WOMAN LESS WOMANLY.
It is Impossible for women to engage
lu nny business life without losing at
.least a little of that softness and
well, call It irresponsibility If you will,
that once formed her chief charm. Sbo
may gain the more Bolld qualities of
mind, but walk she ever so circum
spectly her eyes will be opened upon
the hard fncts of llfo and the practical
ities of a most prosaic world will rub
a little of the bloom otf the peach. As
n matter of self-protection and self-interest
this may bo a good thing for the
woman who must enter the arena of
cvery-dny llfo and work early.
Dut upon those mnrrted women who
are more or less secretly propagating
tho gospel of discontent, as well ns the
single woman of any assured Income,

And so the following plan was formu

THE STUDENT'S REMEDY.
How To Test a Diamond
Any one can tell n genuine diamond
or precious stone even from n very
doer Imitation. There are a few
household tests which are practically
Infalllbla. The diamond cxpcit, after
long years of experience with gems,
can detect an Imitation, ns a into, ut a
glance. Tho layman In such matteis,
with a few simple tests, takes mora
tlmo to boIvo such problems, but his
judgment in tho end Is scatcely less
An Imitation diamond Is novcr so
brilliant as a genuluo stone. If your
eye Is not experienced enough to de
tect tho difference a very simple test
is to place tho stono under waler. Tho
Imitation stono Is practically extin

should be absolutely free from any
ttneo of grease. The metal will give
off Rome of Its color to an imitattOD
stone, whllo a genuine diamond will
rcmuln peifoctly clear and unaffected
Among Jcwelleis the final test Is to
apply a drop of tluorhjdrlc acid to tbc
stone under suspicion. The acid wjll
eat into nny false diamond and frort
It, while the genuine stones will i,ot
be damaged in the slightest degree.

however, is to examine an ink spot on

Tne til I tli of twins, as claimants for
lirt of an estate vnlued at nearly $200,
