wAs Ame Il.a. Ot ..f Clay or e a Cmart
by Freneh 'hemleta.
This is the story that a retail jew
eler on Broadway tells: "A man came
in here the other morning and took
out a magnificent stone, which he put
on the counter and asked me what I
thought of it. Well. I thought it wa.
a ruby worth about $7.or ,s00t. The-,
color was a deep pigeon's bloodl. and
while the magnifier showed little
spoets, like bubbles, in the stone they
didn't interfere with its transparency
r brightness. 'What' s it worth : said
t'Sixty dollars a arat.' said he. I
looked at him in amazement. 'Then
it's paste.' said I. 'Not a bit of it.' said
he. I tested it fe r hardness, and it
was all right. Then the man ex
plained that whil : it was a real ruby
it was produced by artificial means.
A French cbemi 4, made it. Very few
of these stone' have come to this
country so far. nmd in most of those'
that have ther was no material that
could be used for jewelry. the crys
tals were so . aall. This puts a dif
ferent phase -n the business.'
Artificial ystallization of alumina
was accomI ished several years ago.
The color a the resulting mineral
was super . but the indivdual crys
tals were so minute that a micro
scope was needed to distinguish their
angles. They were united by their
aes to a crust of amorphous alumi
an and sparkled like tiny red star
whenever the light played acr,.-s
them. The natural ruby doubtle,
9gok years and very likely centu
, ries to form. The chemical rul,v.
which is precisely the same as tl e
natural ruby. is made in a few week..
It is almost pure alumma-the earth
of the metal aluminum-the red col

Poutbful Precocity.
Mr. Ruskin is an instance of pre
a-ity as remarkable as Thirlwall.
Iough he did not begin to publish
i early. He began to write "books'
at 6 years of age. His first dated
poem was written a month before he
leached the age of 7. A poem he
wrote when 7 years old reminds Mr.
(oulingwood (see "Life," 189, vol
in 1, a~ IS) of "Blake's best

"I' yoa want inseripoosm or
have any need of marble work, you'll
get it here." Another enterprising
man at Bologna annomunces, "A bath
in town style and every conven
ience." A similar notice meets ur
only eight miles from Rome, where.
of course, most of the customers
would be able to know whether they
really had "town style" or not.
A curious example comes from
Lyons, which may be paraphrased
thus: "Here Mercurypromises profit.
Apollo safety and 8eptumanuns be
an breakfast. He whohas been here
before will be treated all the better a
second time. Stranger, settle on your
lodging beforehand." A more inde
pendent tone is taken by another Ur
keeper, who doesn't hesitate to de
clare that his house is not intended
for people of only moderate means.
"If you live in goodl style, here's the
house for you; if in poor fashion. I'll
put up with you. but I shai, be
ashamed of having you." There are
a good many tIhwlrn hotels conduct
ed on this principle, but the proprne
tors are not as a rule quite so frank
in expressinm their sentimeuts. -Mae

faith in these or any other medicine but
concluded. at last, to take his advice and try
a box. Before I had used them al. I was
very much better, and two boxes cured me.
I am now ao years old; but I believe that

There is no denying the fact that the jolliest and most amusing recollections of the Fair are connected with the world famous
" Midway," whose entertaining and bizarre features seemed never to pa'1 on the millions of visitors who from May until October
thronged its streets and alleys and crowded its vaitous places o,f amnllulcnt. from noon till long past midnight Its features were so
numerous and contrasting that though seen and seen again, they ne\er can be all remembered.
