A Chapter en fro clout mton*m
A Mr. j Streeter a well known Lon
don jeweler, who in retiring from
business owing to falling eyesight gave
some chatty reminiscences of his exper
iences, which began In 1348. A Street
er Sr., by the way, was in business as a
jeweler in the reign of Queen Anne.
It was the present Mr. Streeter who
practically satisfied the world that dia
monds were to be (ound in South Afri
ca. He was nearly ruined by the flood-
Ing cf the aparket with Cape diamonds;
but nowadays, as he said the other day,
''diamonds are as dear as ever and
they will be dearer still, for, owing to
labor it is not probable that
many diamonds will be cut this year in
A in* ten him. Then thqre*re no Bra
'fhere are very few aoyr either from
.Brazil or India. The iniues.do not pay
"Is the diamond still the most fash
ionable stone?" Mr. Streeter waa asked.
"No, the emerald; as the colored
stone must have a few diamonds to
Uirow it up. Emeralds, when I was a
youngster, were $20 a parat. To-day a
fine stone is worth $2,000. A gO-grain
pearl I used to sell at $4' 10. To-day it
would be worth $:i,OOO. Rubies and
sapphires have gone up also, but not so
much in proportion.
"During your long experience some
stones must have come in and gone out
''Yes the cats-eye for example.
'■I bought them in twenty years ago.
Then there was the Alexanderite. I
named it after the then Emperor of
Russia. It is a stone which is green in
daylight and red at night."
''What about the settings?"
"They aro lighter than they used to
be. The fashion is to set precious
stones in platinum, because platinum
.never tarnishes. I don't think with
platinum we get ns miK'h brilliancy out
of the stone as with silver, but silver in
foggy weather goes Mack. Never buy
a diamond set in gold. If you see one
in a pold mount you may be suspicious.
A yellow stone painted with black ink
looks white, and it i» then set in gold.
That is the way in which many pawn
brokers in the North have been taken
in. Yellow diamonds, except they are
very fine, do not sell cv.en. In India
or Burmah they all want white."
Recalling the loss of a diamond worth
.$25,000. Mr. Stnzeter described how it
had been sfplen by queans of a muff,
which it? .owner het^ over the case
where t^e goods were displayed. It
opened jind snapped up a brooch. La
ter a wQman wad arrested, but she bud
sent the big diamond to America, and,
though it was traced, it was never re
covered. Mr. Streeter said the largest
diamond he had ever seen, weighed
ab^t I,OQO carats, and was owned by a
syndicate of dealers. Its value com
plete would be about J^QOO.OOO, but
it is now being cut up.
The most observant students of hu
man nature, and those who most cor
rectly read the history of the heart,
jieem to be agreed that the first love
js not fhe best love. By , them this
fM«su>Q j» portrayed as coming to those
jvbo expedience it for a second time
with a fervor, strength, intensity and
capacity for patient waiting such
as it rarely has in its earlier manifesta
tion. This is a truth- so generally
recognized that it has passed into an
adage that the second wife or husband
is more prized than the first. Some
indeed do not love either the one or
>,he other, for we err if we always infer
love because there has been a mar
riage. Many men and women are in
capable of this greatest and purest of
sentiments. Of those endowed with
a capacity of this kind there is most
generally a.. romantic, demonstrative
and rather foolish sentiment proceed
ing the deep, abiding affection which
is to continue through life. Not a few
marry upon this and find, all too late,
that what they conceived to be love
was but the impulse of an undisciplined
heart. Such a mistake Dickens has
with masterly skill described n David
Copperfield's marriage to Dora Sponlow.
Thackeray has 1 with more artistic touch
shown.how.Lady Castlowood gradually
Ipst.the, love which she had given in
profusion to the husband of her youth
and began to cultivate a purer
and more rational' affection for the
plain but wise little, boy who worshiped
her from the moment ho first saw her.
In his Amelia Osbourne too he assigns
to that lqve—which she offered to pt/or
. Dobbin after his long, patient waiting—
a higher rank than that blind and foo,l
ish homage which she had given to
that graceless scamp, George Osborne.
Our female Shakespeare.George Elliot,
also gives to second love a preference
over the first. Adam Bedes' fondness
for the pretty, kitten-like beauty of
Hettie is all along spoken of as silly.
His affection for Dinah Is marked by a
depth and fervor worthy of his mature
manhood. Dorothea Brooke never lov
ed but once, but he whom she lored
was her second hus band. In all these
representations these artists have cop
led nature. It is no violation of truth
when the novelist called the second love
the stongest, the purest, the best. —Ex.

Many of us fail because we do not for

He knows the past is irrevocable. He

Need of Monte Missionaries
| We sorrow for the Siberian exile,who
I of course never committed a crime, and
' we read tales of fiction of his heroic en
durance and patient slave labor in a
temperature that sent the mercury
down to cuddle in a heap 50 degrees be
low zero, yet in Bay City, Mich., as late
as last week, the truant officer found a
family, of whom the husband and one
child were sick; there was no fuel in the
house and the children were kept in
bed for warmth, the mother being un
able to seek outside assistance, having
no shoes in | which to wade the slush.
Some provisions and fuel were left at
the house for temporary relief. In the
midst of our sad song 1 of ''Greenland's
Icy Mountains" and "The Siberian Ex
ile," we might pause ' sometimes and
lend assistance and a few stanzas of
heart ache to the inmates of frozen
huts in our own beloved freeland. Why
search for misery abroad when we can
find stacks of it at home?
Fashion* for Dog*
The following foreign dispatch indi
cates that dam-fooliahness has gone to
3Bed in the old world;
Fashions for Parisian dogs include
many novelties, such as colored cam
bric night shirts, rubber shoes, thick
fluffy dressing gowns to wear after a
bath; straw and felt hats special wicker
sofas, cushioned and Ivdecked with gar
lands and ribbons; nail files, ear picks,
powder boxes and vaporizers. At the
dogs'dressmakers in the Palais Royal
this week was a white, hairy cloth over
coat bordered with white mohair
galons, a red velvet collar and a pocket
for the handkerchief.
Mow It* m Olsoaso
Is love a disease? is a question which
some of the London papers have been
thrashing out more or less satisfactory
for gome time past and now the Lancet
has gravely contributed to the discus
This medical weekly declares that
the idea of love being really a disease
has the sanction of venerable antiquity
and apart from thp Greek and Roman
classics is also a commonplace of the
seventeenth century writers on medi
The Lancet goes on to quote a num
ber of authorities from Galen to Lar
stius and concludes thus:
"The Dutch and Flemish painters of
the later half of the same century found
in love sickness a favorite subject for
some of their paintings. Ladis suffer
ing from ibis disease are accurate por
trayals of the anaemic condition."
