An expert in gema ha lately called
attention to a property In the dia
mond which has not hithtrto been
fully appreciated. In a paper by
Jtobert Uoyle, publbhed in the trans
action of the Royal society, mention
1m uiariu of a diamond that became
phophorexceut simply by the heat of
the hand, absorbed light by being
held uear a candle and emitted light
on being briskly rubbed.
The obHcrvationa by Mr. Kunz, the
gem exert referred to, confirm
Huyle' Htateuent that diamond be
come ihihore8cent In the dark
after exMMure to the sunlight or eiee
trie light, but they also show that all
diamonds emit light by being rubbed
on wood, cloth or metal.
'J'lii property la an imjortant one,
at it will enable the non-expert to
ditingui.-h between the true dia
mond and oilier bard stones as well
ad patte, none of which exhibits tl.l
jthenoiuenou. This property is evi
dently not electric, as Is clearly
shown by its being visible when tin
gem is rubbed on metal.
"The residence of Archbishop Su
toll! was formerly the residence ol
Stephen A Douglas," said a gentle
man who has been a frequent so
journer at Washington during the
past forty years. "I was well ac
quainted with Senator Douglas, and
often had the pleasure of calling
upon him in that house. It was on
of a row of three houses, all of them
residences of senators. I do not
know how the name came to le ap
plied to those houses, but In the 60e
they were called Minnesota row.
Senator Douglas lived on the corner,
Senator llice of Minnesota livvd next
to him, and Senator John -' Breck
inridge of Kentucky occupied tht
third house. They were regarded at
that time as among the handsomest
and most fashionable houses in the
District of Columbia. Although they
are in a thickly settled part of the
national capital to-day, at that time
they were surrounded by woods,
commons, pastures and all other evi
dences of suburban residence.
"People nowadays have a distorted
idea of the hospitality of ante-bellum
times. The truth is, t ho customary
hospitality of the national capital
was Southern hospitality, and It war
vastly different from the society and
social customs of the present day. J
At that time if any man had ex
tended Wtil or 11,000 or 15,000 upon
an entertainment of one evening, he
would have bcea regarded as unfit
for association with leading men and
women of that day. The mere ex
penditure of largo sums of money
would have savored too much of the
shop and of the salesman.
"Senator Douglas was one of the
most charmiug entertainers I have
ever known. In common with other
prominent men ot the day, he bad
his regular servants, and they served
refreshments such as were in those
days to be found In the homes of the
plain eople and of the leading
people of the country. No one ever
heard of set dinners with regular
decorations in a stilted manner, such
as prevail at the present time. The
entertainments were of a primitive
nature, that is to say, they were of n
home-like nature.
"I want to tell you one thing con
cernlug Senator Douglas which ought
to be known to all men. The pre
vailing Impression, and one that has
long prevailed, is that Senator Doug
las was given to habits of overindulg
ence In strong drink. I know that
to be an erroneous Idea. He was
exceedingly abstemious when coin
pared with other men. As a matter
of fact, I do not believe that he had
any secial liking for strong drink,
but felt it Incumbent upon him to
take part in the social customs of the
"Senator Ilobert Toombs, ol
Georgia, was in those days a frequent
and welcome visitor in the houses in
that row. lie was one of the most
charming, mild-mannered gentlemen
I have ever knowu. It is true that
In the senate chamber and upon all
public occasion he appeared as a
man of extreme Independence ot
character and of absolute lndejcnl
ence of utterance; but in private life,
In his own home, he was one of the
most unpretentious, quiet and lovable
men I have ever knowu. Then- was
a prevailing Impression that he m
one time said that he would 'call the
roll of his slaves on Bunker Hill
under the shadow of the monument;'
but Senator Toombs neversaid any
thing of the kind. He was constant
ly saying sarcastic and bitter thing
concerning the abolitionists of that
day, and that expression, which was
invented by some writer of the time,
seemed so characteristic of the man
that it was generally accepted as true
that he had made such an expression.
He was always aggressive and alert
concerning the interests of hit slate
and the southern section of the coun
try. He was always a gentleman,
and never so o (Tensive as to give
utterance to a remark which would
have made him disagreeable to gen
tlemen with whom he constantly as
sociated on terms of personal friend
"Another thing that appear to me
as remarkable is th change which
has oecarmi in official life in the
national capital. Ia the days brfore
the war it was customary for (tentle
mcn from the South who came to
Washington as members of the house
of representatives or as senators each
to bring with him a young man who
was to act as private secretary for the
rrpeepf feting trained in politics,
becauK politics was the gentlemanly
t profession of th Southern people at
that tlm. lhe private aacretaiyea
a representative or of a senator was
regarded as a student of politics, and
bis standing was such as a student of
Yale or Harvard might obtain In the
citie where thoae Institutions are,
According to his family history and
ancestry and his own personal merit
the private secretary of a senator or
representative was received in soil
ety, and he was regarded as a highly
favored gentleman. Nearly all of
those young men attained or achieved
distinction as officers and soldiers iu
the confederate army during the dvil
war, and a number of them have be
come uiciubers of congress since the
conflict closed." Philadelphia Times.

The report that Gen. Weyler is
going to pursue a policy of severity
in Cuba does not necessarily mean
that he prootes to exterminate the
insurgents as fust as he finds them
und vindicate the authority of Sln
by adding to history a great atrocity
it may simply signify that he intends
to substitute systematic and effective
Hghting for the desultory and di-wi
pointing hostilities that have so far
prevailed: for it is a notorious fact
that both tides have failed to live ui
to their opportunities. In a general
way, the contest up to this time has
heen a signal illustration of bella
mollila soft war and the world
has accordingly been slow to take it
seriously. There are said to be 200,'
000 Spanish troops in the country,
with forty-six battle ships and gun
boats surrounding the coasts, and yet
ihis formidable force has not yet
fought a real battle. The Insurgent
army Is not so large, but it has fallen
equully short in the way of asserting
its power. We have had plentiful
news of so-called battles, which
should have shaken the island like so
many earthquakes, supposing them
to have been equal in fierceness and
gorintss to tne uescripnons, uui
which were iu fact nothing but skir
mishes. According to these accounts,
there must have been as much pow
der and lead used iu such engage
mcnts as would have sufficed uuder
ordinary circumstances to kill men
by thousands; but the lists of casual
ties go to show that the degree of
danger was only about the same as
that of being struck by lightning.
It is officially certified that within
the last mouth five important battles
have taken place Taroua, San An
toma, Paso Real, Caudalaria and San
Cristobal and in the most sanguin
ary of them the losses did not aggre
gate over 100. In some Instances,
the number of troops engaged was
0,000 to 8,000, and the reports tell in
tropical luxuriauce of rhetoric how
they charged with fixed bayonets,
and formed hollow squares, and
fought hand to hand; but somehow
all of these exciting and picturesque
things were comparatively harmless.
On one occasion, an officer fell w ith
twenty bullets in his body, but his
whole command escaped without a
scratch. There are thrilling stories
of tho brave exploits of all arms of
the service, but they invariably end
in a paltry showing of dead and
wounded, und the intelligent reader
is left to wonder why thvre was not
morlumuge done, even by accident,
when there was so much shooting.
As a rule, these battles lasted all day,
and at night the two armies retired
in good order, and marched away
from each other before the next
morning. This is a kind of warfare
that suggests comic tqa-ra. and makes
it difficult for the average iersou to
lielicvo that the combatants are In
earnest. It must ! either that they
are merely amusing themselves, or
that they are the ooret marksmen
in the woild and It may tie, alas,
that thern are great liars among
During onr civil war, it was said
that a federal and confederate com
mai'der ho confronted each other
in Missours had an amicable under
standing that when the supply of
forage and subsistence in a given
country was found to lie insufficient
for both of tliem, one should with
draw. Possibly this theory of mili
tary courtesy ami Hivommodnlion is
applied in Cuba. At any rate, the
opposing forces do not long remain
in lite same Im'ality; and w hen they
ilium together, it appetir to lie the
result of inadver't uce rather than of
lreii)fditatiou. Clett. Wejlcr prob
ably Ulieves that such strategy has
gone far enough, and Hint it would
now lie well to Mifplcmciit the glit
tering and fantastic "ostentation ol
despiteful arms" with some practical
and divisive fighting. To that ex
tent and w ithin the laws and usages
of civilized warfare, he will be re
garded with general respect. The
world is tired of a contest that is
lielng prolonged by skirmishing,
when it should be Hiil.-hrd by battle.
This view is entirely consistent w ith
the idea of giving ynimlliy and en
couragement to the insurgents.
There Is po reason to believe that
they are rq-ial to the emergency, and
that they r.iu achieve their independ
ence in a t :ir and square teat of cour
age and e t il tintne-p with the soldiers
sent against them. They diaerw
success; and it is to be hoped that the
advent of tien. Weyler will make
thecliaitiV for them to compass it.

On a recent run of the battleship
Indiana from Newport to Hampton
Roads, all the guns ot her battery,
including the. 11-inch rifles, were
fired. It was the first time they fired
on board ship, and the test showed
that the gun mounts and their Instal

a result was to be expected; so the
test was not so important in this re

Professor Letxon Balllet, professor
of engineering and chemistry and
physics at the Arkansas college, at
Arkadelphla, Ark., has discovered
new method for the manufacture ol
illuminating gas. The gas is color
less, capable of giving a very high
heat, and will yield a 12-camlle
power from an ordinary illuminating
burner. The process is purely client
leal and Is the cheaiiest knowu. The
discovery is attracting attention in

Hampered continually by the
strained condition of its budget, the
Italian government is carrying on
excavations at Pompeii, and this lo
cality remains an inexhaustible field
of discovery. Under the direction of
Sig. Cozza, the engineer in charge of
the excavations, a whole Roman
mansion has been discovered lately,
the decorations and furnitures of
which are in a perfect state of preser
vation. This house was a very im
portant one. It occupied a whole
isola, or city block, In the.northern
part of the town. The inside yard,
as it was customary, is in a rectangu
lar shape, very large, and surrounded
on its tour sides by a portico support
ed by eighteen Corinthian columns.
Between these columns were found
nine white marble vasques, four ta
bles resting on a base decorated w ith
chimera's legs, and nine statuettes of
Bacchus, fauns and cupids. The
walls, painted black and red, are dec
orated at the top with a nearly intact
cornice, richly ornamented. The dif
ferent rooms, which 0on on tile
atrium, are embellished with frescoes
of the highest interest. On the walls
of the main hall is a frieze outstretch-
lug with the most exquisite taste and
spirited execution. It represents
scenes of every-day life, with winged
cupids as performers. Many subjects
of similar style have already been
found In Pompeii, but none so well
preserved and of such delicate
One of these scenes represents a
wreath shop;" on one side the mak
ing, on the, other side the sale of the
wreaths is figured. Further is a
"fuller's workroom." Two women
are treading on the cloth, which is
lying in a large bucket; a little far
ther are seen two cupids stretching
the wet cloth on a drying loom. An
other cupid shows to the forewoman

composition, and ending it, are two
women folding the dry cloilt which
has been brought to them.
A "goldsmith; shop" is not less in
teresting. A cupid is at the disk
weighing on a scale a jewel which a
rich lady customer, seated facing
him, has Just selected; while other
cupids are hammering on a delicate
anvil silver and gold objects. Next
is a "chariot race." This fresco gives

like our modern J nkeys, they are

graceful frieze mentioned above,
three separate fresco panels constitute
the main decoration. Their dimen

of the Theban legendary history.

and is well known to those familiar
with the ntediillic history of the
American revolutionary period. Tak
ing his inspiration from the antique,
Benjamin Franklin caused a medal
to be struck at tho Paris Mint on
which Young America is personified
by the child hero in his cradle stran
gling the two serpents. These snake

armies. On the reverse of tlw said
medal are the date of their annihila

of Suratoga and Yorktown. In the
Pontpeiian fresco Jupiter is seated on
a ft, rone and contemplating with a
radiant smile the infant hern's ex
ploit, while Aletnena, bis mother,
hidden behind the god, follows w itlt
semi anguished, semi-admiring eyes
the progress of the struggle. The
Idea of the infant Hercules strangling
two serpent is symbolical of the vajo
tory of light over darkness, of good
over evil, and of free and united Hel
las over barbarism and tyranny.

"How many people depend almost
