The public Hohools of Salt Lake City will now be iu charge of the Gentiles, Ibe Mormons having beeu badly beateu at the recent eleotion. The dayB of Mormouiam aro numbered; defeat is following deleat with gratifying regularity. Those who entertain hopes that tho reported peach crop failure was, as generhlly heretofore, false, will be disappointed. We may as well accept the situation and - beoorae resigned to the I'ttct there will be no feast this year of the Iuscioub fruit.

He is Much Pleased "With the Showing the Defenders of the State. of WORK OF INSPECTION CONCLUDED Some people seem to attach weight to the fact that Harper's Weekly is against tho Pennsylvania Republican ticket and platform. They must have overlooked the fact that the Harpers are agaiost every thiag that savors of Republicanism since Mr. Blaine declined to give them his book to print. Then the Weekly and the Harpers, with George William Curtis, dropped out of the Republican party. The growth of Australia has become so great that a bill has been introduced into the Parliament to construct 1,077 miles of railways of country lines and thirty-nine miles of Melbourne suburban lines, to coat $62,500,000, besides a grant from the Treasury of 810,000,000. The Premier who introduced the bill declared that the census showed the increase in population to be greater in proportion than that of America. Ex-Klsg Milan is meeting the fate of all vagabond tramps. He can find no resting place for the soles of his feet. He Bowed the wind and is reaping the whirlwind, fie fled from Paris and is now in Belgrade. He cannot return to his usual haunts, owing to the enormous debts hanging over him. Iu Paris alone he owes $300,000, and Servia is the only place where he can go. Even in that country he is despised for hia aotionB toward the divorced Nataile. In* Arkansas a curioue political spectacle Is to be seen. There is the hottest kind of a political canvass in progress for Governor. The Democratic State Convention nominated James P. Eagle, who has been Governor two years and is an ardent Baptist minister. The Labor Union party also nominated a Democrat, N. B. Fizer, who has been a Methodits minister for twenty-five years. Both are on the stump, lighting each other, instead of the enemy of all mankind. The Republicans are turning to & man in aid of the Methodist parson. DrjniNO the summer months newspaper purchasers certainly get the full worth of their money. Business is comparatively dull and many advertisers seemingly conclude that at this season of the year it does not pay to advertise. Immediate beneficial results may not become apparent, but those who are of that way of thinking are referred to the fact that the meu who have built up the largest trade are those who have advertised nil the year round. This is the season when buyers of uowspapers have more leisure to read them than at any other, aud consequently are more apt to scan advertisements with increased interest. Retail dealers who are shrewd, and have goods to sell that are staple and in general demand, are the ones whoought to recognize the fact that true business policy suggests the constant keeping of themselves bofore the public. President Harrison'* ComtUK Not Yt>t Dell uitely Settled, But it la Halted That He Will Be on Band To-BIorrow-Strength of the Three Brlfiatleft-TUo Original I'uckage Bill. Mt. Gretna, July 22.-Tho event of the day in the camp of the National Guard was tho arrival of Governor Beaver. Ife came from Harrisburg, and was received with distinguished honors, the usual artillery salute and ceremonial signaling bis advent in the camp. After refreshing himself he was joined by his staff and General Snowden aud staff, aud together tlicy made a tour of tho field. Governor Beaver was much pleased, aud expressed himself aB delighted with the arrangement and conduct of the camp. He will review the troops at 4:'J0 to-tuor-row afternoon. Seven regiments were inspected to day, and the work of inspection was practically concluded. To monow Colonels North and Krumb-haar will leave for Washington to escort the presidential party to Mt. Gretna. It is not definitely settled that President Harrison will be here Thursday, but it is hoped at headquarters that he may be induced to come. Division Surgeon Egle reports the sanitary arrangements aa excellent and cites the good health of the soldiers as evidence. There were numerous drills to-day, and the routine of camp duty was carried out satisfactorily. The three brigades have the following It'i a CJrnit Trick for Drummers Who Wunt to Appear Liberal. From the Ntw York Bun. A drummer for a largo wholesale clothing house has a trick which he says savts him a great deal of money. Ho has to go aiound with retail dealers in smull country towns a great deal. He finds that au amount uf display and extravagauco is necessary in order to coovince them of the ataudini; aud geuerous dealing of his house. This used to cost him a groat deal of money in travel'ug expenses. He was expected to bear a great part of the expenses of entertaining tho men to whom he sold goods; he had to buy cigars and take thoQi around. In the course of this he had to drink a good deal himself, He notiued that it was not so much the amount of money that he spent, but the sbow that he made with it which impressed them, and that it was more important to seem careless and generous than really to spend a groat deal of money. One night ho was with some retail clothiers and their friends drinking. Ue had several small bills in his pocket. He had beon drinking a good deal himself, and in a reckless way pulled out a bill and lit a cigar with it. Without thinking ho put out the light and stuck the burned remnant in his waistcoat pocket. He noticed how it impressed the men with whom he was. Tho bill did not amount to any more than the price of a round of drinks or cigars, but it made the eyes of his customers open to think that a man should use money in such a reckless way. | The next day when he sobered up, he found the burned bill In his pocket; only oue end of it had been burned. He thought that he had made a fool of himself by throwing away good money. The idea occurred to him, however, that possibly bo could take the bill around to the Sub- TERSELY TOLD HAPPENINGS.

While the regulars can give guardsmeu points on somethings it is ad milled that the latter can give Uncle Sam's soldiers some valuable suggestions. To-night General Gobin, commander of the Third Brigade, detailed 300 officers and men for picket duty on South Mountain. They were given the last of actual service n war times. In the tour of the camp by the medical staff Company I), Eighth reg-ment was given credit for passing the best inspection.

After passing the Original Paok3g*}biJI the House took up the Bankruptcy bill, the consideration of which consumed tbe balance of the aftcr-nouu. To Proceed to Mount OretiiH. Washington, July 22.-Captaiu C. B. dears' corps of engineers has been ordprcd to proceed without delay to the encampment of tbe Pennsylvania National Guard, at Mt. Gretna, for the purpose of assisting in tho inspection of the troops. A WiioiIfcunrin'h Lt'X Hiokeii, Joseph Legre, employed at a lumbor job on Morris Ruu, was severely injured a few days ago by a limb falling from n tree and striking him. He was badly injured on the head and shoulders. next time he was in town he took the burned bill to tho Sub-TroaBury, where it was readily exchanged for a new one. The bill had not been destroyed, it was plain what its denomination number and issue were, and he bad no trouble in having it replaced. The idea became strong in his mind that he might do the ostentatious and reckless act without having to pay for it. So the next time he was out with several of his customers he bought a few lounds of drinks and then began in a reckless aud careless way to burn up one and two-dollar bills. He took pains to put the bills back in his pocket, and not to burn up enough of any one bill to destroy its redeemable qualities. He also told his easterners extravagant stories about the percentages his house was paying him, how cheap it was selling, and what liberal concessions he was making to get lid of tho stock which his bouse had on band. He found tho trick woikcd excellently. He has been carrying it ou ever since to a greater or less extent. One night be held a card party of some of bis enstomers at his rooms at the hotel, and, thinking that possibly they might notice that he immediately put the bills out and put them back in his pocket, be used dollar bills for lighters during the whole evening, and then threw them into cuspidor which he kept by his chair, first putting thorn out tofore he put them so that they might not bo burned up there. After his customers had left he took the cover of the cuspidor, took the bills out. folded them all up, and redeemed them when ho next returned to New York, lie has gained tho reputation of being one of tbe most; careless and extrav-gant men c>n the road, without its costing him as much for expenses with hia customers p.b it costs other salesmen who do not bum up lb,fir money.
