ers of tho Metropolitan Optra 1'
has been put on exhibition in
York. Tho corouot contnliw 2s .. i
nionds, which range in bIzo froi:. i
cdrata to 1-8 of a carat. Tutiv ,r
about n dozen of tho larger Btonoa. m 3
the total weight of tho diamond I- ti.
tiara is about 30 caratB. Its co3t vnt
not be far from J5.000. The niylo (,;
coronet is that of Adams, in the :.i.e
of the first empire. Tho liara i? ' uiit
upon a baso band of gold, which -lu
rest upon tho wearer's head ni'd u.p
tho cllamond-set crown from air .u-ijr
into the hair. This band Is, how. - r,
only a round who of gold about 1-:: .r
ati inch in diameter. At its ends .m
loops into which hairpins or rib" -may
bo fastened to secure the or ..
to tho head. Above tho base and i
Ing on wire uprights Is the base pr,. r
of tho tiara. This consists of a do
line of diamonds, containing la . .
about seventy-live stoneu, Inojoslr .
row of iarger stones. Above thi.-
either sldo 13 scroll work of dinibom:
conventional grasses, nnd bet,vt
these conventional flowers, ail o ' ..
monds. The tiara stnnda very high i

ably effective specimen of jewel i
work. U is an open, graceful cluster
of sprigs and flowers, and .contains It

sprigs contain tho largest stones in th
tiara, each sprig holding a single stoat ,
and the centers of tho conventional
flowers are also formed of single stout-s
of large size. The center piece of th
crown can bo separated from tho rest
and used by itself as an ornament fcr
the hair. For this purpose it Is provid
ed with a gold comb, which sits at right
angles with tho front. This comb
serves to steady tho tiara when the en
tire Jewel la worn. Tho idea of making
a gift to Mmc. Nordica 13 said to havo
originated among some of hor admirsro
at the "Waldorf, but It did not tuk
definite form until Mr. James Otis tccH

A French physician who visited tho
Abyssinian king Monelok's camp, In
February, writes that Menelok has ex
pressed sorrow at tho great bloodshed
resulting from tho war. The Shoan
army was in excellent condition at that
timo and had been placed under strict
discipline, an unusual thing for such
troops. They- wero reported also to
havo acquired a certain dignity of char
acter and bearing, which had previous
ly been entirely wanting. Old Mene
lek expressed no doubt as to tho final
outcome of tho war. but Btated that
he hated the bloodshed, and had only
acted on tho defensive. Ho scarcely
had any idea or the great slaughter of
Italian troops which his soldiers would
1 so soon make.

An Englishman In Washington at
dinner declined to eat an ice Irozen in
the shape and colors, pf tho American
flag. This he did becauso he held it to
be bad form to absorb, the national em
blem. Tho Incident was significant
as showing tho distinction and differ
ence between tho British Idea of patri
otism and our own. Englishmen lift
their hats when their flag is carrlod
past, and rise when the national an
them is played in theaters and music
halls. No true Briton, in trado or out
of It, would uso tho flag nf his country
for advertising purposos. Boston Sat
