Costly Crowns.—Tho costliest crown is that which is worn by the Czir of Russia on ceremonial occasions. It is surmounted by a cross formed of five magnificent diamonds, resting upon an immense uncut but polished ruby. The ruby rests on eleven largo diamonds, which in turn rest on a mat of pearls. The coronet of the Empress is said to contain the most beautiful collection of diamonds ever massed together. A domestic poisoned herself at Birmingham because she could not attend a church picnic.
Regardless of the alleged over-production of cycles, the Royal Enfield Company are still unable to keep pace with their orders. Order early from Speedwell Cycle Works.— [A.dvt ]•
