TearUt Travel Is Cetly.
A Nation that spent $100,000,009
year touring Europe In ordinary fme
could easily apend more than a blllio
a year with the ununual attraction
battlefields over which relatives bad
marched In their campaigns against the
Hun. Money spent In this manne
would be an absolute loss to America
business. It would be money take
ut of the country with nothing ma'
terlal brought back In return for It.
In normal times the balance of trad
In merchandise has nearly always
been In favor of America, and yet 1
very freauently happened that the busl
- ness balance was against the United
States for the reason that we were
sending abroad sums of money, th
amount of which "can only be approxl
mated, for various purposes othe
than the purchase of goods.
Interest Charges Heavy.
We were paying, for Instance, some
IZOO.OOO.OOO to 1300.000.000 as Interes
and dividends on capital invested In
this country by Europeans. We were
paying some $200,000,000 a year to the
owners of ships sailing under foreign
flags. Added to these sums were the

taken to Europe by tourists.
In the futuYe things will be differ
ent- We shall certainly not' be paying
Interest and dividends on foreign In
vestments, for at the present time the
United States Is a creditor to the extent
of ten billions or more, on which there
should be an Interest income of ap
proximately U00.000.000 a year.
Presumably because of the large
merchant marine we have been con
structlng, we shall carry most of our
goods In American bottoms. Thus we
should save at least 1400.000.000 we
have paid out for transportation. In

stead an Interest Income of some $400.
000.000. or a difference of $800,000,000
in our favor as compared with pre-war
times. In addition to this we should
have an unusually large balance in our
favor In our merchandise trade, par
tlcularly until Europe gets on a, self-
supporting basis in the production of
Karvpeaa Travel Carfced.
But It Is readily apparent that If the
American people, who are Just now en
Joying an abundance of wealth, should
return with greatly Increased Interest
to the pleasure of touring Europe, it
will be very easy to overcome the
financial balance now In our favor. We
ran easily send back to Europe th
$400,000,000 we shall receive as Interest
on our credits and as much more to

balance In merchandise.
'or the present. It Is estimated that
no tourist travel will be permitted, as
all. the available space will be needed
for the transportation of goods. The
demand for passage Is very strong.
however, and It will not be surprising
If the pressure shall result in a relaxa
tion of the regulations and a throwing
open of the gates so that the rush to
Europe may begin.
Big Forelga Trade leesss.
There Is another channel through
which large sums of money will pass
from America to Europe. Persons of
foreign birth who have relatives In
France." Northern Italy, Germany and
Belgium will be sending money to
those relatives to assist them In recon
struction. This, of course, Is entirety
commendable, but It is a factor Jhat
must be taken Into consideration never
theless. In figuring the future of
America's financial position.
Money sent out of America, however
commendable the purpose, la so much
subtracted from our circulating medium
and vastly more subtracted from the
basis of our credit system.
Practically all discussion of our com
mercial status assumes that we shall
continue to be larger exporters than
Importers of commodities. This will
undoubtedly be true, for a time at least,
but with a free-trade law on the stat
ute books and with the nations of
Europe and Asia anxious to get back
into trade competition, the length of
time we shall be able to maintain our
balance of trade In commodities Is
problematical. For several months be
fore the war broke we were buying
more goods than we were selling. That
situation was brought about by the
free trade traffic law.

Frederick Kolle. M. P.. editor of New

Bitro-Pbosohate should be prescribed
by every doctor and used in every hos
pital to Increase strength and nerve

Miss Josephine Davis, reporting her
own experience with bltro-phosphate,
says: "It Is remarkable what it did for
me. After a few days I began to re

able to sleep soundly and all my little

Owing to the great variety of stom
ach aliments and the hundred and one
"specifics" for their treatment it would
Indeed be a mere chance if the average
layman selected a remedy for his own
case that would give substantial and
lasting benefits; even granting that the
selected remedy possessed real merit
when administered for a speclfle con
dition. It Is therefore not surprising
to find the sufferer from stomach Ir
regularities buying and trying first
one "cure" then another In a vain en
deavor to obtain relief.
Recent Investigations of the treat
ment of a large number of cases of in
digestion, dyspepsia, gastritis and con
ditions arising; from hyper-acldlty of
the stomach, prove that there is noth
ing more effective in the treatment of
these ailments than ordinary Serathol
which can be obtained from any good
druggist at trifling cost. Many a suf
ferer from these complaints has 'been
agreeably surprised at the almost in
stantaneous relief and subsequent per
manent benefit from Its use. In many
cases of hyper-acidity a single dose of
Serathol produces almost magic ef
fects. Adv. ; .
