GORMAN'S SEX AMONG DIAMONDS. A Xcw Vorlt Jeweler Discourse About a Tray of Precious Gciii!!. Ill t!io bijj show window of a jewelry store resti'd last week a small tray that gathered a crowd of curious spectators to the window. Kvory tinio tho sunlight played upon the pinto (ilnns tho tray cor uscated with iirimnatie hues of dazzling brilliancy. The tray is well known to the trade. It is designed to display tho re niiirkahla variations of tho color of large African mine diamonds, and contains ex amples of all tho colors known. It pos sesses meat interest for novices in gems, and the jeweler is called upon half a dozen times a day to explain the beauties of the specimens. "i "It took a long time to pet this collec tion together," the jeweler said, "and it is the only one in the town of tho kind thus arranged. You see here the brown dia mond, tho absinthe, the canary or yellow, the gem, tho pink, the rose and the coiieo and the green diamond. The effect of these combinations in tho sunlight is entrancing. Each predominant line seems to impart a distinct luster to tho prismatic scintilla tions. When the tray is swung to and fro in tho sunbeams, it- gives forth, as you sen, a perfect blaze of rainbow colors. . Tlieso gems also illustrato different cuttings of the diamonds. Wero thoy all set in a bracelet, or a brooch, or a necklace, they would make a rarely beautiful trinket, but it would cost a heap of money." The jeweler picked out one sparkler with a pair of diamond tweezers and hold it for ward in the show window. "This is a IJrazilian gem," he said, "like which there is only one other in the world, in Paris, and the French one is not as puro or as iVrge as this. This is what is called a black diamond, and is valued nt 2,500. It weighs a trillo less than four carats. Its beauty lies in the fact that it changes its color in different lights. In this strong sunlight you see it is almost black. It gives forth a prismatic radiance greater than that emitted by the best of the black gems. In gaslight, you observe, the black hue be comes a rich golden brown, and the play of colors is changed too. Diamonds of this sort nro regarded by the superstitious mi ners as 'gold stones,' that is, gems possess ing a power of imparting good luck to tho owner in tho search for hidden gold. This stone was secured In Paris, whither it was brought in rough for cutting by a Iiio Ja neiro merchant. "Here," continued tho jeweler, "is an other curiosity." Ha picked up a three carat wliito stone with the tweezers. "It is a specimen that will prove to you that there is a differeiieo of sex in gems. This is what is called tho female, a multiplying diamond." He held tho gem under a strong magni fying glass and pointed to four or five smaller diamonds clustered about one of the facets at the edgo of tho table of tho stone. "Tho 711.1I0 gem," the jeweler said, "is sharp pointed and never gathers these embryo gems. There is a fine specimen alongside that pink stone. It surprises most people who see those specimens to be told that they are of different sex as well as color, but such Is tho fact." Jewelers' Itovlew. The I'ltpurtluniible 8iu.

New York Advertiser. A Ilemurkublo Fig Tree. At, the drug store of Mr. J. M. Sprague in St. Paul there Is a thrifty fig tree four years old and perhaps live feet high, which came up spontaneously in a tub which con tained an oleander. The only way in which Its voluntary appearance is accounted for is that it grew from seeds of ligs which had been fed to a canary whose cage hung over tho tub. But tho most perplexing part of the problem rests on the fact that the figs were preserved. Will seeds of pre served figs retain their germinating prop erties? Sometimes, perhaps. St. Louis Magazine.
