IT'S EASY TO PEEL OFF

Tiis is what you should do to she a

Let this stay on over night; .vasli it off
next morning. Hepeat daily until jour
complexion is as clear, soft and beauti
ful as a young girl s. Tins result is
inevitable, no mailt;' how hoiIo'I or is

The process is entirely harmless, ho lit

for a wrinkled skin. An ounce of it dis

Foreign Exchange Needs
Help to Stimulate Trade
New York. Aug. 2S, 1 9 1 .".
Somo form of relief in tiie foreign
exchange, situation is imperative, uud
a solution will undoubtedly bo facilitat
ed by tho conference between American
and British bunkers now on the way
to this port. Our foreigu trade contin
ues seriously derailed, imports being
greatly curtailed while exports persis
tently show a tremendous expansion.
For cxainple, the exports from New
York during the week ending August
14th were $31,N00,000 against $10,700,
000 the same week last year; while cr.ir
imports, though increasing slightly, are
still running far below normal. This
excessive preponderance of exports will
continue, and probably upon an even
larger scale during the remainder of
tiic calendar year. On .Tune ilOth, the
excess of exports had reached $1,000,-
000,000, and some authorities estimate
that it will touch as high as &.W),
000,000 bv December Hist. Kurope can
not pay in merchandise or gold; some
form of credit must be established if
we aro to accept foreign war orders
The urgency of the crisis is emphasized
bv the coming to New oi k of Lou
ilon '8 leading bankers. The idea of
importing 2.50,0110,000 gold is less pop
ular here thnn when first broached.
Tho supply of the precious metal in this
country now estimated at nearly $2,
000,000,000 is so excessive that our
bankers are naturally unwilling to sec
any further addition because of its use
lossnoss and its possible inflationary
tendencies. The latter must be care
fully guarded against. It is well to re
member, however, that it is inflation
of credit that is most dangerous, and
bankers always have it within their
power to curtail credit, whether based
upon gold, seeuritios, merchandise or
reputation. An excess of gold or money
may nnd sometimes does cause inflation,
but this tendency can always be avoid
ed by those who control the lending sit
uation; and now that the federal re
servo system is in oKrntioii inflation
could bo much more easily resisted.
Moreover, if this proposed $2.50,000,000
in gold were imported, the credit based
thereon would be almost entirely de
voted to financing foreign war orders,
and would have little effect here be
yond tho stimulus of wnr orders which
has already been experienced and large
ly discounted in the present high prices
of tho wnr group shares. Tho settle
ment of British obligations by sales of
American stocks seems as far off as
ever, flood buyers could undoubtedly
bo fcfind, but John Bull is evidently in
disposed to surrender more of iiis Am
erican investments, which are among

has been some talk of mobilizing or
nillssinlT Itritisll hntllillS of Americans
and depositing them hero as collateral
for loans, lint even this plan arouses
no particular enthusiasm. On this sido
of tho Atlantic the most approved plan
is, of course, a liritish loan in this mar-
ket on conditions likely to attract Am-
nrienn capital: but tile terms asked are
likely to strike hard at liritish prUlo
and urestiae; because England cannot
expect to borrow on this side of the
Allnntic at rates and terms to which
she has been accustomed on the other.

o-io of these plans may possibly be
adopted nod nn important loan, pos
sibly $500,000,000, arranged for at an
early date. Others would follow, pro

might be added. With the possibility Ambassador Von Hernstorff today
of these enormous demands upon tho submitted (0 Secretary of State Lull
American money market before us, it cing the substance of Germany's reply
is well to move cautiously in nil inune- to i'lendent Wilson's lust, noto to lier
tnrv commitments. I lin. nnd it consists of tho acceptance
At tins writing the outlook or our
relations witn Germany is decidedly
more encouraging, smco neniiiuiy
through her representatives has stated
that she would endeavor to satisfy our
demands when convinced that she is
wronif. The hope, however, that Ger
many will modify her methods of sub
marine warfare to suit our ideals should
not lend us into uuwisci confidence.
While it is to be devoutly hoped that
President Wilson's demands will be sat
isfied, it is simply common prudence
to keen ill mind the cnnsecpieiicos if
they are not. As to tho war itself,
there are no dependable peace signs
yet in sight, notwithstanding the peace
talk that occasionally comes to the sur
face. Passion between tho belligerents
is too intensely aroused and the issues
involved are ton vital to allow set t In -
ment before one side or tho other is
exhausted. It mav bo that weariness
and oven financial embarrassment are
making themselves felt, but. of the sheer
exhaustion necessary to end the war
there is as yet no positive symptoms
anywhere, unless it be in Turkey,
which has been the "Sick Man of l'.u-(
rope" for generation. '
Somo idea of tho increase in business'
activity can be obtained from a com- j
parison of bank clearings with a year
ago. The total clearings at principal
cities for the first three weeks of Aug-;
list was $!I,!I77,000,OHO, against $(!,!II7,-I
000,000 a year ago, an iiicreaso of $:i,-
;i0:i,00O,000. Jnclmleil ill these loiais
aro clearings at New York, amounting'
to $5,005,000,000, against $U,7 15,000,
000 last year, an increase of $,Si),00o,
000. The great increase in New Yrk's
clearings is chiefly due to tno excep
tional outburst of activity on the stock
exchange, which was closed a year ago.
There has been a sharp revival of
speculation, amounting to a boom in
the war group, and the transactions
since January 1 arc more than double
those of a year ago. At tho same time,
there has been a steady expansion of
legitimate business throughout the
country, as demonstrated by an increase
of Ull per cent in clearing during tne
second week of August in tho Middle
Stntes, of 24 per cent in the New Eng
land States, 10 per cent In the Middle
WVst, 8 per cent In tho Pacific, Stutes,
10 per cent in other Western States and
4 per cent in the Southern States. Re
ports from 135 cities in the middle of
August showed an increase of nearly
44 per cent, than which no better evi

found, even after eliminating specula-1

factory, the only cloud being our dit'fi-
adjusted, as now seems probable, we
ma)- look for good business during the
balance of the year. Tno agricultural ;
districts will teel the lienefit ot huge
crops and fair prices. Tho steel indus
try shows increasing activity at ad
vanciug prices for reasons well under-
stfl; and our railroads must soon re
flect the changes for the better in
larger gross earnings. Talk of an ex
tra session of congress should bo dis
couraged, because it is absolutely un
necessary. The executive department
of the government under President Wil-
son's leadership is abundantly able to!,
meet almost any situation liKelv to tie-
velop between now and December. Of
eenrse. only congress can declare war:
and peace is more likely to be preserv
ed when congress, which is only a legis
lative and not nn administrative body,
is not in session. On the stock ex
change business continues to show
feverish activity, speculation being
most pronounced in the industrials ben
efiting by war orders. The market,
however, exhibits a broadening ten
dency, and there is more disposition to
operate in the better class of industrials
mid railroad shares, especially those
which will benefit from trade improve
incut. The technical situation of the
market 'ma been somewhat improved
by temporary setbacks which acted as
a test of values and brought in a new
influx of buyers. Unavoidably the wnr
remains the controlling factor in the
market, which must be expected to

according as the day's news is regard,
