> i- '? ?" THE WAR. WE have now had seventeen months of this World War,during which time it has grown in gravity, in the area covered, and in the numbers of men fighting almost everywhere. The full year 1915, has been passed in these abnormal conditions. But, after the first shock of August, 1914, our Finance, Commerce, and Business settled down to see it out; and they have done, and are doing, this with remarkable courage, resource, and success. The Moratorium broke the first wild waves of the sudden storm, then the Courts (Emergency) Powers Act saved many from inevitable distress and disaster. In financial matters we have with- drawn our gold from circulation, and established a paper currency notes, always exchangeable and redeemable in gold at the Bank, which will, before long, reach the i tremendous total of One Hundred Millions Sterling. Not withstand- ing the vast loans floated so easily for the War, our Credit stands still unshaken throughout the World our Stock Exchange is open; our enormous monetary dealings continue. Owing to our command of all the oceans and seas, even our Export trade, though reduced at the beginning, is now growing, month by month, in spite of all our difficulties. We are now living in times the like of which we bad not exper- ienced for a hundred years, and then only in a much smaller way. Yet, even apart from the War trades, which, of coarse, are flourishing exceedingly, business has been brisker and more steady than anyone would have imagined possible seventeen months ago. We still carry on," and though by no means as usual," yet with a good heart, and a sure feeling that we shall yet pull through every commercial crisis. It is difficult to draw any deductions or learn any lessons from the official figures of failures we have here recorded. There can be no useful comparison between the Statistics for 1915 and those of 1914, because the latter year was made up of two parts, in one of which we had seven months of peaceful prosperity, while, in the other, there were five months When trade suffered from the shattering shock of the outbreak of War. Still, taking the United Kingdom, we find, Bankruptcies have again largely decreased, the tOltal for last year being 2,678, as against 3,165 for L9!4, which gives a falling-off of 487. In Deeds of Arrangement, also, there has been a similarly heavy decline, the number of 2,345 for 1814 coming down to 2,185 for 1915, thus showing a decrease of 159 cases.
BARMOUTH PROOF. And not only Bnrmouth proof, but proof which has stood the test of time. More convincing testimony would be impossible to find. On January 3rd, 1909, Mra E. Morris,. of "Riviere," Abermaw^Terrace,^opposite the harbour, Barmouth, said :—" I have been suffering, on and off, with pains in the back for about four years I have hardly known how to drag myself about. Many a time I have bad to sit down in the middle of my work to take n rest, while to attempt to stoop was simply unbearable. (c My feet and ankles swelled, and there was a puffiness under the eyes. I suffered dreadfully with headaches, and felt tired and drowsy. The kidney excretions were disordered, and caused me distress in obtaining relief. "I began to use Doan's backache kidney pills, and before I had taken the first box I felt ever so much better. As I went on with the medicine my back grew easier, and I could get abont my work without having to sit and rest. I now feet brighter and better in myself —a different person in fact. I shall always recommend Doan's pills. (Signed) E. Morris." On March 29 th, 1915-over six years later—Mrs Morris said :—" Doan's pills are splendid, for they cured me, and I have kept well and free from the trouble these six years since." Don't neglect your kidneys if you have any such unmistakable signs of -kidney and bladder trouble as puffy eyes, watery swellings in the ankles and limbs, urinary disorders, gravel, rheu- matism, aching back, pains in the loins and sides, irritability, nervousness, de- pression, and a constant languid feeling. Doan's backache kidney pills will help you by throwing out the kidney poisons in which so many fatal diseases have their beginning. Price 2/9 a box, of all dealers, or t ro a-i Foster McCiellao, Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. Don't ask for backache or kidney pills,-ask distinctly for Doan's I backache kidney pills, the same as Mrs Morris bad,
