sneers a Democratic contemporary.
"He was United States senator when
Cleveland was a hangman?" retorts
a Eepublican contemporary. For
Heaven's sake gentlemen be calm.
The summer is still in front of us
and watermelons are just coming in.
The S. F. Alta man is still nosing
around Harrison's family graveyard
and digging up the mossy marble3 on
forgotten graves. He ha3 just learned
that a second cousin of Harrison's
brother-in-law's step-mother thought
in 1842 that the earth was hollow as

Thebe are very few things in
this ridiculous little world of ours
worth getting angry about, and the
world is big enough for us alL Prin
cipally for this reason it is sad to see
quarrels among our newspaper breth
ren of the Willamette valley. To
call a brother newspaperman an ass,
while only a figure of speech, ia not a
happy comparison; to intimate that
the brilliant genius who guides and
guards editorial columns is not fitted
by nature or education to carry intes
tines to a bear, i3 equally open to ob
jeotion. It may be that the prevalent
warmth ia the Willamette valley hath
occasioned this irritability,but it is none
the less unseemly, that our esteemed
cons, should so exhibit a lack of
The enormous trade which is being
done in violets at Paris this year is
reported to bo duo to the discovery
recently mado by a woll-knowna nthor.
He has got a sight of the recipe used
by the empress Josephine as a mean3
of rendering her "beautiful forover,"
and to whioh she owed that marvel
ous tint which was the wonder and
despair of the French ladies of tho
time. The wife of Napoleon used to
have boiling milk poured over a basin
full of violet flowers, and with this
decoction she bathed her face and
neck every morning. No sooner was
this secret brought to light than the
Parisian ladies began to order great
basketfuls of violets to be left at their
doors daily, and this home-made cos
metic is reported to be in daily use
this season by thousands.
The Newspaper Business.
First of all, I want to say that the
newspaper business is, to my mind, a
purely commercial enterprise. I do
not believe that newspapers are pub
lished for the good of the public.
That is to say, I do not believe that
philanthropy enters into the question
in the slightest degree. The news
paper business is carried on in much
the same way as any other business
let us say, the shoe business, for in
stance, by way of example. The man
who sells shoes is anxious to get all
tne trade no can. lie tries to buy a
better article than his competitor.
and he tries to sell it cheaper. By
so doing he gains trade and many
dollars. The newspaper editor aims
to be more enterprising than his rival.
He tries to set more and better news
and special articles in advance of his
neighbor, and in that way gives his
newspaper standing for enterprise
and ability. Foster Uoates in Sun
shine. Reducing tho Surplus.
The disposition of the Surplus in the
u. a. Treasury engages tne attention of
has our attention, and that is the reduc
tion ot the surplus consumptives. Since
the discovery and introduction of Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion, there has been a marked decrease
in the mortality from this dreaded dis
ease, and it is possible to still farther re
duce the number of Consumptives.
How? By keeping constantly at hand
a bottlo of Dr. King's New Discovery,
and using according to directions, upon
the appearanco of the first symptoms,
such as n Cough, a Cold, a Sore Throat,
a Chest or Side Pain. Taken thus early
a cure Is guaranteed.

of justice caught to-day another of

upon the representatives ot law in the
persons of inspeotor Bonfield and

A WAB OF BATES.
New Yobk, July 25. Yesterday
was probably the most disastrous day
of the season in the war of freight.
The rates of $1.20 and 72 cents per
one hundred pounds on dry goods and
cotton piece goods respectively from
New York to Missouri river points
via rail, nas created a great deal of
comment What is perhaps even
more decided evidence of prolonga

yesterday tariff rates to Salt Lake and
all other common Utah points were
declared by all roads.
