General Korniloffs armies in east
ern Galicia have been held up for a
time by the hurrying of heavy con
tingents of German reserves to the
front, stiffening the Austrian defense
along the Lomnica river.
The holding of this river line is
vital to the safety of the Teutonic
position, not only in this part of the
frontier, but northward to the Ga
lician border, and that stubborn re
sistance would be offered there had
Activity on West Front
Meanwhile there is notable activity
along the Franco-Belgian front The
French at Verdun have just com
pleted an important operation in the
realignment of their front northwest
of Verdun, which was disturbed by
German attacks in the vicinity ' of
Hill 304 late last month. ;
The French, in fact, have carried
their successful counter attack even
beyond the original line and drove
-nearly two-thirds of a mile into the
German front from Avocourt wood' to
wrst of Hill 304. . . . " e -,
The new ground is being firmly
held, several .counter thrusts under
taken by the crown prince's troops
last night being repulsed.
On the British front there is pro

been a notable amount of heavy work
done by the artillery, particularly

WAGGONER HIGH IN
Oilier Shooter Takes Top Mark
at St. Joseph, Losing But One
. Target of Hundred Shot
at in Match.
St Joseph, Mo., July 18. (Special
Telegram.) Minnesota's only entry
in the western handicap took down
high honors in the preliminary of the
big handicap shoot this afternoon, B.
r, Veaen of fipestone, Minn., break
ing 99 of a possible 100 birds. The
shooting of Veach was of the big fea
tures of the tournament thus far.
A world's record was broken when
Phil Miller of St Louis, the youngest
professional trapshooter in the world,
broke 92 targets at a twenty-three
yard handicap. The nearest ap
proach to this, according to Tom
Narsgall, champion trapshooter of the
world, was 97 targets broken in the
Grand American at the same distance.
Waggoner Takes Honors.
In the western special, held in the
forenoon, Cal Waggoner of Diller,
Neb., took highest honors, losing but
one target of the 100, but there were
several who were dose up on - his
heels with 98.
In this same event W.'L. Crosby of
O'Fallon, 111., a former member of
the American team which crossed the
Atlantic in 1901 and won the world's
championship, also broke 98, but, of
course, does not come within the
prize money offered. Edward O'Brien
of Florence, another professional,
also equaled this rrftirk and two 98
marks were established by C. B.
Spencer and Phil Miller, both of St.
Koyen in the Van.
In the .western handicap prelim

Veach, three were tied for second, C.

of the federal land bank bonds.
The board also accepted a bid of a
Lincoln firm to install a new boiler
in the heating plant at the capitol at
an expense of $5,140.
The board voted to put a new roof
on the state house, using the appro
priation made for that purpose and
other repairs made by the legislature.
School land contracts have not
been listed for taxation, in many in
stances, the board discovered, and In
the future no extension of contracts
will be made unless the parties desir
ing the extension can show that they
have been paying taxes on the con
tracts. The board bought ?25,000 of bridge

(From a Statf Correapondent.)
Lincoln, July 18. (Special.) Dep
uty State Superintendent J. A. Wood
ard received a letter this morninsr
from C. J. Simonds, formerly of Uni
versity Place, who is doing missionary
work in Poona, India.
The letter has been eight weeks on
the road and the writer said he was
very well pleased with his work al
though little inconveniences like
plague, cholera and typhoid fever
raged occasionally. Mr. Simonds had
been vacinated for plaugue ' and
typhoid already, and when the cholera
season comes he expects to take a
preventive for that
Mr. Simonds says that rats and
flees are the main cause of the spread
of these diseases, ats abound in great
numbers and fleas have a habit of
sticking to the rats. The latter die
and the fleas leave them , and many
times take up their vocations on the
natives. A flee bite means plaugue,
cholera or typhoid as the case may
