Why "Bucket Shop."
The phrase "bucket shop" origi
nated in Chicago. The board of trade
had forbidden dealings in grain op
tions in less amounts than 6,000 bush
els. An open board was established
for small gamblers under the rooms
of the regular board. When business
was slack in the regular board the
elevator would be sent down for an
other "bucketful" of speculators from
tho unauthorized exchange, which
thus came to be known as the "buck
Bell's Telephone Haunted Him.
Dr. Bell had a strong aversion to
the ringing of tle telephone bell-the
great invention for which he is re
$ponsible. I occasionally went into his
room and found the bell stuffed with
paper, or wound around with towels.
"rittle did I think when I Invented
the thing," said Dr. ]tell one day,
when he had been awakened by the
jingling of the bell, "that it would rise

A Kansas man who was on his first

I can't distinguish him." said the
Kansan. "Of course not." replied his

Servants Proved Faithful.
In the Days of Terror during the
French revolution, when one man was
denounced by another as an act of re

thorities to receive any information
from servants, though it would have
been the easiest thing in the world
for a servant smarting from a sense
of injustice to have sent his master to
