FANCIES AND POPULAR SUPERSTI
TIONS ABOUT THE OPA1
Facta Concerning the R -mutlrul GemSome
, of the Large end Valuable SpeoloMoa.
The Question or Lottie More or Lees Cn.
The. superstitious dreids and fancies sur
rounding tbe beauttful opal date back to an
cient times, but the cause for placing this
wonderful stone, posseaing such . brilliant
hues, undor tbe ban, aa irall aa tbe origin of
tbe dread, is unknown. Scott, la his "Anas
of Glr-steln," alludes to r,he foollab fancy that
has affected the popularity of a gem possess
ing too glories of the rainbow. Tbe Turks
believe that it falls from hoavon la tbe light
ning's OutU. (t is a matter of history that
the opal waa the favorite genj among the
Romans, and so far from being feared or
looked upon with suspU ion and aversion, it
was eagerly sought for, s it was supposed to
poswss the power of warning against disaster
sud heralding to its ownor tidings of good
fortune, Tbe Arabians ascribed to it super
UHturul powers, their ardent imaginations
wayed and stimulated by tbe flashing play
of ever changing colon, emanating from the
WHERE THE OPjO. IB FOUND.
Tbe records regarding old opiil rolnee are
lost, but it U supposed that tbe ancients de
rived their supply from Arabia and Syria.
Tho fatuous HungurUin inlneti wore not dis
cover! until late lu the Fifteenth century,
sud wero of course unknown to the Romans.
The prl:ii'i;ial iniuee fr mi whence opals are
jbtaiiiftl Uulay are situiited lu Hungary and
Houilurua. The Ainericad opal lacks the
uurdae of the Hungsoian gem, but It is
fully as brilliant, aud withstands atmospheric
iurouds upon the colots quite as welt The
magnificent characteristic of the gem, which
givee it value and renowu, in tbe brilliant
combination of colored reflections which tt
displays, and, when the stoue is held in tbe
sunlight, the Latin philosopher waa correct
In stating that it was ruule up of the glories
of the most precious stoitos.
The gem is found n it ouly to" porcelain
earth, but also to llsiui es and seams of old
Igneous rocks. Quurtz, wbeu flawed tn the
interior, sometimes exhibits a remarkable
Iridescence, aud resembles tbe opal, especially
when viewed at a distaocn. Such specimens
are called Iris. The el jgant iris ornaments
worn by the Empress Josephine were of re
markable brilliancy and the wonder and envy
of the imperial court. She also possessed the
finest opal of modern times, which was only
displayed when arrayed In all the grandeur
of full imperial spleucor. It was Indeed
fitting ornament tor beautiful a woman.
Its flashing rays of light were so powerful
and vivid as to give the appearance of living
flames of fire, and from that it received Its
title "rincendir de TrMe" tbe burning of
Troy. Tho fate of the gem is unknown, hut
with tbe history of the fair owner the most
casual reader Ls familia-.
Cmprea Eugenie had a superstitious dread
amounting to positive s version for the beau
tiful opal Mid tbe stone was a stranger at the
brilliant court It Is ossiblo that Eugenie
may have been Influenced In her hatred of
the gem from Joseph! ieB fondness for the
same, and attributed to the mysterious work
ings of the fiery mineral sotuo subtle, malign
influence that conspired to bring about her
downfall. Out the fact remains Inscribed
upon the pages of history that although the
opal was vigorously banished from Versailles
and the Tuileries, Eugenie fled from Paris
under cover of dar knees, cowering with terror
in the dusty depths of rt shabby vehicle, as
tbe roar of a raging populace reached her
in deep contrast is tie sterling good sense
of England's queen, wh admires and values
the gem to such a degree that she numbers
them among her cboiceit family gifts.
HIGH PRICED GUIS.
The famous opal of h story was that which
was worn in a ring by the Roman senator
Nonius in the days of tbe triumvirate. Ita
size scarcely exceeded that of a basal nut,
yet its beauty and brilliancy rendered It a
marvel among tbe dilettanti of Rome, and It
was valued at nearly 1 1,000,000. Marc Antony,
bearing in mind tbe stxn-iflce of Cleopatra's
incomparable pearl and still enslaved by the
Egyptian queen's lrraistible charms, made
overtures for the opal, intending to present
tt to tbe dusky beauty ; but Nonius refused to
part with bis cherished gem and sought
safety in flight. Tbe extreme beauty and
charm may be estimated when it Is knows
that to a Roman banist jnent was worse than
death. History makes no further mention
of this wonderful opal. It has disappeared
from tbe world's collection of gems, and Its
glories have probably 3 ielded to the destruc
tive effects of time.
The fire opal Is found In its greatest per
fection In the porphyri tlo rocks at Z Una pan,
Mexico. It is generally of a hyacinth red
color, and gleams forth wttb flashes of bril
liant carmine with yel aw and green scintil
lations. The Mexican production surpasses
all other varieties in the intensity and gor
geousneKS of its hues, lut it will not bear ex
posure and tbe sensitive surface soon loess Its
flashing beauties. Tley bring exorbitant
prices in Mexico when sold to tho unwary,
who learn all too soon upon returning to the
haunts of civilization that they had paid
nearly no per cent, too much for the gems.
The Spanish historians, in their marvelous
stories of tbe wouders seen in Mexico at tbe
time of tbe conquest, describe the Image of
tbe mystic idol (Juetya coutl (god of the air),
on the grrat pyramid of Cbolulo, as wearing
a miter waving with plumes of fire, and
which was supposed 1 3 have been produced
by matsos of the fire ofoi.
The colors displayed by tbe opal embrace
all the tints in the tolar rpectrum. The
shades of green, blue, yellow and red are
vivid and clear.
The grandest pecin of tbe gem ever dis
covered wan unearth 1 in the mines of Hun
gary In 1770 and puix hosed by tbe Austrian
government., its w sight was seventeen
ounces, and it was tl.ree and three-quarter
inches In length. It rests hi the imperial
cabinet at Vienna and is valued at $300,000.
The opal is not sold by weight, but its value
depends upon its sUe sud the Intensity of its
fire and combination of colors. An opal half
an inch in diameter rxsy have a value of $0,
and another, no largi r, but possessing brlH
laaoy of hues, may sell readily for $5,000 or
mors. San Froacisoo jCoronlcJa

THAT WONDERFUL COLORED BOY.
Here li 1 Frightful Infant Who Never
forgets What He Usars.. .
A little mite of a blind colored boy stood
on a table in one of the Astor house parlors
yesterday afternoon and put to tbe blush tbe
learning of a lot of gentlemen by a very
meager sample of what he knows. The boy
Is only 3 years and 4 months old.. His name
is Oscar Moore and he was born on a farm In
Waco, Tex. His parents are laboring people,
who have one other boy and two girls. One
evening when Oscar was only a year old he
sat In a chtr listening to his brother and
sisters who were studying the multiplication
table. Oue of them said:
"Four times twelve are fifty-eight"
. "Forty-eight," corrected Oscar.
. His mother had never beard him speak ba
fore, and she began questioning him. Imag
ine her surprise when she found that Oscar
was able to repeat a lot of statements be had
beard at odd times, and was liberally sup
plied with a store of various kinds of infor
mation. His fame spread, and recently Oscar
was turned over to Mr. H. p. N. Gaminel, of
Austin, who will be his guardian until be Is
30 years old.
It soon became clear that tho only remark
able thing about Oscar Is his memory, which
Is capable of retaining everything the boy
bears. He is a well built, manly little fellow,
with a childish voice, and is as full of mis
chief aud fun as boys of his age naturally
are. He enjoyed himoif hugely yesterday,
and was anxious to know If tbe table he
stood upon was a stage, and if be was really
having a reception. Then everybody took
turns in asking Oscar questions. Here is a
mmpleof them, aud of tbe replies, whiob
were given instantly:
"How fast does a rifle ball mover
"One thousand miles an hour. Is this really
"Where Is the largest bell in the world r
"In Moscow, Russia."
"When was slavery abolished V
"I said abolished."
''Oh, tn IS05. I thought you said when was
"What is tbe population of Holland and
the Netherlands f
"Fo' million twelve thousand six hundred
n ninety -three."
"What is the capital of Venezuela f
"Caracas. I like crackers, though."
"How many languages in tbe world f
"Two thousand seven hundred and fifty."
"How many bones In a man's bodyf"
, "Three hundred and eight I know how
many there are in a woman SOS."
"How many square feet in an acreT
"In a nigger I Two."
"In an acref
"Forty-three thousand live hundred'a
"What is the population of tbe United
"Oh, I've got the hlctrups."
"What city has a population of 808, 185r
"Who was the second president of the
United States r
"The twenty-third f
"Oscar Moore. Ho! bal heel"
Little Oscar grew sarcastic, and asked:
"You are sure that's the right answer, are
jour On being assured that it was, he
would reply i "Well, X guess so."
Oscar counted from onVto ten tn Chinese,
Spanish, Latin, French and Welsh.
"Count from one to ten In Danish."
"I can't," he answered. "Pll count from
one to twenty; there is no ten in Danish."
Then Oscar song several songs in Fig11
and one in German. He is strong on dates,
the names and population of all the cities In
the world, tbe weight of any given quantity
of com, flour, wheat, copper, silver, gold
and Iron, and hundreds of other things that
not oue man in 10,000 knows. He enjoys
answering questions. It seams to require no
mental effort at aQ. Mr. Oammel doss not
yet know what be will do with Oscar, but It
Is likely that he will be launched into public
Ufa. New York Sun.
We read much about man's artificial wants,
and economists often busy themselves teach
Ing people bow little they can get along with.
Man's actual needs are generally determined
by his surroundings and the period In which
he Uvea. A savage who only eats roots would
accuse another of extravagance whom he
caught gnawing a crab apple. . If he were an
economist be would declare that crab apples
were an artificial want, and tnirt. a se
vere rebuke to the offender for his shameful
waste, If he didst kill him on the spot . A
traveler who visited one of tbe Islands of the
South Pacific, where the natives go naked,
gave one of them a paper collar, and when
he fastened it on his neok and went strutting
about, the Jealousy of his fellow citizens was
so great that they attacked him furiously,
and be was obliged to tear the collar up and
distribute the fragments among them to ap
pease their wrath. A paper collar was an
artificial want, but they went for.it Texas
. Tbe throb of a breaking heart, the cry at
unavailing remorse, came to me the other
day in an envelope. It's a little Indefinite,
but tbe writer hints at a condition, and the
theory can be worked out by the reader:
Euro Ecditob: Will you please put this in your

Curious Italian Superstitious.
St John's day in Italy is thus observed at
Revello, Italy. The people hare have a curi
ous superstition connected with this eve of
St John's day, which Is observed by many;
they repeat their rosaries until midnight, and
then look out, firmly believing that they wfll
see Herodias and her daughter pass, riding on
a fiery plank, tbe daughter saying: "Mother,
why did you say ltr and the mother, "Daugh
ter, why did you do itf" and then plunge Into
the sea ; the reason why, after St John's day,
the temperature of the sea rises, and bathing
begins. New York Bun.
