PLACE YOUR ORDERS - F ) 11 Testing Diamonds in India. The Hindoos distinguish diamonds ac cording to their color. The white rank first and are called Brahmins, the yel low are known as Kshatris, the dusky as Vaishyas and the flawed stones as Sudra3. The diamond dealers are chiefly Marwarees a race who are the chief bankers and money lenders in India. These men are perfectly acquainted with the phosphorescent and electric qualities of the diamond, and they are also aware of the extreme uniformity of its specific gravity. A boiling solution of some salt of zinc, called by the natives "Tutenagum bas- pam," which solution has a specific gravity of 3.3, is used for the weight test. Into this solution the stones sub mitted for examination are thrown. Those that float are rejected as not be ing diamonds, the Marwarees knowing that the diamond has a specific gravity of 3.52. The stones that sink are then exam ined. The larger pieces are rubbed with a silk handkerchief to excite their elec tric properties and held near light sub stances, as small pieces of tissue paper. Diamonds thus rubbed readily attract lijrht substances. The phosphorescent How an Arab Loves. An ArjiV Iovps nq rtrvnp bnt nn Arab can Jove, out ne is aiso migniny exciu- h""'""-- --i able and easily won. An Arab sees a girl bearing water or brushwood and in a moment, almost at a glance, is as madly in love as if he had passed years of courtship. He thinks of nothing else, cares and dreams of nothing else but the girl he loves, and not infrequently. if he is disappointed in his affection, he pines and dies. In order to commence his suit he Bends for a member of the girl's tribe, and first insuring his secrecy bv a solemn oath confesses his love and entreats his confidant to arrange an interview. The confidant goes to the girl, gives her a liower or a blade of grass and savs: Swear by him who made this flower and us also that you will not reveal to i& true not only of soapv water, but of any ouo mat wmcn i am auout to un- th clearest and purest water as well.

Cut stones which have been tested as above are then examined by boys es pecially trained, who sort them accord ing to their color and flaws, and it is very seldom that these youngsters make a mistake, so sharp are their e3Tes in de tecting flaws and shades of color. The appraisement according to size is finally made by the seniors. Mining and Engineering. A Curious Property of Water.

If she is favorably dis posed to the match she answers: "1 swear by him who made the flower you hold and us," and the place and time of meeting are settled. Theseoaths are never broken, and it is not long be fore the ardent lover becomes the happy husband. Million. The Cireek Story of the First Woman. The first woman created, according to heathen Greek mythology, was Pandora. h'he was made of clay by Vulcan, at the meshes. Insects and plants utilize this fact in many interesting ways, oome water plants, whose leaves float on the water, have a very simple contrivance to keep the upper surfaces of the leaves dry. Thi3 consists of a great number of mi nate hairs covering the tops of the leaves. Water cannot penetrate among these hairs even when the leaves are forced down beneath the surface.

This was recalled to my mmd yester day when I entered a Woodward avenue book store, where a grave gentleman pre sides, and asked him if he had a ''pretty child's book." "Blond or brunette?" he inquired. "Oh-h!" I stammered. "Why do you ask that?" I suppose you want the book to har- momze, or you would not uave toiu me the child was pretty.' I saw wherein 1 had erred, but had my revenge, tor tne nrst tiling l reaa in the Ixjok he handed me was this phrase, "Ellen burst into tears." "Here," I said, "I don't want my her- ome m pieces please give me a wnoie one," and I called his attention to the remarkable physiological fact. Detroit Free Press.

A 'Wealthy Squatter. James Tyson, the richest squatter in Australia, was originally a coachman. He saved a little money and invested in stock, which turning out profitably left him the possessor of 500. With this sum, not a large one for the pur pose, he began grazing, and as he worked hard and scarcely spent any thing in a few years he counted his wealth by muny figures. He started on fifteen shillings a week, and today he is worth over 3.000,000 and owns more sheep and cattle than any other two squatters in the world. London Tit Bits. Typographical Error.
