THE EASIEST WAY I
Tl) END DANDRUFF
Stoa Failing Hair and Itching Scalp.
There is one sure way that never!,
fails to remove dandruff completely
and tiiat is to dissolve it. This destroys i
it entirely. To do this, just get about
four ounces of plain, ordinary liquid
irvoii; apply it at night when retiring;,
use enough to moisten the scalp and-' '
rub it in gently with the finger tips. i .
Bv morning most, if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and tnree or!]
four more applications will completely j
dissolve and entirely destroy, every j i
single sign and trace of it, no matter!
how much dandruff you may have.
Von will find, too. that all itching I
and digging of the scalp will stop in- '
stantly, and your hair will be fluffy,;'
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and j
look and feel a hundred times better. 't
If you want to keep your hair look
ing rich, do by all means get rid of!
dandruff, for nothing destroys the'
hair so quickly. It not only starves the;
nair and makes it fall out, but it makes i
it stringy, straggly, dull, dry, brittle,'
and lifeless, and everybody notices it.i
You can get liquid arvon at any drug j j
store. It is inexpensive, and four ounces |
is all you will need. This simple rem
edy has never been known to fail.

HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 23, 1914.
SEVERAL BLAST FURNACES
111 WEST HAVE BLOWN OUT
Still Lower Bate'of Operations Is in
Prospect Since Shipments on Con
tracts Have Been for Some Timo
in Excess of New Orders
•New York, Oct. 23.—The "Iron
Age" says that with mill operations
a prating 50 per cent. or less and with
'u> tangible evidence tiiat a better scale
of buying is near at,hand, sentiment in
the steel trade is not improved. The
'belief that October would show the low
i oint both in operations and new buy
ing was expressed in high quarters as
the month came in, but it is as now only
a hope. The small buying waves of
January February and June -July
them nth came in, but it. Os now only
a hope. Thes mall buying waves of
January February and Junne-July
seemed to indicate that the late fall
would bring another, but the war has
ujiset. all such calculations.
Several blast furnaces in the Central
West have blown out in October, while
others axe scheduled to stop, and it is
reported from Pittsburgh that a large
steel plant in that district will close
down before the end of the month. It
is true that in some lines the amount
of business booked has not shown a
progressive falling oil' in October, but
shipments on contracts have been for
some time so much in excess of new or
ders that a still loner rate of opera
tions is in prospect.
In contrast with the monotonous re
iteration of depressed conditions in iron
and steel are the reports from the ma
chine tool trade. There the war has
brought a large business from foreign
governments and fiom manufacturers
at home who needed new equipment to
get out foreign war orders on time.
Accumulated stocks of tools have been
taken up in this movement, and makers
have felt warranted in a number.of
cases in increasing working forces,
which in August and September were
down to the smallest in months.
Thus far the foundry trade lias felt
only a slight effect from the improve
ment in machine tools, as activity in
the latter industry would compensate in
'but small degree for the slack demand
for railroad and agricultural castings.
v iucago advices are that some better
nient in foundry operations in that dis
trict, from which reports for a number
of weeks have been particularly
gloomy, is indicated by increased in
quiry tor coke.
Prices for foundry iron are lower
even without the strain of any consid
erable inquiry, $12.75 being currently
doue on No. 2 foundry iron at Ohio
furnaces, while at Buffalo $12.25 is
reported. Very little consideration has
been given to buying for 1915 deliv
ery. Indications are that a good deal
of iron bought for 1914 will not be
melted before Fcbruarv.
Light is thrown on the ferro-manga
nese situation by British export statis
tics, which show 13,000 tons shipped
to the United States in that mouth, or
considerably more than the average of
importations from all countries in 1913.
Great Britain imported 50,000 tons of
manganese ores last month, against 37,
000 tons in September, 191.3. The em
bargo laid by the Indian government
on manganese ore shipments to the
United States means that British pro
ducers of ferro-manganese will have
their needs fully supplied from India,
while thf. closing of the Dardanelles
cuts off -pifßbcnts from the Caucasus.

THE NETHERLANDS RANKS
HIGH IN IIS COMMERCE
Little Kingdom's Large Foreign Trade
Attributed In Part to Favorable
Location of Country For Transship
ment of Goods
Washington, I). (J., o>'t. 23.—'The
Netherlands, with a population of 6,-
144,000 and au area of 13,171 square
miles, has a foreign trade of nearly
three billion dollars. According to re
vised figures for 1912, published in
" Commercial Kelations ot the United
states," imports were valued at sl,-
452,4-58,168, a gain of $112,49 1,200
over 1911. while exports were $1,251,-
472,027. an inrcase of $153,052,446
over the preceding year. Though the
-Netherlands is a verv small country,
slightly larger than the State of Mary
land, it ranks among the leading com
mercial natious of the world. Its im
ports are 90 per cent, as much as those
of France with a population six times
as yreat, and its exports are about 60
per cent, as much as those of Germany
with a population ten times as great.
This unusually large commerce of
the Netherlands is explained by the
Bureau of Foreign and DomosfTc Com
merce, Department of Commerce, as be
nig due (1) To the favorable location
of that country for the transshipment
of goods destined for, or originating in,
Euiopeau countries and sections dis
taut, from the seaboard. (2) To the fact
that in the Dutch statistics foreign
goods destined ultimately to some other
country are not rigorously excluded
from special trade statements; hence it
frequently happens that the same goods
appear both in the import and export
accounts, unduly swelling each in com
parison with the commercial returns
of most other European countries. (3)
To the peculiar system of valuations
tor trade statistics in practice in the
Netherlands. Kxcept in cases where im
ported merchandise is dutiable and a
statement of declared values is neces
sary for the ascertainment of revenues
(amounting to about 10 per cent, of
the total imports) all values in its
trade accounts are " official," that is,
fixed bv a commission and frequently
varying from actual values. As many
articles are given the same unit valu
ation as that fixed a half century ago,
they do not reflect the lower price
levels which have meantime been es
tablished. To this extent the trade
figures of the Netherlands are abnor
mal and uot comparable with those of
other leading nations.
Ten per cent, of the imports into the
Netherlands are stated as being from
the I'nited States, compared with 29
per cent, from Germany, 14 per cent,
from the Dutch Kast Indies, about 10
per cent, each from Belgium and the
United Kingdom, 8 per cent, from Rus
sia, and nearly 3 per cent, from Argen
tina. The Netherlands sends direct to
this country only 4.4 per cent, of its
exports, compared with 5 per cent, to
the Dutch Kast Indies, 12 per cent, to
Belgium, 20 per cent, to the United
Kingdom, and 50 per cent, to Germany.
Present conditions in Europe have, of
course, greatly modified the extent and
distribution of Dutch trade as well as
that of other countries. Thus exports
to the Netherlands from the I'nited
States dropped from $13,714,345 in
August, 1913, to $2,524,488 in Aujjjlist
last; while our imports therefrom in
the same period increased from $2,-
605,396 to $3,446,042.
Four great groups of articles supply
one-half the total value of Dutch im
ports. These are breadstuffs (chiefly ]
I wheat and rice), 263 million dollars;
I iron and steel manufactures, 194 mil- 1
I lion; chemicals, drugs and dyes, 172
miUion, and copper ore, ingots and
11 bars, 63 million. (Quinine alone arnount-
I ed to $134,387,000, of which $103,-
j 562,000 worth was exported. East lu
i dian products figure largely in the ini
! | ports into the Netherlands, which in
. j elude, in addition to those already
noted, coal, 50 million dollars; timber,
j 45 million; stone paving blocks, 33
; million; coffee, 21 million; hides and
, skins, 17 million; copra, 15 million;
J tin, wool and cocoa beans, each about
j 10 million; hemp, 8 million, and tea
; and tobacco, each 5 million dollars,
glassware, rubber goods, haberdashery,
-1 scientific instruments and many other
i j manufactures, are also imported in con-
I ' siderable quantities.
. j The chief direct importations from
i the United States are cop|>er, 30 mil
. | lion dollars: wheat and flour, 30 mil-
I i lion; timber, 1,1 million, and flaxseed
, | oil cake and meal, lard, petroleum, iron
and steel goods, oats, turpentine, cot
i tonseed oil and calcium acetate. The
. j Netherlands sends to the United States
. j principally diamonds, tobacco, hides
;! and skins, cocoa, coffee, cinchona,
,! spices, pickled herring, bulbs and
I i plants, tin, rice, and seeds.
