GROWTH OF EXPORTS.
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

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.
