J. F. Slover, manager ot the Wea
ton Mercantile Company, writes to
The Leader from the Hotel Continen
tal, New Tork City, under recent date,
'I have gone over thd ground very
thoroughly with aeveral large manu
facturer and practically all aay that
from a business point of view we have
reached and paused the low ebb, that
a readjustment la due and that all
bualneaa Interests will doubtless soon
show a marked improvement. I have
likewise talked with many retail mer
chants from all parts of the country
and all aay that bualneaa la about nor
mal, wlhch report la very encouraging
to tne manuiacturera.
"Nevertheless, the war haa had
very depressing effect upon business
and many lines of merchandise are
practically exhausted. A year ago,
when the war started, nobody thought
It possible to clean up the millions of
dollars worth of European goods In
the New Tork warehouse. It's sur
prising, too, how dependent we are
upon Europe for thousands and thous
ands of article ot merchandise, and
nearly all (roods that It seems impossi
bla to get along without. I have Just
gone over my list and find S 7. classes
of merchandise, all manufactured in
Europe, that are mighty hard to find
even in this great market. Hunting
for theae required aeveral days, ai
many large house wer cleaned up,
and their answer . waa always tha
same: .'All gone and no more to be
had. Thla la a serious condition we
buyers are up against, but I consider
myself fortunate, aa I have by constant
pounding aecurtd the gooda desired
for our people and enough tg carry
ua through a long aleg.

women folk will be anxious to know
about the latest atylea In costs and
