JUDGE WOLVERTON DIES
SUDDENLY AT GEARHART
Charles E. Wolverton, federal judge
and one of Oregon's most prominent
citizens and jurists, died suddenly
Tuesday night at Gearhart, where he
had been passing a vacation prior
to the resumption , of the regular
. schedule in court next month.
The judge dropped dead in the lob
by of the Gearhart hotel. " He was
spending two weeks at Gearhart en
deavoring to recover from a slight
illness. -After an afternoon on the
golf course and while in seeming
good health, the judge seated himself
in a chair in the Hotel lobby to read
the evening paper.
Apparently the stroke came unex
pectedly for he was dead when dis
covered by friends who had ' first
thought he had fainted. The physi
cian who was called on the case, stat
ed death was caused by loco-motor-ataxia.
The judge was 75 years of

Trace "Teetotaler' to
Top Used in Gambling
. Perhaps you have seen the little
"put-or-tako" . tops for purposes of
petty gambling. They are not new,
for they used to be called "teetotums."
A" teetotum had four sides, and each
side had a letter to signify the dlspo-.
sition' of the gambling stakes should
this side fall upward "A" for aufer,
meaning to take away; "D" for de
pone, meaning to put down; "N" for
nihil, meaning nothing ; and, the most
important of the four symbols, "T"
for totum, meaning all (that Is, take
all). The top thus took Its name,
"teetotum,'.' from the most coveted,
side upon it.
It is an easy transition from "tee
totum" to "teetotaler," for the latter
word may have been Influenced by the
form of "teetotum." "Teetotaler" has
"total" for its basic element, and was
expanded to "teetotal" by a "playful
elaboration" that is, by repeating the
Initial letter for emphasis. ...
The original phrase, in an anti-al-coholic
sense, was "total abstainer,"
and this was given the nickname of
"teetotaler" by one Preston, an agi
tator for the temperance workingmeri
In 1833,. when he spoke of "tee-tee-total"
abstinence frpni Intoxicating bev
erages. Of course the expression, was
probably colloquial before he so used
It, but he may be said to have estab
lished Its significance permanently.1

. Old Travel Maps
Motorists who use the ingenious
strip maps of today, which are a cross
between a map and a picture, prob
ably imagine that the idea is an ex
tremely modern thing, invented In re
sponse to an equally modern demand,
snys the Wail Street Journal. But
one user thereof was startled the other
day on coming across an exactly Iden
tical treatment of important highways
In Great Britain, dating back some two
or three hundred years. Instead of
being in any wise crude or Incomplete,
the older strip maps were more de
tailed and explicit than the modem.
Each mllepost was Indicoted by figures
and landmarks along the route were
noted In such useful phrases ' as : "A
large stone," "An oak tree," "Narrow
gate into a meadow," etc. Nor were
any. of the Inns or branch roods
omitted. . 7 :r. :. ''

From a West Window .
"We' have a liking for a house that
faces the west," says E. E. Kelly, In
the Garden City (Ga.) Herald, and he
gives liis reasons, as follows :"..
"East fronts may have their ad
vantages, but with the coming of twi
light there is a feeling that a happy or
a contented day has ended all too
soon. To sit on an east porch- In the
twilight Is for those to ejijoy who live
in memories; but'the home that faces
the sunset has about It a pervading
atmosphere of youth and hope: The
fading sunset light and the slow comv
Ing night shortens the hours of dark
ness for., one who Is full, of the ioy of
living. , . And, too, however prosaic... or
even sordid the events of the day have
been, almost any evening the soul
may be exalted as nature paints her
cloud pictures above the western hori-.
