K I on tne innuenDurg lino If we are wise we will be liberal in I assisting our friends to make their I re-organization plans for the future. J.ne first money we loaned to our Al ios was for the more or less selfish I purpose of Belf-prcservation. The world was menaced by Prussianism I and we were menaced with the rest. But the loans that we mav make in the future will help in guaranteeing I American commercial prosperity. XNonc or us want a period of dc-1 pression anil panic and business trou-1 ble here unless we are open or secret I Bolshevists. Wo want the world to I get back to work, back to production, back to monoy-making and upbuild ing instead of money spending and de struction. There oucht to be a tremendous de mand upon American industries in the rc-buil!ing of broken trance, shut tered Belgium, Roumania, north Italy ana ?ervia. Upon this demand will depend in no small measure the amount of American prosperity in the near luture. Europe will be the market place for all manner of American made ar ticles for a long time, but most of all they will want raw materials, con struction materials, implements, tools and machinery. The demand for these will run into billions of dollars We have all the materials that will be needed. We have the resources and the manufacturing plants ready to start to work. Our plants are enor mous and are in far better condition than those of Europe. We are ready to switcn over our plants into the pro duction of what ever it may be that turope needs and can pay for. we nave had these thinirs for yers but we have had no export trade to amount to anything. We had no for eign trade organization and it must be confessed, too, that we had the ill will of the world. But now we have the good will of trie world. Uur friendship with the nations is well nigh universal. But raising the necessary loans to keeD the business of the government mov ing as it should move we will further strengthen the position of the nation both at home and abroad. We will make it easily possible for us to sret out in the world and realize world commerce. It will mean something tremendous to all Americans in the years to come. 1 he people we have fought shoulder to shoulder with, the nations whom we have assisted in the darkest financial hours by timely and large loans, will oc giaa to Duy of us, liut much money must be at hand , Is it Possible to Legislate life and Brains? Swift & Company is primarily an organization of men, not a collection of brick, mortar, and machinery. Packing Plants, their equipment and useful ness are only outward symbols of the intelli gence, life - long experi ence, and right purpose of the men who compose the organization and of those who direct it Will not Government direc tion of the packing industry, now contemplated by Congress, take over the empty husk of physical property and equipment and sacrifice the initiative, ex perience and devotion of these men, which is the life itself of the industry?

"In the summer of 1888 I had a severe at tack of cholera morbus. I gave the hotel porter fifty cents and told him to buy me a bottle of Chamberlain's CoV.e and Diarrhoea Remedy and to take no substitute. I took a double dose of it according to the directions and went to sleep. At fivto o'clock the next morning I was called by my or der and took a train for mynext stop ping place, a well man."

EH Pain Here is a message to suffering women, from Mrs. Kathryn Edwards, of R. F. D. 4, Washington Court House. Ohio. "I am glad to tell, and have told many women, what 1 suffered before 1 knew of Cardui and the great benefit to be derived? rom this remedy. A few years ago 1 became prac- , tically helpless . . TAKE The Woman's Tonic "I was very weak," Mrs. Edwards goes on to say, "and could not stoop without suffering great pain . . . Nothing seemed to help me until 1 heard of Cardui and be gan the use of it ... I gradually gained my strength . . .1 am now. able io do all my work." If you need a tonic take Cardui. It is for women. It acta gently and reliably and will probably help you as it helped this lady. All Draggistt EB12 .C;tiv'-wC("-Sa1W9,-;ilw'!:.''.'.''
