Here is a oily of full 250,000 peoplo so ancieut that her early history is lost in myth; so great in the past that notwithstanding her decline for cen-turies a halo of splendor still surrounds her; so learned that she reared tho first university on tho Kuropean continent, furnished a pulpit to Johu Huss, the reformer, and a sepulchre to Tycho du Braho, tho astronomer; so powerful that long before tho oldest now reign-ing dynasty annexed tho kingdom of which she is still the proud capital she had haughty vassals kuoeking humbly at her gates. And yet when the cable reported tho disaster that befell Prague through the rising floods of the river Moldau, nnd located tho city in Poland, how few of us detected the mistake and placed her properly in the center of Hohomia, in Austria. Tho very bridge that was torn away was a triumph of ancient engineering, and had withstood for many centuries not only the torrents of tho same water, but tho impetuous assaults of many an enemy, including Gustavo Adolphus and Frederick the Great. There isn't an inch of ground in and about Prague but what is steeped with human blood. From Libussa and her aniazons of folk loro memory to the chivalrio Ottokar, and from him throughout more than 700 years to tho war of 1800 the grim old city witnessed many a sanguinary coulliet. Here Ziska and the two Prokops carried on a desultory warfare to avenge the mar-tyr death of Huss: here tho devastating thirty years' war began; here the ridic-ulous Frederick, tho "wuiter king." was beaten aud the restoration of the crown of iH. Venceslaus frustrated, and hero the red terror of revolution dwelt for many ages. And yet how few of us knew Prague when her latest calamity made her tho subject of au extensive telegraphic mention.

I am banished to the garret now; My busy days are o'er; Within my sheltering embrace The babies sleep no more. No more, as. in the bygi.ne hours, My dreary heat keeps time In patent, sleepy monotone With the old nursery rhyme: "Kock-a-b- y baby, on the tree-to- p. When the wind blows the cradle will rock. The last rays of the setting sun Slant through the windows small; They liRht the Barret's dusky gloom. And on my head they fall. Along their level hart of old Old pictures come and go; Attain I hear the mother's voice HinniiiK so and low; "Koc-k-- by baby, upon the 1ree-to- When the wind blows the cradle will rock." Ah. me: where ence the baby heads The downy pillows prest. Within my ample uakeu hood The spider has her tie.-:- t.

Down will go cradle and baby and all." UlSlNtSS. During the week just closing the country lias undergone a financial strain that at any time loss propitious might htivo resulted in a panic. Tho strike on the New York Central railroad threat-ened to the last minute to involve all the connecting lines. In Chicago all the building trades promised to join the carpenters if the strike was not soon ended. The interminable) tariff dobate in the senate unsettled business, and finally the largo failures in Hoston and New York caused considerable uneasi-ness. Ordinarily this combination of unfortunate circumstances would have alarmed tho most sanguine, but thanks to tho operation of the silver bill and to the relief in the money market caused by treasury purchases of 4 1 per cent bonds, coupled with better crop pros-pects, tho worst was averted. Husiness may now be said to bo in a hopeful state of expectancy. Final action on the tariff is pending early next week, the labor disturbances have been re-moved or adjusted, and confidence is rapidly returning. The best authori-ties agree that tho volume of domestio trade, and certainly the export of brcadstull's, will bo greater than in any previous year this season. Locally no complaint can be heard except that duo to summer relaxation generally. Money is tight with some pooplo owing to their investments in real estate, but tho clearance returns show not only a gratifying increase but an unprecedented record. Labor is profitably employed, and !the outlook for a heavy fall trade was nover belter. WHEKE THE TIMES IS FOB SALE, Tin S:.t Lakk daily Times Is for sale at Ibe following places: BOTKI.

Faith In the Mines. Ploche Record. A. G. Campbell has let two contracts to sink 101) feet each on two of li's claims situated in Yellow Pine district in the southeastern' portion of the county. Mr. Campbell has great faith in these mines and has already expend-ed a great deal of money in developing them, and we hope soon to hear of him making a rich strike. So far our streets aro paved merely with good intentions. That is poor ma-terial. It Look Dubious. N. Y. Sun. There were two meetings in Chicago on Sunday to protest against tho open-ing of the World's Fair on Sundays. This seems somewhat premature and immature. It is far from certain as yet that the World's Fair will be open on week days. The Chicago Sabbatarians aro tugging at Time's forelock most un-necessarily. Tun Missouri editors were thoroughly pleased with Salt Lake city. It is a contagious affection. Now that we are about it we might as well teach our girls the piano anil our boys tho cornet; then will there bo music in the air. The Future of Utah Lake. Provo Enqu lrer. Thursday's regatta ou Utah Lake demonstrated the fact that our lovely little sheet of water is bound to become very popular in the near future for amusements of this kind. Tho event just past is recorded as the first of the kind on Utah Luke, but we hope to record many similar ones in the future. We hope the police have apprehended the right man who slayed young Caine, and that the courts will make a whole-some example of him. The first congressional district of Maine is the cynosure of all eyes. Will Mr. Reed be on Tuesday? That is the all absorbing question. Thur Know It. Kotchum KeyBtone. The Tribune ought to pay more atten-tion to Salt Lake affairs, and less to foreign territories. It does not appear to be very successful at home, and abroad its opinions are generally con-sidered very "windy," particularly in Idaho. Wk thought Henry ltoehefort was getting too old to indulge in tho French pastime of lighting bloodiess duels, but It seems the spirit of unrest is still in him. VOICES OF THE STREET. A woman with a hungry look and a swarthy complexion, from tho land of harps and hamlorgans; a suckling in-fant with an inherited desire to remain forever at the tyunt which insures its existence, with a future before it as a successful manipulator of tho blind man's refuge and the Italian's amoi-tiou- ; a hairy little monkey witlia dudisli face and a missing link oxoression on its countenance and an irresistablo de-sire to sit down; a greasv tambourine, out of which Ihu army 0 Booth pounds salvation and noises, formed a conglomeration yesterday which attracted tho eye of public at-tention and the nostril of the sensitive individual whoso olfactory nerves have not yet become familiar will) the brazen-faced odois which inhabit tho back alleys and stalk down Main street with no visible means of support. For the insignificant, consideration of ton cents you were allowed to see 7.e monk-- a danc-- a to ze music;. I contributed and 7.0 monk-- a danced. It was not a Virginia hoe-dow- neither was it a full dress cotillion, (if you have any idea what that is) it was moro of a back-wood- s shulllo, or a "cowboy rag." The woman had a cast of countenance the nearest simile to which I can imag-ine, is a charcoal etching of a sewer opening; she hummed a doleful hum, which Was even more vile than tho singing of tho salvation army, if that were possible. As I watched the wretched spectacle, I thought that ono of tho greatest boons that could be con-ferred upon the generations to come by "wo people who are now," would be to see to it that our children are not born in Italy. There is one commendable feature about the Italian, however. He does not aspire to become a policeman. He is satisfied to sell peanuts. .. "Virtue," according to Benjamin Franklin, "is its own reward." But I never could see it that way. If you will notice it is aiwavs the good boy who dies young; tfie ward politician gets the "ra"ke off" from the campaign; tho wire-pulle- r is sent to congress; the goodly parson gets pound parties while the successful campaigner is given checks for thousands; the honest man wears trousers that point to his circum-stances and seem to say, "poor devil, he don't know anything, except to be honest;" tho good' girl grows up to be an old maid with cats and dogs In her house, while her dancing sister marries a saloon keeper and has children and a piano; the sensible youth is run down by a street car, while the dude who wears a sash lives to a ripe old age; the mother's boy who carries in wood at night and builds lires in the morning loses his digestion and has the gout bo-- . fore he is thirty, while his brother who played hookey from school and got into trouble every other day draws a prize in the Lousiana Slate lottery and mar-ries the only daughter of an ice man. Virtue may be its own reward, but it would seem that the "other follow" always gets the best of it. Did you ever see a great man in the act of thinking ponderous thoughts? It is a sublime sight. Acornsheller running at full speed is insignificant in comparison. Tomorrow is a blank leaf in the his-tory of tho evening newspaper. The holy quiet of God's day is not disturbed by tho rumbling press of the evening newspaper. Tho editor and tho com-positor enjoy a day of rest. But it is different with the morning journal There is no pause to contemplate the glory of tho Sabbath day. No respite li'tuu tho weary grind of newspaper lifo. There is as much rush and worry as upon a week d&y ami the human machine works on until death marks a pause a comma, for a new machino replaces the old and the great journal does not stop. Men fado from Bight, but new ones are ever ready to fill their places and tho hurried reader is in-structed, educated, amused as though the hands of old hold the pen or sot the typo. Tomorrow is also the day when the grasping dispenser of liquors closes his front door. Tomorrow is also tho day when the pealing of tho Sabbath bells arouses twenty peoplo from slumber in time to catch the 1 :43 train for Garfield Beach while arousing one repentant sinner to come to church. it But it is so much easier to wash the dirt away in the waters of the lake than it is to wash tho sins away in tho blood of the Lamb. I sat for two mortal hours in a par-quett- e chair at tho theater tho other night and suffered through an abortiou of a comedy-dram- a sailing under the title of "Lady Peggy." Airs. Shallow-hoa- d was also there. She sat in the dress-circl- e to my loft. I also noticed Mrs. l'roudazl in the dress-circl- e to my right. They- - each Mrs. S. and Mrs. 1'. had opera glasses and devoted the bulky portion of their time iu focussing each other with their glasses. First Mrs. S. would staro at Mis. V. Then Mrs. P would staro at Mrs. S. Thou they would stare at curb other. In the meantime the play kept right ou as though it were replete with startling situations and instructive morals. But it was indifferent to Mrs. P. and Mrs. S. They came to see and be seen. And 1 gues they accomplished their object. The most insigniticant personage came under their opera glass staro and the minutest portion of their visible anat-omy was carefully examined. Why? I don't know. I have never met any one who did. Unless upon tho hypo-thesis that a vacant mind is easily tilled. At any rale it is a pernicious practice this infernal, diabolical scru-tiny through tho opera glass, and if not good sense should abol-ish it. Cklbe Clake. MI.VKU 1II IT. The estimates for the world's wheat harvest for tho present year, presented at the recent millers' convention in Edinburgh, give a total for Europe of 1")5,700,00() quarters. The estimated total consumption for Europe is 0 quarters, leaving a balance to be obtained from other parts of the world of 19,300,000 quarters. The countries having an average crop, or above the average, aro Austria, Hun-gary, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Holland, Italy, Norway nnd Sweden, Portugal, Roumauia, Russia, including Poland, Sorvia, Spain and Switzerland. Those below tho average aro Bulgaria, France, Turkey in Europe, nnd the United Kingdom. Tho English deficiency that is, the amount which must bo obtained from foreign sources is put at 10,000,000 quarters, or about the equivalent of the European deficiency. These statistics are prob-ably as nearly correct as any that can bo given, and they aro quite satisfac-tory, but what is astonishing is to find an eastern paper like the Boston Herald to admit that the recent silver legisla-tion will give tho United States a prac-tical monopoly on the supply of the above deficiency. This is yhat that paper says about it: The Increase In the price nt silver will tend to rostrlet shipments from Imll i forthe reason th;it the profit on these HMrmirntKhaH for some time p;ist been found In the premium obtained by tho purchase of silver for ptiyment of In illun wheat with the gold coin obtained for its sale In E irope. It has been held by some KuhIIhIi authorities that, If silver went to Its old piano of equality with mold, shipments of wheat from India would be ImpoKslble, since It would bettor pay the Inhabitant of that great empire to coumims their wheat t han to send It abroad. And as a matter of fact India is, of recent years, the main competitor with the United Slates in the wheat markets of Europe With her pauper farm labor and almost limitless area of productive hind, she needed nothing but sufficient means of transportation to tho Mediter-ranean sea to supply tho world, and English capital has been very active within tho past ten years to furnish that need by the building of extensive rail-roads from the interior to the seaports. India wheat is said to be soft and there-fore inferior to tho American grain, but this defect is made good by mixing tho Indian with Australian wheat, which latter is' very hard and also car-ried in English bottoms and controlled by English capital, and the two to-gether make a very superior article for Hour. Amcrican economists have predicted that tho day would come when this country would bo unable to export a singlo bushel of wheat. India on ono hand and Australia with her two crops a year on the other, not to say anything about South America and Canada, they claimed, would shut us out and make wheat raising unprofitable iu this coun-try. Can liberal silver legislation pre-vent this calamity? It certainly looks so. Wicked KIco. Rico, Col., News. Nearly every city in the San Juan is clamoring for a "Sunday closing law" except Rico. Our people never indulge ou Sunday only on very private occa-sions. No salvation army government for Rico, thank you. , seems to bo the principle branch of study to be pursued iu our public schools. A double-barrele- ap-pointment of vocalists has been made for that purpose. (iold There. Murray (Idaho) Sun. Two gold bricks were brought to the bank on Monday by the Moilier Looc owners. They weighed 177 value, SJOn.KI. This was the proceeds of the arastra run. A lad by tho nan e of Foyo was re-cently cured to death of a case of dysen-tery by prayer treatment. Is it really impossible to suppress the fatal theory that is at variance both with the wis-dom of the ago and with modern re-search? The christian scientists re-main undeterred by the numerous cas-ualties they create. The Hohiii In Mout poller. Observer. Three nice dwelling houses are being erected and daily application for more, and still we don't boom! Oh, no! Mont-pelie- r is fast going ahead. Mn. IIawley of t ho clearing house estimates that the clearance record for the week will mount up to $'J, t00,00O, a most remarkable iigure. When it' is considered that threo bank, to wit., the SCion's savings, tho Utah national and the National bauk of tho republic, aro not included in tho list the showing be-comes almost fabulous for a city of 50,000' inhabitants. No other city can rival it. Alta Same Here. Opden Commercial. Now is the time when it is in the power of the city council to do more for Ogdon than has ever been done be-fore. To fewnton is it given to round out a quarter century of married life, nnd to fewer still to enjoy tho anniversary in the midst of warm friends and in the height of public usefulness. In another column will be found au account Of the silver wedding celebration of Marshal and Mrs. Parsons last night, and Tub Times is glad to chime in tho merry ring of congratulations to the gentle-man and his estimable wife. May they live to commemorate their golden wed-ding in health and prosperity. It is said tho pope is about to issue an diet against tho practice of hypnotism. Anyone watching tho antics of a St. Louis medium who is "converting" large numbers, especially of women, to see celestial visions, will wish the popo's edict in this case would become a law in this land. Iu the meantime the leading physicians of St. Louis have appealed to tho city officials to stop the strange proceedings of tho medium who operates on her victims by "sug-gestion" hypnotizing thora into CLIPPED AND CONDENSED. People who say sharp things get the reputation of boing blunt. The Krupp guns cost so much a ton, tho present price being $850 per ton. The fashionable girl of the period now carries two fans buckled to hor waist. It is tho style. One of the profitable papers in France is the Paris Figaro. It makes an auual dividend of 000. Newspaper business has a fiourshing look in New York City. There are seven millionaire editors iu that city. Andrew Lang is said now to be oil' with the old love in current literature. He has gone from Haggard to Kipling. The Chinamen of New York have given to the josf, at 10 Mott street, a new unbrella which they had brought over from China. It is covered with dragons and other monsters with glit-tering eyes, and is said to have cost $400. Tho latest scheme for a charitable in-stitution in New York is a hospital for itinerant cats and harness dogs. This scheme is fostered by several charitably inclined women who have witnessed tho persection to which these animals have been subjected, and it has at last as-sumed a delinito shape and will now in all probability bo carried out to their utmost satisfaction. It is indeed a remarkable tale which is told from Diarbekir (Turkey in Asia) by tho Turkish j journal, the Tarik. During a recent tempest there were showered from the skies neither hail-stones nor rain drops, but grains of millet. The inhabitantsof Melessa and Mnhal have gathered the grain and stored it, and grinding it for bread. This beats the frog showers, to say nothing of green rain aud red snow. The suicide of a gunner nt the Rovnl Marine Artillery Bai racks at lVr s mouth throws much light on the epide- mic of insubordination, which seems infecting the whole English service. Although the coroner's jury returned a verdict of suicide during temporary lusanity, it was clearly a case of suicide from overwork. The man was em-ployed in the shoemaker's shop in the barracks, and, with extra drills, had to toil terribly fourteen hours a day. Professor Charles A. L. Totten, of 1 ale, who recently announced his identification of "Joshua's Long Day " now claims he has placed axactly'tiie onlv other stoppage of time recorded in the Bible.

At auy rate, a species of Suit Lake city sandwiches handed out by tho gallant chief caused a good deal of amazement, not amnsemeut, from which some of the guests have not yet fully recovered. A description by Col. Stanton of tho ingredients of his Salt Lake sandwiches, with diagram, might make interesting reading in the Po-lice Gazette.
