Are Priceless and His Throne Alone'
is Worth $2o,ooo.ooo.
A party of American tourists saw
the jewels in the sultan's treasury re
cendy. The royal throne of Persia,
captured by the Turks in 1514, about
half the size of an ordinary bedstead,
and the footstool accompanying it,
were covered with beaten fine gold.
and the entire surface of each was
thickly studded with precious jewels,
chiefly diamonds, emeralds and sap
phires. There were also some pearls.
rubies and other minor precious
stones. The estimated value of this
throne and accompaniments alone is
The turbans. official paraphernalia
and arms of the former sultan are al
so there, glittering with enormous
precious jewels of every kind in every
part. The throne of Suleiman II is
also there, resplendent with the most
valuable of precious jewels.
There is also a writing desk, or se
cretary, of ordinary size of the same
character, and hundreds on hundreds'
of other minor objects. of public and
private character, made of the finest
materials, most perfectly, and decor
ated in every part with the same kind
and quality of most precious jewels,
from a finger ring and a pipe to a sad
dle, sword and scepter.
For example, there are many coffee,
tea and other drinking sets, made of
gold, porcelain and a variety of other
fine materials, beautiful in form, style
and workmanship. whose decorative
figures are worked out in a profusion
of the most precious jewels, dia
monds, sapphires, emeralds and
rubies, the edges of the cups, mugs
or tankards, as the case may be being
embossed with diamonds in such a
manner as to make them complete
circles,of glittering splendor.

Be Kind to Snakes.
Most farmers, and especially boys,
take trouble to hunt down a snake
when they are really the farmers'
friends. Many persons will leave a
cariage or team in the road to kill a
snake they see upon the roadside.
And as for the black snake that lives
under the house of old porch, it is a
greater enemy to mice and rats than
the best cat could possibly be, while
it would not harm an infant; in fact,
could be termed to be very interest
ing. Kindness always :ins snakes,
and they will show it as perceptibly
as most creatures. A black snake pet
is more cleanly than a dog or cat,
is far less trouble, will respond to the
familiar call just as quickly, show
every evidence of affection as sin
cerely, and if its fangs should scratch
the skin or even penetrate the flesh
the result is not so annoying as the
scratches from the briars that come
from picking roses or blackberries.
