PEARLS, OF AMERICA.
J?'; __ A GEM EXPERT TALKS ABOUT THEM INTERESTINGLY. V _ Tho Right Way to Take Them— , The Indians’ Valuation—Famous | American Pearls—Pearl Growing for Prollt. Numerous items luf^o recently ap peared in the press concerning the pearls of the Sugar ltiver, Wisconsin, which [have not all been without foun elation, since some parcels liave been eont to New York which were worth from a few dollars to over one thousand dollars a parcel. To many who have read these accounts it may bo iutorest ing to know that, in the last twenty years, more than $100,000 worth of pearls have been found in tho United States in that family of mnllusks known as “uuios,” or fresh-water mussels, tho same that abounded at one time in the rivers of Scotland. It was from pearls found in these kind of shells that the name of “Sootcli River Pearls” was taken. It was the fame of these which the historian Suetonius says induced Caesar to send his armies to Great Brit ain, and it was with tho pearls which they secured that lie had a buckler made which he presented to the temple of Venus Genetrix. A largo pearl found by Daniel Howels at Notehbrook, N. J., in 1856, which Messrs. Tiffany & Co. sold to the Empress Eugenie for $2,500, led to a pearl excitement at that time which re sulted in the raking of (he brooks throughout the entire United States. Millions of shells were opened; but a very small proportion of them, indeed, were found to contain pearls of any kind, while nearly all, if not quite ali, the mussels tound wore destroyed. Tn 1857 iully $15,000 worth of pearls were sent to New York; in 1858-69 nnd I860 only about $2,000 worth. The ex citement abated until 1808, when there was a slight revival. The pearls found in tho American unios are rarely perfectly round, often button shaped, that is, Hat on one side. sionally assuming fantastic shapes, as lishes, bird’s wings, heads of animals, etc., and others are too irregular to be of any use whatever. The color of many is often superb, such as white, pink, hazy blue, sometimes rivalling in brilliancy even Oriental pearls. Then, if of good form, they have a high value. The irregular shaped ones, if line in oolor, are used for scurf pins and other jewels, and very successfully in the decoration of etched, enamelled, or oxi dized silver. In certain countries pearl raising is a distinct profession. In fc'axouy this in dustry has been in tho hands of (he Schmelor family since lG4fi, and a cor rect record has been kept of every pearl that has beeir obtained, as well us the name of the mau who found it. Their method of pearling consists, notin open ing the mussel by boiling, which de stroys the pearl, or opening it with a knife or other sharp instrument, which kills the animal, but in slipping be tween tho valves of the molhr-k a sharp pointed pair of forceps or pliers, the handles of which are slowly pressed to gether, thus opening the shell. Should a pearl be- present, it can ousily be re moved, and if no pearls are present the mollusk is put back in the stream. In this way the “unios" are not extermin ated. Unless some such method is adopted by our own people the present excitement will lead to the ext ermina tion of all our fresh-water mussels. Few pearls at present are found east of Ohio, although many fine ones were found in that State during the past twenty years, some of which were in a collection made by Mr. Harris of Way no mile, <)., which was mounted for the Paris Ex position. This collection contains a series of pearl ornaments, in which tho pearls are arranged according to tho color or shade, so that in one the pearls are green, in another purplish brown, in another pink, in another cream yellow, and in another waxy white. One pink pearl of eight grains was admired. By reflected light this pearl had the transluoency and color of a drop of molten silver in an assay crucible. In the oommon coueli, slrombui gtgat, or trumpet shell, as it is sometimes called in Florida and tho West Indies, few pearls of great value have been found on tho Florida coast, but occasionally they nave noon found in the West Indies, worth over #1,000 each. These gener ally have a satiny lustre, the structure lieing crystalline, differing from the pearls found in the unio and true pearl oyster, the structure of which is coneen On the California coast (he Haliotis or Abalone ear shell is much sought for by the Chinese for food and bait. Thirty-flve thousand dollars' worth ot the shells have been sent to China, anil #175 000 worth of shells have been sent to England and China in one year for the manufacture of buttons, eight cents per pound being paid for them. I bo pearls found in these shells are light green, very irregular in shape, but the lustre often very beautiful. These pearls have been sold for from a few dollars to s*10D each. The shell is said to be worth #150 a ton in Liverpool, and is made into green, smoky pearl buttons. Dr. Daniel G. Brintou, archaeologist in a letter to Dr. A. 0. Bau, of the Smithsonian Institute, says that wlreu hewasa surgeon in the Army of he Cumberland during the Civil wiu, the mussels of*the Columbia Bivcr were oc ““nv eaten bv the soldiers of tlie coriaTand pronouilood to be no bad diet, ami also that the shells of the unio were , i in the Indian graves, showing that the moUusks had been placed there tolrvc ^ food during the journey to to serve as ■ There cun be th^ nhk that rom thiH shell flsli the ^ obtattl tUe pearls which were tiri7fid as ornamenta by the w the Peabody Mu «ss *x* p'Tf w'l’ttl'’*™ drfan nit,. of one Ind^fhvmir early voyagers, pierced soribeu by owr Y. /0(i oopper wire, which they hud thrown them had charred them. In tlm Liberal Arts section of the I (iris Exposition of 1889 was a case ex hibited by Dr. Thomas Wilson, archae ologist of tho United States National Museum, containing a beiutiful string of pearls found in an Indian mound. These were obtained by Mr. W. K. More hcitd is the Pottor mouud, Ross county, In the collection of unios bequeathed to the Unitod States National Museum by the late Dr. Isaac Lee is a hemispheri cal piece of candle greaco w hich had been inserted in the mollusks in the hope of having it coated with penrly .nacre, and of producing [marls. It was, however, only partly coated with a rich pink pearly nac.ro. During the New Jersey pearl excitement of 1856, there were found inserted in the mollusks a number of turned pearl buttons which had been placed there for the same pur pose. Those were partly coated with a secretion, and were secured to the shell. It was about this time that the scientists of Europe were greatly interested in tho number of shells whioh were received from China containing small images of Buddha. These figures were originally moulded in tin foil, and then plaoed be tween the shell and mantle of the ani mal. The shells were then returned to their natural bods or ditches, and aftei a time a layer of mother of pearl coated these figures and attached them to the shell. These were then out out and sold. They were also shown as a result of the miraculous working powers of the priest. At the International Fisheries Ex hibit, held in Berlin in 1880, were shown the results of experiments undertaken in Germany toward the production of artificial pearls in unios. Flat tin fig ures and other objects were introduced, but the shape of tho article was such that tho mantle did not fit olosely around them. In 1850 Heinrich Muller, a German, conceived tho idoa of making small fancy articles out of the shells, which proved so successful that the German Government, allowed him to take the shells out of the beds themselves. The whito and reddish hue tinted VJOIVIO nitD cojJDi UVD1H u for (his purpose, and an industry has been established for the manufacture of pearl mussel poeketbooks, and band satchels. The structure and translu ciency of the shells are such that they can be polished quite thin, and a figure pasted on the insidoean be seen through About fifty dollars a ton is ottered in Europe for unio shells of good pink color, whereas $300 to $400 a ton is paid for the shells of the true pearl oys slers.—[New York Sun. COSILY POSTAGE STAMPS. Over a Million of Dollars is the Price of One Collection. It may be said of postage stamps, what cannot lie said of many articles of vertu and bric-a-brac, that a good collection is a sound investment for money, for while pictures, cliina and other tilings are subject to fanciful changes of price, (he marketable value of rare stampB is determined, and must increase with the flux of time. As a stamp becomes rarer and rarer it must go up iu price, aud an investor who puts his money in s amps may rely, provided he purchases iu the light quarter, upon getting his money back, and more besides, when he dis poses of his collection. A study of the comparative prices of rare stamps to-day with the prices they fetched a few years ago would lead to this conclusion. (Stamps, by the nature of such things, are Always increasing in value, and specimens which were com mon euough ten years ago are now not easy to obtain, and as they become rarer and rarer it is natural they should also become dearer. A famous collector who is collecting English stumps has an exclusively Eng lish oollaction that is worth in the open market $50,000. This sum would be realized if the collection weVe "broken up ” and sold piecemeal, and there are several collections in this country which lunge in value from $10,000 to $350,000. What is undoubtedly the most valuable collection in the world is the property of a German gentleman residing in Paris. The holder of this wonderful collection would not take $1,350,000 forit. Money would not pur elinsi it. It is simply unique. Yet there are gaps ill mis i-uuvcwuu, the owner of which is still one of the most enthusiastic collectors, always on tho lookout for fresh ucquisions. With rare stamps reaching these great values, and large fortunes locked up in stamp albums, we nee l not insist upon the necessity of guardiug against forged specimens. The high prices which the rarest specimens of stamps now realize will explain how it is that the trade in forgeries has become what it is in these days. We have recently seen a fair re production of the Britannia issue of Mauritius (1869) blue (value not in dicated), perforated and water marked. The original of this stomp was never issued perforated. But tho word “re print ” or “ specimen ” oil a stamp is soon effaced by the forger with bis chemicals. Indeed, we have ourselves seen examplesof used stamps,regummed, with all post-office marks obliterated and to all intents and purposes having the appearance of unused stumps. The same treatment Iiob been adopted with regard to the Capo of Good Hope, New Zealand, Queensland, India nnd other British dependencies. With the can celing marks deftly removed all those stamps would pass for new.—Brio-a Brae. __ Ten Hindu Commandments.

Chenille fringes and trimmings are in creasing in variety. When used in black upon colored woolens the effect is very pretty. Little Princess Wilhelmina, heir to the Dutch throne, has mastered Dutch and German and is now diligently studying French. Throads of bronze and copper oven about the rubber gas tube givo that part of a drop lamp a decidedly snakc-like ap pearance. Turbans, toques and small bonnets promise to be more extensively worn than large hats, notwithstanding early predictions to the contrary. An unusual wedding ceremony occurred not long ago in Dublin, where a well kqown artist was married to his second wife by a clergyman who was hia son by his first wifo. One of the daintiest devices in station ery this season is n pretty note paper in shades of richest mazarine, cream, opa line, silver gray and tho inner tint of a pale pink rose petal. Lady Sandhurst, upon whom tho free dom of the city of Dublin was con ferred, is said to bo the first woman upon whom that honor has been be stowed for 300 years. Long mantles of the Russian type,with plain loose coat sleeves under the long hanging sleeves, aro the models most fre quently shown in the cloak departments of tho leading houses. Brownish reds and ruddy browns in all shades are beautifully combined with pale blue, rose, water green, and cream white for the fronts of dressy tea gowns and morning wrappers. The favorite cut for a velvet sleeve is after the leg o’ mutton, wrinkled above the elbow and nearly tight below, with six small buttons and loops of braid on the insult seam of the wrist. In a school for young women, not far from Philadelphia, it was a rulo some years ago that every young lady must, before retiring, give her hair one hun dred good strokes with the brush. Queen Olga, of Greece, is particularly fond of American literature. She is a constant reader of the-principal American magazines and newspapers. Her favorite of all authors in Nathaniel Hawthorne. The triple Garrick or “four-in-hand" cape is in high favor *rith ladies who handle the reins themselves. The fa vorite color for it is a dark navy blue, and a turban or small toque of felt of the same color is worn with it. Some fancy jackets of sealskin have vests of natural seal, leopard or white lambskin, with revere of seal, and others have caps of Persian lamb, which begin at the top of the sleeve and fall in tabs down the front below the waist. Queen Victoria is very fond of Scotch articles of diet. She likes oatmeal in every form, and eats it for breakfast and dinner. She drinks beer for luncheon, and at night, on retiring, sometimes takes a hot Scotch whisky punch. Madame Carnot's dinners are said to be perfect, and the French President has established the custom of entering the dining hall at the hour mentioned for dinner. This avoids all disagreeable dc lay, aud it is a good lesson to guests who are inclined to be unpunctual. “Mrs. Kate Chase," says a Washing ton letter, “is still ns brilliant in conver sation, as charming in mnnuers and ex quisitely cultivated ns in the old days which she was the proud daughter of the Chief Justice of the United States, the - unrivalled queen of Washington so ciety." Bonnets for little girls from one to three years are of velvet, matching the cloak in color. The large crowns and fronts arc all in one piece, laid in plaits toward the front, and finished with plaited silk around the face, with inside caps of lace footing and white baby ribbon. A convenient little article to wear over a garment of cloth or silk, not fur trimmed, is a pelerino of ostrachan, with puiuut lu uvmcni t-uu Hiiuuiuure auu over the bust about half the length of the waist, and finished with a high open collar, which allows frco movement of the head. Buy a silver broad platter with a snake design running along the edge, spread it with a doylie of drawn linen, put a loaf of crusty bread on it, have the butler pass it round the table, and the manner in which your guest breaks off a piece will be a measure for judgiug of his high breeding. Dove or ijuaker gray is the most rea sonable and also the most becoming shade of this most trying color. It com bines well with Effel, pale rose, blue, water green, canary yellow, flamingo red, ana other shades of bright and posi tive color, with crenni, pure white, black, sliver and gold, copper and steel. For all heavy plaids anfii -stuffs the English skirt is selected. There, are three breadths or full gores, with a per fectly plain front and sides, barring the few folds taken on each side, and all the fullness massed in the middle of the bock and laid pleat upon pleat. This ar rangement fills out the hollow left by the bustle in so many figures.
