all the business in a strictly fair and

with his manner and the newspaper publisher
encouraged him in his trade, if is
business grew rapidly and largely. The
great interest in the State campaint and i
the great Presidential contest with the '
long continued excitement as to the
result, largely increased the sales of
newspapers and correspondingly added to
the profit*. Young Broom in suiuo weeks i

We are now at one of the tno?t beaatiul
place* in Europe, and at one of the
H?t hotel* anywhere. We are on Lake
Lucerne, and at the rlak of having my
aate questioned I pronounce it farsupe*
ior to Couio in every respect. There are
wentr touriiU here to one at Como.
rhi* lake, ?nd the other* near it, are
ilu<JU?d along the shore* with lovely
rillage* about a mile apart, and to spend
?summer at anyone of them If as near
o being iu Paradise as any earthly comorta
can afford. Good health and plenty
A money are the only requiaitea. After
eafiou Milan we had considerible
IHIigence riding, and I got
terj tired of It. We came up
tirough the St. Gnthard pass in the
Vlpx and of course had a glorious acen>ry.
We had a remarkable excursion ycater>
lay. It wax to the summit of the moun*
ain Kigikulru. Took ateamer here to a
>eautiful village called Vitznan, on the
ake, at which place we ascended to the
op of the mountain by rail. Jaat think
>f it! It is moat remarkable. The road
ip 1< a common track of rails firmly
ixed on sleeper*. In the centre there
una a third or cogged rail. It consist*
>f a continuation of two longitudinal
ron bar*, through which the cogs, made
>i wrought iron, are put in and riveted.
Hie erg* catch the cogged and propelling
wheel of a curiously constructed engine.
3a thc?e cogi the engine worka its way up

ire found elegant hotels and in fact a
rourg town. The panorama below was
upcru. Ai it-axi six laaea were in view
ind probably forty villages. The ateamira
on the lake* below looked much
mailer than skitE). 1 will not attempt
further description, but tell any frienda
raining to Europe bjr no means to miaa
Lucerne.
The old churches and ancient bridgea
here arc very curious. Thus far my trip
ha* been a very fine one, and I just hit it
in unkirg direct for Italy first. We are
among our German friends now, and they
ie*tn more natural to us than the French

accustomed to theContinent,and get along

How Wool In HaiidlcU at the
Wool lk oil HP.
stv ib.m lllr Wo 1 drover's Bulletin.
Any one dfsiri g to ship wool to this
hou<e, and understanding the aims and
object*, writes for sacks, which are sent
out. he paying fricght. The sacks are
marked rc.idy for shipping. The consignor
put* n mark on the *acks when he
shipi?his own name or initials, for instance?so
that we can tell hu nackl.
When the wool is received we pay the
freight ami draysge, which is charged up
to tlie consignor. It is weighed and mar*
ked with our number, and the consignor
i? receipted for the gro?4 weight. We
place Insurance upon the wool, grade it,
give each consignor credit on onr books
for his different grade# in pounds. The
grade or each roan is thrown into the pile
where it belong. A man mar have five
or even ten different gradw ami hi* wool
will go into att many different pilei, unle-s
lie desires his wool kept separate after
the grading.
\Vh?ii the wool is grafted it is understood
to I* ready for Hale, in a bhapo that
manufacturers wish it when they desire
to buy. The object of grading id to obtain
for the wool grower just what hi*
woolia worth.

The object in charging a commission in
to make the huusu^elf-ifupporting. And
in lining hucine'rn for consignors everything
in made an safe aa any businesa can
be. Th ore who have the responnibility
of managing the house are placed under
heavy bonds, properly secured. Wool in
kept insilred, and besides a watchman is
kept in the building night and day.
We think that we nre now in a situation
to make good sales for consignors,
when the market ix in a condition to do
so. The wool is in nice shaj>e, and as far
as consignors, manufacturer*', dealers and
agents have examined the stock on hand
and mode of handing, they have express
fd thenuelverf as highly pleawed, eB|>ecially
the lirnt named.
For all our work and expenee one cent
and a half per |tound h charged. If the
wool irf kept wparate after grading, a
half-cent more in charged.
We niui to give natiefiiction an far as it
iti poHnblo to do mo. In fact, when we arc
not aide to do ho the buainepn will be
stopped. In order to be able to give entire
satisfaction we desire correspondents
to write ua for explanation* and instruction#,
giving u? whatever advice and
counsel they may deem proper. In
fliort, the aim ia to handle wool in a more
Hati.-factory manner than ban been done,
and if flatiefacLion U not given the end ia
not accomplished.

In the Wheeling morning papers re-1
cptiuy wo* published a statement showing
the manner in which bank stock in thai
city in taxed. Fire bunks, with a paid
in ciiflh capital of ?850,000 and something
overSlOO.OOO of surplus, return but$107,000
75, The two Urgent of these bank*,
with cadi capital of $450,000, return for
taxation but $25,842 08. Now any one
who will read th*n statement and will take
the tronl 'eto compare theco returns with
those of our Helwpnt county bank* muKt
conclude that Wheelingbank<t do not pay
far in excess of a fair proportion. Let
us compare. Three bank*-?the Exchange,
the Ohio Valley, and the
Commercial with capital of $550,000? return
$:U,041 Go. Now the rate on each
one hundred dollar* in Wheeling does
not much exceed $2; let us say for safety
?2:10. These three banks, with $500,000
of capital, will then pay to State, county
and city $727 74. On the other hand live
bank* in Belmont county, with cash cap
ital of $oU0,000, return $540,000, and pay
State, county and town in excess of $10,778,
according to the County Treasurer's
twifikfi. That in lli? anna
