HEROIIN MEDICINE CO, Atlanta, Ca.
mew IORK, . May 19. A very
small proportion or our people seem
to fully realise what being at war
means to the United States. America
is not yet thoroughly awake as to the
Importance or the consequences to
ourselves of the struggle into which
we have lately entered. Very few
seem to realise that the preservation
of civilisation and freedom the world
over is at stake. As a nation we feel
quite comfortable In our trusted lm
munlty from attack. Probably if a
portion of the Oerman fleet were to
break through the waif ot steel In the
North Sea and succeed In crossing the
Atlantic, shelling some of our eastern
cities, we should then stand up and
take vigorous notice, but thus far
we have become accustomed to the
unseen protection of the BrltUh fleet,
and our sons are not yet giving up
their lives In the trenches or coming
home maimed and disfigured foi life.
As a people we certainly devoutly
wish to avoid these painful reulltieo,
and up to data our shocks from the
war have been limited to the loss of
a few lives and ships from submarine
warfare. Yet genuine realization of
the perils now facing us seoms con
fined to the irovernment. to those en
gaged in our defense und to-relatively
few of our leading business men. In
all probability something will happen
ere long to dissipate this npatny anu
bring us to a keener smite of the hage
task before us. France has given us
a magnificent example of patriotic
sacrifice. Kor nearly three years
Great Britain with a population of
about 45,000,000 has been carrying
the brunt of this battle for freedom.
Her fleet has not only Insured us from
Invasion, but has kept the seas open
and free for our foreign trade, the
loss of which would have been an In
calculable Injury to our economic wel
fare. She has further raised an army
of about 6,000,000 men, helped finance
her allies to the extent of about 14.
600.000.000 and aided In feeding the
starving millions In Belgium, Armenia
and Serbia. She is certainly doing
more than her share, and as we nave
been the principal boncflrlarles. It Is
but Just that we should give active
support In return. France is weary.

must reply by spending our energy
and resources to the limit. Our young

to defend their country s nonur m

Our industrial leaders are co-operat-in-
with the B-overnment In every pos
sible way and without regard to per
sonal sacrifice. Labor leaders are

The Improvement in the demand for
export requirements has been marked.

vrpiniiniu were comparatively Ten,

.nd nubliii interest became
awakened. The first British war loan
had considerably less than a million
subscribers- ""he second, over a mil
lion, and the third. In 1917. had over
five and a quarter million subscribers.
In Germany with a population of 67.

700,000; the fourth, over 6.250,000,
ond the fifth, or last, S.800,000 par
tlrlnant!! From this experience. It
will hardly be safe for us to depend
upon too large a popular subscrip
tion on the first Issue. Later issues
may bring better results. In this
country subscriptions will have to
come chic-flv from the accumulated
savings of large business concerns,
from monled institutions and banks.
The people cannot bo expected to
draw very largely upon their deposits
In snvincs banks: nor is that dealr-

Congress is moving slowly and con
fusedly in its discussion of revenue
and other problems raised by the war.
The tax bill Is still unsettled, but the
tendency seems to be moderate some
of the extremely drastic measures at
first proposed! It certainly appears
unwise to put undue taxes upon ex
cess profits and thus cripple produc
tion and Impair investment power for
the new bond issue. Excess taxes
should be based upon average profits
and more normal conditions than ex
ist at present. Tne country is quick
ly adjusting it.self to new conditions,
and Industrial activity is belnar rapid
ly diverted to war purposes and to In
dustries, which will strengthen the
country for meeting the struggle Into
whlcn It has lately plunged. The food
outlook Is brightening somewhat.
Crops are likely to bo larger than at
one time anticipated. Railroad prob
lems are in a fair way of adjustment,
although the transportation lines are
still working under tho disadvantage
of low rates, heavy expenses, taxa
tion, etc. Public service corporations
are facing similar difficulties. Anoth
er element of encouragement Is the
prospect of improved relations be
tween capital and labor. The war has
already revealed the solidarity of in
terests between both, and will in ail
probability do much towards dimln
Ishinar the, misunderstanding and un
justifiable antagonism that has so
long existed between these elements.
Bo far as the war i concerned prog

making an advance of 128 points from
the low level of Tuesday and of nearly
$10 per bale from the low level of last

unsettled during the earlier part of
the week, owing to unfavorable news
from Russia and an expectation that
