An Interesting experiment for tbs
.purpose of creating immunity against
tuberculosis Is being tried in Pitts
burgh undsr tbs direction of the Tub
erculosis League of that city. Dr.
William Charles White, Medical Direct
or of the League, says it will probably
take ten years '.before definite results
of the work will be appreciated. The
experiment is being conducted on the
theory that muoh, if not all, tuber
culosis Infection begins in childhood.
In view of this fact, the League is aim
ing to supervise the growth of. every
baby born for the next ten years In
the South Side district of Pittsburgh.
The babies and their mothers will be
taken lu charge at the birth of the in
fant, and everything possible will be
done to Increase the resisting power of
the child to disease and to make It
thereby immune to. tuberculous in

The last will and testament of thu
eminent financier has received eulogis
tic comments from many of the clergy
and n large proportion of the metro
politan press. To the Chief the will is
remarkable for its hypocritical pre
tense of Christian piety. It com
mences with n paragraph, In which
the man who devoted a life to, public
rapine and plunder commends his soul
to his Maker as h white and redeemed
thing, made so bj thu hltfod of Jesus;
but, with uncounted millions to dis
pose of, he makes no mention of, or
provision for, the people wltl whom
Jesus identified himself. It is the
most, tin Christian, irreligious docu
ment, in its want of actual charity,
ever published as thu last .solemn act
of a professedly Christian niillioiiiiiio.

says iu his heart, what ever he muy

How shall his spirit meet that of the
first great American fiuaucler, Robert
Morris, the patriot who financed the
revolutionary struggle, who equipped
Washington's army at bis own expense
for the march against Cornwallis at
Yorktown, and died iu a debtor's

Oirard founded a great Institution
where every American youth might
obtain the highest education he de
sired. He accompanied his sneer at
the false pretenses of others with the
most generous benefaction to his race.
Morgan professes the holiest faith
with his lips and denies Jesus and
humanity with his deed.
With what assurance shall Morgan
come Into the presence of the great
New Yorker, whose wealth was the due
reward of industrial enterprise and
genius, .Peter Cooper?
Cooper's name and memory are
among the highest inspirations of his
city, and, while his noble benefactions
endure, tbey will aid, instruct and
stimulate the youth of America to
lofty endeavor and generous living.
The name of Morgan will be a by-word
and a hissing.
