GEMS FUR THE BELLES.
THE DIAMOND MERCHANT’S RE TURN TO WASHINGTON. Official and Society Ladies Dazzled With His Display of Gems L ast Season $200,000 Worth Sold—Mrs. Whit cey s $60,000 Necklace- A $20,000 Diamond Lost. From the Xeui York Sun. Washington, Nov. TJ.— One of the sen sations jn Washington society during the last season was the appearance of a noted dealer in precious stones, who created a furor among the ladies of the Cabinet and high officials, and in social circles. He ap proached society with his gems from anew direction —a social one. A handsome and courteous gentleman himself, with a beau tiful wife, both accustomed to good social usages, the diamond merchant was able to reach the inner circles of society. He had quarters at the Aldington, and within a few weeks alter his arrival he had Washington ladies in a fever of excitement over the splendid gems with which he dazzled their eyes, and all the husbands in Washington going down into their pocketbooks, and wishing the Cincinnati merchant was in Jericho. When the season closed, nearly $200,000 had passed into the pockets of the dealer in precious stones, and rich and rare were the gems that flashed upon many a white neck and arm in the great society crushes of the latter part of the season, whose owner had trusted before that to the power of their own beauty unadorned. One of the first of the many stories set afloat about the craze for gems was of the liurchase by the Whitneys of u SOO,OOO neck ace. In tho necklace were forty stones, graded from the great centre stone each way to stones of the weight of a thistle down. All the diamond markets in the world had been searched to accomplish the graduation. Soon afterward there was a story about some unpleasantness in the household of a Western politician of na tional fame on account of a loving wife opening a letter to her husband containing a bill for diamonds which she hud never re ceived, and there were a good many ex planations, and friends called in and a peace patched up by the purchase of more dia monds, which did go to tho wife and not to some other person. It was told of the wife of a far Western Senator, that while sitting in the parlor of a hotel, after having sent up her card to the wife of another Senator living at the hotel, her attention was attracted to a little group of ladies gathered about the diamond mer chant, who had spread his wares on the piano for their inspection. She listened to their “alls'’ and “ons,” and little screams of ecstatic admiration, and than crossed the room and joined the group. She handled the gems with an appearance of indifference blended with the air of a connoisseur. The other ladies, wives of Congressmen and government officials, stood back respect t ully. Finally she picked up a great car buncle pendant set in a double row of iiearls and diamonds, and said: “What do you value that at?” “Seventeen hundred dollars,” was the re ply. The lady opened her reticule, took out a check book, made out a check for the amount, put the pendant in her pocket, and calmly resumed her chair. She paralyzed that group of ladies, and at the same time added another jewel to a collection which is already one of the richest owned by any American lady. The diamond merchant has returned to town, and is prepared for another campaign. Last night he hail an adventure in the Eb bitt House that made his hair curl. He is noted for dealing in gems of extraordinary size and value, and is intrusted with the sale of such gems by European and New York dealers. He took a friend into tho reading-room of the hotel to show him an extraordinary opal, claimed to be the largest and finest in America, set in diamonds. He spread out the stones on the table, and they made a brilliant and dazzling display. The opal, which is over an inch long and wonderfully iridescent, was admired, together with a big amethyst set in brilliants, and a handful of diamonds of different values, some of them, as the? saying goes, worth a king’s ransom. At length he carefully produced the star of the collection, a diamond of fifteen carats, which he says is the finest in the world which is for sale, and is valued at $20,000. He put the great stone in his tweezers and passed it over to his friend, against his usual custom, which is always to hold the stone in his own hand when enclosed in the tweezers. Just as the stone was changing hands, and the diamond merchant was say ing, “Hold it firmly,” there was a snap, a streak of light, a click on tho marble floor, and the diamond was gone. The party of men were sittt,— at the end of the writing table near the windows opening on F street, and the stone shot toward the other end or the large rwcan, from which doors open into the general office near the washroom and the news-stand. The two or three other gentlemen in the room sprang for the $20,- (100 diamond, and everybody went down on hands and knees in a search for it. The doors were hurriedly closed, and Mr. Burch, the head clerk summoned. Here was a for tune in one little stone lying somewhere alxmt the hotel floors, and crowds of per sons, servants, etc., passing and repassing. The stone seemed to shoot into the corner of the room behind the door leading into the general ofliee, and search was made there. “If the stone is in sight you cannot miss it,” said the diamond merchant. “You might as well try to hide a coal of fire.” It was found that in that particular corner there were two holes through the floor, where formerly heating pipes had passed. When the diamond merchant saw them he put his hands over his white face, from which the perspiration was pouring, and muttered: “My God! What have I done?” Meanwhile a negro had been brought in and ordered to sweep the floor. There had been no thought that the diamond had gone out of the room into the general office. The rumor of some great loss spread about, and the people standing about the lobby came crowding about the guarded doors of the reading loonj. Just at this point, Dr. F. 8. Coues, of the United States navy, came out of the wash-room, and, seeing the crowd and the people inside the reading room creeping and searching, he stepped in and said to the negro with the broom: “What’s the matter? Something lost?’ “Yes, sah,” was the reply. “What is it?” asked the doctor. “ ’Deed I don’t know, sah. There is the man that lost it,” pointing l the merchant. “What have vou lost?” asked Dr.Coues. “A diamond,*’ was the answer. “Well, I guess 1 found - said the doctor, and he pulled the $20,000 gem from his vest pocket and placed it in the had of the dia mond merchant. The merchant’s trained eye recognized it nt once, and he threw his arm around the (lo'-tor’s neck, anil there was a sigh of relief nil around. The doctor had picked it up in the door of the wash room, where it had been shot by a carrom on the wall inside the reading room, and put it hi his 'est pocket with the intention of handing it in at the office. • “I bad uo idea about the thing,” he said afterward. “I thought, it was some bril liant or Oregon diamond, find then conclu ded that it came off from ouo of those glass pendants ori the chandelier. In fact, I came near not picking it up at all, and would not have done so except for its exceptional bril liancy. Even in the dark, where it lay, it w os like a star.” It is probable that Dr. Coues by this time is not without a souvenir of the occasion, ®nd that hereafter the diamond merchant ■will hold his tweezers with an iron grip.

A Simple Little Tale in the Casino Bal cony—A Bleecker Street Angel. From the Xew York Graphic. Some men were chatting ou the Casino balcony last night. Shapely forms, rich dresses and flashing jewels illuminated the stage below, and these men talked of ac tresses and their conquest and conquests. Four were rather sapless young men in the immaculate evening dress and eyeglasses. The fifth was a man who commanded atten tion when he rarely spoke. He was the popular type of a club man; portly, un ruffled, purple of face, heavy or jawl and perfectly attired in a Prince Albert coat and yellow checked trousers. He was something of a mystery even to his club. He was known to be a man with a his tory. The single young men knew him only for an incorrigible roun der and an unswerving patron of the drama. After the other four had bragged themselves out as to them stage door experiences, the old rounder said: “When I was a younger man, boys, I had a little of this sort of experience myself. And I don’t mind telling you a story.” The four young men eagerly listened. “You remember, perhaps, though you were ail at the university then, when the ‘Black Crook’ was first brought out at Niblo’s Garden. I was just back from Paris, and I feel bound to say the fuss made over it was ridiculous. I was there the first night, aud got down there pretty often afterward. In fact there was a girl on the stage that I’d taken a mighty fancy to. She was third in the line of tho amazons—a slight, shrinking little thing, with the face of Raphael’s Madonna. Tho first night I sent a bouquet behind with niycard; and on it was the number of my cab. That used to be the method, you know. You chaps haven’t improved on it. Well. I waited beside the cab till midnight, and drove off alone. The next night I occupied a stage box. I hate to be auspicious, but I made up my mind to have that girl. I managed to catch her eye,* and the next time she passed me threw her a bunch of roses. Inside was my card, and on one stem was tied a big diamond ring. The girl saw tooth,’and she deliberately kicked the flowers into the orchestra. “Well, I was younger then than I am now- and carried rather less fiesh about me. And I’m bound to say I hadn't been en tirely neglected bv tho ladies. My blood was up. Besides this 1 had a notion, based on some experience, that the favors of any chorus girl was only a question of time— aud money. The next day my Madonna had received a note addressed to her by her real name—her first name, by the way, was Mary—with the usual story of mad despair at her indifference and—and all the rest of it, you kuow. I told her I would wait that night at the stage door and take her home. At 31 o’clock there I was. Well disguised, for men of the world those days, my boys, didn’t like to be sen in such places. She came out, closely muffled, but I knew her springing step, and she had the air, by , of a duchess. I joined her at the corner of Bleecker street. “ ‘Well,’ said I, ‘here I ana.’ She said nothing; just looked at me with her big eves and walked along. Well, I told her how badly I felt at her indifference, and how I would do anything to gain her love, and a lot of the sort of rot that men think all women expect, as I walked along beside her. Bhe iticlu’t say a word; just walked along and looked me straight in the face whenever we came to a lamp-post. She wasn’t afraid of me, and she played none of the timid, don’t-touch-me, go-off-or-I’U scream business. Just looked at me, you know, and somehow I couldn’t talk with my usual agreeable fluency. Somehow I felt mean and cheap and low, and before we had gone two blocks to the west of Broadway I wanted to drop it and cut away. I don’t know whether pride kept me or—or some thing of what the parsons call Providence. But I staid till she reached one of those old fashioned brick houses below South Fifth avenue and felt in her pocket for a key. Then I plucked up nerve to say with pain ful facetiousness: “ - Won’t you invite me up?’ “ ‘Yes, you may come up,’ she said as she might have spoken to a beggar asking for a meal. “Well, that knocked me all up. I tried to kiss her, but she put me away, and I fol lowed her up-stairs to a room on the third story. A shaded lamp cast a dim light, and 1 only saw one thing. Lying asleep in a double bed was a beautiful boy about two years old. I ain’t sentimental, but I tell you I felt as I looked at him, boys, and watched that girl stoop over and kiss his hair—well, you kuow the story of the shepherds in Pal estine, eh ? The boy was sound asleep and she turned to me. 11l never forget the contempt, the indignation, the sadness, too, of her face. “ ‘This is my brother,’ she said, ‘Do you think he needs diamonds ? And now you may go.’ “'Well, I got out somehow, and the next day I sent a bank book to that boy with enough to his credit on it to bring him up like a gentleman.” The old rounder stopped abruptly and took a long draught of brand}- and soda. The music arose from below like a lullaby. There was an uncomfortable silence for a moment. Then somebody asked: “And what became of the girl i” “Why—l married her.” And the old rounder lit a fresh cigar and arose. “Mhe is dead now,” he added, as he walked slowly away. Distillation of Wood. From the Scientific American. The Cadosia Chemical Cos., at Cadosia, N. Y., has several establishments in that vicin ity for the distillation of wood, which has now became an extensive and important industry. Almost anj- of the harder varieties of wood will answer, but thoso chiefly found and used by this company, in the region it now occupies, are birch, beech and maple. Pine, hemlock and soft woods will not answer. The general operations and prod ucts of the company are as follows: Contracts are made with the neighboring fanners for the purchase of standing wood, on which an agreed amount is paid in ad vance, balance payable as fast as the wood is cut by the company. The wood is deliv ered at the works in ordinary four-foot lengths and is then piled in the distilling retorts, of which there are in the Cadosia still house 24 nairs. The retorts consist of cast iron, somewhat in the form of a steam boiler about 10 feet long and feet diume tor, having a largo manhole at. one end and condensing exit neck at tho other end. When a retort is filled with wood the man hole is closed and sealed; a slow fire is then started tinder tho retort. The first products of the distillation, consisting of alcoholic vapors, are passed through a condensing worm, and tho liquid thus produced is sub sequent! / redistilled and this product then sold, Most of it goes to Binghamton\N. Y., where it is refined and put on the market as wood alcohol. The second products of the distillation, consisting of acetic vapors, are condensed as before described and tile liquid is mixed with lime, thorough mixture being effected by mechanical means, thus producing ace tate of lime—used in cloth printing works. The crudo acetate is placed above the retorts on racks, where it is dried and is then ready for market. The third products of the distillation, con sisting of tarry matters and naphthas, are shipped as produced, and subsequently re fined. The last products, consisting of heavy tare, arc used at the works as fuel. When the distillation is finished, (here remains within the retorts a mass of clean and beau tiful charcoal, ready for market, and all df it is sold to the steel makers. Most of it goes to Troy, N. Y., where it is chiefly used in the production of fine steel. The principal fuel usod in these work* is bituminous coal, which, together wifli the crude lime required, is brought to the works uy railway. - ■■■■ . ■ 50c. Candies sold at D. B.
