Bryan Gets on His Deadly Work
On 65 of Them.
LINCOLN, Neb., April I.-Sixty
five democratic editors of-Nebraska
were the quests last night at an in
formal dinner tendered by Win,
J. nryan at the Lindcll hotel. The
editors mainly were old friends and
acquaintances of Mr. Bryan and the
function was in the nature of a fam
ily affair. Mr. Bryan arrived from
Kansas City this evening and went
directly to the hotel where the dem
ocratic state editorial association had
been holding its annual meeting dur
ing the day. He was the center of
the enthuniatic group of admirers and
political friends. He let it be known
that his talk at the dinner was in no
way a political one.
Mr. Bryan was the last speaker,
and. he was greated with an unusual
display of enthusiasm. He spoke
of the splendid work of the democra
tic press in Nebraska and especially
praised the country press which he
said often came nearer reflecting
public opinion than the more pre
tentious Journals. Mr. Bryan (aid
mot of his talk would be private to
the bona fide Democratic and Popu
list editors and he requested all other
persons to withdraw.

of a warning that evidence had been
received that an anarchist attack
might be made upon the members of
the exchange, the Consolidated stock
exchange has decided to close its gal
leries. Similar warnings are said to
have ben sent to the officials of the
other exchanges including the cotton
exchange and the New York Stock
Exchange. An official of the latter
institution, however, would not admit
that any warning had been received
from police headquarters.
The gallery of the stock exchange
has been closed for a month or more,
and the Cotton exchange gallery has
been" closed, t'mv Monday. In the
case of both exchanges the excuse
was given that repairs were to be
made. The gallery of the consolid

visited since the ttock exchange
closed their gallery to the public.
But the only precaution taken by the
Consolidated is to be another spec

I The Mystery o! a Gem.
A small market wagon drawn by one
bony home pulled up In front of a
pawnbroker' Hbop lu Paris. A young
countryman and a girl sat on a cross
board at the foro end, the man a
strapping fellow, the girl comely and
rosy as a peony. The girl descended
from the seat and went into the pawn
broker's. Ho was a white headed old
man and, unlike most of bis trade, be
"I would like, monsieur, If you would
be so kind as to lend me a hundred
francs on this."
She produced a pearl the size of a
nutmeg. It. was of a very unusual
shade. The pawnbroker looked at It
for a long while, then said:
'How did you come by It?"
"Alphouse Alphonso Is to marry me
has bad It ever since his mother died.
We wish to be married, and we bsve
"now long ago did Alphonse's moth
"When Alphonso was a baby, more
than twenty years ago."
"And where did Alphonse's mother
"Alphonse's mother was when young
lady's mold to a countess. Just before
the countess' death she gave It to her
maid. The countess died of smallpox,
and all but her maid bad deserted her."
"Did the countess say anythlug about
the value of the gift?"
"IIow could Hlie since she was dying
and could scarcely speak? Don't you
think t Is worth so much as a hundred
francs? Can't you lend anything on
It?" she asked anxiously. "
"Does Alphonso wish to sell It?"
"He has kept It for bis mother's
sake. He never knew a mother's love,
but be thinks a great deal about what
his mother was like. He would rather
pawn It" . 1
There was a look of truthfulness and
innocence in the girl's face that won
the old man's confidence.
"So you and Alphonse are tover.8 and
wish to borrow 100 francs on this for
the purpose of being married?"
. "Yes, monsieur, if you think it is
worth so much." !
The pawnbroker handed her four na
poleons, took her address and sent her
off Jubilant ' He saw her go out and
communicate her happiness to her
lover by showing him the four shining
gold pieces. Then they drove away,
both talking at once and gesticulating.
Evidently they bad never before bad
inch a windfall. .
The pawnbroker possessed a small
Kbrary of books giving the history of
valuable articles. As soon as the girl
had gone be took down a volume on
celebrated gems that had passed
through strange hands. Turning over
the leaves, he at last came, to an ac
count of the disappearance about a
century and a half ago of two large
diamonds from the English crown. A
pearl of extraordinary size and luster
had disappeared at the same time. No
trace bad ever been discovered of the
missing gems, and after so long a
period no expectation was entertained
of their recovery.
Here was a little gem the size of the
tip of a lady's finger that a peasant
had kept from bis babyhood and was
doubtful if he could borrow $20 on It
nad it been displayed in a jeweler's
case, of the thousands who looked at
it not one would probably have seen
any difference between it and the large
and brilliant jewels resting beside it
But for half a century this old pawn
broker had done nothing but Inspect
valuable articles, chiefly jewels. To
him the pearl stood alone. That singu
lar something which has no Identity,
no personality, no essence, but which
we call experience, told him that he
had in his possession a gem that a
hundred and fifty years ago had been
stolen from the English crown.
A week passed. The couple who bad
pawned the Jewel were celebrating
their wedding day. There was little
wherewith to celebrate, but they made
the most of what they had. A letter
came by the post summoning them to
Paris at once to see the pawnbroker.
They were much frightened, fearing
that they were to be called upon to re
deem the pearl, and they had spent
the money. Alphonse put the horse
in the wagon, and they drove Into the
WhenUhey reached the pawnbroker's
be sent them into' a private room,
where they waited half an hour in sus
pense. Then the pawnbroker entered
with a man, an Englishman.'
"This is the couple," the former said.
"You may question them if you like,
but you will get nothing."
' The government will be happy to
pay the reward that has so long been
offered and ask no questions," replied
the other., . .
The Englishman took from a wallet
three notes, tfo for 1,000 each and
one for f500, equivalent to about $12,
000, and handed them to the groom,
who drew back, frlgbtened. ,;;
"A wedding present for you," said
tho pawnbroker, and he gave an ex
plunatlon of how the money came to
be paid him. At first Alphonse feared
they, were trying to draw him into a
trap Indeed, ho would not take the
money till he had called in a notary
to whom he , was . accustomed to sell
vegetables, who looked the matter
through carefully and assured him that
the transaction was f air and square.
On their wedding night, after placing
their fortune In a savings bank, the
young couple drove, their little cart
home with a happiness in their hearts
that came to them but once in their
lives. . . . . 7 .
Nothing was ever learned as to the
wanderings of the pearl from the time;
It was taken from the British crown
till it was given to the peasant's moth
