Teetotalism Among Old World
Abstinence of Sovereigns Traced to Moth
The announcement by the pres?
that the president of the United
States and members of his cabinet
are opposed to the use of liquor at
the White House, or at social func
tions, has occasioned much discus
sion, favorable and otherwise, in
both the American and foreign pa
pers. In an article entitled, "Tee
totalers Now on Many Thrones,"
by an "Ex Attache," recently pub
lished in the Chicago Tribune, an
interesting list of sovereigns who
are abstainers is given. According
to this writer teetotalism io the rule
rather than the exception among
the rulers of the old world. He
says that ''Alfonso XIII of Spain
and his mother. Queen Christina,
are both total abstainers. So, too,
is Victor Emmanuel III of Italy,
as Queen Wilhelmina of Holland,
and her mother, Queen Emma, the
two queens of Sweden and King
Gustavus Adolphus, Czar Ferdinand
of Bulgaria, and George V". of Great
"In Sweden." explains the writer,
"the present king and his consort
have undoubtedly been influenced
in becoming teetotalers by his moth
er, the dowager Queen Sophia,
who for over fortv years has been
the most powerful supporter and
advocate of the temp?rance move
ment in Scandinavia."

childhood and it srot worse after I
had the measles about twelve years
ago. I suffered from acute pains
throughout my body and I had
much trouble from weakness from
the kidneys and bladder. Doan's

up over the shoulder to the collar.
This affords an excellent opportunity

three to four inches in width. The
effect is very much like that of the
popular raglan sleeve. The jnder
Bleeve may be of tucked net, chiffon
or ninon. The long ?ines of lace from
collar to waist lend the kimono effect
without any of the looseness of the
kinomo sleeve under the arm.
This sleeve is generally buttoned
from the wrist to thu elbow with tiny
lace or silk burtons, for the glove
like snugness of the sleeve demands
an opening. The ruffle at the wrist
ts often extended to the elbow, some
times on the outer seam, igain on

however, it must be fresh, ?nd un

A Decision of U S. Supreme
Court Concerning Overdrafts.
The following is a decision that has
been handed down by the United States
?supreme court concerning the ovei
checking of an account with a bank:
"A usage to allow customers to over
draw and have their checks and notes
charged up without present funds in
the bank, stripped of all technical dis
guise, the usage and practice, attempt
ed to be sanctioned, is a usage and
practice tomissapply the funds of the
bank; and to connive at the withdrawal
of same, without any security, in fa
vor of certain privileged persons. Such
a usage and practice is Surely a mani
fest departure from the duty, both of.
the directors and cashier, and cannot
receive any countenance in a court of
justice. It could not be supported by
any vote of the directors, however for
mal; and therefore, whenever done by
the cashier, is at his own peril and upon
the responsibility of himself and his
sureties. It is anything but'well ard
truly executing his duties as cashier. ' "
