THE ADVANCE ON THE ENEMY. Scores Mndo lly tlin Competitors , Blnnnnr of Conducting tlio 1'rno * tlco nnd tlio Blclll Which MnKce a MnrJf mi\n. On tlio Yesterday was an ideal summer day. and the scano nt Bellevue range of the depart ment of the Platte , whore the preliminary frnctico for the ninth annual rillo com petition Is In progress , was ono of interesting activity and plcturosqucncss. As Is well known , the r.inijo is n lovely epot , nnd soon under yesterday's genial sun- ( ddno , was only to Increase its enchantment. The splendid weather , too , scorned to have n : most uxtilloratlng influence upon thi oon- to ndlngtnrtrksmon. 'Ihey entered Into their friendly rivalry with uncommon zest , and peed scores were the natural result. It is a well-known fact , though , that man or boast performs liny eortofu duty , or any Kind of labor better nnd with greater satisfaction , under harmon ious utmosphorio conditions. A soldier's life Is a monotonous ono , at best , in times of t > eace , and sometimes burdensome , especially at an inland post , whcro the dully routine of duty is confined to the unvarying proscribed regulations. A rlllu competition , the Inspection by a su porlor olllccr , or any event out of the seem ingly tntcrinlnablo rut , is balled with an un- definable delight bv the soldier as an oash in the dreary waste of time. Is It nny wonder , then , that the soldier Is fuller of llfo and plrlta , of excitement and nagorncss an the tnornlng of an Important rifle competition , on i Rlorlous summer day llko yesterday I ' The late rains had tempered the soft south ern breezes until they fanned the brow lllte a refreshing balm. The sun shone softer nnd the birds sang tnoro sweetly , and all nature seemed n dream of happiness. The blue of the sky was 07 that tender transparent tint through which ono scorns to ponolruto to unbounded depths , and ever it the light winds wreathed their graceful cloud paintings. The long rows of tents cllstencd In the sunshine like BO many piles of snow , while the ( lashing Blue of the restless soldiers vied with that of the nzuro ubovo. It is not the Intention in this article to enter Into any of the details of camp life , but Instead to elaborate upon the scenes of the rifle competition , which is tilling the United States with tlio truest and most un erring shots In the world. So much has this rillo pracllco done for the regular sol dier In the past few years that It is the opinion of old , tried and experienced army ofllcers that a slnirln com pany of thcso thoroughly drilled marksmen , If pitted in battle on an open plain , with n regiment of ordinary soldiers which hud not received the bcnctits of these competitive trials , would win the day , and would rout the tyron of the knapsack aud the gun , horse , foot and the dragoocs. It requires a cool head , a steady nerve nnd dear a.yo to maka a rifle shot , and those es sentials only come by practice and oxpor- lonc.o , nnd that Is what tha soldiers of Uncle Bam uro cutting in those rillo competitions. It was remarkable to see with what pre cision the skirmishers yesterday scut their leaden projectiles crashing through the silhouettes hundreds of yards away , firing shot after shot with u rapidity that would have made the soldier of twenty years ago Bland aghast. The day's programme was us followt ) : ' At 8:16 the chief busier sounded ' 'As sembly , " and the sixty-tight men who wore to enter into the skirmish firing contest buckled on their bolts and In ialiRUo uniform formed in company on the level plateau on Which the range is laid. After the usual preliminary tlio squad was divided into minor squads of eight men and the shooting commenced. "Skirmishers , forward , guidu center 1" commanded Liou- teiiunt Tyler , the range oOlcor. 'Tu , tu , to , " sounded the bugle and the line moved. Tlio commanding olllcor spoke to the bugler again and this tlmo the men quickened their pace. It was the "double" tlmo over the green swurd they hurried until tbo 1 ! note of tbo clarion again sounded. was the "Halt , commence firing 1" Down on their backs tro the men , and U > an instant , almost , puffs o ; 8 molt o nro seen hero and thcro , and then tin CraoUl crack I crnckl crnckl of tlio muskot' Js hoard. Pingl pingl go the niuihuit mis fillcs , and , if curcful , the listener can cntcl the "chuck" of the bullet as it strikes the target. Now the men are up again In rcsponsa tc another call fit the bugle , and again tbo sol- tliera iulvnncn3 if before an imaginary Too Only to halt within the noxl ono hundrci ards , and by a performance similar to tht One nbove described , hold them in check bj B moment's rapid firing. And thus it goes 01 until "recall" is sounded. Skirmish firing , it is understood , is ono o : the important requisites in the making of t ikillcd mark nmn nnd soldier , for , unliki poets , line rillo shots are mauo. no horn , Uy th * system used in the united States army , a iimn , if his eyesight bo good , though ho doesn't Know rillo from a hoe , car 1)0 ) tuught to pat a bullet through a man' ! lung * lit llvo butidrod yards nlno times out o : ton.

HTOPP13D THU DIllDATj. DonnldHon's Double Marriage I'ro- Yftntrd by a flitncli ol Letters. "lam the best advertised man In Amer ica , " Is what Edward A. Donaldson wrote from Milwaukee to a young woman at Gales- burp , 111. , whom he had deceived and be trayed. Edward Is a married Omahatravollng man , and of the most dashing Lothario's stylo. This discovery was made through the presence In tins city of Samuel Frollcka , n hotel keeper at Galcsburg , who Is looking up the young man's record. An examination of records In in the county court discloses the fact that two years ago a liconaa wass Issued to Edward A. Donaldson nnd Jennie Fcnnal. They were then Joined In the bonds of mat rimony. Subsequently Edward mot Miss Kate IJroughwallc , described us n tall , grace ful , pretty girl , about nineteen years old , at Galesburg , and foil In love with her. Home rather handsome ns well as audacious , Don aldson won her affection , and a courtship of several months' duration resulted In the en gagement , and great preparations oa Miss Uroughwulk's pure for tne marriage. Whllo away from homo , soiling goods , Donaldson corresponded with Miss } . Urough- walk ns well ns with his own wife. Three months ago , whllo ho was traveling In Missouri , both women directed letters to him in a certain town in that state whcro they know ho expected to be detained over Sunday , There is whcro the futes reversed their fortunes and sot a trap for Donaldson. The latter never received cither of these let ters. In duo tune the missives wcro for warded to the dead letter oWco at Washing ton , and there passed , by chance , through the bands of ono clerk , who after reading them , forwarded both to the wife in this city. This opened her eyes and trouble com menced. Before returning home , Donaldson received an intimation that his appearance would cr aton sensation , and instead of going to his own house , remained at a down town hotel , As soon as Mrs. Donaldson heard that her husband was in the city she ascertained his lodging place and called to see him. Luckily , ho happened to bo out , but she got the key , visited his rooms , broke open his grip and captured a bundle of letters which ha had received from the Illinois girl. ' 1 huso missives disclosed the fact that Don aldson nnd 13roughwallc were to have been married within two wcoks from that tlmo. To the latter , and her friends , Donaldson represented that ho was somewhat compli cated with a woman In Nebraska , moaning his wife , but could easily get rid of her at nny tlmo. Lint recent developments show that in this opinion he found himself very badly mistaken. After Mrs. Donaldson had secured sufll- clont proof to convince her that she was being duped n firm of lawyers was consulted and steps were taken to institute legal pro ceedings. Donaldson hoard of "this and dis appeared. From MthVtiukna ho wrote to Miss Hroughwalk , tolling her everything , aud it Is.supppsod loft tha country. A suit for divorce will follow. Frolccka says that the Galesbury girl had her wedding trosseau prepared'invitations sentout and everything in readiness for a brilliant society event on the day of her marriage. AMUSICMKNTS. It Is a long stride from Rosalind , so tender , sweet , charming and innocent , to Mary Stuart , yet Modjcskn takes it with an air ol ease , grace and dignity that is certainly re freshing. Last night the madauiG presented Schiller's wonderful creation at 13oyd's ' opera house , and only when Modjoska as sumes the character do .theater goers of this day and genera tiou have revealed to them a roalizatlor of Its masterly Importance mid terrible meaning. To undlyzo her performance ol the dethroned and imprisoned queen would fill columns , still nothing more interesting instructive nud entertaining oan hardly be imagined. It Is rcalisim personified , passior duplicated in natural accord with humane feeling and sentiment , Intense action koul within bounds of reason and judgement , nrl as clean , pure , bountiful and finished as ovei gr.iccd the mimic stao. It was in the climax to the third art that she proved beyond yond fiucMtlon the great scope of bur magnet ism , eloquence and power. As the curtair foil upon the scene a toriflc outburst of nu plaube swept the audience , and did not cease until the star inndo her appearance in nc knowledgoment of the approving Judgmon upon her efforts. The principal support , will one or two exceptions , was brilliant. Jotii A.

UGLY VEGETABLE PARASITES How Stale Prunoa Are Steamed and RofroshocL FOOD FOR BUGS AND WORMS. Disclosures Unit \Vttl Cnnno the Epl- unro to Turn I'nlc Ono of tbo Tricks of the Trnclo In Omaha. A Now Industry. Some of tbo merchants of this city wo In the habit of sending stale dried fruits and other poods to a certain hooso on North Six teenth street , for the purpose of having the stuff steamed and refreshed , in order to make It saleable. A reporter visited the place to see if ro- iort9 concerning It were truo. As ho reached .ho place a wagon bearing the name of a prominent wholesale house backed up to the rear entrance of the place nml flvo barrels of prune * wore unloaded and placed near the aoor. The tops of the barrels \voro covered with coffee sacks. The reporter lifted onaof these and peered Inside , A sickening odor of must and rot- Lonnoss wan wafted to hit nostrils , but hold ing Ins brcatb a moment no took another look. ScntnporliiR hither and thither were bugs that thrive in corruption while every where could be scon tbo disgusting squirm of worms. A handful of this garbage was wrapped up carefully In a piece of paper and hold for fu ture roforcmco. Inside the engineer was get ting the machinery ready to steam this ref use and glvo it the appearance of freshness. The place was devoted to the roasting of ! > canuts and the rojuvonatmg of infected uruncs and other dried fruits. ' Why do you atcara those1 prunosl" was asked. The fellow colored , and with some hesi tancy , said : "To dry thorn. " "But doesn't steaming them mnko thorn moist ! " The fellow looked still raoro confused and said : "Well , yea ; wo steam them to make them look fresh. " "Do you stoatn only old prunes ! " "Yes. " "But what becomes of those wormsi" and the lutorrogater lifted the cloth of ouo of the barrels. The fellow cast an nngry gleam at the questioner and in a to no indicating that the conversation was at an end , said : "Tho steaming kills them. " A couple of well known and reputable physicians wcro sought by the reporter and the prunes taken from thu barrel woro'shown them andsuDjcctcd to microscopic examina tion. " \Voll. " said ono of the doctors , "those squirming vegetable parasites that you sue are but a small portion of those in the fruit. Did you notice that thcso prunes uro covered with a myriad of mtnuta whlto spots 1 Well , these are sugar mites , bacteria and other germs of discaso , the s.uno as thu microscopic in sects that infect diseased meat and are equally as dangerous In case they ara swal lowed with the food. You might as well drink the water of a sewer as far as health is concerned. In n strong constitution thuy may remain latent for awhile , but eventually they will cause discaso. These prunes are utterly unwholesome. They are rotton. " The other physician confirmed these state ments. Two or three of the white spots were put on the microscope aud the Instrument was handed to the reporter. On peering Into It , three monsters were revealed , not unlike mud turtles , each with a myriad of logs with a continual motion that made too reporter's flesh creep. The attention of Dr. Ralph , city physi cian , was called to the fact that thcso dis ordered prunes were being sold. The doctor said that if ho could obtain sliOlciont evidence - donco ho would proceed against the guilty parties at once. Thcro is no city ordinance , ho said , to cover the case , but it could betaken taken euro of under the Nebraska statutes. Such a practice , hov.is emphatic In de claring , should bo stopped at once , ns it could not prove otherwise than disastrous to the health of many people. Dr. B. T. Coppcdgo , of Verona , Mo. , says ho has sold a largo quantity of Swifts Spe cific , and to a great many customers , and knows it to bo most successfully used for maladies of the blood. FLOODS IN KANSAS. Trains Suspended and Ono Million in Property Destroyed. Reports were received at the Union Pacific headquarters to the effect that the territory in Kansas in the vicinity of Junction City and Fort Kearney Is flooded owing to the heavy rains that have prevailed for the past twelve days. With the exception of trans ferring passengers , trafilo on the Kansas division of the Union Pacific has boon sus pended , the road boiog so badly washed that through taalns cannot run. Near Fort Kearney the country is flooded for miles in places to the depth of several feet and the railroad track is submerged. It seems that the Somkoy and Republican rivers overflowed their banks and tbo bridges spanning both streams Downed by tbo Union I'aciflu have buou carried away. It Is also reported that the grain crop throughout Kansas has boon damaged to a cousidoraolo extent and that In the Hooded districts the crops have been almost totally destroyed. Tlio damages have not as yet boon com puted , but it Is thought that the loss on crops alone will foot up close to a million dollars , and possibly more. The damage to the Union Pacillo will aggregate $25,000. Further damage Is expected from the over flow of the river. Another IllooKiulo. The atmosphere In the immediate vicinity of the Union Pacltlc and Burlington depots savored of brimstone yesterday. The yardmaster of the Union Pacific gave orders to transfer a chain of empty cars which was stationed at Summit to Council Blurts , and a train of 130 cars was made up. It required about ten minutes fur the train to clear the Tenth street crossing , but the significance of this was that about this time passengers'on their way to the Uurliugton depot to take the train were unable to cross and several failed to make connections and partook of the opiwrtunlty of venting their spleen de nouncing the impropriety of the railroads generally. The U. P. Squatter * . An attache of the Union Pacific stated , when asked why the company was making a move against the squatters , that It was done for the reason that some of the squatters had resided on the ground so long that they be gan to feel that they had an interest la the property. Ho was of the opinion that the land was not desired for Immediate laying of track. As regards the property of the company contiguous to Cut-Off luke , ho stated that the company had acquired a strip of land 80C foot wide , through purchase and grants , ex tending from the center of Cut-Off lake along the river to the main line ; also , that the company would uot Interfere -with the uquuttors unless the latter resided on prop erty actually needed by tbo company. Adams Is Coming. The private oar of President Adams of the Union Pacific was dispatched to Portland from this city yesterday , nnd will return with President Adams in about two weeks. Mr. Adams has spent three weeks In Alaska , and the report Is that his mission In that section Is for tbo purpose of considering the build' ing of a line from Portland to Alaskn.theroby forming direct connections with the CuiiU' dian Pacific. On his return Mr. Adams will stop over here and give the union depot problem bis personal attention. Ilnllrnnrt Notes. General Manager Hurt of the Elkhorn , baa returned from the went.

Throe years ago Leather came to'Omaha and found employment in the engineering department of the Union Pacific. Ho lived with his wife and two children at 1513 South Tenth street. Leather was industrious nnd economical and secured considerable valua ble property. About a year ago Mrs. Leather induced her husband to sell his Omaha possessions and move to Council Bluffs.

"Well , isn't this too lovely for any- thlngl" This remark emanated from ono of 150 fomlnlno school teachers who viewed Omaha from the roof of Tnn Bun building yesterday afternoon , Suoh n fluttering of dainty skirts and suppressed shrieks as the olovn- tors shot up from tbo ground floor to thereof roof , had never boon hoard before m TUB BEE building. A phalanx of the beauty and brains of Harrison county , Iowa , assembled on the top floor at 3 p. m. , and were escorted to the roof by members of Tun UEB staff , who pointed out the principal features of the city to the visitors. After they had been satiated with the sconlo slilo of Omaha a descent was made to the next floor , and they were shown through the editorial rooms , llnpturous expressions of delight nt the appointments of the various odlccs bubbled from the lips of the young ladles us the procession wound Us way along. Near the reporters' room n water tank was discovered and ovuryouo was thirsty. "What are wo stopping here for ! " naked a maiden in the roar ranks. "Oh. this Is where wo stop for 'food and water , ' " came the reply from ono near enough to know the causa of the delay. As they passed the door of the reporters' room many curious glances were shot In by worry eves and all seemed anxious to see thu curious "animal in his lair. The good looking reporter who Is a myth , by the way was not in at tha tlmo , consequently no harm was done. The composing room croatna n great deal of interest. The girls all wanted to know what a horrid thing a "slug" was that the foreman was calling out about , and wanted to bo shown "tho phat man , " and when ho was pointed out ouo of them said : "Why , I don't think he's very fat. " The mat ter was explained to her , nnd the other girls gave her "tho laugh , " so to speak. The stereotyping department was next visited. and ns the forms were being stereotyped the room was crowded. The brawny young men who manipulate the ladle wore objects of great Interest , and the girls carried away pieces of matrix napor nnd splatters of metal from the floor as sou venirs. Ono of them was hoard to remark ns she came away , "I've got three perfectly roniantlo pieces. " exhibiting about u pound of distorted caricatures of splatters. Then the floors below were examined ono after another , and tha workmanship of the builders highly praised. "This is ono of the best lighted nnd best arranged office buildings I was over In , " re marked genial Banker Holbrook , of Missouri Valley , who uccornuaniod the party. They all rested whllo in the court waiting for the web press to start up. When this occurred they filed Into the press room and stood around the press watching ovorythlnj with intent intelligence. Madame Modeska\ ] was looking at the worldng of the press at tbo time , nnd her identity was soon whis pered around , and created qulto a flutter. "Isn't she Just lovely , " exclaimed ono. "Hurry along so wo can got a good look at her , " cried another ; "I never saw a real actress off the stage boforo. " Considerable diligence was necessary to keep the young ladies from getting their dresses caught in tbo cogs of tbo machinery , as they pressed forward in their eagerness to see everything that was going on. After all had been seen they ex pressed themselves delighted with every thing , and carried nway material for considerable sidorablo hard thought on the production of a great dally.

This Trotting HcnKoti PromlRos to Kollpqo Its Predecessors In Intorcst , Tlio coming trotting : soosou promises to eclipse nil previous ones in intercut , eays the Now York Hornlil , The purses of the grand circuit , which opoiis nt Cleveland July SO nnd closes at Philadelphia September U7 , nro more tempting than ever boforo. The aggregate exceeds a quarter of a million dollars. In thosp entries , ns well ns those of other meetings through out the country , the horses average up unusually well , while many llyors some already famous , others just loom ing up are in training lor great ef forts. Among expected Bonsaiions are the trial ot speed to bo trotted in Buf falo in Autrust by Barry Willtes , record 2:13J : , and Bcllo Hamlin , 2:131 : , and the probable match between Guy , who has just trottud in 2:1H : , aud Jay-Eyo-Sco , whoso mile in 2:10 : has been eclipsed only by Maud S. in 2:03 : } . Though the season has just oponcd record breaking has begun. The young tit ill lion Axloll scored a grand achieve ment at Minneapolis last week in re ducing the three-year-old record from 2:18 : to 2:16i : , while Guy. at Cleveland , as lowered his own time from , 2:12 : to Thcso figures suggest the remarkable development that twenty years have witnessed in the speed of the typical American horso. When the war closed only ono trotter had ever made a milo in less than 2:20.- : Flora Temple's Kala- raazoo performance in 1850 was the wonder of the world. For nine years afterward she reigned queen of the turf , as she had for three years before. Yet the record which gave her fame 2:191 : has "now become commonplace. It was reduced to 2:17iby : Dexter in 1807. Goldsmith Maid first lowered it to 2:17 : in 1871 and three years later to 2:14. : It remained there till 1878 , when Rarus trotted in 2 : 13 } . The following year St. Julion brought it down ( o 2:121 : and the next season to 2:11 : } . In 1880 Maud S. was crowned queen of the turf with 2:10 : } on her I rumor , which ho reduced to 2:10 : } Itf Ib'il. Fo < three yoarsaho was without n pcor. lu August , 1891 , she was dethroned b < Jay-Eye-Seo who scored a milo in 2:10i : But only for twenty-four honis. Tin next day tlio great mare trotted in 2:091. : and in 18S5 she inndo her t ccord ol 2:03 : } , wliioh still stnmlH the n arvol o ( the world. From this rovlow it will bo eoon thai the trotting record 1ms been reduced hist cloven seconds in thlity years , That shows the superiority > f Maud S , over Flora Tomplo. But ll o develop * mont of the trotter is only } arlly illus trated by tMjompariBon of tl o achieve ments of those two hoi-309. During tha reign of Flora Temple there was hul ono two-twenty trotter , i * ow there nra scores ot.lhoin. Many hao \ trotted low in the toons. Hundreds ol others have on to rod the two-thirty Us' . In special classes , such as two , th oo nnd four- year-olds , the lowering of the record has boon romtirkablo. To what is this development of trot ting speed duo ? Various causos. First , breeding , to which more thought , on- torprlso nnd capital have boon given every successive year. The horse itsoli hits thus boon grontly improved. Than it has bcon greatly holp'Ul ' by artificial moans. Tlio truck of to-day ta "faster" than the old-time course. It ia a mile instead of a half mile , elliptical instead of round , and with greatly Improved footing. A Biilisy now weighs forty "pounds. It used lo weigh eighty to a hundred. Then there are too weights and special shoes designed to hahuico the trotter in his gait , boots anil Other appliances to protect his feet and legs. Corresponding improvements have boon made in harness , reins aud bits. Fin ally , a higher degree of skill hna boon attained in training and driving. All ot whicn have combined to increase the speed of the trotter. Has the limit of this speed boon reached ? Hardly. Many think that in her day Maud S. has boon capable of 2:03 : , 2:07 : and oven 2:0(1. : ( It is not Im probable that her present record will bo surpassed by some other horse. There has been bomo speculation whether any horse will over trot a milo in two min utes. That is purely a matter of specu lation. _ An AlHOlnttt Oitrr.
