you think I should purchase

tho prices may be somewhat
Yours very truly,
Omaha, May 8.
Replying to your inquiry re
garding the prices of Diamonds
wo would say that "thero is no
time like tho present." Had you
purchased such a stono ten
years ago you would have pro
fited considerably upon your
Investment, and there Is equal
certainty that the tendency Is
towards higher prices la the
future Instead of lower. In
fact there has been a steady,
unbroken climb in price for
the last twenty years, and be

Diamonds are different from
a manufactured or grown ar
ticle In this respect; as soon as
the demand tor any manufac
tured article becomes abnor
mally great, and prices rise,
other producers enter the field
and thus regulate the price.
In the case of Diamonds, as
perhaps you are aware, they
come almost exclusively from
Bouth Africa, where the mines
are controlled by the Do Beers
Syndicate. This la one of tho
closest and wealthiest corpora
tions In exstenco, and the out

Amsterdam Is regulated by

those who are in a posit: lu to
know that tho supply Is cer

you perhaps know, are found
In what might be called
"shoots" or "tubes" of clay,
extending down Into the bowels
of the earth, having been shot
therefrom in ages past by vol

mined at over 3,200 feet below
the surface, we are told, and
the cost of such work Is con
sequently much greater man

Since you are considering
the question of Diamonds, wo
think we could Interest you In
a visit to our Diamond Roam,
without placing you under the
