Widow of Guatemala's Assassinated President De
, tained at San Francisco.
United States Customs Officials Seired Her Famous Cll -c!ior of
Jewels and Demanded $60,003 Duty She Wore Then on oate
Occasions and Everybody Thought They Were Vorih COO.
M VIE. ALGERIE REYNA BARRIOS.
The customs officials a: San Francisco who bal demands 1 $60,000 dJt on her collec
tion of diamonds ard other pmi were astoniihed at the discovery that mot o them
a'e "Barrios Diamonds." nd t iat the entira collection did not cost $20,OJO. Mme.
Uarrior is the widow of a former president of Guatemala, and her jewels were con
Hded hv everybody to be the finest in the worlJ. -
to Our Store and See the Genuine Barrios Dia
mondsthe Kind Mme. Barrios Wore.
Why people continue to pry extravagant prices for diamonds is more than we can understand.
Anybody who will read the following special dispatch telegraphed from San Francisco to the lead
ing newspapers of this city will readily understand that it is no longer necessary to pay enormous
sums for diamonds:
"San Francisco. UTarrh 16. Mme. Algerie Reyna Barrios' f?mrns diamond ne l!: e. v. hi h sb has worn
on state occasions in Guatemala and at social functions in New York, is net o mprr.'.l -jf i,i Jvprir ; :! diamonds
afterall.but of Darrios Diamonds. Many other grn:s in what was thought to b3 o'ir of t'j'::.!: t rollec-
tions of jewels in the world are but clever imitations. This astounding discovtry v.-as in:i 1c by Ci:?to:n House
experts, who examined thrrn for the purpose of fixing their value."
""""Mme. Barrios, the widow of the second Barrios, President of Guatemala, assassinated, like
his uncle, two years ago, arrived in San Prancisco recently. The Custom Kou.;e officials damanded
that $60,000 duty he paid on Mme. Barries' jewels. She dTTiurr?d, clr.imir th:t the g.ns vere
bought in New York by her late husband's agents.
The Custom House experts examined the jewels after Mme. Barrios had failed to establish
her statement by documentary proof, and the amazing discovery was rmde that the jewels of Mme.
Barrios, reported to be one of the wealthiest women in the world, are, many cf them, only "Barrios
Diamonds." The jewels upon which 60,000 duty was demanded are not worth $20,000. Expert?
thought the jewels were worth more than a million dollars.
Now, what do you say to that? f Barrios Diamonds are good enough for a president's wife
to wear on state occasions, don't you think they are good enough for you?
If expert jewelers, selected by the United States Government to appraice such articles, think
Barrios Diamonds are the high-priced kind., do you think any ordinary citizen would detect the
difference? We defy them to distinguish Barrios Diamonds from the kind sold in exclusive jewel
ry stores every day for fancy prices. Don't go astray in such an important matter as buying dia
monds. Come to our store and get the Barrios Diamonds.
