XKW YOllK, Nov 28. The makers

American business men who are
profiting by reason of the conflict In
Europe. The Illhle business In tlhi

cording to the publishers, the demand
for the American articles is unprece-
dentedly large, tt Is estimated that
the increase over the best previous
year Is aUiut 50 per cent. And the
i Illbles are not being purchased by
I missionaries or foreign auxiliaries of
J the Gideons, but by the great public
I abroad. Other nations are handicapped
In their ability to pubiisn, so tno
whole world is looking to this country
for Its supply.
At home, too, more people are read
ing or. at least buying nibles than
ever before. Tho Gldeont, the best
single customer, buy 60,000 a year to
distribute throughout the hotels of
the country. A member of a publlslt
, Ing firm estimated that the Dlble
business of the United States, includ
ing both eXDOrtatlons and the prod-
I net for home consumption, will total
' $2,200,000 this year.
To meet the demand the American
Illbles are being printed In many for
