  This switches off the toner wasting gray backgrounds on plots and the bizarre yellow borders.

Adding Legends to Plots

leg = new TLegend(0.6,0.7,0.89,0.89);
leg->AddEntry(hist_A, "Sample A","f");
leg->AddEntry(hist_B, "Sample B","f");
AddEntry takes the histogram handle, a title for that histogram, and an option that is either "f" for boxes or "l" for lines.
SetFillStyle(0) makes the legends background transparent and adds a border. Alternatively, you can SetFillColor(kWhite) for a white background with no border. (Make sure you don't lose and datapoints behind it!)
