.She Teaches Whist.
A Wisconsin woman, Miss Kate Irwin
Wheelock, is a pioneer in afresh field for
wornan"s occupation. For eight years
she has been teaching whist to women in
Milwaukee. Her initial class grew out
of a company of friends, who, knowing
her proficiency at the game, begged her
to give them a little instruction. From
this informal beginning Miss Wheelock
has built up a, lucrative business, and
her classes now are regular and sys
The young teacher is described as a
small woman, "with quiet manners, a

By tbe Atnoclated Prcii
Nkw York, Dec. 11.— The World says
tbe case of Zella Nicolaus against
George Gould appears in an entirely
new light. According to a statement of
friends of Mrs. Nicolaus, she originally
obtained a $40,000 check from Howard
Gonld when tbe latter was attending
tbe world's fair in Chicaga. It
is said he became infatnated with
Mrs. Nicolaus and gave ber
the check which had been given bim by
George Gould in division of a particular
portion of Jay Gould's estate. George
Gould learned of tbe transaction with
Mrs. Nicolaus in time to stop tbe pay
ment of the check in Chicago. Mrs.
Nicolaus went to New York and Howard
Gould promised to set the matter
right. There was a stormy inter
view between George and Howard, the
former decla'ing the sum too large
to pay any woman. Howard refused to
break with Mrs. Nicolans, who waited
upon George and threatened to bring
suit. George consulted Superintendent
Byrnes, who sent for Mrs. Nicolans
and threatened her with arrest
as a blackmailer. She defied
him to arrest her on such
a charge, and said she had done nothing
for wbioh she conld be arrested and
would not leave the city until the
matter was settled. She stated George
Gould said for family reasons be did
not want , the check to go through the
bank with her signature, and it she
would give up the check he would pay
her $40,000 in bills. She agreed to this
and received two bills of $500 each,
supposing he would count ont tbe re
mainder, but he grabbed the check and
threatened to have her arrested as a
blackmailer. Hence tbe suit.

The National Bank of California is one of tin- tow nuiks that successfully stood Ihe shoe* of
the late panic and maintained lull coin payments rl ;:u through.
The National Bank of California pays no Interest urn deposits in nnv form, offers no special
inducements for business other than reliability when utu customers exercise their rights to de
mand their money.
In the matter of loans it looks more to reliability thaa high ratoi of interest, and de«lreino
loans except from good and reliable psrtles, and then exacts good security, believing that no
bank Is better or more tellable than its loans.
