OVER THE COUNTRY
An important high pressure area
covers the northern plains region, and
the pressure is moderately high in the
Atlantic states and off the middle Pa
cific coast. Elsewhere the pressure is
low, the principal disturbance being
central in southern Utah. Precipita
tion has occurred over an irregular belt
extending from the north Pacific coast
to New York and Pennsylvania and lo
cally at New Orleans. There has been
a decided fall in temperature in the
plains and northern Rocky mountain
states and the upper Mississippi valley,
amounting to more than 40 degrees in
Wyoming. Zero weather extends
southward into Kansas.

Tell of His Good Work as
President of Anti-Tuber
Seattle, Dec. 1*. 1916.—An address,
signed by 200 business men, was pre- ;
sented to H. C. Henry by a committee
from the Anti-Tuberculosis League of
King county Saturday morning ex
pressing apreciatlon for his services
as president of the organization for six
The committee consisted of E. F.
Blaine. J. F. Douglas, D. E. Frederick, I
Frank McDermott, H. W. Treat, Dr.
B. J. Lloyd, Dr. J. E. Crichton, Dr. Park
Weed Willis and William K. McKibben.
Mr. Treat, and Dr. Willis were spokes
men for the committee.
The address satd in part:
"Your course of conduct, thoughtful
and considerate, while yet consistent
ly firm, lias endeured you to us all.
Your presence in the counsels of the
league always means hope and cheer,
both to the helpless and to us who
have shared with you in their care.
When you first came among us we
knew you as the successful man of
business, the builder and financier. As
we learned to know you, you are the |
man touched with the needs of your ]
fellows. Your wealth is a means to
an end—its use the alleviation of dis- ,
tress. Your ear is keen to the cry of
suffering, your feet do not falter In the
path of duty. Men absorbed in great
business responsibilities, as we know,
too often pay scant heed in a per
sonal way to the unfortunates about
them. But you go in person to their
aid. These things, with other charac
teristics which to the public are more
conspicuous, rank you pre-eminent
among your fellows.
"Wealth, power, skill, material suc
cess, intellectuality—-everything must
give way to goodness, and it is the
man who loves and heals his fellow
man who shall be exalted above
