A liberal but conservative banking
business is done. In addition to
making loans, handling collections,
receiving deposits, etc., the bank
negotiates drafts on prominent
banking houses in all the large cities
of Europe. It receives the accounts
of corporations, firms and individ
uals on the most favorable terms, is
suing either books or certificates of
deposit. It discounts choice com
mercial papers, issues sight drafts
on leading American cities; executes
orders for its customers in either lo

practically the facilities of a metro

unimpeachable integrity and broad

The author sus thai the prcvo

rougher sex, is an error, and that
the disease is more common among
He also combats the idea that
fresh air is of particular use in con
sumption, and contends that a
hii in nl atmosphere docs not promote
the disease. According to his the
ory, it is a mere matter of breath
ing, and that because women in
breathing exercise the apex of tho
lungs more than the men, therefore
they are more exempt from its rav
ages. He counsels deep breathing.
We suppose there is something in
the theory; but all sigiiH fail iri dry
weather, and no general statement
will meet every ease. As Dr. Kings
bury would say the exception proves
the rule. A proper exercise of the
lungs may ward off the disease, and
may even cure it when other condi
tions arc favorable.
The exercise is generally taken in
the open air, and hence the notion
that fresh air is helpful.
We recall two cases. At the be
ginning of the war, a young gentle
man who had innumerable homor

who was looking death squarely in
the face, went to the iield and bo-
came cured. After the war he was
