These cases are mado from ) to 10 karats, and a 5 or 0 karat case is often sold for VI or M karats.

SELECT STORY, MISS ELTON. 11V IUI.IX OltAV. Nfitlicr tnlt nor short, ncltlier dnrk nor fair, with hah' between blondo nnd brown, nnd oyca tlmt loft a doubt ns to wlictlior tlicy wero gray or hazel, fcho was just fiiioh rt little buntllo of uncer tainties ami contradictions as led tho mainnation captivo nt tho first glance, nnd offered a constant luro to anticipa tion. Whether sho Biioko or remained el- lent, whether sho walked or sat, expec tation hung breathless upon her next word, her next pose, iter eyes, vary ing as seemed the hue, shone, none the less, with a candid ray that seemed tho very light of truth, and her fresh rooutn, with its milky teeth showing between tho not too-smiling lips, irre sistibly suggested tho sweetest uses to which lips can bo put. 1 he heavily moving steamer had plowed through half tho great Atlantic rollers, and tho fow passengers had all grown heartily tired of each other, wIihii she suddenly appeared for the first time upon deck quite alone, yet aim and ecu centered as the small birds ihat poised themselves upon spar or bulwark to gather ureal h tor trcaii tliuht. It was Julius Hildcr who had first discovered her, leaning against the companion wav railing, with the air of aving lust come up or down, ho could hardly determine which, looking ab scntly at tho tumbling waves. Julius and his tnend Austin JJrakc were seceders from a cay parly who ail made tho tour ot boulliern Jinropo ogether. It was Julius who had 111 stigated his companion to desert tho others and tako tho German steamer for Now Orleans direct, which then touched at Havre, instead ot crossing by a Cunarder ; ami it had all grown out ot tho obstinate determination on the part of his sister to attach her party to that of Mrs. Smollett. Mrs. amollott was his choicest aver sion, a pretention", intriguing woman, 11 whom tho match-making instinct had been so developed by the effort to establish her own five daughters that it could not rest sattshed with the ac complishment of that gigantic task, She seemed to have an endless supply ot niecps, adopted daughters or pro teges of some sort, whom she dangled ostentatiously before tho eyes of all clligiblc bachelors. Sho had improved a chance meeting with .Julius to an nouncc to him a new acquisition, ; lovely young creature, whom sho was taking home with her trom a awiss Pension. ".Mr. Smollett's own niice, Mr. Hil der, and quite like ray Kanny at her age. You remember. Fanny f She was your hrst love, 1 believe, sho had said with her ogling dowager smile, and Julius had felt himself seized nt once with an unsurmountablo aversion to the fair young nieco of Mr. Smol lett. In the first heat of his indignation against his sister ho had conceived this notable scheme of crossing by tho Havre steamer, and though it had not iu its development proved to be emi nenlly amusing, ho had never omitted to congratulate himself nnd his com panion night and morning upon the good sense they had displayed 111 adopt ing it. ."io chattering girls or designing dowagers, ho would say, as ho yawn cd over his book or tlie dull game with which they strove to believo they wero amusing themselves, "gives n man time lo pull himself together and tako an account of stock, as it were." Still when on one of thoso aimless pilgrim ages below, which formed the only break in tho monotony ot this oceuiia lion, he had nearly run over this pretty young cieature leaning against tho railing, a thrill of undeniable pleasure had coursed along his nerves, ami h had felt himself blushing with pleasci surprise. I'ortunately, the sea-tan had render ed the blush indistinct, but over the light that shot into his gray eyes the sea-tan had no power, nor yet over the tonguo that stammered as ho tiled to convey Jus apologies for nearly upset ting nor, nnu his oners ot service in conducting her to a scat. "lhank you,' sho had auswerei cooly, "you did not startle me, as I saw you coming, and I am not stiro that want a seat." There was no more to bo said, nnd her maid appearing at the moment willi a bundle ol parti-colored wraps juutis could only lilt his hat again and carry out his purposo of going bo low. As ho had no reason for going except that ho had tired of staying on neck, and as tho deck hnd now no quired n paramount attraction, ho was soon back again. In tho meantime tho young lady hat mado up her mind about tho seat, an had found ono for herself close against tho ship s side, on tho weather nuarter It was net a pleasant location, but sho had chosen it, and had wrapped a largo shawl about her m an oxclusivo sort o way, ho saw no plausible ground for interfering. Nothing could havo been moro dis creet and retiring than Miss Elton's be havior, but tho perseverance of a man who finds himself bored by too much ot ins own nnu his alter ego s society. is an incalculable forco against which no woman can successful v entrench herself, nnd so it was not long before urowo lound himsclt eliminated, as superfluous factor, from tho sum of his trionds oninvment, whetiover Miss Llton appeared above deck. Ilia suc cess, however, was morn apparent than real, tor although ho know her name, and was allowed to carry her book and snawi, and arrange her chair In th most comfortable position with refer enco to tho wind or the sun, ho ha really made 110 great progress in her confidence. Who she was, or why sho nan chosen to make tho voyage In thii uiiuuiivi'iiiiuiiui mm eeuuiitriu wn .'ay. inaincd as great n mystery as it hat' been 011 that memorable first day. was tho close of the tenth day, dating trom mat ot his discovery, and Jului sat beside her In that intimate fasluo bred of tho isolation of tho sea. Ho had been reading to her, but tho story was tlntshod, and n sllcnco had ensued, sho appearing to bo wrnpnei in iiiongiii ami lie watched her laco with half-veiled glances. "Ihreo inore ilavs nnd wo shall bo nt homo, ehn said, rousing herself. 'You count tho days," he Bald, 'or you cagor to bo thoro t" "JNoj neither eager nor reluctant. Tho voyago has been pleasant, but it ill be nice to bo on shoro again, too." "What, or rather, who, is going to tnako it nice t Anybody in particu lar r Sho put tho question aside with n little wavo of her hand. "You nro curious." sho said, mis chievously. Julius bit his lip. Ho wa; curious, and this was not tho first timo sho had foiled him. "You want much to know just who nnd what I nm," sho went on. ""Sou havo mado a dozen attempts to find out. Tell mo why. What difference could it tnako to you ? If I were to tell you that I am n tnoeo ot tho ttov ernor of Kentucky ; mind I don't say that I am," sho cautioned, ns Julius mado a gesturo of surprise. "I say if woro to tell you so, and add that J. am mistress of an independent fortune, ould that enhance my valuo in your oyes I Julius drummed upon tho arm of lis chair, and looked at her in silence. "Suppose, on the contrary, sho wont on, impetuously, nnd with a cer tain warmth of tono that seemed to spring from linured nride, "I wero to ten you that 1 am an orphan without tortunoi that I had iitst money enough to carry me through tho coiiser atory of Paris, and that I am hoping and expecting to tnako my living by teaching music would that lower mo in vour regard 1" Julius still remained silent, perhaps littlo abashed bv the results of his own temerity. "I see that I havo embarrassed you,' sho said laughing. "1 shall not insist upon an answer. I leave you to adopt whichever hypothesis best suits you. bho gathered up her shawl and book as Bhe spoke, and made n motion to lse, but Julius laid a detaining hand upon her arm. "No, no, you mustn't go vet," ho ex claimed, and ho fancied he perceived a winess in her oyes as sho turned them toward him, which touched him inex pressibly. "I am embarrassed, not so much by your hypothesis as by some thing in myself. Since you leave mo to chooso between theso hypotheses, I will take tho latter. You .Ire, then, an orphan without fortune, hoping and ex pecting to inako your living by teach ing music. To prove to you how littlo J deserve your implied reproach, I will confess what I should have concoaled from tho Governor's niece. Miss El ton, I adore you." "Mr. Hilder 1" sho exclaimed, spring- ng to her feet with flashing eyes. wen, no said, quietly, "you chal lenged me." "You are impertinent, sir, and she swept away with dignity. bho remained closelv in her own cabin during tlio remainder of the1 af ternoon and until quite lata the next morning, when Julius, who had main tained an anxious and impatient watch upon deck, found her in the saloon sip ping a cup of tea and nibbling a pieco of toast, by way of breakfast. "1 hope you havo forgiven me, he said, tt-king a seal beside her. Hut I have not, she answered, with decision. "Which have I offended tho Gov ernor s neice or tho orphan music teacher?'' ho asked, with a saucy smile. "Both. It was n daring imperti nence to tho one, and a piece of inso lence toward tho other." "Well, I don't seo what I'm to do about it. It isn't tho sort of thing you can expect a man to tako back.1' ".No, sho said, looking absently in to her cup, then suddenly realizing that this was not just what sho should havo said, sho hurried to add, amid a contusion of blushes, "That is, of course, you must tako it back ; at least you mustn't say anything moro about it." "Never ?" "Never." "But that's impossible." "Mr. Hilder." "Miss Elton." "I think we've had enough of this. It was my fault I am willing to ad mit that. It was wretched taste on my part, and I'vo suffered all sorts of things iu consequence.'' bhe waved her hand toward her cab in as sho spoke, indicating that it was thus her hours of retirement wero spent. "Let mo go back to tho first ques tion," sho continued. "You asked mo whether thero was anybody to make it pleasant for mo on shore. Thero was no reason but my own perversity why I should not havo answered at once. No, nobody that I am at nil suro will caro to make il pleasant for mo. I havo a dear old undo who has always been very good to me, but when he hears how naughty I havo been, I don't know what ho will say to me," and sho puckered tip her whito fore head into an expression of compunc tious perplexity. "Well,'' ho said, after waiting somo time lor her to resume, "is that all T "That nnswers your question, docs it not." "My question as originnlly put yes, I believo it docs ; but it has been so amplified that you can hardly expect mo to bo satisfied with that meagre an swer. "Amplified l I don't understand." "Thoso two ingenuous hypotheses, lor instance wero thoy both pure ho tion, or which was tho true statement V "Both pnro inventions," sho return. cd, laughing and blushing again. "I nm not that brilliant creature, a Gover nor's niece, nor yet that moro useful and respcctablo one, a teacher of musio. Tho Governor's niece was just a bit of satire. I traveled a fow weeks onco in eompuny with such a peiBon, and tho constant iteration with which sho dwelt upon her title, and tho amount of respect it seemed to inspire in tho minds of those who heard it, gavo mo tho impression that it was the highest rank nu unmarried woman could attain in America. I think tho impression miisi uo well jonnited, too, as 1 noticed it produced quite an client upon you. "XN01 1110 eitect you imagine.

"I have no doubt it's awfully funny," ho said, as she wiped tho tears from her cheeks, "but I think I could enjoy it moro if I knew just tho point of view lrom which you sec it.

Sho did not reappear during the day. It was their last day at sea, and Julius was iu despair. Tho jetties' light was in sight when ho retired, and when ho woko in the morning the smooth glid ing motion of the ship announced that they were in tho river. He was not iu hasto to see tho low shores of the Mississippi in fact, ho felt at the mo ment that he had hated them ; yet ho sprang up, dressed with despatch and mounted to tho deck. Everybody was thero but tho one he sought. He stood near tho companion-way, watching furtively, and starting at every step. Sho did not come, neither was sho at the breakfast table. Tho hours glided by, tho city roso into view, passengers came on deck with satchels and umbrellas, prepared for going ashore, but still that partic ular cabin door remained closed. They wero at the wharf, tho staging was run out, nud a dozen or moro citizens rush ed across with that strange eagerness so inexplioablo to the voyager, whose eagerness impells him in the opposite direction.

APVANTAOT.S TO III: DKRIVKI). An analysis of tho provisions of the bill is here gircn. I ho advantages to bo expectod from its passage, tho report asseits, aro as tollows : First. It largely reduces tho aver- ago charges now paid by tho public for I telegraphic services. Taking all the evidence together, it must bo very near tho fact to say that the reduction mado by the bill in the averago charge per telegram will be from thirty-nine cents to twenty-five cents immediately and twenty cents nt tho end of five years. second, llioplan inaugurated by the first ten sections of the bill secures during tho first live years an absolute uintorinity of ch irges for day tele grams within nil distances not exceed ing 1U0U miles, and for night telegrams within all distances not exceeding 2000 miles. Third. The plan provided in this bill secures from tho commencement cf its operation a uniformity of charges, irrespective of the amount of business in different places, for telegrams to newspapers and to commercial news associations : that is to say, for all tele grams which convey tho current news tor publication by tho press and intelli gence to tho public of tho daily and hourly changes in tho foreign and do mestic markets. This uniformity docs not exist, and never will under tho ex clusive control by privato companies of tho business of telegraphing. It is a weighty recommendation of this bill that it secures it. Tho procurement of the intelligence which tho newspapors ought to give, and do give lo the country, will thus bo mado as cheap ic I ono place as in another, saving only tho unavoidable equality which arises from tho fnot that tho number of newspa- pers which may oombino to purchase the intelligence is greater in some placo3 than in others. So, too. tele- graphic advices to commercial news as- sociations of tho course of the markets win 00 subject to tho same charges in 1 all places. I Tin: cns'soitsuiL' question. Fourth. The bill, while it may not wholly remove, does, to an important egree, lessen the danger that the pur veying and preparation of the intelli gence sent to newspapers and to .coin mercial news associations will be sub jeeted to aconcealed censorship, where by it may bo colored or distorted so as to subserve political purposes, to mis lead public- opinion ns to the merits or demerits of men and measures, to pre vent legislation and to favor schemes ot privato gain. Under the present telegraphm system the possibility of nuv.11 . ajiuuiua ua uuunuiollllJ, wuiuu IS ono 01 the most alarming dangers which menace tho country, arisea in two distant ways, each of which re quires a separato consideration. The first is the power which tho telegraph companies themselves havo of mauipu- iiuiiig iiuwb, t,ior sinister purposes) and tlie second is the samo power pos sessed by the Associated Press and other similar associations, not them selves owning telegraph lines, but mak ing special compacts for transmission of t.'Iegrams over lines owned nnd managed by others. It will appear that the power of the telegraph company iu this respect will be entirely taken awav bv the pending bill ami that tho power of the Associated Press and similar associa- tions will he greatly reduced. For the purpose, tlio report says, of giving fabulous fortunes to its inside mana gers and their friends tho Western Union need not send untrue market quotations. It had only to give tho truo quotations n single hour, or less than that in advance to thoso whom it means to favor and tho work is effect- uauy accomplished, sso such power should bo allowed to exist iu this country, even if no past abases of it can bo shown to havo occurred, or even if it bo believed that there has been 111 fact 110 abuso of it. Tho temp tation to abuso it is onormous, and will sooner or later provo to bo irresistible. Tho bill will effectually tako tho power away from the Western Union, or any omer privato telegraph company, by 1110 low raics which it secures to every body, nnd by the still lower rates wiucn 11 seoures 10 commercial news associations.

Mr. Banting's dietary, though irksome, was not ascetic, but to tho many patients it was bo weakening that for ouo who has been relieved by it a dozen havo experienced actual iniurv. It is oasv to becomo thin by not taking sum food to Biipply tho wasto which is . . .... . - - . fl'tcicnt con- tinttally going ou, though in this caso the cure is worso than tho disease. Pro fessor Ebstctn scorns all such treat ment. Ho will havo nothintr in the shapo of starvation remedies, because while wo aro starving wo sacrifico albu- men as well as fat, and tho loss of fat during famino causes anaemia, which demands compensation in tho shano of a mo moro plentilul diet, in itself likely to lead to a still greater accumulation of tho verv substance of which it is desir ed to get rid. Enuallv useless and in adequate in his opinion aro tho various drink cures, bo they hot or cold. Pro- lessor libstcin agrees with Mr. Want ing in advocating legituen alono ns the only safo euro for an inconveni ence which most frequently results from too much food. But he adopts a dietary widely different. lhe crucial difference is on tho question of eating fat. Fat is tho sheet anchor of Dr. Ebstein. So far from making ono fatter, it is able, by "com bining with the albuminous materials and tho carbo hydrates," each in duo proportion, to operate effectively against obesity, tho removal of which re solves itself rather into a question of a permanent change of habits based on physiological principles than of mere cure in the ordinary acceptation of the term. No ono need expect to become thin in a fow weeks, nor will a pcrma i ! . f 1 ucni improvement in uguro uo guaran teed if the .regimen is not adhered to for the remainder of tho patient's life. Inanition must bo avoided, and tho fat taken to satisfy the cravings of appo tito must be of unexceptionable equal ity. No dyspeptic, wo aro assured, need fear fat so long as ho does not take too much, and, indeed, so admira- blo is that substance, long dreaded by delicate, that, by checking nitrogenous waste, it appeases thirst as well as hunger, a fact, in part nt least, known even by Hippocrates. Mr. Banting permitted any fish, except salmon ; but Dr. Banting eucouraged his patients to enjoy, "in nioderatiou, of course," not only this dish, but pave de fole gras and similar delicacies, which go far to reconcilu the corpulent gourmet to tho exclusion of carbo-hydrales. "Carbo- I hydrates, are, indeed his sole detesta- sweet of nil kinds. nnl nntinu,. in rv form ho forbids unconditionally. Three to threo and a half ounces of bread per day aro permitted, and of vegetables, asparagus, sumach, cab- bago and the various legumes rich in albumen aro allowed. Of meats he ex cludes none, and it is needless to add that so far from wishing the fat peoplo to avoid ine jai in lhe Uesh, ho begs thi'in to pick out all that they can get. 1 permit, writes this liberal minded opponent of the "starving doctor," ba- COii fat, fat roast pork and mutton, kidney fat, and when no other fat is at hand I recommend marrow to be add ed to the soups. I allow the sauces to bo mado juicy, as did Hippocrates. only, for his sesam oil I substitute but ter 1 at is his stronghold. On this ho depends, not as a mendioament, but as a food ; it has, in his opinion, been a much maligned article of diet, aud though ho by no means recommends tho men of full body to consume a third of what tho German soldier is al lowed in war time, he is convinced that oven with two to threo and a half ounces tho patient need not eat more than three-hfths of '.ho meat winch is required under Mr. Banting's system. Ou no condition must there bo an "af- ternoon tea," or othe tween meals." Ale permitted to the ext er such "snacks bc- tMcoholio drinks aro permitted to tho extent of two or three glasses of light wino at dinner, but beer is barred, unless, indeed, "tho per mitted carbo-hydrates be correspond ingly restricted," though even then tho ale accepted as an equivalent must be nn extremely moderate amount. Tho diet of a cured patient was something like tho following : i-or breakfast, a large cup of black tea, without milk or sug ar, and two ounces of broad, with plen ty 01 uutter ; at v.au in winter or at u or 0.30 in summer. For dinner, bo tween 2 and 3 o'clook, soup, "often with marrow," four to six and a half ounces of roast or boiled meat, vegeta bles in moderation, but no. potatoes and almost no saocharino turnips. After dinner a little fresh fruit, or a salad, or stowed fruit, without sugar, with two or threo glasses ot light wine, followed by a large cup of black tea, without milk or sugar. Supper of blaok tea, fat roast meat, or eggs, or some ham with fat bologna "sausage, smoked or trcsh hsh, and n littlo bread well but- tercd, with cheeso nnd fresh fruit, for- mcd tho concluding meat at tho hour of 7or 8.
