MnrrlnRC nnd Divorce.
Judge Wnkely gave a very characto'rltlo
nnd somewhat humorous decision In the dl-
vorco case of SUiltibcok vs Stclnbcbk , showIng -
Ing that the suit hnd boon n very much ex
aggerated nnd mixed affair. Mis. Stolnbock
based her claims for divorce on the grounds
of extreme nnd Inhuman cruelty , but the
testimony of both herself nnd the husband
appeared to cither overshoot or undcr-cstl-
mate the real truth. Said the court : "Hero

vorced. Here , nlso , was a wo

Nunco county , tlnds that ho is lonely and
wants to take unto himself a wife. She is
anxious to secure n good homo for herself
and boy. At their second meeting , marriage ,
purely ns a business transaction was pro-
jumed nnd agreed on. Two months after
their wedding , an eruption occurred that
separated them. Two wcokn afterwards ,
however , both dlscovcrod that n great mis
take had been made and they commenced to
quarrel. Ho began beating , abusing nnd
swearing nt her. She sulkedcried nnd talked
back in a saucy manner. Finallyono.ovontng ,
while sitting In a corner of the dining-room ,
ho entered , carrying some crocks , nnd ang
rily asked her to 'got out of that. ' She
failed to move , whereupon ho Hung her
violently across the room nnd hurled the
chair after her. It struck and bruised her
ankle badly. Then she left his house , and

very differently , but the Judge could not bo-
llovo that his version was thu true one. Both
nindo extravagant statements , hut there
were other witnesses whoso testimony had
weight , nnd they were sufficient to convince
his honor that legal separation was
a good thing for both parties.
He therefore granted the divorce nnd gave
the woman $000 , to bo paid iu three install
ments us her dower In the real cstato. Sbo
could not got both. On this part of the rul

parties will agree to that without any diffi
culty. "

The flfpyclo Racr.
The seven fair bykors were promptly on
the track at 7:30 : last night , nnd another
splendid nttundnnco was on hniid to Bond
thorn off. The smoothness of the stnrt was
somewhat mnrrod by n b6rcs ! of contretemps
that might hnvo boon uvoldod by n llttlo fore
sight on the part of the respective esquires
of the ladies. In the first place , Miss Will
iams toppled from her mnchlno just ns the
pistol was fired , and before she could re
mount , the others hnd pained half a lop on
her. It was not us bad as it might lnivo boon ,
however , for had her competitors been
awnro of her mishap they could hnvo
easily mimed a full lap on her. But
Miss .Williams , while she has quite
as much speed as ttio fastest of thorn , with
possibly the exception of Fairy Baldwin , has
also greater powers of endurance , und she
was but a short time in recovering her lost
Shortly after this mlfortuno Miss Lewis ,
who is among the leaders , discovered that
she was not upon her own wheel , and she
was compelled to halt and make n change.
It eventuated that the handlers Una inado the
blunder , mounting Miss Lowit on Baldwin's
wheel nnd Baldwin upon Miss Lewis' . Thus
both lost a lap in making the cliango.
Then ngaln , nftor nil were under full
headway , a yellow dog made Ills appearance
on the track , and all the contestants wcro
compelled to slow up , in order to avert an
accident , until the canine could bo phased oft
the course. This was no easy task , for ho ran
yelping around the track us if ho had an old
oyster can attached to his caudal appendage.
Olio of the attendants took nftor him , und
amid tiio screams and laughter ot the crowd ,
the exciting chase -went. Finally the purp
leaped over the balustrade among the aud-
icnuo tit the lower end of the track and the
emulous wheelers again had a clear field.
Miss Oakes , who seems to possess u varied
wardrobe , appeared last night in u light blue
waist , white knickerbockers and black hose ,
while a white plume nestled among her
raven tresses. She signified her appearance
last night by cutting a tremendous pace from
the beginning , nnd succeeded in recovering
several laps from nor nearest competitor.
Miss Baldwin looked as bewitching as
ever , and her spasmodic spurts of
wondorous speed were of course ngaln greeted
with the uproarious plaudits of thousands
of hands and voices. She is a great favorite ,
and the frequent expression among the nudi-
enco was , "Oh , I wish that little thing could
win. " It is a forlorn hope. Williams is al
most a dead sure winner , and local pride is
certainly to bo satiated.Sho is too strong
and determined for the rest , and , it is pre
dicted , will increase ncr lend from this on
out.Tho Interior of t oCollseum , nt half past 8
lost night was a scene calculated to cnthusu
any one. Every seat was occupied and the
spacious promenades crowded with applaud
ing nnd interested' ' spectators. It was the
second largest audiences ever assembled
here , and it is no 'exaggeration to place it ut
0,000 souls. ; " *
- . At twenty ralnutbs- _ after 8 o'clock Miss
Williams completed Her one hundredth milo
in six hours and fifty-eight minutes , within
thirty-live seconds ' 'of Louisa Armaindo's
best time. Miss Woods completed her ono
hundredth mile in 6i50. Sir Thomas Eck uu-
noiinccd these fcats'tti the audience , and the
Indies wcro Riven a tremendous ovation.
Miss Williams evidenced her appreciation of
this dcmonstration'0'n the part of tbo audi =
ence by spurting out' from the bunch nnd

hardly realized what happened. Miss Woods
fought gomoly to.jnwcnt.tnis , but it was no
use , niid she was cdmpelled to give up. The
strain Tipon.hor in thfe arduous work was tp'o ,
much for her , and sha 'was comuolled to dis
mount and rest for several minutes. She had
been sick ail day , and the only wonder is
that she was enabled to go on the track at
all. During this absence from the track both
Baldwin and Lewis gained fully eight laps
upon her , which again gave Lewis second
The alfllculiy with the foreign ladies seems
to be that not a slntrlcono is in condition. It
is a well known fact that Misses Oakoa ,
Lewis and Baldwin arc excellent riders , und
that none of them have como nny where near
their former best records. An overindulgence - '
genco in bonbons and tropical fruits may in
measure account for some of the fair ones'
inability to do themselves credit.

mile ana three laps and "Woods ono milo and
seven laps nnd wus gradually gaining.
By magnificent riding tyiss Oakcs , toward
the close of the evening , overhauled and
passed Miss Brown , and is now in fifth place.
The wind-up was made in a perfect pandi-
monium of apulause , the audlonco scorned
utterly beside itself , and arose as one person
and cheered until echo answered echo. It
was one of the most exhilarating scenes over
witnessed in the city of Omaha , which is be
coming famed far-and wide for her life and
prominence in sporting affairs of all kinds.

Between 8 nnd 0 o'clock last night the
Herald building , or a portion of It , was on
flro. In the southern end of the building on
Fifteenth street is n barber shop , 'conducted
by a colored man named C. S. Swccd. Just
about the time that the barber shop was to bo
closed n man came in for n bath. Ho was
assigned n room by ono of the attendants.
Ho was nlso given a lamp , in which was
some bad kcrotono oil * It exploded , nnd
the wood partitions and other inllammnblo
materials were soon ablaze. The man was
not long in making his escape.
An alarm of fire was turned In from box 03.
People thought the Murray hotel was on
fire , ns this box called for Fourteenth and
Harncy streets.
It was but a few moments tlmo until the
flro was discovered to bo In the Herald build
ing nnd thousands of pcoplo wcro soon gath
ered around It ,
Dense volumes of smoke issued forth from
the windows and doors of tlio
building , and by the tlmo tha
chemical engine arrived the printers in the
fourth story wcro "making even" on tholr
"takes" and preparing to make their exit.
They worfl almost suffocated with smoke ns
soon ns the door of the news room was
opened , but all escaped , and tholr lungs nro
as good as heretofore.
The editorial department is on the name
floor , and its members got to tiio ground floor
with great alacrity. People who though
they were in quest of news were mistaken
or misled.
Among the first to cmorgo from the top
floor was tbo city editor. Ho was writing
his column , "In the Soup. " The particular
nonpanol paragraph that ho was grinding
upon was "Tho Still Alarm , " which will bo
turned in some tlmo next week not to the
paper , but in a different shape , wliien may
bo moro tlrcsomo to newspapers , flro depart
ments nnd others , when it is hoard , or rather
scon , nt $1 per see.
It was not exactly a still alarm to the city
editor , for ho hoard the flro bell and In
structed his fire reporter to chase the
chemical , little thinking that the chemi
cal was about to chase him. The
flro reporter rubbed his eyes , yawned and
quietly strolled away. A few moments later ,
wnen'every room in the building was in
smoke , the city' editor turned nround and
asked the newly appointed night editor what
bo wan smoking that was so offensive.
At this juncture the managing editor , who
had been trying to decipher a news Item out
of the Council Bluffs qulro of paper , rushed
in and informed the staff that the oftlco
was on fire. The reason that the
city editor made his cscapo from
the building sooner than anyone clsa is that
ho is built that way. It is said that ho didn't
touch' n step on the stairways and in ono
case ho didn't make n turn in the hallway on
the second floor , but stcpucd through a pnncl
of the door lending on Fifteenth Htroot.
if there was great excitement among the
staff and printers , with the business depart
ment there was moro consternation. Young
Mr. Ward , who is said to bo a "mo too" to
the manager of the paper , made frantic
efforts vo do Chief Galllgan's work.
Ho didn't exactly do it , however , but rushed
around in such an excited manner that the
members'of the staff wcro afraid that the
fire laddies would turn tha hose on him if ho
was uot locked up in the press room.
The flro was finally extinguished by young
Mr. Wurd , with the assistance of the fire de
