^"7 7Dec.:17th, 1924."' . THE   JLEDUE,   CKREENWOOD,   31 &
Prospects Are Bright
As thc year draws to a close, ami annual statements and reports of all
���kinds .-.ie in four.se of preparation, it is beginning to be understood that conditions throughout Canada havo git-atly Improved during the twelve mouth,
and I'uriln-r that till present indication:; point to this general betterment being
maintained and increased during 1B25.
I'robabiy tho most important factor leading to this improvement, are tli.-*
liigher prices now prevailing for grain, and which are on a much higher level
-than a year ago. White the aggregate yield is considerably smaller titan last
year, the value of tlie !!)���__ i crop i.s estimated to be approximately f 100.000,000
greater, aud the cost of liarvo.--t.iug.- threshing aud marketing has been lower:
The net result is a substantial increase in the amount of money realized by
the farmers, although, unfortunately. It ia not as evenly distributed through
till dis'rifts of the West as. might be- desired.
The effect, however, L< seen in a marked reduction iu old outstanding
liabilities. Scores of .municipalities are reponlng the wiping off of long
overdue fax arrears and the cleaning up of the municipal balance sheet.
Bank*, mortgage anil loan companies report the name good news, namely,
the wiping out of old debts. Slowly, perhaps, but surely, all thU money
finds It.s way back into it_.v031.meiu and productive channels. Capital in never
allowed to long remain, idle, but is put to work again as quickly as possible,
aad all the more rapidly when there is a general renewal of confidence and
a feeling of hopefulness throughout tiie country.
Keeent reports of trade activities reveal larger sales iu many retail-lines,
showing lhat. in addition to liquidating old indebtedness, farmers tire finding,
themselves in a position to now make purchases of needed articles, but which
they had to struggle along wlihouL during tho past few year.*. As p.ceumu-
lated stocks of goods held by merchants aro thus disposed of, aud replenish;
ment becomes necessary, a revival in industry will follow and unemployment
decrease. .Such a development is anticipated iu all quarters during the coming year.
Further evidence of the general improvement taking place throughout
Canada is found in the repot t.s of the 'Department of Trade and Commerce.
These reveal a steady increase in the volume and value of exports of Canadian products over imports from other countries. The adverse balance of
trade of a few years ago has been overcome until now Canada's exports exceed its imports by over $200,000,000. In other words, Canadians sold over
$100,000,000 more of products to other countries this, year than one year
ago aud bought nearly 5100,000,000 less.
Slowly but surely conditions are becoming more settled Im Europe and
throughout the wprld, and, as has all along been contended in the articles appearing in this column, it is ouly through n 'restoration of tho buying power
���of foreigu countries impoverished by the war, and a consequent demand for
those products which Canada cau supply on a largo scale, and for wliich we
must have foreign export markets, that prosperity can be established in this
Dominion. Canada produces far more than it can itself consume, and if
foreign markets are unable to absorb and pay good prices for our surplus
there must inevitably be-stagnation and depression here.
II is especially gratifying, therefore, to: learn that during the year Canada's exports to China virtually doubled; to Germany they nearly double; to
Japan they increased by ��9,000,000; while to all parts-of tho British Kmpire
they Increased by over $32,000,000 and by over $7,000,000 to the United States.
On the other hand,'Canada bought 586,000,000 less from the United Status,
thus Improving onr trade balance with our neighbors to the south to tho extent of j59:i.OOO.OOu Id one year.
Those most con versa ut with iislernaiional trade aud commerce.and who
aro. well informed on the. trend of. conditions the', world over, hold the View
. .that'this-: betterment during; the hater half.of 1934.will continue.well into the

Credit   For   German   Railways
New York Syndicate Loaning Privately-Managed Roads $10,000,000
' German railways, state-owued but
under the Dawes plan., privately-managed, are to get $10,000,000 credit from
11 New York banking syndicate and
$5,000,000 in London. It is another
evidence that, under the new regime.
Germany.can be financed on' sound
principles.
The German state railways comprise
what is probably the largest system
ln the world, with 33,000 miles of lino.
Like nearly all state-owned railways,
rolling stock is new (public railway
officials.appear to buy locomotives by
the gross), and of modern types. The
total capitalization of the railways Is
about $5,500,000,000. Thc lines are
estimated to be worth in, excess of
?6.000.000,000. So there is ample security for tho credit so long as the
Dawes plan prevents further political
troubles.���Buffalo Express.   ���
Safety  At Rail Crossings
A Good Rule For the Safety of
Motorists
When approaching a grade crossing
bring the automobile to a stop,'then
look in both directions,, listening latently for the sound of an approaching
train. If you have made sure tliere
is do ��� train approaching from either
direction, proceed to cross the track���
in Tow or second gear is the best way.
To Home people this instruction may
seem absurd, but it may be said the
9,000 persona who have lost their lives
at grade crossings did not stop-to ascertain whether or not a train waa approaching before proceeding to cross
the tracks.

Sweden Establishes
Freight Air Service
Goods Delivered 240 Miles Distant In
Three Hours
A regular commercial express aud
freight service by air to neighboring
countries is the latest development-in
the use of airplanes. The freight service has actually.started over the Hue
between Stockholm and Helsingfors.
Finland, and thus augments the air
traflic between those two countries',
which has hitherto been limited to
passengers and mails. The distance
t'o Helsingfors is about 240 miles
across the. Baltic Sea, a good day's
run for a small steamer:' The peculiar utility of air shipping was demonstrated by the fact that the' first cargo
carried half a ton of medical .supplies
which were delivered in Helsingfors
three hours after being taken' on
board. ..-'-������     """ .
Annual Meeting of Bank of Montreal
THE BUSINESS SITUATION
The 107th annual general meeting of
the shareholders of the Bank of Montreal was marked by interesting addresses by Sir Vincent Meredith, President, and Sir Frederick Williams-Taylor, ��� General t\Ianager.    '
The President declared tharhe was
satisfied-"tha.t a gradual improvement
in the trade' situation is occurring.
Statistical returns support this view,
and- while there is irregularity in the
movement, in the main the trend "is
upward." After pointing out the
gratifying growth- of a favorable balance of trade, the President declared
that ho regarded this.increase in Canada's foreign trade credit as "an augury of a not, distant improvement in
domestic business."
The President concluded his-nddress
with tho following expression, of confidence: "
."My last word ls a word of confidence and encouragemehf. The interests of your Bank aro more closely
bound up with thoso of Canada than
ever before nnd unless Canada prospers, the Bank cannot expect the prosperity It should enjoy. I believe Canada will prosper. It offers inducements to immigrants vastly superior
to those of other countries which are
at present endeavoring to attract citizens. It atands third amongst' the
countries of the world in natural resources.
"Yet cardinal virtues must be practised and I would again stress the necessity for hard work and economy, so
often preached and seldom put into
practice, and the need for immigration.
Given these three things, I.look for
ward with the utmost  confidence to
Canada's future."
Much to be. Thankful For
Sir Frederick WHUams.-Taylor, the
General Manager, in l_i3 address to the
shareholders, said in part:  .
"First arid foremost I would say thai,
there must be an end to the present
apathy about public affairs.     In my
opinion, those who will not go to tho'
trouble to register their vote In muni- -
cipal.  provincial,   and-federal   affairs '
should be penalized In some form fof
their indifference.
"We all know that apart from tlni
cost and effects of "the war Canada's
troubles are the accumulated result of
what may be termed iu mild and torn
perate language Imprudence in affairs:
"Good government is n hard problem In. any country. No government
con move faster In those matters than
public opinion will permit, and upon
tlio people lies the responsibility of
voting for economy.
"We, in. Canada; havo ranch-to bo
thankful for. If this wero-a poor country our case would bo a bad one, but'
we havo riches In our forests, our
fields, our fisheries, and ln our minerals, also ln our mighty water powers,
and in the industry and ambition of
our people. o
"If Cauadii were a privato business
enterprise the situation would present
no great difficulty, for we are solvent,
with wealth vastly In excess of our
liabilities; and a way would be found
by following the obvious course of-cut-
tiug down our overhead and, like a
sane, capable, and industrious peoplo,
putting our houso In order."

TOO WEAK TO WALK
The Sad Condition of a Brandon Lady...

"I owe my present good health to
Dr. Williams' Pink rills." says Mrs.

tells of her new found health as follows:���"Some years ago I had an attack of pneumonia and it left me In a
terribly weakened and run-down state.
I was unable to walk for a long time
as I had practically lost the use of mv
legs, and had to be carried upstairs,
for I had not the strength to go myself. I became despondent over my
condition i'or I had tried many remedies, which failed to help me. While
in this wretched condition a ladv
friend urged me to give Dr. Williams*
Pink Pills a trial and I procured a
supplyv After taking the pills for a
while I could see that I was growing
stronger, and I gladly continued their
use until I had fully regained my old-
time health and strength. Now if I
feel at all run-down at anv time, 1 at
once take Dr. Williams' "pink Pills,
and they never fail me. I can therefore warmly recommend them to
others who may bo run-down."
Thero is no better tonic than Dr.
