NO BUSINESS DEPRESSION.
Those who talk of business depression bo
cause tariff schedules are going to be rovised
should Bcrutin;K3 the figures of the country's
foreign trade foi October. The mouth was
another recoid-breaker, imports going $l.r),
000,000 above tho previous high level and the
exports $20,000,000 above. Shipments abroad
of non-agricultural products were particularly
heavy, exceeding by some $27,000,000 the
shipments of the same class in December,
1910, the last record-breaking month. Acti
vity like this in the foreign trade indicates
that, uudei present conditions at least, the
couutry is not to be ruined by possibly a little
"ro foreign competition. Spiingfield Repub-

PROSPERITY EVERYWHERE-AND YET!
Among the important expressions callod
forth by Professor Wilson's announcement
that an extra session of Congress is to bo call
ed not later than April 15th, the following,
by Speaker Clark, is interesting:
In travoliug through half of the States of
the Union I have iuquired as to tho conditions
of business, and have found it brisk in every
lino every whoi e. Factories aro behind with
orders, and aro ruuniug overtime. For instance,
Saturday before tho olection, I was talking to
cylie of my constituents, who manages a great
manufacturing plant, and asked him how many
men ho was using, lie replied: "About twelve
thousand. We could uso one thousand more if
wo could get thesteoland othermaterials." That
is a samplo of other conditions. Increasing
piospoiity is ovidentovery whore.
And id is in the face of such exceptionally
prosperous conditions as these that an extra
session of Congress is called and with Champ
Clnr-Vs cordial approval! Why iuterfero with
ch conditions? Are they not as perfect as
ible? Can Tariff slashing improve them?

THE COAL TRUST IN THE EAST.
Thomas W. Lawson throws togothor those
incongruvial remarks concerning tho Coal
Twelve year's ago tho peoplo's coal cost
thorn, at tide water, 3. per ton; today the
cost is 5.50 per ton.
Heaped On New Federal
Newspaper Law More
Truth Than Humor
Today tho Coal Trust collects 150 million
dollars more tributo troin the American peo
ple than in 1900. "
Improvements in production have lowered
producing cost more than tho amount of in
crease in wages.
In 1903, for every ton of coal mined and
marketed, ono tou and a half was wasted, or
left in the ground as pillars; at the present
time, for every ton of coal mined, only a half
ton is wasted or left as pillars.
In 1907 3,000,000 tons of small coal, form
erly thrown away, was sold from the waste
banks, and 0,200,000 tons of tho same class,
formerly thrown away, wore mined and mar
keted, tho whole at'a net profit to tho Trust of
15 million dollars.
The recently much-heralded increase in
minors' wages amounted to only $0,4 10,000,
and, at tho time it was made, tho Trust in
creased prices 25 conts per ton, $15,000,000
additional profit, or $8,500,000 not, that is
$8,500,000 more than it would havo received
had it not increased wages.
Twelve years ago the the Coal Trust stock
(Reading) sold at $8.75 per share, or $12,
425,000. Since then tho Coal Trust has earn
od not $170,000,000, or as much each year as
its entire stock sold for boforo it perfected tho
Tiuet. Its stock sells at $87.50 per share to
day. Louisvillo Post.
The new Federal law making it
necessary for uewspapera to furnish
complete information about their busi
ness, is so preposterous, presumptu
ous and unworthy this government
that many criticisms havo been writ
ten upon the subject. One of the
most readihle wo've seen is the follow
ing from the Rochester, Iud., Re
publican and it is self-explanatory.

run campaign?, howl his fool head off
to elect tho ticket, and then swallow

fellow for Postmaster.
Q. How can the U. 8. Postal De
partment further accommodate pub
lishers? A. By obtaining more free adver
tising as the U. S. now dead heads its

marked "For Immediate Release,"
accompanied by a check on the Dank

arp card of thanks,) and add all pos

Q. Can you offer a suggestion for
a law to increase government elll
cioncy for the benefit of country pub
lishers? A. Oh, yea! In addition to hav

opes, for commercial trade, let the
government printing ollico do a gen
eral line of jab work, double the

Senators and others whose pay is
small, raise the rate of postage on
publishers and the department will
soon become more than self support
ing. Q. What would bo the best method
so. augment the effectiveness of tho

A. Borrow a 14-inch 45-CHliber
coast dofenso rille, charge it with lyd
dite, wad it with congressional records
und a missile of early-spring-pasture
Holstein apple-butter, aim the gun at
tho author of the bill and compel Bill
Bryan to pull the trigger.
Q. Is there any information not
herein demanded that you would like

of contempt for damphule enactments
and the well of liberality is sometimes

Gave Up Hope
"I suffered fivo years, with awful pains, due to woman
ly troubles," writes Mrs. M. D. McPherson, from Chad
bourn, N,. C. "They grew worse, till I would often faint
I could not walk at all, and I had an awful hurting in my
side ; also a headache and a backache.
I gave up and thought I would die, but my husband
urged me to try Cardui, so, I began, and the first boitle
helped me. By the time the third bottle was used, I could
do all my work. All the people around hero said I would
die, but Cardui relieved me."
CARDU I WomarfsTonic
For more than 50 years, Cardui has been relieving
woman's sufferings, and making weak women strong and
well. During this time, thousands of women have written,
like Mrs. McPherson, to tell of the really surprising results
they obtained by tho use of this purely vegetable, tonic
remedy for women.
Cardui strengthens, builds, restores, and relieves or pre
vents unnecessary pain and suffering from womanly troubles.
If you are a woman, begin taking Cardui, today.
