AsroB I --------- north 3w CATHERINE THE GREAT. southeat section Terms An Odd Woman Was This Empress Welsh, of the Russians. 13th, 19 A recent writer says of Catherine the Great, empress of Russia from the - year 1762 to 1796: "She rose at 6 and lit her own fire. Her table was ideally simple. From the reproach of overeating and over drinking she was free. Though she J C could not sing a note, she and Prince Dashkoff, who could sing no better, oc. C easlonally performed In a concert. A sudden burnt of the most exalted and Cai ridiculous discordant tones was the Roo00 consequence, one seconding the other, with scientitic shrugs and all the sol- 88sme emn, self complacent airs and grimaces of musicians. From this perhaps she passed to a cat Cnucert and imitated the purring of a cat in the most droll and ludicrous manner, always taking IU care to add appropriate, half comic, half sentimental words, which she In vented for the occasion, or else, spitting J like a cat in a passion, with her back up, she suddenly boxed the first person in her way, making up her hand into a paw and mewing outrageously." i When playing whist one night Cather- Fir Ine could not get her page to answer Kindi the bell. "After she had rung twlee, again without effect, she left the room, her looking daggers, and did not reappear rity for a considerable time. The company two supposed that the unfortunate page was destined to Siberia or at least the per- knout. As a matter of fact, Catherine e. on entering the antechaml)er found the ook page, like his betters, busy at whist. and '"Wh'en the bell ranIn he happened to have so interesting a hand that he could not make up his mind to quit it. Now, what did the empress do? She M. dispatched the page on her errand and a then quietly sat down to hold his cards and until he should return." ons of THE AGRA DIAMOND. .ers his Odd Manner In Which It Was Smug gled Out of India. ad- Like runmany other dialmonds, the Agra en- diamond has had adventures. It gets ent its name from the fact that it was tak en at the battle of Agra in 1520 by the Emperor Baler, who was the founder i. of the Mogul empire in India. The Marquis of Donegall was in Agra in 1857, when the diamond was taken ch, from the king of Delhi. Donegall was is- at the time engaged as secretary and nd belonged to the same regiment as the ent young olicer who ol)btained possession ial of the diamond. It was resolved ~b- among them to smuggle it home to England rather than give it up and to share in the loot money. The question arose how were they to get it home. 'ps No one seemed able to hit upon a ter method that would be likely to meet ge with success until the last evening pre vious to the departure of the regiment. During the course of dinner the youn gest subaltern suddenly jumped up and 11s said: "I have it. We will conceal the of diamond in a horse ball and make the de horse swallow it." This met with gen t.- eral approbation, a ball was secured, o_ the inside scooped out, the diamond in serted, the end stopped up and the horse made to swallow it. e When the regiment reached the port ts of embarkation the horse was taken k. ill and had to be shot. The diamond n- was taken from his stomach and h. brought over to England. It was sub he sequently sold to the Duke of Bruns ,d wick, and since then it has been recut from a forty-six carat stone to thirty one and a half carats in order to get rid of the black spots in it, and it is 4 the most perfect and brilliant diamond , of a rose pink color. Andrew Johnson's Writing, t- The letters of President Taylor are t n rare, but perhaps those of Andrew Johnson are the rarest, as he did but little of his own writing. His son - conducted most of his correspondence and signed his father's name to the Ii 'S letters. It is related that one reason ;, why President Johnson wrote so little 8 e was owing to an accident which hap pened to him when he was working at his trade as tailor. One day a tailor's r heavy iron goose fell on his arm, so injuring that member that he found it extremely difficult to indulge in pen manship thereafter. Andrew Johnson was the poorest writer among the presidents as well as the rarest. His c handwriting was very much of a . scrawl and can scarcely be deciphered i by the average reader. Natural Cross of Pearls. - Some curious things have been found ý Sin the briny3 deep, but one of the odd 1 est is an ecclesiastical emblem made W Sof pearls which was washed ashore on - the coast of West Australia. There are Snine good sized gems in this lnMtural curiosity. These have been joined to gether to form a perfect Latin cross. Seven pearls of equal size comprise the upright ani( two more form the trans verse piece. The joining has been the work of nature. The odd prize, dis- Ab cov-ered in a pearl oyster, Is said to be worth at least $0,000. It is called the Cbi Great Southern Cross pearl. ni BANKRUPT SALE. Atwood E.
