CATHERINE THE GREAT. southeat
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."
of THE AGRA DIAMOND.
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
