those for the corresponding period of
1914. This surplus was 11,0611,438, nn
Increase of tC20,550, which is equivalent
to nn annual rate of 29. S3 per cent, on
tho common stock, an Increase of 17.36

on the earnings for the corresponding
six months of the previous year. Gross
lecelpts were 14,906,350, an Injreatsf ot
Thtse results, says the report, are not
representative of the showing that' Ii
expected for the year. The report says:
We estimate that It orders In hand are
satisfactorily executed and there is no
substantial change, either for better or
for worse. In our blasting explosives
business, the earnings for the full year
should be between 50 and 55 per cent,
on the common stock outstanding. It
Is not possible now to attempt to esti

materially better than 1910."
