A Story of Dlnnionds.
The Prescotl "Courier" gives the
following history of tho diamonds re

ment ry.tliu remnant of a $12,000 lot
of these precious gems which are
blended with tho history of tho woman
owuer said to havo been robbed while
she was drunk. She kept a house of
ill-reputu in Tucson in 1880, cleared
over $12,000 in one 3 ear and was'iiuik
ing money fast. She took a trip to
S.m Francisco and purchased tho $12,
000 diamond cluster, which became as
famous as "The Moonstone," and like
that accursed gem. seemed to carry ill
fortune with them, for from thedateof
their purchase bad luck followed the
purchaser, and through all her ops ami
downs of fortune her diamond cluster
grew smaller. She married and went
to Albtiquclquc, where more diamonds
fell fiom the cluster, until less than
$2,000 woith wcio left.
With these she came to Preseott.
Utlt this seeming Clliseof the moon

of (he fated cluster, and 0110 day, so
tho story goes, miller the baletul glare
