A Vetera Banker Exhibit a Carl.
Llaa of Sample Caaea That
Came lader Hla Obaertatloa la the
Course of Baalaeaa.
"Business women of course," said a
etcrun bunker, "understand the rou
tine of. bunking from the customer's
side of It about as well as meu, but
the queer Ideas the averuge woman
got iu business has about a bank would
make a totem pole laugh.
"I lost an awful good account once
because I couldn't convince a woman
that a note put lu the bank for collec
tion Is not money. She came in one
day, made out a deposit slip and tried
to deposit a note Just due. The teller
told her that be would forward it for
collection. That seemed to strike her
as all right, and she kept on writing
checks against her account.
"She overdrew in a day or two and
we sent her notice. She came down in
a towering rage and asked me what
my bank meant by insulting her. Over
drawn? Ridiculous! Why, she had
deposited $5,000 only a few days ago.
Wliut had we done with that money?
"I tried to explain to her that the
'deposit' she referred to was only a
note sent out for collection; that it bad
not been paid and might be returned
unpaid. She flew Into a passion. What
did she care about it? She had given
It into the bank, and she meant to have
the money on it.
"What were banks for? I cautioned
her against checking against the
amount of the note until it had been
paid, but she went away In a buff and
kept right on making checks until we
hud to stop her. We refused ber
checks, marking them 'No funds,' and
then she withdrew her account. It
turned out to be a dandy afterward,
but to this day, I understand, she can't
see any difference between notes,
checks, drafts and currency.
"Strange as it may seem, the number
of women honest, absolutely guileless
women who write other persons' sig
natures to checks is large. Only to
day, for instance, the daughter of ono
of our best customers came into the
bank with a check for $500 made pay
able to herself.
"Her father's name was signed to it,
and be had plenty of money In the
bunk, but his daughter hud signed bis
nnme herself. We explained to her
that we couldn't pay out money on
such an order or request.
" 'But,' said she, 'we haven't a cent
of money in the house. Tapa is on the
train somewhere between here and
New York, and I you don't suppose
he'd hesitate to give us $500, do youV
"That young woman did not and
could not understand why she didn't
have as much right to use her father's
credit at the bank as she had to use
it at the dry goods stores and the
butcher shops. I wanted to tell her
that she had really committed forgery,
but I didn't. I advanced the money
on my persouul account, and she went
away a bit miffed and fancying that
we were n fussy, unreasonable lot of
money gatherers.
"Things like that are always coming
up In every bank. We had one depos
itor, an inexperienced young widow.
She had over $30,000 iu the bank. One
day she came lu and wrote a check for
the full balance, payable to herself.
The teller stared and asked how she'd
have It Any way would suit her, she
suld, only she wauted the cash.
"He sent word to me and begun to
count out the money In $100 and $500
notes. After counting them over Bhe
wrapped the whole sum up in a news
paper and went out. We were all puz
zled, and we were afraid she might
be robbed, so I sent two of the clerks
after her to see what she did with the
money as well as to protect her. She
walked through the crowded streets
about six blocks to another bank and
deposited the whole $30,000 to the cred
it of a poor young lawyer to whom,
we afterward learned, she was en
gHged to be married.
"I don't think he was then aware of
her intention to transfer her money to
his account or he would have advised
her to get a certified or cashier's check
Instead of lugging her fortune through
the downtown streets of a city like
"The woman depositor who can't un
derstand why other persons' checks de
posited by herself are deducted from
her account when they are no good is a
familiar character In nearly every
"When such a check comes back and
they are asked to take It up they will
look unutterable scorn at the teller or
collector and say: 'I put it back? Well,
I guess not. Why should I pay It? I
didn't make It out. Mr. So-and-so gave
It to me, and if it isn't good that's his
lookout. Oo after him. The Idea!
Surely you don't expect me to pay out
my own good money for Mr. Bo-and-
"By drawing several diagrams, exert
ing much patience and diplomacy, you
may convince such a woman that she
has to cover the bad checks she de
posits, but very often she refuses or
falls to be convinced. She will prob
ably insist on realizing on every cent
the teller give ber credit for In her
hank book, and If she doesn't get It
look out She'll take her account to
sume other bank and resume her deter
initiation to have "her rights.' Oh, the
Inexperienced woman Is almost as an
noylng and far more numerous than
dishonest women, so far as banks are
concerned."" Cincinnati Commercial

"What becomes of the hundreds of
legs and arms of unfortunate ampu
tated at the Louisville hospitals annual
ly.' was asked of the superintendent
of one of the large Louisville hospitals.
"Whatever the owners want done
with thain.
"If you had to lose your right arm
what would you want don with ltf
asked the superintendent, glancing ca
ter cornered over his spectacles with a
quizzical air.
"When I die, which I bop won't be
soon, I want my body to be decently
buried, and I thluk I wouldn't feel
right If my arm wasn't there too. Be
sides, I want It handy on judgment
"Exactly so," said the superintend
ent, "and there are a great many like
you. They exhibit the greatest affec
tion for the doomed member and (It
minute orders as to how It shall be
disposed of.
"I have known people who bad their
limbs embalmed and placed In little
lead coffins and stored away In a
vault, so that when they died the limb
could be burled with them.
"I knew of one man who had his leg
burled in the yard where he could look
out of his window and see Its grave.
He would each day place a bunch of
flowers ou the mound and stay by It
for hours."
"I was asking for facta," said the re
porter. "You are getting them," replied the
superintendent. "I could enumerate
a number of instances where limbs
were buried In the grave with their
former owners.
"I think that the sentiment la a beau
tiful and righteous one," said a mem
ber of the group, "and one that 1
should adopt if such bad fortune over
took me."
"I have also kuowu people," resumed
the superintendent "who displayed the
utmost indifference as to the ultimate
fate of their amputated members. No
thought of their limbs seems to enter
their beads. They go under the knife
without asking any questions and come
from under the influence of the ether
and so far as I know go through life
without Inquiring what became of
their legs or arms.
"These people come from the lower
classes, who have no fine sensibilities
or sentiments. It's generally the cul
tured and refined man who gives or
ders as to the disposition of a lost
"Well, what do you do with the limbs
of these don't care people?" asked the
reporter, whose curiosity seemed never
to be appeased.

most sanitary and least troublesome
way." Louisville Herald.
