Tarndoxical as It may appear., tho icri'ectiou of a gem Is largely due to Home imperfection, lu Its maUe. Some ttlo mistake made in tho laboratory of nature produces a defective stone which Is perfection Itself from the lap idary's point of view. Nlncty-uine out every hundred emeralds dug from the mine nre almost white and of llttto nine, but the hundredth one Is of a rich velvety green and, If without oth er flaws than Its color, sells tor $300 a carat or 240 times as much, as Its col orless brother. The reason of the rlcii color which gives the emerald Its value Is that nature, In making the stone, put In too much oxide of chromium. Just as the cook sometimes gets too much sal- oratus In the biscuits. The standard or perfection 1n the laboratory of nature Is the colorless emerald, and her deep green ones are some of her failures; failures which, nevertheless, iicugui mankind, however much they may dis gust nature. You could buy a ton of oxide of chromium for the price which hnlf a grain of It gives to a cheap ami common crystal. When nature makes mistakes in maii- iifnctnrinir diamonds, the results ,im eminllv remarkable. Her standard for diamond Is a pure white stone, out . sometimes a foreign substance gets lino the crucible, and the result Is ii red or blue diamond. A flue white brilliant oi oue carat cun be bought for $125, but a blue stone of that size would be cheap ut $3,500. A red diamond is of even crentcr value, a red stone of tiuecn grains having been sold for $5,000. let the little particle or loreigu n.u. .-... which nature carelessly let lan nm. m.: mixture vJien she was making that stone dowit In the heart of some prime- jl volcano is of less value tnan a grain of common salt ami om.i there by mistake. Nature manufactures in nor uioiua.u- . . . . . i V.. .Mil ry a material caneu simn -.. buv a block of spinel as large as you can carry for a few dollars. Sometimes In making spinel small quantities j chromic acid get into the material and color it a deep red. The pieces so col ored nature rejects as spoiie.1 in m. making and throws them m tu bin. from which men dig them out and call them rubies. A ruby of thirty-two carats recently sold for $52,000. Yet the material of the cheap spinel aud the valuable ruby are practically the same, save fur that small fraction of chromic acid which got Into the ruby by mistake. When nature starts out to manufac trn nnnk she endeavors to make them without any cracks in them. In this ahe seldom succeeds, coming nearest to wrfeetlnl. in tllC MCXlCUn OIllllS, Wlllcll have few cracks In them and therefore iu,i i,,utr The fiery clow of tnc on eutal opal and the play of light in the depths of that exquisite stone are due cnt'rely to the numberless cracks which seam the surface of the gem. It must give nature a poor opinion of nmnkind when she sees him selling the i,.vi,.mi onnls. wlilcli are nearly per feet for 12 cents a carat and paying - n carat for her failures, the cracked tire opal of the cast. Not only in gems, but in many other things, does nature make mistakes and failures, the results of which arc high ly valued" by man. The cliank shell, a shell much iike the conch shell of these shores, Is one of the commouest shells on the benches of India, and millions of them are gathered aud burned for the lime that is in them. Yet iu a tem ple near Kaudy, Ceylon, nre two chauk shells which hold tlie place of honor iu a shrine covered with gold, and no amount of money could buy them from their guardian priests. Their value consists in the fact that nature was not m.ite herself the morning she laoricai- ed these shells and gave a right hand ed twist to them instead or a leu uuuu ed one, such as has been given to all other chunk shells, so fur as man knows, since the beginning. Baron Itothschild once paid $300 a dozen for some Schloss Johannisherg wine, aud it is admitted that, taking everything Into consideration, it was not an cxirbitant price. Yet the wiue of the same year from the vineyard di rectly ndjoiuing the Johaunisborg vine yard, on the same bank of the Hhiue, a vineyard whoso soil Is, to all appear ances, the same, only brought $5 a dozcu. And there Is no special secret about the manufacture of Johaunisborg wine or abuut the variety of grape used. Us great value comes from a little Joke of nature. In the soil of the Johannisherg vineyard there is an luflnitesima: amount of a certain salt which is found in the soil of no other vineyard. The admixture is so slight that no chemist has ever been able to Imitate it, yet it is worth many thou sands a year to the owner of the viue ya id. HOME STUDY COURSE EdiUd by E. BENJAMIN ANDREWS. LL.

The Irving family, though with a proclivity for letters, were not descendants of a long line of cultivated ancestors, as was often the case with New Eng land authors. Young Washington himself was through his school days at 10 and. though a bookish boy, wus also a stroller over Manhattan Island with a keen eye for what was going on and a wistful gazo after the sails that filled away for lands remote. "The History of Now York From the Beprlnnlng of the World to the End of the Dutch Dynasty," with Its accounts of the unutterable proceedings of Walter the Doubter, the disastrous projects of Wlllium the Testy and tho chlvalrie achievements of Teter the Headstrong, came very near being what the anthor asserted, "the only authentic history of the times that ever hath been or ever will be written." If history is a reproduction of life, as well as a record of events, no better representation of a former age to Illustrate and ridicule the ongoings of a later one will likely be made by any successor of Dledrich Knickerbocker. For example: , "Such was the happy reign of Wouter Van Twllier, celebrated in many a long forgotten song as the real golden age, the rest being nothing but counter feit copper washed coin. In thut delightful period a sweet and holy calm reigned over the whole province. The burgomaster smoked his pipe In peace. The substantial solace of his domestic cares, after her daily tolls were done, sat soberly at the door with her nrms crossed over her apron of snowy white without being insulted by ribald street walkers or vagabond boys, those un lucky urchins who do so infest our streets, displaying under the roses of youth the thorns and briers of iniquity. Then it was that the lover with teu breeches and damsel with petticoats luilf a score Indulged lu all the endearments of virtuous love without fear and without reproach. Happy would it have been for New. Amsterdam could it always have existed in this state of blissful ignorance and lovely simplicity; but, alas, the days of childhood are too sweet to last." "The Sketch-Book of Geoff ery Crayon, Gent," Is what Its title Implies, a col lection of short, suggestive outlines of narration and incident struck olT with the fidelity to nature aud certainty of touch which licking to an accomplished artist. A few masterly" strokes reveal much more than themselves nml inti mate possibilities far beyond the li)!ted range which the author allowed him self. For example, everybody knows how Kip Van Winkle has tieen expanded by the dramatization to'whlch Joseph Jefferson has given a masterly interpre tation, and yet it Is a dull Imagination which has not seen the vagabond Hip, his dog and gun and termagant spouse and what was left of these after a 20 years nap as clearly portrayed in suggestive lines of Irving. "He looked round for his gun, but in place of the clean, well oiled fowling piece he found an old firelock lving by him. the barrel Inorusted with rust, the lock falling off and the stock wxrm eaten. He shook his head, shouldered the rusty gun and turned his steps homeward. He had now entered the skirts of the village. A troop of strange children ran at his heels, hooting after him ami pointing nt bis gray heard. The dogs, too, not one of which he recognised for an old acquaintance, barked at him as he passed. Strange names were over the doors strange faces at the windows-everythlng was strange." This is a portrayal to whose realism little can be added by brush or the living picture. It may be snperblv represented, but It was all there before the ordinary read er set in simnle words, but always the right ones in the right place. "It was with some dimculty tnat ne ioima iue n m u. own house, which he approached with silent awe, expecting every moment to bear the shrill voice of Dame Van Winkle. He found the house gone to decay, the roof fallen in, the windows shattered and the doors off the hinges. A half starved dog that looked like a wolf was skulking about It. Kip called him by name, but the cur snurled, showed his teeth and passed on. 'My very dog,' sighed poor Rip, 'has forgotten me!' " This seems simple and easy to do. The reader thinks that it is the very way be himself'should have described the old fellow If he had seen him. To test the matter, let the habit of Franklin be imitated. Bead the story once more and rewrite it; then compare revisions. After this the greater achieve- .. .. r .. l.,.,..,,.l f ment remains of Inventing or, it it was nn aiiniuau.... . . adapting the character to the drowsy atmosphere of the Catskllls. The genius which produced this, the "Legend of Sleepy Hollow,' and 30 other sketches was instantly recognized in England. Walter Scott's quick appreciation and generous assistance brought the new author into pleasant and profitable relations with th" chief publishers of Loudon, and after Scott, Byron and Murray led there was nothing that did not follow. An American had found bis place in the fraternity of letters and without bnting a Jot of hi patriotism or sparing the truth in speaking of English prejudices estab ished himself for live years in thf literary metropolis, where he could best do his work and tind a market for It. Irving, however, was coming to he a cosmopolite. England did not keep him too long. By 1S20 he Is In Taris hobnobbing with Thomas Moore, follow lng up the theaters, catching notes of applause from across the channel, then going hack to win an Euglisb triumph ou English soil iu his "Bracebrldse Hall." No native could have pictured the life of a country squire more to the satisfaction of all England. There wns much In it with which the author him self had sympathy, ns well as with the people he describes. As if in half apol ogy to Americuns he says, "1 can never forget that this is my fatherland, and vet the circumstances under which I have viewed it have been by no means 'such as were calculated to produce favorable impressions." He then remarks that close observation will often change opinions, hastily formed, of a national character which shows its rough side first. Special mention Is made of the reception accorded to the essay in "The Sketch-Book" on literary feuds be tweeu England and America and the "geuerous sympathy in every English bosom toward a solitary individual lifting up his voice In a strange land to vindicate the character of his nation." This Indeed Is the eminence which Irving occupies, higher than tha- or being our tirst man of letters in the order of time. He was a peacemaker in an age of misunderstanding, jealousy and hostility. The 111 feeling consequent upon two wars had not wholly subsided. In letters there wus independent aspiration on one side, complacent superciliousness and sharp censoriousness ou the other. In this verv year Sydney Smith contemptuously asked. "Who ever reads an American book?" The one man who was able to reply to the taunt eould do it In his "English Writers on America." A few sentences will show the large and generous spirit in which this wns done. After observing that Impressions of this country had been gained from the worst kind of travelers he remarks that the prosperity founded upon political liberty and the general diffusion of knowledge cannot be overlooked; that it is of more consequence to England than to us that Justice he done and resentment allayed- that, "possessing the fouutaln head whence the literature of the language flows. It is in her power to make it the medium of amiable and mngniinimous feeling a strewn where the two nations might meet together and drink iu peace rind kindness." And to Americans he said: "Let It be the pride of our writers discarding all feelings of irritation, and disdaining to retaliate the illlberniitv of British authors, to speak of the English nation without preju dice and "with determined candor. Willie they rebuke the indiscriminating bigotry wih which some of our countrymen admire and imitate everything English because It Is English, let them frankly point out what is really worthy of approbation." The entire essay shows Irving in the character of a broad minded fearless daysman l.etween the two countries in a sphere more imiRr tant than diplomacy. "The mere contests of the sword." he says, "are tein perary but the slanders of the pen pier--e to the heart. They rankle lomiest in toe noblest spirit: they dwell ever present in the mind. Trace hostilities to their cause and they will he fennd to originate in the mischievous effusions of mercenary writers who coui-oct and circulate the veuom that is to Inflame the generous and the brave." Of Irving's later and more pretentious labors a corresponding amount mlcht be said They were the result of a wish, that came with advancing years to do more monumental work. After the "Tales of a Traveller" had been thrown off as In his opinion tho climax of his lighter diversions, for writing was no task when the mood seired him. he then entered upon the most proline period of his career at the age of 4. The year 1S2 found him at Mad rid to iK-ein his "Life of Columbus." This occupied two pleasant years and was succeeded by the "Companions" and this by the "Conquest of Granada and "The Alhambra" liefore 1H32, when he returned to America after a 17 years' ret.iden.-e In Europe. These larger achievements brought him academic honors from Oxfonl and the medal of the Loyal Society of Literature, with no end of epplatise abroad and at home. Then, after ten years of light writing about this and that, tours, recollections, legends and biographies, came tha -crowning honor of his life" in the mission to Spain, to lie signalized by hit crowning wort, the "Life of Washington." With the last volume of this he mav be said to have ended his days at the 8nnnys.de retreat on the banks of tbe'ri.er he loved ami whose borders he had peopled with legendary beup recalkJ from tba uwhit ,-nd dreamy years of the old Dutch djuaAlf .
