THAT HUNDRED-MILLION-DOLLAR GOLD POOL
at all hazards on account of the menace involved."
The N. Y. Times voices the more generally accepted view of the gold pool, when it says:
"The amount of gold which the banks forming this pool agreed to supply is $100,000,000, which, it is realized, would not go far toward paying all of our requirements in the next few weeks; but the moral effect upon Europe of the knowledge that the United States is prepared to send gold abroad is counted upon to lessen the pressure for payment.
"Contributions to a gold pool to protect this country's credit are not new, having been collected twice before in the past twenty years. But the present operation is the first that has enlisted the support of the entire country. Credit for the success of this pool must be given in part at least to the new Federal Reserve Board, which furnished a national organization through which appeals could be made to the various banking centers. The success of the plan is a favorable augury of the value to the country of the new banking system.”

American Exports Continue
to Be Normal. XPORTS of the United States reached a normal amount with
the week ending September 19th, which was the first week for a long time to show an increase in exports over the corresponding week for 1913. Our imports, however, remained still below the normally expected amount.
The increase in exports does not reflect, however, the advantage of the new opportunities arising through the European war. It is made up primarily of unusually large shipments of grain to Europe to furnish food supplies for warring nations.
Comments in the press regarding export opportunities are divided between glowing descriptions of opportunities and warnings from the more experienced business men. The National City Bank has started a publication of a new magazine called The Americas, to be published in the interest of the extension of the United States trade with South America. In its first issue, Mr. Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank, says regarding the trade opportunities in South America:
The pressure of business need not be interrupted while you are making yourself “fit” again. Buffalo Lithia Springs Water offers the conclusive evidence of thousands of complete cures. For years and years it has been the standard corrective for many ills -particularly of the digestive and eliminative organs.
Hundreds of eminent physicians (many of them standing at the head of medical profession) have endorsed Buffalo Lithia Springs Water and prescribed its use for the cure of the disorders mentioned.

HUNTER MCGUIRE, M. D., LL. D., late President American Medical Association, said: “I know from constant use of it personally and in practice that the results obtained from its use are far beyond those which would be warranted by the analysis given. I am of the opinion that it either contains some wonderful remedial agent as yet undiscovered by medical science, or its elements are so delicately combined in Nature's laboratory that they defy the utmost skill of the chemist to solve the secret of their power."
