Mixture of Clay and Oxide of Chronium
Said to Produce Good Results.
Artificial rubles are made by a proc
ess of the chemist Verneull by melt
ing a mixture of clay and oxide ot
clironium at an even temperature of
several thousand degrees, reports
Counsel Richard Guentber from Ger
many. Tho two substances are care
fully placed above each other in lay
ers, so as to prevent cracking in the
It. Is stated that Vorneuil finally suc
ceeded in producing an artificial ruby
weighing live pounds, which had a
value of about $UU0. From this price
It may bo judged that the product is
not first class, and probably Just pays
the costs of manufacture. In order
to produce the exceedingly high tem
perature which Is indispensable for
success. Vorneuil uses a blast of oxy
hydrogen gas, which acts directly on
the mass from the top. The hardiRvs
of t no ruby Is the result of quick cool
ing ci.iu ed by sudden interruption of
the blast of oxyhydrogen. Tho artifi
cial ruby is said to be very pure and
brilliant, possessing all the physical
properties of natural rubies. It cat.'
be cut, and takes a very fine polish.
In view of these assertions It seems
singular that artificial rubies have no
higher value, especially as the natural
articlo Is so exceedingly high priced

Disraeli On His Marriage.
Disraeli autographs, formerly among
the scarcest, threaten to glut tho mar
ket. At least a duzcu havo been put
into the hands of the auctioneers and
dealers during the last lew days.
One of tho number has that touch
of nature which makes men kin. It
is a letter written to announce his
marriage, end Is addrcsp-.d to his un
cle, Mr. Hasevl, the parliamentary
lawyer. "I rather think," he Bays,
"that you will not bo so much sur
prised as I am, that I am going to' be
married, and you can even hazard a
conjecture as to the lady who is about
to make me a happy man."
Alas, thero is no footnote to say
whether and to what extent the neph
ew "drew his uncle. A wouuing pres
ent was likely to bo acceptable enough
to Disraeli at that date, when he was
still in the hands of his compatriots
the Jews; and though his undo was
a man of moans, ho was also a man
of prejudices, and of these his nephew
had tho full disadvantage. London

"Can't you speak on anything elso
but death?" asked the landlord in des
peration. "Conversation is prompted by sur

"Hut there are no gravestones nor
