FORTUNE FOUND IN SIONE
Chicago Jeweler Says W. Ahern Has
Dug Up a $40,000 Diamond.
PICKED IT OUT OF A GRAVEL PIT
Came rr Throw Inn naael at a
4c In Denver, Where He
Konnd It nnit Formerly
Carrying a diamond valued at $40,fJ
loosi ly in his overcoat iiockct togetlicr with
his pipe, tolu'.co, glovee and a few other
things which are at to find their way
Into an outside pocket, W. Ahern, formerly
of Sioux City, luter of lH-nver, but now
living In Omaha, has found that be is a
rich mn and that the pebble which he
had "oome within an uce" of throwing at
a dog. Is worth a small fortune.
And the bent part of the story is that
Mr. Ahern stumbled onto the diamond,
which Is In the rough, In a gravel pit
and that his little daughter. Nellie, was
tho first to cause tho suspicion that the
stone hud value.
Mr. Ahern, who Is now living with his
wife, three daughters and one son, at 1416
William street, found the diamond In a
gravel pit near Denver six weeks ago. Ho
did not know at that time that It was a
diamond, never even thought that It was
worth the picking up, but because the
stone, having the aparanee of melted
glass, looked different from the other
around It. he picked It up and thrust It
In his pocket. He carried It there for some
days and one day, shortly before leaving
Denver, started to throw It at a cur which
snapped at his heels. Luckily for Mr.
Ahern as well as for the dog the obstrep
erous nnlmnl slunk behind a building, and
the diamond was again entrusted to tho
Sparks Come from It.
When he went home that night he took
the diamond out of hlB pocket and placed
It among tho children's marbles. It was
not as round as a marble and the little
girl, Nellie, thought to break off the rough
edges and make It more cylindrical. There
was a flaw In the stone and a few taps
with a tackhammer broke off a silver.
Tho child was startled at the brilliancy of
the freshly broken stone nnd when her
father returned his attention win called
The children plnyd no more with the
stone after that and In a few days the
family moved to Oraahn. When they ar
rived here, Mr. Ahern took tho stone to
Trills A. Borshclm, diamond merchant, 50
south Sixteenth street, and asked for an
opinion as to what It was and what. If
anything, It was worth. Though the stone
wns In the rough, the Jeweler knew the
minute he saw It that It was a diamond.
He has not the Instruments for cutting
and testing the value of a stone as large,
however, and therefore It was sent to Chi
cago for examination. And from Chicago
comes the Information that the stone which
W. Ahern found In a gravel pit Is worth
all of $40,000 If not more, and Mr. Borshelm
says It may be more.
Shows It to the Mayor,
The valuable stone made one final trip
In Mr. Ahcrn's overcoat pocket Saturday,
but the owner kept bis hand firmly grip
ped around It in his pocket. This final
trip was to the office of Mayor Dahlruan,
a former acquaintance, to whom the stone
was shown. The mayor was allowed to
hold the treasure a few minutes and a
couplo of newspaper reporters, who hap
pened In the office at tho time were also
allowed to give it a few fond caresses.
Then Mr. Ahern took it back again and
left the city hall, saying he was going to
hunt up a safety deposit vault.
The large stone will be sold to some
monarch of Europe for a crown Jewel, Mr.
Ahern says, but the chip which his
little daughter split off will be cut and
set Into three rings, one for Mr. Ahern,
one for the little girl and one for the
mayor of Omaha.
Could he find the dog which snapped at
his heels In Denver a week ago and then
accommodatingly scurried behind a build
ing, It Is likely that Mr. Ahern wou,ld pre
sent it with a fancy collar studded with
