It Is not, possibly, tho fault of tho

BANK DIRECTORS TO BE
Convinced that ns a general thing
bank directors do not direct, tho
comptroller of national banks has Is
sued an order that bank directors, in
addition to irregular and infrequent
meetings must havo set monthly
meetings, appoint an examining and
discount committee nnd all tho loans
and discounts of each month must bo
approved by tho directors at tho
monthly meeting, such approval to
bo recorded in permnnent form. In
compliance with this order tho comp
troller has asked all of tho banks to
amend and forward to him a copy of
their by-laws. Hereafter in applica
tions for a national bank tho organ
izers will havo to submit a copy of
their proposed by-laws which must
provide at least for monthly meetings.
As a general thing ono or two men
run a bank while tho rest of tho di
rectors are simply figureheads. With
such a ruling from headquarters thoso
who accept the position of directors
of banks will know hereafter that
they have other duties to perform
than to look wlso and have no knowl
edge of what is going on.

Fresh air Is essential to ubod

This Is particularly true of
consumption. There are many

which require change of air. The
change decided on must, of

to the nature of the case. The
delicate and consumptive, for
example, must not be sent to a
bleak, cold situation, even
though these will often be much
the better for a bracing atmoe
Without a full and free ex
posure to out-door air no ease
