Tho, editor of tho Capital Journal
lias just written something nice about
Old Maids. It in the first time I havo
ever known anybody to say a kind
word about us, unless we said it our
selves, and wc ull know that wo are
under painful necessity of dealing with
the truth io an elastic way. But when
a perfectly nice, disinterested man
pnys us a compliment, in the bulk, so
to Bpenk, it sets the lot of us to bub
bling with gratitude, and that is why I
urn writing tliis nice picco for the
Capital Journal, for nothing. -
Of course there wasn't n word of
truth in the, argument, but it rejoices
my hoart to see that somebody bus
fallen for the bluff we have put up
the bluff that wo aro Old Maids be
cause we like it.
As ft matter of fact, we do not like it,
and never did and never will, and we
aro Old Maids because wo can't help
it just like everybody snys, and of
courso they know a lot about it. And
when it is like thnt, you'd think folks
would be ehnritnble; but tho world has
more respect for u woman who has tak
en a rolling pin to a couple or three
nuHljanus, t Jinn for us, and ono funny
iniug nuuut uiu .yiuius is tne tact tlmi
everyone "tumbles." This, my denr
fellow sisters, is due in a large meas
ure to the ngonizing effort that we
put forth to appear "Happy though
siui(le, " and wo smile around, and
smile around, nnd smile around, and
Hither overdo it insteud of looking
down our nose like wc reel inside.
We do not mind tho pity of e
folks who have had .the joy of taking
10 children through tho measles, having
a few hung, and some more who ought
to be, but it does not set well with ur
to have young people intimate that wo
nre not just' as young and beautify
ns we mice, were, only moro so.
As far as I am able to determine,
and I believe that all who know mo will
agree that I am qualified to speak on
the subject, Old Maids arc a lot like
other women, but we pretend to bo dif
ferent for reasons that aro quite ap
parent. However, this distinction
marks us; we believe that there nevet
was a married woman who made the
idenl wife and mother thnt we would
have made but the pathetic part of it.
nnd a part that we never confess to
each other is about men, of course.
We have no unmarried men friends.
Their natural instinct of self preserva
tion attends to that. Occasionally a
nnfely married man braves the possi
bility of broomsticks and hot water at
home, and looms up on our horizon
long enough to muke a few remarks ttnt
cheer ns on our wayi but it is to widow
ers, who have had three wives, and who
know just what women like, that we
must look for our joy. They poke us
in the ribsund chuck us under the ehir
and if we have not got their whiskers
pulled nut by then, they ask ni how we
like being Old Maids, and of course it
is all very jolly for us 1 don't think.
New York, Dec P. We are passing
inrougn extraordinary experiences in
the money market. Funds are excep
tionally abundant and easy, notwith
standing an expansion of a billion in
loans of New York banks during the
past twelve months. We have loaned
vast sums to Europe; invested in new
bonds and loans at a rapid Tate and re
purchased an enormous amount of
securities held abroad; and yet our
financial resources are far from ex
hausted and still seem to have great
possibilities. Enterprise is reviving.
Many new concerns are being launched
and old ones refinanced at a rate in
volving a heavy drain upon liquid
capital. In fact the absorption of
various forms of investments during
the Inst three months has been simply
amazing, and was only partially re
flected in the daily Stock Exchange
transactions in stocks and bonds. There1
are many evidences of widespread busi-l
ness revival. Among the most convinc-j
ing were the October report of the
Pennsylvania system, which showed on
increase of $5,1!00,000 in gross earn-1
ings and $3,500,000 in net, and the
JNew York Central statement, which re
ported an increase of $2,500,000 gross
and $2,300,000 net.
General trade continues to expand
and bank clearings Inst week showed
an increasa from hist year of nearly
57 per cent, in spite of diminished
speculative activity. November clear
ings were 75 per cent ahead of Inst
year and 40 per cent ahead of 1913.
Reports from the West, where good
crops nre a powerful stimulant, seem
especially encouraging. West of the
Alleghnnies the war counts for little
and local conditions are the principal
factor. Merchants in those regions re
port bare shelves and a widening de
mnnd for all classes of merchandise.
Big retail stores in all sections of the
country anticipate a good Christmas
trade. The Bteel industry continues
on its record breaking course, the pros-'
ent rnte of pig iron production exceed
ing all precedent. Trices nre again ad
vancing and in some instances have
reached a point that restrains orders;
but profits are large und this industry
is now enjoying a degree of prosperity
which should compensate for the lean
period which hiwl been endured foT
months. Itnilroads ire heavy buyers of
equipment, having placed liberal orders
for mils and engines, in addition to
nearly 35,000 cnrB in November, the
largest number since January, 1913.
Out export trade in steel is also promis
ing, Bince foreign1 requirements nre in
creashig whilo Great Britain nnd Ger
many, our chief competitors, are di
verting their energies to the demands of
war. -Building operations arc also being
resumed on a larger scnle under the
stimulus of rising confidence nnd an
easier credit situation. There has been!
a decided improvement in the demand!
for textiles; both cotton and woolen
fabrics reflecting this change in ad

vancing prices. New incorporations re
ported in November aggregated $243,
000,000, against $116,000,000 a year ago
and $121,000,000 in the same month of
1913. The total incorporations record
ed for the past eleven months reached
$1,32,000,000, against $877,000,000 in
1914 and $1,582,000,000 in 1913. These
facts show a remarkable revival of en
terprise from the severe contraction
which followed the declaration of war;
the low ebb being in October 1914,
when the volume of new incorporations
was only $70,000,000. The amount of
new security issues recorded in Novem
ber was- $230,000,000, against $28,000,
UO0 a year ago. This was the largest
sum in many months, except February
last when the total was swelled by sev
eral large railroad bond issues, includ
ing $100,000,000 by New York Central.
In the face of such facts no very pro
longed reaction in stocks can be ex
pected. In spite of satisfactory trade condi
tions, flattering railroad earnings, phe
nomenal activity in steel, ctciythe stock
market showed a steady declining tend
ency This was attributed partly to
continued liquidation, to foreign selling
and the approaching opening of
Congress. A lot of new problems have
lately been pressed upon public atten
tion, such as preparedness, revenue,
tariff, shipping, etc., and tho political
situation is further complicated by the
coming presidential campaign and the
excitement and uncertainty which that
movement is likely to produce. There
is no reason to anticipate any more dis
turbance than usual during the next
election, and when the president's mes
sage reveals the administration policy
for tho coming session, a sonse of relief
will probably bo felt. One important
factor in the reaction was tho weak
ness in the munition shares. Exagger
ated war profits will not be repeated.
The Allies hnve secured enough am
munition to tide over the emergency,
and Great Britain will now be ablo to
muke its own munitions at much lower
cost than supplies drawn from the
United States. Of course, while tho
war continues further onlcrs may be ex
pected, but they will be less urgent, less
treqnent and at lower prices than the
first series, loncerns with orders at
oarly prices that will keep them occu
pied for some months to come must con
tinue to show Kd results, but it is a
question whether these havo not been
exaggerated and fully discounted. In
directly the war continues the most tin
portant factor. Financial conditions
havo been adjusted to present circum
stances, thus discounting all known in
fluences. Any important developments
in tho strugggle would, however, be
promptly reflected in this market,
I'ence talk is plentiful, but the chief
belligerents show no disposition to
come to terms and the outlook is for
the struggle to continue through the
winter -at least, nlhoiigh surprises may
happen at any date.

Co-operation Among Farmers
and Combined Credit Would
Solve Problem
"Rural Credits" was the subject up
for discussion last evening ut tho meet
ing of the Men's Liberal club of the
Unitarian church. The principal speak
ers of the evening were Dana H. Allen
and Percy Cupper.
The discussions following the ad
dresses were participated in by J. R.
Robertson, Gideon Stolz and L. H. Mc
Mnhon. Dana H. Allen took the stand that
the greatest need was that of co-operation
among the farmers in purchasing
producing and marketing of farm pro
duets, and that tho farmers should ac
complish this through their own ' ef-.
forts, rather than through the assist
ance of the state or federal govern
ment. He nlso advocated that farmers
combine their eredit for securing better
accommodations, following the system
now in vogue in parts of Europe,
where communities combine their inter
ests, float their loans in tho way of
bonds, thereby securing a low rate of
interest. Loans of this nature are made
where it is agreed thnt the funds are
to be used in improving tho property.
Mr. Cupper advocated stnto and fed
eral legislation and endorsed the Duffer
plan of state legislation by which mon
ey at six per cent could bo secured for
agricultural purposes through tho state
The Hev. I?. F. Tischor stilted that
the meetings of the Men's Liberal el'
wero held for the general discussion of
the most important nnd pressing sub

rural" credits will be continued at the
next meeting in January, when Judge
Charles McNary will express his opin
ions. At the election last night tho follow
ing officers were elected:
Dana Allen, president; James Molt.
Jr., first vice-president; Rev. R. F.
Tischer. secretary; Gideon Stolz, treas
urer; Walter Denton, Dr. W. S. Mott
and Benjamin Williams, evecutivo com
mittee. After the discussion Inst night, re
freshments, were served by tho hospi
tality committee of the cliib.
