There is no w ilder hallucination than that the enor
nous increase in our export trade is largely in arms and
munitions sold to belligerents -.nnA
- It has been with food and clothing, raw material and
finished products that we have come to build an export,
trade and score an international balance in our lavor
We have sold the belligerents aeroplanes and auto-1
trucks, motor-cycles and barbed wire, cartridges and gun-1
,,ovder, firearms and explosives, in the six months irom
September to February, inclusive to the value of less
than $15,000,000. Horses, horse-shoes, rubber and wool
manufactures have run our sales of a 1 passible war
materials, in the six months, up to a total ot $92,400,000.1
Hut see what we have done in sales of other things!
In March alone we sold abroad nearly $00,000,000 of
lireadstufls and more than $28,000,000 of meat and dairy
products. This is an increase of $31,000,000 in exports
of breadstud's over those of March last year, and an m-j
crease of $18,000,000 in meat and daily products. !
In the nine months of the fiscal year from July 1 to
March ::i we sold abroad $118,000,000 of breadstuff,,
more than $1:12,000,000 of meat and dairy products more,
than $297,000,000 of cotton. - I
Of breadstuff s, meat and dairy products, cattle and
logs, cotton, cottonseed oil and mineral oils we sold
abroad in the nine months $9511025,000. ni,AAA j
In contrast to these stupendous figures, the $92,000,
000 sales of munitions look small indeed.
Long after the war has closed the American people
will be helping, as they are now, to feed and clothe the
nations which have summoned back their armies to re
sume the creation of hie and wealth alter their destruc
tion of them.
A Portland paper calls attention to the fact that the
bankers of that city have noted the fact that for the
eight months ending April 1, the exports of com
modities classed as merchandise from the United States,
covering the war period, were $57,000,000 greater thari
for the same period of a year ago. In the same period
the imports were $205,000,000 less than in the correspond
ing months of last year. The excess of exports over im
ports was $725,000,000 against $463,000,000 in the same;
eight months of last year. Bankers do not feel any un
easiness because of the lately developed fact that the
deficit in the United States treasury as shown by the loss
of revenues and the increasing government expenditures,
has grown from nothing the first of August, 1914, to
$100,0:i:;,:G April 24, 1915. j
William C. Levere, traveling secretary of the Signia
Alpha Epsilon, a college fraternity, recently visited Ore
gon on official business. Naturally he fell in love with!
the Willamette Valley and writes a long letter, describing
its beauties and wonders, to the Evanston (111.) News-
Index, in which he said among other things: "Salem, thei
capital oi uregon, is in the Willamette valley, and like
all these valley towns, it is as spotless as a bride. Last
evening I had dinner with Governor Withycombe, and if
I should repeat all the wonderful things he has to tell
about this valley, for he is a valley man himself, I would
have to write a book."
llulsey Enterprise: While deepening!

plane a few iln.VH ujjn Contractor J. W.
Wells, the well driller, ran his drill
into a lo) of wood at the SM-foot level
That the dri was boring ri(iht through:
the loj; was evident from the fact that
new shavings were brought up on the
drill. Other small pieces brought to
the surface were of a dark color. Mr.
Wells sa.vs he has found wood before
at the 45-foot level, but cannot account
fur a log at this great depth. j
Woodburu Independent: The cities
of Oregon are getting busy, doing
needed work and giving men employ
ment who prefer work to charity,
Portland will have SO miles more of
hard-surface roads, at Oregon City
there will be $300,0011 expenditure on
the locks, and other cities are doing
or preparing to do something, and
probably Woodlmrn will decide to have
that new higli school building con
structed this summer.
An Oregon university professor has just issued a
bulletin in which he proves to his own satisfaction that
the world is not drying up. The brewers and distillers,
however, do not share in his optimism.
If the Germans really feared a .food shortage they
would probably turn a few million Russian prisoners
loose to hustle their own grub.
The baseball war may end because of a shortage of
money on part of the belligerents. Most wars end for
that reason.
Clean-up and paint-up week is about over but there is
still time to do a whole lot of good work.

A Portlander who left London two weeks ago is
quoted by a newspaper in the former city as follows:
"There is not a beggar to be found in London, or at
least I met none, not even on the Embankment at mid
night, where, normally, a pedestrian is approached re
peatedly and asked for the price of a meal. Everyone is
working and at top wages. The dockers are making from
y,0 to $50 a week, the biggest wages they have ever
received. They art: being paid in gold and they are at
tending strictly to their jobs."
Germans write back from P.erlin that the city is busy,
everybody working, labor in demand and the price of
living reasonable.
Paris dressmakers and milliners are said to be having
the biggest boom in their business in years and there are
few Americans over there buying French styles either.
Evidently war is a great thing for boosting business
and putting old General Prosperity back on the job. All
the neutral countries are going through a period of
. depression with slack business, little demand for labor
and prices of necessities higher than ever.
If these reports from the war zone are true it ought to
fr.nd to. biuiin iimvnism in this country. We are overlooking
splendid business opportunities possibly by neglecting to
swat Mexico, and to make prosperity doubly sure we
might twist the English lion's tail a little, and give
Kaiser 1 1 ill a swat or two just for good measure.
Ex-President Taft says that the prosperity which
M'enis to be sweeping over the country may be artificial
at least he fears so. Now we wouldn't have thought
that of Taft because any kind of prosperity should be
welcomed in these parlous times instead of being greeted
with a suspicious frown. It's a good time for the chronic
knockers to sing low.
A Eugene gentleman has already formulated a com-1
prehensive platform upon which peace should be con
cluded in Europe, lie fails to explain, however, how he
purposes to secure the consent of the warring powers to
the agreement.
Former Mayor Straw of Marshfiold. whose admirers'
presented him with a house, should recall the experience'
of Admiral George Dewey and profit thereby.

A household remedy of the French !
peasantry, consisting of pure vogotablcj
oil, and said to possess wonderful merit.1
in the treatment of stomach, liver and!
intestinal troubles, has been iniroduceil
in this country by George II. Mayr, who'
for twenty years has been one of the
leading down-town druggists of Chi-
ea go and who himself was cured by its!
use. So ipiick and effective is its action1
that a single dose is usually enough to
bring pronounced relief in the most
stubborn cases, and many people who
have tried it declare they never heard
of anything to produce such reninrliable
results in so short a time. It is known
lis Mayr's Wonderful Uemedy and can
now be hl at all loading drug stoves.
