NEW YORK LETTER New York. Jan. 7. Into one of the most expensive and exclusive jewelry snops on film avenue there came a wonlau of perhaps 45, and a girl of abou 20, undoubtedly her daughter. Mother wanted to give daughter a ring for her birthday, and desired daughter to make her own selection. The jeweler brought out tray after tray of costly settings rubies, emer alds, sapphires, turquoises, opals, dia monds. He expatiated upon them, one after the other the latest, the most unique, the most tasteful, etc. They all bored the girl to distraction. None received more than a petulant frown or a word of disapproval. Finally the jeweler displayed an exquisite combination of diamonds and emeralds. The mother took it from him and held it up pleadingly to her child. "Don't you like that, dear?" she coaxed. The girl eyed the bauble Indiffer ently. (HS'price was $2,600.) Then, as though tired of the episode, she languidly drawled: "All right, mother dear, I'll take that." The jeweler courteously asked her to' remove her glove, so that he might measure her finger. The frown- re;- j turned to her face. "Oh"; I can't do that," she protested: The merchant ventured to urge. The mother added a timid plea. The girl rose, greatly annoyed. "It's alto gether too much bother," she said, turning toward the door. "Some day," murmured her mother to the jeweler, "when she's feeling like it, I'll persuade her to step in and have her finger meas ured."

' The woman- with the umbrella quickened her pace and offered a share of her overhead orotection to the stranger, who ac'cepted it with a nod and smile, but said nothing, till the corner was reached and they stood together at the curb. Then she looked up Into her companion's face and whispered, with a little pressure of her arm: "Shay, lesh have drink, while wait for car, huh?" "And she .was just as nice-looking as I am, and she walked as straight as could be!" said the other woman, when she told the story.
