THE DAILY COOS BAY TIMES, MARSHFIELD, OREGON, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1907.
Royal Jewels Of The World
Bernhardt, Dusc, Molba, Christine
Hilsson, Judic, and others nro own
ers of fine jewels; but Pnttl, tho
Bpollt child of two hemispheres,
queen of song even today, notwith
standing her G3 years, possesses tho
finest diamonds, turquoises, and
rubies of them all. Tho gems she
carried away as a girl from Russia
constituted ono small fortune thoso
the Rothschilds have given her
another. Queen Isabella of Spain, a
good singer herself, bestowed sap
phires and an amethyst brooch sur
xounded with pearls; a comb set
-with thirty-three brilliants was the
gift of tho Empress Eugenie; tho
emperors of Germany, Austria, and
Russia loaded her with diamonds;
even Queen Victoria sent a ruby and
diamond bangle a small one, 'tis
true but still Victorian, so Patti
prizes It. The treasures in her safe
aro inumerable fans heavy with
3ewels; a golden canary set with
yellow diamonds; and a llttlo brace
let, the gift of the subscribers at tho
St. Petersburg opera house a stave
of music in gold, and on it, indicat
ed In largo rubles and diamonds, tho
notes la, do, re, "i'Adoree," which,
Indeed, she was, of those passionate
lovers of music.
Most Valuable opnl In tho world Is
The most valuablo opal in the
-world is to bo seen in tho imperial
cabinet at Vienna. Another, worn
toy the Empress Josephine, known
as the "Burning of Troy", which is
only a llttlo less magnificent, is in
tho possession of the marchioness of
Uute. How the idea aroso in the
first instance that "the broken raln
Tjow of tho unlucky opal" brought
Ill-luck it Is not easy to tell. Somo
allege that the word Is derived from
tho Greek for an eye, that the gem
shares tho evil influence of a pea
cock's feather and acts as a spy In
tho house; others that the opal only
got its reputation after Sir Walter
Scott had connected it with bad luck
In "Anno of Geierstein." Certain
It Is, however, that strango coinci
dences have been observed in con
nection with this stone. Alfonso
XII, of Spain, presented en opal
ring to his young wife Mercedes on
their wedding day, and her sudden
death occurred shortly afterwards.
Before her funeral had taken place
tho king bestowed this ring on his
sister, Maria del Pilar, and she only
survived three days. Alfonso then
offered tho ring to his sister-in-law,
Princess Christina, who died in three
months. He then resolved to wear
the opal himself, and his life camo
shortly to an end. His widow, fear
ing its fatal Influence, kissed tho
ring, attached it to a chain, and
hung it around tho neck of tho sta
tue of the Virgin of Almudena, In a
church in Madrid.
Pearls ns Well ns Opnls Said to Be
But pearls also have been accused
more than onco of exercising a ma
lign influence. When tho Empress
Eugenlo was finishing her bridal
toilet, before starting for the great
marriage ceremony at Notre Dame,
an old Spanish servant entreated her
not to wear her pearl necklace.
"Remember our Spanish proverb,
the more pearls a woman wears on
her marriage day the moro tears she
will shed after." The empress did
wear the necklace, and her sad fato
is known to all.
With the exception of gamblers,
there aro no such superstitious per
sons in tho world today as royalties.
Both King Edward and the kaiser,
however little they resemble ono
another in many respects, share one
weakness in common. Uncle and
nephew each wears a bangle, and
pins his faith to it for luck. A little
breast-pin, in tho form of a clover
leaf, made of diamonds and emer
alds closely set, was won long years
ago at a raffle by the Empress Eu
genie. Regarding it as a mascot,
she wore it continuously until mis
fortune overwhelmed her, and tho
emperor died. When her only son,
tho prince Imperial, went to fight in
the Zulu war, sho once moro pinned
it on, but took it off forever when
the news came that the poor fellow
had met a soldier's death.

As Tough ns Foot Leather.
Ono of tho most interesting sides of
my kind of work," said a young phy
siological chemist, "is to como upon
tho many instances which occur
where scientific investigation pioves
up to tho hilt somo popular view that
Is expressed In a proverb or century-
"Take, for instance, that saying
which one often hears especially If j
ono has lived much in boarding
houses and restaurants I mean thoj
saying that such and such a pieco of (
meat 'is as tough as boot leather,' or,
'as tough as an old boot.'
"Now, although tho comparison
does not pretend to be scieutiile, It Is
far from being Incorrect, as an elab
orate Investigation made by Metchin
lcoff, tho head of tho Pasteur Insti
tute, in Paris, has recently shown,
and which my own experience veri
fies. "As a matter of fact, much meat
flesh that Is used has a very real af
finity to shoo leather, not only being
hard and tough, but actually in its
"Boot leather is made from tho
hldo of animals, as wo all know
that Is to bay, It is mado of very re
sistant material, which scicntibts
term 'connective tissue.' This con
sists of a very dense mass of flbio,
mingled with living elements, called
connectivo tissue cells.' This tissuo
is very durablo, and henco it is em
ployed for boots and shoes.
"In tho case of old animals, their
organs, and, to a lesser degree, their
flesh becomes mingled with a connec
tivo tissuo, which renders tho ilesh
tough and unpalatablo when it gets
Into tho hands of cooks or house-i
wives. Practically, it Is as 'tough as
old shoo leather!' "
