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 name. The secretary of any great exchange will Inform any one who asks , by letter or otherwise , whether a "broker" Is legitimately connected. Transactions with legitimate brokers , although they are always dangerous for ignor ant investors , are nevertheless safeguarded against dis honesty by the records of the exchange , which can be brought into court to show in each case who bought and who sold , and what brokers were agents. Trading with a bucket shop is foolish from a business standpoint , and If engaged in with full understanding , it Is an offense against public morality. Youth's Companion. CHANGES AT HOME. upon a time the ambitious boy who lived in a small town had but one great aim In life to get to the city as soon as possi ble. He had to do it ; it was the only way he could hope to win place and wealth in the world. The small town that he called home held nothing for" him. The town law yer had a waiting list a yard long for young men who sought the coveted position of reading law in his office , the bank could have the pick and flower of a dozen high school graduates when it came to selecting a bookkeeper or clerk , the stores were mouse-eaten and dead. He simply had to go to the city if he wanted a chance to show what was in him. And go he did , for a majority of the business population of our cities hails from the small town ana the country. The young man who stayed in a smart town in the old days was regarded as a fellow who had no ambition , little capacity , and a great lazi ness. ness.But But now things are different. A young man Is not a candidate for the loafer's bench on market square be cause he stays in the old home town after he is old enough to have started his climb to the top. In fact the chances are that he is a wise boy , that he has weighed the advantages of city and town life , their respective opportunities and rewards , well and carefully , and has chosen his way deliberately and In full consciousness of what fle does. And it is to be said that there is no reason in the wide world why he is not wiser , why his choice is not better than the fellow who has packed up. THE REIGN OF REASON. j * Although the son of the house toad een something of life , he was impress- d -by the fine raiment and languid race ; of the summer boarder at Willow- rook Farm. But his father had seen lore of life. "I had thought she was some older ban ; she says , " remarked the son medi- itively one rainy morning as he and is father were at work rubbing up arnesscs. "How old docs she allow she Is ? " In- uired the owner of "Willowbrook Farm , o na/iie being mentioned. "Well 4 , last night as'we sat out on the orch , " said the young man , with a reainy , reminiscent air , "she said she 'ished I could 'see spring steal over ac < land' down in the Evangeline coun ty. She said , I've seen it nine .times ; have never missed it since I was a irl : in my teens. ' " "Well , " said the father , after a quick lance at the unconscious face opposite is own , "how old do you make her by aat ; ? " "She can't be inore'n twenty-eight at aat rate , " said the young man , his pes apparently fixed on a pitchfork. "I guess you haven't considered how ackward some springs are , " mnarked is father , dryly , after a sh&tt pause , irid how there's some of 'em that don't any 'stealing' to speak of , on account 'being behindhand. "I'm a-going to let you be the one to down to the village for the mail the jst o * these summer evenings. The .de will kind of air you out and there iri't going to be much more moon for ae spell , now she's quartering in this iin. " MRS. WILLIAM ASTOR. cr Long : and Honorable Social Ca reer Is Ended. The long and honorable social career Mrs. William Astor is practically uded , by the laws of nature. She is tiling physically and mentally and bile she may be spared a few more sars : , they will be spent in travel and st and she will not again resume that ladershlp of New York and Newport , hlch will probably never be dupli- ited. Mrs. Astor earned her right to the ssition of social leader long before r'arfl McAllister , the epicure , recog- Ized her as such. It was she who jvc the first grand private dinners , hlch are now quite common , and It , bade the old folks good-by and cast his lot in the realm of hall bedrooms and killing competition. The small town of the Middle West , the progressive small town ; and most of them are progressive nowadays , offers the ambitious j'oung man of wide open eyes and unremitting energy probably as good a chance to win place , if not better , than the great cities. The world moves , and in the future biographies of great men there will have to be room for that of the "son of poor , but respectable parents" who did not "betake himself to the city at an early age , " but who , on the contrary , looked about him where he stood , saw he was well located , and proceeded to make tha most of surrounding opportunities with a profitable result. Even now there are several captains of finance who never had to go to the city to get their millions , who never went 100 miles from the spot of their birth to find the field of their operations , and who are thanking their stars that they didn't.

ROOSEVELT'S convershun to the fonetic methud ov speling Is sumwhat surprizing. ] The Prezident duz not luk like a man that wud make a stab at a fad like that , .but it seemz yu never can tel. But now that he has taken up the new idea , what is going to result ? Nothing , absolutely. How could it , when about all the advocates of the spelling reform are people who can't spell anyway ? Catch the average seeker for light on orthography , and you'll catch a person who understands that "cat" begins with a "k" and that it may end with one or two "t's , " at the option of the speller. It is a.good thing to be a good speller. Bad orthog raphy is a detriment to ' many a man's business and a handicap in more ways than one. But the English lan guage as constructed at the present time , though it have its peculiarities and its idiosyncrasies , is a pretty good old language , and any attempts to make radical changes in the method of putting it together are practically cer tain to fail. What we want more than spelling reform ig a closer study of words in their present construction. That there are absurdities which might be eliminated with profit is true , but scholars insist that the language as a whole is good enough ; and that ought to "go. " Williamsport ( Pa. ) Grit RUSSIA'S INPAMY. LL riots lead to the Jews in Russia. Al Siedlce , according to the Associated Press dispatches , there was first an attack on the police by terrorists. Then the troops came into action and the Libau regiment left its barracks in a fury and made not for the terrorists but for the Jewish quarters. It went shooting right and left and , was followed by a sym pathetic crowd that helped in the pillage and slnughter. The soldiers themselves sold their plunder openly under the eyes of their oflice s. Such tales of bloodshed are repeated again and again. They elicit indignant protests all over the civilized world , but governors and military officers encourage the massa cres just the same. They bring such infamy upon their country that public sentiment everywhere is turning strongly against it as though it were a land of bar barians. Chicago Record-Herald. 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 friends , earned her right to social lead ership. Nowadays such dinners as Mrs. Astor astonished society with are duplicated at Newport often five and sis times in an evening , but it was Mrs. Astor who gave the first , and it was she who was alone in thus en- MRS.

There were always'indications of lavish expenditure , but there va.- never any such vulgar features as oft en characterize entertainments of to day. She could entertain without the use of the negro minstrel and the rag time. Her cotillon favors were always elegant rather than grotesque and comic , and yet everybody always crav ed an invitation to a ball at Beech- wood. 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. Thus Mrs. Astor has been a sort of social censor. She was the best known American woman in.all the courts of Europe , and foreigners coming over without letters to her were utterly without the slightest means of social entree. Utica Globe.
