6 ST. HELENS MIST. FRIDAY. DECEMBER 6, 1918
HOW THE WAR
During a recent 10 month our ex
ports of manufactured articles de
creased $444,000,000, compared with
the same 10 months a year ago.
Our exports of foodstuffs and crude
materials increased during this time
but miscellaneous shipments wero
less. Although our exports declined,
our imports in crude materials grew,
increasing about $128,000,000. Our
imports of foddstuffs showed an In
crease of $74,000,000 and our Im
ports of manufactured articles in
creased nearly $100,000,000. This
indicates what the -war has been do
ing to our commerce.
KAISER IS VERY RICH
The kaiser not only has sacrificed
the people of Germany to his ambi
tion, but also is one of the greatest
war profiteers.. He has always been
one of the largest shareholders in
the Krupp gun works at Essen, and
since the war began is said to have
increased his holdings of stock $25,-
000,000 worth. The kaiser is one oi
the world's enormously wealthy meu.
He Is the greatest land owner lu
Prussia, and has an immense private
income with investments of more
than $10,000,000 In the United
States. His grandfather left him a
fortune of $12,000,000, obtained
through kingly graft. As an example
of what unrestrained privilege can
do to a nation. Germany ranks next
to Russit and Mexico, where the
people virtually have been under
WHEN YOUR HORSES
GET THE "FLU"
To guard against an unfavorable
termination or the development of
one of its numerous complications,
norses upon showing evidences of in
fluenza should be relieved immediate
ly from work. Most careful nursing
is also essential for horses affected
with influenza and, likewise, skilled
medical treatment, which can be best
assured by placing affected animals
under the care of a qualified veter
inarian. The spread of the Infection
should be prevented by segregating
the diseased animals and thorough
ly cleuning and disinfecting the con
taminated premises. Plenty of sun
light and good ventilation are also

Some industries have been able to get in

In many cases mighty plants have Sprung
up but at a prodigious cost
The packing industry was able to adapt
itself to unheard of demands more quickly,
perhaps, than any other industry. And this
was because the vast equipment of packing
plants, refrigerator cars, branch houses, etc.,
had been gradually developed to its present
state of efficiency, so that in the crucial hour
it became a mighty 'international system for

Not by making vast inroads into the capi

from year to year, a portion of the profits, to

ally no effect on the price oflmeat (amounting to only
a fraction of aocent per pound).
And yetsthe uwtiets of 'the business have been

have been abOe, yean, after year, to put part of the
profits back into the business to provide for its
These fractions of tiny profits have been repaid to

Swift & Company to (meet, undaunted, the sudden

Could any mother method of financing a vital
