FL PASO DAI! Y HERALD. FRIDAY. DECEMBER 21. 1900.
10 THE JUBIL DIAMOND. It Is tbe Larsril and Moat Contly of All Diamond. No single rVj-jct exhibited at the Paris exposil.ju '-n remotely ap proaches in value il;e gleaming "Jubi lee" diamond, as ii i::i-ieen called In commemoration of tin- j;.bilee of the reign of the queen of England. It is a -diamond of the first water and of a beauty ami size that leave anything known heretofore far behind. This largest and most costly of all diamonds -weighs In its present shape 239 carats, while the next largest viz, the "Or ion"," crowning the Russian imperial cepter weighs but 194 carats; also mm regards whiteness and fire, as well m in the wonderful perfection of its cat, the "Jubilee" excel all its rivals. For the time being this Goliath Among precious stones is still owned by a syndicate of capitalists connected With the Jagersfonteln mine, in which It was found. With regard to the price one can hardly speak about that until the stone has been sold, an event which la doubtless not going to take place in m. hurry, for the guard stationed by the showcase containing tbe sparkling gem gives its value at 8.000.000 francs, whether correctly or not is hard to ny. Only one thing seems assured namely, that the stone shown to the admiring crowds In the palais on the Esplanade des Invalides is paste, while Its original is kept somewhere in se cure custody. This gem was found on Jnne 30, 1893, at Jagersfonteln, in the Orange Free State. The stone was picked up by a native while he was loading a truck, and. although a white overseer was standing near him. he managed to se crete it and kept it on his person for some time. In this case, however, it did not appear that he proposed steal ing the gem. but only wished to deliver it personally to the manager. This he did. and as a bonus be received 150 and a horse, saddle and bridle. Tbe diamond weighed in the rough exactly 971- carats, or about 7 1-10 ounces avoirdupois. Unfortunately it had a black spot about the middle, but it was bo placed as to allow the stone being cut into two. with the spot falling out. Jewelers' Circular-Weekly. The Male Sblrt tValat. "This year." says a writer in the Philadelphia Record, "we have merely seen the man lu the ordinary negligee shirt who had nerve enough to remove his coat in public. But next year we shall see real shirt waists for men's wear, almost similar to those worn by women. The large shirt manufactur ers are already making them up. and the salesmen will soon start out with their samples, soliciting orders for the spring trade, for the ready made shirt business, like most other large indus tries, must keep a season ahead. "A Chestnut street dealer In men's furnishing goods said recently that be understood the new garments would be a complete innovation. They are made with a blouse effect, the walst laod to be connected with tbe trousers by buttons, just as in the garment worn by small boys. Some have broad yokes, and others have plaits both in tbe bosom and In tbe back. The manufacturers are not taking any chances, though.' said a haber dasher. 'The sales are to be outright and cannot be canceled or modified to suit the demand, as is tbe case with most' staple goods. If we buy them and can't sell tbeui. we're stuck. Do I think they will le a aY The haber dasher merely shrugged his shoulders." Electricity In Mlnlns. In the first place, its great conven ience must le noted. An electric lamp can be placed and used where no other lamp can and practically any candle power that may be required can be Lad from it. An electric motor to do certain work is much lighter and han dier than any other form of motor, and the cables which feed it with energy are lighter, handier, more easily got into Ksition and more easily main tained than tbe pipes required for either steam or compressed air. The electric signal and the electric tele phone will do what no other apparatus wilL All these are sources of economy In themselves, and tbe busier the mine the greater the economies effected. But apart from these considerations, the electric motor and the electric sys tem of transmitting power Is far more efficient than any other system. En gineering Magazine. Wain la the Heir. There has been a story circulated to the -effect that when Queen Victoria dies tbe Emperor William would push bis claim to tbe throne as being nearer in tbe line of succession than bis uncle, the Prince of Wales. This could not possibly be. as the cognate law of suc cession prevails In Great Britain. This law gives the right of succession to the male heirs in the same relation to the sovereign and excludes all female heirs without regard to priority of birth as long as male heirs are living. Queen Victoria's great-grandchildren are near er to the throne than her own sons, ex cept the Prince of Wales. Marriage to a Catholic debars a prince or prin- from the throne of England. Skootlac Aroud Coraera. Two wonderful Inventions to enable soldiers to practically shoot around corners are announced. One Is a Ger man invention and the other the prod not of an Englishman's brain, but they both seem to be on much the same principle. The English device is at tached to the stock of the rifle, and it enables tbe marksman to not only sight bis weapon behind cover, but also to find his target and his range at the same time. With the German arrange ment, which the German war office has promptly secured, tbe soldier is Baid to be able to sight his rifle while be remains under cover, but all other par ticulars are withheld. Tbe Stewart Maaaloa. The old Stewart bouse at Fifth av enue and Thirty-fourth street. New York city, which has Just been sold. Is still looked npon by country visitors as a model of a New York palace. When A. T. Stewart built the house, nearly 40 years ago, be was one of the most talked about of New York's million aires.. Every visitor to the city saw Stewart's store as one of tbe sights and then gazed on the exterior of bis new house. Tbe appointments of this man sion were so embellished by tbe imagi nation that Stewart himself would not have recognized them. From its situ ation and style the house has always been conspicuous, but as a residence It would not bear comparison with any one of a hundred New York bouses. Since Mrs. Stewart's death tbe only tenant of this property has been the Manhattan club, and that organization was almost killed by it. Since the Manhattan club moved down to tbe University club's old bouse the proper ty has been for sale. Rumor bas turned it into a restaurant several times and once Into a store, and now there Is no certainty as to what will be done with It. It Is a conspicuous monument to A. T. Stewart's fortune, and so long as It stands It will be known as the Stewart house. Clever Yankee Rose. We should not be surprised If quite a fresh stimulus were given to emigra tion to the United States when tbe con tents of a recent interesting telegram are made more widely known. This laconic message says that, according to recent statistics, the total population of the United States Is 76.000.000. and of these only 2 per cent possess a piano. It Is only those who have suffered and are suffering from the piano plague that stalks incessantly about our towns and suburbs who can appreciate tbe Importance of such a message, and tbe very thought of a country where only one family in 50 has daughters addict ed to tbe daily practice of scales, chro matic and otherwise. Is a temptation to tbe victims of the ever present piano to remove themselves and their house hold gods to tbe other side of the At lantic. Truly a cleverer move for at tracting a colony of peace loving, desir able immigrants than this diplomatic telegram could not have been made. It does tbe greatest credit to Vankee cute- ness. Westminster Budget. Loloi Clab Men a Carat. One of tbe features of tbe Mark Twain dinner at tbe Lotos club was tbe menu card, on wbicb was printed a photogravure portrait of Mr. Clemens, with bis white hair surrounded with lotos blossoms. These appropriate menu cards have been for many years features of tbe Lotos club dinners. They are usually bound In a folded sheet of rough, d.irk colored paper. Tbe art work on tbem is of tbe best. and a complete collection of tbem which bangs on the walls of the club's cafe makes an Interesting pictorial hi tory of the club's remarkable series of dinners. Every visitor to New York during the past 25 years who was con spicuous in music, art. the stage, liter ature or politics has been entertained by the Lotos club, and tbe dinner cards on each occasion have been emblematic of the career of the guest of honor. The cards, which bang in tbe grill room, have each tbe autograph of tbe guest in whose booor the dinner was given. New York Sun. A Tai o Calldleaa Frenchmen. A bill ba9 been introduced into tbe French senate providing for a tax on celibates of both sexes after they reach the age of 30 and upon childless cou ples who have been married for five years, the tax to be maintained until a child is born to tbem. The aim of tbe bill is. of course, to provide a remedy for tbe threatened depopulation of France by increasing the birth rate. Medical Record.
