The excess of $2,000,000,000 on the Import side is accounted for. 1n part, by the fact that many importing na tions include in their import values the costs of inland freight. Insurance • and other charges and, in some degree, to the (loser scrutiny of import values, which frequently are the basis of customs reve nue. Obviously, the figures have no ref ert.nee to purchases by travelers and In \ isible trade settlements, usually omitted from statements of commerce, but neces sarily constituting in an important fac tor in the balance sheet of nations. "The aggregate imports of the 75 prin cipal countries and colonies of tire world in 1912-13, were valued at $20,845,000,000 or $2,147,000,000 more than their exports. In this vast theatre of International trade the United States plays an important role, having bought 10 per cent of all the goods which the leading nations ex ported and having sold 14l* per cent of the merchandise which they purchased in the markets of the world. "The United Kingdom had a foreign trade of $6,830,000,000 Imports being $652, 000.000 in excess of all exports, domestic and foreign. Germany in 1912 had a trade of $5,069,000,000 imports being $449,000,000 in excess of all exports. The United States in the calendar year 1913 had a foreign trade of $4,277,000,000 exports exceeding im ports by $691,000,000. Canada’s imports were nearly double the value of her ex ports and France showed an excess of imports of $293,000,000. ‘‘Considering the commerce of the Uni ted States from 1790 to 1913 it is noted that the aggregate excess of exports over imports of merchandise in the 124 years | in question was $8,312,000,000 and the ag gregate excess of exports of gold and silver over imports thereof. $1,609,000,000. 'In the 85 years prior to 1875 imports usu ally exceeded exports of merchandise. Tn the 40 years since 1874 exports have al most invariably been larger than im port a. Tn the movements of gold and silver the balance of trade shifts more frequently from one to the other side of the ledger, and the last decade im ports of specie have about equaled ex ports." Bessemer News Bessemer, July 10.—(Special.)—Dick Elliott, who was cut in the abdomen and stabbed in the bjuk at ‘Brighton Saturday afternoon as a result of a quarrel In regard to a dog, died to day at 12:50 o clock at ihe Elizabeth Duncan Memorial hospital from the In juries received.

A morning call from a neighbor or a dear friend is often fraught with anguish. Now Why rhould this be the case?
