BUSINESS BOOM TO FOLLOW in END New York, Nov. 9. End of the war will bring tremendous opportunities for expansion and further prosperit to American business. Foreign markets the world over wil: be waiting for goods which only America can supply. Such is the belief of Richard Spll lane, editor . of Commerce . and Fi nance, who is one of the country's greatest authorities on general busi ness conditions here and abroad. Spillane is so strong an expert that his v.'ews carry great weight with the largest manufacturers and most" pow--erful financiers of America. "When the time arrives for us to help in rehabilitating the devastated lands of Europe," ' Spillane declares. "America's opportunity will be here. "The shelves of the world are bare. Belgium and Northern France are stripped clean. Everything of bronze, copr-fr, iron, steel, tin, has gone. "The Germans have taken door knobs and letter box fixtures. Every metal utensil has been taken. Hinges off the doors are gone. "There is enough hardware business in Belgium to keep the factories of New Eng-land busy Indefinitely.

There is reason to be lieve, according to a Berne dispatch to Temps vthat the premier of Bavaria has sent an urgent note to the German government stating that if an armis tice is not concluded without delay, he will be obliged to officially order Bavarian troops to return from . the front. This action would be taken, it is added, owing the fact that Ba varia is menaced , on the , southern frontier and the internal situation Bavaria is unsatisfactory. in RIDICULES THIRD SEX AS OUTCOME OF WAR (N. E. A. Special.) London, Nov. 9. G. H. Roberts, the British minister of labor, thinks all talk of a "third sex" and a "siwar" growing out of women's part in the war is pure rot. He said so in a speech the other night, contending that "women will always be swayed by love and home." The war has brought about a million and ahalf additional womtn into employment in Britain. About, a third of the British munition workers are women. . FLOWERS BLOOM ON GORY BATTLEFIELDS (N. E. A. Special.) Paris, Nov. 9.

Scientists lay this to the nitrates in the high ewered shells, the explo sions of the shells completely change the nature of the surrounding soil, pulverize it and thereby enable plant life to thrive In the new soil. Con demned explosives will have a good market among the farmers after the war for their fertilizing values. NEW ORLEANS STILL UNDER EPIDEMIC BANS New Orleans, Nov. 8.
