Upturn in Business is Seen
The year 1921 has marked a turning point in
the long reaction against inflation in this coun
try, says a survey by a New York City bank.
"Moreover," the survey goes on, "for the most
part, industrial production does not yet fully
reflect the substantial improvement- that ha.3
been., effected, in. the fundamental business fac
tors, such as decline in interest rates, the liquida
tion of bank credit,; the reductions in accumu
lated stocks of commodities and the comparative
stabilization of prices at lower levels."
i It finds that the successful fruits of the arm3
conference, taken with other world factors, can
not fail to react favorably on trade, and says
that, while exports have fallen since last January
from a monthly total of $642,000,000 to around
$o20,000,000, detailed analyses show that lower
prices had a relatively greater effect in reducing
the total than did a decrease in the volume of
business. In some commodities, the volume in
creased ovfcr the preceding year.
."The most gratifying aspect of the year's in
dustrial events," the survey continues," "is the
upturn during the last few months in the general
volume of production in the country, which about
midsummer had reached its lowest point since
1914. Although some of the increase is clearly
due to seasonal influences, there has been, never
theless, since July, an upturn so pronounced that
it must represent'fundamental improvement."
The survey finds the upturn is most marked
in the textile industry and less so in the iron and
steel business. Steel, which was 66 per cent be
low normal in July, has advanced, to 46 below.
Textile production, which was 41 per cent below
normal last December, advanced until in Septem
ber it was 12 per cent above. Cotton consump
tion has increased each month since August.
"Production in many other line3 of manufac
turing," the survey adds, "has also shown , pro
nounced increase over the low points of the year.
Especially, is this true of manufacturers of paper,
lumber, tobacco, leather and foodstuffs. These
increases in volume of proportion represent not
merely seasonable advances, but more substan
tial gains, indicating thaft readjustment of indus
try, lower prices and costs, of operation are pro
ducing the desired results."
It Happens in the Best Regulated Families
"Woman's 't7ork in the Orient
The desire of woman for education and par
ticipation in public affairs is finding expression
in increasingly stronger terms in the Orient.
Girls of India, China and Japan are eager for the
advantages of an education and an adequate
preparation for life.
The extent of this demand, and the manner
in which it is being answered are apparent in
the organization of seven new colleges for women
within the last few years in the Far Eeast. Thes-J
new schools are to be found in India, China and
With the craving of the women of. the East
for better schooling has come their entrance into J
public affairs. In China, for instance, the stu
dents .took a direct part in the famine relief
work. Small groups of girl students entered the
famine stricken districts where they took care of
starving children and ministered to the relief of
So general is the demand for education that
the few colleges now existing are compelled to
turn away hundreds of applicants, some of whom
trvaeled for miles to begin their schooling.
The better education of the women of the
Orient will be one of the powerful agencies for
the improvement of general conditions among
the natives. Every educated girl that returns to
her native village will be the nucleus about which

If you cannot feel yourself growing from day to day, it Is time for
you to realize that you are standing still. ,
Quickened by this thought, many of us see our record as it actually
is and are thereby inspired to go beyond jt and make a growing affair
of it instead of something to be satisfied with.
I read a list of famous living men in a magazine the other day.
Not one was younger than 60. The oldest was nearly 90 Senator
Depew. And as I studied this list of names, I called to my mind that
every one of these men had always been very active every one a tire-'
Glory in a good record made. But having made one move on to
a better one!
Keep beating and surpassing your own record. Find in personal
advancement and development the secret of your desire to grow.
Never be content with any standard set for your reaching. Keep
bettering it by learning more and working harder. For standards
change as we near them even as a wonderful scene changes and
increases in beauty as we walk near to it.
v What is more thrilling than to test our possibilities to their limit
and learn, as we gain here and there, that there really are no limits
when sincere aspiration leads.
Just as soon as you make one good record you want to start for
'a bigger one. So that record-making will become a habit, and record
breaking a thrilling adventure!
Learn each day new things to do or to think about. .
Keep adding to the resources of your mind, giving it wider scope
Let no achievement die upon your hands. Rather, make each one
a breeder of achievements. And walk in daily confidence that you
are a creative beiug worthy of the time in which you live.
Build records that will stand!

.there was consternation among the
I older folk. The knickers themselves
were of the pale blue homespun va
I riety and were tastily set off by a
! short jacket, tam o' shanter, woolen
I stockings and low tan oxfords. Opin
j ion of the older ones present seemed
equally divided between admiration on
the part of the males and indignation
of the dowagers.
Christian worked on Harding's
newspaper while going to school in
Marlon. When he came back home
from military school at Chester, Pa.,
he got married, took a job in his fath
er's stone business and moved into
I the house next door to Hardings on Mt.
j Vernon avenue in Marion. Years lat
er Harding was elected to the United
States senate. He went to Washing
ton and soon sent for Christian to
come there as his secretary. Chris-
tain was at Harding's side in Chicago
when news of the nomination came.
He was with the candidate election
night. He stood a few feet from his
chief during the inaugural ceremony
last March. And then he wentinto

I mark the specialist in crime, as

isn't serving time he's dodging gum
shoe cops ; and he can never - reach
a clime where the avenger stops. He
makes a killing now and then, and
! swipes some sucker's hoard: but never
i may, like other men, the wholesome
I joys afford, and soon or later in the
!pen he has his bed and board. For
him there is no peace of mind, no rest
! at set of sun, and moral people and
refined he evermore must shun, and
if he hears a step behind, his impulse
is to run. His nerve forsakes him
when he's old, his day3 are day of
dread, the step that once was firm and
bold is like a rabbit's tread, and, shak
ing in the dark and cold, he wishes he
were dead. And if he'd use the clever
brain with which he is endowed, for
purposes of honest gain. In way by

'Tis strange that men of splendid gifts

because they well must know the end
of such a trail; the law will dog them
to and fro and in the end prevail; and
crime will bring them only woe, and
long years in a jail.
