The country's excess of mer chandise exports over imports amounted to $851,000,000 for the ten months ending with April. The month of May brought it above $900,000,000. The end of the fiscal year will see it in the neighborhood of $1,000,000,000. We have heard of the United States as a "billion-dollar country" iu poiut of Federal expenditure of public revenue. No one has ever before heard of the United States as a billion-dollar country in point of a trade balance with the outside world, which means to the nation an equivalent sum in reduction of foreign debt and accumulation of foreign credits, and in command over the world's exchanges and the world's gold supply. This is a horse of another color. There are fiuancial offsets to this extraordinary exhibit of increased financial power. The unusual ex port excess is partly due to imports reduced by the war, and reduced imports have cut down customs revenue and created a deficit which the wai taxes are evidently not to overcome in its entirety. But in the presence of so great an addi tion to the country's money and credit resources within a single year, it is a small item to overcome, Deficits growing out of boasted billion. dollar tax extravagances are one thing. They are another when growing out of billion-dollar sur pluses in the foreign trade. New York World. No. 666 will cure malaria or bill ions fever. It kills the germs. Lofty Colonnades of the Superb Court of the Four Seasons, Panama-Pacific International I i ft rsHilv THIS photograph faintly portrays the beauty of the arches that stand be tween the Court of the Four Seasons and the Western Venetian Court While it truly presents the attractiveness of the architecture, it cannot even hint at the beauty of color tones. , The pilasters shown in this photograph are of verd nntique bronze, the background of imitation Travertine is of ocher hue more than half the height of the arch, and the upper portion i3 of Pompeiian red, with touches of orange and copper green in the ornamentation. Inside the arches the ceilings are of cerulean blue, and bas-relief in whibo shows scenes typical of the seasons. The square wall surface at the left f the picture shows where one of nmny mural paintings will be placed. Looking through the arch, a part of the Court of the Four Seasons may be seen. Closer inspection shows a verse from Spenser and below It the sigus of the Zodiac. . The world Is to be given something new in the system of courts at ttve 1915 Exposition, and each one Is to be a revelation in modern construction. The Exposition will open at San Francisco on Feb. 20, 1915. PRINTING THE NEWS. We often hear some thoughtless fellow say, "If I were running a pa per, I would print the news. .1 do not care whom it might hit. If they don't want to get into the pa per, let them keep out of trouble." We remember one particular in stance iu which a similar remark was made. We had, through the pleadings of an old mother and a tearful sister, "killed" a good story concerning the escapade of a rather worthless young fellow. To his mother and sister he was not so worthless, and they prevailed on us not to publish the item as.it would disgrace them. Aud we did not print it. So we were accused of cowardice by this certain critic aud were told that we did not know how to run a paper. Iu vain we tried to explain that many things besides our own per sonal likes aud dislikes entered in to our weekly, labor. It was no use, he said, we should print the news. Six mouths later the same man came sueakiug up to our office to plead and beg with us not to print a much worse story iu which he himself was mixed up. We'd the story but had no inten tion of printing it, for it was one of those things that it is best for all concerned and for the public, to suppress. Put our critic had heard that we knew the details and, with the un fairness that characterized his first utterance, at once jumped to the conclusion that we would chortle with joy over a' chance to flaunt such a choice bit of gossip in the faces of our readers. Remembering his attitude on the other occasiou we let him squirm a bit. We reminded him of his former statement aud intimated that he had at that time opened our even. "We would publish the news. If anyone did not want to get into the Exposition, San Francisco, 1915 paper,let them keep out of trouble." He remembered. He admitted that he had so ex pressed himself. But he was wrong, he said. Aud this case was different. Moreover, he was a prominent man and married and all of the same stuff that every editor hears when some one gets into trouble. Well, the story was not printed. It never would have been. But we feel sure that our critic believes that the only thing that kept it out was his "promiuence" aud "influ ence." No, dear friend, about the only elemeut that was totally ignored in coming to our decision was you, yourself. Mow to Keep Babies Well. Perphaps the most valuable arti cle in the June issue of the South eru Woman's Magazine, aud cer taiuly the one of the most serious ayd helpful moment to those young mothers to whom it conies as a per sonal bit of instruction and good cheer, is the oue on "How to keep our babies well." This paper was written by a phy siciau of long experience as a spe cial practioner among babes and little children, and his article is giveu here with the sincere hope that it may be the means of help ing our young mothers through the trying summer mouths, and of making the new babies the happy and jolly ittle bits of good health and happiness that they have a right to be. This article is one of a number to be give at short inter vals iu the interest of child health.
