It Is Intorc'Htlnj? uml somowhat curious to note tin; piM'slstcnco with which misfortune has Hie name of Covina \Dallcy Savings ffianh OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS "John" when borne by royal persons, filfboiitfh no III omen seems to attach to It In Ihe case of ordinary cill/.en.s, For Instance, Klnn John of Kn.icland has always been regarded, whether altogether Justly or not, as a most. Infamous prince. John of France was taken captive by Ihe Mlack I'rinco, and John Halllol of Scotland was most thoroughly despised by Ids countrymen on account of his fawnlnir. altitude toward the Kiitflish. Robert 111. of Scotland changed his name from John, but this did not save him from hi:* destiny. He himself was a cripple [ nnd died of a broken heart, Ihe most tritKle fates having overtaken all mow dear to him. John 1. of Itoltemla was blind. Th' Pope John I. was Imprisoned by thr IchiK of Ihe (iolhs, and I'ope John K. was driven from Koine by the huUo of Tuscany. I'ope John XI. was impris oiled by Ills brother and Is supposed to have i-eon pol.-ioned, a fate similar to that of I'ope John XIV. I'ope John X V. was forced to llee from Koine and died of fever in Tii-'J-any. John XVI., dubbed the "a;iiij»>V) |% ." at'!-, 1 ! 1 a Iroitblcd career, was brutally tortured and consigned to a dungeon for (he brief re- ma inder of his lite. John I. of Constantinople was polson- od; John II. was killed while huniinn wild boar, ami Joint 111. was del hroned, his eyi-s put out and left to ilie In prison. John I of Castile was killed by n fall from his i.orse. This Is not oy any means a complete list of the nn.ui-l.y Johns, but It serves to sliow the t'aialiiy which seems to dint; about i' i( . name bi so far as royalty is con -ern-'d.
