The diamonds, you must know, have
been ever so long in our family. It is
aid they were brought from India in
the time of Marco Holo by an ancestor
of mine. But that is neither here nor
tbere. and sure enough, they were only
put into their present shape quite re
cently 1 can remember when half of
them were uncut, or cut in some bar
baroos, oriental manner, picturesque
enough but not fashionable. And some
were mounted as nose rings, some as
clasps, some in the hilts of daggers and
in all sorts of other ways. When 1 was
a child i was sometimes allowed to play
with some of the loose ones as a treat,
nntil at last 1 contrived to lose one of
the biggest. Yon may not believe it
bnt the governor actually horsed nie
and gave me a birching, and the dia
monds were locked np from that day.
It was only a few years ago that my
dear mother, now no more, got them
out and insisted upon thoir being made

but a Saxon, boru in Dresden, 1 believe,
or some village in that neighborhood.
His name was Rudolph Hoiunch Ru
dolph. He live. I and worked in a Utile
dark shop in the Latin quarter.
He and 1 became quite intimate. You
see. I had been commissioned to attend
to this diamond busine.v' and to remain

1 used to sit and watch him work for

talk a good deal of it was. He was a
thorough artist aud enthusiast, and
seemed to care for nothing outside of
his profession. He did not appear to me

and it occurred to me that it might tie
acceptable were I, in an unobtrusive
way to introduce him to some wealthy
customers. I kuew few people in I'ans;
but there was a Mr. Birchmore, an
American gentleman, staying at my
hotel, with whom I had foregathered
over a cup of coffee and a cigar once or
twice, he was a handsome, middle aged
man. with an atmosphere of refined af
fluence about him such as would have
befitted a dtika Not a bit like your tra
ditional Yankee, in fact. I'm uot sure
that I should have suspected him if I
hadn't seen bis address "Fifth avenue,
New York city, Li. S. A. in the hotel
register about a week after my arrival.
He was an agreeable man euough,
though not at all the sort to take liber
ties with, however, I made np my mind
that I would get lum to Rudolph's on
the first pretext that offered.
Well. I ha.l an excellent pretext be
fore long Mr Kirchmure came into
the cafe one afternoon, with rather an
annoyed look, and mado some iuquiries
of the waiter Francois raised his eye
brows and shrugged his shoulders; there
was some furt tier conference, and then
he and Mr. Birchmore liegan searching
about the Moor of the room It presently
transpired that he had lost a diamond
out of his ring, which had contained
three matched brilliant. It was no
where to be found
"I don t mind the loss of the stono it
self," fwid Mr Birchmore at last. Hitting
down near my table; 'but it's one of a
set matched with great difficulty, and
I'm afrai 1 I may never replace it."
Here was my opportunity. I set forth
the wisdom, skill and resources of my
little Saxon friend in glowing colors,
mentioned the work he was doing for
me. and declared that if any man m
Europe could help Mr. Birchmore to re
pair his loss, Rndolph was he. Mr.
Birchmore at first paid little heed to my
representations, but finally 1 induced
him to accompany me to the Latin
quarter, and at least make the attempt.
The next morning, accordingly, we set
forth, and as we sanntered along the
wide, pleasant boulevards our conver
sation became more free and affable
than it had been hitherto. 1 found my
companion could be exceedingly enter
taining when he chose it. and had a vast
fun 1 of exiierience and adventure to
draw upon. He had been almost every
where; be bad made himself familiar
with all varieties of civilized and un
civilized men; as a matter of course, too,
he was a versatile lingnist.
The only direction in which ho gave
any evidence of comparative deficiency
was in that of literature and the fine
arts. His life had been essentially an
active one; he cared little for Tennyson
and Swinburne, for Matthew Arnold
and (Jarlyle. He hud. however, read and
appreciated "Macbeth," and some other
of Shakespeare s plays, and he was well
acquainted with several of the romances
of "Unabashed Defoe." I did not dis
cover all this in the course of that ono
stroll over to the Latin quarter, but it
leaked out during our subsequent ac
quaintance, which was destined to be
come more intimate and prolonged than
1 had any idea of then. As I have inti
mated, Mr. Birchmore was quite frank
aud open in his talk, except upon one
Of his inner life and circumstances I
could learn nothing. Though he never
was obtusely reticent, yet he con
trived never to refer to his own private
affairs. 1 could not satisfy myself
whether he were married or single,

years in a diamond mine for one thing." ;
He seemed on the oiiit of saving more, 1

"It wouldn't sell for a penny under

"Five hundred aud eighty-five thou

Rudolph, to whom the word had lieen
addressed. "Monsieur's estimate would
have lieen correct but that this stone
here is a little off color aud this ono has
a slight Haw. which is uow in part con
cealed by the setting."
"Yon travel under projier precautions,
I trust:"' said Birchtuore after a pause,
turning gravely to me. "I know thu

your courage aud cleverness, butadozeii
or a si-ore of thieves might conspire to-1

against their skill and address no single;

something of it. I was robbed once."
"IVi tell me alsiut it." 1 exclaimed,
with an impulsive betrayal of interest
that made me smile the next moment. ,
"Another tune," said he. shaking his
head. nti. I presently he added. "You will

Mr. Birchmore said nothing more, and '
indeed seemed scarcely to listen to my
remarks. I now suggested to lain that
he might show Rudolph his ring. He.
put his hand to Ins waistcoat s k. t and ;
gave a half suppressed ejaculation of dls-;
