"If the occasion ever nrlses for the now
Amen lean women to show truo public
Fplrlt, ftom tlie sale of their Jewels alono
they could build and equip twenty of the
blcgeat battleships that eer destroyed
commerce on the high soas. You have
liLard how much a battleship costs? Well,
multiply that by twentj, and vou mil
reach the nearest estimate I -can rnako
of the value of the pie-clous stones owned
in our states." This from a member of a
most prominent firm of Jeweler, and when
the repot ler stared and Rasped at the re
sult or the sum in multiplication, hu only
liughid, and said he had drawn it very
mild. "For Amei leans ale the most lavish
purchase! s of diamonds and peails alone
of any women In the world."
"Thn tuste for diamonds grows with ln
diilsrence. the more a woman has the more
sho wants, until It becomes us is the case
of one of our custonieis, who will bperid a
morning over our counters, shopping for
tl.tras as coolly as If she wan matching rib
bon. Bile has found, like pretty .Mrs.
Yurkcs, of Chicago, that the wnv to be
famous for her Jewels is to buy only of a
c rtaln kind."
"It was .Mrs. Yerkes who first bought
rUlow diamonds, as .Mrs. Astoi hnd the
best that could be done In a collection of
white stones, and the Chicago lady's cas
ket Is reckoned as worth close onto JJOAtU).
Her necklace is long enough to be wurn us

gems bunging down to her tlbowv '
Mis. William Astor has really never
cared for other jewels than diamonds, and
only wears portions of tier rorbelllu on

other times showing but her wedding ring
and a little circlet, of not at all valuable
pearls, given her long at,o by her eldest
son. He has nddrd from time to time to

There nre throe diadems and a perfect

lrom anthiues, one from a loyal Husslitn
ornament, showing twenty of its Mg stones
pleiced through the center, the most dltll

d.ivs, .Mrs stor often woie her danc

and covered, as with a. euliass, from throat
to waist, so huse were btr two atuniachers,
but as hostess she weal a only a few ringa
