This is emphatically are
of 0 immerse. The ho oe life of
every human being wherever
residing is, to a greater or less
degree, efleoted by the relations
he or she bears to the trade
with other nations, Commercial
statistics divides the world into
62 principle nationalities and
people occupying 41,414,336
square miles with an aggregate
population of 1,608,659,000. In
area the United States occupies
one fourteenth of the inhabited
world, and in population one
nineteenth of the people.
The Commerce of the entire
world in 1903 measured by
imports and exports was $21,
863,1 7,000. Our Commerce by
the same rule of measurement
for the same year was $2,417,
'These figures show that with
one fourteenth of the area of the
inhabited globe and one nine
teenth of the people, we do one
ninth of Hie world's business.
As an exporting nation the
United States stands at the
head with $1,392,231,000 worth,
followed by the United King 'on
with $1,379,283,000 worth.
This mukes the per capita

of the two volumes as hooks of
refeience we see in the war dis
patches . from Asia many
leferences to the city of
Niuchwang Manchusa, China.
The question arises whut concern
has the farmers in Union county
in that far off city and what
interest is it to them whether
China, Russia or Japan coutrals
that city and the region there
about. By turning to page
966-7 of volum 1 the official
report of . the United States
census II B Miller, an Oregon
man, that in 1895 the people of
that city bought no American
made flour, that in 1896 there
89933 pounds of American flour
sold there and in 1899 the trade
in American flour had grown to
13,980,533 pounds. Here then
we find is or was before the
Russian and Jspan war iuterupt

flour made from 320,982 bushels

statistician who says 14,000,000
