F STREET BUSY.
An Enterprising Wrucjrlut Gets It.
Improvement 6eoins to bo the order of the
hour In the noithweBt end; and among all
the many Improvements of that busy section,
F street, thero Is none that attracts more In
terest and attention than the largo six-story
building, corner Eleventh and F streets, built
by order and for account of General Strong, of
Chicago. The building has been constructed
with the single object,- to make It ns perfect
as plau, beat material aud conscientious ser
vice can accomplish anything, and a close in
spection of It will discover It to ba all that Its
builders havo promised or Its owner required.
General Strong has leased the premises for
an extended period to Mr. E. P. Mertz, the
popular pharmacist of Eleventh and F streets,
whoso well-known drug store Is located on
the opposite (southeast) corner, and who
found himself compelled, by the steady in
crease In business, either to Improve or re
move. He chose the latter and selected the
corner described. His accurate judgment
finds indoisement in the fact that some of the
finest business improvements of the city are
locating on F street, and many others are
looking that way.
Mr. Mertz Intends to finish his new store In
a style which will be uot ouly a credit to his
taste a6 a pharmacist but a credit to our city,
as possessing the finest drug store on the At
lantic Coast outside of New York City, and
nothing thero to excel It. Besides this it will
bo a place where superior facilities will en
able him to handle satisfactorily a trade which
has outgrown all possible accommodations at
his old stand. It will be a first-class, practi
cal, and artlstlc-looklntr pharmacy, a place of
beauty and ot use as well.
The main loom will have a handsome effect
in Mexican or Honduras mahogony, with new
and unique designs id gas and electric light
fixtures, mosaic floors, marbje counters, mag
nificent 6oda water apparatus (largest In the
South), and all the other essentials to a
splendidly appointed modern pharmacy. Cut
glassware and high grade out fitting will be
the order of things. A gallery room or addi
tion around the main room will furnish the
privacy of a prescription department, where
five graduated pharmacists will compound
prescriptions always a specialty of the
house and the undevlatlng promptness and
dispatch which havo always marked the
methods of management of this department
will obtain In the new quarters. The main
floor will also carry a full stock and rich dis
play of druggists' sundries, while the staple
drug stock will bo dispensed in the rear, thus
separating the two classes of merchandise.
The wholesale department is on the second
floor. A basement thoroughly dry, es
pecially adapted for storage of perfumery ma
terials, heavy stock, baled merchandise, oils,
gums, etc., runB under the whole building and
is an Ideal stock-room. The laboratory has
been planned to receive the newest and best
of all modern appliances and devices for tho
successful production of medicinal supplies,
and will bo under thB management of a skill
ful chemist with qualified help, aud so tho
new pharmacy will be an especial honor to tho
neighborhood, aud a credit to the section of
the city where enterprise is seeking not to Imi
tate, but to excel all previous efforts of Im
MOON OF THE MOUNTAINS.
Tho History of the Xnrgest Diamond in
From the German. ,
Among tho Russian crown treasures Is found
a large prism-shaped diamond over two inches
long. It Is called tho "Moon of the Moun
tains" and has had a remarkable fate. Once
it ornamented tho Persian throne of Shah
Nadir, and after the death of this mighty
monarch, when his treasures were plundered,
the "Moon of tho Mountalus" also disap
peared. Several years later, among other treasures,
this diamond was offered for sale by an Af
ghan to Armenian jewelers at a remarkably
low price. These jewelers were three broth
ers named Schafras, During the pending ne
gotiations tho Afghan began to fear betrayal
from the lowelers, and secretly left tho city.
One of the three brothers hurried after him,
aud overtook him at Bagdad, just as tho
Afghan had sold his diamond to a merchant
for 00,000 plasters and an Arabian horse. As
tho merchant refused every offer of the Schaf
ras, the brothers murdered him aud fled to
E(?Vnt. TTflrn HlAV ffil! ftlfn n siiinffnl tifirti.t
the division of their booty, and tho youngest
of the Schafras sent his brothers out of the
world by poison, and then went to Holland.
From there ho entered Into negotiations
With the Empress of Russia to sell her his
treasure; ho went to Russia for this purpose,
but could not agreo with her plenipotentiary
about the price and left St. Petersburg, going
to parts unknown. Not until ten years later
could Russian agents bring Schafras, who had
settled in Smyrna, to terms. The "Moon of
the Mountains" was sold for 70,000 rubles and
a title of nobility. The newly-baked baron
went to Astrakhan, became Impoverished
through speculation and died a beggar In mis
ery. The blood-stained diamond is the largest in
tho world, but is not poifectlycut. On ac
count of Its peculiar shape It cannot be used
for Insertion In crown inslgnjas.
