MOVEMENT OE CARS The following Is un extract from the Business Review", official month'y bulletin of the Federal Reserve Hank of Cleveland: The summer season Is testing the staplng qualities of our present prosperity ;it Is (hiding them not wanting. The railroads are carrying revenue freight at a rate of more than 1,009,000 »rs a week -a record breaking movement. The demand of the consumers Is back of this. In l'.i.a shelves and store rooms were piled with high- priced Inventories; today goods are being used. A slackening in various lines ot Industry und trade is apparent, but portions of this may rightfully he attributed to seasonal Influences. Seldom If ever has July been a really active business mouth. Business Is Inclined to follow in the footsteps of this of us who want to take u breathing spell at this time of the year. Recent tendencies which have appeared on the surface, however, havw not eliminated the fact that the underlying factors for good business ure still present. Tbe unsettled farming situation is bringing to light the definite need for a program of more balanced farming and orderly marketing. Loans are considerably larger than they were ut this time a year ago. It Is the opinion of conservative authorities in this District that such a condition is to be expected at this season of the year and especially so since such a remarkable industrial growth has been shown during the past twelve months. For several months the value of our Imports has exceeded the value of our exports. This situation naturally embraces obstructive features but there are other angles. The reversal of our trade balance is not due to shrinkage In exports, but rather to Increases in Imports. Records show that the imports of raw and semi-raw materials for further manufacture In this country are responsible for much of the increase. Apparently our manufacturers have found It necessury to Import large quantities of raw materials to care for the recent increased volumne of manufactured goods. Such adverse trade balances us those existing at the present time have been experienced before in the history of our country, und when the proper time arrived they automatically corrected themselves. A similar readjustment is not unexpected hy the business wojjd. A number of residents of Pearl si reel were present at the regular meeting of the village council Tuesday evening In regard to B sidewalk and sanitary sewer on that street,- This matter was brought up before the count il concerning the same subject some time ago but SO action was taken, because of the tact that the residents were divided on the subject. Tuesday evening found them the sain.' way. still divided. The council spent a great deal of time in discus •dug the matter with those residents pros, it and when It came to u decision. th>' council was also divided. A- a matter of usual occurance the patter was lefl OB tha table for further discussion. After the old business was taken care of, the council Issued an order to have all of the sewers In town Mushed, within the near future. tirade ordinances were passed for sidewalks on the north side of Mill avenue and the west side of North Main street. STIWALDS SHOES LOSE TO SANDUSKIANS, 11-9. On Sunday afternoon the Stlwald Shoes played the Durant Motors of Sandusky at Brandt's Park, this city.
