Third, tho interior coloring.
The doubl . piercing, indispensable
for ibo < ord to pass through which unites
flin pearls and forms a necklace, la clono
at thc moinont when tho spherical glass
adhering to tho tubo is still ductile.
The lir i holo is made in the lower part
of tho pi url In tho breath only of the
workman, and the second is naturally
formed by thc opening lo tho tube when
tho pearl is si paral, d' from ii by means
of a light blow.
This work ls requited in tho prepara
tion of lill beads; but. lu fore pltsslltg
on, we would call tho attention of tho
reader, and especially of ladies, lo ono]
kind WO moan Oriental pearl-, which, j
ns lin n* name indicates, must be tho
most exact imitation p tssiblu of llioso
produced by Nature.
Although made in exactly tho same,
manner as tho mosl ordinary hoads,
thc e pearls are yet distinguished from
i h. in, not only by the employment of
opalescent '.'ia-vs, but ?till moro hy tho
care tho blower takes in (hoir format ion,
as well us by tho different coloring they
ri ce.vc in the lui irior.
As for thc hape, every ono knows how
rare it ls to ?ind a pearl without defects
and defects uot in material but in form,
un 1 si ll moro in color. A singlo exnn
plo will Bellico P? siiow how difficult it is
to lind immy pearls almost alike in
form am! lint? Tho peatl necklace bo?

The wot:, of the blower hoing, as wo
have said, t.> imitate nature as much a?
possible, lil talent consists not only in
destroying tin- exact regularity obtained
by tho blowing, but also In producing
011 t?;? fal e pearl the defects Usually
found in natural tm s. This work 1*0
fiirce much practice, nnd is only tho
nit of lon.: Observation? The good
o ty cr. the artist, should be sufllcii ntly
.quainted With natural pearls to exc
elle tm hl? (-wu tinly the defects which
|nmv Incrcn ..tic value ?>f his work by
skillfully pu ; ar. d rollcctlons. To ob
tain lids' liupi rtnnl result, tho blowor,
profiting bj ibo moment when thc pearl
still adheres lo tho (nbc, tokes a rory
small h rib palet, with which ho strikes
lightly ci ri tin parts of iho small mal
leable pearl, and it ls only hy this last
opt ration, which places hero a protu
berance, ti,, rv a flnttonlng, both almost
Imperceptible, that ho succeeds in pro
ducing a pearl which, losing its mathe*
math al regularity, la conies tho perfect
nutation of nature.

Although the work ot Coloring of

for all pearls, lt win bo easily under

This 'labor id ecu. ;.|iy iitinudcd to wo
mon-some specially employed in color
ing tho common, ?md others tho finer,
Wo shall only occupy ourselves with
the work of tho latter, which, wo re
peat, merely differs from that of tho
other from its greater ('?nish.
Each workwoman has before her n
serlos of small compart ments, contain
ing altogether several thousand pearls,
arranged so that each of them should
present the side having thc orifice
pierced hy tho blower
Before Introducing tho coloring sub
stance, which Would bo too easily de
tached from the gln&S ?f p were not by
some means moro llrmly theed, every
pearl has lo receive inside a, very llffld
coating t f a glue which is perfectly
colorless, being mad? from parchment.
This la}er being equally spread over tho
Interior of every [wari, tho workwoman
takes advantage of tho moment when
tho glue is .--till damp and begins tho
work of coloring, properly so called.
After having taken up the thin and
hollow lube, and soaking it in tho bleak
paste, tho workwoman Introduces a
certain quantity into each of thu pearls
by her breath ; and would \ou know
how many she must do i.i a day lo ( li
able her to car i thc modest sum of
from '?9 7d io 4d? Forty thousand!
For every thousand glued" and lilied
with tho paste ls only paid at the rate of
about one pon ny.
Colored beads are il? nc in exactly tho
same way; but, Instead of the bleak
tiaste, a paste' ol tho color desired \i
down Into them.
Mountaineer Trout.
Not long since. I followed one of theso
da lling 1 rout-streams from tho valley
up tho mountain
Nature seemed lo have done her best
to ploted the li',!.' lidies that lived in
thu dark deep po ?]s and eddies. Tho
high or I climbed up tho mountain, tho
morn lish [found; tho stream became n
succession,of falls, sonn? of which wore
three feet or more in height-tho brook
In ?ts track forming steps down the
mountain and 1 began to wonder how
the fish carno lo be up there.
In the village, 1 chanced to mention
the subject lo a friend who owned a mill
on tho Mime, stream; and ho told mo
that the fish s* ascent was Q puzzle to
him. until one ?lay his boy callad him
out to tho ?lam, where tho riddle was
solved. Thc dam was nearly four feet
high, and to relieve the stream, several
auger-holes had been bored in it, allow
ing a small stream of water to jot fore!
hiv out and go splashing down into tho
char pool below. As my friend ap
proached the. spot, and looked through
tho bushes, several lurgC-sizcd trout were
moving about under tho mimic fall,
evidently in groat excitement, and dart
ing into it ns ii enjoying tho splash and
roar of thc water.
Suddenly, one of the tish made a quick
rush that sont it up thc falling stream,
so that ii nbuosl gainedJJui top; but by
nn unlucky turn it was caught and
thrown back into the pool, whore it
darted away, evidently much startled.
Soon another made the attempt, dart
ing at it like thc first, and then rapidly
swimming up tho fall, but only to meet
the fate of its predecessor. This was
tried a number of times, until Anally, a
trout larger than the others made a
dash, mounted tho Stream, and entered
the round hole. Tho observers were al
most really to clap their hands, but it
was not successful yet. As tho water
stopped (lowing for a moment, they saw
I (hut though the athletic trout had sur
mounted the fall? th(i hole was too small
i for it to pass through, and there tho
poor ll -li was lodged. Tho lookers-on
na t' ned to relieve it, and lound that
its side or pectoral lins worn caught in
tin- wood, but by pushing tho Hali ahead,
which you may be .-ure they did, they
liberated ii, mid ?t darted aua\ Into tho
lipper pond.
Hero, then, was the explanation. The
trout climbed tho mountain by swim
ming up tho fulls, darting up the foam
ing ina--es. and adopting every expedi
ent lo accomplish their journey. For
these fish di posit their eggs high up
stream, 80 that tho young fry. when
hatched, may not he disturbed by pred
atory fish and other foes living in the
lower waters.--C. F. Holder, in St.
A Born Drummer.
