"Who was MieV" I asked  him when we.had driven out of hearing.. "'Deed then, uint 1 don't, know"  said he. '"Tis some poor soul that  has lost her loaf arid will be goin' ln  l<d   hungry   tonight."  On miotiier occasion an  a������eil  man,  clad  in  l.ii(;c breeches and   a swallowtail      coat,  .'addressed  me  as  1 was  climbing a path in Connemara. "1 am  Uiinkin', sir," said he, "that you are  Air.   John Blake."   "Well,  sir."  said  I,  "you art thinking wrong."

The only  way to do it, with safety, is to cut  the stone up, and when a large stone  is  cut  it decreases greatly   in  value  Diamond'dealers all over   the world  are on  the lookout now for the large  pear-shaped  diamond   that   was  stolen    from the      Tiffany   work  rooms  some     time    ago.

Diamond dealers say that  the greater number of important jew  els that have been stolen have found  their way to these countries. 'he  Indian princes will buy and ask .\o  yucslions.  Diamond dealeis and police ail  over the civilized world have long  realized that as soon as a precious  stone finds its way to the Orient it  .s lost until its buyer dies and his  property is divided among his wives  oi   his  relatives.  The large precious stones generally  find  their way into the crowns      of  royalty.    The   OrlolT,   which   weighs  19-1',1  karats,  is m the Russian crown  jewels.   That stone formed one'of the  eyes of an idol  m the  Brahman temple on  the     Island of Skirangam  in  ilia Kaveri  River,  near Trichinopoli.  The story has   it that it  was stolen  from    theie early  in  Ihe  eighteenth  century by a French soldier.     From  him  it found  its  way- inlo   the hands  of  an Knglish  ship  captain   and     so  got  into Europe.  It   tinned   up   m   Amsterdam       in  J7!)l   and     for a time  it  was  called  the Amsterdam diamond.   It got its  name     of OrlolT,.when Prince OrloR  bought it for   1,100,000 Dutch florins  and piesented it to the Empress Ca-  tlierine     if.   of  Russia.    This  jewel  forms  the head  of the imperial scepter.      "  Three other  famous  jewels  in the  possession of the Russian crown   are  the  Shah, the Moon  of the     Mountains,  and  the Polar  Star���������the first  of o'S     karats,  the \second- of      J20  karals   and  the third  of  iu  kaiats.  The  Shah  is   an engraved  diamond,  one of the very    few large engraved  diamonds in existence.    AH are.perfect  blue white stones.  Catharine II.  bought    the Moon of  the Mountains  for -150,000 roubles, an annuity of 4,-  000  rubles, arid letters of royalty.  These are not by  any  means    the  la/'gest    known    stones in existence,  but they are among the  most valuL  able. because of their purity.    .Some  of the Jargest diamonds on reoord arc1,  Brazilian    stones, but.doubt always  has been   cast on their'genuineness.  The Braganza is .a Brazilian stone as  big   as alien's  egg  and weighing 1-  GSO karats.   It is preserved in     the  Portuguese crown  jewels,   but   therci  has  always    ,.een a doubt as  to its  genuineness.   If���������t is genuine, diamond  experts say,  it is worth $221,000,000  Another large stone on which there  has  been a nood .deal  of speculation'  as to its genuineness is owned by the  Rajah o������ Mattang, Borneo. It weighs  3C7 karats.  brilliant if it was offered for sale in  the shape it vvas stolen.   That  theie  are diamond dealers  who  are not reputable goes  without  saying,   but if  they bought     this stone they  would  buy  it with the  idea of cutting it.    i  Large, diamonds  are  not  so numerous   that  they cannot   be kept  tvack  of      When   a large   diamond   '.B   found  it sooner or later finds  its way     to  the greatest diamond market  in the  world,   ..which   is  London.
