well below t e actual capacity or
mills and factories, as this has In
creased during the last nine year.
The most important '.tern of the coun
try's wealth ha8 always been th"
crops and these have turned out well
up to the average, while the total
value Is some $2. 000. 000. 000 greater
than It was In 1921.
FARMERS' BtTl OfQ POWER
It Is true that so large a part of
the grain and cotton crops was mar
keted early in the harvest season that
the farmers by no means got th' ad
vantage of the large advance which
occurred between the middle of Sep
tember and the close of December. It
is also true that high freight rates j
havo made tho discrepancy unusually
great betweon prices on the farms and
those at the distributive centers upon
which compilations of total values
Nevertheless the rise of tho la.it
three months in the commodity mar j
kets has Improved Immensely the buy
Ing power of the agricultural districts
so this will be turned to the good of
the business community during the
coming year. Granting movsovOT a
continuance of present price levels,
the complaint so often heard in tho
Spring and summer that the farmers1
as a class are worse off than any
other laboring body will be In a fair
way to disappear.
OPERATE AT PROF! r
It was not until the third and fourtn
quarters of the year that the steel,
copper, zinc and other of the metal
producers began to operate in ine
black. Increase, l output was neutral- ,
lzed by Inability tp get down labor
costs and by the serious effect of the
coal and railway shopmens' striken.
The steel mills aro now employed i
at between 75 and SO per cent of ca- 1
paclty. but since that always happens
In a period of Industrial recuperation,
prices do not progress toward normal
with the same rapidity as production.
Consequently the less favored steel
producers arc forced to do business a,
a margin of profit which brings tht?m
In relatively little money.
How largely this position will be j
altered by the mergers of independent
steel companies which have been put
through during the year, remains to
be seen. In the meantime the pre
diction made 12 months ago that 1922
would be Bj season of gradually Im
proving business conditions conducted
however, under active competition I
and for a comparative return, h i

The ri.ie In the Investment mark-' I

degree by the tremendous output of
