Charles E. Fiebig Also Proves
Banana Plant Will Thrive
in Climate Here.-
Plants Brought Here from Florida
and Hawaiian Islands Seem to
Do Well In New Home.
Have you ever seen a real orange
tree not only in blossom but with
real Juicy oranges upon it? Ordinar
ily one has to go to the southland
for this privilege, but it is not a ne
cessity, as Charles 13. Fiebig, 833
seventeenth street, possesses a tree
on which real oranges are growing
or rather have grown, for out of a
dozen or so which ripened this year
only one remains on the tree. The
others have all been picked and eat
en and according to the fortunate
ones, they tasted wonderfully good.
Mr. Fiebig has an Interesting col
lection of trees from the south which
It Is generally thought would not pos
sibly grow and bear fruit in this
cold region. .Besides the orange tree
he has a fig tree, a banana tree and
a sago palm and several varieties
which bear no fruit, such as a red
cedar from the south.
Hare Been Her Long Time.
All of the trees were brought to
the north by Mr. Fiebig himself, who
takes an annual trip to the sunny
south. The orange tree came from
Florida 26 years ago, but it is not a
native of that state. Its home is in
the Hawaiian islands, where it is
known as the Otahaitl orange. The
tree Is a stunted variety which grows
scarcely four feet high and ,yet the
Fiebig tree has had as many as 26
oranges on it in one season, so many
that the branches had all to be prop
ped up in order to keep them from
breaking oft under the weight of the
fruit. The tree grows in an ordinary
large sized garden pot and it re
quires very little attention.
The banana tree was brought here
last year and if it does as well as
the orange free it will be a curiosity
indeed. The is now about four
feet high and is growing at the rate
of four inches a day. Before the

Mr. Fiebig hopes to get a real bunch
iK bananas from it.

A group of young ladies met at the Y.
M. C. A. yesterday evening to or
ganize a class which is to continue
for some weeks for the purpose of
training teachers for boys' bible class

meeting last night was merely for
organization and the first study will
be taken up next Tuesday evening.

and the study Is to be from 7 to 7:45
each Tuesday evening.
Tomorrow morning the boys who

will have an outing, leaving the
building at 10 o'clock, and returning
by dinner time. Although the fun
Is planned to take but a short time,
the boys will find It enjoyable while

and seriously injured, there being three
places on his face where the teeth of
the canine sank into the flesh. Mr.
Warner was walking on Fifth avenue
between Twenty-seventh and Twenty
eighth streets when the dog suddenly
appeared. Without warning it sprang
at Mr. Warner and tried to get at his
throat. The victim turned his head in
time to prevent this, however, and the

and then he went at once to receive

This morning he entered complaint

In order to dispose of as much stock as we possibly can during the month of July, so as not to carry any stock over till next season, we
have gone about it in a business like manner. We number among our stocks odd lots of the finest suits from makers like Hart, Schaffner
& Marx, Society Brand and others. We have too many of these high grade suits on hand. To clean up these garments we have made a-few
interesting prices that men and young men who "know" what's what will quickly take advantage of. - The prices tell the story better than
we can. Just note.
Handmade, hand finished, snappj- and conservative models in
Hart, Schaffner & Marx and Society brand, equal to custom
tailored garments, specially low priced,
We offer you suits in the season's newest weaves and patterns
suits that will "stand up" under the hard usage usually
given this time of the year.
CIRCUS DAY TOMORROW IS .A
BIG EVENT IN MOLINE HISTORY
Moline literally is to take a day off

its history the coming of the first
big circus to that city, Barnum &
Bailey's "greatest on earth" will be
In previous years the Barnum &
Bailey show has played Rock Island
and Davenport alternate years, and
Ringlings have done likewise. Mo
line was never considered as a location.
However, this year the Barnum &
Bailey management learned that
Moline never had entertained at
home a really big circus. Here was
an opportunity to make history for
the city, and it was decided that the
big show should play there this
ine event will be observed by a
general suspension of business in the
city, practically all of the shops hav
ing agreed to shut down at noon.
Today the circus is showing In La
Salle, and comes here upon its own

els, ring horses, zebra and what the
circus folks term the "led" stock. The
earlier trains bring the tentage, cook
house, draught horses, cages and the
working force. Breakfast over the
work of getting out the street parade
will be on. This is going to be "some
parade" if we can believe the publicity
man. It will be some two miles long
and be a fitting pTelude to the per
