New York, December 18. The un
lucky opal is comiDg into popular
favor. Prominent jewelry firms, es
pecially to those which catr to the
hobbies of the four hundred or fashion
able world, say that their calls for
the stone tf ill-omen during the past
two months have exceeded any twelve

Women are the principal buyers, the
prevailing fad befog for brooches or
signs of opa's encircled with diamonds,
although opal scarf-pins for men are
being sold in large numbers. The
hobby does not appear to ba local, as
wholesale dealers report a pronounced
improvement in the demand for opals

Cincinnati and Chicago. Reta:i jewel

to the opal is favt dying out, and that
it is now the favorite stone of gam
