Boston Jon run). (Item)
We hear a good deal less tlian we
did while ago about the need of
more currency, outside of the ranks
of Alliance statesmen, who appear to
think that it lies within t ho province
of the Ciovernment not only to issue
an indefinite quantity of money hut
to provide some means for getting it
into tlie pockets of every man who
wunts it. No serious pressure for
money is being felt now among those
who have commodities or labor to
exchange for it. The currency in
circulation, which lias an insignifi
cant place any way in business trans
actions as compared with the various
instruments of credit, seems to be
ample for all present needs. It has
escaped the observation of many that
we have actually added a good deal
something like $90,000,000 to $100,
000,000 to the volume of the curren
cy within a year, this sum represen
ting an actual net increase. Under
the silver law we are increasing the
currency still further by about $1,500,
000 per month in silver certificates.
Moreover, one of the acts of Congress
in its closing hours provided a fur
ther increase by directing the re-coin
age of the $22,500,000 of uncurrent
silver coin and some $0,000,000 of
trade dollars now in the treasury
Here will be a direct addition to the
resources of the Treasury and the
volume of the currency to the extent
of nearly $.'50,000,000 from this source
alone. It is not the quantity of the
currency, but the continued good
duality of it. which is a matter of
We desire to say to our citizens,

great popularity purely on their

Annihilation of Time.
The utter annihilation of time and
space by electricity was never better
illustrated than by an incident which
occurred on the coast of India, where
two English ships were repairing a
telegraph cable near Bombay : "The
two ships were but half a mile apart
one of them holding the shore end of
the cable in close communication
with Bombay, the other having the
sea end, which was connected with
Aden. It became necessary for the
two ships to communicate with each
other in order to complete the work
This was done by one of them tele
graphing to Bombay and thence
around to Aden, and the other from
Aden around to liombay. Thus, as a
speedy means of sending messages
half mile, they were sent around by
a route nearly 4,000 miles in length."
Here it is, and it tills the bill muc
better than anything we could say

Five Ways to Cure a Cold.
I. Bathe the feet in hot water and
take a pint of hot lemonade. Then
sponge with salt water and remain in
a warm room.
1. Uathe the face in very hot water
every five minutes for an hour.
3. Snuff up the nostrils hot salt wa
ter every three hours.
4. Inhale ammonia or menthol.
5. Take four hours active exercise
in the air. A ten-grain dose of qui
nine will usually break up a cold in
the beginning. Anything that will
set the blood in active circulation will
do it, whether it be drugs or the use
of a bucksaw.
