The local druggist is naturally slow to recommend a remedy for any dis ease; he will make such recommenda tion as a rule, only after he has been thoroughly convinced; he Is not look ing merely for one sale but must have permanently the confidence of his customers. Perhaps no remedy in the druggists stock has been more widely endorsed by druggists themselves than the specific eczema cure, oil of winter green, thymol and glycerine, as com pounded in D. D. D. Prescription, i Among hundreds of letters from prominent druggists we quote a few: Mr. Higginson of the Hlgginson Drug Co., Wichita, Kansas, says: We have a number of very enthusi astic people who have been cured by D. D. D. Prescription. These cured patients do as much to increase the sales as any advertising. You cannot make your advertising too strong, as we are ourselves enthusiastic in push ing the goods." The Voegeli Bros. Drug Co., Minne apolis, Minn., write: "The remedy is giving splendid sat isfaction and our customers are doing much to advertise its merits." T. P. Taylor & Co., Louisville, Ky., says: "We have noted remarkable cures with D. D. D. and have had a number of customers tell they would not take $500.00 for the cure effected in their case." AVolff-Wilson Drug Co., St. Louis, Mo., state: "We believe D. P. D. Prescription to be a medicine of great merit- A. Baur, Terre Haute, Ind., (estab lished 31 years), writes: "To all people suffering from any form of skin disease, the D. D. D. rem edy has my unqualified endorsement. During my extensive experience as a druggist it is the only eczema remedy on the market that gives satisfaction. I personally know of several remark able cures." This sort of endorsement from high grade druggists is the very best en dorsement that any remedy can have. It shows that not only one or two but many customers of a drug store are reporting to the druggist the ' favor able results with this eczema remedy. For sale by all draggista.

Dr. C. W. Andrews, of the geologi cal department of the British Museum, has started on a scientific expedition to Christmas Island, in the Indian Ocean. Ten years ago the island was uninhabited. Since then it has been opened up, owing to its guano depo sits, and there are now a number of persons there. The object of the pre sent visit is to ascertain what effect the agency of man has had on a na tive fauna and flora. It is believed, for instance, that the native rat. which was found on the island, has now been exterminated by the intro duction of the common brown rat of England. Many housekeepers are paying from 15 to 30 cents a pound for paper, twine, pasteboard, tin and cloth, which they take from goods they buy and throw away, but it is all to the advantage of the man who sold them the goods and counted the wrappers in the weight which the purchaser paid for. Rodin's bust of Whistler is almost ready. The sculptor is to have $2, 500 for his work.

It is estimated that 2,000 local citi zens spent today out of the city. Last evening every train that left was crowded. The 7 o'clock train north over the C, C. & L. lines proved inef ficient to accommodate the crowd and there was a great deal of grumbling and complaint, but the company's local officials offered no remedy. The train consisted of a combination car and a single day coach. Both were packed and Jammed. Women had no place to sit and almost no place to stand. They were crowded between seats and onto the vestibules. A number of men, who had been the first into the car, secured seats and were contented to occupy them while the women stood. The Pennsylvania trains last even ing were not pushed to supply accom modations, but today their capacity was taxed. All outgoing trains were loaded. The locals came in for the THE SANCY DIAMOND Legend of Louis de Berquem and the Celebrated Gem. ; A NIGHT LAMP FOR A KING. I ; Checkered Career of the Brilliant Stone After the Death of Charles the Timid. Some Facte About the Invention of Diamond Cutting. Louis de Berquem, says tradition, was a poor Jeweler's workman, but he fell in love with the daughter of a wealthy jeweler. This avaricious fa ther would not give his daughter in marriage to any man not possessed of gold. Louis, having neither "expecta tions" from relatives nor favor at court, sought to make his fortune. lie had often heard the father of bis be loved remark that the man who discov ered a method of cutting diamonds would become very wealthy, for up to that time they knew nothing more than to scrape off the gravel, and the diamond was left in its native state. Neiher lime, fire nor the mill could af fect the diamond. After many investigations and deep thought Louis bethought himself that Iron is fashioned with steel, which is only hardened iron, and it occurred to him that perhaps the diamond would yield to the diamond. He made an experiment, which was at once crown ed with success. A few days later he presented him self before the rich jeweler with two diamonds cut into facets. He obtained the band he sought and amassed a great fortune by his secret, which he divulged only after he had become wealthy. . King Charles the , Timid was - the principal customer of Louis de Ber quem. The fastidious enemy of Louis XI. then possessed a large diamond, since become celebrated, accounted among the finest of precious stones. But this diamond was ill shapen, and the fires which it held burned in vain. Louis de Berquem cnt and polished this stone, and nothing could equal the joy of Charles the Timid when the ! Jeweler brought him the great dia ; mond, so glittering with light that it lit up the darkness, and this to such an extent that the prince said, "It will serve me as a night lamp." Berquem received 3,000 ducats for his work. As for the diamond, this is the one which was found in January. 1477, on the body of Charles the Timid after the battle of Nancy. A soldier picked it tip, sold It for one gold piece to a priest, who in turn sold it for three pieces of gold to a merchant, who took it to the Duke of Florence. From the hands of this prince it passed into the possession of the king f Portugal. He sold It for 70,000 francs to one of the companions of Henri III., Nicholas de Harlay, baron of Sancy. Since this time the first large diamond to be cut is known as "the Sancy." , This legend leads to other considera tions of the cutting of diamonds as cribed to Louis de Berquem at Brus sels In 1465. Hardly any one will assert boldly that no diamonds were cut before that date, but it is reasonable to suppose that Louis de Berquem regulated cut ting by arranging the facets. Long before the birth of Louis de Berqu-m cwHing was known in India. Even in Europe we find among the treasures of the churches thick dia monds cut into table and culet, the upper sides beaten into sections. In 1360, according to the inventory of the jewels of Louis, duke of Anjou, Is found an entire series of cut diamonds. There is mention of a flat diamond with six sides, of a heart shaped dia mond, of a diamond with eight sides, of a lozenge shaped diamond, of a dia mond pointed on four sides and of a reliquary In which was set a diamond cut in the shape of a shield. History informs tts that 150 years before the first work of Louis de Ber quem there were at Paris, at the cor ner of the Corroyerle, several diamond cutters. The Duke of Burgundy, after a fas tidious repast given at the Louvre to the king and the French court in 1403. offered to his noble guests eleven dia monds estimated to be worth 7S6 rieces of gold, the money of the pe riod. It is hardly possible to suppose that these were uncut diamonds; all of which goes to prove, notwithstanding some opinions, that Louis de Berquera "did not invent the process of diamond cuttoig. IjJi no less Interesting to follow the forties of the Sancy a little further. It remained in the Sancy family some time, and Henri III. took it from them. It was destined to serve as a pledge for the raising of a body of Swiss soldiers, but the servant Intrust ed with bringing this diamond to the king was attacked, put to death, and the diamond was thought to be lost. Finally it was discovered that the servant had been assassinated in the heaviest traffic but many Richmond ites were to be found at Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Dayton, Columbus and a fer spent the day at Chicago or equal ly as distant points. The interurban cars were loaded each trip. These cars brought a large number of persons to the city, but trainmen said the number leaving was in excess. Western destinations seemed to be those preferred, but the east bound cars came in for a good share of the patronage. Many others left the city in automo biles or carriages. There was a string of motor carriages going west on the National road this morning. Wil liamsburg was the destination of sev eral local parties. Others made the trip to Dayton or Indianapolis in their touring cars. Liverymen reported a good business and all methods of trans portation seem to have been called up on to supply the exodus. iorest oi voie ana tnrougn me care of the priest had been buried in the , village cemetery.

In the "Memories" of M. Claude, chief of police during the reign of Na poleon III., there is much that is fas cinating to lovers of detective stories. One of M. Claude's experiences was that in which he was outwitted by a clever criminal who saw in the police chief's resemblance to Beranger when the poet was at the height of bis pop ularity a means of escape from cap ture. The criminal had returned to Paris and was living as a rich student in the Latin quarter, then in the height of its bobemian splendor. Claude thought to make an easy capture of his man by attending a cer tain famous ballroom at the hour when dancing was at Its height He tells the story: "I had no difficulty in discovering him seated among a swarm of pretty girls and bewitching: danseuses. "Convinced there were but two ways of getting the better of a cunning ene mysurprise and audacity I walked straight up to where my rascal was seated. I walked slowly, with steady steps, my eyes on the eyes. of my man. lie was a dark skinned, handsome fel low, with a face as brazen as it was I cynical. I saw by an lmpreceptible sign that be recognized me. He turn ed pale be was mine! "I was almost near enough to cap- ture him when I saw him bend to the ear of one of his companions. Instant-! ly all the girls surrounded me and stood in a feverish, excited, ardent phalanx before me. They formed an Impenetrable barrier, behind which my rascal escaped, while the women press ed eagerly upon me, crying out: " 'Beranger! It is Beranger!' "The magic name presented upon the youthful spirits there the effect of an electric spark. All the dancers of the establishment stopped dancing and surrounded me with acclamations. The students and young girls rushed up to me, some bearing bouquets, otb-1 ers glass in hand. I was literally cov ered with flowers, while the whole place rang with shouts, a hundred times repeated, of 'Vive Beranger! Vive Beranger! ' I was aghast, and yet I understood the trick. On the point of being col lared by me, the man I had marked down had recourse to this shrewd game, which must have succeeded even better than he expected. I certainly bad some points of resemblance to the Illustrious song maker or the whole world of students and grisettes In the Latin Quarter would not have fallen so readily into his trap. I was as bald as the poet at that time, and at all times I have had a certain good na tured, sympathetic benevolence in my appearance such as the portraits of Beranger show to this day. "Well, if the youth of Pa sis counter signed the intentional error of my clev er scamp I owed It to my resemblance to the poet Though I was tricked. I was well tricked. It was not for me ' to own to these giddypates that I was not Beranger. but Claude, the police man, the agent of all the prosecutors. Judges and lawyers who under the restoration had done so much harm to their idol. I escaped from the ova tion, which was becoming delirious under an avalanche of flowers." The Wonderful Aphis. The aphis is in one way the most startling of all forms of Insect life. j for, although the females can and do I lay eggs, its usual method of increase is by a sort of budding process, the young growing on the bodies of the parent exactly as brussels sprouts grow out of the stalks of the plant. The old produce young at the rate of i twenty-five a day, and as the yonns ! are at once mature each can produce j Its twenty-five on the following day. It positively frightens one, to work this multiplication out to a conclu sion, for it means this: Supposing that I the aphide could increase and multiply wiinout mterrerence, tne twenty-flfth generation would be a number too long to quote here.

"Mr. Sankey, according to the tale, met on the street one day a man he hadn't seen for two years. " 'Why,' said the man, 'how well you're looking, Sankey! " 'You, too, are looking well,' said Mr. Sankey. 'And two years ago you were quite out at the elbow, while now you are clothed in purple and line lin en. Come home to dinner with me, won't you?

" 'By means of tact,' replied the guest. 'I suddenly took to being tact ful, and tho results were marvelous. I never neglected on meeting an ac quaintance to say, "How well you are looking!"
