It has gotten to be a common thing 1 (ol small sums of money to be transferred by cable between New York and London. A $20 order may be flashed, under the 'Atlantic from New York In ample time tc serve as a shopping fund In London 'the same afternoon. And the transfer Is cheaper and easier now, not to any doubly more speedy, than It was a few years tigo to send ten times the amount. Few pedple realize how closely the great cities of the world are connected by chained lightning and how cosmopolitan civilized huumrtlty has become: The telegraph companies do this sortof banking business by wire every day between the cities of America. But it won't send f 1, nor $1,000 at any price across the ocean. Banks wJH cable money in large amounts, or for valued customers, but only at a cost prohibitive to modern pocketbooks. The great banking houses will not transfer a smaller snm than £10, and then only at the rate oti $S per pound sterling, irrespective of current rates of exchange.

A Urf«-tul Precaution. It is a useful precaution for the tourist, the commercial traveler, or the emigrant to the West, to take along Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. Invalids who travel by steamboat or rail should provide themselves with it, in order to preventer remedy the nausea which the ja'ring and vibration of vehicles In transitu often causes them. Wastly preferable is it for this simple, but needful purpose, tp the heady unmedl- cated stimulants of commerce. On board ship, It not only remedies sen sickness, but neutralizes the pernicious effects of water slightly brackish, which, if unqualllled, is apt to give rise to irregularities of the bowels, cramps in the abdominal region, and dyspepsia. To the aerial poison of malaria it is an efllctent antidote. Sick headache, heart-burn, and wind upon the stomach, are promptly bandished by it. It healthfully stimulates the kidneys and bladder, and nullifies the early symptoms of rheumatism. mwf ' Buncombe will have many solicitors and pleaders in Congress this year.

To see a farmer take his stock to market now-a-days, which la a Comparatively easy job, one hardly realizes that It was but a dozen years since taking hogs to market meant 9 long, tedious and aggravating drive over the road which seemed a good deal longer behind hogs, and by the way, we ,verily believe a hog head was put on the wrong end by mistake. If one does not believe it let him try to drive one. Now it Is but a small matter to load up hogs, cattle or sheep in wagons and trot oft at a good smart gait How many are they that know that the now indispensible article,—the shoveling board, was almost an unheard of thing 80 years ago?
