A DEAL IN DIAMONDS
The True Story of an Ingenious
Swindle In London.
A CLEVERLY WORKED GAME.
It Netted an Impecunious Russian No
bleman a Thousand Pounds Sterling.
Tne Easy Manner In Which Count
Sacha Got Something For Nothing.
Count Sacha Roubletsky was on his I
beam ends in London. To the world
he was still a dashing young noble
man, son of an Immensely wealthy
Russian 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
hated as he sat in his lodging smoking
cigarette after cigarette. At last he i
rose with . 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 had come to select
some jewelry for his sweetheart.
From the glittering tray he selected
a beautiful stone, price 150. 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 sweetheart's
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
Rtssi-a 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
qulring at the Russian embassy, were
Informed that Count Sacha was un
questionably the son of a wealthy
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
be called at a big pawnbroker's and,
mentioning airily that he was in tem
porary difficulties, pledged the diamond
for the small sum of 50.
The next day found Count Sacha
again at Messrs. Sparkle & Shine's.!
His sweetheart, he said, was enchant
ed with the~ 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 difculty and the price of the
second gem would be enormously In

twin diamonds they would have to.
charge ?3.000. Count Sacha shrugged I
his shoulders. The price was stiff, but
he could deny his sweetheart nothing.
Would Messrs. Sparkle & Shine please

The jewelers, being unable to match
the damnd themselves, wrote to the
leading deale and pawnbrokers de

A few days later Count Sacha called
at the pawnbroker's to redeem his dia

remembering the beautiful diamond

he had examied it and found that it
