That, approxi mately, was $1,375 for the sapphire. But the man to whom he sold it re sold it just a few weeks later for £9 Othe carat or for approximately $2,250 for the sapphire. "There has been a very substantial reason for this tendency toward the sapphires by the people seeking to purchase gems. The prices of pearls and diamonds have soared to such a point that carrying them in large quantities means a heavy risk for the jeweler should new fields be discov ered of such size as probably to force the prices down. Under such a con-j dition high-class jewelers endeavor to turn their customers' attention to oth er desirable but less expensive colored, gems and in that line they could have! found nothing more beautiful than the Montana sapphire. After all, the sap -1 phire is much like the blue diamond, and the ones who like jewels are com ing more and more to realize what elegant gems the sapphires are.

BRYAN IS A QUICK DRESSER. Traveling Experience Has Taught Him to Clothe Himself in Three Minutes. William J. Bryan, the secretary of state, has traveled so much that he has become an expert in how to travel. In his many campaigns he has acquired the habit of being able to sleep between stations, but he never could sleep unless he went to bed with his everyday clothes off, so that he had to hurry to put them on when the next station where he was to speak arrived. The secretary gave a good exhibi tion of his celerity on this score, ac cording to a traveler, as he came back to Washington last week from New York, where he had made an address, He had spent the night in a railroad car berth. As he neared Washington he sprang out of his berth and it was noticed that he was fully dressed three minutes after that, to the great sur prise and admiration of those occupy ing the car with him.—Wash.

Cologne, Germany, June 3.—Cancer has been proved to be a contagious disease caused by a parasite and it can be healed, according to Dr. Otto Schmidt, a cancer expert, who re ported at yesterday's meeting of the medical society here the results of his investigations into the origin and the possibility of curing cancer. Dr. Schmidt declared that he had proved through experiments and had confirmed his findings by means of repeated tests that the disease was a contagious one, brought about by the presence of a parasite which he had discovered in cancerous growths. He said he had produced a vaccine with which he had healed numerous seri ous cases of cancer. His treatment, he says, brings about immunization against further attacks. The immuni zation is accomplished by a serum ob tained fronT'aniinals in the usual man ner. Dr. Schmidt requested the medical society to appoint a commission to test his methods and promised to place his services at the disposal of the commissioners. I ( ■ I | NOT COLDEST AT THE POLES. Human. Beings Endure Climatic Ex tremes Better Than Plant Life. Man may with more or less discom fort endure the climate of any part of the globe whereon he lives. On the other hand, plants and ani mals cannot exist in temperatures far higher or lower than those to which they have become accustomed. But man moves from one extreme to the other with, generally speaking, but small physical discomfort. Explorers visit the sands of Africa and the ice fields of the north, returning to their normal environments with, in some cases, a distinct improvement in phy sical condition. Man inhabits pretty nearly every part of the earth, with the exception of the immediate vicin ity of the poles. Men of science contend that the low .... .jet temperatures at the earths sur face are not found directly at the poles, but at some distance to the south of the north pole and at some distance to the north of the south ! pole. Then, too, it is claimed, the greatest degree of heat is not, as might naturally be supposed, to be en countered at the equator, but at some distance to the north, and to the south of that line. The records and statistics show that the coldest place on earth is in Siberia. The lowest temperature ever recorded in the open air was 90 de grees below zero (Fahrenheit) at | Werchajansk, central Siberia, on Jan. i 15, 1885. The highest temperature : is set down at 124 degrees above zero j (Fahrenheit), registered in Algeria, northern Africa, on July 17, 1897. These records of extreme heat and extreme cold afford a range of tem perature covering the whole inhabita ble world of 21 u4egrees, or 2 degrees more than from zero to the boiling point. People who inhabit these places of extreme heat and cold are tound to be exceptionally healthy and live to a ripe old age. In our own country the extreme range of heat and cold is not so great but one may live in comparative com fort in any section; yet the same con ditions apply to animal and plant life here as prevail throughout the world. Animals and plants that survive the winters of the south could not endure the winters of the north. The greatest of the extremes of heat and cold in the United States are found in the western states, from the Dakotas and Montana southward to Texas and Arizona. The temperature in the northwest in the winter months frequently drops to 30 degrees or 40 degrees below zero and occasionally runs below 60 degrees, while the heat of summer, in the central west and southwest, touches 100 degrees or more. Regardless of such extremes, the climatic conditions throughout the entire Rocky mountain range are de lightful for ten months of the year. The most equable temperature throughout the year in our country is found along the seacoast. Nearly two thirds of the entire population dwell in seacoast cities. BALKAN STATES' WAR. Unexpected Situation Which Gives Excuse for Renewing Hostilities. Philadelphia Press: The deplorable breach in the Balkan league appears to have assumed a startling phase. Servia is reported to have sent vir tually an ultimatum to Bulgaria de manding a revision of the treaty en tered into by the allies before making war on Turkey. Greece is ready to make common cause with Servia if necessary. What Servia demands and Greece has already demanded is permanent possession of all the Mace donian territory that they' have con quered and occupied. This would give Servia the very important city of Monastir, while Greece would retain Saloniki and the surrounding coun try. Bulgaria's claim to these portions of Macedonia, where the conquest was accomplished without her aid, is based upun a treaty made between the allies last year. The Balkan league was formed for purposes of conquest. Years of preparation had gone to get ting ready for a combined onslaught on Turkey. So confident were the allies of success that the Turkish provinces in Europe were apportioned among them. Bulgaria, aB the most powerful member of the Balkan league, claimed and was awarded Thrace and Macedonia. The unforeseen course of the war allowed the Servians unaided to cap ture Monastir, the second city of the Turkish empire, and the Greeks with the aid of their fleet to make an easy conquest of Saloniki. Bulgarian suc cesses in Thrace, including the cap ture of Adrianople in the final on slaught, were greatly aided by Servia. For these reasons the Servian govern ment insists that the treaty entered .into last summer should be modified and amended in order that Servia may retain territory conquered in Mace jdonia. Greece has already advanced a similar claim. Russia is the agreed arbiter under the treaty, but Russian interests are greatly involved in the decision. Some outside power is believed to be be hind Servia. At any rate the perplex ing Macedonian question, which has threatened the peace of Europe for thirty years, has assumed a new and most dangerous aspect. It must not . - . „ Serbs arehereditary^^nemles^nd that Greece is the hereditary enemy of both.

Smart Gowns Have a "Scrappy" Look, So Say Men Commentators. Kansas City Star: "What makes the women's clothes look so scrappy, these days?" asked a mere husband, ignorant of the marvelous amount of brain matter that has been put into tlie creation of the present up-to-date "confection" in women's gowns. The man's naive comment was not far wrong. No one can deny that they look pieced together. A few yards of plain material, a yard or two of figured and the rest of lace. Near ly every other fashionable frock of the season is a combination of two three kinds of stuff. Even the youngsters are g oing through this remnant period, much to the delight of the economical woman. Of course, not all the smartest clothes are pieced together from the bargain counters. Some cloths and patterns are deliberately "cut up." But it's a safe guess that the heart of many a thrifty shopper has lately been made to dance by the finding of a pretty piece of flowered stuff she wanted for a particular dress. Stand at the counters and watch the women pounce upon these odds and ends. Sometimes very handsome ma terials are picked up. How are they used? Why haven't you seen a plain gown of chatneuse or crepe meteor or pongee with one of the wide sashes of flowered silk in - say—mauve pink and black tied about the waist, Balkan fashion, around the normal waistline, then crossed and drawn around and tied at the side Sometimes the sleeves are made of it, too. Then again, the_tunic is flowered sash, skirt and sleeves plain. Little tots have collar, lower sleeves and a hem or belt and half sleeves of flowered material. The possibilities of remnants boundless and the "scrappiness" costumes the particular fad of season. Weather Not Grouch Cause. America* Magazine: Good days and bad days exist only in your own head. The weather has nothing to do with it. Each day is what you make it for yourself. Bad weather is only an un fortunate opinion. Suppose it is raining pitchforks. You get wold that your salary has been doubled or that a forgotten uncle has left you a million dollars. What do you care about the weather then? Or suppose the person you love is dying. Unexpectedly a turn for the better comes. The doctor says your dear one will live. What if it is hot ter than Tophet? It is a good day, a great day, a happy day. It's what you think and feel about it that makes each day what it is. You, within yourself, can make each day, every day, a good day. Put down in the notebook of your soul the poet Runeperg's thought: "Each day is a life." When you get up in the morning throw back your shoulders, take a deep breath. . Meet the new day like a man. Say to yourself: "Another day—another life!" For all we know it may be the only day we'll ever have. Let's make it the best day we can. Let's strive to see that it is a day worth while. Let's move a step forward in our work. Let's do all the good we can. Let's get all the happiness we can—today. Right now is the only time you can contro'. Yesterday is a record. To morrow is a secret. Today is yours, is. mine. Imperfections That Endear. Philadelphia Ledger: Who would care to live with the ideal man or woman? What we want is "a crea ture not too bright or good for hu man nature's daily food"—not a cold, marmoreal statue, a pale, angelic paragon whose bloodless perfection is source of irritation to ordinary fallible mortality. The goodness of Agnes in Dicken's "David Copper field" will irritate some readers in the same degree that the doll-like pretty futility of Dora offends them and proved monotonous to David. It is the woman or the man of countless appealing imperfections who is most cared for. And George Mere dith finds that "beauty that makes holy earth and heaven may have faults from head to feet." It is sometimes good for the object of hero (or heroine) worship to be idealized—it spurs one to attain the heights to have someone believe him better than he is. But ft is, on the whole, more comfortable for each of us if our friends cherish no illusions regarding us. The best of men and women do not wish to be thought so. They are the first the disparage exag gerated and profuse laudation. Their humanity will not let them realize what they are. Where others see them as saints un canonized, martyrs uncrowned, they are painfully aware of frailty. They are the last to seek to be idealized or idolized just because they are the worthiest.
