Scientists Have Succeeded In Pluck- Ing Real Diamond* and Rublee from the Crucible of the Furnace. Recent advices from France state that Prof. Molssun. the emiueul sci entist and Inventor, bus actually suc ceeded In making geuuine diamonds and rubles. Ho employs for ibis pur pose the electric furnace, which has been so Improved that a degree of beat can be produced, approaching tho extreme temperatures, which were un doubtedly a factor in the formation of mlnurala and gems in the Interior of the earth. Tho rubles obtained are of large alxe, weighing 10 or 15 carats, and In quality and color equal and even sur pass thoso found In the earth. The natural forces attending the formation of diamonds seem to have been more complicated, and so far the diamonds resulting from the efforts of the sci entists have been very small, but still they are positively Identified as tho carbon crystal—tho diamond. They are remarkably clear and h-lght. and on a small scale as fine specllnens as nature’s own product. Tho electric furnace hat enriched chemistry with a whole series of new compounds. Probably thj one of most value to mankind at large Is Cal cium Carbide. The altnplo applica tion of water to Calcium Carbide gen era ten tho gas Acetylene, which Is now being commonly used for light ing. The peculiar merit* of Acetylene light are Its brilliance and high can dle power, ease of Inutallatlon. eco nomy and its adaptability for lighting buildings of every description, regard less of their location.

How China Boycott* America. Since tho boxer uprising nothing has hapix'ncd to stir up the people of Chinn so much ns tho present agitation against the United Stutcs. says a Cheo- Foo correspondent of I<csllc*s Weekly. This 1* a commercial demonstration made *n view of the renewal of thu treaty between these two countries r«*. garding the entrance and residence of Chinese subjects in the United States. Thu present movement is one to boy cott all American trade, ull schools conducted by Americans, nnd nil American employers in all the inirts of China. It ranges from Singapore on tho south to Tlen-Tsln on the north, aod from Shnnghni on the east coast to Ichang in the west, a thousand miles up the Yangtse river. It is most virulent nt Canton nnd Shanghai. Tho powerful Chinese merchant guilds aro pushing tho matter, nnd as they Imvu branches in every port city of China they wield considerable power. Even tho old Empress Dowager, who prob ably had never spent n thought before on tho difficulties of n Canton coolie entering the Golden Gate, hns been led to express her sympathy with her “ill treated children.” The student class, who arc much con cerned In the treaty, have taken up the movement eagerly, nnd ns n result ono mission school in Shnnghni had to closo Its doors, and several other larger institutions were depleted of a large number of students because of this boy cott. Meetings aro held to agitato thu subject, nnd placards are distributed or posted In conspicuous places. STRONGER THAN MEAT. A Judge’s Opinion of Grape-Nuts. A gentleman who lias acquired • Judicial turn of mind from cxperlcnco on the bench ont. in tho Sunflower State, writes a carefully considered opinion as to tho value of Grape-Nuts as food. Ho says: “For tho past 5 years Grape-Nuta has been a prominent feature in our bill of fare. “Tho crisp food with tho dc-llcious, nutty flavor has become an Indispensa ble necessity in my family’s everyday life. “It has proved to be most healthful and beneficial, and has enabled us to practically abolish pastry and pies from our table, for tho children prefer Grape-Nuts and do not crave rich and unwholesome food. “Grape-Nuts keeps us all In perfect physical condition—as a preventive of disease it is beyond value. I have been particularly impressed by the benefi cial effects of Grape-Nuts when used by ladles who are troubled with face blemishes, skin eruptions, etc. It clenrs up the complexion wonderfully. “As to Its nutritive qualities, my ex perience Is that one small dish of Grape-Nuts is superior to a pound of moat for breakfast, which Is an im portant 'consideration for anyone. It satisfies the appetite and strengthens the power of resisting fatigue, while its use involves none of the disagree able consequences that sometimes fol low a meat breakfast.” Name given by Postum Co., Baltic Creek, Mich.

Colo., Sept. 7.—A mighty anthem was sung to the glory of tho meu who saved the flag, from the great throng that wedged luto tho heart of Denver yesurday morning. This parade of the G. A. R. encamp ment will bo written In history aa the one that looseued the hearts of the Queeu City and the Centennial State until the luuumnins re-echoed the songs of battle and the cheers of the multitude, that swelled forth for more than five hours. It will be written of in years to come as the ono that had no flaw; the grand parade that con tained more peoplo in a given space than any yet held, and that rall<*d forth a spirit of enthusiasm that has not been witnessed by the veterans of the war *luc« the days when their vic tories were fresh in the hearts of the Union. Denver, holding for the day almost as many more as Its normal popula tion. did magnificently. It honored the soldiers signally by giving them the full freedom of the streets; its people showered upon them flowers In ebuudance and In every way gave them a true western we Irony. Without a moment’s delay, without a single break In thu lines, tho holi day throng behaving admirably, with out an accident of any kind, tho pa rade was a pronounced success. Praise for the day's triumph Is due not one but many. George W. Cook, chairman of the executive committee, was tho hero of the hour, as ho has been of the whole encampment, and with him are the heads of his staff and Grand Army of the Republic's local committee. The mayor and police force can not he given too much credit. No city hns ever had »urh a holiday appearance. It was colored ns with a giant brush in thu national colors. Flays and streamers nnd festoons were everywhere. Tho city was at its best, i Throughout every portion of tin* dl* : trlct embraced In the parade the side | walks were packed nnd thu buildings ! were alive. Never anything approach i lug the scenes on the main streets has I been seen here, and it will In* a long time before they can be duplicated. 1 The Grand Army of thf Republic was . signally honored. i The extent of the parade Is quite ac- I curately summarized, as follows: j Number of veterans In line. 12.500. , Number of persons witnessing pa ! rade. 123.000. i Number of bands in parado. 50.

An hour and live minutes later the chief of police nnd hi* cordon stepped front Broadway Into the front of the reviewing stand. And a min ' ute Inter Commander-In-Chief King and his staff were up and had din -1 mounted nnd Joined the dlstlngulßhed gathering of soldier* and civilian* in tho stand. Tie? flat? drap'd in mem ory of the dead commander, was placed In the center of the stand. And the march past began in pres •nee of the chief executive of the state and the hcnc officer of thu city, tho commander of the department or the Colorado a id his staff In full uniform, and tho dllxcns of Denver who have been prominent in aiding tho work of tho local committees, and their ladles. Colonel George K. Randolph, grand marshal of the day. mounted nnd young again, chosen for the office by reason of hi* record on tho field of battle, had I not a trying office. Everyt,. ig hail been arranged beforehand *o perfectly* i Hint the machine was automatic. The grand stand held G.OOO people. It took up tho magnificent chorus or approvn! Hint sounded far up from Larimer street nnd cheered and cheered, nnd then sang. From the beginning the soldicra bore the trophies or the march. They were laden nt the? beginning with flowers. If Denver citizens were too lavish at the outset they could not bu blamed. But not a veteran appeared without a reminder of Denver's gratitude, how ever small and homely and modest It might have been. Illinois, claiming Grant nnd other he roes cJ the war, had first place. Tho place goes by seniority of posts; but this state was entitled to the honor perhaps for other reasons. In num bers !?. was marvelous und tho posts looked Bplendid. Bands there were In plenty. Music made the nir lively with melody. “John Brown's Body” nnd ull the famous airs of the war and after sounded sweet n»c ever to the men on parade. Tiro old Dcndwood stage conch brought up tho rear of the stale with the veterans who DISSATISFACTION IN JAPAN. Police Disperse Meetings in Tokio and Trouble Follows. Tokio, Sept. 7.—Rioting broke out here Tuesday night In connection with the dissatisfaction over the result or the peaco settlement. There were several clashes with the police nnd It is estimated that two were killed nnd 600 wounded. The rioting censed at midnight. Po lice stations were the only property destroyed. The government newspa per office was attacked. The first turbulence attendant on tho popular anger over the terms or peace arranged with Russia took place last night. A mass meeting to protest against the action, of the government was called to tnke place at Hlhl.va Park, but tho metropolitan police closed the gates nnd attempted to prevent the assemblage of tho people. The municipality protested agnlnst the action of the police and finally the gates were thrown open und a large crowd gathered nnd voted In favor of resolutions declaring the nation hu miliated and denouncing tho terms upon which the treaty of peaco was arranged. Tho crowd was serious in Its conduct rather than angrv, and the police handled It discreetly. wore too weak to march. It took lilt noia twenty-two minutes to pas* tho re viewing stand aud thu m*-u did not dally or limp. Next, the "Badger State.” Wisconsin, was led by the Pike’s Peak drum corp* aud although the uumbers did not compare In number* with tho stalo that preceded, nevertheless thu show ing was good and .ho veterans of (ho famous “Iron Brigade” were rewarded. Thu first thing that struck thu on looker as the advauce guard of Penn sylvania approached uud pushed on was tho number of wounded, cripples and one-armed, but who marched man fully forwurd. nl*o calling for cheera for thu host of the day. A huge buckeye preceded Ohio, also thu "Bob” Browu rooters. i»ul Ohio turned out splemlldly iu evefy respect. New York's turnout was sple and *pau The department heads with Cor poral Tannei In a carriage appeared and were given ooruin! greeting. But yesterday It was not so much the indi vidual as It was the flag. When the tattered old flag of th* Thirty-second New Yo r k appeared fluttering above a gray-haired veteran who bore It. the applause was deafen ing. The “Slur Spangled Banner" ro*o Impromptu. Connecticut was preceded by tho “lady colonel” on horseback. The Nut meg Slate wait all right for wbat there was of it. but that was not so very much.
