffes, the last of
an almost extinct race. These ani
mals were secured at an enormous
cost and to the Ringling Brothers
they are priceless. Scientists and
students of natural history say they
are the lone living members of their
kind. In order to keep them alive in
the trying climate of the United
States they are given even more at
tention than a baby secures from its
proud and loving parents. The gi
raffes are transported in specially
constructed cages, the tops of which
can be raised and lowered at will.
Cages of this kind are indispensable
on account of the great height of the
animals. The walls of the cages are
thickly padded with curled hair and
fine wire springs to prevent possible
injury to the occupants. Their food
is prepared according to scientific
rules laid down by famous veterinar
ians. Anol tier leature oi tins colos
sal menagerie, one that is in keeping
with the progressiveness that is a
part of the Ringling Brothers' success
as amusement projectors, is "Baby
Boo," the only baby elephant bred.
born and successfully reared in cap
tivity iu. North America. "Baby Boo"
was born Jan. s, 1 '.;. is just 'M inches
high, weighs but 110 pounds, and is as
cute an 1 full of life as a fox terrier
puppy. She is the pride of the menag
erie attaches and with her fond moth
er is the pampered pet of the herd of
40 biir and little elephants carried by
Ringling Brothers this year. The 40
brutes, the largest in all animal crea
tion, are more than half of all the
elephants in captivity. The infant
member of this big herd is as fat and
as round as a butter ball fresh from
the churn, and greatly enjoys the at-,
tention showered upon her by the!
thousands of children who daily-visit
the big tent. The rhinoceros is an
other rare animal in this interesting
menagerie. It has been many years
since an animal t f this" kiml has been
exhibited in either a circus or a zo
ological collection, an'd the one in
Ringling Brothers' circus is said to be
the sole survivor of his kind. The gnu.
or horned horse, the eland, the yak
from the highlands of Thibet, the
monster hippopotamus. the vlack
vlarck from South Africa, the casso
wary, seals and sea lions, the pure
white Chines pea fowls, and the sa
cred cattle of India, are to be found
only in this menagerie, which also
contains magnificent specimens of
the lion, tiger, puma, hyena, buffalo
and panther, herds of camels. ."0 spe
cies of deer, and other animals and
birds from every quarter of the globe.
This collection of the flower of the
animal kingdom is worth a fortune
alone and stands alone in its magni
tude and diversity of subjects. Ring
ling Brothers present, also, a thrill
ing fil-horse act, :75 aerial, menage,
equestrian and acrobatic artists in
their circus performance. 40 famous
clowns, and the most lavish spectacu
lar production ever attempted, a su
perb representation of Jerusalem and
the Crusades, in which 1,200 charac
ters are shown. Two complete per
formances and a magnificent free
street pageant are given daily. Re
served seats can be secured as well as
general admission tickets at the Har
per House Pharmacy, at the same
price as charged on the show
grounds, on the day of the exhibition.
Ringling Brothers rtnploy over L
200 men, women and children. To
feed this great company of people
requires daily 1.000 pounds of bread,
l.l.'.O pounds of meat, "00 gallons of
coffee, and everything else in propor
tion. These supplies, as well as 15
tons of hay, 4.'i0 bushels of oats, and
G. bushels of corn for the horses, have
to be secured daily in the city where
the show is exhibiting.
The horse fair with Ringling Bros,
world's greatest shows embrnees 650
specimens of the finest breeding, and
is the most valuable collection ever
brought together for exhibitional
purposes. No other circus ever own
ed one-half so many. The fleet trotter,
fierce racer, graceful saddler, aristo
cratic driver, sturdy Percheron, Ara
bian stallion, Kentucky thorough
bredi, English cob, stylish coach and

tion. Tlint Throbblne Headache,
