The father then offered to pay a large

PREACH GOSPEL OF HEALTH
Plan to Have One Sermon on Sunday,
April 24, Devoted to Scourge
Following campaigns against con
sumption that have been carried on In
the churches of hundreds of cities, and
sermons on tuberculosis that have
been preached before thousands of con
gregations during the past year, a
movement has been started by the Na
tional Association for the Study and
Prevention of Tuberculosis to estab
lish a iermanent tuberculosis Sunday,
on which it Is hoped that every one of
the .'13.000.000 church-goers in the
United States will bear the gospel of
health. This year the Sunday selected
Is April 24. It Is planned that on April
24 tuberculosis senflbns shall be
preached in all the churches of the
country. Literature will be distributed
to members of the congregations, and
In every way an effort will be made to
teach that tuberculosis Is a dangerous
disease and that it can be prevented

senators will speak on the railroad

some senators predict that much

An effort will be made by the house

The postal bank bill. In view of the
fact that hearings have been ordered
by the house committee on postof
flees and post roads, will not reach
the floor for several weeks, and In
all probability not until the present
session draws near a close.
Regardless of the fact thai the pos
tal bank bill, the anti-injunction meas

ministration conservative measures
are all a part of the administration
program, there is not apparent any

the railroad bill lags to the extent
that has been freely predicted, it may
require a presidential message to in

the executive program.

many matters that will call out sharp
debate, and there is a disposition on

some of them go by the board.
