The time that a diamond takes to cut depends very much on its size A large one weighing ten carats usually takes from three to four hours while the smaller ones take much less time The third process that of diamond polishing is an important and lengthy one The skilled workmen sit at long narrow tables with their backs to the windows having in front of them the small iron wheels which revolve with such terrible rapidity when set in motion by the great engine I-'acing the windows stand apprentices and less skilled workmen whose work it is to receive the diamonds from the cutting rooms and solder them (by aid of the gas jet) into the top of small pear shaped tools of various sizes these tools being composed of lead and tin The diamond tipped tools then pass into the hands of the skilled workmen who before fastening them firmly into frames which stand in close proximity to the wheels dip each diamond into a mixture of oil nnd diamond dust This is a most important part of the process for by means of these grains of dust the polishing is done Four of these tools containing diamonds are then placed In position near the wheel (four can be polished at once) and with a quick movement of the hand the iron disks are set in motion The wheels revolve 1500 times a minute and the diamond is polished on one particular aide by means of the constant friction on it of the grains of diamond dust As the object of diamond catting is simply to make the stone a mand one so the object of diamond polishing is to give the diamond thejnany "sides" to use a technical expression considered necessa ry by the jeweler before it is ready for setting Great skill ia needed in this work for each stone has to be resold ered a great many times on to the top of the pear shaped tools and plnced again and again in connection with the revolving wheels in order to produce these "sides" — B W How in Golden Penny f The Cure that Cures t CougSsa T t Colds 7 I Grippe i WHOOPING COUGH ASTHMA BRONCHITIS AND INCIPIENT CONSUMPTION IS OTTOS CURE c £ofd by all druggists 25S50ctsT THE MARRYING AGE Whea IkeaM a Man Start Oat to Kind a Wifer At what age should a man marry? That depends upon the man Some men are more fitted for the responsibilities of matrimony at 25 than others are at 35 If marriage however be postponed nntil after this last figure a man is likelyto get into what may be called the habit of celibacy from which as from other bad habits it is hard to break away In this habit of celibacy he will continue nntil he ia about 00 years of age when a great desire will come over him to try what matrimony la like just before he dies and he will propose right and left to everything in petticoats until at last be 1 picked up not for himself but for hi money or his position or because some one is tired of being called "miss" and wants the novel sensation of writing "Mrs" before her name An old man told a friend that he wanted to marry before he died if only to have some one to close his eyea "Perhaps" suggested the friend "you will get some one who will opeu them" It is not natural for a young girl to wish to marry an old man A father said to hia daughter: "Now when it is time for you to marry I won't allow you to throw yourself away on one of the frivolous young fellows I see around I shall select for you a staid sensible middle aged man — what do you say to one about 50 years of age?" "Well father" replied the girl "if it's just the same to you I should prefer two of 25" Perhaps the best advice one could give a young man in this matter is to say "Wait until you cannot wait nny longer" Wnit — that is to say until she — that not impossible she — comes with smiles so sweet and manners so grncious that you cannot wait any longer then marry and you may be happy ever after As to the age nt which women should marry I am afraid of burning my Augers with that question All I shall say is thut if some women are not worth looking at after 30 years of age there are quite as many not worth speaking to before it Let a man please himself but let him not marry either a child or an old woman — Chicago Times-Herald APPRAISING OLD BOOKS A Tollaom? Task That Book Osvaers Have to Pay- Kor "Can you tell me whether this is a valuable book?" or "How much is this book worth?" are questions often asked at tho chief secondhand bookstores by patrons who think they have picked up some rare old edition or who think they can perhaps dispose to advantage of some volume which they own and believe to be prized by collectors If the book is obviously worthless their inquiries can be ao-swered shortly and positively but in a great dumber of cases the information they seek is such that no book dealer however well informed can give it correctly offhand And just because investigation is necessary to determine it such information is worth money The owner of the book will not in most Instances obtain the market quotation on his property or even perhaps find out whether there Is any considerable value in it without paying for the knowledge Not all dealers will or can appraise books in this way for patrons for the work requires that they shall have large facilities in the line of catalogues to consult and shall be able to spare the time of one man for hours days or perhaps weeks to search carefully through all the lists All catalogues of auctions of rare books which have been held in recent years in various parts of the world are valuable in assisting' in such work aud the last one examined might be the only source of the desired statistics The prices charged for the work vary greatly as might be expected according to the amount of time which has to be spent One dealer who does a trood deal of this appraising seldom undertakes to J look up a book for less than $2 and hia charges may ran from this up to $20 in ' rare cases when the edition ia a particu- ' larly hard one to trace The charges are uot necessarily baaed however upon the value of the book for frequently one worth comparatively little requires just as much labor in the search oa One which proves to be a rare price The patron takes the risk of this and when it hap-pens he ia obliged to pay for the work f and stand the loss — New York Tribune TRIALS OF A CLUB REPORTER Uli Enthnitaam Led to Hia Getting a Luig Vara 1 1 on Harry D Jones a well known New York editor tells a story illustrating tho trials of one cub reporter: "It was in Cleveland some years ago when I was engaged in daily newspaper work in that city A young man had just joined the reportorial staff of a rival paper lie came from an out of the way town and had never before lived in a large city He was elated over his position and assumed so much dignity and even haughtiness that the other reporters determined to teach him a lesson He had been sent to the lake front to get an exclusive story concerning the shipbuilding industry and he announced that fact to several other reporters one of whom looked at Ltitn in mock astonishment and remarked solemnly: " 'By Jove old man that's work they give to the oldest reporters on the staff! You see these millionaire shipbuilders won't talk to the ordinary reporter If you have influence you can get a great beat from Keelson's yard Everybody has been trying to get in there for two weeks' "The new reporter said that he had all the influence he needed and went posthaste to the yard Here he was received by the second conspirator who bad taken on the guise of a member of the firm and filled up with a technical story in which keels and main trucks rudder posts and cutwaters rolling chocks and deadeyes were hopelessly and absurdly mingled He closed the interview by presenting the reporter with a photograph of what he called the newest idea in naval architecture but which waa in fact a snapshot picture of a factory taken at an unusual angle with the factory chimney seeming to spring from the deck of a small boat lying in front of the building "The next day this remarkable picture appeared in print Early in the afternoon the reporter waa called up on the telephone by the third conspirator who said angrily: " 'I am the agent of the shipbuilding company whoae boat you libeled today and you have described it so incorrectly that I shall sue yon for damages unless you print a retraction nnd make the proper corrections The chimney as you bars printed It looks as If it were on my boat It does not belong to my boat at all bat is part of a factory near by' "And this statement appeared in the paper the next morning just as it had been sent over the telephone That same afternoon the new reporter started on one of the longest vacations on record in Ohio Journalism kit is not ended yet— Saturday Evening Post All Aksat the Mat "What kind of a car is this?" asked the old lady as she boarded an avenue car " 'Lectric!" shouted the conductor at her "Is this the kind you wanted?"

Neither she nor you will live to see Christmas day while I shall" This ship never turned up according to the lore of the beach combers and from that day to this a stowaway is always lucky aboard ship That the officers of the majority of ships do not share with the tars in this common belief may be judged from the tough experience of some of these impecunious tourists The American immigration authorities view a stowaway in much the same light that a pauper immigrant is considered It is mandatory on the master of a ship bringing a stowaway to the United States that be as the first agent of the owners be personally responsible underthe penalty of a heavy fine for the stowaway's deportation This law is not calculated to put the master mariner in a happy frame of mind and he treats the unbidden passenger as he thinks he should be treated There is no doubt that some have received very severe handling from irate skippers and it is even hinted that stowaways caught ou board have been brutally beaten put in irons and flung overboard at night in mldocean Countless numbers of stowaways have died in their attempts to cross the ocean The average steamer has many dark holes in her big interior and notwithstanding the fact that a ship seldom leaves port without a search being made to see that no unauthorized person Is on board many succeed in eluding detection It is only a few years since one of the regular liners arrived here with tho dead body of a stowaway in her hold He had rapped and hammered on the ship's hatch without avail when the ship was outside sight of land and had starved to death In another Instance a man hid himself in a chain locker and when the anchor was hove up he was crushed to death the noise of the steam winch and the rattling of the chain drowning bis cries The British steamer Maroa arrived in Penarth Roads some years ago with the body of an unknown man which was found in the bunker hold It ia supposed the man surreptitiously got on board at Havre A man was found dead under the main hatch of one of the National line steamers on her arrival here It was shown that be died of starvation and suffocation In one of his pockets was found a novel entitled "Doomed on the Deep" Still another case is that of a man who hid himself in the forepeak of a steamer bound to London While she was proceeding up the Thames rfver she was run into by another steamer and was cut out to her collision bulkhead The stowaway was crushed to death Many women have stolen passage across the ocean When the Dominion liner Mariposa was totally wrecked in the strait of Belle Isle in September 1805 the Allan line steamer Austrian came along to rescue the passengers and crew In making a roster and searching the ship two women stowaways were found The Pacific steamer Monowai on a trip to Sydney from San Francisco ran iuto a storm the first day out As her master Captain Carey was descending from the bridge to go to breakfast an 11 -year-old girl as pale as u ghost and dreadfully seasick approached him "I know I have no right here" she said to the skipper "but I want to go to my mother who is in Australia and I am willing to work for my fare" The girl gave her name as Rebecca Levy and told the captain a straightforward story She said that her father had failed in business in San Francisco and had sent bis wife and two smaller thildren back to their home in Melbourne He died after that and she had slipped aboard the ship to get home to her widowed mother The law compelled the captain to enter the fact in the logbook and when the other passengers heard of this they raised a purse for her fare This they gave to the captain He sent for the little girl when the ship reached Sydney and banded her the money that the passengers had subscribed saying as be did so: "If the British board of trade or say-body else wants to find fault because you came as a stowaway aboard this ship let them find fault with me I've got a little girl of my own and she doesn't cry when she gets money either Goodby and God bless yoof" When the passengers cheered him as they ware going ashore Captain Carey turned to them and said: "You mustn't think I would not flog a fall grown stowaway I would That isn't troubling me though I'm thinking of section 313 of the merchant ahipping act I'm afraid they'll make me toe that seam" But they never did In nine cases out of every ten The stowaway has outside aid in secreting himself on board a ship But he is loyal to his host and there are few instances where he has betrayed him That's the only feather in his cap — New York Mail and Express A Cocoon Uaard "While down east" said a ManayunU' millhand "I had a strange job of 'cocoon guard' in a silk mill The cocoon were bought in China and Japan by the pound They are yon know the finished work of the silkworm — small oval balls of silk each with its worm coiled Inside I guarded the cocoons In a big room where they lay hi bins and I gave them to the girls who prepared them for the cards As they were valuable and as they were also curios I weighed the daily portion each girl got and counted the cocoons In that portion besides Thus Maggie would be charged by me in a day with nine pounds equaling 870 cocoons and by a simple formula in division and subtraction I could tell how many pouuds of yarn Maggie ought to get from her portion and if she came oat short the 'cocoon guard' would inquire wherefore" — Philadelphia Record THE LITTLE GIRL WE DiDM'T WANT A Uttle girl wa didn't want Came unto oa on dayi We'd prayed the Lord that he might asad A little

statements each perfectly true in detail made a whopping big lie in the aggregate It happened like this: I went into a jewelry store and asked to see a cheap watch The clerk showed me a tinclad affair at $10 It came in a small pasteboard box on the lid Of which I noticed the statement that it was tbe equal of any $5 watch in the world 'Have you a watch at f&T 1 asked 'Yes sir' said tbe clerk and he handed me a very neat timepiece cased In oxidleed steel 'You will find that just as good as anything you can get for fire times the amount' he remarked opening the back and showing me the works " 'It looks all right' I said 'but on second thought I believe I'd like something better' 'Well here are some filled case watches' he replied 'thnt we sell with a 30 year guarantee Tbe case can't be distinguished from solid gold and the movement is fully standardized and tested for heat and cold It is a watch we consider very cheap at $25' I pried open the hack case and out dropped a little disk of paper on which the 30 year guarantee was printed "This watch is as well made in every particular' it said in preamble 'as the average $100 chronometer' 'What kind of a chronometer can a man get for $100? I asked The best in the world' replied tbe clerk enthusiastically 'Here is one now You observe its thinness and general elegance As far as the movement is concerned it la simply impossible to produce anything better " 'All tight' I said 'I'll Invest on that assurance' and I picked up the tinclad machine and laid down $150 I have your word' I added "that this is the best watch on earth' 'No yon haven't!' he exclaimed T didn't say anything of the kind!' 'Don't you claim that it is aa good as any $5 watch going?' 1 asked pointing to the statement on tbe box lid 'Yes but' — 'And you Just assured me' I continued 'that the $5 watch was the equal of anything at five times the price That gets us to $23 and the filled case guarantee states specifically that the $25 watch is as well made as a $100 chronometer Here you have it in algebra' and I pulled out a pencil and made this simple calculation: 'A B B C C D D m X therefore A X Seer "But he couldn't see It He stuck out firmly that each of the four assertions was gospel truth but he wouldn't stand for their logical conclusion I told him he ought to be arrested for asking $100 for a watch which I could prove by his own admissions was no better than one valued at $150 That tangled his brains la a hard knot and I escaped while he was still dated"— New Orleans Thnes-Democrat The Klaa-'a Cock Crewer In the good old time there was an English court official known as the king's cock crower It seems a strange office Why did the king require a cock crower? And why could not tbe common barn door variety serve his majesty's purpose? Tbe reason as you shall see was that the barn door variety cannot be depended upon for times nnd hours and he has never been persuaded to observe Lent Now this was a pious custom and a religions duty All through Lent the king's cock crower crowed instead of calling the hours of tbe night in the palace He began on Ash Wednesday when he entered the hall in which the king's supper was served and then crowed the hour in the presence of the royal party The meaning of the custom is obvious It was only one of the many ways in which the history of the Christian religion was brought borne to the minds of people before the reading of the gospel in the vernacular The office was continued down to the year 1822 — London Queen Swallowed the Ointment A curious case is reported by Dr Mos-bacher of Bochum in the Mnnchener Medicinische Wochenschrift He was consulted by a workman for erysipelas of the face and prescribed an ointment of 10 per cent icbthyol The next morning the wife of the patient (a Pole) came to Dr Moabacher complaining that the medicine had produced such severe diarrhea and colic that her husband waa unable to persevere with IL Dr Moabacher greatly astonished went to the house and found that instead of using the ointment in the ordinary way tbe man bad taken it by the mouth The erysipelas had nearly disappeared and the patient in broken German expressed his gratitude for the somewhat strong but very efficacious medicine which had done him so mncb good - Dr Moabacher adds that notwithstanding this success he has refrained from administering icbthyol internally Philadelphia Children "I don't believe there is a city in the country and I get around a great deal Where there are so many children on the streets after dark presumably making a living as la Philadelphia" remarked a traveling salesman "And the majority of them are little girls who while pretending to sell papers matches or withered flowers are really little more than infantile beggars I suppose you are so used to seeing tbem that yon scarcely give the matter a thought but a stranger In town such as myself cannot help being struck by a condition of affairs which seems radically wrong They don't inspire any pity for they are such insistent little beggars- They will follow you for half a block with their whining appeals and when you lose patience they open up on you with a flood of Impudence and even profanity This is not very pleasant especially if you happen to be accompanied by a lady Of coarse I'm only a rank outsider but it seems to me that something should be done" — Philadelphia ltecord Owing to the old system of digging out diamonds Kimberley proper Is bailt around a bole big enough to contain the entire white population of South Africa The surest guard against burglars Is a black and tan terrier inside the house and a ball terrier outside — Memphis Scimitar Misery may love company but It does not entertain its company very well — Kansas City Star m t The Perfect Shoe For A lady once railed "aha" ging" costs bk shoes wore as claim thesa to $500 REWARD We pay the above reward for any case of Liver Complaint Dyspepsia Sick Headache Indigestion Constipation or Cost!
