A Literary Curiosity.
TLo fallowing remarkable little poem is
a contribution to the San Francisco Times
from the pen of Mrs. II. A. Denning. The
reader will; notice that each line is a quo
tution from some one of the standard au
thors of England ami America,
tho .result' of a year's laborious search
among the voluminous writings of thirty
eight leading poets of tho past and present.
Tho number of each line refers to its au

A Diamond Story.
Nearly a century ago, an old gentleman
iu'tlic lower part of Virginia, picked up a
stone to throw at a rabbit ; it glittered in
the siln, and the old man concluded to
take it home for his children to play with.
Shortly affer, tho family physician hap
pened to see the stone, and offered six dol
lar* for it, but tho family would not sell
it. Subsequently a trusty friend about to
visit Europe was given the stone, and upon
reaching London, ho consulted a noted
lapidary named Nox, who after examining
it declared that 'all America is uot able to
buy that stone.'
A Jew, whom the trusty friend consul
ted afterwards, warned him uot to come
out with that stone again without guard,
as he would he robbed were it knowu he
had it. Tho friend returned home and de
livered up the gem Some time afterward
a party of Marylanders offered for the
stone in lands and negroes tho equivalent
of one hundred thousand dollars, and was
refused. The old uiaudied, and the stone
lus remained in the family for several gen
erations, and recently, so the story
it came into the possession of Hr. Dough
erty, of Mcchanicsburg, Pennsylvania,
wose children arc legal heirs. It is claimed
to be a diamond of first quality, and weighs
four hundred carats, whilst that of the
Rajah of Mattau, said to bo tho largest in
the world, weighs only three hundred and
sfatty -seven carats. Tho stone lias been
sent away to pass the scrutiny of thc*blcst
scientific men of the country, and the Har
risburg State Guard, which is responsible
for the story, of which the above is au out
line, soys, "there is no reason to believe
but that America can boast of the largest
diamond in the world."
