the established supremacy of American goods, our trade with foreign coun
tries is not growing as it should. Reports of the United States government
show that our imports are increasing, as they naturally would, with a growing
population as we certainly have, but the reportsTexports to foreign countries
during the year just closed are far from satisfactory. In only a very few instances
do the reports show an increase in exportations to foreign countries, while in many
instances they show a considerable falling off from the figures of the year pre
vious. Increased exportations are shown only with Argentina, Canada, Cuba, France
and Mexico, while decreases are shown with Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China,
Germany, British India, Italy, Japan, Holland, Russia and Great Britain.
The cause of the falling off can, in a large measure, be attributed to the
failure of Americans to properly advertise and push their products. Wherever
American goods have been introduced, they have always taken their stand at the
head of the procession, above all others, but there is a lack of cooperative adver
tising in this country; a lack of the proper spirit in pushing American goods
abroad. The following official figures from the state department are mute evi
dence of this failure:

in Marfa recently, having returned from
a several months' prospecting tour of
Presidio and El Paso counties. He
stated that the completion of the Kan

would open a fine mineral district, and

mining men. It lies some distance west
of Marfa. and the -Rio Grande cuts
through the district-
The nearest approach to it at pres

is some places as rough as any in the
Sierra Madre of Mexico, owing to its
leading over the precipitous escarpments
known as the rim rock, which pitches
abruptly down 1500 feet to the narrow
basin of the ,Rio .Grande. This trail
from Marfa is about 60 miles long and
crosses the Capote mountains..

the wrecker is busy, he is no despoller

that high point of development where

the skies with stately business and of

Its collections soon will be so com

The division of geology affords a
stirring illustration of this. Here is
gathered the world's best collection of
economic geology specimens. In the 30
years that Dr. Merrill has been con

tho whole world for materials, and
there are now more than 500,000 sepa

hundreds of wide, shallow drawers, con

of the best in the world, the largest
being at Vienna. While for show pur
