When the stranger arrives at Seville
and Toledo and the guides conduct
him to the cathedrals of these old
cities, he Is struck with their mag-
nificence and the abundance of the
pearls which are their finest decora-
tions. These pearls came from the
bay of Panama, and date from the
epoch when the Spaniards, at the
zenith of their glory, made the con-
quest of America, says the Jewelers’
These Panama pearls rival the most
beautiful pearls of the Orient. Quite
recently, in the spring of 1899, a hut
of ir> years found an oyster contain-
ing a pearl which was sold at Paris
for 50,000 * francs. For his portion he
received 20.000 francs.
A considerable quantity of pearls
procured at Panama are sent to New
York, where they do not lack pur-
chasers. One consignment exceeded
in value 750.000 francs. The island
pearls are thus denominated on ac-
count of the archipelago in which the
oyster fisheries are carried on. It is
opposite the bay of Panama. The
archipelag > is composed of sixteen

Precaution Against Accident*.
In the great railroad tunnel In Sax-
ony the company makes sure that
there shall be no collisions by having
a staff which must be in the posses-
sion of the engineer taking his train
through the tunnel. There is only or.e
staff, so that only one train can go
through or be in the tunnel at the
same time. Every engineer who ar-
rives at the mouth of the tunnel Is
stopped and he is not allowed to go
anead until the staff Is given to him.
If the staffs is at the other end of the
tunnel be must wait until it conies
! souuion ol
south. The rt meily, says Mr. Ivuntz.
, lies In the substitution if monkeys
j for the negro.
Thus far Mr Kuntz's plans only lock
to the replacing of the negro by a
i monkey in the cotton-pi king season.
He says he knows monkeys anil their
capacities, and is confident that they
can be so trained as to make the
most efficient kind of cotton-pickers.
They can not only pick as well as the
I negro, but they can pick twice as much
I in a given time. There are other ad-
vantages attendant upon their eni-
j plovment. Due is that they will not
i demand wages, and this item will ho
an Immense advantage to the planter
Neither will they form labor unions,
and the union principle that is gaining
a foothold among the negroes is not
encouraged on the big plantations.
Mr. Kuntz derives hi-, knowledge of
monkeys from obseivation of them in
i Africa, of which country he is a na-
tive. He is so well satisfied that they
1 can be trained to do the work in the
! cotton fields that "he now has a large
I consignment of thorn on the way from
that country, which ho proposes to
employ m a ,ottoa plantation which
lie owns. He says that Ills experience
lias demonstrated to his satisf iction
that the monkey can bo trained to
; perform any kind of manual labor re-
quiring skill and application. The
work must not be too laborious, as the
i monkey has not tha strength requisite
for heavy labor.
Train* Need Not Stop.
Among the patents which have been
recently granted in the United States
may be mentioned one issued to John
W. Jenkins, New A'ork City, for an in-
teresting system whereby passengers
are to be discharged from a train with-
out the necessity of stopping at sta-
tions. The characteristic feature of the
Invention resides in the employment
of a number of "saddle cars," which
are successively taken up aud dropped
from the moving train, and through
the medium of which passengers may
enter or leave a train without iuter-
rupting its movement.
Patent* In France.
In order that a patent may be ob«
tained in France, the three following
conditions are necessary; That the
invention be absolutely new; that it
possess an industrial character; that
It be not contrary to public order or
security; good morals, or the laws of
the country. An Invention is not con-
sidered new when, previous to the
date of filing of the application, it has
received sufficient publicity in France
or abroad to render It easy of imita-
