The r |"rit of the people has been

to declare a political trnce during
the drive for the third Liberty;

Daring this conference Mr George
H. Dunscomb, or the Federal Reserve j
Bank of Chicago, remarked:
"This meeting is one which will be
* memorable in the history of the country,

attitude, -which is Keneral, will i
contribute immensely to ine many fac-j
tors that will lessen the strain of the ]
present campaign. Another import-{
ant element is the strong position of j
our banks, -which, of course, reflects j
the sound financial condition of the i
Our Great Financial Strength.
That the "United Slate:: is now the ;
dominant bank.ng power of the world
was shown in the annual report of the
Comptroller o':<C ;rrencv. presented tc
Congress on January 30. The Comptroller
es'.'mated the banking power of
the corn-try at $37,529,000,000. an increase
of more than $14,000,000,000
since 1912. In 1S90 the. banking resources
of the world were computed
as being only Sl",:;5fy)CO,O0O. Thus .
the Increase in the United S'ates during
the last five years nearly equaled
the world's combined banking power
2S years ago. And British financiers
have freely conceded that in the Federal
Reserve System we have the j
strongest and largest banking system [
in the world.
The sound states of tec bank? Is the j
best possible evidence of tne country's !
unparalleled prosperity, -vhich is further
accentuated by the fact that the
general stock of money in the Uflitea
States on March 1, according to estimates
made by the Treasury department.
totaled $6.351.54S.056, as compared
with $5,146.17S,093 a year ago.
Money in circulation on March 1
amounted to $5,092,530,6S2, as qgainst
$4.583,695,S70 a year ago "hat date.
The per capit-l circulation at the
beginning of Mar A was placed at
$48.37. On March 1. 1917, it was
$44.28. Just before the outbreak of
the European war. r,am?ly. July 1.

was $187,739,071,090. That we
havo been creating and storing up
great riches since then is well known.
Today our national wealth is estimat- J
ed to be between $223,000,000,000 and i
$250,000,000,000. Our per capita wealth
in 1912 was $1,963, now the average is
considerably in excess of $2,000 for
each individual.
The year 1917 was one of marvelous
expansion industrially and commer- !
cially for the United States. Our ex-;
ports aggregated more tnan $6,000,- j
000.000 and our imports were valued
at $3,000,000,000. The crop yield of all
cereals excepting wheat exceeded all
previous harvests, and was worth $21,000.000,000.

Address on German
Atrocities. j \
Starting with a contribution of *650 . ^
for Liberty bonds last night at the ' t
close or a patriotic meeting. Bingamon >
expects to raise at least $2,o00 before ^
the campaign is closed . There are'
several rich farmers in the vicinity 1S
who have expressed themselves n3
willing to invest in bonds and if this :
is accomplished the amount shoul'! \
soar tvell into the thousands. With
the school house willed at BIr.gamon
last night a spirited gathering -was j ^
held. i S
W. J. Wiegel, general manager of; 5
The Fairmont Printing company, de- i ~
iivered a patriotic address in which j f
lie flayed the cruel tao/;s used by the 1 5
Hun. Ia this connection he told of *
some of the horrible reports which the f4
United States minister to Belgium ?
has reported. On one occasion a band V
of German, soldiers called at a home X
in Belgium and asked the women: J
"Where are the men?" When they <!
were summoned they stood them up jj

continued the speaker. Another scene *;
which he mentioned was one in which
a Gennart soldier thrust a bayonet
through a baby and a moment later
killed the mother. "This is not wrr.
this is 3imply brutality." he declared.

is Good for Them. 2^
All over the country folks are learn- -
ing. that after the' long hard winter's"
pull, lack:- of green food and
fresh air, they are usually run down,
have no appetite, are nervous and
la bad shape generally.
Spring to them is a season to be
dreaded, their thin, watery, poisoned
clogged blood and v.cak nerves robs
them of all ambition or desire to
work and takes the pleasure out of y
life. C
For such men and women doctors a
are recommending Hiosphatcd Iron
which goes to the very root of all f.
blood impurities and nervons trou- bles.
They claim it helps purify the ^
blood by making it over anew, while- y
the way it relieves tired, fagged out *
nerves is almost too good to be true. '<
The confidence that the American y
people and prominent doctors have
shown iu Phosphatcd Iron, while re-; it
markable, is not surprising, as it is. 51
one of those honest preparations that j tj
never disappoints. As a man said j S
in recommending to his neighbor. I
"it's results that couat. and you can '< y

strength, or appetite, weak nerves j S
and is all played out generally, can ; 5J
