Florence Hinkle, Famous Soprano,
"Miss Hinkle has taken a foremost
place among the great oratorio
lingers of this country." asserted the
musical critic of the New York Eve-
ning Mail in commenting on her en-
deavors in the Brahms Festival held
in Carnegie Hall New York City,
under the dual direction of Walter
and Frank Damrosch. "and in no-
thing has she shown greater musical
feeling (The Roquiem), p. more ex-
quisite quality of voice or a finer
poise than on Saturday. The audi-
ence, and the musicians on the stage
beside her, broke into applause five
times after her number."
"Florence Hinkle's voice Is gener-
ally regarded as America's best," ex-
claimed the Philadelphia Record.
Afiss Hinkle will appear at the
High School Auditorium Nov. 22.

weighed 3,024 carats, but was cut
into eleven separate stones.
The "Koh-i-Noor," or -.Mountain |
of Light," is probably the m06t fa-
mous diamond in the world. It is
part of the crown Jewels of Great
Britain. Its history is hidden in
myth. A Hindu legend says it was
discovered in the mines of Golconda.
Its authentic history can be traced
back to 1516, when it belonged to
the Moguls. After the capture of
Lahore toy the British troop6 it was
given to Queen Victoria by the sol-
diers. Experta have placed its value
at 11-1 million dollars. Its orig-
inal weight is said to have been 793
oarats. It weighs now 1011-1 carats.
I The "Great Mogul," another world
fssnous diamond, was found in the
] mines ot Golconda about 1650. It
belonged to the great Mogul Sha
Jeha. It weighed before cutting "87
carats. The primitive methods in
cutting reduced it to 280 carats.
I The "Orloff," the great diamond in
the top of the Imperial scepter of
' Russia, is somewhat smaller than
the "Great Mogul," but very similar
la appearance. All sorts of legends
surround its origin. It was stolen
from the Nadir Sha and sold to
Prince Orloff of Russia ia 1772. The
prince paid $450,000 for it and gave
the seller a life annuity of $20,000.
He then gave It to Empress Cath-
erine II. It weighed after cutting

ent value at 11-2 million. Its
weight ia 106 carats.
Among recent "finds" the "Jagers-

the most famous stone la America.
It weighs 44 3-5 carats. It was
bought by Mrs. Edward B. McLean
for $160,000. It is considered a

fortune has followed In Its wake.
The "Star of the South" from

which was tost by cutting. The em-
