PASTE OR DIAMONDS. A "¥feofclaoo That Enabled Mrs. ''Sykes'to Meet ttle'Kaiser. The Duke and Duchess of Beaumondo were about to receive the German Emperor at their vtUa at Cowes, and Mrs. SykCB had set her heart upon going 1 . Uot only was this to he the most superb "event of the Cowes season, but a period ihad now arrived in the career of Mrs. JSykes at which she felt that in onQ form •or another it was imperative that she should meet royalty. For two years— «ver since, in fact, Mr. Sykes had con- "verte<3 himself, as he used to express it, •*rchn a tradesmtw into a grentleman by celling Sykcs' Soap Substitute to a limited company—Mrs. Sykes had been ^steadfastly maneuvering- herself ' into •society. By reason of her husband's ^enormous wealth and her own not over scrnpnlocs astuteness she had succeeded •up to a point Uut though the . circles 5n which royalty moves are not inaccessible to certain portions of the common Sherd, the line, which even in these days has "to be drawn somewhere, had hitherto been drawn" at Mrs. Sykes. She had sustained a severe disappointment in connection with the Marlborough house garden party, but defeat only acts as a •stimulant on some natures, and as Mr. Sykes, whose one hobby was yachting, •was -going to Cowes for the Royal Yacht Squadon meeting 1 , Mrs. Sykes was seized with the-inspiration that her iailnre in London might be retrieved iy forcing- herself into the Duchess of ^Beanmonde's entertainment to the En- ,g-hsb and German royalties in the Isle <of Wight. When she came to consider how this "was to be accomplished there was one 'lady to whom Mrs. SyUes' thoughts at Trace turned. This was a certain Lady Pail Mall, whose husband was afflicted Tvith a chronic impecuniosity which aaade "it extremely difScult for both to Iteepcp the state and dignity be6tting "Iheir 'station. Her ladyship, being «, .joung, pretty and clever woman, was -often compelled to practice various stratagems and devices in order to keep "her own and her husband's- head above the waters of debt, which constantly threatened to overwhelm 'them. Not tie least remunerative of the many ^vocations pursued by her ladyship whereby she contrived to make her rank and position profitable'in a pecuniary sense was that of social sponsor •and general guide, philosopher and friend to people who, like the Sykes, •were at once wealthy, ambitious, vul- ;gar and generally unpresentable. While J-ord1*aD'Mall borrowed money freely •from.the husbands of those ladies for -whojn Lady Pall Mall procured invitations, presented af court, patronized "and introduced into her set, her ladyship accepted from- the ladies themselves numerous handsome and costly gifts. " AH this Mrs. Sykes knew and appreciated, and upon it she formed her •scheme. It was a- scheme, however, in "which her husband's co-operation was spensabl'e, for, in spite of the fact that Mrs, Sykes enjoyed 'a liberal al- k lowance, her anxiety to shine in the I "world kept her in a perpetual state of " financial embarrassment At the pres- •ent moment, so far from having any * -3pare_eash in her pocket, she was very ^ -seriously in debt.' She was obliged, therefore, to confide in her husband before she could carry her scheme into ef- i feet." John Sykes had beard a good | deaf about the Duchess of Beanmonde's party and had every opportunity of ap- 5 predating the -depth of his wife's * anxiety, to get there, but he opened his eyes considerably when 'he was given to understand that with the view of „- procuring- a card Mrs. Sykes confem- "t plated making a J 'c6stly present of ^ jewelry to Lady, Pall Mall. J r "You don't mean to say that you want to offer a-bribe to a real Countess!" ex- z - •claimed Sykes, a vulgar man,:possessed * •ot a siroplc mind and a limited rocabu- " lary-.., • . • • J v "Bribe! \\liat a dreadful cxpres- «• -sion!" answered his wife. "I" propose 1^to make her ladyship a present, John, ? that is 'all. To one io hrr position it I would be an insult to ofTer r.oy thing "but diamonds. The only question is 1 -what form the prt-sont should t:;Uc. I r* thmlr a necklace." . d "It will cost a lot of money, Polly." " v "Not more than wo can afford," re* plied !his wife. "It might be fifteen S Jmndred—it might be two thousand; but \ yonwsv&r were a mean man, John." r N To :do him justice, John was not. 5' Daring-the last two years he had, in his P own phrase, "stuck at nothing" in the g \vaypfexpenditure for the purpose of f, enabling his wife to attain that position ^ in the world on-which she- had set her if heart,"though, as Mrs, Syk'es -very well f> knew,--his wrath would har'e been great | rf he had known that she had spent ^ several hundred pounds more than he ^» Tvas aware of. He only- needed to be " convinced that Lady Pall .Mall -was ^amenable to-the influence which 'his S^-vcife proposed to bring to bear-on her, &:and"that there was a reasonable pros- v" -peet of her ladyship being able to pro- *|*-cnre the desired ' qnid'-.pro QUO. When Jilrsi••Sykes,' by dint of long argument id expostulation, 'had convinced him ••on these points he was ready to go and tbuy the diamonds at once. 'But he insisted on buying them himself. Mi-s. ykes had not intended this, but'she -f otmd her husband 'firm on- this point id was too good a diplomatist to con- ^ "You had bettor call on her ladyship fe'Xius afternoon and sound her about tto •*~busjriess," he said, in conclusion. "Tvro ^'ihoTrsand pounds is a; bit of taoncy, and [C4 don'^-want to jump before I come to fethe fence. You can sec how she takes t 3t lef ore I get the stones, and mind you <3o it carefully." ** Mrs- Sykes did it—whether carefully ,,>or r ot is a matter of opinion. She suc- Pcecdcd, at any rate, in making I/ady -'''Pall MaD understand what she wanted T^and what she was prepared to pay for iSit. If Lady Pall Mall had been dis- led to resent the fashion in which toapsaction was a,pr>roached the piice was t >o tirl fit 1 h i t > !>e- duly reported the result of her mission to husband, and at luncheon time next day the good man placed, in his wife's hands a case containing a diamond necklace, which made that lady's eyes sparkle. In due course the coveted invitation arrived. In due course also Mr. and Mrs. Sykes, who had been in their yacht in the Solent for a week past, found themselves among the proud gathering at tne Duke of Beaumonde's. While this was happening Lord and Lady Pall Mail were still in town, detained there by his lordship's somewhat superfluous devotion to his duties as an hereditary legislator. On the night of the Duchess' fete they were engaged to dine with a brother pc-er, who was still waiting for the rising of Parliament; and while Mrs. Sykes was basking in the sunshine of the Genivui Kaiser and his English relatives. Lady Pall Mall was reaping her reward in the contemplation of her glittering necklace of brilliants. For a week her ladyship had kept the present from the knowledge of her lord and master, having, indeed, her own'reasons for so doing. To night, 'however, temptation was too strong for her, and after much doubt and hesitation she came down to dinner with Mrs. Sykes' diamonds round her neck. It was astonishing how quickly the glitter of the stones caught Lord Pall' Mall's often unobservant eyes. "Why, where on earth did you get that?" he asked. "It is a little present that I have had," answered his wife. "A present! Who the dickens' from?" "Don't be alarmed," said her ladyship. "My admirer wtS'no One more dangerous than Mrs. Sykes—Sykes' Soap Substitute, you know." "Oh, oh! And what have you been doing for her?" Lady Pall Mall responded in a whisper. "What fools these people must bel*' exclaimed the peer. "Why, the stones must be worth a couple of thousand." "Oh,.no—not half of it." replied Lady Pall Mall, turning away rather hastily from her lord's scrutiny and changing the subject. Uis lordship returned to it, however, when they came back from the reception that evening. "The fact is. Alice," he explained, "that things have been going confoundedly crooked in the city-the last day or two,, and at this moment I am at my wit's end for—" "Why will you speculate?" interrupted his wife, impatiently. "Things always go crookedly when you have any thing to do with them." "Itis only a-temporary difficulty, I assure yofc. I can't explain the position—you wouldn't understand it if I did; but I must have'£1,000 within the next few days; and, if you would lend it to me,- that necklace of yours would just save us from ruin." - "How can you ask such a thing!" cried Lady Pall Mall, the tears starting to her eyes. "It is the only decent ornament 1 have. Will you leave me nothing?" "Oh, of course, if you refuse, there's an end of it," replied her husband. coldly. "Keep your-necklace, by all means, and much pleasure may it. give you." Lady Pall Mall, with all her cleverness: and knowledge of the world had one very soft place in her heart, as his lordship well knew. She stood for a moment looking at her husband's careworn and not over intellectual features; then with an impulsive movement she Unclasped the necklace and held it out to'him. "Take it and get the most you can for it," she said. but. with rather a husky voice. "I hope it may prove as valuable as you think." With many protestations-of.-grati- •tude, and a solemn -assurance, that the.stones should be- returned in a week's time at the very farthest, Lord Pall Mall took Mrs.' Sykes' offering and ; locked if up in his desk. •• ; Next •oiQrniag be 'was absent from home for an ' hour or two. On bis return he dashed up-at once to his wife's rooru ;incl confronted, her with a face expressive of the deepest indignation and disgust. "Alice!" he exclaimed, ''are you responsible for this trickery?" "Trickery? - I don't understand you!" replied his wife. "Did 'you not know when you gave me these confounded diamonds that they were paste?" . •If he had for a moment-thought that she did, the incredulity and amazement which his'wife betrayed at the question would have convinced him to the contrary. That the stones were paste was proved beyond all-'question. The young man at Mr. Melehisedek's, to whom Lord Pall Mall had tendered them as security for an : advance of one thousand pounds, had detected their true character in'-:half a: moment. The question now was, with whom had the imposture originated? As's*onas ; Lady Pall Mall's first .outburst of---'anger -and disappointment had' subsided, she 'and her -husband debated this question between them very eagerly.' . -"1 think," said;-Lord Pall .Mall .presently, "that 1 see a way of soly.ing the mystery, and, .what is more, of- getting you your diamonds, with something handsome beside-" ?'You do!" exclaimed her ladyship. : "I think that i do.; • The -.Sykescs-are back in town on their way North. I met him in the city;yesterday. ' A'skthem to dinner to-morrow, and tl&n do as I tell you."- •"-.• The same evening Mrs. Sykes was enchanted by the receipt of an invitation to dine with Lady -Pall Mall on the following night—not,a formal invitation, but a°friendly note which .might have come, as Mrs. Sykcs observed to her husband, from an old schoolfellow. This was a return, indeed, for the £3,000! Of course the Sykes went, and of course Lady Pall Mall put on her diamond necklace for the occasion—a compliment which the worthy proprietor of Sykes' Soap Substitute fully appreciated, and which, coupled -with the remarkable affability of-.his-, host -and hostess? holpcd- to quickly put him 'at his ease. Indeed, before the -dinner ' wiis ovvr Mr Bykcj-grew quite confi- •l^nt.iryl rind pnte.rtained. his noble friends with many edifying anecdotes of his early life and adventures in the soap trade. In the course of such conversation the talk somehow turned upon Mrs. Sykes'love of Snery, "Ah, you can afford to indulge these tastes," said Lord Pall Mall, with a glance at his wife. "For my part I am always telling Lady Pall Mall that it is folly tu spend a fortune on real jewelry, when stones can be imitated well enough to deceive the best judge." "Couldn't deceive me," remarked Mr Sykes, with a knowing air. "Give me a handful of mock stones and one real gem among them, and I'd wager one thousand pound sterling I'd pick the genuine stone out at the first guess." "Really, are you- so good a judge as that?" queried her ladyship, innocently "Come now, Sykes, you're joking; I think only a • professional expert can detect really first-rate paste. But we'll put you to the test. Look at that necklace my wife is wearing; it doesn't compare unfavorably even with Mrs. Silver- hook's emeralds, and yet she tells roe she. only gave fifteen pounds sterling for it." Mr. Sykes stared, then burst out laughing. "So that's the story you've told his lordship," he thought, as he looked sideways at his- hostess' -blushing face. "Well, mum's the word, but I ain't going to be made a fool of, even by a noble lord." And turning to Lord Pall Mall, he. continued: "I should be glad to give her ladyship five hundred pound sterling for it.: Those stones are real— every one of them." : "I'm sorry to contradict you," retorted Lord;-Pall Mall coolly, "but ! really now you are mistaken. My wife's necklace is only paste. You see, I was not far wrong when I asserted that paste sometimes deceives even a good judge." . I ; . "I ;quite agree with, his lordship," interrupted-Mrs; Sykes, quietly. "You must be mistaken, John;" and : she gave her husband a look that said plainly, "It is bad manners to carry an argument too far."- . But Mr. Sykes was not to be stopped, "Well, my lord," he said, "I'm ready to- back my opinion,, anyhow. I'll bet yon'any thing you please that the necklace Lady Pall Mall is" wearing is made , of -twenty-five real stones of the first water—and I ought to know." "Oh, it's hardly worth betting about," said Lord Pall Mall, indifferently. "I'm very,glad the necklace is good enough to deceive -such an excellent judge as yon, but really I seldom bet." "Afraid—eh—in this case?'" sneered Mr. Sykes, who was losing his temper. At that moment Lady Pall Mall gave Mrs. Sykes the signal to retire, and the ladies left the room. ' "Ididn't want to discuss the question farther before the ladies," said Lord Pall- Mall, jas they settled into their seats again-j '"But I am as confident-as you are, and if you really want to back your opinion I'll takeyour bet to any reasonable figure." "Say-a couple-of thousand, if you like," replied Sykes, bumptiously,- "and let's decide it as soon as you please." "Done with yon. If you know any expert in the| neighborhood, I will send to him at once." "Send round to Londer & Eydon's. Mention my name and ask them to send Mr. Agate;") said Mr. Sykes, with a chuckle at .his own astuteness. It was Mr. Agate who had sold him the necklace. . "So be it," said his host. "Shall we go upstairs?" Within half an hour Mr.. Agate had arrived and by Lord Pall Mall's orders was ushered" into the drawing-room. "Excuse my sending' for you in this informal way, Mr. : Agate, but we wish you to decide a ; trifling wager. My dear," added Lord Pall Mall, turning to his wife, "just let Mr. Agate look at your necklace.". , Lady .Pall Mall at once unfastened the necklace. 11 r. Agate carried it to the light and closely inspected the diamonds through his' pocket lens. The four'onlookers waited expectantly. "Well, sir, what do you say?" demanded Mr. Sykes. "Stones of the first water—eh?" The expert laid the necklace down, and the stones flashed in the lamp-light as if to affirm their unimpeachability. "Every stone in the necklace is paste," he said, quietly. '•Then you are the biggest swindler in London," shouted Mr. Sykes, "for you sold me that necklace"not a 'fortnight ago for £2,000." "1 sold you one somewhat. similar to this, but"—the rest of the sentence was drowned 'in an hysterical shriek from Mrs. Sykes, and for some minutes all was confusion. * •» * # # * * "T was right, you see," remarked Lord Pall' Mall, when he and his wife were,'presently.".'left alone. "The lady was the' thief.

A good pasture is almost ; a necessity to'an-'economical growth of -the hogs during the .spring -and summer. In Borne cases it may pay to cut off grass, clover,' oats or' some other given feed and give it in feeding lots, but in a majority of cases the better plan is to provide a good pasture, well supplied'with grass or clover, -with good water and a comfortable shelter. These being supplied very little trrain will be needed to keep the h6gs growing bteadily all through the growing season. Clover, all things considered, makes *hp very best pasture for hogs. Blue grass is good, but they will make a better growth on clover than on any thing else. Eye and oats are also good. Where they will thrive" oats and field- pease make splendid green feed for growing .hogs. Almost, any kind of grass or green feed is better than attempting to feed $u dry feed alone. It is best to arrange for this in advance. In some cases, where sufficiently well, e; tablished, the orchard can be seeded down to clover and be converted into a good pasture with benefit both to the trees and to the hogs. If the seed is obtained in good season and sown early a considerable amount of feed can be- made reasonably early. When intended for a hog pasture plenty of seed should be used, and in many cases it will pay to sow one bushel of oats with the clover, letting all get a good- start before turning in the hogs., If a good profit,is realized it is very essential to maintain a steady growth during the summer. • With spring pigs a good growth can be maintained with the addition of very little grain if they are given the run of a good clover pasture. With pigs that have been wintered over in good condition it is much easier to fatten if they can be given a good pasture than if they must depend upon dry feed alone. Good clover rtduces the cost of fattening pigs that have been wintered over ready: for late spring or early:summer market or of maintaining a steady growth with early spring pigs. 'With all classes of stock grass is a cheaper feed during growth than : grain or in fact'any kind of dry feed; and good care should be taken to supply it for the hogs, as well as for other kinds of stock.—St. Louis Republic. —Terrapin is not the easiest tiling in the world to eat, and we wust all sympathize • with the out-of-town gentle•man at Delmonico's the other night who met', the delicacy f or " the first time.
