When six. months ago I begun
using Thompson's Barosma, I bad
made up my mind to null out and
go out of business, but a frieud of
mine asked me if I bad taken Ba
rosma. I bad not, but was willing
to try most anything and began
using it as directed. I wa very
pale and weak, I continued using
it as directed and today I weigh 55
pounds more than when I com
menced using liiirosma. I was a
skeleton compared with wbat I am
now and shall remain in business.
When I would get up in the morn

and not rested, felt like going back
to bed again.

While Manufacturing Establishments
In the United States Are Increasing
Their Payrolls, Distress Among the
Unemployed Preva.Ha Throughout
Great Britain and the European Con
tinent. Special Correspondence.
New York, Oct. 13.
That the recent financial panic from
which the United States Is now re
covering was not the result of local
conditions is Indicated by the fact
that a severe business and industrial
depression for months has prevailed
throughout the world.
The United Slates has suffered less
than any other country.
In fact, the situation In this country
s not to be convpared to that abroad.
Official reports recently received by
the department of commerce and labor
furnish nn accurate index to the busi
ness conditions of foreign countries.
These rtpor's show that the Imports
Into the United Kingdom for home
consumption and the exports of do
mestic manufacture have declined
greatly. The situation there grows
In'August the decline In exports was
8.7 per cent. The decline in re
exports, that Is goods imported from
other countries for sale to foreign
purchasers, was $i!7,532.420 for eight
months this year, or over 20 per cent.
The falling off in net Imports was
$137,079,572 for the same time. The
decline in exports of domestic manu
facture In that country was $146,000,
000. or 10.6 per cent, in eight months,
about 2 per cent greater than the de
cline in the United States in the same
Many Unemployed Abroad.
Pauperism has increased enormous
ly in the United Kingdom this year,
and the number of persons receiving
indoor relief is the greatest since the
records began In 18H8.
A census of the unemployed, taken
by the newspapers, shows an extra
ordinary number over 22.000 In Glas
gow alone. The Ixindon Times says
that the outlook is "the worst that the
younger men have faced," adding:
The dominant fact Is that there Is
no life In shipbuilding, and no pros
pect of any revival. The railway shops
have cut down their staffs; aO per
cent of the masons are out of work,
and 25 per cent of the plumbers."
Many Seek Charity.
A Blue Book of the British govern
ment shows that nearly l.ooo.ooo per
sons were receiving relief on Jan. 1,
which number has greatly increased
since that time. In London alone 14!),
000 persons were securing relief a
great number over the previous year.
Wages have declined greatly.
The London Financial Times, a high
authority, of Sept. 19. says:
"For the greater part of the year
we have been passing through a very
acute phase of commercial depression,
and we have seen both imports and ex
ports decline at a rate that has been
anything but consoling. A review of
the business of the principal foreign
countries and colonies shows that
practically everywhere business is In
a very lethargic state. The board of
trade returns of the commerce of for
eign countries furnishes the necessary
figures showing the condition of busi
ness In those countries.
"The imports for home consumption
of Belgium for seven months show a
decline of nearly $25,000,000. Thosa
of Canada show a decline of 23 per
cent, or nearly $40,000,000; France,
$25,000,000; Germany, $45,000,000, and
so on with other countries. The domes
tic exports from those nations also
show large declines. The greatest Is
that of Egypt, which for the seven
months shows a decline of over 19 per
cent, or nearly $13,000,000. France
shows a decline of nearly $35,000,000,
or over 6 per cent. Germany's decline
In exports Is less, but reached a total
of about $10,000,000. Japan shows a
decline of 12 per cent, or $12,000,000
and Switzerland a decline of 10 per
cent, or over $10,000,000, and bo on
with other countries.
"The decline In the domestic ex.
ports of the United States Is very
much less than those from the United
Kingdom, and the relative decline was
very much less than that of Switzer
land, Japan, Egypt, British South
Africa, and some other countries. The
average decline shown in Imports of
all the countries was over 12 per cent,
and In some exports over 8 per cent
The later returns show even worse
figures. Generally speaking, therefore
we' have abundant proof of the wide
spread nature of the present depres
Bion In trade, and we need not alarm
outselves that we are experiencing
any special chastisement in the hands
"The Thunderer's". Tale of Distress.
The London Times in a recent issue,
speaking about the condition of affairs
In Scotland, says:
"The present generation does not
recall such slackness in all industries,
and, of course, in commerce which
depends upon the activity of work
shops and factories.
"The outlook for the winter Is the
worst that the younger men have yet
faced. One shipbuilding yard has not a
vessel on the docks, and another large
one Is employing only a third of its
full complement of workmen. The
dominant fact Is that there Is no life
In shipbuilding, no prospect of any
revival, no orders in tljll of any con
siderable magnitude. Therefore it is
feared that the winter will lis n very
hard one-. Cautious es Jinnies put the
total number of men, including labor
ers, out of work In Glasgow at from
20,000 to 30,000. Yarrow's is the only
shipbuilding yard that Is fullly em
ployed. The largest forge has reduced
Its staff from 4000 to 2500. The rail
way shops have cut down their staffs
on account of economies. Fifty per
cent of the masons are out of work
and 25 per cent of the plumbers.
"In the textile trade most of the fac
tories are on short time or keeping
down their output, so that women's
wages are In fact reduced from 18
shillings ($4.37) a week to 10 shil
lings ($2.43). Half of the 4000 dockers
are unemployed. The provident so
cieties toll rather doleful tales. Life
policies are lapsing all around, In
short, work Is scare and threatens to
become scarcer. Following the exam
ple set by the Glasgow Herald, the lord
provost has opened a distress fund,
and liberal response In being made by
The New York Journal of Com
merce, in Its Issue for Sept. 23. re
viewing American and British foreign
Home Conditions Not So Bad.
"The falling 6ff in American exports
In August amounted to" only 13.2 per
cent, while on the British side there
was a decrease of 18.7 per cent Our
own export figures for the eight
months as compared with the eight
months ending with August, 1907, show
a decrease of less than 9 per cent. The
British figures for the corresponding
period show a decline of 10.5 per
From this it will seem that the sit
uation Is much worse In the United
Kingdom and In some other countries
than It is In the United States. The
British board of trade returns for
August show the largest aggregate de
crease In trade for any month of the
year. The Imports fell over $30,000,000
in that month, and the exports about
$37,000,000. This enormous decline in
trade, the Iondon Times Bays, "is of
much Importance to the working
classes owing to the enormous number
of unemployed." A dispatch says:
"With the trade declining in the
alarming manner shown by the above
figures, the outlook for the workers
during the coming winter is very
gloomy. The most serious feature In
the point of view of the workingman
Is the falling off of exports of manu
The situation in Germany is much
the same, al' hough not quite so bad as
in the United Kingdom. The Canadian
government, owing to the trade condi
tions, has adopted regulations to pre
vent Immigrants from coming to that
country unless well supplied with
funds. At the recent session of th
Canadian Manufacturers' association
In Winniper. the parliamentary com
mittee reported as follows:
"The one outstanding feature of the
year has been the pinch of hard times
which all of us have suffered In n
greater or less degree. The London
labor bureau of the association has
been closed as a result of the indus
trial and financial depression."
