Trust Company costs no more than that of an indi

iiorc becoming the practice among leaders of in
dustry and finance to name a trust company as ex
ecutor and trustee.

jk Beware tuberculosis after In-
fluenza. No need to worry If
you take precautions in time.
Don't diagnose your own con-
dition. Have your docior exniu-
ine your lungs several times at
monthly intervals. Uulld up jour
strength with right living, good
food and plenty of fresh air.
,if Poii't waste money on patent
medicines advertised to cure tu
' herculosis.
ifr Become a fresh-air crank and
eujoy life.'
v Washington, D. C. (Special.) Ac-.-enrding
ta n report made to the United
States Public Health Service, the epi
jdemle of influenza in Spain has al
ready caused an increase in the preva
lence and deaths from pulmonary tu
berculosis. A similar association be
tween Influenza and tuberculosis was
recently made by Sir Arthur News
holme, the chief medical ofiicer of the
English public health service, in his
analysis of the tuberculosis death rata
in England.
In order that the people of the Unit
ed States may profit by the experience
of other countries Surgeon General
Kupert Blue of the United States Pub
lic Health Service hus just issued a
.warning emphasizing the need of spe
cial precautions at the present time.
"Experience seems to indicate," Bays
the Surgeon General, "that persons,
whose resistance has been weakened
by an attack of influenza are peculiar
ly susceptible to tuberculosis. : With
millions of its people recently affected
with influenza this country now of
fers conditions favoring the spread of
One Million Consumptives In the
- United States.
: "Then you consider this a serious
menace?" was" asked. "In my opinion
it is, though I hasten to add it is dis
tinctly one against which the people
can guard. So far as one can estimate
there are at present about one million
cases of tuberculosis in the United
States. There Is unfortunately in
complete census available to show ex
actly the number of tuberculosis per
sons in each state despite the fact that
most of the states have made the dis
ease reportable. In New York city,
where reporting has been in force for
mnr.y years, over 3,1,000 eases of tu
berculosis are registered with the De
partment of Health. Those frmiltar
with the situation believe that the ad
dition of unrecognized and unreported
coses would make the number nearer
B0.000. The very careful health sur
vey conducted during the past two i
years in Framinghnm, Mass., revealed
200 cases of tuberculosis in a popula
tion of approximately l.l.OOO. If thess
proportions hold true for the United
States as a whole they would indicate
that about one In every hundred per
sons is tuberculous. Each of th.?se
constitutes a source of danger to be
guarded against."
What to Do.
In his statement to the public Sur
geon General ttlue points out bv,r
those who have bad influenza should
protect themselves a.iiiinst tuberculo
sis. "All who have recovered from In
fluenza." snys the Surgeon Genra!,
"should have their Itints carefully ex
amined by a competent physfeian. In
fact. It I desirable to have several ex
aminations made a month apart. Such
examinations cannot be made through
the clothing nor can they be carried
out In two or three minutes. If the
lungs are found to be free from tuber
culosis every effort should be made to
keep them so. This can be done by
right living, good food and plenty of
fresh air."
Danger Signs.
The Surgeon General wnrned espe
cially against certain d.mrr sbM;?.

The Electrical Voice
IT is a very delicate electrical current that carries the
sound waves produced by the human voice over the
telephone wires.
It reproduces these sound .waves in their minutest
detail and travels with almost the speed of li&ht.'
Sound waves travel through l.'e air at the rate of
1,160 feet a second. Carried through the air at that
rate it would take four hours for the human voice Lo
cross the continent.
It takes one-fifteenth of a second for the voice to trav
el from New York to San Francisco, 3,400 miles over
the transcontinental line of the Bell system, 2o that it
may be said that telephonic communication from coast
to coast is practically instantaneous.
