rized, because originally man was an active wild animal. He was often in danger from other animals and would have to run long distances. For his safety it was necessary to have an organ in which waste matter could be stored. There was, however, little danger of clogging of the colon, because continuous natural exercise kept man's colon from being lazy. Its muscles functioned normally.

The large intestine which Nature fashioned was perfectly adapted to our former life. It is not adapted to modern life. Man is no longer a wild animal. He is easily the most inactive large animal on earth. He is a sitting animal. He almost never walks when he can ride. The first thing physicians tell him usually, when he is in a run-down condition, is to "get out in the air and exercise." But many of us are too busy to exercise; and still more of us, when we exercise, exercise the wrong muscles. The most important, the most vital muscles to exercise are those of the large intestine, for the simple reason that those muscles cause more trouble by their laziness than all the other lazy muscles put together.

Man's Inventive Power to the Rescue

"Colon Cleanliness," after describing minutely the problem of the large intestine—as discussed by many scientific authorities—deals with the invention that is now used to combat the laziness of the large intestine. This is a simple contrivance which does nothing else but exercise the large intestine. It wakes the large intestine to its job. It is called the Kolon Motor, and is a very simple device, since it can be operated by a child. Observations of its effect in hospitals and by private physicians show remarkable results. One merely puts the Kolon Motor on a door or wall, leans up against it and turns the handle for a few minutes. The face rotates with a scientific waving motion, which immediately stimulates the colon and causes proper functioning. Two or three minutes a day is all that is required.

In this simple fashion the colon muscles are exercised as much as they would be in taking a brisk walk of two or three miles. In medical circles it is recognized that this

invention meets the problem of colon l&n ness in a logical, effective fashion. It iwithout the slightest harmful results, suci as follow the taking of drugs, which usuall only have the effect of making the large intestine more lazy.

at $700 per $100 share. Yet less than three-fourths of the new preferred stock, with its prior lien on earnings, was taken by the shareholders. The country's financial situation was that of the merchant who had been doing an unprecedentedly large and profitable business, but had taken notes from his strongest customers instead of cash, and has financed his own cash expenditure at the banks.

IN the course of time the war will end. and the huge mass of securities placed here by the Allied governments to meet their American purchases will remain in our hands. A "debtor nation" almost continuously since the War of the Revolution, the United The United States will suddenly have be- Great3Credcome a creditor nation on a jt0r Nation scale of very unusual magnitude. Such prospective reversal of position bears on the question whether the American financial outlook is good or bad. and that requires some close examination of the factors in the situation. Obscure and troublesome, even to the point of economic strain, our economic situation may be in the immediate future. But how about the aftermath of war?

Ever since the war began the German statesmen and professors have stubbornly insisted that the paramount economic advantage was possessed by Germany through having bought its war materials at home, raised its war loans at home, and therefore having as a government incurred obligations only to its own citizens. Export and import trade, it was true, had both virtually ceased. If her weaker allies have relied on Germany for war material, Germany has relied on them for food.

But from the larger economic point of view, so the argument proceeded, Germany will emerge from war free from indebtedness except what is owed in Germany; and whatever that indebtedness may be, the obligations representing it will remain a part of the national wealth. On the other hand, the Entente Allies in Europe will come out of the conflict heavily indebted to the outside world, and largely through obligations which must at an early date be refunded or redeemed—in either case requiring surrender of home resources and capital for the benefit of a foreign nation. Hence of necessity, so concludes Berlin,
