by chemical nrtillce are almost microscopic,
and therefore practically worthier. At the

ninde to iiirroa.se their size, though in vaiu.
Apparently the production of diamonds big
enough to be worth anything could only be
accomplished by forces and element working
on the mighty scale of nature's laboratory
when the worl.l was lieing rendered out of
chaos into habitable shape."

"A few. No real gem, however, except the
diamond, hit been fairly reproduced exactly
as it is found in nature, though imitations
are plentiful enough. The precious stones
made by the chemist, if such they may be
called, are new inventions to the lnpulary.
Many of them are very beautiful. Tuis pur
ple one you have asked about, f.r instance,
is lovely. It has beeu named the'violanedu
cap,' and is as attractive a jewel as many nat
ural ones four times its price. French chem
ists are the great experts in this braucb of
manufacture, and their inventions are usually
kept secret. Nome of the artificial gems tbey
make are doubtless pretty costly to produce,
as for that matter are th. microscopic dia
monds, which are as expensive to turn out as
good tug ones in the market."

or three years ago certain French chemists
claimed that they had discovered a pruci

the lalioratory by fusing together small ruby
sparks, such as can Iw bought for almost
nothing. If you will remember that tha
value of the ruby is nearly double that of th.
diamond, the color and quality otherwise
being first rate, yon can imagine what an
agitation such an announcement occasioned
among the deuler. Nor was the announce
ment altogether without truth, as appeared
from the reirt made on the subject by th.
celebrated lToressor triedel, of the French
institute, who said that he found the chemi
cal composition, density, crystalline form
and refractive poWrr of the artificial spec!
mens to correspond in every resiwct with th.
natural ruby. The only difference he could
ftodas, slight variation in the shape of
the tiny air bubbles. However, th. dealers
threatened to prosecute any one for fraud
who ventured to issue tha artificial rubies as
real ones, and, inasmuch as their combina
tion is very rich and powerful and th. laws
against selling counterfeit jewels for actual
one is very strict iu France, the fused rubies
have never got upon the market. It was a
great scheme to mak. a $10,01) ruby out of
. worth of srks."
"The "spurts' you speak of are real rubies,
"Oh I yes. That is the trouble aUut rubies.
There ure plenty of them, but very few good
sized ones. The greatest ruby fields in the
world are those of Furmah, here the natives
have for centuries been digging for tbem in
the most primitive and therefor, most un
profitable manner. They are fouud in quan

"There used to lw wunderf ul accounts of
the jars full of large rubies which Kiug Tbee
bttw of llul lnah had in his palace at Manda
lay, but not many were found by the British
when they l.siled the city. Perhaps they
were carried off and hidden away by the na
tives. "Curiously enough, the anticipation of th.
finding of these hoards of th. king by th.
English soldiers had quite a depressing effect
tion the ruby market, a lowering in th.
value of the gem Ixiug feared as a result of a
sudden throwing of great supplies before the
purchasing public. Rubies are also largely
obtained in I eylou, here the uutlves make a
business of buiiltn; for tbem iu the streams
that comedown from the huge cone of moun
tains In the central wrt of the island, where
it has Iiwu tupsied for centuries that a great
matrix of rubies existed above the clouds,
from whence those found in the rivers are
washed don. Nor Is su-h a theory entirely
without reason, though nobody has been able
to find the matrix yet. When discovered, it
will afford a profitable opportunity for th.
use of a few unds of dynamite."

you know, the best imitations Isring made of
hollow glu tieails lined with transparent wax
and scales taken from living fish. The pearl
is cmeny composed or carbonate of lime, with
films of animal membrane between its manv
layers. These membrane films becoming dry
gives the psarl its hardness. The substance
of tbe pearl is a slimy secretion of the oyster,
which is ordinarily deposited upon the in
terior surface of the shell, forming what Is
caileil 'mother of pearl.' li rains of sand or
other foreign bodies, lodging within th.
shell, produce an irritation of the tissues
which causes the deptwt of a pearly matter
around them for tbe oysters protection.
This matter is deposited, layer after layer,
until the pearl is formed. By tbe artificial
Introduction of flinty particles pearls can be
made to grow. The Chinese in this manner
com)el a certain kind of fresh water mussel

things within the shells and have them

Indian Scalps In Demand.
A Monroe street hair dealer: "If you know

scalps, like buffalo heads, are becoming
mighty scarce. You never can account for
people's tastes. Now, about tbe last thing in
th, world that some people want is an Indian
scalp, and yet there are people who want
just that sort of curiosity. I had an Indian
belt not long ago which had nine scalps hung
to it, and I sold it to a man on the north side
for $33t, I bav. a bunch of hair bere it Isnt
a scalp, as there is no skin attached to it, just
a handful, as it were. It is worth t In
dians aro not scalping as much a they used
to, and that is why scalps are high. Iu fact
everything which Indiaus used to make is be
coming scarcer and more valuable. Take the
common Indian basket that used to sell for
$3 a dozen, now you cant get one for that
money. There are two reasons for this. One
Is that travelers buy them first hands as curi
osities and pay the Indians just what tbey
ask. Another reason is tbat since the gov
