UPWARD TURN IN BUSINESS
To-day, after twenty years, this man has from his first class of investments bonds worth $20,000 or
more; from his second, preferred stock worth easily $12,500; and from his third, common stock that in normal market he could sell for $6,000. In addition he has his purely speculative investments —those that have turned out well—and they are worth perhaps, all told, $20,000. Now he has started at the beginning again, with a new cycle; that is to say, all the money he gets from his fourth line of investments—mining stocks, etc., he puts into bonds.

SIGNS OF AN UPWARD TURN
IN BUSINESS NDICATIONS are abundant that war has done its worst so far as
the business conditions of the United States are concern
erned, and that business is now entering a period of increased prosperity. The present improvement is principally in those lines of goods which are demanded by the warring nations as supplies. During the past two months the United States has made record-breaking shipments of wheat to England and France, and the United States manufacturers have received large orders not only for arms and munitions of war, but for clothing, boots and shoes, underwear, canned meat, other canned foods, motor trucks and horses. Activity in these lines is, of course, bound to be followed by improvement in other lines. For example, certain manufacturers of boots and shoes are considering large increases in their plants and machinery to take advantage of this tremendous demand for army shoes.
Such increases in equipment indicate orders for the iron and steel and machinery industries. The steel industry suffers more severely than others when times are hard and no extensive improvements to plants are being made. Steel, it is said, is either "prince or pauper.” Lately it has been decidedly "pauper." Its plants have been operating at only about 40 per cent. of capacity and prices have been cut drastically. The revival of activity in other lines will bring about a resumption of activity in the steel business, but this is of the future, not the present.

It is apparently forgotten altogether that by robbing Germany of her toy trade with Great Britain, amounting in 1912 to £1,147,400 worth of German imports, her £1,404,500 worth of toy trade with the United States, and her considerable trade with France, Russia, Argentina, Italy, Australia, and various other countries, we may also rob her of her capacity to purchase, for instance, British cotton goods. We may have much to gain by the collapse of German militarism, but we have nothing whatever to gain by the collapse of German industry, and one of the first things to be done after peace is restored will be to remind the public that we are a nation of admirable shopkeepers, and that there is no advantage for us in the bankruptcy of our customers.”
My twelve years' experience in life insurance work plainly showed me the reason. Over half the deaths of those in the prime of life are from insidious diseases of liver and kidneys-diseases which develop dangerous-evenfatal-stages before their presence is suspected. Men who think themselves in perfect health suddenly "give out.” Without warning they find themselves “on the shelf” just when business demands their matured ability. Why should this be so ? Can not a man by taking intelligent precautions discover these usually unsuspected diseases in time to head them off ? To head off these diseasesthat's the problem. Increase in

“I wouldn't be without the assurance your service gives me if it cost ten times your small fee. Here's my check for another year." A well-known importer wrote us:
"Last week we entertained a friend at dinner. Yesterday we attended his funeral. He died of Bright's Disease. When talking of the suddenness of his taking off I told my wife such a thing was impossible with us (from that cause) while under the watchful care of your Bureau.' A physician's brother kindly says:

JUDGE GARY ON BUSINESS WARS AND NATIONAL
WARS OT only is the world—especially the business world—awaking to
the foolishness of wars between nations but to the foolishness as well of employing the principles of warfare in business. Judge Gary, chairman of the board of directors of the U. S. Steel Corporation, believes that those principles are equally abominable in both cases.
He spoke recently before the American Iron and Steel Institute, on the similarity of the results of the European War and competitive warfare in business. He said:
Among those over 40 there

on what grounds life insurance companies base their rejections of applicants. All the examiners rely on analysis of the urine as the one sure proof of the applicant's bodily condition. Sounding the chest and listening to the heart reveal only what is on the surface, SO to speak. To discover the hidden, unsuspected and yet the most surely fatal diseases nothing will satisfy them but a scientific urine analysis.
And what is the result? More than half the applicants over 40 years old show signs of the early stages of Bright's Disease or Diabetes-and rejected by "standard” companies. If you are over forty the lesson is plain. You need to keep informed of your condition. If more than half the men of your age are not safe risks for insurance companies, you can't afford to
risk early death when knowledge and a little care will prevent it. Yes, the one hope of curing Bright's Disease and Diabetes lies in detecting them in the early stages. It was largely to make this possible that I founded the National Bureau of Analysis.

Before success or glory or indemnity. now every participant in the contest must realize that it would have been better to have settled, if possible, all the existing differences, real or imaginary, on a basis approved by some competent and impartial tribunal. The sums expended and to be expended by the different nations would have greatly extended their opportunities for success and happiness if wisely used for those purposes. Personally, I believe in a positive and binding agreement between all the nations for the final settlement by arbitration of all international disputes by a competent and impartial tribunal, and for the enforcement of decisions by the nations not personally involved in the question at issue. Such an agreement could be made, such a tribunal could be permanently established and such an enforcement made practical if the nations were so disposed. . . . I hope the time will come, even tho not in my time, when wars and rumors of wars will cease altogether.
