A FAMOUS DIAMOND.
Curious Incident In the History of
The Kohinoor fell into the hands of
the ruler of Lahore and on the con
quest of the Punjabkbecame a posses
sion of Queen Victoria in the year
1850. The first authentic mention of
this matchless gem is by an eastern
monarch, who refers to a "jewel valued
at one-half the daily expenses of the t
whole world." A century or two later 1
the Persian conqueror of India, seeing o
the diamond glitter in the turban of A
the unfortunate rajah, exclaimed, with I
rough and somewhat costly humor, d
"Come, let us change our turbans in !
pledge of friendship!" The exchange
was promptly effected. The stone fell at
at last into the hands of the British, tl
and pending its delivery to the crown s
Sir John Lawrence, afterward Lord C
Lawrence, was made its guardian. ID
His biograltier, Bosworth Smith, re- C
lates a curious incident of Its custody.
Half unconsciously Sir John thrust it, a
wrapped up in numerous folds of cloth, ar
into his waistcoat pocket, the whole be- r<
iii in an insignificant little box. He a:
continued the work upon which he was b<
engaged and thought no more of his o1
precious treasure. He changed his C
clothes for dinner and threw his waist- e
coat aside, still forgetting all about the n
little box contained in it. S
Some weeks afterward a message
came from the viceroy saying that the t<
queen had ordered the jewel to be im- fc
mediately transmitted to her. es
In a moment the fact of his careless- w
'ness flashed across Sir John, but he te
slipped away to his I)rivat6 room S
and with his heart in his mouth sent so
for his old bearer, of whom he asked: k
"Have you a small box that was in
my waistcoat pocket some time ago?" 0
"Yes, sahib," the man replied. "I tb
found It and put it in your chest of in
"Bring it here," said Sir John. "Open to
it," he ordered when the little box had A
been produced, "and see what Is in
He watched the man with tense anx- a
lety as fold after fold of the rags was cc
taken off. w
"There is nothing here, sah!b," said nE
the old man at last, "but a bit of
The Trv.nsition From the Festive
Board of Primitive Man.
The first dining table was probably
just a block of stone or a log of wood,
but even primitive man must soon
have discovered that these devices did
not provide for the comfortable dis
posal of his legs and have set about
taxing all his Ingenuity to invent some
thing else. It is probable that as the
result of his cogitations a rough hewn
piece of board supported on two big N
stones came into fashion among the
elite in these far prehistoric times.
The early trestle table which was
used in the beginning of the fifteenth
century consisted of a parallelogram of
wood, fashioned Into a board, resting U]
upon two or more pedestal-like sup- t
ports. And we have a reminiscence of t
thIs movable kind of table in the ex
pression, "A seat at the board," today, tb
while that of "taking the chair" is ob- St
viously a survival of the time when a th
chair was the place of honor reserved Vi
for the master of the house or given by th
the grand seigneur to the guest whom
he wished to honor, the other diners Sn
sitting upon rude benches placed at s
the side of the table. i
One can imagine the inventor seated 19
at the head of hIs new dinner table, ar
clad in his best bearskin and surround- of
ed by a select and admiring company sa
of his intimates, who ate roast flesh
literally off the festive board and who
drank the first toast at this first prime
val dinner party in his honor in cool.
water from a stream hard by. From
Ithis stage to planks resting on rude
trestles would* be an easy transition,
and civilization had of course made
considerable I -ogress before the sup
ports and the board were joined as one
piece of furniture.
The Word "Studio."
"Studio" is one of the many foreign
words that have acclimated them
selves in the English language. It isT
a recent import from Italy, unknown
to ,Tohnson's Dictionary and apparent
ly not occurring before the nineteenth
century, but it has supplied a want.
"Study," which is the real English for
"studio," suggests a room for reading
and writing, and "workroom" lacks
distinctiveness. The French get along
with "atelier," which literally means a
place in which small planks are pre
pared-in other words, a carpenter's
The Middle Class In Novels.
Is it true 'that the modern English
novel reader insists upon hearing about
the rich or the great? I can hardly
think so when I remember the many
successful works of fiction dealing
with costers and Scottish ministers,
journalists and typists, actresses andf
novelists. The Disraeli type of novel
seems almost extinct, and the great
bulk of works of fiction deals with the'
middle classes.-London Lady.
