Bungee Jumps of Collective Countries! - by Betting Paper-Money

[Speaking of Smiley, hero of the Jumping Frog story]
He was a real character, and his name was Greeley. The way he got the name of Smiley was this -- I wrote the story for the New York Saturday Gazette, a perishing weekly so-called literary newspaper -- a home of poverty; it was the last number -- the jumping frog killed it. They had not enough "G's", so they changed Greeley's name to "Smiley." That's a fact.
