Experts Not Sure Whether It Is Sea sonal or Permanent. WASHINGTON, Aug. 30. A general revival of business and industry is un der way in the United States, according to Secretary of the Treasury Mellon and to reports being received by the federal, reserve board and other agen cies. Reserve board reports indicate that the general revival in buying and com mirciul activity, generally, is greater tuati at any period since the depression of last September began. Administration officials, however, are not prepared to commit themselves fully to the prophecy of a general busi ness boom. Mr. Mellon offers the sug gestion that the renewed activity may be seasonal, or it may be the forerunner of the general boom that is expected with the return to normalcy. It is pointed out that business always picks up in the early fall, after a period of midsummer dullness, but usually this sVnsonal actiyity does not particularly manifest itself until September, People in olden times wore the emerald in tiie belief that it prevented giddiness and strengthened the memory-, I LOHATTmS LEVER hs For?
