THE YEAR'S FOREIGN COX.VERPE The foreign commerce of the Unit ed States in tlie year uboul to end declai ;gB a (povernracnt report, will tbavr an Increase of over 200 million ' doHars when comi;nred with the Im mediately preceding year nnd u larger total than any preceding year of our commerce. Imports while failing below thoso of lUlO in ' the earlier months, have in the closing perioO of the year shown a marked Increase Indicating that the total for the year vUl differ but little from that of 1910, vblch made the highest record in the • history of the import trade. Exports - are larger than in any earlier y«art aiti manufactures exported also make _ their highest record, reaching approximately I billlcn dollars in the " calendar year 1911. The approximate - total for the year based on 10 months' record already compiled, are:' portB, over 2 billion dollars; inmorts, IV^ billion dollars, of whkh over one" ha}f entered free of duty. Considering the great groups of art- Icles, the noJeworthy changes ar?, in the case of -imports, a falluig oft in manufacturers' raw materials and in . _ finished manufactures; in the case of .exports, a general increase parilcipal- i ed In by all the important groups, foodstuffs, manufactures and manufacturers' materials. Comparing the 10 months' movements in the months named, imports of crude foodstulTs !n~ creased from 118 million in 1910 to 145 million in 1911; while foodstuffs, partly or wholly manufactured, de creased'from IC9 million to 131 rail Hon; manufacturers' raw materials Irom 4S2 million to 422 million; man- factures for further use in manufacturing increased slightly from 237 million to 242 million dollars, and Iln- Ished manufacturi -8 deorijascd from 310 million to 294 mllllcvi dollars. Kx ports, over 2 billion dollars; imports In the case of crude foodstuffs, from 70 million to 95 million dollars; food' stuffs, partly or wholly manufactured from 203.million to 247 million: manufacturers' raw materials, from 437 million to 4'Jl million; manufactures for further use in manufacturing, from 234 million to 267 million; and finished manufactures from 447 mi>lion to S31 million dollars. Cotton is still the leading article of export, its total for the year over ,1^ half billion dollars, exceeding the combined value of the two great classes next In rank, iron and steel ^manofactures. about 250 million, and meat and dairy products ICO million. The exports In cotton In 10 months aggregated 2.945 million pounds vsl- oed ist 371 million dollars,- the.larg- est value In the history of American commerce and but slightly less in quantity than the high record tdtai of 3.052 million pounds exported Ir 10 months in 1905. Iron and steel also made a new record in the 10 months of I9I1—20C mfillon dollars, against 164 million last year. Substantial Increases also occur in other leading articles, and the complete yea rwill probably record a total ex. port of over 12S million dollars" worth of breadstuffs, over 100 million of mineral oil nearly 100 million of copper,. 40 million of cotton manu- .^actures, 35 million of agricultural implements, about 3.'i million of cars and'tear rlages, and 25 million of chem icals and medicines. Considered by countries, large lii- crease |poccur in the exports to Cana^Sf 'tJmnany. Netherlands, Japan, th Usltad Kingdom, Australia and Bel- glum, and lesser increases In those to South America, Cuba. China and msr ny cither countries. While Imports as a whole decreased,' thero were increases in those,from Japan, India, Egypt and other countries of Africa. hsive beia.x and I hey received pre- (.-isaiy the same measure of Justice that was given to .other men. ^Labor" cannot' go before any legislature, and therefore the question' as to whether ft has had Justice, or could get Justlee^ere, cannot be brgued. ^Labor- Injg imen have gone before "old line part^ legislatures" and have been given what they demanded to a greater extent, wo venture to say. than any; other class of citizens. -The fundamental fallacy of men of the Wright .stripe is that they insist upon classifying American citizens They talk about "I^bor" as If thr word dt fined a class of Americans who wore set off from their fellows by^a hard and fast line which could jio ^r be crossed, either to break in or to,get out, and as If the men thuf classlllcd were entitled to. special J l^ts, privileges :ind immunities that Id hot apprrtain .to their fellow countrymen. They talk oa if the courts ami liie legislatures of the country were ,'ill leHgred togeilier in conspIrHc.v to r( h o^ oipress or otherwise Injure "I : I -.r." All of which, lis :it fir.^' remarked.

And it is recisfly those things which ,would happen if the men who listen to such lecturers" as this Mr. Wright should e so i-nhappy ua to believe what hey say.

If Ihiy have and will dig It up and print It they will confer a favor on everybody who la capable of enjoying the wittiest thing of that sort that was ever porpelrnted in Kansas. A good many men have tried to de- cribe the plains as they appeared by ipht and by tli.y, hut few have BUC- eedcd better than Barney Sheridan n this paragraph from a letter written on the way to Roswell .N.

Ur. Clyde J.

It is a reminder of the de- cripMon Kipling gives of the crew of e British ship "Victoria" standing the "Birkenhead" drill, as their hip went down: To take your chance in the thick of a rush with flring 'all about, nothin' so bad when you've cover to "and, and leave an' llkin, to shout; ui to stand on" be still to the Birk en'ead drill is a damn tough bullet to chew, they done it, the Jollies,— 'Er Majesty's Jollies,—soldier and sailor too!" Vp at Kiucaid for the mom.^nt they 'utve dro])p»d the question whether a 'Ird prefers a round perch to a square one, and in its place are discussing ways nnd means to raise the tiSQ it *ill cost to pay the fvoight on a cannon which the government has donated the town. The last report that came down this way was (hat the people were rapidly taking sidca as between Sam Irwin and Senator Curtis. That is to say, some think that Irwin ought to pay the frleght because he "sked Curtis to. get the cannon and some think that Curtis ought to pay It baeause he got the cannon. And in Ihe meantime the big gun Is out at San Francisco waiting. "Champ Clark will be nominated :y the DemoT :its, Taft wliybc nated by the Kepubllcana, LaFollctte vill be nominated by iho In3:irgents •nd will take away from Taft enough votes to elect Clark." is the way the -ituction was sized ip in this olficc. the other day by a man who has been . watching political signs and omens' for the .si .\ty years.

From the Chicago .News. A stitch at 9 may save two at 10. it's a bad sign to write your name on a friend's note. And occasionally a man is married for his first wife's money. What avman has doesn't count so nuch as what he does with it. Nearly ever married man thinks h" proposed to his wife—but did he? Some men are so skeptical that they even refuse to believe half they say. Even a woman with a grac-^fiil carriage nrefers to ride In her own automobile. It is better for a man to do a little kickine; than to deteriorate into a human football. Perhaps a man has more temptations than a woman because he knows Just where to look for them. And a wise bachelor always hikes for the tall timber when he hears n girl say that she intends to be an old maid. Many a good woman who wouldn't hink of using her religion as a cloak stays away from church because she can't afford a new cloak. REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR. From the New York Press. A man brags about his. cigar billa to evjeryborty but his wife. The rer.son a man can't get along with his family is he ought to. The more .-i woman a man he better it is for her not to try to prove it. There «-em8 tr> be mrch more mon- y in Rrlling gold mines than in work ine them. The most troub'f.'*'"^o thing to n airl about ha vine hii'f a dozen hcs: beaux is she feels It her duty to herself to have different photographs lakrn for each of them.

They hold that with proper attention to diet tieople should live 150 years. We don't know how true that I H. Rut we do knew that great numbers of elderly and sged people feel and look younger than they are because they build up with VInol, our delicious cod liver and Iron remedy without oil. Mrs. Michael Bloom, of I ^ewlBtown, Pa., 83 years of age. had to be wheeled around In p.n.'lnvalid's chair before she began taking Vinol. and after .n«- iag a few bottles was able to go out walking alone, and do most of her bonse.rork too. That shows how Vlnol strengthens feeble people. It shafpien* the appetite makes the blood rlehlnd causes it to circulate better. You feel the good effects of Vlnol very soon.
