They seem to huve lost their nerve, while other manufacturers have taken stock ot resources, pulled their forces together and girded them- selves up to the point of getting every possible cent's worth of business that is to 'be had.

In the eastern theatre of look; war it as ii the Russians are making .ly for" a movement, hitherto de- layel towards Berlin. The reports from Petro'grad point to success against die German .forces. In this field ol operations is the Kaiser who, no doubt, trusts that his imperial presence will cause renewed exertions by his troops, to withstand the ad- vance of the menacing foe. REASONS WHY THE WAR. WILL NOT BE PROLONGED Arnold White, one of England's foremost thinkers, writing, in the Lon- don Sunday Chronicle, gives it as his opinion that the present war will not foe of long duration. In this prognosis true, he is at variance with the views of Lord and with those expressed 'bv" Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, but the reasons the writer "brings forward for sus- taining his forecast are, when con- sidered, soucd and rational. The end, so far as Germany is con- cerned, cannot be long delayed by the results produced by, as Arnold White expresses it, "the silent pressure of our sea-power" drawing an economic ring round Germany. The staple ar- ticles'required not only for the eon- sumption of lier people, but for fur- nishing the munitions of war will be cat off. 'Germany wants wheat, says Mr. White, and the Russian supply of ninety million quarters of two hun- dred and eighty pounds will be denied to Germany and Austria, and there will be an agony of apprehension aa r-to what will happen when the stored wheat is consumed. Barley procurable by Germany from outside, though thirty-three millions of her people (half the population practic- ally) food. from Russia will be Wool and cotton will not reach Germany's factories. Beet sugar Germany can grow, but rice, coffee, tea, and cocoa he denied her people. ..Aluminum, necessary for aeroplanes and dirig- ibles, will be cut off, likewise tin, cop- per. lead, nitrates and zinc needed tQT the manufacture of war material. The enormous expenditure .of am- munition BO far outlayed, continues White, has created something like a copper famine in Germany. Fur- thermore that country will be debar- red from petroleum obtained from, Galicia and Russia for her motor lor- ries and care, nor is it likely that she can obtain a supply from Koumania, the only other available source. For these reasons Arnold Yttiite states he thinks the war will not be prolonged. are dependent upon imported Maize from Argentine, and rye "BUSINESS AS USUAL" In these days of storm and stress our Empire has employed as its mot- to "Business as usual." From end to end of our vast territories the slogan i has .been passed along. It is a call to Uie business element among us to hold-on to what we have and, with the assurance that opportunities af r. forded by the war will fructify, by so doing to exemplify the truth th attest. To the importance of carrying out the principles of the motto wit! sincerity Messrs. J. 1. (Sibbons the well-known advertising agcn.t have prepared and bad published in the Toronto Globe ft memorandum la all business men and firms other tilings the following the 'benefits tthicli Kill money this year as they did last but if they can keep their organiza- tion together, their goodwill and standing at the end of the present crisis will be far greater than the mere matter of profit secured would indicate. And eventually their pro- fits will be much greater, because they will be deriving profits from an increased percentage of the extra business secured now. That is to say, whereas in normal times they only received profits on lfl% of the total business done, Uie fact of three con- cerns dropping out of business will give them profits on about 13% 01 the total business to be done when con- i are again normal."
