This sort of thing was kept up for ten months. Ono day last week a woman living in the neighborhood called on the Scott family and tho youngsters were rolling the golden ball about the floor. Tho woman picked it up, examined it closely and said: "Why, there's a crease right around tho center of It." The two women went to work on it until the gold ball was opened, and right in the center or It was a dazzling and precious gem. A consultation was held among the neighbors 'and Scott took tho diamond down to Chafer & Becker's and showed it to Mr. Becker, who advised him to ad vertise it.

II. Hill, of this city. About forty years ago tho doctor visited the paper mill at Vas salboro, and after looking over the ma chinery suggested the feasibility of using wood, and asked why the manufacturers did not get a few bales of excelsior from Augusta, where it was made, and try tho experiment of making paper from wood. "It can't be done," said the manufactur ers. "Have not you as much gumption as tho hornets, whose nests are made of wood paper?" asked the doctor. The re sult of tho conversation was a letter, somo timo later, from the firm's whole sale agents In Boston, asking what they were putting In their paper to make it so much better than it had been. It was tho wood, then first used in this way,- Kennebec (Ke.)JouroaJ. v , 1 I .. " ri a K .V Jt TTI &. jLsgLaJitoisaAstejij &ifo$f&J v. At'U - Ht,
