The New Ii'rvlRlit Depot Notes nml
The Union Pacific freight depot , men
tion of which lias already been made in
the DKI : , is without doubt an assured fact
The site will bo between Seventh and
Ninth streets and Jones and Jackson
streets , and will take up the whole ol
blocks 178 and 171) ) . The structure will
bo of brick and iron according to the
best designs. Work will be begun with
in the next two weeks , and it is thought
that the structure will bo completed nc
later than November next. The building
and yard will occupy u space 028x281 foot
Sn extent. All the local trcight will be
handled in the new depot , and in tills
way the switching ami backing over
Tenth street crossing will bo avoided. It
is expected that the Rook Island road
and the Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul ,
and possibly the Northwestern , will use
the freight terminal facilities thus u lib ril
The regular meeting of the passenger

cis of the B. it M. , Mr. Buchanan of 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-

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. "

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
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.
