A Chisel Old It ,
Jack ItoRisrs , a cnrjienlcr employed on
the Moiiiit'll residence which U bi'injiercet-
ctl on Dodge .street , near Twentieth , lost
tils life yesterday afternoon
in a. very peculiar manner.
Jlo was working on a scallbld
intf In front of tlio building , when
suddenly " ' " framework bcinj ;
jnrred a cliisel which had boon rest
ing on one of the joists , was
thrown down and fell directly upon KOR-
crs'shoulder , rutting a horriblu ga.sh and
Revering one of the largo arteries. Uog-
crs retained prescneo of mind enough to
climb down the ladder and ask the men
to send nt 0111-0 for a doctor. Dr. Dysurt
came lit once in response to the call , but
before ho hero could arrive on the seeno
Kogers wits dead , lie had bled to death
within ten minutes of the timu the artery
The Inquest was held by Coroner
Drexel yesterday afternoon , gnml
developed the faets as sta
ted above. None ol the
workmen seemed to know by whoso
fatal carelessness the chisel had been left
lying on the joists. The foreman tes-
tilledthat Kogors , when climbing down
the ladder had said to him "some of
left a chisel up then- , and it fell on
mo. ( Jo for a doctor in u hurry ! Stop
this blood ! " Thcho were the last words
Koger.s was a man about thirty-live
years old. .No one seems to know much
nhout him , except that ho has been in
Omaha three years , and came hero from
Jowa , where lie has relatives still living.
The body was removed to Drexel it

There has been a change in the manner
of transferring freight at this pointwhich
may yet result in a decrease of the mini-
lcr of freight bands employed at the
Union I'acitic depot in this eity. Until
the present time it was customary for all
the local freight from the east to come to
this side of the river , mostly jn the cars
in which it was shipped at points further
cast. Here it was taken from those cars ,
wei ghed , laid upon the platform , weighed
a second time , ami again placed
in Union Pacific cars bound for
the station to which the goods were con-
fligncd. If there were goods from this
elation consigned to the same destination
they were loaded with these from the
cast. This order of tilings has now been
changed Freight from Chicago , intend
ed for local points on the Union Pacific ,
now comes no further than Council
lilnll's. It is transferred at that point
from the eastern roads , to the cars of the
Union Pacific. The cars are then brought
to this side of the river and if freight is
billed hero to the same point is
placed on board with that from
the cast. Through freight , that is
freight which la billed at an eastern ,
point and destined to the coast , is par
tially transferred over and partially on
this side of the river. The greatest fea
ture of tlio change , however , is the trans
fer of local freight , above mentioned.
Three gangs of men , comprising from
thirty to fifty laborers wore yesterday
put to work at the transfer depot in the
IJlufl's in trans-shipping the local freight
mentioned. These men do so much that
was formerly done here there beams to
bo little douut in the minds of many of
the depot hands engaged on this side of
the river that a number of them will
probably have to bo discharged. This
causes thorn to look gloomy ,
though there is very little rea
son for that. The change
lias been necessitated by the recent in
crease in freight business , and the smallness -
ness of the yards and the fewness of the
tracks which render it almost impossible
for the company to handle its through
eastern and western business. The com
pany is now widening anil lengthening
jU yards and before long will be able to
lay all the tracks its business now re
quires. When that Is done , the tempo
rary chnugo above mentioned will be set
aside and all the freight work will be
done this hide of the river.
A Hey Tells of Horrllilo Treatment uy
Mr * . Davis , a lady living near Four
teenth and Lcavenworth , name up to the
Buckingham hall late yesterday afternoon
leading by the hand a small boy , who
Jooked as though he had just cseapod
flam Dotheboya hall , the prison school
BO vividly portrayed by Dickons. Ho
was dressed in a very s canty assort
ment of ragged clothes , with a heavy
tmckground of dirt and filth. His
hliriveled , puny form and pale , weazened
face , showed that lin must luivo received
horrible mistreatment. Mrs. Davis'
Btory was to the oll'oct that for months
past the child has been with his aunt , a
Mrs. lilack , in that neighborhood , and
lias received brutal treatment
nt her bauds. Kvory morning at four or
live o'clock ho has been obliged to get
up , make the lire , and do the heavy
drudgery of cooking breakfast , washing
dishes , otn. When these tasks wore
disposed of ho was sot nt work
inucii beyond Ids capabilities ,
bolng allowed scarcely a single mo
ment for play. His aunt would , beat him
on the slightest provocation with a slicker
or board , and the mire and bruises on
bis body show what horrible treatment
lie has received. Ho wns told that he
would bo killed if ho ever cried out , ami
consequently when bcnon ( imvor
screamed , The boy tells a sickening
story of further shocking cruelties ,
which it would seem could hardly bo
triio. The ladles of the Buckingham
will care for him.

" Koyal" the only Baking PowderlEree from
A , Lime and Absolutely Pure.
Linic is flic Fcrious defect found in most of the cream of lavtnr baking
powders. As a matter of fnct , chemical analysis has found 51 in all sucli
the " ' " Its is caused of ndnl-
powders except "Uoj'nl. presence by the use -
torntud cream of tartar in the eflovt to reduce their cost of production.
Limo adds to the weight while it detracts from the strength of the
baking powder , It also renders thu food less wholesome , giving rise to
dyspepsia and kindred ailments. Unking powders containing lime pro
duce less leavening gas , and therefore in use are more expensive than a
first class , pure article.
The Royal Halting Powder is made from cream of tartar that is first
specially refined and made chemically pure. No tartrate of lime or other
impurity can find its way into the "Royal , " and to this fitcb its great su
periority in strength , wholcsomeness and keeping quality is due.
All this adds greatly to the cost of manufacturing the Royal Baking
Powder , but as all its ingredients aiv selected and prepared with the
siime precise care and regardless of labor or'expsnse ' , an article is produc
ed that is free from every extraneous substance "absolutely pure. " Xor
does it contain any ingredients except those necessary to make a pure ,
wholesome and perfect baking powder.
Prof. McMurtrie , late chemist in chief of the U. S. Department of ag
riculture , after analyzing the cream of tartar used by the various baking
powders of the market , testifies to the absolute purity of that employed
in the Royal Baking Pcwder as follows :
"I have examined the cream of tartar manufactured for and used by
the Royal Baking Powder Company in their baking powder , and find it
to be perfectly pure and free from lime in any form. "
Prof. Love , who made the analysis of baking powders for the New
York State Board of Health , as well its for the government , certifies to
% the purity and wholcsomeness of the Royal.
Dr. E. II. Bartley , chemist of the Brooklyn , N. Y. , Department of
Health , pays "I have recently analyzed samples of the 3loyal Baking
Powder purchased by myself in the stores o this city , and find it free
from lime in any form. "
Bread , cake , biscuits , etc. , prepared with Royal Baking Powder will be
lighter , sweeter and more wholesome than if made with anj'Lother baking
powder or leavening agent.
