general secretary of the local association,
has spent a considerable part of her raca

pecially the newer onea, that the locaV
organization may profit by all of the Im
provements and modern equipment In use,
also by any mistakes .that have been proven
by experience. ' when final plans ar. drawn
; tor its building.
Sprung from a modest beginning, th. local
work has aasumsd such proportions that, a
building for Its exclusive us. has become
a necessity and as this necessity has be
come recognized to such an extent that the
business men and other interested citizens
of Omaha have expressed their willingness
to lend the necessary support to such an
enterprise, Mrs. Byers has, for the benettt
of thee, and all others Interested, written
the following letter that they may esti

cities and better understand Its needs at
Writing to Th. Be. from Milwaukee, Mrs.

sjrork of the Young Women's Christian as
sociation of Omaha suggests the presenta

association In all large cities hsa become

found associations In greater or less de

aot misunderstand the real work of our

Young Women's Christian association Is la

"Th. second floor Is used -entirely for
dining room and kitchen purposes. ,The
lunch room Is conducted on the cafeteria
plan, very much the 'same as our own
lunch room, but with twice as much floor
space. The prices are very much higher
than ours in Omaha, and very few of th.
young women take any lunch with them.
Their average attendance Is less than oura,
though the new building with Its special
provision for the cafeteria la Increasing
their attendance so rapidly that they will
probably hav. an attendance i of at least
500 In the near future.

necessary for the management and servlo.
of a well regulated household. There will
be special course, open to housekeepers,

"Th. disappointing feature of this very
fine building Is Its gymnasium. It Is small
and the celling too low and cannot b. con
sidered at all In keeping with th. work of
ao larga an association, and there la no
provision for a natatorlum, which la quite
necessary in a - thoroughly equipped gym
naslum. Another weakness Is th. Jack of
an auditorium. There Is so suitable room
for th. various larg. - gatherings of the
association, and, indeed, no room suitable
tor the' gospel meetings. . .
"At this time, whea our association in
Omaha is contemplating, th. erection of a
building foe lta work, theae particulars of
th. Milwaukee building will probably be
of Interest. Philanthropic mea and women
and business, people of Omaha will cer
tainly see that suitable provision for the
seeds of the young women of our city Js not
only desirable, but necessary." ' ,

And here's what "Patsy does to keep
from going wild when such requests ar.
mads: Hs took th. watch and carefully
examined It, opened the back and looked
at the works, listened to It tick, asked th.
price, what It coat, how long the man had
it and about a thousand and one other ques

"Well. It 'you want to get $3 oa that
watch I guess you had better take It to a
pawnshop. What do you com. her. with

GEMS THAT FADE FROM SIGHT
Kara and Prioeleii Jewels of India Prjnoei
VALUES MOUNT INTO THE MILLIONS
Necklace of India's Joan of A
The Great MoaTal'e Diamonds
. Pliarre'i Wonderfnl Pe .
The r.ported mysterious loss of a ruby
weighing 2S6 carats from among the crown
Jowels In the royal treasury at Stockholm
recalls the disappearance of other famous
and even more precious stones, whose hid
ing place remain to this day undiscovered.
In this connection one naturally turns first
to India, that land associated In th mind
with fabulous wealth In Jewel. Where, for
Instance, are those two celebrated diamonds
over which a controversy has been, carried
on among experts for a hundred years.
These two stones were known originally as
the Great Mogul and Babar diamonds. Tha
Great Mogul weighed 279 carats whea cut
and was valued at 14,396,000 In our money.
TaVernler, whq was permitted to Inspect the
gem when visiting the court of the em
peror, 8hah Jahan, describes it as being of
the purest wster and undoubtedly the most
splendid Jewel In the world. The Babar
diamond also belonged to the Mogul em
perors and weighed 184 carats. As far as
any authentlo record Is concerned both these
diamonds were lost when Nadir Shah sacked
Delhi In 1739. Though Nadir' carried away
some $176,000,000 worth of jewels to Persia,
it is not known definitely whether be se
cured the Great Mogul ani Babar diamonds.
The only clue we have to them afterward
lies In the story of the Koh-l-nur. The Koh-1-nur
is known to have beea carried from
India Into Persia about the time the Great
Mogul and Babar diamonds disappeared, and
upon this fact some authorltlea claim that
the jewel at present In Queen Alexandra's
erown la one of the lost stones. But If the
Koh-l-nur was originally the Great Mogul
diamond, then there must be s nlee little
chip of a diamond weighing 83 parats lying
around somewhere, for that was the differ
ence la weight between the two gems. It Is
more likely that the Babar waa the original
of the Koh-i-nur, as they were of about th.
same luster and weight, though there Is no
sure- foundation even for this belief. It Is
quite as likely that the Koh-l-nur Is an en.
tlrely different atone, and that previous to
the surrender of Delhi both the Great Mogul
and Babar diamonds were hidden. Then
when the frightful butchery of th inhabi
tants followed th persons who knew where
the gem had been secreted wer killed, and
so all tree of them was lost. But on thing
I certain, the Great Mogul and Babar dia
monds eaa not both be the Koh-l-nur, so
where one of them Is remains an unan
A Pearl Withdat Price.
At ths same time that these diamonds
were lost to view there also disappeared
the famous Mogul pearl. This gem I sup
posed to have been the largest perfect
pearl la the world. .It waa suspended from
the beak of the Jeweled peacock hovering
over Shah 'Jahan's , 135,000,000 throne. It
may or may not have been carried away
to Persia by Nadir Shah, but nothing has
ever been beard of It since.
Another celebrated Indian diamond with
a romantic story attached and called iu.

in the possession of a msrehant, but what
became of It subsequently no one knows.

treasure, there Is good foundation In fact
for Kipling's story of th white cobra
guarding a scintillating mass of jewels.
When the English captured Delhi in the
mutiny . day the chief loot sought for
was the last Mogul's regalia. But, though
very likely plac was ransacked and many
natives who were presumed to know some
thing 'about it were put through a severe
"third degree," tha more valuable part lie
During those time a famous ruby and
an equally famous pearl necklace disap
peared under unusual circumstances. Th
ruby, which ' was then valued at $300,000
and which today would be worth twice as
much, belonged to the Nana Sahib of in
famous memory. The etone waa an heir
loom In his family, and concerning It a
Brahmin had prophesied that as long ae
the Nana retained it In his possession
ha would never suffer capture by his ene
mies. The prophecy came true, for though
every outlet was guarded and .the whole
country searched over, he was never se
cured to pay the penalty pf . his crimes.
Whsn deserted by, his companions he waa
flying to the Jungle at the foot of the
Himalayas, with the- ruby still wrapped In
a fold of his turban. It is, . therefore, not
Improbable that someday a coolie digging
a trench or a well may unearth a human
skeleton, beside whose bleached skull wlH
be found this priceless ruby;
Story of a Necklace.
Of the famous pearl aecklaoa which dis
appeared at the same period a long story
might be told. But, In brief. It originally
formed a part of the Imperial regalia of
Portugal, until It came Into the possession
of the family whose chief 1 the tnaharaja
of Gwallor, at present a star visitor In
England and who proposes touring the
United States. At the time of the hunt
ing the maharaja of Gwallor was friendly
to the British and this brought down upon
him the wrath of ths, redoubtable princes
of Jhanal, th great Indian Joan of Aro.
In a pitched battle shs routed th. maharaja
and then seized his city, fortress and
palace, containing a vast treasure. Amid
the latter was the famous aecklaoa, which
the beautiful but terrible prlnoes at once
appropriated to her own use. In the sub
sequent battle with the British It is said
she wore the necklace. Romance alao tells
that when mortally wounded she broke the
strings and gav to each of her officer a
pearl as a keepsake.. But whether this is
true or not, the maharaja never recovered
bis necklace, and the present holder of the
title 1 deprived of the satisfaction of
dazzling London society by wearing the
principal heirloom of hie family. The
necklace was said to be worth $400,000.
In comparatively recent years a mag
nificent pear-shaped emerald disappeared
when ths countess of Dudley's Jewels wer
spirited sway from the waiting room of a
London railway station. Upon such faith
as may be placed la the delirious state
ment of a maa who wandered Into aa Aus
tralian back country station, dying of thirst,
it is supposed the gem was carried out to
that country and llee hidden somewhere la
But America is sot without a lost gent of
fabulous size. Where is that emerald re
ferred to by Plzarro as the Goddess of
Emeralds T Plzarro asye It was a large as
an ostrich sgg and waa worshiped by the
Peruvians, to whom IV was sbown by th
high prleat on great festivals only. To dis
cover that emerald would eurely equal the
finding of Captain Kldd's treasure.
