In tlie New York Sun's review of general prices in
August, 1914, and at the present time, it is shown that
there has been a distinct advance in the price of metals,
dyes, textiles, breadstuiïs, hides and leather, oil, chem
icals and drugs, paper, building materials and practically
' all foodstuffs. But the metal prices afford the most in
teresting study of the effect of the war upon American in
dustries. For thirteen years prior to the first war shock
felt in America, the United States Steel Corporation held
the price of steel rails at $28 a ton. The independents re
tained the same price, believing that they could survive
the lean years and make the most of the fat years along
with tin* trust. But the war brought into play a new ele
ment. With their increased freight business, the railroads
also felt able to use better rails. The result was an ad
vance of $5 a ton in the price of rails.
But lest it be inferred that the railroads are making
more monej* than is good for tliem, they have come for
ward with a table compiled from market quotations in
August, 1914, and recent market quotations. This shows
that thirty-five commodities used extensively by railroads
have advanced in price from 80 to 700 per cent. Malleable
castings and track spikes have advanced only 80 per cent,
while high speed tool steel, used extensively in railroad
shops, has advanced 700 per cent. The average is well
dver 100 per cent. Among other things listed is gasoline,
which lias advanced 181.5 per cent in price. All materials
purchased by railroads, classed in over 100 different
groups, show an average increase pf 42.3 per cent in price.
Taking each of the commodities and tracing its rise in
price back merely reveals a set of conditions affected more
or less by the war and all tending toward an advance.
While what is true of the metals is true to a certain ex
tent also of many other commodities, it is the rise in metal
prices which is causing some anxiety among manufactur
ers. It is easy to give the war as an excuse /for prices
which on their face seem exorbitant. But iti has taken
something like twenty months for the war to get ifi its
'work, and now that prices have soared and a. general feel
ing of prosperity has induced liberal buying and exten
sions of credit, the tendency to look toward possible peace
is manifesting itself among the more conservative. Ilhey
are beginning to ask themselves how readily the metal
market will adjust itself to a set #f conditions which can
not be explained with the single word, "war." They have
«-been tauglit that peace and prosperity go together, but a
war—tlie other fellow's war—has brought prosperity.
Wliat, then, will peace—the other fellow's peace—bring?

acute catarrh. When you hear a per

they are throwing catarrh germs Into

of your system is to pour a few drops
of the oil of Hyomel (pronounced Hlgh
