Ono of the most brutal fights whlcl
over occurred In this city took placoyos
turd ay afternoon on Seventh street , ii
front of the Datimark Ijouso. The par
llclpants were John Kelly , alias Downs
n well-known bully in that part of town
and Chris Heed , a German. It floonv
that Ih6 two men have lOtig harbored ;
grudge ngainst each other , and whci
they met yesterday hot words ensued
Kelly nindo a pass at Rood , when tin
latter gave him a shove knocking hin
into a ( loop ditoh half filled with watei
which runs in front of the Danmarl
house. Uecd then jumped down on tot
of his antagonist , and both fell into tin
water , which completely covered thorn
While down the iium clinched and strug
gird until they were both obliged to risi
to keep from being drowned. Once 01
their feist , tlio light was renewed , tin
men standing up to their knees in watei
nnd mud. IJy this time a largi
crowd had gathered " to witnes !
the contest. Wicked blows were inter
changed for a few minutes , when Kellj
suddenly closed on Heed , throw his arm ;
about his neck , and inserted his teeth ii
his opponent's ear. Holh men struggle !
fiercely-ill each others embrace , but Hoot
managed to break Kelly's hold , althougl
in doing so ho lost bis car. on which Kwlh
kept , a lirm hold with his li-oth. Wher
bo saw bis ear was gone , Heed becami
furious and swore bo would lay Kollj
put. The men squared themselves and i
knock-down light occurred. As they tin
both of muscular build the blows they delivered
livered wore not. light ones , both being
knocked oil' their feet several times
After the fight had continued" for nearlj
: m hour , Heed hit Kelly a frightful blow
in the neck , fairly paraly/.ing him. Hi
foil into the water and with great dilli-
culty succeeded in regaining his feet
When ho arose Hood asked him if ho had
bad enough , but ho was almost too weal ;
to reply and simply nodded his head.
The moil wore then assisted out of the
ditch by bystanders. They were botli
severely punished and presented a pit !
able appearance. Tlioir faces wore
bruised and bleeding , their clothing torn ,
and their whole bodies covcnfd witli mud
and slime. With the help of friends thoj
were taken to Iho river bank nnd thor
oughly washed and their wounds dressed
after a fashion. Reed will bo disligureil
for life , as the greater part of his ear waf
lost in tlio water and Idth at tlio bottom
of tlio ditch where the fight occurred.
Both men were arrested later in the
day and taken to police headquarters ,
Seed was released after a short confine ,
moht on his own rccognixanco , but Kollj
was hold. It is said that the men have
become reconciled and shook hands on
the termination of the fight.
Trinity cathedral was well filled last
night , oh-liio occasion of the first appoar-
tvnco lioro of the Rev. Mr. liootli , the rec
tor-elect of the new All Saints church , to
bo erected in West Omaha. His sermon
was a powerful , eloquent exposition of
the fourth verso of the twenty-eighth
chapter of Mark : "For the earth bringetli
forth fruit of herself : lirst the blade , then
the ear , after that the full corn in the
oar. "
"This verso , "said the speaker , "illus
trates thu growth of tlio Kingdom of God.
This Kingdom is not an invisible thing ,
but a living , visible society , and we can
witness its growth ami development.
All through the gospels , Christ compares
it to real substantial things , as in the
parable of the tree , tlio corn , the mustard
Seed. etc.
"Iho Savior , when ho formed the
church on earth , formed not a mere ab
straction , but a real living society , not ,
of course , fully developed in all its parts ,
but ready for growth. Ho drew th'e great
liucs-of tlio church , and what bo lett un
done , he commissioned the apostles to do.
Thus we are to believe two things that
what Christ ordained is right and un
changeable , and that Ids Kingdom the
church on earth is of visible , tangible
"Tins'growth of the church is natural.
It Is like the growth of seed , slow but
Steady in development. " The speaker
then went on to compare the growth of
the small' , ' feeble oak with that of the
church. " And finally the church mili
tant develops into the church triumph-
tint the church victorious becomes the
church nt rest. "
"It is to bo remembered that these re
marks concerning the Kingdom of God
apply particularly to the growth
ot the Christian church , in early
days. " The reverend gentleman then
portrayed thogrowthof the early church ,
the martyrdom of the disciples , the warfare -
faro against the apostles and their
teachings. " "Tho period of the infancy
of the church was the period of her
martyrdom. What wonderful life there
must have boon in the organization that
it diil not iliol What strength that it did
not fall ! Hut finally , like the sun comes
from behind the clouds , so thu church
emerged from the night of its martyrdom
to shed glory over alt the earth ,
f'Tio | growth , of the church means the
'growth of the knowledge of Christ In the
minds of men the development of
the souls of the disciples. As tlio early
church grpy\.nhd thrived under tribula
tion , so-tho'soul ' every n-rows to an < > x-
rrnndod life under trn h and sorrows.
The soul must bo strengdumed with spir
itual food. As you feed your bodies , so
must you minister to your spiritual life.
If you do not this , the result is moral hiii-
. . eloquent
exhortation to hta hearers , "How beauti
ful Is this verse , thu text of my sermon ,
in itaVimplicwitipa to the spiritual life.
The blade , that is our mortal earthly llfo ,

The benefit given Dan J. Ross , the
noted sprinter , at llascall's park yester
day afternoon wis : very successful , about
1,000 people being present to witness tin ;
excellent programme of sports which hail
boon arranged. The day was a beautiful
one , and the races were exciting and
great interest was manifested in tlio re
sults of the various contests. Tlio lirst
thing on the programme was putting the
shot , which resulted in a victory for.John
Turnbull , llomor Kirk second. The KM-
yard race , open to all , best three in live
heats , was won by W. A. Gregg , the Iowa
champion. It was a splendid raeo , the
best time made being 10J seconds. J.
McClary won two heats , but Gregg cap
tured the other three. The special mutch
race , 100 yards , was won by Homer
Kirk , Charles Bloom second ; time , 11
seconds. The standing broad jump re
sulted in favor of A. J. MoFarland , col
ored , the distance covered being U feet ,
71 inches , beating V. Gasnior by one inch.
The live-mile handicap race tor a
of $30 was the event of the day. Jan. J.
Koss conceded a quarter-mile start to
Charles Johnson , ot Kansas , and W. A.
Gregg , of Iowa. Considerable money
was wagered on the result , Hess being
the favorite. From tliostart _ ho gradu
ally closed up tho" instance between him-
s"lf and his two competitors , and afti r
running- three miles passed Johnson , and
at throe and a half miles forged ahead of
Gregg. The Iowa man made a desperate
ell'ort to win , but was to much for
him , winning the race in 20 minutes and
4'J seconds. Koss' backers were jubilant
over his success , and everybody voted
the race a fair and square contest.
Will Bibbs , a colored barber , was as
saulted and severely pounded by a gang
of toughs at the foot of Douglas street
about 12:30 : The whole party
had been drinking beer and having a
general carousal , when for seine reason
they became infuriated at Bibbs. There
were eight or ton in the party and they
succeeded in pretty thoroughly using up
tlio colored man. JIo , however , made a
break and ran up the street , the others
following him until they mot the watch
man at the lumber yards. ! > ibbs called
for help and the watchman drew his re
volver and ordered the men back. They
didn't wait for further commands , but
scattered quickly and ran in different di
rections. One of the gang was caught by
a policeman and taken to headquarters.
The rest of them are known and war
rants will probably bo issued for their ar
rest. _ _

The man confidentially informed me
that lie was in search of his runaway wife
and did iiot know exactly whore she
lived , but it was somewhere within foui
blocks of the corner where ho had alight
cd from the car. The story he told was :
strange one. For years he bad livei
happuy with his wife , and three child rot
had becji born to them , But one day a
handsomer man came along , his wife became -
came infatuated with the stranger , am
an elopement followed , tlio recreant wift
taking tlio children with her. That was- -
years ago , and from the time she disap
peared until two weeks previous her bus

however , favored him , and he suceoedui :

for his wife and children , and made over )
endeavor to find them.
ins ritir.Nu's STOUV.
His first news from his truant wife was
received from a former friend whom lit
met in the western wilds. Ills friend in
formed him that while passing through
Omaha ho had met the lady. The cir
cumstances of the meeting wore poculiai
and sad. Ho said lie was walking along
the streets of tile city when he sawn
funeral procession. Jt was a lowly one ,
and only one carriage folio wed the hearse.
Jn that carriage- caught a glimpse of a
iady whom ' he thought was the
woman who had deserted her
husband his ' friend. Ho immedi
ately niadu tip1 his mind to follow the
carriage to its'destination and sec if lie
could verify his surmises. Ho acted on
the impulse , and at the grave positively
identified the woman as the missing wife ,
lie made himself known to her , and
from her lips 'learned the story of her
life since leaving her husband.
The man film had clopod with was a
certain .John Smith. Together they came
to Omaha and settled down as man and
wife. At lirst everything was lovely , but
finally misfortune- and poverty overtook
them , and they led a precarious exist
ence. Finally Mr. Smith died , and she
was oven then attending his funeral.
Slie seemed to regret her rash act which
had separated her from her husband ,
and was willing to ask his forgiveness.
As soon as possible after hear
ing of his wife s whereabouts , the
h'usband concluded to go to her in
her distress and oiler to take
her back and provide for her. Ho had
reached Omaha that day , and expected
soon to again clasp his long lost wife to
his bosom and forgive and forget the
The reporter had listened to the nbova
story with considerable , and
when the gontiuman stopped to take
breath ho urged him lo go on to a fmisli.
But the gentleman informed him that so
far as ho was concerned the story was
told. Ho loft the gentleman on tlio cor
ner , just starting in search of hia wife ,
and had not seen him since.
TUB FAOTo lii : < JIN.
The reporter , however , thought the
story too good a one to end thus abruptly ,
and concluded to make still further in
vestigations. The woman went by the
name of Smith , she lived within four
blocks of a certain corner , her husband
had just died , she had throe childron.
All those points the newspaperman made
note of , and concluded it would be an
easy matter to work up. It was still
cany in the afternoon , nnd after wading
through about five pages of Smiths in
the directory , tlio reporter located a num
ber of fain lies of that name who lived in
the suspected vivinity. Then ho started
out on nis tour of inquiry.
Tie reached the designated corner and
made a break for the nearest Smith.
Children were playing on the veranda
when the reporter boldly entered the
front gatu. "Does Mr. Smith live hero ? "
was the Inquiry addressed to the small
specimens of humanity. The reply of
"yes11 settled the matter. If Mr. Smith alive ho was not the one the reporter
wanted to soe. At the next house the re
porter visited his knock was answered
by a lady who acknowledged that she
was Mrs. Smith. But when the reporter
asked if her husband had recently died
she uttered a little shriek nnd exclaimed ;
"Oh , nvy-iio ; ho just loft mo a few min
utes ago , " Several other calls wore fhoii
made on viu-ioo * families of Smiths ,
but not a Smith ! wus found who filled the
reporter's billie IIy the time a half-do/.on
calls had bci4i > made the afternoon was
ended and duykmtss Intervened. After a
short rest and rofjvshmont.s the reporter

on in scareh of the moror of houses. A
Inst the place was reached , mi alarn

slumber. Ho was only half awake , bit
he answered the inquiries propounded ti
him. Ho know Mrs. Smith ; ho niorei
the house she formerly lived In , but jus
where she moved to ho could not toll
llu knew a man who did know , however
but ho lived throe or four miles out It
tlio country. As near as ho could tell
the woman now lived in a certain local
ity , which he mentioned.

At the mention of the locality the re
porter brightened up. It was in tin
same neighborhood within four block :
of the designated corner in which hi
had conducted his search in the after
noon. He resolved to make one last des
nerato ell'ort to find the undiscoverot
Mrs. Smith , A cab was called Into re
quisition nnd the above locnllty win
again vtalkul. Moro Smiths were ills
covered , pulled out of their beds , cato
chised , and then left to wonder what. I
all mount. But the right Mrs. Join
Smith failed to iiialnriall/.o. At last
weary , disgusted , and heartsick , the r
porter reluctantly abandoned the floarol
and relumed to the olllco , nothing no
complished and a big paper to fill will
That there was a big sensation in tin
matter the reporter never for nn instant
doubted. Ho , therefore , arose early the
next morning and renewed the search
The man who know where Mrs. Smitl :
had moved to was found , and told tin
reporter all about it. Slio hud routed u
hoitso just four blocks from the cornel
which had been taken as a starling point
in the search , and was living there with
her children. With a joyous heart and n
light step tlio reporter quickly reached
the place , knocked at the door and was
admitted. Mrs. Smith was there and st
were the children. The visitor had hit
questions all cut and dried , and pro
ceeded to propound them. And this is
what he found :
Mrs. Smith's husband was dead. Sin
had been married before. She had lefl
her first husband. She had taken tin
children. Jhitsho did not etopo. She had
been divorced. Her lirst husband know
where she was , all the time , and often
visited the children. He resided only a
few miles out Of the city. Ho was not
rich. lie did not want her to come and
live with him again. And the only foitiv
dation for the story was that ho had been
unable , just like the reporter , to find
where she had moved to when her former
place of residence was taken to anolliei
part of the city.

Startling Itovclatlons of Grave Yard
Desecration by Women.
Mrs. Rebecca Arnstrong , a woman liv
ing in the neighborhood of Prospect Hill ,
was Saturday morning arrested on the
complaint of C. A. Baldwin for violating
property in the cemetery. She waived
examination and was bound over to tlio
district court in the sum of § 300 , which
bail she furnished. The woman is tlio
widow of George Armstrong who was
bayoneted to deatli by a militiaman dur
ing the riots of ' 83.
This case develops some facts sensa
tional to a startling degree.
For tlio past few months Prospect Hill
cemetery has been subjected to a course
of vandalism which has well nigh robbed
the premises of their beauty. Some
liouds with a persistency worthy of bettor
application have instituted a system of
plunder and willful destruction worse
than ghoulish in its conception and inex
pressibly liondish in its execution. Flow
ers have boon cut by the wholesale ,
rare blossoming plants and ornamental
shrubbery uprooted and carried away or
crushed and trampled under foot. Cu
pidity , however , seemed the prominent
impulse , as the amount of evidently wain-
ton destruction did not compare with the
total abstraction of plants which oc
curred repeatedly.
Sickened with the persistent desecra
tion of the soil which the dead enshrines
before all men of common sensibilities , a
number of citi/ens conjoined to ferret
out and punish the guilt.y parties ,
under the statute so providing. A
detective was employed at liberal
recompense to watch tlio lots of those
gentlemen , and the results of his work
are almost incredible. It hud been
thought that the outrages were com
mitted by parties necessarily of a low
order of intellect , but the ofiaraeti-r of
the culprits whom the detectives caught
in the .act struck ama/.ement to the van
dal hunters. How could a lady of
notably high standing , wealth and in-
iluence be arraigned on a charge of
pravoynrd vandalism ? What court or
iury would entertain against her so
loinous an accusation t And yet in
pushing the prosecution that is what the
gentlemen were called upon to do.
i'hn detective from his place of
ambush saw upon repeated occa
sions ladies alight from their carriage
and help themselves to Ilowers
from the graves and lots with n de
liberation that was astounding. De
tection and roprovnl produced
varying results. Some wept in
humiliation , while others unmoved by
Hhamo ilc\y into nn/or and upbraided the
detective in the roundest terms. Mean
while there were clever fiends who ad
vised themselves of the secret service at
work and ehoho the night and favorable
odcasions for their depredations In a
Uiaiincr which defied defection.
At last it was determined to arrest the
party guilty of the first violation , whether'
it bo man , woman or child , without m-
gird to race , station , color or other char
acteristic. Mrs , Armstrong placed herself -
self in the fatal situation and will bo
called into court tonnsworfor heroH'imsa.
There can bo but little doubt that the
ttulloH anoiipmouHly figuring in thoabovo
relation of facts , have been guilty
through lack of consideration and shcor
giioranco of the nature of their perform
ances. It is to bo hoped this publication
will provo a warning against further re-
Mirrences of this worst form of vandal-

Clurko Uros.&Co. , the well-known 1m
porters ti nil jobbers in teas , collVes , tun
spiei's , are now pormunontly located ii
thi'lr new building nt 1411 and 141(1 ( Hm
noy street , and in order to the botto
coinnuunornte tlio taking up of tlioi
present quarters the Hr.r. has scon lit t <
give u liriL-C sketch of their business tun
surroundings ,
Tlio building which they occupy wa
conslruoted by thorn for their own i-spcc
ial business. They were compelled to di
this as their former place on Dougla
street , on account of the rapidly inoreas
ing trndo which , by their excellent jrootl ,
and low prices , they have hold
wns entirely too small. Aoordlngly tluv
have built tlio handsome four-story brio !
on Hartley , and use every lloor as well a
the largo basement. To the loft of tin
front entrance is ono of the most , beaut !
fully arranged olllces ever constructed it
this city. The east , half of the first Iloo
nnd extending half the length of ( hi
building is devoted to this purpose. Tin
painters , decorators , gas litters ant
plumbers all seem to have vied with oaul
other in doing the most taseful work. 1
is a beauty , and thn desks , sample oases
tables , olc. , built to match the ohcrr
finish of tlio olllco , add not i
little to its general handsome tip
pearaneo. The largo vaults , lei
let room , water oloset.s , etc. , an
in the rear right hand corner of tin
olllco and are so systematically arrange !
that instead of detracting from , they tnlil
to , the beauty of the elegant olliees ,
The front part of the ollleos is devoted ti
the display of samples , whore is n largi
glass case , containing samples of teas
spices , llnvoring extracts , linking pow
iler.s , etc. , us well as a full line of sam
ples of green and roasted coH'uos , and al
the necessary apparatus for drawing ant
testing of teas whiuh the firm handle.
Stepping from thii olllco one is con
fronted with probably the largest pllo ol
oofl'co over seen in ono place , sack tipoi :

half of the entire lirfct lloor , not. dovoteil

imported by Clarke" Hros. & Co. an
Java , Aloe-tea , Maracaibo , Guatemala
Mexican , Ponberry , Costa Hica , Caracas ,
Santos wid Hio. As for teas millieo it U
bay < faat this house carries , lnv
yond a ipteation of a doubt , tin
largest line of every well-known brand
in use. A reporter was shown a line lim
of samples ot teas from Japan , their own
importation , a carload of which will ar
rive in a few days.

of which mention will bo made furthei
on. Two large shipping doors aflbrd ar.
easy exit to the alley , where wagons art
constantly being loaded with goods foi
all parts of the western country. Ever.y
pound of { roods arriving or leaving tin
shipping doors has to pass over largi
scales , which insures accuracy in then
Tlio second floor is reached by eilhet
the stairs or Iho large hydraulic freight
elevator at the rear of the olliccs. Hero
is the extract room , where the most skill
ful chemist west of Now York and his
assistants are over busy compounding
and packing all kinds and grades of Ha-
voring extracts. In the roar of this de
partment comes the blueing room , where
ibis article is manufactured. The outfit
hi this room , like all other departments ,
is complete in every detail , having
the necessary tanks , bottle fillers ,
troughs for washing bottles , etc.
Next comes the packing room and order
department , in which : m goods kept in
stock are made ready for shipment. A
large force of boys and girls are continu
ally employed in tiiis room in putting up
packages of "Clarke's Aurora" and
' 'Clarke'3Kod , Cross" brands ol coll'co.
_ The third lloor is devoted almost en
tirely to .spices and baking powders , and
on lirst thought it looks as if there is
onotigh of botli on tliis'one floor to supply
the whole western country for years to
come , but such is not the case , us the
stock is being constantly replenished.
The demand for Clarke Bros. & CD'S.
goods of all kinds is indeed wonderful.
All .lio boxes , cans and labels used by
this company are stored on the fourth
floor , which has the appearance of a
small establishment in its own right.
in the basement are stored hundreds of
thousands of empty bottles which are
destined to contain the blueing and flav
oring extracts manufactured by this es
Now comes the most important and
probably the most interesting feature of
this mammoth concern , that is , the ma
chinery , which has its origin in the roar
portion of the basement , where is seen
the motive power , a sixty horse-power
engine , which by the usual means , bull
ing , operates the various pieces of ma
chinery on the st'coiid and third floors ,
The roasting room on the second floor m
the rear of the main building , is built
on iron girders , is fire proof and en
tirely indopondentof thorostof the build
ing lor support. Horn is the largu roast
ing and spieo department , which is in the
hands of an eastern gentleman
who has spent over thirty
years in the business. The
room contains , among other machinery ,
coolers , coflee grinders , sitters and roast
ers , which have u capacity of turning out
a half carload of collee daily , rousted to
perfection , In the machinery depart
ment , on the next lloor directly uuovo
tnis , m another lire-proof room are tlio
b iking powder mixers and sifters , also
tie root mills , spice mills and sifters ,
which turn out daily about ! iM)0 ( ) pounds
of spices. Without doubt this firm can
boast , and no fear of contradiction , of
the linost and iniul thoroughly equipped
spice mill to bo found anywhere in the
west. In fact they have built their own
building in order -uoeoniodittu all their
new and latest improved machinery ,
which was put up by Mr. K V. iMvis ,
the well-known machinist and proprietor
of the Novelty works , who , with a num
ber of his skilled mechanic , gave the
work his own personal attention.
All this and much more was shown ti
DICK man , through the kindly indulgence
of one of the lirm , Mr. Willis K. Clarke ,
who estimated that they had put In some
thing oversow worth of IIKW umchli ory
since moving to their new placL'l no
linn make a specialty of the sale of their
own goods , , consisting of the largest
steely of teas and coll'eos anywhere in the
west , spices , baking powders , flavoring
extracts , laundry blue and last but not
least , an eli'gantlinnof Key West invars ,
und their tr.-ido extends all ov r Nebras
ka , Western Iowa , Northern Missouri
and as far ai Salt Lake City , Utah.
About eighteen men are constantly cm-
ployed , besides the Loy.s and girls work
ing on package goods.
The linn consists of three of Omaha's
