Gr. Dun & Co’s annual review of trade with having been one of the great factors in turning the year 1907 from its promise of new records in prosperity to the closing per iod of financial disturbance that cau ed many plans for feiture extensions of business to be either abandoned or postponed. ine restoration ot normal conditions, the review de clares, depends upon easier money and. a revival of con lid ence, both of which seem nearer today than at any time since October, when the stringency began. While failures were frequent during the last, quarter of the year, the review points out that if the comparison is carried back to previous periods there is much cause for con gratulations in the insolvency returns. The review says in part: “Although in many cases the size of crops in 1907 fell below some preceding years, high prices made the return to the farmer much larger than ever before. To some extent short crops in other countries accounted for the high prices, notably in the case of wheat, for which foreigners were willing to pay more than a dollar per bushel during the closing month. “Adding the value of cot ton, meats, dairy product poultry, eggs, and all other items raised by the agricul turist, the year’s total attains the phenomenal value of 67, 400.000. 000. “Cotton has ruled at a high position throughout the year, while the latest statistics of the crop indicate a yield of 12.000. 000 bales, or 10 per cent less than the high record established in the various year. The old crop year end ed on August 31, with the largest total ever harvested, and with exports exceeding all other years, except 1905, as to quality, while the high average export price, of 10.7 cents per pound this year raised the total value 670, 000,000 above the previous high-water-mark established two year's earlier, when the average price was about two cents per pound lower. Why We Have Panics. “Some lessons of value, therefore, are to be learned, and among them are these: The belief has been deeply cultivated that a money sys tem strougly resting on gold maKes panics impossible. It is a false notion. The belief has had wide acceptance that a high protective tariff pro tects from panics which come only under low tariffs. That is quite as false as the of her. The belief prevails to a greater or less that a particular poli tical party possesses the ex clusive power ot governing the country in freedom from financial disaster and indus trial 1 elapses. That is even more false than either of the other beliefs. Panics or fi nancial crises, are made pos tible only by the existence of the credit system, and the credit system exists under the gold standard as under any other money standard, and it is in operation whether tar iffs are high or Jew, or wheth 3r the Republican party is in power or not.’’—Springfield [Mass.) Republican. Rank Foolishness. “When attacked by a cough or sold, or wnen your throat is sore, t is rank foolishness to take any )ther medicine than Dr. King’s Slew Discovery,” says C. O. Eld ridge, of Empire, Ga. “I have lsed New Discovery seven years md I know it is the best remedy 3ii earth for coughs, colds, croup md all throat and lung troubles. My children are subject to croup, but New Discovery quickly cures jvery attack.” Known the world 3ver as the king of throat and ung remedies.

Put Your Money In a Bank. Freeland, Pa —Michael Mar rum, a hard-working miner of this town, hoarded his savings on his person while at work in the day time and under his pilmw at night. Thus $1,400 00 the savings of a lifetime, with which he intended to buy a little home, was stolen from under his pillow while he slept at an early hour this morn ing. We have all heard that a burnt child dreads the fire, also that doors have been locked after the horse was stolen. Bank accounts have been opened after most of the money was lost.

Brought Only !$27,393,760 into This Country and Took Away SIIGGQO GOO. New York, Jan, 7—More than §110,030,000, or almost enough to build the Panama caual, was taken out of the United States in 1907 by tie unprecedented outward rush of emigrants. To learn the approximate amount carried home by r* - turning foreigners in the last year the North German Floyd Steamship Company has made a careful computation, based on figures furnished by steamship agents, money changers and others in a po sition to be informed. & Ail the sources questioned agree that the average sum is about §200 per capita. Of course, some aliens have a great deal more, while others have less. On the basis ot the 550,045 emigrants who went home from this country last year, each having $2oo, the currency of the country was contracted to the extent of $llo,ooo,ooo. It is also to be noted that to get home foreigners were compelled to pay an aggregate of $15,ooo,~ ooo in railroad and steamship transportation and other charges. As an offset to the $llo, 000,000 taken out must be counted the actual money brought in by immigrants. The Commissioner-General of Immigration, aftercareful inquiry, estimates that each immigrant landing in the United States has $2o. On this basis the 1,364,488 who came in last year brought ap proximately $27,263,790. This can hardly be figured as a strict gain to the coun try. as much of it was origin ally furnished to the immi grant by some friend or rel ative who had earned it in the United States and who frequently prepays the steam ship fare as well.
