Ifiinlbnl Tool * the Striker * .
There Is a good strike yarn permeating
Secretary Tom M. Orr's department down at
the Union Pacific headquarters. During the
late- labor disturbance up along the Utah &
Northern division of the Union Pacific Sells
& Itenlfrow's circus was showing at Lima ,
Mont. They were there when the strike
was ordered. They had dates at both Dillon
and Uutte and were anxious to get there ,
but when they began to pull up stakes the
local switchmen notified them that they
could not move their stuff over the Union
Pacific , as they had no engine. Will Sells ,
manager of the mcgathcrlon outfit , was In
a horrible stew , hut suddenly a happy
thought struck him , and that was to have
his big elephant , Hanlbal Junior , serve as an
engine. Accordingly the big mountain of
Asiatic flesh and bone was brought forth
and headforemost put behind the train of
twenty-four , cars all heavily laden
with the show's traps. Hanlbal was
cnual to the occasion , and he shoved the
whole shebang down from Divide , but ho
couldn't get them over the big Incline.
Sells , however , injected a dozen barrels or
two of sarsaparllla under his belt , and the
mammoth beast , turned round and kicked
the whole outfit over the hill. Then he
butted them along nt a merry clip down the
105 foot grade , and up the western range ,
shoving the entire train , performers , tents ,
horses , mcnagcrlo and all , Into liutte the
next morning In time for the afternoon per
Hontli nukntii'H Hoonilng lie-sort.

General Manager Dickinson of the Union
Pacific conveys the information that the
.receivers of the Union Pacific are rapidly ar-
i * riving at satisfactory arrangements with Re-
colvqr McNeil of the Oregon Railway &
Navigation company. They have agreed
updrt a division of the freight and passenger
business and the handling of the Joint traffic
at Huntlngton , Ore. , the station where the
two lines come together.
The Union Pacific Is to handle the station ,
Insofar as the question of expenses of agents ,
operators and carpenters goes , which Is to bo
Ikr divided on a wheeling basis , which Is prac
tically on everything , the wheelago of both
t * lines from this point being about equal.

CHICAGO , July 30. The amount of freight
handled last week Is about what the roads
were handling before the strike and shows
that they have recovered tlielr own and are
doing an much business as before they were
crippled. The chief Item In the free trafilc
of the western roads at present is live
stock. If these shipments maintain their
present average , It will bo only a short time
before the price takes a tumble , as packers
have at present about all they care to handle
and there seems to be no signs of a let-up
In the traffic. _

CHICAGO , July 30. There was plenty of
excitement In the corn pit today. Reports
of ruined crops came In thick and fast and
the price Jumped rapidly. There was an
advance of nearly 3 cents , and the market
closed at the top flgurca of the day. The
excitement started with the posting of a
statement showing the receipts of live stock
In Chicago to be 07,000 head , the largest
one day receipts over known. It brought
traders to the realization of the drouth In
the corn belt and Its consequences , such
as they had not previously conceived. The
magnitude of the receipts showed thnt
western stock growers had become alarmed
over the long drouth , and fearing that they
would bo unable to secure feed at paying
prices , had resolved to sell out at once ,
While the brokers have taken cognizance
of the drouth they had not heretofore had
It so strongly Impressed upon their minds.
The showing that CO,000'hogs , 20,000 cattle
and 10,000 sheep had been shipped to Chicago
cage In twenty-four hours canio with
almost the suddenness and force of a knock
out blow. During all last week corn was
on the Jump. The signal service reports
of showers In various localities caused prices
to drop 3 rents , but It was reasoned that
the rain had benefited only n limited ter
ritory , and prices advanced. Saturday night
prices closed pretty well advanced with the
expectation of the market being Influenced
by the weather on Monday. When the
traders came down to business today they
consulted the weather map and press dis
patches and saw that In sections of Il
linois , Missouri and Kansas showers had
fallen , but these had not been sufficient to
break the drouth In the big1 corn belt which
extends from Ohio to the Rocky mountains.
Then came the announcement regarding live
stock receipts , and It began to bo realized
that 75 per cent of the best portion of the
corn belt was still affected by the drouth.
The "surplus corn" states , Iowa , Illinois ,
Missouri , Kansas and Indiana , which last
year raised 1,000,000,000 bushels out of 1,000-
000,000 , constituting the entire crop in the
United States , and shipped much of it be
cause they were unable to use it , had not
been materially affected It was declared ,
and the brokers were set to thinking. It
did not take them long to figure out with
considerable unanimity that the western
packers , who became heavy buyers of corn
during the closing days of last week , knew
more about the exact situation than they
did themselves , and that the indications of
the serious effect of the drouth had been
seen In the west before they were seen
All these things influenced the market
and the alarm became general. One thing
that averted a panic was the pulling against
each other of wheat and corn. Every con
dition was favorable to forcing wheat down
and corn up. The excitement continued
unabated till the close , with the outlook for
a field day tomorrow.
MADE SOME CHANGES.
lloiiril of I'ulillo Works 1'orcon Ilcorgnnlrol
Under the Nmv Drill.
The reorganization of the street and sewer
departments of the Board of Public Works
won' partially completed yesterday and
the remaining ; vacancies will be filled at a
special meeting of the board this , after
noon. The way was cleared for this action
by a resolution Instructing the secretary to
notify all Inspectors In the street , and sewer
departments that their services "would not Tje
required after July 31. This was adopted ,
and then Sewer Commissioner Balcombe re
ported the following list of appointments ,
which were confirmed : Permit Inspectors ,
Michael Lee and S. Y. Sanson. Sewer Inspector
specter , R. H. Walker. Mr. Walker is not
permanently employed , but draws $4 per day
for all actual service.
This action dispenses with the services of
John Yrack , who was a permit Inspector un
der Major Furay's administration. No criti
cism is passed on Mr. Truck's qualifications
for the position , but his ambition to fill the
place now occupied by Street Commissioner
Kaspar Is the cause of his 4ecaPItRtlon. A
vigorous fight has" been made on him by
some of Kaspar's friends , and his name was
dropped from the list of Inspectors on that
account. His successor , Sanson , was
formerly foreman of the street gang when
Chairman Wlnspear was Etre'et commis
sioner. , ,
Mike Lee retains his old position , and
George J. Hodder and W. 'F. B. Wllcox ,
formerly sewer Inspectors , are dropped.
There Is so little being done now In the way
of sewer construction that It was not thought
advisable to keep moro than one regular
sewer Inspector on the payroll , and the de
partment will economize by getting along
with one man In that position.
Mr. Kaspar was not ready to make his
appointments yesterday , and the employes In
his department will be on the anxious scat
for another twenty-four hours.

The delegates from the Elkhorn valley

W. I. Klerstead drove some twenty-five
miles through Douglas coun'y ' yesterday and
reports three-fourths of thq corn In good
condition. With rain during the week ho Is
sure- that eastern Nebraska Will have at
least three-fourths of an average crop. He
has crosn'cil Iowa , Illinois and Michigan twice
during the last two weeks , and nowhere
does the corn look us well as In the vicinity
of Omaha. A short crop throughout the
country means big prices for corn , hogs and
cattle , Nebraska ) : ) principal productions.
"During times like these , " said
he , "people look 'too much on
the gloomy side of everything , but
they should not be discouraged. With Sep
tember corn In Chicago- selling at 44'/4 cents ,
the farmers of Nebraska will get more dollars
lars for their crop this year than ever before.
Although business Is dull In Omaha , wo
should b thankful that It i ? better than In

and their friends ! found amusement Sun *

mental music , the former rendered by the
Llcdertnfol and the Saengcrbund , .served .
to while away thu hours. Besides there
were the usual number of games which de
light the small boy , his sister and the
ladles. All these things had been arranged
by a commute consisting of Mesdames Gel-
ler , Hcrlnz , llulm , Schneider , Stcffe , Miller ,
Bagscl , Speller and Schgltz. A general su
pervision over games and refreshment coun
ters had been delegated to Christ Bagscl ,
whose untiring efforts made the picnic a suc
cess. J. Brandcls of the Boston store had
made the society a present In the shape of a
costly pockctbook , which was to be presented
on this occasion to the most deserving and
most popular member. Mrs. Hcrlng filled
these qualifications and accordingly she was
presented with the gift by Christ Bayscl.
The afternoon and evening were spent In
pleasant social Intercourse by more aged
people while the younger generation partici
pated In games and dancing. Thu races con
sisted of n ladies' egg race and a fat man's
race. An oscillating biscuit-eating contest
furnished never ending fun. The little
girls played at blind man's buff and the boys
had foot races. In this latter' William
Orcn won first and Henry Jettcr second
prize. Tlllle Schneider was awarded u
couple of vases and Rosa Speller a bottle of
perfume as first and second prlr.es In the

Bavaria , the goddess of that South Ger
man kingdom , attracted a fair sized crowd
of her protegees , as well as their friends , to
Ruscr's park Sunday. The traditional Hen
pictured by her side , gazed dreamily upon a
multitude of merry people. Merry , because
It was the local Bavarian society's annual
picnic and outing , to which all the members
are accustomed to look forward with pleas
ure. Organized In 1888 , the society has
prospered in finances and numbers. It Is
now under the able presldo cf Jacob Houck ,
who Is seconded In his efforts to extend the
Vereln by Jacob Vollmer , secretary. The
Bavarians are a brave and generous people ,
and withal know how to enjoy themselves.
The latter was conclusively proven yesterday
when the park was pcfipled with a lot of
gay men , women and children. They did
not relinquish the.r hold upon the continu
ous rounds of pleasure until a very late
hour. In this they were Joined by a con
siderable number of friends from other Ger
man stotes. As customary on such occa
sions , the younger element of both sexes
Indulged In games and dancing In the well
appointed pavilion , while the older people
sought the more secluded spots under shady
trees and around -the tables , where , over
a glass cf the foaming , reminis
cences we.'e exchanged. An egg race
furnished excltemfint for the ladles ; the
sack race attracted the boys and a foot race
the younger men * Bowling alley contest
furnished sport for others. The program
for this sort of entertainment had been ar
ranged by George Hoffman , Anton Wagner ,
Fritz Plnzensham , Michael Mucnch and Jack
Vollmer. An unusual attraction was fur-
nlslie'd by Fritz Nebor , a second Sandow , In
an exhibition at physical strength. Mr.
Neber , before emigrating to this country ,
was president of the athletic club In Frank-
fort-on-the-Maln. "While sitting In a chair
with his legs Btretched out in a horizontal
position he bore -an them the combined
weight of two men and a heavy Iron bar , all
weighing In thBinelghborhoood of 400 pounds.
A 100-pound weight was raised by him in
one hand and thrpwn to the other. Twelve-
pound bars placctd between two fingers iat
the ends were kept In a horizontal position
for a few minutes. He also bore 700
pounds of weight upon his back and ex
hibited many other tests of his strength.
As usual on such occasions Mrs. Ruser fur
nished a delicious repast In the evening ,
Mr. Ruser was to be found everywhere la
boring for a proper entertainment of his
guests. The bowling alley contest prizes
were won by Mr. Kramer of Council Bluffs ,
Louis Meyer and Fritz Thomas of this city.
The Musicians' Protective Union band fur

BABIKS IN RICH FAMILIES

Every one knows of splendid homes tlm
lack nothing but children.
The rooms with nil their elegance , tool
vacant without the clutter of baby toys , nni
the. smooth , sunny lawns seem wasted with
out n troop of children ploying on them.
Hut when bnbUs do como Into these homes
all that thought and love and \\ciltli can do
combine to keep them healthy , happy am
And yet these little ones , like the count
less children In homes where there Is "little
to earn and many to keep , " are all human
babies , and the things that are really tlielr
health and happiness arc very simple during
the first few years of their lives.
In fact , when parents have inado sure thnt
baby's food Is sufficiently nourishing and
healthy , that there Is plenty of pure air and
absolute cleanliness , they can rsally do noth
ing else. In homes where trained nurses are
employed lactatcd food Is always kept on
hand. And at the first sign of bowel trouble
baby Is put on an exclusive diet of lactatcd
food until the Intestinal disturbance Is
Physicians know of nothing else equal to
lactatcd food to take the place of mother's
milk It Is made for the express purpose of
forming as perfect a substitute for healthy
mother's milk as analysis will sjiow. It Is
pleasant to the taste , and has the unusual
virtue of Inducing delicate babies to take
nourishment when other food disagrees with
their weak stomachs. Lactated food has sav
ed thousands of babies from falling victims
to cholera Infantum by keeping up their
strength , without Increasing , as most food
does at such times , the Irritation In the n-
tcstlncs that is acountable for most of the
fatalities among children In July and Aug
ust.This valuable baby food is everywhere
used In the homes where the most modern
and valuable appliances for securing health
and comfort are met with , and yet the best
of baby foods Is easily within the reach of
the most modest homes.
One hundred and fifty meals can be made
from a $1.00 package , or sufficient to last
about four weeks , making the food prepared
for baby cost less than EC a quart. In thou
sands of unpretentious homes In tlio large
cities especially , this valuable food Is found.
Medical skill can do no more to save ba
bies' lives and to keep them well than It
has clone In the preparation of lactatcd food.
Little Mollle Ward , whose picture Is given
above , Is the charming daughter of Mr. M.
P. Ward of Providence , H. I. , who writes :
"It gives me pleasure to advise you that
our little Mollle is Just four years old today ,
and our youngest little girl , strange to say ,
is flvo months today , both being born on
the third of the month. I thing both of my
babies owe' their good health to lactated food.
It Is tljo bqst food for Infants who cannot
enjoy mother's milk , that there Is on the

when teething had very little trouble.
"I have recommended lactated food hun
dreds of times. "

Sounds "odd" but it fits the case precisely After
a destructive cyclone , you "clear the debris , " and to
wipe it out of memory you must sweep it clean
after a hurricane of business as it is customary to
the Nebraska it behooves us to "clear away the
debris , " or , perhaps , more Bostonishly expressed ,
"To dismiss the of
superfluous conglomeration un
welcome accumulations. "
Right here in Omaha we call 'em odds and
ends good honest merchandise they are to be ,1
sure but of no value to us , because we never car
ry goods to next season and above all , we never
begin a season on broken stock.
You'll find , by carefully looking over , some
thing you can use , in every department and if it
be your style and fit there is a golden strike right
there because the price is likely one half what it
used to be or , perhaps a trifle above ,
In our suit department we have a good many
broken lots of suits can't very well sell 'cm down
to the root , because we have always such a tremendous
deus collection same case with the trousers de
partment for the same reason we have some rem
nants in our boys' and children's department and
iu our hat department and in our shoe deparment
and more so in our men's furnishing stock in
shirts underwear and the like , where the supply
and demand is tremendous.
We firmly believe in cleaning house of broken
lots experience taught us so and we therefore
apply the broom of reduction , and dust off the last
vestige of profit and often below the price they
could be manufactured at.
A sale for mutual benefit we clean house-
you save the stuff.
