A DEAL IN DIAMONDS
The True Story ef an Ingenious
Swindle In London.
A CLEVERLY WORKED GAME.
It Netted on Impecunious Russian No
bleman a Thousand Pounds Sterling.
Tno Easy Manner in Which Count
Sacha Got Something For Nothing.
Count Sacha Roubletsky was on his
beam ends In London. To the world
he was still a dashing young noble
man, son of an immensely wealthy
Russin prince, but in point of fact
he was financially at his last gasp.
He wanted a thousand or so for
nothing. That was the problem he de
bated as he sat In his lodging smoking!
cigarette after cigarette. At last he
rose with a satisfied smile. Next morn
Ing Count Sacha called on Messrs.
Sparkle & Shine, the well known Bond
street jewelers. He explained who he
was and that he bad come to select
some jewelry for his sweetheart.
From the glittering tray he selected
a beautiful stone, price ?500. He then;
explained that. his remittances being
delayed, he was not in a position to
complete the purchase at the moment,
and, in any case, he wished first to
submit the stone to his sweethearts
He added suavely that as he was un
known to Messrs. Sparkle & Shine he
could not expect them to part with the
gem without making Inquiries. but
they were at liberty to apply to the
Russian embassy for any information
they desired concerning him. He
would return the following day and.
everything being satisfactory, take the
To this the jewelers agreed and, in
quiring at the Russian embassy, were
informed that Count Sacha was un
questionably the son of a wealthy1
prince and that they would probably
be safe in giving him credit for even!
more than the amount mentioned.
They did not know at the embassy
that Sacha had been disowned by his
father, and they were agreeable to the
count's own suggestion that a member
of the embassy should attend at the
jeweler's next day to identify him
This was done, and Count Sacha re
celved the diamond. The same day
he called at a big pawnbroker's and,
mentioning airily that he was in tem
pozary difliculties. pledged the diamond
for the small sum of 50.
The next day found Count Scha
again at Messrs. Sparkle & Shine's.
His sweetheart, he said, was enchant
ed with th- diamond, but nothing
would satisfy her now but that she;
should have another diamond abso
lutely matching the first.
The jewelers explained that to match
such a stone would be a matter of
great dif~culty and the price of thee
pcond gem would be enormously In
creased-in short, fci such a pair of1
twin diamonds they would have to4
charge ?3,000. Count Sacha shrugged
his shouldes The price was stiff but
het could deny his sweetheart nothing.
Would Messrs. Sparkle & Shine please
at once set about procuring the secondI
The jewelers, being unable to match
the diamond themselves, wrote to the
leading dealers and pawnbrokers do
criing the stone they wanted and
ntiang that they were prepared to
go as far as ?2,000 for a perfect speci
men. Among those they wrote to was1
the pawnbroker with whom Count Sa-!
ca had pledged the original diamond.
which was just what that Ingenious
rascal expe ted.
A few days later Count Sacha calledj
at the pawnbroker's to redeem his dia-j
mond. The pawnbroker had hadi
Msss. Sparkle & Shine's letter, andi
~remembeing the beautiful diamond
pledged with him a day or two before,
he had examined it and found that it
met all of Sparkle & Shine's require
The count redeemed the stone, and[
then the pawnbroker inquired whether
by any chance he would care to sell it.j
Oh, no! It was a family helrloomn
His customer would not Cream of part-i
ng with it.
That was a pity, said the pawnbro
ker He had cancd to show the dia
mond to his wife, and she had taken a
violent fancy to it-so much so that
he was prepared to give a fancy price.
H offered ?S00.
Count Sacha laughed and shook his
head. One thousand pounds? Oh. no!
He really did not want to sell It. An
offer of ?1,300, however, made him hes
itate. At last, after prolonged chaffer-!
ig. Count Sacha passed back the din
mond to the pawnbroker and received
?1,500 in exchange- Once outside he
jumped into a cab and drove as fast
s he could to Messrs. Sparkle &
Arrived there, he explined, with
zany regrets, that his sweetheart bad
changed her mind. She no longer
wanted the second diamond. Had the
jewelers yet found it? No? Ah, that
was well! Still,he fearedhbehad put
thmt uch trouble. However, he
was glad to say his remittances had
arrived and he had now much pleas
ure In handing over ?500 In payment
fr the original diamond, which his
sweetheart had decided to keep.
One thousand pounds to the good.
Count Sacha left the shop, hain
"brought off" a most Ingenious swin
dle. Yet can any one say where he
came within reach of the law?-Pear
It is a question which causes a moth
er the more worry-a boy so sick
that he is good or so thoroughly well
that he is bad.

GOOD '!N SPIDERS.
They Don't Bite and Do Kill Many In
I think it can be said that there;
never has been one absolutely authen
tic case of spider bite. The so called
spider bites received occasionally, and
generally in early summer. often in
bed. are inflicted by certain blood
sucking insects of several species
large and small. The mandibles of
the average sized spiders are hardly
powerful enough to pierce the human
skin. and all of the poison contained
in an arachnid's glands injected into
the flesh of a human bing will not
make as much fuss as a respectable
bee sting. Moreover. spiders are not
mammal bloodsuckers and wouldn't
bite if they could. So much for the
negative qualities of spiders.
If it were not for the spiders we
should all promptly starve to death.
Perhaps this is a little startling; it is
none the less true. To enlarge upon
It, certain spiders prey upon certain!
caterpillars. regularly inhabit their
abodes and kill so many of them that
often whole colonies of the insects are
wiped eut of existence. These cater
pillars normally feed upon the leaves
of trees. bushes and shrubs. frequent
ly entirely denuding a plant. If they
were plentiful enough to exhaust their
common food they would turn to the
weeds and grasses. Without check of
any kind they wouk' overrun the
earth and destroy every green and
growing thing. The spiders beauti
fully preserve the balance of nature.
