United StaUs has suddenly bc- |tom« the world's largest exporter of manufactures. Prior to the war, .according to a. compilation by Tha Na- jtionul City Bank at New York, we held jthird place among the nations of the iworld as an exporter of manufactures, .being clearly outranked in this line |by Great Britain and Germany. With ··ifcc opening of the war, however, and jthe suspension o£ Germany's export tirade, we took rink next to Great (Britain as ui exporter of nranuiac- jtures, and with the enormous foreign (demand upon our factories we have .iow pissed Great liritaio in tac race land stand at the head of-the* list ot {Bations exporting manufactures. ; The grand total of manufactures Holering international trade i n . t h e jjear before the war, was about |8,- («00,000,000, ot which the United [States supplies about one-eighth, or lin round terms, Ji.000.000,000. · i About 90 per cent of the maufac- 'tures entering international trade in i!913 was -the product of countries jfiow it war. In certain of the coun- )tries, notably- Germany, .AnstrU-Hun- jfary, Belgium and Russia, exportation of manufactures .was suspeded, »nd in others, notahly France. Italy 'and Netherlands, the exportation was (greatly reduced. In still others, how- «rei\ notably the United States, Can- 'ada and Japan, the production and irxportation ot manufactures greatly ^increased following the war. In tha 'ease of the rieutrnl countries of Eu;rope there, was little change and the (official figures of Great Britair. show coirqtratively litUe change; though »resumably they do not inctude all «f the-war material sent out to that ·ebnntry by tie government, especial- jly that going to France. · The 'chief countries which show a [marked, increase in exportation of jmanufactures during the war are the Tlnited States, Canada and Japan. In the case of the United,States the in- 'ereaae has been especially in material Itor the battlefield and the ns« of the Rallied troops, but there has also been i* large increase in exports of our manufactures to the neutral world (Latin America, A*U, Oceania, Africa ·'tad certain countries of Europe. The ·total Tttlue of domestic manufactures (exported fron the United States Ic the fiscal year ending with 'June, 1914, ·all of ·which preceded tho war, aggregated $1,009,000,000,. including in .this iota finished manufactures aad'those 'Itor further use In manufacturing. .In i [the calendar year 1016 they totalled ·11,791,000,000, in 1916 ' |3,5J7,000,000 j and in 1917 $4,019,000.000, while Great Britain's total exports of domeitic 'manufactures in 1917 were but 12,- j 0,30,000,000, or about one-half those | ;of the United States in that year.; "With' the central' powers, Busia 'antl jBelgium DO' longer exporting inanu-. jractures, and Trance, Italy and jNetherlands greatly reducing their exports, it in estimated that the total .value of manufactures entering international trade" was but little more 'than $8,000,000,000, of which the United States supplied nearly or quite i one-half her tutal exports in thai year having befn as above :adicated, IJ4,029,000,000. Of this enormous exportation of manufactures of the United States in '1017, practically four times as much .as before-the war and twice as much ;a that ot Great Britain in 1917, more than one-fourth was destined for the 'battlefields of Europe. Explosives alone amounted to ?634,000,000, man- [nfactures of brcss, largely lor produc- ;tlon. of shells $240,000,000, chemicals jwhich were largely for the manufac- ;tner of explosives $193,000,000, Sre- ;ama $97,000,000. wire ?40,000,000 and ;zluc $40,000,000. The total ot iron land steel manufactures of 'nil kinds | iexported from the United. States in !l917Jwas ?lJ3f.,000,000, against |391,- iWQ',000 in 1915. iluci of tae increase I in'manufactures other than those for i.-war purpom -went to Latin America, 'Asia, Africa, Oceania and the neutral countries of Europe, to which the United States showed large gains in the exports of 1917 compared .with ·hose at the beginning of the war. lieub.

Mrs. Gareissea made the zblloiriiig ex- placatory statement: ' "Our sons belonged to a peace- loving ago. They had to leave loved ones, drop prospects of careers, and prepare for the roost infernal war the world has ever known. They have done this without complaint, with a determination to put forth tho best and highest within them. American mothers, no matter hcrw their hearts may bleed, must rise to the leading? of their sons. And if those idolized BOM fall, still they must rise, keep- in(f crer before" them their sons who have Rone up and up. In other words, they mast be -worthy of bc- injr mothers of the boys of today."

WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE IN TIME The man with the mail order watch dashes madly down tbe street, coat tails flying, perspiration pouring and his entire system "het" up -with the excitement within over the danger o'f missing his train with an important engagement awaiting him. lie arrives at the station long before his train is due and in comparing his mail order watch with the perfect timekeeper of the station master, finds that the station man's home purchased watch is of finer workmanship and better quality and was purchased for less money. . The next victim of the mail order jeweler suffers to the contrary by arriving a half hour late while the next station man, also a patron of the home jeweler, is ever happy with correct time, perfectly adjusted watch aad a faithful guardian in the jeweler from whom he made the purchase.
