"There Is more leal I'hrlstlaii faith In the congregation-. to-lay than In the preachers. And bellevo mo I'm Just the boy to tell you so. The church Is weak ened by the spirit of compromise In our preachers: they're afraid to preach straight gospel, and they don't believe In It either." The fact that moro women than men attend services Is nothing to get excited about, according to BHIy. "Of course tho minister sees more feathers than he docs whiskers and more false hair than ho does bald heads, but that is only to be expected. It doesn't prove that the church Is on the down grade and It's a dam sigh! tougher on the men than It Is on the church. Let me tell ou that men need the church a mighty lot more than the church needs tho men." The charge that the great war has proved the church Is a failure doesn't hold water. Billy said. "It Isn't the fail ure of Christianity, but the failure of a civilization that Is not Christian." Mr. Sunday will preach this morning a,- 10:30 for evcrybod. At 2:00 and 7:30 he will deliver his famous sermon for men only on "Chickens Come Home to Roost." Similar " Address Women. "Ma" Sunday.

FOSSILS PAY HONOR TO "OLIVER OPTIC" Journalists of Years Afro l'u veil Tablet to Greatest of Them All. 0(1 AT ANNUAL BANQUET I Congratulatory Messages Sent by Joseph us Daniels and .Tames M. Beck. The Fossils, gray bearded relics of the djys of the pamphleteers, of "Oliver Optic" and "Bustlcus," "Uumpty Dumply" and n hundred other equally well known to a generation gone, met last evening In tho green room of the McAIpln Hotel for their annual ban quet Nlxty strong. Their first motive was to get acquainted again after a year's parting one from the other; their second to unveil the bronze tablet which these amateur Journalists of the past have given to the memory of William T, Adams, known throughout the world as "Oliver Optic," the greatest of them all. The unveiling was carried out satis factorily and successfully. Charles U. Sherlock everybody there knew him better by his pen nime of "Salt Tolnt" drew back the banner that covered the tablet In the presence of Mrs. Sol Smith Russfll, daughter of "Oliver Optic" and widow of the famous come dian. It is 20 by 40 Inches In slue, with a bas relief of "Oliver Optic's" head at tho top. At tho bottom la portrayed an old time hand press, such as he and his fellow amateur Journalists ued In print ing their literature. The Inscription, mounted between the two. Is set appro propriatcly In a printer's chase. Tho only point now remaining for arbitration Is where the memorial shall he placed. Many of the members .favor setting It In front of the Sun Building, both because of the novelist's friendship for Charles A. Dana and bec.iu.-o the headquarters of the Fossils arc now In that building. Others want It put In the Boston Public Library and others in 1'hlladelphla. A committee has been appointed to choose among the favored sites and select the brst one Ln.st night's reunion really started many hours before the dinner, at the Tosells' headquarters.
