I'hlnens was confused.
Mr. Dngget doesn't know yet what

to get out of his sight, and for the

IN CUTTING DIAMONDS
Peculiar Propertleo of the Preclofo
1 Gem Must Bo Tiiorouahly Under
otood by the Lapidary.
A diamond cutter, writing for the
London Mall, relates some Interesting
fncls as to forms Into which diamonds
ate- cut to enhance their luster. A
diamond Is tho hnrdest substnnco In
nature and cunnot oven bo scratched
except with another diamond, while
somo stones can bo cut only with their
Yet the hnrdest of all can bo cleft
by a heavy blow delivered In tho right
direction; that Is, parallel to the faces
of the eight sides which Its erystnl
shows. It Is this property that permits
the very largo stones, such as the "Oil
llnan" diamond, to bo worked.
In spite of this, n diamond linn the
Blmplcst composition of all precious
stones, for it Is only crystnllzcd car
bon, nnd a near relation to ordinary
grnphlte, usunlly cnlled "blncklead."
Hut It has been, formed by enormous
pressure In the remotest depths of tho
earth's crust, and probably forced to
ward tho surfaco by steam.
The prlnclpnl forma Into which n
diamond Is cut arc:
Urllliants, with an octagonal faco
surrounded by many smaller facets.
Icoso diamonds, with n lint base",
above which are two rows of triangu
lar facets, the uppermost terminating
In n point.
Table diamonds, which are thin
stones cut with triangular facets.
What makes the diamond so pre
cious is the presence of Inward "lire"
tho mysterious gleams of blue and red
that change with every movement, nnd
which makes such an appeal to our
sense of beauty.
The charm of precious stones lies
in their brllllnncy and luster, tho In
tensity of tho latter depending upon
tho polish of tho surface; for If tho
stone Is dull or uneven tlto light Is
scattered and not reflected.
Tho only stones at all approaching
It arc zircon and tho green garnet
called "olivine." Tho luster of all
other stones Is vitreous, such as seen
on the surfnre of broken glass. And
the third type Is that shown by resins.
In order to bring out the full beauty
of a stono It must bo cut In such n
way that the facets reveal Its splen
dor, and the art of the lapidary rests
upon his knowledge of what becomes
of tho light when It fnlls upon tho
stone; so he must understand the laws
of reflection and refraction.
When n while light Is refracted Into
u colorless stone It changes and Is spilt
up Into n spectrum. Since tho refrac
tive Index Increases progressively as
tho wavelength of tho light decreases,
a normnl spectrum Is violet nt one end
and passes through green and yellow
to red at the other end; for Instanco,

The story comes from Scottsburg
and It shows nil the shrewd persons

poaranco nnd apparently of mnderuto
means wnlked Into the bank nnd
asked to borrow 5. He was told the
bank did not loan such smnll sums,
but when he Insisted tlint the business
of a bank was to loan money, that he
needed the sum mentioned, and that
he had good collateral, the noto was
made' out, tho banker regarding it as
a good Joke. Then tho stranger
pulled out $10,000 worth of Liberty

It to tlie letter-box at the comer. And
nil the rest of that day sho moved
