Am«rican Minister Describes Incident
In Chinese Empress Dowager's Life.
There Is probably only one man In
the United States who has ever lived
In a palace of Tsze IIsl, the late re
doubtable Chinese empress dowager.
This is the Rev. Walter S. Elliott, who
recently returned from north China,
where he had charge of the American
Bible society's work in a region aa
large as nil of this country east of the
Mississippi. The palace which he
bought and lived in afterward was a
"travel palace," says the New York
Tribune. Wheu an Imperial personage
makes a tour in China envoys go ahead
and prepare a palace for him at each
stopping place. Sometimes tliese pal
aces are occupied only one night. Then
they are sealed up aud left to decay,
for no Chinaman may ever live in one
of them afterward. Usually they aro
built new for the occasion, but in this
case, being in haste, the imperial es
cort took possession of the home of a
rich man. It was already a very good
house, and it was renovated and re
furbished at an expense of several
thousand dollars.
After the empress had come and gone
the poor rich man was left with an
expensive house upon his hands in
which neither he nor any other China
man could ever live. So he was glad
to sell It to Mr. Elliott for a mission
school for ljDOO strings of cash. As a
string of cash Is worth 27 cents, the
missionaries got an Imperial palace for
the modest sum of $513.
It is interesting to know the sort of
bed upon which poor Tsze IIsl rested
her weary bones. It was a brick plat
form built new for the empress. Un
der It a small cavity was left, opening
through the house wall into the outer
air, and In this hole somebody out
doors kept a fire of cornstalks burning
all night to keep her imperial highness
warm. Even for an empress' habita
tion no stove or bathtub was put Into
Divided Into Eleven 8tones, One Five
Times the Kohinoor's Weight.
In the original state the Cullinan
diamond to be presented to King Ed
ward of England weighed 3,253% Eng-
jhh carats, or ovar ona and oaa-thlrfl
pounds avoirdupois. It is now divided
as follows: (1) A pendcloque, or drop
brilliant, weighing olGVi carats, dimen
sions inches long and 1.7U1
Inches broad (2) a square brilliant,
weighing 309 1-0 carats, 1.771 inches
long by 1.504 broad (3) a pendeloque,
weighing 02 carats (4) a square bril
liant, 02 carats (5) a heart shaped
brilliant, 18% carats (0) a marquise
brilliant, 114 carats (7) a marquise
brilliant, 8 0-1(5 carats (8) a square
briiliant, 0% carats (9) a pendeloque,
4 9-32 carats (10) 0(5 brilliants, weigh
ing 7% carats, and (11) a quantity of
unpolished "ends" weighing 0 carats.
The first and second of these stones
are by far the largest In existence.
Even the second Is much bigger than
the largest previously known brilliant
—viz, the Jubilee, weighing carats
—while beside either of them so fa
mous a Jewel as the Kohinoor sinks
into comparative insignificance since
its weight, 102% carats, is little more
than one-third of that of the smaller
or one-fifth that of the larger. More
over, the stones are not more distin
guished for size than for quality. All
of them, from the biggest to the small
est, are absolutely without flaw and
of the finest extra blue-white color ex
As regards the two largest, an in
novation was made in the manner of
cutting. Normally a brilliant has fifty
eight facets. In view, however, of the
Immense size of the two largest Cul
linan brilliants, it was determined to
have an increased number and to give
the first seventy-four facets and the
second sixty six. This decision has
been abundantly vindicated by the re
sults, for the stones exhibit the most
marvelous brilliancy that diamonds
can show. This fact is all the more
remarkable and satisfactory because
very large brilliants are apt to be
