A Precious Stone in High Favor.
A precious stone which at the present -
ent time is very valuable , because it is ,
the stone of the houris the peridot , or
"evening etncrald. " It is a lovely
stone , with its exquisite shades of
tranrparcnt green , the best suggestion
of whose hue is the effect produced by
tS looking at the light through a delicate
leaf. , le vclers say that the peridot is
a sPccics of olivine , of the same class
as the beryl , aquamarine and the topaz ,
I and that it is in fact the ancient "topa-
zion , " otherwise known as chrysolite.
It is found in Egypt , Ceylon and Brazil ,
good crystals being exceedingly rare.
' Of the various shades of green olive ,
leaf , ppistachio , or leek , the clear leaf
green is the most admired
p Of all these precious stones the per-
, dct is the most difficult to polish. The
final touch is given on a copper wheel
moistened with sulphuric acid , a process -
cess which requires ; the greatest care ,
for , if dipped into the acid the stone
has the peculiarity of becoming sol-
uble. Sometimes it is cut in rose
form , or like a carbuncle , but it is better -
ter and more valuable when
worked in small steps , as the brilliance
is thus increased.
Owing to time quality of softness the
peridot has been considered of little
value , but now that it is the fashion

Ants Keep' Cows.
There are other ways in which ants
are like us , though their bodies arc so
different from ours.
They have stables under the ground
in which they keep-guess what-tiny
green plant lice , like those mama
will show you on her rosebush. The
right name for these little things is
"aphis. " The stable ants take care of
them and bring them bits of tender
green leaves to eat
The aphis is the ants' cow. It does
not give extctly the same kind of milk
that we drink , but the ants are very
fond of what it ( Ices give. We call it
honey dew. When an ant wants some
he touches the aphis in a certain place
and the aphis gives a tiny bit of honey.
'this seems to me a wonderful thing ,
and makes me feel as if the ants were
in some way related to us. Perhaps as
nearly as third cousins. Indeed , the
more we watch each little live thing ,
the more we find that each has something -
thing about it like us. Everything is a
nice part of the lovely , useful world in
which we live.

Three Eyes a Day.
Casset's Saturday Magazine : It is a
fallacy to suppose that people who
wear cork legs and glass eyes are indifferent -
different to their personal appearance.
They are often vainer than ordinary in-
dividuals. A rich man , for instance ,
who is obliged to wearan artificial .eye.
will wear three different eyes every
day-an eye for morning , when the
pupil is not very large : aneye for noon ,
when the pupil is smaller , and an eye
for evening , when the pupil has extended -
tended to its full size. A dealer fu
artificial eyes , who gave this information -
tion , said he made aboutan equal proportion -
portion of glass eyes for men .and
women. Some people keep quite a
stock in their possession ; in fact no
fewer than twelve eyes have been
made for one individual within three
years. his son had got one -made from
measurement , and that eye fitted so
perfectly that the old gentleman , in an
outburst of gratitude , wrote off for
eleven other eyes.

Mr. Brown had obediently taken
from the depths of a convenient pocket
a bundle of gloves , which combined a
rainbow of delicate tints , varying
from violet , lemon color , the blue of
a robin's egg , to velvety black , and
the owner bestowed her gift with careless -
less good humor.
Left alone , after murmuring some
confused words of thanks , Dolores contemplated -
templated her first pair of fresh gloves
with an ecstasy of feminine contentment -
ment impossible to describe. How
beautiful they were , of a texture like a
roseleaf ! How deliciously they were
scented with some unfamiliar perfume ,
which may have represented the first ,
subtle odor of a perfected refinement
of civilization to the awakening senses
of the girl ! She seated herself with the
poodle on her lap , stripped oft the old
gloves ungratefully , casting them down
at her feet , and assumed the new ones.
Then she rose , and glanced about
her , irresolutely. Unfamiliar with the
mansion , she sought Lieut. Curzon
on every side , with her glance. Ile had
promised to wait for her and conduct
her to the ballroom. Tiresome Florio
must first be given to grandpapa.
She went on to the next room of the
suite , bewildered by her interview
with the singer.
In the second apartment a lady
had paused to button her glove.
She glanced up , recognised Dolores ,
and came swiftly toward her.
She wielded no fairy wand wherewith
to further embellish the poor , little
maiden admitted to this paradise of

revelry. Instead , her blue eyes dwelt
with an expression of wounding disapproval -
approval on the flimsy , pink ribbon
encircling the golden-brown throat ,
and the coarse texture of the dress.
The glance was one to coldly discern
defects in other women rather than
Miss Ethel Symthe , in arobe of pure ,
white silk , subtly interwoven with
glittering silver , which shone like
diamond dust scattered over snow , inspired -
spired fear , a chilling dread in the soul
of Dolores , as she looked at her , Why ?
What had she done amiss ? The irrepressible -
pressible flash of jealousy and irritation -
tion in the blue eyes of Diana may
have been the annihilating ray
launched at a rival , the obstacle in the
path , since the day of Queen Eleanore
and the fair Rosamund. Miss Symthe
had not failed to remark the folly of
mankind , as evinced by Capt. Blake ,
and even the Ancient Mariner , Capt.
Fillingham , in lingering near the
I'henician of the tableau. The
anxiety and abstraction of Arthur
Curzon had inspired in her secret
uneasiness and suspicion. Where
had he found Dolores ? Why was he so
solicitous about her pose and acecs-
series in the scene ? Fate having delivered -
livered the innocent culprit into her
hands , this daughter of her ctntury
decided to dispose of her in summary
"Good-bye , " she said with a haughty
bow. "You are going away now , I
suppose. Mrs. Griffith is too busy to
see you again , I fancy , but it does not
signify , as I am here. "
The radiant face of Dolores clouded ,
and she recoiled a step. She was expected -
pected to go away instead of dancing.
The words , look , and manner of Miss
Symthe pierced her heart , as the blow
of a whip might have stung her cheek.
"I am not leaving yet , " she stam-
mered. ' 'There is to be a ball. "
Miss Symthe elevated her. eyebrows ,
and bit her lip. She knew that the
Grand Duke had expressed a wish to
dance the next quadrille with the
Phoenician. She was aware that
Arthur Curzon loitered in an adjacent
corridor to claim his partner. Rage
and bitterness filled the soul of the
young lady of many seasons.
"You are mistaken , " she said , in
such cutting accents that the listener
winced instinctively. "You do not
know about such matters , of course , "
with another disdainful glance at the
pink gown and ribbon. "You were
asked to share in the tableau. Mrs.
Griffith gives the ball to her frierds. "
"Then why as I invited at all ? "
cries poor Dolores , piteously.
"Men will always make a fool of
you , if you allow it , " said Diana.
"This is your way out. You will find
your grandpapa yonder. " She pointed
to a door , and waited to see Dolores
depart with a marked impatience that
brooked no appeal.
Surprised , dismayed , and nota little
aggrieved , the girl would have caught
at any straw of delay , had such detention -
tion offered. Iler pride flamed up
suddenly , and she departed swiftly ,
stifling tears.
Miss Symthe rebuttoned her other
glove , glided behind a screen of plants ,
thus adroitly avoiding Arthur Curzon ,
and entered the ballroom with a smile
on her rosy lips.
Dolores , with head lowered , and
clasping her dog , ran into Capt. Blake ,
who started forward at her approach
from the court.
"Where are you going ? " he demanded -
manded , extending his hand.
" 1 am to go away , " replied Dolores ,
in a faint voice , placing her little ,
trembling hand in his grasp , and looking -
ing up at him appealingly and sorrow-
"The little witch ! " thought the soldier -
dier , with a pleasurable quickening of
pulsation in the region of the heart ,
beneath his red jacket "I never saw
such eyes in my life. "
lie had placed himself in ambush to
1 await her approach , for he had reasoned -
soned that she must bring her dog to
her grandfather before dancing. lie
was moved by the complex motive of
admiration of her beauty , curiosity as
to who she was and a desire to thwart
the sailor.
"Going away without dancing with
mc : " ' he exclaimed aloud. "That will
never do. "
"The lady-I mean Diana-said I
was to go away now. Oh , 1 am so disappointed -
appointed ! " confessed Dolores , bending -
ing her head still lower to hide the
threatening tears.
"You ihust not mind Miss Symthe.
She is not the mistress of this house , "
said the gallant captain , in soothing
Dolores dried her eyes with a quizzical -
cal expression. In the game of cx
perience Miss Symthe had thrown the
shuttlecock of dire warning that men
would make a fool of Dolores , and here
was the first man met by the girl
afterward , tossing back the refutation ,
in unconscious vindication of his sex ,
possibly , by admonishing her to beware -
ware of Miss Sv mthe.
Lieu t. Curzon waited impatiently ,
dressing room where Dolores had betaken -
taken herself to change her stage costume -
tume , and again pacing the length of
colonnade. '
The onening quadrille of honor was
over. The new singer , Melita , invited
.for the occasion , had rendered successfully -
cessfully a brilliant , operatic aria ,
with innumerable bird-like trills and
quavers , substituting as an encore an
odd and sad little Russian song in a
minor key. Still Dolores did not come.
The young officer was vaguely aware
that girls require an unconscionable
time for their toilet. He was too large
of soul to notice the frock of
Dolores , if he thought of it
at all. He was determined to give
her the pleasure of dancing
at a real ball , and , well-of dancing
with her. Still she did not come. The
blood coursed more quickly in his
veins. lie paced about restlessly. Perhaps -
haps some accident had happened to
her. The admiration bestowed on her
beauty in the tableaux inspired in kiln
as much distrust as satisfaction. He
would seek the grandfather. Why had
he not done so before ? Iie paused
suddenly at the sight of Capt. Blake
approaching , with Dolores on his arm.
The captain thoroughly enjoyed the
situation. Miss Ethel Symthe , who
had slighted him on several occasions
in favor of Lieut. Curzon- wished to
banish Dolores. He would make the
latter dance all the evening , if possible -
ble , in consequence. Besides , he found
it very agreeable to pour flatteries into
the unsophisticated ear of his compan-
ion. He held a card , and was writing
down his own name for a number of
dances , Dolores observing him with
puzzled attention meanwhile.
She recognized Lieut. Curzon. withdrew -
drew her hand from the arm of
her escort , and ran toward him , with
a joyous exclamation. 'I am glad
to see you again , " she said ,
simply. "I was going away , only
Capt. Blake stopped me. He has been
so kind , " with a light gesture , caressing -
ing and grateful , toward her late com-
. "I "
panion. may stay ?
Dolores glanced from one to the
other in sudden misgiving of her reception -
ception in that great world of ballroom -
room beyond , where reigned Miss
Ethel Symthe in her robe sparkling
with silver.
Capt. Blake laughed.
"Oh , the women ! " Ile said.
He uttered a few sentences of explanation -
nation in the ear of Lieut. Curzon , and
laughed again. The other listened
with an expression of surprise and
anger , while a steely light shone in
his ayes , and the lines about his lips
tightened visibly.
"Here is your card , Miss Dealtry , "
added the son of Mars. gaily , concealing -
ing any vexation the intrusion of
Lieut Curzon on his tete-a-tete might
have occasioned him. Do not forget
. "
your engagements with me.
"Oh „ no , " replied Dolores. smiling ,
and attaching the card to her fan by
the silver cord.
The next moment her features
"I hate her ! " she whispered , fiercely.
"Oh , how she has made me suffer ! "
Evidently she had heard and comprehended -
prehended the words of Capt. Blake.
"What does it matter ? " said Arthur
Curzon. "Nobody shall cheat us of
our dance , Dolores. You do not hate
me , little bird ? " lie would have
deemed his tone sentimental , even
lachrymose , in another man.
She lifted her flower-like face , as if
inviting a caress , all softness and alluring -
luring sweetnessin smile and dimple.
"How could I ever hate you ? " she
He looked at her in silence. She
was there under his protection , but
surely some emotion deeper , more
subtle , blended of pain and bliss , than
the chivalrous sentiment of the gentleman -
tleman and the sailor , was awakening
in his nature.
Already the orchestra breathed
forth the first notes of Strauss' Swallow -
low Waltz , in which the listener feels
the poising of the bird on fluttering -
ing wing before launching into wide
circles of flight.
Lieut. Curzon led his partner to the
ballroom , and had already clasped his
arm around her slender waist , when
the message of the Grand Duke was
communicated to her. Was Dolores ,
surprised or pleased , tasting a
first triumph ? Her color went
and came quickly , still she did not
attempt to withdraw her hand from
that of Arthur Curzon , even to listen.
"Shall I accept ? " she inquired ,
"Yes. "
The couple glided away into the
midst of the dancers , leaving Mrs.
Griffith disturbed and displeased by
so much audacity and coquetry !
Was it a mere waltz , after all , the
brief span of time when society accorded -
corded these two the privilege of obeying -
ing the rhythm of the music , and the
rose in her hair brushing his lips , and
her light form obeying every impulse
of his guiding and encircling arm ?
Both forgot the Grand Duke , the ball ,
mere external circumstances. They
were alone in a world of life and
radiance , moving through space , almost -
most without personal volition , attuned -
tuned to the strains of delightful
In the sailor's instinctive
yielding to the spell of a waltz
measure it was apparent that
the sea had been his dancing master ,
and the wind his musician , imparting
buoyancy alike to pulse and limb. In
his zest of enjoyment lie more closely
resembled the Frenchman , or the Italian -
ian , than the average young Briton ,
who stalks gloomily through time mazes
of the modern dance.
As for Dolores , the blood of her race
asserted time right of agility and lightness -
ness , spurning the trammels of ordinary -
nary instruction in the terpsichorean
art. The pupils of the convent school
had danced together , during hours of
play , as they had laughed or sung.
Dolores had often been their leader ,
but such rudimentary practice of steps
could not explain the innate grace of
her movements in the Swallow Waltz.
Other forms mingled and separated
about her in giddy circles , and the
waves of soft draperies broke over
without submerging her in the folds
of silken gauze , shot with variegated
colors , the rich bloom of velvet , golden
and peach-tinted tissues. Once she
was confronted by the calm face of
Miss Symthe , making a turn of the
dances with the Grand Dukeand again
the singer Melita gave her a friendly ,
half-amused nod of the head in pass-
All too soon the music ceased to resound -
sound , and Dolores found herself on a
terrace softly liehted with tinted
lamps placed amid masses of palms
and ferns.
"I am to dance withm the Grand
Duke next , I suppose , " suggested this
southern daughter of Eve , glancing
up at her companion through her long
and silky eyelashes.
"IVill that give you pleasure-
" 1 don't know. Perhaps I am a little
afraid. I wish our waltz had lasted
longer : "
"I wish it had lasted forever ,
Dolores. "
Calm reason nolongerguided Arthur
Curzon , even a clear perception of the
reality of things was merging in the
intoxication of the hour. The Swallow -
low Waltz of the magician Strauss
still palpitated through his frame and
hummed in his ears. He tools hem

erased the name of Capt. Blake
with a lofty , masculine unconcern of
