TRR BUCKET MHOP.
The exceedingly good people of Now
York have made ft law against the con
tinued existence of "Buckett Shops."
The "Bucket Shop," so called because
there, it was said, one might speculate
in grain ia as small quantity as a bucket
ful, is simply a small copy of the large
gauibliug establishment, called a grain,
produce, or stock exchange. The legis
latures of Illinois and some other states
have made laws looking toward the
same result. The reason the "Bucket
SIiqjj" is to be squelched is not at all be
cauoc it invites people of small means to
spend their meagre savings in gambling,
. but I ccnuse it takes away a certain
amount of "legitimate business" from the
more "respectable" because richer ex
changes. This is all done ostensibly in
the interest of good 'morals; but rcaly to
keep up a monopoly of this peculiar
kind of gambling. Yet nous of the
Legislatures which have passed these
laws would, for a momeut, dare to li.
oense a faro game, wherein the "outsider1'
has a much better chance of winning
tbau when playing against the former
and larger game. If the states which
countenance such a condition are not
rotten, there is no such thing as political

What Mis Thought Wer. While
Viewing the Tomb.
During a recent speech, Colonel 11. O.
Ingeraol said: A little while ago I
stood by the grave of old Napoleon a
magnificent tomb of gilt and gold, fit al
. most for a deity dead and gazed upon
the sarcophagus of rare and nameless
marble, where rests at least the ashes of
that restless man. I leaned over the
balustrade and thought of the career of
the greatest soldier of the modern world.
I saw him walking on the banks of the
, Seine contemplating suicide. I saw him
- at Toulon. I saw him putting down the
(bob in the streets of Pais. I saw him at
the head of the army in Italy. I saw
him crowding the bridge at Lodi with the
tri-oolor 'toy K hanu'. 1mw him in
Egypt in the shadows of thw pyramids.
I saw him conquer the Alps anVl mingle
the eagles of France with the ekgler of
of the crags. I taw him at Marengo, at
Ulm and at Austerlitz. I sawf him in
Russia when the infantry of tihe snow
and the cavalry of the wild bla&t scat
tered his region like winters withered
leaves. I saw him at Leipsto in defeat
and disaster driven by a million fclayo
nets back upon Paris clutched lik e a
wild beast banished to Elba. I skw
him escape and retake an empire by tthe
force of his gemua. I saw him on thU
frightful field of Waterloo, whore Chance)
and Fate combined to wreck the fortunes
of their former king. And I saw him at
St. Helena with his hands crossed be.',
hind him, gazing out at the sad and sol .
I thought of the widows and orpha,ns
he had made of the tears that had been
shed for his glory, aud of the only woiman
who ever loved him, pushed fron his
heart by the cold hand of ambition And
I said 1 would rather have been a French
peasant and wore wooden sboea. I
would rather have lived in a but with a
vine growing over the doo and the
grapes growing purple in Jflie amorous
kisses of the autumn sun. A would rath
er have been that poor peasant, with my
. wife by my side knitting as the day
died out of the sky -'with my children
' upon ray knees and their arms about me
I would rather have been that man,
- and gone down to the tongueleea silence
. of the dreamless dust, than to have been

Bob Burdette writes as follows: My
homeless friend with the chromatic nose
while you are stirring up the sugar in a
ten cent glass of gin let me give you a
fact to wah down with it. You say
you have longed for years for the free
independent life of a farmer, but have
never been able to get money enough to
gether to buy a farm. But this is just
where you are mistaken. For several
years you have baen drinking' an im
proved yard at the rate of 100 square
feet per gulp. If you doubt this state
ment figure it out yourself. An acre of
land contains 43 5000 square feet Esti
mating for convenience the land at 843 50
per acre, you will see that it brings the
land to just one mill per square foot, one
cent for ten square feet. Now pour
down the fiery dose and imagine you are
swallowing a strawberry patch. Call in
your five friends and gulp down -that 500
foot garden. Get on a prolonged spree
sometime and see how long a time it re
quires to swallow a pasture large enough
to feed a cow. Put down that plus of
gin, there's dirt iu it 100 feet f good
rich dirt, worth f43 50 per acre.

Kats' Tails. M. Bert sewed the tip
of the tail into the back of the rat. Af
ter it bad taken root in its new position,
he cut it off close to its original point of
insertion. The rat now wore a tail re
versed in position, the former tip being
the root. After some time it was found
that the new tail was sensitive. Conclu
sion, the nerves of sensation can carry
impulses each way. Dr. Koch has re
cently performed this experiment on
forty rats. In thirty cases the tails
united sntibfactorily, but never, even
eight months later, was any sensation
present in the new appendage. Scien
