Not a Dependable Prosperity.
Much has been said in the pub-
lic press snd elsewhere during
the recent months concerning
the prosperity which is said to
be overwhelming the railroads
As well aa certain other indus-
trial enterpriaes—and lest the
public fly to couclusionsnot war-
ranted by tlie facts, it is well to
inquire into the causes of this
alleged transformation in the
business world. That certain
railroads have recently experienc-
ed large increases in their rev-
enues no well informed man will
attempt to deny—and yet a cur-
sory analysis will show in prac-
tically every instance that
increases are due to the enormous
movement in foreign war muni-
tions and hence the lion's share
of them are confined to the gre/ t
steel districts of the East where
orders for hundr-H* of million*
of dollars worth of war supplies
have been concrntrated during
the last rear ami a half.
Again, certain of the great
Western lines liaveshu-.n marked
increases due in large part t 3 the
fact that the Panama Cana was
out of commission during the
greater part ol the past winter
and hence these roadf have car-
ried an enormous amount of ton-
nage which would other wise have
taken the sea route. In other
words* this so-called prosperity
of the rsilr is due. not to a
wholesome and dependable
change in the domestic business
Mtuatior L>ut to abnormal con-
ditions produced by the great
European tragedy—and once the
cannon cease roaring and the
soldiers return to their fieldsand
it means we here in the U..ited
States are certain to be brought
face to face with one of the most
serious economic situations in
our history and one which it will
require the beat thought in the
nation to meet and cope with.
In the twinkling of an ere the
boom in war munitions will dis-
sppear and we will once more be
brought back to earth. With
billions of dollars of war debt
encumbering every great Euro-
pean nation it meana that, in
self-defense, their future com-
mercial policy will be to buy as
! lit ttle as possible upon the one
hand and to sell as much as
possible upon the other— for only
in this wi) can they hope to re-
coup their wasted fortunes The
first tesult will be * tremtr-dous
falling off in American exports—
■and here in the great centra!
West this means a heavy Mow to
i the farmers wheat, pork and beef
! for the new Europe that is to be
has mortgaged its buying power
for a long time to come and will
' have to si? down toa more frugal
1 dinner table then in many a long
tear. On the other band, it means
that the American manufacture
w:ll have to fight as never before
I for every available dollat's wottb
I of world trade—fo: even as
economy will be the watch word
at home' so, "get the business"
will be the European slogan in
■ever) great mart and market up-

Nothing To Say
That fool Mack, editor of the "Gimlet," came in and
got an ad out of us and consequently we're lust about
sold out. We still have a few Odds and Ends left,
amounting to about $1500 worth, which we will con-
tinue to sell at the same old price. After these are
gone if the wholesale houses cannot supply us with
goods fast enough we will sell the fixtures and turn
the key over to the landlord. If you need any of our
Odds and Ends at those same money* saving prices,
come in and see us. It will do you good and mebbe-
so us too. New shipment of Overalls just arrived.
