Yon could go either 'forward or backward—back lo aneienl Koine or forward lo Ihu millennium, whichever you chose. .If wo could tfel hold of such a machine, and spin back Ihrout'h a few trenerations, wo might discover that our difficulties today are only reprints of difficulties which assailed other men in limes past. A writer in the "Uusiness Conditions Weekly," of New York, recently set out lo collect a few of the doleful out-cries "which former depressions have drawn from discouraged men. » * * As far buck as the lime of St. Augustine, '1700 years ajjo, ho finds a writer complaining thai iigriculUire WHS decaying, purchasing power was dwindling, [axes were soaring, ami commerce was collapsing; the conclusion drawn, of course, was that the world was tfoii'ijf to .the dogs for good. He finds a distinguished French physician in 18^2 voicing similar complaints, lamenting the turmoil and confusion of the times—he had seen a post chaise rattling along at live miles mi hour, and he said that "IJiis madness of speed is wearing out men"—and he felt that his newly-horn son faced a life) which could bring him neither prosperity nor happiness. He finds an American editor in 1857 describing the "universal 'commercial prostration and panic" about him, and remarking that "it is a gloomy moment in history . . . never has the luluro seemed, so incalculable." •» « » In 188G a U. S. official speaks of the depression, doubts that any revival can come up lo lite level of Ihu preceding 50 years, and concludes plaintively that "Ihe day of large profits is probably pusl." It is really worth our while to mull over the dismal Jeremiads from the pasl. To be sure, it doesn't make our presenl problems any less difficult; OUT OUK (AMD COURIER NEWS but it may help us to sec that H troubled time such is the present is never quite i/& di^k and hopelcKs gs the people who are living through it often suppose.

Down to Business Tiie ambitious production program announced for next year by Homy Kord seems to foreshadow a pretty healthy revival in (hft important automobile imUistry generally. H alsoi looks like the actual beginning of the long-awaited '•jpidt-w.) in 'Uic capital goods industries. I ( 'or this program carries with it heavy expenditures on capital goods. Ford will pay: freight bills of $74,000,000, for instance; he will spend $53,000,000 on steel in tlm open market; hu will put ?100,000,000 into the "production of bodies, and §22,500,000 into the rubber'industry. •[ Now it is pretty certain lhat Kord is not going to go it alone on u program of this kind. If he spends at this rate, other aulo companies will do likewise. The result will be an extremely helpful .stimulation of some of the great, basic industries without- whose recovery we cannot regain n real prosperity.
