Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - October 26, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas z HrTnfllN�M* DAILY NE 81 N��A ^ MORNING, OCTOBER 26,1890. FACTS ABOUT OPALS. Bow tU� Stone XV n* iir-might Down from 11* High K*tiit�. No procloos stono linn had a boiler exporionoo of thn ttnklonofi* of popular 1 favor than has tho opal. In Ibo early days o( tho world's history thin tfom wnn prized above all othors, and wan louleod upon as tho onYbodtmoiit ot nvory thiriff that was lucky. A Roman damo prized nono of hor poasnsHioiis so >iicrljl.v ashor opals, and fortunate, indeed, did slid consider herself if sho happened to ho tho ownor of a morn than ordinarily . beautiful spoclnicn. Tho fuir fame of tbo opal romainrtd untarnished throughout tho Middlo Ages; and two or three hundred yuars ago mir nnrciRtors showed ft fond no ha for thin bountiful stone which rivaled that displayed for it by tho Romans. Hut by a �trance freak of fashion tho opal was brought down from its high estate. It is becoming popular again now; but In tbo earlier days of tho century it was almost, valueless, so great was the dlsoredlL whluh superstitious people had east upon It This dUllko to tbo opal has been attributed to tho Russians, for thn r-tono is so unpopular among the subjects ot tho Czar that should one of them happen to descry an opal, nothing" will in* tluco him or her to mako any purchase that day. Thoro la a universal belief among thorn that every kind of bad luck in Hiiro to follow transactions water at very groat deptTTsTsTh most ports of tho world near tho freezing point. Further, tho pressuro upon every square inch of the surface ot a body under throe miles of sea water, instead of lining 1ft pounds, as in atmospheric air, is throe tons, or. In other words, fl,-720 pounds. It was not, perhaps, Irrational to suppose that a sponge or a delicate 11 sh would bo crushed into nothingness if cvory square Inch of its stirfaoo wore subjected to such a weight as a score of tho strongest coal-heavers in the world would staggor undor. It rather humbles one's pride In the prowess oT human reason to see how sometimes its apparently most cogent and most readily aceoptod argumonts suddenly lose ali their force whon unexpectedly confronted with facts. Tho skilled ornlLliologist, after pointing out that tho owl in tho barber's shop several hundred was so badly stuffed that it oould not bo bridge*, taken to reprnsent either an owl or any possible member of tho bird creation, , might well bo disconcerted whon tho ltn- ' possibility stepped down from its porch and proved to bo not a stuffed owl, but a live ono. liven lawyers and law givers, theologians and political econo- i mists, have occasionally made mts- i takes, and the votarioa of natural 1 science are also human. Now that wo know that animal life can . bo and Is supported under enormous pressuro in the cold, dark depths, MATRIMONIAL SOCIETY. A Wifo Kn.ilaln* Actual Injury from ill* 1,u*h of CunMortUim. It Is a curious clrcumstanco that within a few months tbo highest court in not fewer than four Statoa has passed upon this question in action brought by a wifo against another woman for alienating the affections of her husband. Such suits are rare compared with tho numbor of corresponding ones brought by a hunlmnd against anothor man. It la not loss curiouB to note tbo conflict of opinion In thoso four oason. In Maine and Wisconsin tho right of tho wife was denied. In Yormont and Now York it was afllrmed. There has never boon any question as to tho rightota M'iband to bring such a an it. But tbo Supremo Court ot Wisconsin holds that tbo right of a wife to tho society of her husband is not tho would insist on Icooplng bis knoos bent, sarao as his right to her society. Tho and wo thought to make him straighten loss of her husband's Booioty is not an bis legs by stringing him up In tho air injury to her person, property, means of and letting him hang thero, but tho po-support or character.

Tho prisoner's name was Urant. Ho. had boon eon vie tod or trying to soil goods under falso pretention. ITo was first sent to tho work-house, whore ho lived twet.ty-two days without eating. Tboy brought him from tho hospital department of tho work-houso to tho jail on a strotchor. When ho was first locked up ho was a man weighing two hundred pounds, but ho starved himself until he became like a shadow. Wo stood hWn up on tbo stone iloor, and ho would fall his full length us if bo had boon a corpse, bruising his forehead, and yet gave no indication that ho was in pain. For thirty-six days not a morsel of food passed his lips. Wo placed milk In his cell, but it romalnod untouched. Ho montofa forry between riro on tho north and tho town of Queonsforry on tho south. Tho ostuary hero is a Uttlo less than a mile and a half wide, and very opportunely a small rocky Islet exists almost in the center, which, formerly tho homo of a horde of pir^tos, now becomes tho cenLcal piur of tho groat bridge. Curiously* also, that part of tho gulf lying between yuoon.nforry and Fifo contains t*io only rock to bo found for miles above tho mouth, thus marking tho ono appropriate place whoro ndo-qtiate foundations for so mammoth a structure can bo obtalnod.

A man with a market basket on hia arm was slowly toiling up tho incline of the Brooklyn bridge the other day, when his attention was attracted to a boy on tho roof of a building about two hundred foot away. As Boon as tho man stopped tho boy began Imitating his walk, which was reudorod ungraceful by a lame leg. Owing to tho confusion it was impossible to hoar whateachsaid, but tho man with tbo basket soeracd to exclaim:. "If I only had my hands on you I'd mako you sing a different tune in about a minute!" And the hoy soomod to reply: "Come, new. old chap, but don't got husky ovor a hit of fun." Tho man on tho bridgo was taken with a audden fit of coughing.

Tho girls aro then sent to a regular harem school, whoro thoy aro educated and taught various accomplishments. Those intended for the Sultan's harom are taught music and French. If, however, as thoy grow older, thoy aro found to bo stupid or wanting In good looks, they aro sold as slaves to tho lower nobility. Girls from Porsia and Afghanistan are in great demand, partlcu lady from tho latter country. Circassians generally supply the Turkish slavo market not only with their own children, but with girls who havo been stolon in their infancy from Russia and tho Roumanian provlncos of Hungary.

Some few yoars ngo thoso thefts bo' came so common that tho Hungarian Government instituted an inquiry into tho subject and slnco then tho trade has decreased, but it is still carried on socrotly to a certain oxtont.
