Comparative Valuea of Gema.
Scientist Rpcak lightly of cole red
gems aa alumina found in nature, crys
tallized and colored with oxido of iron,
nnd "valued at enormous sums." It
hardly raises tho moro precious in gen
eral esteem to know that tho oniondd,
ruby, sapphire, nnd amethyst aro almost
tho same chemically, or thftttho emerald
nnd tho aquamarine only differ in color,
tho former being absolutely priceless,
while tho latter has no determinate valuo.
Pearls only aro sold by tho grain. All
other precious stones aro sold by tho
carat, which weighs four grains. Dia
monds weighing less than a carat aro
moro valuable than rubies, sapphires,
or emeralds of tho samo weight- But
all the colored stones exceeding a carat
aro more valuable than diamonds, und
the difference in valuo increases very
rapidly with inereaso of size. If a ruby
is very perfect, and of a rich, dark color,
it commands an extravagant price. A
tine three-carat diamond might be worth
from iu'OO to $1,000, according to quali
ty, whilo a perfect jMiree-carat ruby
would find a purchaser nt from $3,000
to $5,000. Rubies weighing four carats
have beeu sold in Eastern ci lies for$10,
000. Seientilio writers class sapphires
nnd rubies simply as sapphires. Tho red
sapphire is a ruby, and tho blue rubv a
sapphire. The present demand for lino
rubies exceeds the supply. It is not ex
actly 'known where thoso camo from
which are now finding there way into
the market, but it is presumed that many
urn taken from old ornaments, in family
collections. Sapphires aro very rare and
scarcely less valuable than rubies. They
mako an exquisite appearance, properly
arranged, and having small diamonds
ns foils. They are apt to show a dull
color at night, and those arc consequent
ly most sought after which sparkle by
gaslight. Largo und perfect stones aro
of fabulous valuo. Tho Baroness l'.tir-dctt-CouMs
has a lino sapphire, consid
ered worth $l(i,()00. Sapphires and em
eralds are rarely set alone, but with
smaller stones, commonly diamonds,
which throw their beauty into relief.
Kxpcrt jewelers are not agreed as to
whether thn sapphire or tho emerald is
the more valuable, but tho last, perhaps,
maintains a greater popularity. Its valuo
increases rapidly with its si.e. The wifo
of a railroad king purchased a U'ti-eara!;
emerald a dozen years ago for $.r,U00,
which is now worth probably $'.'0,000.
It is worn in a ring as a Holiiaire, and
needs no foil to enhance itscxtraordinacy
beauty. There are said to be many ru
bies und enieraliLs extent worth "from
!?'000 to $5,iM), or even more, which
aro in the possession of connoisseurs.
Forestry is beginning to eivgago tho
attention of certain localities in the Now
World, but in tho Old World tho forests
that remain are guarded with jealous
caro, and afford largo revenues to their
possessors. Tho Slate forests of Franco
amount to 3,0H),0O0 acres, it is said, and
yield an annual revenuo of $5,000,000.
Mnny of tho provinces and departments
also are large forest proprietors. Ger
many lias, ubout 85,000,000 acres in for
est, nearly ono-thirdof which belongs to
the State, one-sixth to the communes
and somewhat loss than ono-half to pri

tvies bavo large forest areas, wiUi cor
respondingly largo revenues.
Tbo "PariBc Ooastor."
A gentleman whose jdaeeof residenco
is somewhat vaguely ((escribed as "tho
Pacific Coast" has been cutting a wido
swath in New York hotel society
through the great variety and matchless
brilliancy of thn diamonds which he dis
plays with ingenious profusiou upon his
Tho women of general society havo
long since been obliged to yield proeed
stieo to tho lady boarders of thn fash
ionable metropolitan hotels in the mat
ter of diamond wearing, and among
men, since the "high-lotted'1 gamblers,
as Guiteau would call them, havo aban
doned diamond shirt studs, hotel clerks
may be said to havo a monopoly of this
elegant and expensive ndornment.
Judge, then, of tho astonishni'Mit of tho
clerks of one of tbo leading New York
hohtclries the other morning when the
Pacific Coaster appeared upon the out
side of the counter wearing fourteen dia
monds, tho smallest of which w:w larger
than the largest of tho collection dis
played on tho inside of the counter. Tho
subordinates sank back in awe while the
leading day clerk, who felt his import
ance gradually sinking down almost to
the level of ordinary manhood, proceed
ed to "room" the stranger in tho best
vacant apartment of tho house, instead
of giving him the worstin aeeordanco
with immemorial custom.
But the discoinliUtro of tho clerk was
no triuinnh for tho gentleman from Ne
vada. 1 tu sighed for greater conquests,
and even beyond the Sierras ho had
heard of the lady boarders who partook
of lht 1 1 o'clock breakfast in their most
fascinat ing wrappers nnd their most, gor
geous solilaires. They were his game,
und precisely at 11 lio appeared upon
tho tlireshhold of thn breakfast room
wilh a $5,000 stud in his shirt-front, cuff
buttons of equal value, stones of all sizes
nml of tho first walr on his fingers and
with Ids long board carefully twisted and
drawn through an enormous cluster
rill, which to prevent it slipping off,
was securely lied In position with ar
The gentleman from thu Pacific coast
walked deliberately to a s."at, glancing
neil her to right nor left upon tiw ruin
which he wrought. Tbo lady boarders
surveyed with critical und astonished
eves this invader of their rights, and as
tlieV reluctantly recognized the genuine
Itesh of his Jewels the knives and forks
dropped from their nerveless lingers and
one by onn they fled tho scene. At last
accounts they wero holding a caucus in
parlor A and discussed in strictly tin
purliameiilury language a resolution to
tint effect that this diamond busixiow Is

Tricky Devices in Gambling. '
Ono of tho newest tools is the poker
ring, an ingenious little contrivance for,,
marking the cards while playing, in a
systematic ' manner, so that in a half
hour ono can tell each card as well by
the buck as by tho face. Although it is
not generally known, it is now iu use by
a few of the oldest and best professional
players in tho country. It is no secret
thai in tho gaming houses marked-back
playing cards are used. The pattern on
the back seems innocent enough until
held at a certain ungle under the light,
and then the difference between cards
may bo seen. The greenhorn cannot
U:ll the pack from fair cards in common
use, but tho professional can tell pre
cisely the cards his opponent holds.
There are loaded dice, which aro ruada
the exact imitation of ordinary dice.
Then there is the spy, a reflector about
tho size of a half-dollar, which, it is
said, can bo used with perfect safety
either on tho table or on tho knee.
As for strippers," another device in
cards, a gambler says: "Tho benefit of
thoso cards cannot be estimated only in
one way, and that is by the amount of
money your opponent has got, for you
are certain to get it, whether it is $10
or $10,000; tho heavier tha stakes the
sooner you break him. "The bug" is a
device for withdrawing from the pack a
number stS cards from which the player
can make up a hand to suit. St. Louis
