Construction work everywhere has
been slowed up by the coal and rail

LOOKS FOR GOOD BUSINESS
The Manufacturers Record, analyz
ing the economic situation, finds
ground for a prophecy of good busi
ness in the south following the moving
of crops that have been produced this
year. "There has never been a time
when the advertiser could secure bet

Vlt is said there was a buyer's strike
two years ago. The truth is that the
purchasing power of rural district and
city precinct alike was cut to the bohc.
They could not buy who had not the
means to buy.
"For two years there has been piling
up a mountain of unsatisfied wants
and requirements. Not only are there
years of construction work to be made
up; but there is hardly a farm in the
south, or in the country, which does
not require comparatively heavy pur
chases for maintenance, quite aside
irpm normal improvement.
fCotton is again at something like
a compensatory price and promises to
go higher. Diversified farming is free

troughs. Tobacco prices are good. For
the first time in two "years here will
be . money to spend in the south, mon

people have been temporarily doing

Is day-dreaming a pood or a bad
thing? -The question is being; asked
afresh as a result of the vogue of
psychoanalysis, and expert opinion,
if there can be said to be such a
thing, is much divided. Old-fashioned
didactic" literature used particularly
to warn the young apainst this in
sidous habit, which promoted "wool
gathering," and interfered with
practical efficiency. Some modern
psychologists seem h good deal men
tolerant, and suggest that - the day
dream may have both a bio'.ogical
and a social function. To imagina
tion, says a writer in the English
scientific review Discovery, man
owes his supremacy in the struggle
for existence, but this faculty, like
many other deeply-rooted instincts,
may be difficult to utilize or satis iv
in the equable environment of civili
zation. Hence the "flight from re
ality" which is most easily affected
by the day-dream.
Dislike for such an escape from
the realm of fact probably had much
to do with the strong4 opposition to
noVel-reading in the days of our
great-grandfathers. But the fascina
tion of the novel proved irresistible1,
and now the motion picture reaches
an even greater public is the pic
ture more or less likely than tii
book to promote day-dreaming? It
can be argued both ways, for while
it is true, as the writer in Discovery
sajs, that the spectator "can be
come, with a minimum of effort, a
participator in the drama," the inv
agination may be less vigorously ex
ercised than in conjuring up a visai
image out of printed word.;. Thus
the film drama conceivably might
tend to Viko the, place of the day
dream, leaving the mind less given
to fantasy at other times. But the

about what people do with their
minds when they are free to do what
they please. Novels are still the
best guide, but the mostgiftcJ nov
elist has to depend partly on intui
tion, partly on the close study of c.
few individuals. Filson Young, in a
recent Saturday Review remarked
that "few people make p. habit .of
thinking at all for more than a few
seconds at a time; thinking require
effort and concentration J lard
thinking does, but the statement as
a whole seems too sweeping to nc
warranted until more is known of
the mental habits of peopi? in gen
eral. Mr. Young distinguishes be
tween "thinking and imagining, which
latter, ; he says, occupies the Drains
of mosVof us: "We see mental pic
tures 6f various 20 iditions, pleasing
or distressing; we see ourselves act

he holds, is learning to cut off the

calls thinking; conceivably in times
of harassement it might be restful to

if thev prevented insomnia, they
served what the most pregmatic foe
of the. "flight from reality" would
have to , recoenize as a useful func
tion; nowadays anything that can ba

is falrlv immune from criticism. It
more were known about the msiaes
of peoples' minds it would probably
be found that a surprising number
of them had learned some mental
routine of thought control, making
for tranquility and for some measure
of contentment. That the day-dream.
in its protean ' forms, has a' useful
function can hardly be questioned.

It has not been generally realized
!in this country that during the past
I lli: months an important r.ev epoch
I in the history of. meteorology has
j opened with the systematic use oft;

for Europe this effect is revolution
ary. iiy arrangement with the United
States government, observations tak
en at 8 p. m. eastern time, are now
being sent daily to France, and thence
are broadcast in Europe at 11:30 a.
m. Greenwich time. With these full re-
J ports from JNorth America, supple-j
mented by data irom snips scatLereu ,
over the north Atlantic, European j
meteorologists are hble to forecast the
weather with a precision previously
undreamed of, and in particular it has
now become possible to forecast chang
es two ov three days ahoad, which is
of special value for a maritime coun
trv like Great Britain, which former

Hardly less important i:- the re
cent establishment of a chain of cir
cum polar observatories, which it is
hoped may soon be completed by a
station, on Baffin island at-the point
on - Davis strait nearest to western
Greenland.'. The first of ihese out
posts was ' established on Spitzlergen,

Even more desolate and remote as Jan

are expected to help in testi.cg the
theories of Bjorknes in' regard to the
origin of cyclones in ihe meeting of
a cold current from the polar regions
and the warm equatorial air.
From thesa new sources of in
formation our own weather bureau
will profit greatly, even if it is less

gists on data derived from outside.
While every region has its own climate
and its own local peculiarities of

the 'arga movements that affect the
