Strawn , formerly general pas senger agent of thr Rock Island , is in the citv. Ho came hero to confer with the Union Pacitic ollieials about the introduc tion on this line of a now contrivance which lie ha invented for draining out the scaly deposits in locomotive boilers. Mr. S. claims that this patent is most suc cessful in operation , and if all expc-ri mcnts are satisfactory it will doubtless be adopted by the Union Pacific. Yesterday a gang of North Omaha roughs headed by L-rank Kuanp , assault ed an old man named S. II. Plum. Offi cer James , of the Law and Order League , happened along at the time , and inert- fered in behalf of the old man , when the roughs set upon him and drove him off.

It is to 1)O Located Near Bellovuc I tt The rifle range to be used by the sol- dicro of tliis department in their annual competition tins summer hasat Icngtli been located. The bite was selected b } Col. Henry and is north of Bcllevue , in si cleared grove of timber on a high blull overlooking the river , and about oOC yards from the railroad station the prop erty for the most part belonging to II. T Clark , of this city. It is a lovely place for a camp , high and dry , favored will : noel .south winds and shade , with fish , ing near at hand. There arc six trains u day going to and roturninir from Belle- vuc , giving our citizens an opportunity to see the rillo practice ami .spend a pleas suit day in the woods , and affording the tjoys in blue an easy opportunity to got to Omaha for the evening , returning foi work early next morning. The competi tion for prizes takes place in August and wjll doubtless bo largely attended. There will be skirmish firing on the new raugi from time to time , with the general prsic- tico firing from Juno until October. In speaking of the now range to-day , Colonel Henry said : "No one can complain of danger , for there arc nc houses within miles in the direction ol lire. The range for troops coming is more accessible by railroad thanl-orl Omaha , \vhcro men had to bo hauled by wagons. General Crook , for his in tores ! in this matter in keeping the practice st near Omaha , and making it attractive foi citizens , is to bo congratulated , as alsc Mr. II. T. Clark , in selecting this pleas ant locality for the rango. It is a .singu lar fact that this place selected for targe ! practice ot the United States troops was cleaned out years ago by Indians for ( nil tivation and has not since been used.

Such proceedings will lead to i review of the evidence on which Judge Aylcsworth held her , and it is cxpectci that some legal questions may arise wldul may result in setting the woman free Such will be the ultempt. The Arkansas It was intended to give the Arkansa : editorial excursionists a handsome rccup ( ion lnOniiha ; , and arrangements wen being carried out with that cud in view but the arrival of the gentlemen yesterday instead of on Friday has spoiled the pro grainino.

' OUR BREAD IN DANGER. The Alarming Increase in Baking Pow der Adulterations. Among recent Important discoveries by the food analysis Is lliat by Prof. MOTT , U. S. Government Chomlst , of large amounts of llmo and alum In the cheap baking powders. It is a startling fact that of over one hundred different brands of baking powder so far analyzed , comprising all those sold in this vicinity , not one with the single exception of Royal Baking Powder was found free from both lime ami alum. The use of alum is lo produce a cheap baking powder. It costs less -than two cents a pound , whereas pure cream of larlor cosls forly. Us effect upon the system has boon ascertained lo be poisonous , and overdoses have been at tended with falal results. Lime is Iho most useless adulterant yet found in baking powders. Ills true that when subjected lo a heat a certain amount of carbonic acid gas is given off , but a quick-lime is left , a caustic so powerful that it is used by tanners to oat the hair from Iho hides of animals , and in dissceling rooms lo more quickly rol Ilic llcsh from Ihc bones of dead sub jects. The effect of lime upon flic delicate membranes of the stomach , intestines and kidneys , moro particularly of inf.anls and children , anil especially when taken into Ihc syslom day after day , and with almost every meal , is perni cious in Iho extreme , and is said by uhysicians to bo one of the chief causes of indigestion , dyspepsia and diseases of the kidneys. Chemists have found 12 per ccnt.,01one eiglli of Iho weiBhl , of some of Iho baking powdcrs.prom- inotly sold in this vicinity , lo bo lime. The wickedness of this adulteration is apparent. The absolute purity and wholesomcncss of the Royal Baking Powder now affirmed by every chem'st ' and food analyst of prominence , and conceded by all manufacturers of other brands arises from the exclusive use of cream of tartar specially refined by patent processes , which remove tolally the lime and all other impurities. These facililics arc possessed by no other manu facturer. The Chemist of the Department of Health of Brooklyn. N. Y. , in which city the works of the Royal Baking Powder Company arc situated , af ter recent numerous experiments , reports : "Isubjected several samples of the Royal Baking Powder , purchased from dealers in Brooklyn , to chemical analysis , and 1 lake pleasure in slaling that this powder lias attained a most remarkable purity. I am unable to do- leclthe slightest trace of lime tartrahnn it , while all its constituents arc pure and of the highest quality. The 'Royal' is a baking powder undoubted ly of Iho grcalesl leavening power , and perfectly wholesome. DR. O. GROTIIE , "Chemist Department of Health , Brooklyn , N. Y.
