DEFINITION OF WORD CARAT
Has Different Meaning When Appti
to Purenes of Cold and Size
' of Precious Stone.
; Vou have Probably oftou heard of
,h8 word carat applied In Jewelry and
such things, but p rhapa you do not
know that It has an entirely different
meanlug when It Is used for a ring
and for a diamond lu tho ring.
The Jeweler tells you that the ring
or your watch case Is IS carat gold
and you have an idea that it must be
pretty good, as you never have heard
of any that was 20 or 22. What the
Jeweler means Is that eighteen twenty
fourths of the ring is pure gold and
that the rest Is copper.
Pure gold is 24 carats fine and
would be too soft for evory-day use,
so it Is mixed with an alloy to make
it harder. The best alloy known for
this purpose Is copper, as It Interferes
very little with the color of the gold.
If a ring is only 14 carat, that means
that nearly half of It is copper, and "allow duck-rond and a little pavtl

Petting a Horse.

they are petted in the right place.
Here lies the trouble, however, and
the reason why so many horses shy at j
being caressed. People, as a rule, do -
not know w here to pot them. Nearly
everyone will pet the horse upon the!

to fear some person In that wing, for
he had turned from the path and made
a circuit over the grass. I had al

that Henderson 'wi the thief, prob

of the warrant for his arrest. It was
