MI-LADY'S BEAUTIFUL PEARLS
10 has not admired a beau-
neck of some lovely worn
when hung about tho fair
tlful string of pearls
an? In many Instances they show off
to n better advantage than diamonds.
But while admiring the luster of tho
gems how many stop to think whero
they come from and of tho labor it
takes to get them? Of course tho
first person asked as to where the
pearl comes from will answer without
any hesitation, "From the oyster,"
but thnt is as far as the genera:
The pearl oyster Is distinct from
the common edible oyster, and while
somewhat resembling the latter In
shape has thinner valves, and Is pro
vided with fi small cablo by which It
'holds onto the rocks and other sub
stances nt the bottom of tho sen.
The best-known pearl oyster banks
ore along the northwest coast of Cey
lon nnd their position nffords a de
gree of protection from the Influences
of tho weather and tno currents.
Fish, water snakes and a fish known
as tho skate destroy an enormous
number of valuable pearl oysters.
In locating a sultnblo "ground" a
diver Is, sent down and ha brings up a
quantity of oysters. From tneso an
estimate Is made as to the ago of the
oyster and alfeo ns to the number In
tho bed. Experts In the pear ojster
business can come very close to tho
ago of an oyster at a glance, and It
thoso brought up by the diver arc
found to be flvo years of ago or over
und In sufficient quantities to be Hail
ed a sample of from 10,000 to 12,000
are taken and washed and the output
Is valued. If this valuation reaches
a certain mark the "ground" is
staked oft and the fishing commences
A small village where the fishing
grounds aro not of the best, and
again whero the fishing covers a large
area, a city of from 40,000 to 00,000
will spring up In a few days, but It is
a city of workers only.
At midnight a signal gun Is fired
and by sunrise tho licet, numbering
sometimes 250 boats, Is at anchor
around an old bark which serves as a
mark on the center or the fishing
ground. A signal Is fired from the
Inspection ship to begin operations,
and the sound of the gun has not
died away beforo there Is a great
splash as half of the divers drop Into
tno sea. Alt save tho Malayallm div
ers, who plunge head foremost from
n springboard, descend to tho bottom
In an unrlght position, carried swift

pounds lnvtho case of the local divers,

Mats In tho caro of two ropes slung
over a rude rail above tho side gf the
ship and which are attached, respect
ively, to tho diving stone nnd oyster
basket. When ready to descend, the
diver, if ho bo a Tamil, adjusts tho
basket on the top of the diving stone
and secures It In position by placing
one foot upon It. He draws a long
breath, closes his nostrils with the
fingers of one hand, raises his body
as high as possible above the water
to give force to his descen:, ana then
suddenly releasing the loop that sup
ports the stone is carriod swiftly to
the bottom. An Arab diver closes the
nostlls with a horn clip suspended
from a cord slung around the neck.
Ills descent Is slightly less rapid
than that of the Tamil, and this
tends to lessen tho danger to which
tho drum of the car Is subjected It
Insufficient time be allowed for ad
justment to tho heightened pressuro

I On reaching tho bottom the diver
steps oft, the sinker, slips the nooso
'of the bag or basket round his neck.
and swims slowly over the bottom,
transferring to his bag all the oys
ters ho can Bee, Meanwhile his man
Utile has hoisted up tho stouo nnd ad
justed his ropo In position on the
rail ready for tho next diver. Almost
as soon as this Is done tho-dlvcr bo
low Is ready to como to tho surfec,
Indicating this by a signal twitch on
tho basket topo. Instantly two man
duks (tho divers work usually An
pairs, ono In and the other out of tho
water) haul In tho rope with the ut
most dispatch, tho diver being drawn
up" with it. The bag Is lifted over
tho boat's side,' the contonts emptied,
nnd the bag returned to the diver,
who, after n few minutes' rest, Is
ready to doscend again. When a
man has been In the water half an
hour and has, perhaps, mado seven
or eight desconts, he Is glad to get a
rest and let his comrado tako Ills
place. It may bo noted that by this
system a slnglo set of gear serves
two men; In tho old days a boat's ca
pacity was stated as so many
"stones," and when this Is known tho
number of the divers Is ascertained
at once by merely doubling the num
ber of theio stones.
Tho weakest divers nro tho Malay
allm men; forty seconds is their nv
crago below water. Tho Christian
Tamils nro better by flvo seconds, and
tho Moormen excel this by another
flvo seconds. The Arnbs do much
better and think nothing or soventy
to eighty seconds In depths of 7 to S
fathoms. The Arab will go much
gicator depths than tho others;
whcioas tho Malayallm divers do not
caro lo go beyond 7 fathoms, and tho
Moors and Tamils will work down to
D fathoms. Tho Arabs find no cl 1 11
tulty in prosecuting diving nt 14 nnd
1G fathoms, and oven go down to 20
lnthoms on occasion,
Tho number of oysters obtained at
