Description: 

The "Western Union" telegraph office in Jefferson (226) also serves as a place where residents who want to speculate on the commodities market congregate. The novel suggests the price of cotton futures on the New York market is reported over the wire at intervals, and posted where the local speculators can track its fluctuations. Whenever Jason stops in the office he finds a number of other men there doing just that.
