The Band Rosen,
As was expected the Baada Rosea played
to a greatly Increased audience at the
Orpheum theater Monday night aad though
the weather was threatening there were few
vacant seats In the house. The word hsd
gons forth that this organization Is con
siderably above the ordinary, that it Is ea
titled to be classed with the best of con
cert bands and the Omaha music-loving
public was quick to taks ths hint. The
management expects ths crowds to con
tinue Increasing in ths same ratio to the
close of the engagement.
The most notable numbers on ths - pro
gram Monday night were the "Toreador's
Song" from "Carmen," the "Ride of the
Valkyries," the "Rococo Serenade," the
"Second Hungarian Rhapsody," f'Ave
Marie." the overture "Mlgnoa" and the
"Willow Grove March." the latter one of
Sorreatlno's compositions. Ths "Hungarian
Rhapsody" seemed to takei especially well.
It has a brisk, rollicking movement, with
quick changes of mood, and tha applause
which greetld it was so spontaneous as
to be almost hysterical; It would burst
forth at the most unexpected times, aad
at the cloee arose to tumultuous encore.
There were many requests to have It re
peated at tonight's performance and Sor
reatlno has honored them.

The week ending June 23 was abnormally
cool In all districts east of the Rocky
mountains, except slong ths south At
lantic and gulf coasts, with mors or less
damaging frosts in the central snd northern
sections of the Rocky districts, the Da

relief In portions of the central gulf states
end over very limited areaa In Texas, but
in much the greater part of the state no
rain has fallen and high temperatures have
prevailed. Portiona of the lower Missouri
al.ey and lower lake region continue to suf
fer from excessive rains. The conditions
on the Pacific coast were favorable, not
withstanding the prevalence of hot, drying
winds In Washington.
The unseasonably low temperatures have
checked the growth of corn over the north
ern portion of the corn belt and cultiva
tion baa been retarded by rains In portions
of the upper Ohio valley, upper lake re
gion and upper Missouri valley. In the
lower Missouri valley, Oklahoma. Ken
tucky, Tennessee and the middle and south
ern Atlantic states the crop has made fa
vorable progress. In the central gulf states
early corn has been seriously Injured by
drouth and In Texas the crop la the poorest
for a number of years.
Winter wheat harvest has been delayed
by rain In the lower Missouri valley, but
has progressed favorably in the Ohio val
ley and middle Atlantic states. The crop
has experienced no unfavorable conditions
during the week, although the low tem
peratures hsve checked ripening over the
northern portion of the winter wheat atates,
where the heade are filling welL In Ore

prevailed, but wheat has escaped Injury,

Roof of a Chicago Skyscraper to Re
Lifted Six Feet.
Chicago's Masonic . temple needs more
room. The twenty-one story structure Is
crowded. The mansgement of the building,
says the Record-Herald.. Is making plans tor
the addition of a new story to the etructure.
The work Involved fn this contemplates the
raising of the immense dome of the build
ing six feet and the lowering of the theater
floor six feet, giving twelve feet more of
perpendicular he!ght.fcThe additional room
thus secured will bo-rVUllsed for. the the
ater, which Is to be enlarged in every way.
It Is expected that work- will begin early
In October of this year and It will be car
ried 00 without disturbance to the more
than 4.000 occupants of the building or the
44,000 people who dally go in and out of
the etructure. The total amount of iron
and steel to be moved in making the alter
ations Is 3,000,000 pounds, or about 1,500
tons. The greater portion of this is in the
observatory dome. Ths work will be done
S54 feet In the air.
Beneath the dome of the building at the
present time is the floor utilised for the
theater. The component parts of the floor
and dome are iron, steel, hard wood, ce
ment, mosaic and brick. When the whole
waa put Into position it was with a view
to permanency and endurance. The build
ers of the period twelve years ago bad no
idea that any mechanical device could ever
be Invented which could change the posi
tion of this roof with safety to the tenants
of tho building or. the public In the streets
But twelve years ago is a long time in
the history of the -world these times.
Recently the builders took out the
central base column of the Auditorium
Annex, the column which supported 210
tons of weight removed It entirely with
out closing the building or csuslng the
slightest Injury to It. Indeed, the build
ing was stronger poised after the work was
dose than before. So that now the propo
sition to raise the Immense roof of the
Masonic temple six feet and lower the floor
beneath It six foot, thus enabling the build
ing to acquire a new and additional story,
must be only a matter of wonder to the
outside world, which keeps little spsce of
what engineers are doing.
Next October the builders will come with
ysrda of csbls snd chains, tackle and Jack
screws, and as unconcernedly as though
mefely moving a frame shanty will hoist
up the largest dome roof In the west, lower
a floor and create the new story deelred.
The use of compressed air and Jacka to
change the structural character of big
buildings Is of recent date, but since their
application the improvements In ths pro
cesses ussd have been rapid. Fifty per cent
of the big buildings of Chicago are on what
Is called floating foundations. When their
foundations wereNpIaced they went down
only fourteen 'or fifteen feet ' below the
street datum snd rested on the blue clay
base of the city.
Now piling, both steel and wood. Is driven
ninety feet down and ooncrete follows, as
In tbs case of the new Marshall Field
building, and better foundations sre pro
vided. The old buildings with the floating
foundations have aettled much and It la
here that the compressed air and Jacks
come as much Into ptay aa they do In hoist
ing domes skyward. It Is not necessary, for
legitimate financial . reaaons, to mention
titles, but there Is a certain sky scraper In
Chicago that settles every spring and every
time that it does the buildera must go in
snd Jack it up.
As soon aa the boiler basement room anJ
laundry begin to fill with mud and water
ooxing up from ths clay beneath the build
ers go la and raise the foundation to Its
original baae, clean out the muss snd go
sway, not thinking that anything remark
able had been done. The building Itself Is
not unsafe, not dangerous at all. If Is a
paying piece of property, but it was con
structed before the days of modern founda
tions and It is paying tbs penalty of the
ignorance of an earlier time.
. There is another aky scraper of Chicago
that went up 00 a floating foundation aad
aix months after It was completed tilted
forward, sinking oa one side. Tha buildera
Jacked it back into position aad made it
permanently solid. v
