tlie recent failure of a firm of "brokers

public , especially those persons who lost
money , were enabled to get a momentary
glimpse into the workings of a "bucket-

ostensibly engaged in buying and selling
stocks , bonds and other securities for customers. It dif
fers from a legitimate brokerage establishment in that
It has no membership in any reputable stock exchange
nor any valid correspondence with any member of such
an exchange. In its transactions no stock certificate or
any equivalent changes hands. The customer who "buys"
merely bets that a stock will rise ; the customer who
"sells" merely bets-that a stock will drop. Most custom
ers of bucket shops , being ignorantly optimistic , are
"bulls ; " they beMeve in a rising market , and therefore
"buy. " A quiet or a sinking market wipes out most of
their bets , to the profit of the broker. A rising market
presses the broker ; he conveniently goes into bankruptcy ,
the customer does not get his money , and the swindler
goes Into business again in another town or under another

Is legitimately connected. Transactions with legitimate
brokers , although they are always dangerous for ignor

honesty by the records of the exchange , which can be
brought into court to show in each case who bought and

a bucket shop is foolish from a business standpoint , and

will have to be room for that of the "son of poor , but
respectable parents" who did not "betake himself to the

about him where he stood , saw he was well located , and
proceeded to make tha most of surrounding opportunities

LL riots lead to the Jews in Russia. Al

was through these entertainments that
Mrs. Astor became better known than
any woman of the time. Mrs. Astor's
dinners were formal affairs , but they
were not stil and irritating. They
were , in fact , stately to a charming de
gree , and her guests , though they were
always made at ease , even felt that
they were participating in a function
and not a romp.
It was through these affairs that
Mrs. Astor , though she never sought
for anything but the pleasure of her

dinners , in that they were delightfully
formal without being cold and repell

lavish expenditure , but there va.-
never any such vulgar features as oft

use of the negro minstrel and the rag

elegant rather than grotesque and
comic , and yet everybody always crav

Her dinner companies were usually
given for some distinguished personal-
ity , perhaps a prince , a duke , or inayba
a count. She always had every for
eign notability in town on her list , for
each invariably brought credentials to
her from some friend at court.
