THE REAL REASON'
There comes a time, we fear when
good business is not so good as it
During the past fiscal year we sent
to vthcr countries four billion dol-
lars wbrth of goods more than we
r«ci ived friftm abroad. f
111st i- our balance of trade, and
it is caled good business.
Hut i- it:
VVhile we were sending tliose enor-
mous stock * abroad a scarcity was
being created iu this country.
So long as an article is plentiful it
can generally be purchased for a
reasonable amount, but the moment
it begins to become scarce, UI>
GOES THE PRICE.
That is what happened.
Not enough foodstuffs and other
articles were left in our own country
for our own use and we are paying
for it today with the wildest and
most assinine era of profiteering the
world has ever known.
And the exporting "interests" have
the monumental nerve to tell us it
is caused by underproduction.
A pleasing reception was given on
Saturday afternoon. Dec. 27th, by
Prof, and Mrs. ( \V. Shannon, as-
sisted by Mrs. I*rank Personetto in
honor of the Misses Mary and
Martha Ramsey, who are here from
Guthrie visiting friends. Games and
music and refreshments were the
order of the afternoon, and the two
young ladies were given a warm
welcome. I hose present were Mis.se*.
Clarice Hadsell. Marguerate Nor-
wood, Gwendolyn Belknap, Puth
Snyder, Josephine Paxton, Mildred
Reutepohler, Dorothy May Rente

sonctte and Ruth Shannon.
