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. adv.

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.

I II IKaBga—MMjgWWBMIiI 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.
