The defendant in Kenosha, Wisconsin, drew a check on a Kenosha bank and mailed it to the plaintiff in Chicago. Fallowing the practice of many other business houses in Chicago to avoid a high collection charge, the plaintiff, instead of depositing the check in Chicago, sent it by air mail the day after its receipt, for deposit and collection to the plaintiff's bank in Minneapolis, which collected the check through the Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago. The result was presentment to the drawee bank at least one business day later than would have been the case if the check had been first deposited in Chicago, the drawee bank having failed the day before presentment. Held, the check was not presented for payment within a reasonable time, thereby discharging the drawer to the extent of his loss. Mars, Inc. v. Chubrilo, (Wis. I934) 257 N. W. 157.
