GEMS FUR THE BELLES.
THE DIAMOND MERCHANT’S RE
TURN TO WASHINGTON.
Official and Society Ladies Dazzled
With His Display of Gems L ast Season
$200,000 Worth Sold—Mrs. Whit
cey s $60,000 Necklace- A $20,000
From the Xeui York Sun.
Washington, Nov. TJ.— One of the sen
sations jn Washington society during the
last season was the appearance of a noted
dealer in precious stones, who created a
furor among the ladies of the Cabinet and
high officials, and in social circles. He ap
proached society with his gems from anew
direction —a social one. A handsome and
courteous gentleman himself, with a beau
tiful wife, both accustomed to good social
usages, the diamond merchant was able to
reach the inner circles of society. He had
quarters at the Aldington, and within a few
weeks alter his arrival he had Washington
ladies in a fever of excitement over the
splendid gems with which he dazzled their
eyes, and all the husbands in Washington
going down into their pocketbooks, and
wishing the Cincinnati merchant was in
Jericho. When the season closed, nearly
$200,000 had passed into the pockets of the
dealer in precious stones, and rich and rare
were the gems that flashed upon many a
white neck and arm in the great society
crushes of the latter part of the season,
whose owner had trusted before that to the
power of their own beauty unadorned.
One of the first of the many stories set
afloat about the craze for gems was of the
liurchase by the Whitneys of u SOO,OOO neck
ace. In tho necklace were forty stones,
graded from the great centre stone each
way to stones of the weight of a thistle
down. All the diamond markets in the
world had been searched to accomplish the
graduation. Soon afterward there was a
story about some unpleasantness in the
household of a Western politician of na
tional fame on account of a loving wife
opening a letter to her husband containing
a bill for diamonds which she hud never re
ceived, and there were a good many ex
planations, and friends called in and a peace
patched up by the purchase of more dia
monds, which did go to tho wife and not to
some other person.
It was told of the wife of a far Western
Senator, that while sitting in the parlor of
a hotel, after having sent up her card to the
wife of another Senator living at the hotel,
her attention was attracted to a little group
of ladies gathered about the diamond mer
chant, who had spread his wares on the
piano for their inspection. She listened to
their “alls'’ and “ons,” and little screams of
ecstatic admiration, and than crossed the
room and joined the group. She handled
the gems with an appearance of indifference
blended with the air of a connoisseur. The
other ladies, wives of Congressmen and
government officials, stood back respect
t ully. Finally she picked up a great car
buncle pendant set in a double row of iiearls
and diamonds, and said:
“What do you value that at?”
“Seventeen hundred dollars,” was the re
The lady opened her reticule, took out a
check book, made out a check for the
amount, put the pendant in her pocket, and
calmly resumed her chair. She paralyzed
that group of ladies, and at the same time
added another jewel to a collection which is
already one of the richest owned by any
The diamond merchant has returned to
town, and is prepared for another campaign.
Last night he hail an adventure in the Eb
bitt House that made his hair curl. He is
noted for dealing in gems of extraordinary
size and value, and is intrusted with the
sale of such gems by European and New
York dealers. He took a friend into tho
reading-room of the hotel to show
him an extraordinary opal, claimed to be
the largest and finest in America, set
in diamonds. He spread out the stones
on the table, and they made a brilliant and
dazzling display. The opal, which is over
an inch long and wonderfully iridescent,
was admired, together with a big amethyst
set in brilliants, and a handful of diamonds
of different values, some of them, as the?
saying goes, worth a king’s ransom. At
length he carefully produced the star of the
collection, a diamond of fifteen carats,
which he says is the finest in the world
which is for sale, and is valued at $20,000.
He put the great stone in his tweezers and
passed it over to his friend, against his
usual custom, which is always to hold the
stone in his own hand when enclosed in the
tweezers. Just as the stone was changing
hands, and the diamond merchant was say
ing, “Hold it firmly,” there was a snap, a
streak of light, a click on tho marble floor,
and the diamond was gone. The party of
men were sittt,— at the end of the writing
table near the windows opening on F street,
and the stone shot toward the other end or
the large rwcan, from which doors open into
the general office near the washroom and
the news-stand. The two or three other
gentlemen in the room sprang for the $20,-
(100 diamond, and everybody went down on
hands and knees in a search for it. The
doors were hurriedly closed, and Mr. Burch,
the head clerk summoned. Here was a for
tune in one little stone lying somewhere
alxmt the hotel floors, and crowds of per
sons, servants, etc., passing and repassing.
The stone seemed to shoot into the corner of
the room behind the door leading into the
general ofliee, and search was made there.
“If the stone is in sight you cannot miss
it,” said the diamond merchant. “You
might as well try to hide a coal of fire.”
It was found that in that particular
corner there were two holes through the
floor, where formerly heating pipes had
passed. When the diamond merchant saw
them he put his hands over his white face,
from which the perspiration was pouring,
“My God! What have I done?”
Meanwhile a negro had been brought in
and ordered to sweep the floor. There had
been no thought that the diamond had gone
out of the room into the general office. The
rumor of some great loss spread about, and
the people standing about the lobby came
crowding about the guarded doors of the
reading loonj. Just at this point, Dr. F. 8.
Coues, of the United States navy, came out
of the wash-room, and, seeing the crowd
and the people inside the reading room
creeping and searching, he stepped in and
said to the negro with the broom:
“What’s the matter? Something lost?’
“Yes, sah,” was the reply.
“What is it?” asked the doctor.
“ ’Deed I don’t know, sah. There is the
man that lost it,” pointing l the merchant.
“What have vou lost?” asked Dr.Coues.
“A diamond,*’ was the answer.
“Well, I guess 1 found - said the doctor,
and he pulled the $20,000 gem from his vest
pocket and placed it in the had of the dia
The merchant’s trained eye recognized it
nt once, and he threw his arm around the
(lo'-tor’s neck, anil there was a sigh of relief
nil around. The doctor had picked it up in
the door of the wash room, where it
had been shot by a carrom on the wall
inside the reading room, and put it hi his
'est pocket with the intention of handing it
in at the office. •
“I bad uo idea about the thing,” he said
afterward. “I thought, it was some bril
liant or Oregon diamond, find then conclu
ded that it came off from ouo of those glass
pendants ori the chandelier. In fact, I came
near not picking it up at all, and would not
have done so except for its exceptional bril
liancy. Even in the dark, where it lay, it
w os like a star.”
It is probable that Dr. Coues by this time
is not without a souvenir of the occasion,
®nd that hereafter the diamond merchant
■will hold his tweezers with an iron grip.

THE OLD ROUNDER’S STORY.
A Simple Little Tale in the Casino Bal
cony—A Bleecker Street Angel.
From the Xew York Graphic.
Some men were chatting ou the Casino
balcony last night. Shapely forms, rich
dresses and flashing jewels illuminated the
stage below, and these men talked of ac
tresses and their conquest and conquests.
Four were rather sapless young men in the
immaculate evening dress and eyeglasses.
The fifth was a man who commanded atten
tion when he rarely spoke. He was the
popular type of a club man; portly, un
ruffled, purple of face, heavy or jawl and
perfectly attired in a Prince Albert coat and
yellow checked trousers. He was something
of a mystery even to his club. He was
known to be a man with a his
tory. The single young men knew
him only for an incorrigible roun
der and an unswerving patron of
the drama. After the other four had
bragged themselves out as to them stage
door experiences, the old rounder said:
“When I was a younger man, boys, I had
a little of this sort of experience myself. And
I don’t mind telling you a story.”
The four young men eagerly listened.
“You remember, perhaps, though you
were ail at the university then, when the
‘Black Crook’ was first brought out at
Niblo’s Garden. I was just back from
Paris, and I feel bound to say the fuss made
over it was ridiculous. I was there the first
night, aud got down there pretty often
afterward. In fact there was a girl on the
stage that I’d taken a mighty fancy to. She
was third in the line of tho amazons—a
slight, shrinking little thing, with the face
of Raphael’s Madonna. Tho first night I
sent a bouquet behind with niycard; and
on it was the number of my cab. That
used to be the method, you know. You
chaps haven’t improved on it. Well. I
waited beside the cab till midnight, and
drove off alone. The next night I occupied
a stage box. I hate to be auspicious, but I
made up my mind to have that girl. I
managed to catch her eye,* and the next
time she passed me threw her a bunch of
roses. Inside was my card, and on one stem
was tied a big diamond ring. The girl saw
tooth,’and she deliberately kicked the flowers
into the orchestra.
“Well, I was younger then than I am
now- and carried rather less fiesh about me.
And I’m bound to say I hadn't been en
tirely neglected bv tho ladies. My blood was
up. Besides this 1 had a notion, based on
some experience, that the favors of any
chorus girl was only a question of time—
aud money. The next day my Madonna
had received a note addressed to her by her
real name—her first name, by the way, was
Mary—with the usual story of mad despair
at her indifference and—and all the rest of
it, you kuow. I told her I would wait that
night at the stage door and take her home.
At 31 o’clock there I was. Well disguised,
for men of the world those days, my boys,
didn’t like to be sen in such places. She
came out, closely muffled, but I knew her
springing step, and she had the air, by ,
of a duchess. I joined her at the corner of
“ ‘Well,’ said I, ‘here I ana.’
She said nothing; just looked at me with
her big eves and walked along. Well, I told
her how badly I felt at her indifference, and
how I would do anything to gain her love,
and a lot of the sort of rot that men think
all women expect, as I walked along beside
her. Bhe iticlu’t say a word; just walked
along and looked me straight in the face
whenever we came to a lamp-post. She
wasn’t afraid of me, and she played none of
the timid, don’t-touch-me, go-off-or-I’U
scream business. Just looked at me, you
know, and somehow I couldn’t talk with my
usual agreeable fluency. Somehow I felt
mean and cheap and low, and before we had
gone two blocks to the west of Broadway I
wanted to drop it and cut away. I don’t
know whether pride kept me or—or some
thing of what the parsons call Providence.
But I staid till she reached one of those old
fashioned brick houses below South Fifth
avenue and felt in her pocket for a key.
Then I plucked up nerve to say with pain
“ - Won’t you invite me up?’
“ ‘Yes, you may come up,’ she said as she
might have spoken to a beggar asking for
“Well, that knocked me all up. I tried to
kiss her, but she put me away, and I fol
lowed her up-stairs to a room on the third
story. A shaded lamp cast a dim light, and
1 only saw one thing. Lying asleep in a
double bed was a beautiful boy about two
years old. I ain’t sentimental, but I tell you
I felt as I looked at him, boys, and watched
that girl stoop over and kiss his hair—well,
you kuow the story of the shepherds in Pal
estine, eh ? The boy was sound asleep and
she turned to me. 11l never forget the
contempt, the indignation, the sadness, too,
of her face.
“ ‘This is my brother,’ she said, ‘Do you
think he needs diamonds ? And now you
“'Well, I got out somehow, and the next
day I sent a bank book to that boy with
enough to his credit on it to bring him up
like a gentleman.”
The old rounder stopped abruptly and
took a long draught of brand}- and soda.
The music arose from below like a lullaby.
There was an uncomfortable silence for a
moment. Then somebody asked:
“And what became of the girl i”
“Why—l married her.” And the old
rounder lit a fresh cigar and arose.
“Mhe is dead now,” he added, as he walked
Distillation of Wood.
From the Scientific American.
The Cadosia Chemical Cos., at Cadosia, N.
Y., has several establishments in that vicin
ity for the distillation of wood, which has
now became an extensive and important
Almost anj- of the harder varieties of
wood will answer, but thoso chiefly found
and used by this company, in the region it
now occupies, are birch, beech and maple.
Pine, hemlock and soft woods will not
answer. The general operations and prod
ucts of the company are as follows:
Contracts are made with the neighboring
fanners for the purchase of standing wood,
on which an agreed amount is paid in ad
vance, balance payable as fast as the wood
is cut by the company. The wood is deliv
ered at the works in ordinary four-foot
lengths and is then piled in the distilling
retorts, of which there are in the Cadosia
still house 24 nairs. The retorts consist of
cast iron, somewhat in the form of a steam
boiler about 10 feet long and feet diume
tor, having a largo manhole at. one end and
condensing exit neck at tho other end.
When a retort is filled with wood the man
hole is closed and sealed; a slow fire is then
started tinder tho retort. The first products
of the distillation, consisting of alcoholic
vapors, are passed through a condensing
worm, and tho liquid thus produced is sub
sequent! / redistilled and this product then
sold, Most of it goes to Binghamton\N. Y.,
where it is refined and put on the market as
The second products of the distillation,
consisting of acetic vapors, are condensed
as before described and tile liquid is mixed
with lime, thorough mixture being effected
by mechanical means, thus producing ace
tate of lime—used in cloth printing works.
The crudo acetate is placed above the retorts
on racks, where it is dried and is then ready
The third products of the distillation, con
sisting of tarry matters and naphthas, are
shipped as produced, and subsequently re
The last products, consisting of heavy
tare, arc used at the works as fuel. When
the distillation is finished, (here remains
within the retorts a mass of clean and beau
tiful charcoal, ready for market, and all df
it is sold to the steel makers. Most of it goes
to Troy, N. Y., where it is chiefly used in the
production of fine steel.
The principal fuel usod in these work* is
bituminous coal, which, together wifli the
crude lime required, is brought to the works
