GEMS ANO MYTHS.
Some Ancient Beliefs About the Or
igin of Precious Stones.
Thc natives of India up to the he
winning of tho eighteenth century
referred to rock crystal as "an un
ripe diamond." At that time India
wis thought to be tho only land
which produced that preci us stone.
It was not, therefore, until the dis
covery of India that the diamond
was known to ns. Yet as far back
as 500 B. C. a "didactic history" of
precious stones was written, and in
Pliny's time tho supply must have
been plentiful, as he wrote, "Wo
drink out of a mass of gems, and
our drinking vessels are formed of
emeralds/' ' We are also told that
Xero aided Iiis weak sight by specta
cle? made of emeralds.
But it is very difficult to deter
mine whence all tho gems came, as
discoverers took care to leave no
record. Thc nations that traded in
them were afraid of'their where
abouts being known, nnd even the
most ancient mei chants would not
(ii-c?osc any deiiiiitc locale. All
forts of myths have accordingly
faning up concerninj thc origin of
gems. "Diamond" as the namo
given to a youth who was turned
fat o the hardest and most brilliant
of substances to preserve him from
"thc ills that flesh is heir to." Am
ethyst was a beautiful nymph be
loved by Bacchus, but saved from
him by Diana, who changed Ame
thyst into a gem, whereupon Bac
chus turned the gem into wine col
or and endowed the wearer with tho
gift of preservation from intoxica
Thc pearl was thought to be a
dewdrop the shell had opened to re
ceive. Amber was said to be honey
melted by the sun, dropped into
tho sea and congealed. According
to the Talmud, Noah had no light

People Who Fall Safely.
i fall as a rule injures a drunken
man much less than a sober one be
cause, the controlling power of the
mind being rendered nil through in
toxication, the body falls as an in
ert mass, end thus the chances of
injury are lessened, for, strange
though it may appear, it is no less
.a fact that the most numerous cases
of injury arising from a fall are
caused by the ?mort, voluntary or
otherwise, to avert the consequen
ces, thus straining the muscles and
tendons. Very rarely are injurious
effects from a fall known in a luna
tic asylum for the same simple rea
son-thc mind Has no influence over
the action of the body.
And it is a remarkable and well
known fact to those who have to
deal with such cases that whatever
injuries are so caused heal much
more rapidly than in the case of
sane people, the mind having more
to do with retarding or assisting
nature's efforts than is generally
known or realized.

them out to show wherejitheir bank

Chinese Millionaire's Hora?.
it was my fortune to call on one of
the richest men in China, a merchant
prinoe of Foo Chow. Mr. Loen or
dered a tiny cop of tea for us without
delay, and after that was disposed of
showed os over his establishment.
Next to the reception room waa his
bedroom, which waa largely occupied
by a huge bed, beside which the four
poster of our grandmothers would have
looked insignificant. Elaborately
oarved and inlaid with ivory, the bcd
ia a little room in itself. Outside the
bed proper is an ante-room, big enough
to hold a small table and ohair, but all
inclosed within the bedstead. Then
you oome to the couch, wide enough
to hold four people, but hard as a
board, and the pillows are simply
pieces of wood, slightly hollowed in
(he middle. If two or more people
occupy it, they sleep hoad to feet. In
the uortL a fire would be built under
the bed io winter, but in Foo Chow
the mild climate makes this unneces
sary. Beside his bod were his books,
Chinese classics in several large vol
umes, buggesting the thought that Mr.
Leon indulged in the habit of reading
himself off to sleep. Surely the Chi
nese clatsioa are prosy enough to act
as a soporific.
, Io a cupboard protected by glass
doors were several erackod and disrep
utable china bowls, very precious in
their owner's eyes, for they were 300
years old and went baok to the Ming
dynasty. Not unlike other connois
seurs in China was Mr. Leon after all,
for th? older and uglier the more pre
cious seems to be the rule thc world
In another room were Mr. Leonis
ancestral tablets, black 6labs of wood
about two feet high, on which were
engraved the names of his ancestors,
with quotations from the classics to
keep the names company. Before
these tablets on certain occasions Mr.
Leon burns i license and worships their
names. Into other rooms he took ns,
but they were mainly repetitions of
the first with slight variations. All
were substantially furnished; all from
an Occidental point of view were dirty
In one part of his establishment Mr.
Leon had an extensive rockery, where
our pictures were taken together. In
another was a grove of small bamboos.
In still another was a fish pond, in
which gold fish and silver fish lazily
swam to the surface to accept crubs
from our hands. But all were in
closed by the walls of hi?* house.
Going to the roof of one of his houses
we were able to survey the whole es
tablishment. From this coign of van
tage we counted no less than thirty
five roofs belonging to the household
establishment of this one millionaire,
and all inclosed within the family
But Mr. Loon needs a large house,
for he has eight wives, eight sons and
six daughters, and several of the sons
are married and live with their wives
and ohildren under the parental roof.
When we came away the whole
family followed us to the r ..ter door,
where the sedan chairs wet awaiting
us, and with many bows and shaking
of their own hands bade us adieu.
For our part, we went on our way
pleasantly impressed with the unas
suming cordiality and modest hospi
tality of one of China's millionaires.
