THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1913,"
DAY IN DAVENPORT
Find Lott Cameos. A collection of
40 cameos, three of the number over
2,000 years old and valued at $1,900,
which was thought to have been stolen
five years ago, was discovered in an
out of the way drawer by Dr. C. T.
Lindley, the owner. Five years ago
Dr. Lindley came to his office. As he
entered the door he looked toward
the table, where the night before he
had left the collection of gems. The
table was empty and the gems could
not be found. A search was immedi
ately Instituted by the doctor for the
lost collection. Practically every place
tout the right one was looked Into, but
the gems could not be located. Finally
after everything was done to Quietly
discover the missing jewels, the police
were notified. Nothing ever resulted
from their search. All gem collectors
and art critics of note were furnished
with a description of the gems in the
lost collection. Art circles throughout
the country were talking on the miss
ing collections, and looking for them,
but they were never discovered. One
of the strange features In the missing
gem case that most puzzled the police
and those working in an effort to lo-
ca'.e the jewels, was that noDe of the
gems were ever offered for 6&le, and
never appeared. The rooBt valuable
of the lost gems were listed and could
net be sold for anything near their
value without being known. The en
tire collection was valued at a trifle
over J1,9CK. Among the collection
were three which alone were worth
several hundred dollars. These three
jewels are each over 2.000 years old.
Other gems In the collection ranged,
from 1,000 years old down to a few
