When I came to Boston as a studi
two years ago, I little expected to
living on Beacon street at the end
my course. My sojourn in Now Ei
land began very modestly. My ro
had been arranged for before I I
home, and I had consented to share
with some unknown young woman,
order to lessen expenses. For wee
that individual occupied my mind
the almost entire exclusion of ever
thing else. I conceived of her as e
ample of every type common to V
human race and then as a composi
personage typical of nothing. (
course, she would be a Nortlerner, at
I felt in my Southern soul that n
provincialisms would get the disciplii
they needed.

Miss Latham sat in the arm chair b
the window, also with an open letter
her mother's-in her hand. She wa
very still, and I walked over to wher
she sat. As I reached her, I saw

talk, and I soon understood the patho

forbade Dick to write to us, and moth

3 discovery of a diamond field that
11 be a fitting successor to the (
usolidated Mining Company's lands
South Africa. Of all lands in which
amonds have been, and are being
111d, the one in which a discovery of
liamond mine or district would prove j
greatest surprise to experts is the
ited States.
L'his is not due to any absence of
ive American diamonds, as authen
finds have been made for over
ty years at least, and will no doubt u
itinue, but to the fact that all dis- a
,eries heretofore have been of single n
nes, and the maxim, " not twice in ii
same place,'' is becoming to be ~(
ieved as applying more certainly to in
mouds than it ever did to hlightning. n
t only have the diamonds so far
lid been isolated stones, but the
ilogical conditions of the places of i
overy have in many instances been b
h as to show the diamond crystal to b
a stranger in the neighborhood, or t<
ast show nothing to indicate the
scuce of crystallized carbon. ii
)iamond finds have conic from no iz
or two sections, but have extended li
r a large territory on the Atlantic I
Pacific slopes and in the North w
itral States, on the surface or in c
e material and among deposits of ta
vol or earth. All the discoveries t
e been of sullicient importance to
ite the interest of the geologist ce
mineralogist, as well as to cause h<
rent locally and in the scientific q
.d, but never have they been large tl
ugh to warrant any speculation m
ii a business standpoint. In fact, b-'
ging trom the discoveries of the
t half century, there is no reason to
teve that diamonds can or will ever
numbered among the important a
ducts of the United States. Never
less, with each newV find, hope k
ings in the breast of the finder that t
will be a second Cecil Rhodes or h1

he last diamuond known to have b

ked up on land owned by B. F.
(18011, five miles from Columbus, a
, early last November. On Mr.
d(on's farm is a fld about tenI
es in extent full of rocks of all de

Hudson (lid, and in reply received b
rd that, tihe stone was a diamond, 0
which an offor of $80 was made. f'
this Mr. Hudson01 agreed, and lhe b
eived a check for the amount. y
L'his diamond caused1 great excitec- a
nt in the vicinity of Columbus, and a'
ny were the reports of unexpected '

shown being almost intense. Tli

"'ILathai'l" said the nurse, " What

be by a Dr. Latham."
of At the words " Dr. Latham," Jean's Pr
ig- hand in mine gave a convulsive clasp, Oi

it too, had become almost too excited to

ie general excitement, was too much for na
Jean. She fainted, and fifteen min- tic
w utes were spent in reviving her. But 8i,
,- in those minutes I had formed a plan coi
of action. I must go to New York col
is and stop Dr. Latham from going to sto
'e Europb. In Jean's weakened condi- thc
f- tion, I knew the disappointment of los- bel
c ing what she had sought for two years, dim
d and had at last almost grasped, would Nc
i- be fatal. When she became fully con- fou
s. scious, I said: ge(
