The couiiuittee of arrangements will spare no trouble in niaking this one of the most enjoyable events of the season. All are cordially invited -particularly any who have not heretofore had an opportunity to at¬ teet the capabilities and merits of the good ladies, culinary efforts.
The prayerful attitude and e.xpres¬ sion of Fanning Baldwin caused a number of his friends to make in- niilry as to Ils cause. The flrst in¬ terrogatory propounded elicited the information that the recent visit of the stork, who left a beautiful Ilttle girl at their home, did not name the parlicular brand of food to be given and after careful e.\perlment it is found that nothing but angel's food will answer.
Plans and speclflcatlons are out for sealed bids on tho construction of a new flro hou.se. The department Is an.\iou.s to break groud as soon as the weather will permit.
How much of the increased business iu American products abroad 1.1 due to the war?
Officials of the Wilson Adminlstratlo* maintain that comparatively Ilttle of the great Increase In exports is due to war orders and that the country's present prosperity Is not based on temporary conditions.
Export figures for 19 14 and ISI 5 are now available and a study of them will help every reader to reach an Intelligent conclusion as to whether our present volume of business Is due to war orders or not.
The following table based on the flgures In the monthly summary of foreign commerce shows an Increase of exports due solely to the European war of $785,014,062. The figures are for the flscal years ending June 30, 1914, and 1915:
1914. . .$.'),80.3,659 165,302,385 26,574.574 27,079,092 C.272.197 57.566,261 146.227,780 7,839,151 7.472.476 10,767,448 827,205 3.142,297 08.835
Shoes, horses and saddles Meat and dairy products . .

1915. $77,953,686 573.823.676 6u.254.635 46.3o0.986 41.476.988 120.727.156 220.052.990 14.365.327 20.544,549 28.550,000 1.980,297 9.474,947 2,001,258 7,926,604 25,615,016
$467,113,313 $1.252,;27,405 $785,014,062
l-'igures compiled by the Journal of Comnierce from offlcial reports and brought up to the end of .N'ovember, 1915. continue this comparison and show how the value of «uch exports for eleven months of 1915 have In¬ creased over thc corresponding eleven months of 1914. The shipment of explosives increased from $7,000,000 in 1914 to $135,000,000 in 1915, horses and mules from $10,000,000 to $110,000,000, flrearm.s from $4,- 000,000 lo $11,000,000 and so on. showing that, with the continuance of the war and tbo inability of the European nations engaged in the struggle to supply the enormous requirements In the way of food, clothing, equip¬ ment and ammunition, there have come increasing demands for American products.
In the face of these flgures 11 is idle for anyone to deny that the great bulk of the Increased business In this country Is directly due to the Euro¬ pean war.
When the war is over this enormous export business is going to shrink.
No one Is in position to guarantee that it will stop shrinking when :l gets down to the 1914 basis, and in 1914, before the outbreak of the war. this country was facing an Industrial crisis.
Commercially and Induetrlally this country i.s totally unprepared— under the Underwood-Simmons free trade tariff law —to face the condition.^ that are certain to follow the cessation of ho.
