The first step in this direction was the recent estab lishment on a tract of 143 acres at El Paso, Texas, of the Southern Bap tist Sanatorium, where $500,000 from the 75 Million Campaign has been in vested and where $500,000 more will be placed by the end of the Campaign period. The institution is located at an altitude of 4,500 feet on the side of Mt. Franklin and commands an excel lent view of the mountains of New Mexico, Western Texas and Old Mexico, whose border is only six miles distant. Dr. H. F. Vermillion is super lnt endent. Included in this plant at present are the administration building, the newly completed women’s infirmary and men’s infirmary, a heating and re frigerating plant and the superintend ent’s quarters. Provided for in the building plans for the future are a medical and educational building, nurses’ home. children's building, dormitories for convalescent patients, an occupational and vocational therapy building, chapel, laundry and minor structures. 150 People Die Dally.

London.—From Nairobi, East Africa, says u writer in the London Dally j Mall, conies a thrilling story of the | death of a transport agent named ■ Klopper, who, pinned down by a lioness lie hud wounded, made a desperate bid for victory by putting both hands into the animal’s mouth and gripping its tongue. Africa Is a paradise for the lion hunter and the literuture of the chase iis almost endless. Not all lion hunters are strictly truthful, however. “For instance, in a remote African village,” says the writer, “I once came across a deeply tanned prospector hunter, who swore that his favorite method of hunting lions was to get the animals to sneeze themselves to death. “'lt Is quite simple,’ lie said. ‘ln lion country you build a little arch of stone, Just big enough to allow the lion to enter with comfort.

The death rate from tuber culosis is 14.2% higher in the South than in the Nation as a whole. One reason for the exceedingly high death rate in the South is the great preva lence of the plague among the negroes v:ho are especially susceptible to tuber culosis, tho death rate among them being three and one-half times that among the whites. But inasmuch as the negroes will doubtless continue to be intimately associated with the . whites In domestic and other work in , the future, the whites will never be safe from infection until the negroes, • as well as the whites, have been freed | from the plague. | It has been estimated that the to tal economic loss from the ravages I of tuberculosis in the South is $175,- j 000,000 a year, and in projecting their | warfare against the plague the Bap -1 ! tlsts hope to greatly reduce this loss, 1 ; as well as to save the life and promote the health and general efficiency of the whole people. ; Would Educate th People. * In addition to providing treatment ! for persons who have already oon- " ‘Then you go out and shoot n zebra or some other toothsome ereature from the lion's point of view.

A party of men trekking in Rhodesia In an ox wagon heard a commotion one night among their tethered oxen, and rushing toward the spot pumped about a dozen shots Into the heaving mass from a distance of, say, forty yards. The mass diminished, and they ad vanced to find one of their' oxen hor ribly mauled by lions. They “dosed” the corpse with strych nine and retired to their camp. They heard the lions busy nt the carcass all night, and In the morning they found that the dead ox had practically disappeared, hut lying near the spot were five full grown ilons —two males and three females —ull poisoned. That was a very considerable bag got by Illegitimate means, but here is the true story of a better bag got legitimately. Incidentally, it is a very interesting example of sportsmen's luck: When the late President Roosevelt and his son ICermlt went to British Bast Africa, in 1909, they were ac companied on their hunting trip by the late F.

Other phases of the educa tional program include the training of workers inside the sanatorium and occupational and vocational work for patients. The extension department is widely disseminating literature on how to combat tuberculosis. An en dowment fund that is being created • for the institution will make possible a much larger circulation of literature and also enable the institution to take care of indigent patients. The sanatorium is at present seek ing to devise special plans whereby i it can serve the negroes of the South in combating tuberculosis. It is felt , that the negroes' inability to help themselves in the matter entitles them i to this conside&rtkm and that this assistance should bo given, further . more, as a means of self-protection on the part of the whites. Other Phases of Baptist Work. In addition to the Tuberculosis i Sanatorium, Southern Baptists have a string of seventeen regular hospitals , in operation and seven others under course of construction. This hospital property is valued at approximately | $7,000,000 and those institutions last . year t rooted 46,000 patients many of them boing charity cases.
