"and blue is the color preferred first.
Psychologists consider the selection of

Salesmen Many Have Lost Every

More than $G),000,000 has been
swindled from American Investors by
slick; stock salesmen during the last
four- years, according to ollicials who
are engaged in a nation-wide probe of
bucUet-shoi'S and fake stock proposi
tions. Most of this money, it was said,
was mulcted from poor widows ami
working men, who entrusted their sav
ings of years into the hands of smooth
sharpers. With federal agents taking

by Attorney General Daugherty, a gen

Attorney General Daugherty, in which
874 persons have been arrested or In

Most of the cases, the attorney gen
eral explained, were fake oil stock
companies, although the swindling
schemes ranged from bucket-shops and
mining stocks to patent "elephant

Quoting from his reports, Mr.

eral estimated that $o.rX,oX) had been

More than 100.000 persons have been
victimized by bucket-shop operators In
New York city alone in the last year,
according to an estimate by District
Attorney Hanton. The victims range
from the poor and uninitiated to the
moderately wealthy and well Informed,
who probably would not have fared as
badly as they did had not the stock
market been so favorable to operations
of the bucketeers.
Reputable Brokers In Arms.

are co-operating in the efforts to "clean

welcomed the Inquiry as a means of

A favorite scheme, it was said, was
to lull the unsuspecting Investor into a
state of security by paying him cash
dividends for a time. The bucket-shop

have lost every cent of their life sav

Families have been left in want and

given their all to the bucketeers, ex

remainder oL their lives, only to. lose
their incomes and now stand on the
brink of starvation.
A Janitress told the district attorney
that she drew from the bank her en
tire life savings, amounting to .SI,!',
to give to three men who were form

promised to buy her stocks v.! K-li
would pay big dividends. A few !ajs
later the firm failed and the woman
learned the three men had added her
mite to the sum they had fleeced else
where and then left the country.
A policeman told of losing his S.'l.tMi
nesteg, which was invested in slock
paying 7 per cent, when he turned it
over to a bucket-sln-p which guaran
teed to pay him 1U per cent. One man
told the district attorney he dropped
in eight months in deals which
he discovered too late were crooked.
Many investors were placated, ac
cording to the investigators, when the
bucket-shop operators sent ijhem sale
confirmation slips showing that stock

table concern in the financial district.
The swindlers would then sell the
stock, pocket the money and disappear
from their temporary oMlces.
Spent Money Lavishly.
Iucket-shop operators spent money
lavishly, although In many cases they
began business with little or nothing,
sometimes paying the first month's
rent from proceeds from the initial
"suckers." Sums obtained from nth
ers ostensibly for legitimate invest
ments were devoted to the purchase,
or rental, of line olllce furniture. A

surrounded him were astonished. Tin
chick was alive and chirping.
Madison said to those who ran h
from every direction as the word

had forgotten it. The warmth of tin
pocket and the heat of the radiatoj
had caused the chicken to hatch. Madi
