The calling for sueh a conference,
it was pointed out, would of neces

THEORY EXPUINED
|
Restoration Will Be Fast Within
| Naxt 25 Years, Says Dr.
Henry J. Allen.
CHICAGO. Oct. 28.?A theory of
life after desth was demonstrated
by Dr. Henry J. Allen before the
Anthropological 8ociety.
Dr. Alien cited cases where per
sons were revived after life hsd
ceased. He told of reviving a small
child after she had fallen from the
roof of a house.
His explanation of this was that
If "a body organ is not worn out,
but whose functioning is interrupt
ed by sorne exterior cause, that
.organ can be made to function
agallf, within a reasonable time."
[ "Tne principle of our existence."
^Dr. Allen said, "is that we learn
how to concentrate and to relax
completely at the right time."
He said the email child was re
vived because pressure was put on
her head. The tenfcion was released
he s*id, and the heart allowed to
relax and to react. This brought
about a return of vim activity, he
I assarted.
"Ws don't pretend we can re
store life," h* said. "But we know
that Within twenty-five years the
science which Is known as vita
mode Will be so perfected as to be
able to do so.
"Bxperlmenters already have
revived dead doga to the extent
of making them walk. But thev
ware totally lacking In mental
power, ? We have done that and
ft open* the way for further won-1
dars." ' T7 ? |

Tabernacle.
LYNCHBURG. V*.. Oct. Fol
lowing the close of Billy Sunday'#
six w?clta* umpilfn here. WO men
turned out Monday night for the for
mation of a Billy Sunday Club.
The organisation here la to be
along somewhat different lines from
Home of the clubs, for there is to be
no limit upon the membership, save
that It will be for men who are
Christians and promise to be faith
ful to some evangelical church. *i.
Is to be divided Into smallsr organ-!
tsatlons so that each smaller unit
will have some older Christian oeas
It to watch over the y?ungar man
In an effort to keep them faithful in
their church attendance. These
smaller unlU. too. will from time
to time be asked to attend evangel
istic meetings, not to preach but
to five personal testimony in a
brief speech. These campalgnaw
to be carried Into the suburbs of
the city and out Into neighboring
counties and towns, where such a
work Is asked for In the future.
The plan for the Sunday club f#r
the present Is for weekly meetings
each ? Sunday afternoon at some
church in the city and It Is not Im
probable that later these meetings
will be thrown open to women as
well M to men. .
While the Sunday club Is at work
perfecting 1U organization far evan
gelistic work, the women In ths Vir
ginia Asher clubs are making tMir
plans for keeping up Bible study
classes and community prayer serv
ices In cottages, which wer?? bald
during the campaign.
The Sunday club Is to take over
the shop prayer meeting wor*.
which has been done for some years
by ministers. Nineteen such meet
ings were manned during this week
by men who volunteered for ths
service at the organisation meeting
Monday nl#ht.
In a few days hundreds of local
churchmen will be wearing a Sunday
club button, for a committee has
been named by the club to get up a
design and have It worked out for
use on one's coat lapel.
The officers of the club have
worked hard this week to get plans
in "haps for the first evangelistic
meeting of the club to be held to
morrow afternoon. The men are to
assemble at the Y. M. C. A.., but If
It Is found that the crowd Is too
large then the meeting will adjourn
to Centenary Methodist Church.

SB OF WIFE
When He Sat in Pew and
Laughed at Her She
Sued for Divorce.
SAX FRANCISCO. Oct. 21.?Like
the proverbial prophet. Mrs. Cleo B.
Mlntun, says she la honored as a|
mezso-eoprano when she Is away |
from home, but when she warbles
at the family baby grand there's
never a salvo of applause.
When one has achieved a reputa
tion as a vocalist lack of apprecia
tion at home Is the most refined
cruelty, Mrs. Mlntun alleged In Su
perior Judge J. 3. Van Neatrand's
department during ths hearing of
her divorce suit agalnat Ouy F. Mln
lUNot only did Mlntun, who la an.
expert accountant, fall to encourage
his wife's vocal efforts by praise or
constructive criticism, but he actual
ly laughed at her. That In Itself
wouldn't have been so bad If he had
not attended churches where she
sang In the choir and derided her
from his pew, much to her discom
fiture. That was In Kansas City in
1921. Mrs. Mlntun alleged.
But there were other phases of
her husband's cruelty, she charged.
In 1?17 at a beach party at Lag""*
Bench. Mlntun cursed not only his
wife but his mother-in-law and her
sister, she alleges, and refused to
make any explanation when Mrs.
Mlntun detected him embracing
other women.
Mrs. Mlntun was granted an in
terlocutory decree of divorce, witn
the custody of her flve-yearold
daughter, Roma.
