In South Pacific water are found some

Attention was first attracted to this trap
when a party of men wore rowing over
the reef In search of rare corals. They
saw a large fish beating the surface vlo
](ntly with its head out of the water.
As they drew' near they saw that the
fish was a large shark, which had been
caught in a living trap. Its tail, or the
lower lobe, was held securely by a giant

*‘\V omlcr Collier’*—Eogjisli Croun'K
Rare Black I'earls Stolen anil Re
covered—Million* in Gems.
From the Chicago Tribune.
Not long ago a list of American multi
millionaires made the rounds in the news
paper press. It is probably one of the
most significant signs of the times, dem
onstrating the leveling influences of mod
ern conditions, that nowadays treasures
nre gent rally measured by dollars and
cents. Yet, it can be truthfully said that
some of (lie most famous treasurers can
not be purchased for any amount of the
modern circulating medium.
The author who would write the history
of the jewelry box of the beautiful woman
tvho Mould have to tell the romance of
her heart, for each diamond, each
smaragd, each pearl that has become fa
mous in history has a more or less inter
esting history of its own. How much
more interesting is it to review the jew
elry boxes of women of royalty, for these
treasures have mostly played an import
ant role in the history of the world.
However, time has wrought changes
even in this respect. The extravagant
luxury in jewels and precious stones,
which began in France during the reign
of Louis XIII, is decidedly out of date to
day. Princesses and ladies of the court
wore necklaces of such dimensions that
they covered nearly the entire breast. Ear
rings, with their pendants, were so long
and heavy that they would excite more
ridicule than admiration at present.
atchcs, which were worn pending from
the belt, were of the size of a hen’s egg,
and covered with diamonds.
The family treasure of the Duchesse of
Genoa contains a necklace from the days
of Louis XIII. It consists of net le=s than
nine rows of diamonds, each row alter
nating with one of pearls of marvelous
b'auty, ending in two rubies of enormous
size containing the clasps. Pendant from
the last row of diamonds is a star of the
size of a Chicago policeman’s badge, fot m
fd from Oriental jewels. It is the broad
est and heaviest necklace known. A simi
lar piece of jewe ry is owned by Princess
Maria Josepha of Saxony, now Grand
Duchess Otto of Austria.
This Princess, nee Maria Josepha of
Saxony, has one of the largest collections
of jewelry in existence, In which the blue
sapphire dominates. The chief piece is a
magnificent tiara of diamonds with a cen
ter star of blu * sapphires, surmounted
by a crown of rubies. This brilliant piece
almost overshadows a necklace cf three
rows of pearls of rare size and beauty
fastened by a clasp of pearls and dia
monds. This pice harmonizes well with
a brooch of diamonds encircling a large
blue sapphire. Three small bracelets, one
of diamonds, the second of diamonds and
sapphir.s, and the third of diamonds and
rubies, together with a corsage string of
diamonds, complete the set. Aside from
these there are numerous single pieces in
all the imaginable forms of the jeweler’s
art. These form the private possessions
cf the Princess, who has bes'de them the
family jewels of the Grand Ducal Otto
house at her disposal.
The most magnificent ear set is proba
bly the one owned by the princely Met
ternich family. It is valued at $150,000.
and was once offered by Mine, du Carry,
the favorite of Louis XV., o Queen Ma
rie Antoinette for the favor of having the
madame rece ved at court. The Queen In
dignantly rep lied the offer, w r hereupon
the Du Carry presented the Jewels to the
Queen s lady in wai lng with the ex
clamation: “Your ears are as worthy to
wear these brilliants as those of the Aus
trian woman.’’ The lady in waiting sold
the earrings to the Austrian ambassador
In Paris, who in turn disposed of them
to Prince Metlernich.
Among he princely houses who have of
recent years figured prominently among
the purchasers of rare jewels the Co
burgs, Thurn und Taxis and the Tuscany
family are prominent. The jewels of
Duchess Clementine of Coburg are insur
ed for $1,000,000, which in itself does not
appear to be so much, when It is known
that a single neekehain of Baroness
Rothschild Is estimated at $360,000. Bar
oness Alfons of the Paris branch of the
Rothschild family has collected rare
pearls for years and these have been unit
ed in what is known in Jeweler circles as
the “wonder collier.” It contains, among
others, two black pearls of a size and
purity not surpassed by any others.
Rare Black Penrlw Stolen.
The English orow'n contains five great
black pearls now'. For a long time there
were but two of these rare jewels. About
150 years ago three of these black pearls
w'ere stolen. The five original pearls
were at the time the only black pearls
then known, and, despite the utmost ef
forts of the English government, the
stolen treasure could not be discovered
for a long time. Finally one black pearl
was traced to Brussels, where the Duch
ess of Richmond wore it in a bracelet.
The second one of the stolen black
pearls was found in a necklace owned
by the Russian Princess Orlow. It w'ns
learned that these pearls had come
through fifth hand to a noted Jeweler,
whose honesty in the transaction could
not be questioned. The English govern
ment bought back these pearls at an
Tramp Held One of the Gems.
This left the third pearl unaccounted
for. Then It happened that one day a
seedy individual stepped Into a Jew
elry store in Buda Pcsth. The caller
looked so shabby that one of the clerks
pushed a velvet covered chair out of
his way so that It might not be used
by the strange customer. The latter,
however, coolly took another seat, took
from his pocket a paper, and from the
latter a small black object which he
presented to the Jeweler with the ab
••How much is this worth?”
"This is worth very much, indeed,” re
plied the astonished Jeweler. “It Is a
black pearl; one of the greatest rarities.
There are some gray pearls, but not of
this size and rarity. It has a flaw, be
cause It was once In a setting, still It i*
of great value. Where did you buy it?”
”A gentleman wants to pawn It with
me,” explained the caller. “Tell me how
much it is worth.”
“That I can not say because it Is such
“Can I give 200 guilders for It?”
"Five times as much quite readily.”
"Don’t you want to buy It yourself?"
"Not I. for there is but one firm in
Austria that could sell it again. This Is
the court Jeweler, Btedermann. in Vienna.”
The shabby man with the rare treasure
disappeared without another word. He
appeared the next day in the establish
ment of Herr Bledermann. who had Ihe
caller arrested In short order.
The investigation proved that the seedy
fellow was once the valet of Count Lud
wig Bathyanyl. the Hungarian patriot,
who, In 1849. was hanged by the Austrian
government for high treason. Before lie
went to the gallows the Count presented
the pearl, set in a breastpin, to his trusty
servant, telling him:
“Take 11. This black pearl was bought
by one of my ancestors as a talisman of
good tuck. Take It as a keepsake from
one who is going to be banged.”
