BILLY SUNDAY BRAND
None of His Converts Art' Wuntcil for
They Do Not Stand
Those St. Joseph enthusiasts who
were so anxious to have Billy Sunday,
the mountebank preacher, come here
and leform this city when he was
making his dollaresque attacks on
Satan a few cars ago, can now feel
satisfied that they failed, for the peo
ple whom he "converted" were not 5f
a class that has proved to be of much
value to the churches to whom they
were assigned after Billy had put his
"seal" on them. In a sermon ut Oma

The real surprise Is that the Re

the reason why they did not do o
